Celebrity Curls – Aoki and Ming Lee Simmons

I was watching the “Queen of Fabulousity” (is that even a real word? You know you have hype when you can just create words at random!) Kimora Lee Simmons and I noticed that her two darling little girls have some well maintained curly heads.  Continue reading

Celebrity Curls

Now that I’m a natural, I find myself paying a lot more attention to people’s hair in everyday life and in the media.  I find myself noticing more curls and kinks and as a result I’m adding a new category to the blog to capture my observations – Celebrity Curls.  Enjoy!

Revelations and Routines

Okay,

My next post was originally going to be about nutrition and fitness but I’ve had a few hair epiphanies that I just have to share.  Inspired by Curly Niki’s post about how black folk did their hair back in the day, I asked my mom about her hair (which I haven’t seen in decades due to her wigs but I vow that before I die I will know the truth).  Continue reading

First Step of the Journey

Hello Out There………

Is anybody here?  I think I’m chatting with myself but whatever!! This is my first post of my first blog.  I’ve been watching so many great videos on Youtube and  reading so many wonderful posts on Blogger that I’ve decided to share my experiences.

My main motivation for starting this blog is to discuss my experiences “going natural”.  I decided to stop chemically straightening my naturally nappy hair a few months ago.  I was motivated by my desire to stop putting dangerous chemicals in my body in order to improve my health/prevent disease.  I began a primarily organic/chemical free lifestyle this summer (this will be the topic of a future post) and I’ve seen tremendous benefits.  Then I realized, I’m spending all this money on fresh, preservative and hormone free food and yet I’m still putting this toxic chemical on my scalp every four weeks!!
