My Natural Hair Update :-)

My Natural Hair Update :-)

Hey divas, I know that it has been a while since I did a natural hair update, so I decided to finally do one after so many requests (please watch in 720 HD when possible :-)…   Items discussed in this video: Vitacost Organic Apple Cider Vinegar with mother (any brand’s organic apple cider vinegar with mother will do). It is great for clarifying the scalp, conditioning your hair, restoring your hair’s natural pH, as well as a host of  other great benefits. You should definitely always have it in your pantry. Dr. Woods Shea Vision Pure Black Soap with Organic Shea Butter (this is great as a clarifying and moisturizing shampoo once a month) Raw African Shea Butter Tropic Isle Living Jamaican Black Castor oil Do you have any other recommendations for hair restoration around the edges? I’m only going to seriously consider a hair transplant around the sparse areas if nothing else works, so please feel free to share what has worked for...
Review: RPGShow Ashanti Wig :-)

Review: RPGShow Ashanti Wig :-)

Hey divas, As you all already know, I am a huge fan of lace wigs. They are an easy way to change up your look without putting a lot of tension on your hair or hair line (if you go the glue-less route). I have been reviewing RPGShow wigs for a while now, but I just had to do a blog post on this unit because it was something out of the ordinary for me and definitely a little out of my comfort zone. I am not a big experimenter when it comes to hear color because I always fear the “ratchet” look that darker skin tone ladies can get if a color is too bold. Don’t get me wrong, some darker skin-tone ladies can pull off an array of colors with class, but I think it is because they know the right shade of the right color to use to suit them; I am still in the learning phase of color experimentation lol. When I chose to review this wig, I wanted to try something different, but when I received it I was starting to rethink my decision…that is until I actually put it on and started playing with it; I really liked the deep tone red ombre against my skin-tone. I realized that I, as a chocolate diva didn’t have to be backed into the corner of 1b or the natural browns, I can actually dip my toe into the color pool and experiment a bit more. I may not be ready yet to take a full plunge into the pool, but I’m definitely ready to get...

Get Ready with Me: Museum & Early Dinner (FOTD & OOTD :-)

Hey divas, Last Wednesday I spent the day hanging with my girl Cassandra (diamondsandheels14) because she was in town for the week. We decided to meetup and hangout at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and then grabbed an early dinner. We had a great time. If you don’t know who she is, definitely go ahead and check out her channel. She is really sweet and genuine not just in her videos, but in real life as well   Now sit back, relax, and Get Ready with Me :-)… I just want to say a HUUUUGE THANK YOU to all of you that liked my video and left such great comments. I don’t know why but I was a bit nervous to post it (I always get nervous when posting a new video idea or concept), but since so many of you left such encouraging comments I will definitely be making more GRWM videos in the near future. Thank you sooo much divas for your continuous support. You really have no idea how much it means to me...
It's MYYYY Hair… Damn!!! (a lil' rant)

It's MYYYY Hair… Damn!!! (a lil' rant)

Ok, so I got a comment on a recent video that I did about a hair review. In the comment the person says, “I was just reading an article about black hair supply businesses not being able to get into the basically korean-owned market & I come on YouTube to see who? The weave queen lol Ironic! Will you ever show your real hair? Are you ashamed of the hair that grows out of your scalp? Is it the texture that bothers you? Black women need to understand the REASON why we covet this straight hair that we have to buy from other women! It’s so embarrassing.” I’m all for freedom of speech and for people speaking what they believe, but just like they have the right to say what’s on their mind, I have the right to say what’s on my mine. When I decided to grow out my natural hair, I was super excited about the knowledge that I could receive from other women in the natural hair community on YouTube. I tried to go natural several years before, but gave up on that journey when I couldn’t track down the right resources to help me. The natural hair community has been such a blessing to me, but some of these ladies can be super annoying! I think that it is commendable for anyone to get in front of a camera and share their experience(s) with the world, but in the natural hair community a few tend to try to bully others into feeling bad for the choices that they are making for themselves. I’ve read comments...
