I have now done a retwist (the fuzz was more than I could handle) and have introduced beeswax and Jamaican black castor oil into the routine. The thing I will need to re-inforce in myself is that locing is not an excuse to not take care of my hair. It will still need moisture.
More than anything I think this will be an exercise in discipline for me. Discipline has not always been my strength and I am slowly trying to change that about myself. By slowly I mean, this might take the rest of my life, but whatever.
In addition to my interest in gaining more discipline through this process, I need to fall in love with my hair again. I have been natural for 8 years, but I have struggled to find where I fit in on the naturalista spectrum. These naturalistas do not play out here on the interwebs, y’all. For as many open and free loving naturalistas there are the polar opposite, preaching a strict doctrine of pressing your own avocado pits for oil.
Coils and curls are beautiful and should be embraced, and as the language changes about how we talk about our hair, I also need to make sure that I take it upon myself to continue to love my hair no matter what.
Let the journey continue, onward and downward (ha!)
I am squealing about Rihanna and her new gray hair look! Now this may not be everyone’s cup of tea but the silver locks are doing it for me. This is Rihanna’s second go around rocking gray locks but i guess the second time is the charm because I am floored. The pictures were featured in the German magazine Tush.
Also check out Dascha Polanco from OITNB at NYFW rocking silver locks as well.
If you are anything like me, knowledge makes you feel like an unstoppable warrior. I have only been seriously dabbling in makeup for the last 6 months so when I kept seeing brushes on different vloggers sites I was completely clueless. Then i stumbled upon this handy little guide. Hope it helps you as much as it has helped me!
DAMN GOOD. I have just been dabbling in the world of hair extensions for a decade now and am no stranger to the name of lace fronts. However, it has only been recently that affordable lace fronts of good quality and no glue/tape have hit the larger market. My journey began on YouTube and after falling into a vortex of videos and links to wig companies I found exactly what I was looking for
