I have not taken this site down because I want this to serve as a standing resource for any hair questions that I encounter along my journey.
I have restarted my locs, working on building a family and in doing so my focus has shifted away from hair and more to surviving and thriving as a black woman in America. I am still available if you have hair questions but come visit me at BlackMaggie.com if you want to see my latest passion project.
Here’s where I am on my hair journey:
There I was just minding my own business following the instructions on some random video about how to dry my hair using the “banding” method.
Fast Forward to me Looking Like Homie the Clown, which I was forced to rectify in a public bathroom like MacGyver. So you Know the first thing I did was Fix my hair. Followed by analyzing what went wrong.
1 – I don’t have just one type of hair. Even more the combination doesn’t Show up in neat sections So my 3C is right in the middle of my 4a and my 4b.
2 – I didn’t check her resume . I was in the middle of a natural hair Love fest and got Got. I have no clue where she’s from, how long she’s been natural or what doctrines she follows when it comes to hair.
3 – I failed to follow my instinct. There was a small still Voice that Said. “She don’t know what she’s talking bout” … because my inner voice speaks Confused broken English. From the sheer number of products she slapped in her head I should have known she was a Kitchmatologist.
I shared this to let you all know that even an 11 year Veteran in this Natural Hair world is susceptible to being ”Had” Don’t let those moments discourage you. Hold your head high, do what you can to fix it , and move on!
Happy New Year !
