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.

Hair Braiding Consumer Basics

For decades in the black community you weren’t considered an official braider unless you just arrived from Africa. The laws were non-existent and there was a time that lots of people ran out of edges (hairline damage).

What Just Happened?

Concentration on Hydration

It’s getting cold and I’m starting to get inquiries about products that help keep moisture in harsh cold conditions. IT’S NOT WHAT YOU PUT ON, IT’S WHAT YOU DIDN’T PUT IN!

Slip Free Scarf…

Let’s start off acknowledging that there is no such thing unless it’s a bonnet with unbearably tight elastic. The lies people tell to sell product is unreal. We tried this contraption which is sold at the superstore that shall not be named “W____art” and there has been a nightly struggle to wake up and findContinue reading “Slip Free Scarf…”
