Would you be an A student, B student . . . Would you be a teacher or a student?… Continue reading [Fun] If This Hair Journey Were a School, Would You Be a Student? Teacher? Other? And . . .

[Social] Meetup Event, Soccer Game, Nail Salon Visit, and Tonight’s Line Dancing Meetup

Greetings! Here's an update regarding my shift away from digital social media to in-person, face-to-face social interaction.

Before Tomorrow’s Rare Salon Visit: Wash Day to Prep for My Semi-Annual Flat Iron and Trim

I only visit the hair salon once or twice a year, when it's time to get my natural hair trimmed. I've had pretty bad experiences with stylists who claim to know how to handle natural hair only to rip through my hair instead of gently detangling it. Or with stylists who are very limited in… Continue reading Before Tomorrow’s Rare Salon Visit: Wash Day to Prep for My Semi-Annual Flat Iron and Trim

Last Sunday! (Gratitude, Sermon Notes, and LifeHack Bible Antifragility Excerpt)

Today I'm posting about last Sunday -- about spirit and the Word and worship. About joy and gratitude. That's a bit of a change: So far the majority of my blog posts have been about hair. One of the reasons? Besides the obvious reason that my hair demands almost daily attention, it's because I'm loving… Continue reading Last Sunday!

Toxicity in Black Women’s Hair Products, BSS Hair Event, and Latest Hair Product Purchases

In order to be a support, I try to always purchase my hair products from black-owned beauty supply stores or directly from the product owner/creator. Today I found myself in a non-black-owned beauty supply store. This is because yesterday Google showed me a Twitter post (or was it a Facebook or Instagram post?) announcing that… Continue reading Toxicity in Black Women’s Hair Products, BSS Hair Event, and Latest Hair Product Purchases
