Last week, I had the pleasure of making a (last minute) trip to Memphis, TN. It was seriously last minute but so well worth the stress. If you already follow me on Snapchat (skinnygotcurves), you witnessed my entire trip with me.  I shared some of my experience on Periscope (skinnygotcurves) too. My family wanted to visit the National Civil Rights Museum along with other sights in Memphis. I was interested in seeing the museum along with getting a taste of Memphis food.

The rant continues. These salons and stylists will keep kitchen beauticians and YouTube vloggers in business, I swear. These braiders ain’t loyal!

I just got to thinking about all the reviews I have read about different braiding salons and why I stayed away from professional styling (in general) for so many years. I’m not bitter (maybe a little), but I need to let this truth out so that maybe ONE stylist or owner can read it.

Oh you didn’t think I was going to forget Part two of my vlogger list now, did you? Oh no! We’re going to keep this going for the rest of the month! As I mentioned in my initial post, I’m paying tribute to the ladies that I started the beginning of my natural hair journey.  I’m creating this series because so many new natural hair youtubers and instagramers pop up everyday,

For the past month and some change, I have been wearing my hair straight.  It has been very … interesting. It’s been two years since I attempted to straighten my hair and I lost my touch. Back in the day day, I used to press my own hair. Lately I had to learn how to straighten my hair again because I just had no clue. Well, while on vacation I had my hair straighten for the first time.

Do you remember your favorite YouTube vloggers from back in the day Circa 2006 -2012? I do. Specifically when it comes to natural hair vloggers. I remember going natural in 2008 and being obsessed with finding new vloggers to watch. Since May is Natural Hair Meet up Day and this year is the 10th anniversary for YouTube, I thought it would be fun to stroll down natural hair memory lane each week.

Hola(Hello)! I have been gone for far too long and I’m sure you are all wondering where in the world have I been? And you’re also probably thinking, “It would be nice if you would post in a consistent manner.” Okay, fine! I told y’all that I needed to work on my consistency issues, see that statement in this video here. Lucky for you, yes you, I’ve been pretty consistent on my weight gain/ fitness journey but not so consistent on my social media accounts,

So people still talking about thigh gaps? Is this seriously a trend and if so why? I need to know why  anyone would want a thigh gap. I guess since I’m on the journey to get “thick”, hearing about thigh gaps makes me gag. I understand wanting to lose weight and tone up but the thigh gap isn’t too appealing to me. Perhaps I’m the anomaly because it “appears”

It seems like the more people of African descent begin to love themselves, the more push back they receive from society. Why are we seeing more stories about policies against natural hair during a time when so many men and women are embracing their natural hair? Can we live?!


I’m sure by now that everyone has heard about school policies that ban “dread locs” and instances where schools have deemed a black child’s hair as “unkept hair” or “too messy” because they claim it violates the school’s hair policy.

Dear Skinny Girls,

The recent release of the Anaconda video via the popular rapper Nicki Minaj has plenty of skinny chicks in an uproar. Well, at least not THIS skinny chick. It was hard for me to take her seriously during her rant of “F**k Skinny B***HES!” Because to be honest if you really looked at Nicki Minaj very closely, you will see she’s still a skinny chick with a big butt.

For “Throwback Thursday” I figured I share with you my first post I wrote for 4chairchick.com. In this particular opinion piece, I explain how the texture discrimination is something that was created within its own community. Outsiders and companies are not to blame for this discrimination. As always, we need to look within to find out who’s at fault.

Lately, there’s been quite a bit of chatter about Joulezy’s latest video “Texture Discrimination.” Here at the 4C Hair Chick Network,
