For those of you who aren’t well versed in movie quotes, that’s from the very sophisticated, and my all-time-favorite: Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls. And it was also a very awkward clue as to how I spent my weekend: in CHICAGO! I got to see some of my favorite people in the world and eat at my favorite restaurant in the world. That’s what I like to call a “win-win.”
Although I was out of town all weekend and worked zero hours on the house, I have a cute art project to share with you that I worked on at the end of last week.
I personal think that people like to make some type of controversy between any two or more groups. Hair is hair no matter if it is straight, kinky, wavy, curly, or whatever. Going natural or using chemicals in your hair is your own business. I think people these days like making drama and that is it.When it comes to hair girls are now shaving one side of their heads and making it look cute. Be comfortable in your own skin, scalp, and strands. Just like “Aggressive Naturalista’s” are comfortable with what gave us. If you can take care of your hair even with a perm by all means do what you think is best for you, we are not here to judge no one.

I went back and forth with relaxed and natural hair from middle school to college. For me, hair was just never that deep. From 2009-2010, I transitioned with the help of 16-inch weaves and blowouts until I finally chopped off the remaining relaxer and wore my lovely kinks in a cute, moderately sized, curly ‘fro—who I affectionately named Ebony, due to her stunning beauty, boldness and blackness.
I let Ebony grow out into a massive puff ball and wore her like that for two years. Last year, I cut her off again out of boredom and proudly rocked her the shortest she’s ever been (I was able to feel my scalp for the first time!). Currently, I’m on my Brandy flow with box braids down to my waist. Hair for me has always…
This is what inspired my health movement and my natural hair movement My Natural Sistas has in inspired me multiple times and for anybody who could use some inspiration to push them into a natural healthy life then this YouTube channel is just for you.
This is me just showing how I do my eyebrows everyday. It is so easy and the more you do it the faster you learn and the quicker the routine becomes. It really is like riding a bike once you learn you never forget.
Now that I am natural I have been taking better care of myself. I have been drinking four bottles of water a day (which I think equals up to 8 glasses) and eating a lot of protein. Along with that I have been putting my hair in protective hairstyles. Like today I taught myself how to do flat twists, I am planning on keeping them in for at least a week. I am constantly moisturizing my hair even while it’s in a protective style. Now my hair is longer I take pride in every local and make sure I care for it properly. Other ways I protect my hair is by doing a two strand twists while doing a deep conditioning treatment at night. However today after I co-washed my hair I did flat twists in the front of my hair and let my twa rock out in the back. If you are going natural it’s a great style to wear out and it protects your hair. Next week I will post a tutorial on how to do flat twists.
I have always loved Solange and her style. She really is inspirational to the natural hair movement. Solange is so beautiful she could make any look work from extremely short hair to these beautiful long braids.
I’ve been thinking about going natural for quite a while now, but im not so sure how i would take care of my natural hair since I’ve been getting relaxers..since forever. I would love for some feedback and advice on this topic.
Hey, I totally know what you are going through. I went the same thing when I first began my transition. The best advice I have for you is to do a lot of research on and join forums. I have been natural for going on six months and it is easier than what you would think. When you finally decide what you want to do I suggest that you put some individuals or cornrows in your hair and let your roots grow out. That is called transitioning and doing that will prepare you for the big chop. The more you learn about your hair the more you will learn to love and nurture lovely natural hair. here are some places you should check out. Good luck with your new journey. http://blackgirllonghair.com/ http://www.youtube.com/user/MyNaturalSistas

I made my first YouTube video and decided to share my journey with others who may or may not be going on the same natural hair journey. I put pictures up to show my month by month journey, starting from before I cut my hair and all the way up to.. well now.
