Life is funny, the more things change the more they stay the same. Picture this: It's around 2010 and the gospel that spread around the "Natural Hair Community" was that using Hair Grease was damaging to the hair. It was so damaging that the entire community should forego using the products and . . .
I honestly didn't think that I would make a "comeback" on this blog. Why? Well, I honestly felt like my new ideas and thought processes would not work well on the current platform. For years, yes years, I wrote down lists of ideas for the blog and YouTube channel. I even thought about creating a . . .
Love the Hair you Wear, indeed. I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the natural hair event, Love the Hair you Wear located at Blind Whino in Washington, D.C. This is the third installment of this annual event and it was well worth the ticket price. In the past years, I heard about this event . . .

This year has definitely been a year of protective styles. I started out with box braids back to back right after I experimented with flat ironed hair. The past couple of years I have really taken my natural hair journey to another level that’s actually exciting. I had to move beyond the same old . . .
By now, I'm hoping that you have read my series on my hair braiding debacle. You can check my post here and here. As promised, I did come up with solutions to avoid the experience I had with braiding shops. Y'all know I can't complain and NOT give solutions, not my style. Looking back on . . .
It took a long time for me to get this final review out and I'm not sure why. :-)I have been using the Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil line since I first reviewed it in August 2014. After that post, I decided to purchase the remaining items in the line to see if they lived up to my . . .
