LoveLee Natural Hairstyles: Coils 3/13/17 thru 3/17/17

Yaaaaaaaaaaaassssssss hunny! My hair was on slam this week. I just loved it. None of my styles came out the way I planned but I was able to recover just fine . There’s no need to get mad or frustrated when that happens. It doesn’t help, and I just don’t have that kind of time.  The hairstyle of the week was coils. I’ve been using The Mane Choice products the last two weeks. (I’m working on my review but I haven’t had time to complete…

Product Review: Grindlife Apparel

Family Over Everything (F.O.E.) Since I’m paying homage to a black-owned business each week of the year, naturally I have to show some love to my own family. I patroned Grindlife Apparel the second week of 2017. Grindlife is a hip and contemporary clothingline that was founded by my baby cousin, K Monay, in 2012. Currently based in ATL, she started her company while still living in our hometown of Battle Creek, Michigan. She offers a sporty array of urban gear for both men and…

New Natural Hair Products For My Kinky Hair

I’ve been going through some old pictures that highlight my hairstory. It truly has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I’m so proud that I have almost mastered the necessary techniques for styling and maintaining my hair. I can tame it or unleash the beast. Regardless I’m a product junkie who is always looking for new products to try. I always have been and probably always will be  My most recent adventure has been with Camille Rose Naturals haircare products. I…

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…

KINKY HAIR CONNECTION GR: Unity Is In the Hair

There’s no denying it. Donald Trump will be the 45th president of the United States, and the country is more polarized than I’ve ever seen. There are protests taking place across the country in opposition to this upcoming presidency. I have new friends who live overseas and are asking how could we let this happen. Foreign diplomats are speaking about our nation in an very apprehensive manner. Everyone is asking one plaguing question: “How can we unite under this man’s leadership?” The spirit of this…

Natural Hair: Celebrating Us Is A Must

Yesterday I went to a natural hair meetup. I love living in Grand Rapids because there’s some kind of natural event going on almost every weekend. Circumstances prevented me from attending one in the last few months so it felt good to get out. I try to stay positive, especially publicly, but I have a high amount of stress in my life. I spend a lot of time around people who don’t look like me. They always honor me with love, respect and trust; however,…

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…
