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

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.
