Greeings! I hope this post finds you well! A while back someone on a hair forum created a thread entitled, "If This Hair Journey Were a School." She wrote: What kind of degree would you have? 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 . . .
In my previous post, I discussed how I prepped for my semi-annual salon visit, and I mentioned that I would share the name of the new-to-me salon that I would be visiting.

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
To yield my best wash and go results, I typically shingle my dense, fine, 4a, natural hair at the sink. I recently, however, decided to try a wash and go in the shower.
