Hair Is the Truth When It Comes To Mental Health Treatment and the Black Community

Black people are one of the least likely groups of Americans to get professional mental health services but remain some of the most resilient people in the world. I’ve been trying to figure out how it happens my entire life. Generations of oppression, racism, poverty and community violence should have wiped our community out centuries ago. Yet here we are alive and well in 2018, just to realize that the hate and injustice toward our community is still as strong as ever. The stereotypes of…

We Show Love Around Hair: Grand Rapids Area Natural Hair Meet-Ups & Related Events

Hair in GR, we show made love for our curlfriends. A few Sundays ago, I had the pleasure of having brunch with an incredible group of ladies. It was a brunch held by the Women of Color Creatives (WOC Creatives). It was hosted by aestheticism and make-up artist, Janiece Hughuley, the owner Studio 824 Beauty Lounge. We weren’t meeting about a hair-related issue but I could help but to crush on everybody’s hair. I love when Sistah Queens get together to encourage one another and…

Third Day Braidout on 3C Natural Hair

​My hair is still loving these Camille Rose Naturals haircare products. It’s been my main moisturizer and styler for the last two weeks. I shared my thoughts and routine in my last post. Check it out if you have time. I had a braidout that gave me new life. I pineappled it Monday night and slept with my bonnet. I only put #jbco on it yesterday. Nothing today. As you can see, the tresses are still separated but they’re thicker and fluffier. There’s a little frizz starting…

Natural Hair Product Review: true by made beautiful

My stash was running low and I waited all of last week to get some new products. I wanted to try an entire line but I couldn’t decide which one. I wanted something I hadn’t tried before, maybe something that worked well for some of my Curl Friends on Instagram or in Facebook groups. I went to two Targets, a Walmart, a Meijer and two Sally Beauty Supply store before I finally set my eyes on “true by made beautiful”. I liked the label. The sea…

Natural Hair Lovers: Don’t Buy the Lye; Live the T.R.U.T.H.

HOW TO STAY NATURAL WHEN TIMES GET HARD I keep saying the natural life ain’t for everybody. After the  2016 Olympics, I’m starting to think the black hair life ain’t for everybody. The permed life ain’t for everybody either. I can’t believe how Gabby Douglas and Simone Biles were dogged out because their permed tresses didn’t meet black twitter’s approval. Gabby was disrespected to the point of tears, provoking her mother to respond publicly. She has been traumatized by this experience and I can relate…
