Nappy Out Loud 0.1

So I hope you all rock with me on this. This is the first post of many where I plan to explore the life of being natural in a world that hasn’t quite figured out what that means. These posts are strictly for entertainment/encouragement. I still want it to be easy for you to findContinue reading “Nappy Out Loud 0.1”

The Fine Print

The devil is in the details.  So I thought I’d share a hair journey moment brought to you by moving too fast and not reading enough. So I’ve been rocking the crochet braids this week and getting lots of compliments. One of my coworkers decided that she wanted to try the technique to add aContinue reading “The Fine Print”

The Decision

I listen to The Breakfast Club every morning on iHeart Radio, and since it’s Monday, I thought it would be appropriate to title this post after the famous segment that sometimes feels real, but there’s no way that it is because the stuff is just so extreme, “The Decision”. I chose this name because allContinue reading “The Decision”

The Natural vs Nurture

Remember that post a while back about how we still need to do something to our hair and that being natural is not an excuse to just not do anything at all? I’d like to modify my comments. While I strongly believe that one should refrain from being out in the world appearing that they haveContinue reading “The Natural vs Nurture”

Much of my Helpouts time has been spent doing just that, so I thought that I should share my formula on product selection.   Step One: Eliminate the products that contain, MEA, EDTA and parabens. Don’t be fooled by the front label that boasts of theContinue reading “Product Selection Formula”

Recovery Motivation

The wedding is over, it was absolutely gorgeous, and I get my hair back. There’s a phase that we all go through on the wash day after we know we’ve been acting funny towards our hair. I went into instant heat damage detection mode. I watched every single strand that left my hair and freaked myselfContinue reading “Recovery Motivation”

Nights like this I wish, I’d just cut it Off.

Picture it Cincinnati 2014. I have my cousin’s wedding coming up and I’m extremely excited. It’s been a few days since the Bachelorette Party in Atlanta. The wedding is a week away and  I’m Maid of Honor, which means that I’ll show up in quite a few photos. The bride has requested that we allContinue reading “Nights like this I wish, I’d just cut it Off.”

Stress= Hot Mess

This past weekend I had the pleasure of speaking with the ladies that attended Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. Pi Sigma Zeta Chapter’s  Girlz to Women Retreat.

A great time was hadContinue reading “Stress= Hot Mess”
