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),

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 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,
In continuation with my discussion on the psychology of having 4C Hair, yes the psychology, and how we honestly feel about it let’s discuss the big chop. To be honest, since we’re speaking honestly, I wish I had a blog to read when I cut my permed hair off and was faced with my natural hair. Not knowing how to style it, having hardly any Youtube videos to watch, and no one around me had any advice outside of getting my hair straighten was frustrating.
Finally I’m aware of this event way ahead of time. Unfortunately even with knowing in advance I still waited to the last minute to purchase tickets. SMH. Missed out on the opportunity to get the VIP tickets which would have been a sweet deal. Anyway, this International Natural Hair Meetup is taking place in most major cities so be sure to check out the site for your city. nnhmd.com
For the DMV area we will have the pleasure of meeting some of my personal favorite youtubers,
Some folks call it “Slave Hair”, “Nappy”, “Knotty”, “Beady Bead” so on and so forth. For some reason, the 4C hair texture label has received a bad wrap. All these labels are mostly negative which leave many naturalistas desiring for a different texture. And let’s be honest, who would want to be associated with any negative connotations?
If you noticed, you hardly find anyone to come out and say proudly “YES,
