By now I know you have heard or seen the ridiculous ad SheaMoisture shared. And if you haven’t keep reading. The ad seems all good and dandy unless you truly are familiar with the natural hair community and what SheaMoisture was built on. SheaMoisture was the staple product for natural hair and I mean CURLY hair people. When you heard SheaMoisture you thought of the pioneering, off the ethnic section first product. But the ad discussed hair hate and how “EVERYBODY” needs to love their hair and not ONE black woman, ethnic woman, 3b 3c 4c hair was shown. So
5 Times SheaMoisture Got It Wrong
The commercial is stating “HAIR HATE” where and when do people discriminate on white people straight hair???????
The entire brand was built and designed by African descent and was supported by African Americans but not 1 African was shown in this new “direction”
“Everybody Gets Love” #BissshWhere they had 4 out of 5 people were Caucasian. So Where is everybody????
SheaMoisture Apology was as pathetic as the video.
They said they would take it down, and yet its still there.
Just wanted to quickly recognize another giant step for natural hair. Recently, the infamous female comedian Monique, posted a picture of her natural hair. She is asking a beautiful fro of perfection and comments about how she is a new person and bold in a different way. How about a round of applause for naturals
I received a notification via FaceBook that today is Hair Appreciation Day!!!! So I gladly want to show off my amazing mane. I want to encourage you ladies to love yourselves and let your hair show! HAPPY HAIR APPRECIATION DAY
Bantu knots are definitely a well known design in the natural hair community to acheive cute effortless curls. However recently the media has been continuously showing them in their infancy state. Who do you think wore their bantu knots best Dej Loaf or Blac Chyna ?
Recently on a FB group, I noticed a ton of women interchanging the two words: Natural and Curly. I asked a very broad and general question. What is the difference in the two words in their opinion.
Some women glady exclaimed that there wasn’t any difference in the two. I had a few even say that you can manipulate straight hair into curly patterns and natural is how your hair is grown in.
Then a very select few were even offended at the thought of someone distinguishing a difference. Saying that people believe hair in the category of 4 are sometimes not viewed as being curly any longer but kinky.
So I truly want to distinguish the two.
Curly Hair – It can be one of two things. The first is if you’re naturally grown hair from your roots grows in a wave, spiral, or zigzag. The second can be if you have manipulated your hair to resemble one of those three patterns. You can change it with Curl Wands, Hair Rollers and etc.
This may seem irrelevant for some however it can cause quite a bit of confusion if you are just starting and go online in search of answers and type in curly hair products when you truly mean natural hair products. Enjoy more Post!

If you haven’t heard LaPorsha Renae has made it to the top 2! This is definitely a celebratory moment for the natural hair community. She has proudly displayed her natural hair in front of millions. Something all naturally curly or natural women can take a note from, boldness. Let’s talk the basics of her hair and a few things she may / may not have said openly.
I wanted to completely redo this post. When I reread my last one I realize my editing was confusing. Sorry about that, here we go.
Being a natural is a brave and beautiful step. Deciding to live and love your natural is a gigantic leap. I have met so many powerful women who are in love with their curls which makes them love themselves entirely. It has shown me how loving yourself unconditionally allows you to love others unconditionally.
Watching unique love makes me realize that a naturalista beauty isn’t skin deep but runs deep into their roots. My friend Sanetra is by far the most beautiful person I have ever met. She is a true example of a God-fearing woman. Her husband is as unique and amazing as she is. I absolutely love their love.
I am so glad to write this post. More and more are we seeing natural styles appear in the media and I’m loving it. If you know me personally, then you know I am not the TV person. So if it’s not Hulu or Netflix then it better be on Youtube because I am not going to see it. However the internet has been buzzing quite a bit about a natural curly hair icon winning a place in the top 10 American Idol finalist, La’Porsha Renae. Continue reading “Congrats La’Porsha Renae Natural Hair on American Idol”
Black history is celebrated a million ways throughout the month of February. So I intentionally wait till the end of the month to examine how the hair is celebrated amongst the african american culture.
