Curl Friend Feature – Mrs. Sirmara Pierce, BSN, RN

Women’s health is of utmost importance especially in the black community. There are so many health disparities that black women have to deal with that ot shohld be comsidered a state of emergency. That’s why I’m proud of my Curl Friend Sirmara Pierce for organizing a community health fair in my hometown, Battle Creek MI. I was a very nice event, one of the nices health fairs I’ve ever attended. Sirmara and I went to school together from kindergarten through high school. She was always very intelligent, ambitious and compassionate. She obviously became a nurse because she likes to comfort…

Naturally Proud & Free… Forever

Why do people wanna terrorize people into doing what they feel is right. I can’t love who I want because you say it’s wrong? I’m supposed to suffer  for eternity because I won’t submit? Not only do I have to love who you say, I have to worship who, where, when and how you say? Plus, I’m supposed to live a lifetime of ignorance because you believe women shouldn’t be educated. Matter of fact, I’m supposed to shut the $<"( up because you value your words more than mine? You wanna kill me because you dislike my freedom. You wanna…

1-2-3 Slay: Natural Hair GR Photo Shoot

It was the corner of Fulton and Division in downtown Grand Rapids. I was amongst a group of twenty beautiful black sistahs, all of varying heights, sizes, shapes, complexions, hair styles and levels of swagg. We slowly strolled down the street, each with our heads high as if we balanced invisible crowns on our heads. There were bright smiles, a ton of laughter and feelings of awe as each sistah took in the beauty of the next. There was no petty snarls, side eye or unhealthy competition; just love, respect and understanding of the natural hair struggle. This created an…

Natural Hair Product Review: #hairfood

I joined Influenster a few months ago and recently took part in a #sproutvoxbox campaign in which I received a sample of products in exchange for my honest review. I love free stuff qnd I love writing so I’m excited to participate. The first product I tried was the Clairol Hair Food shampoo and conditioner because I’m a natural hair enthusiast and a hair product junkie. I don’t normally shampoo my hair (it’s been seven months) but I made an exception in this case for the sake of the review. I really reset that decision. The shampoo lathered very quick…

Natural Hair Product Review: New Styler

I tried a new styler yesterday and I must say I’m happy with the results. As I Am Curly Jelly works well. I used what I had on my stash to co-wash (Shea Moisture Professionals Cocoa Shea Co-Wash) and condition (Tresemme Botanique to rinse out, Design Essentials Natural Almond & Avocado Leave-In) my hair. I added the Curling Jelly while in the shower. I dipped my head under the water real quick then shake the excess water out. That’s funny but be careful if you dropped a lot of product in the shower. I used paper towels to absorb more…

Paradise On Earth – Natural Hair Product Review

Product Review – Paradise On Earth Organic Hair Repair Mask and 100% Organic Hair Growth Oil. I purchased these product online and am completing this review voluntarily. I wet my hair with warm water and sectioned it into three large parts. I divided each one into even smaller sections, applied the mask to every strand of hair, and then put my plastic bonnet on. I chilled for 15 minutes without heat then sat under the dryer for 15 minutes. I rinsed and then co-washed my hair. I added my favorite moisturizing lotion and then sealed it with the POE Hair…
