    How and Why I Stopped Applying Heat to My Hair for a Year

    Confession time!! I posted the picture below on Instagram several months ago (March) to advertise SheaMoisture’s newest products. I received many compliments on my hair. But in reality, I experienced heat damage. A month prior to this shoot, I had a silk press. It usually lasts a couple of weeks, but I tried to maintain it for a month. EPIC FAIL!!

    Bad Hair Movie Review

    On my channel, I give my thoughts on the movie, Bad Hair, a satire horror movie that was written and directed by Justin Simien, who is also the writer and director of Dear White People.

However, I had to give a review for this particular movie as it dives into the issue of self-acceptance of natural hair in the workplace. So here’s the Bad Hair Movie Review. Enjoy!!!

    Affordable Black Owned Fashion and Hair Businesses

    A couple of years ago, I had a bad experience at a nail salon. I regularly go to this nail salon every two weeks to get my usual, a gel manicure.

I was in shock because I came in to relax and left with a bloody finger and unsatisfied feeling. Venting to my friend led me to find a black owned nail tech ASAP. I found one and…
