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.
Woo hoo! Shea Moisture has a new professional line of products (along with the price) that are three separate collections. I first heard about this on the blog Beyond Black and White, where the writer talks about her experience with the Smooth Finish line. Check out her post here!
After reading her post, I was interested in trying this line out for myself. I have been experimenting with straight hairstyles lately (I’ll write about it later),

Here’s the actual demo of my wash and go routines that I talked so much about in my previous post.
As you can see in this video the techniques are very simple. I don’t like to complicate things especially when I’m a busy woman. Hope you enjoy and I hope this is helpful.
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.
I’ve been playing around with Wash N Go’s All Summer Long. Here’s a recap of my coils in LIVING COLOR! LOL! Had so much fun and got so many compliments on really good wash and go days. Every wash and go ain’t perfect but you learn to appreciate the imperfection. My wash and go routines are pretty simple. Sometimes I feel like coiling my hair and sometimes I don’t. I go with the flow really.
I adore this product line. Let’s start there. This new line from Shea Moisture is everything I could have dreamed of all mixed in beautiful containers. Oh the moisture! What product line? Well if you can’t tell by the title of this post, the new line is called Jamaican Black Castor Oil by Shea Moisture. It’s purpose is to “Strengthen, Grow & Restore”. For a coily head girl with color treated hair this is everything and more.
In celebration of me going above the milestone of hitting 1,000 subscribers on my YouTube channel, the wonderful people at Primp Beauty Bar (black owned) thought it would be a good idea to offer readers and subs a discount. The discount is good for any total purchase of $10+ and can be used in store or online. Now of course you have more options in store than you do online,
So I’m just swiping away on my phone looking through Instagram photos and recaps of the Essence Festival, to my surprise and glee, see a Shea Moisture post. Now let me tell you, Shea Moisture does a great job of introducing new products. They always introduce new products via social media when there’s a big event going on and they know us ladies are on social media wasting time. I have TOTAL RESPECT for the superb marketing strategy.
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,
