Being Natural in the (White) Workplace

No, you can’t touch my hair. Being Natural is hard enough. With the copious amounts of products in the market and the struggle to perfect a twist out, bantu knot and perm rod set like your favorite YouTuber, life is not easy for naturals! The task of maintaining the white standard of professionalism doesn’t make being natural any easier. Perhaps it’s time for others to learn to accept our hair.

Does Your Protective Style Truly Protect

This year has been the year of “protective styling” for me. I was persistent to protect my hair from manipulation, heat damage, retain length and most importantly protect these ends.

I have very thick hair and I used to hate washing my hair because it would be all over the place, tangled and let’s just say a hot mess! So, I remember when I started transitioning I would complain to a great friend of my…

Natural Hair High Puff Tutorial with Locs

When in doubt, many of us put our natural hair in a high puff. Normally I get my hair re-twisted once a month but lately I have been walking around looking like Medusa! My new work schedule makes it hard for me to stick to that solid routine and since I want fresh hair for NYE, I have to resort to one of my “in the meantime” hairstyles. Since I have loose curls from an old style I used with pipe cleaners, I decided to put my hair in a…
