I love the size of my afro.
My hair loves Aloe Vera gel.
Detangling is easier.
None for this month.
I'm 6" in most parts and 4.5-5" in the tighter areas (like my crown and a little bit below).
I used this product for my first ever twistout. While the smell is very yummy, the residue left behind wasn't. Using too much of this stuff will leave a greasy, white-ish residue on your hair. No worries though, a little water can take it out. My twistout came out very beautifully despite that and my hair was soft. Not soft like when I used Miss Jessie's, but soft enough. If you want to try this product, I would suggest only using it for braidouts and twistouts. Has anybody tried it? Share your experiences!
Okay, I've been wanting to try Miss Jessie's for a long time, but was always turned off by the price. I decided to give it a shot and I'm very pleased! After co-washing earlier today, I applied the Curly Buttercreme to my hair and brushed it through. After my hair dried, the softness remained. I love the way my hair feels. Although I'm not too happy about the peppermint smell (it's VERY strong), there's always the Baby Buttercreme which has a softer scent. Whenever I decide to use it for two-strand twists, I'll post pictures! Has anybody tried it? Share your experiences!
I did it once when I was 16 and again when I was 18,” she said backstage at BCBG. “I just need to kind of start over and liberate myself and feel empowered. I feel like so many women put so much of their power in their hair, and I was succumbing to that — like, spending so much time and money and energy on my hair.”
Talk about a throwback! This is me & my natural hair at just six years old; right before I got my first relaxer. How old were you when you got your first relaxer?
NEWARK, N.J. — A man from the West African nation Togo has admitted his role in the smuggling of dozens of girls and women who were forced to work at hair braiding salons in New Jersey.
Lassissi Afolabi pleaded guilty Wednesday in federal court to conspiring with his ex-wife and others to commit forced labor and related crimes in Newark and East Orange, where he lived.
Afolabi has been held without bail since his arrest in September 2007. He could face up to life in prison when he's sentenced Dec. 8.
Prosecutors say between October 2002 and September 2007 at least 20 girls and women were taken from Togo using fraudulent visas. The girls were forced to work six or seven days a week and to turn over all of their earnings to the defendants. (Source)
