    High Porosity Hair 101

    I’ve been natural for 8 years but I did not realize the importance of hair porosity until a few years ago. I get many questions on how to care for natural hair. I then found out there are many women who are not familiar with porosity. More focus is on identifying our curl pattern through the hair pattern system that was created by hairstylist, Andre Walker. While I appreciate his creation of the system to give us the basics of identifying our hair, we’ve become so focused on finding out our curl pattern. We even debate on what is considered “4C”…

    Hair Wash Day After Protective Style

    I know you’re thinking. What happened to your YouTube video that you promised, sis? See, what had happened was…I originally recorded a video installing a braidless crochet hairstyle.

    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!! I attempted to preserve it by continuously applying heat to my hair. Not a good idea!! I applied a flat iron after vigorous workouts and experiencing Georgia humidity. After 3 weeks, I was over it and finally washed my hair…

    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. I usually do not have any intentions on doing movie reviews on my channel. 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!!!
