Things To Consider Before Going Natural

Black America Web

The transition from relaxed to natural hair has become increasingly popular. What is now referred to as the “natural hair movement,” has more Black women wanting to ditch the chemicals for their own curls.

I’m an advocate for going natural and being natural, but a few things should be taken into consideration before making the decision to become a naturalista!

You must embrace your hair. I’ve heard stories of women taking the leap to go natural and then hating it because of the way their hair looked. When it comes down to it, it’s not for everyone. But to truly be about this natural hair life you have to accept your hair, its texture, and everything that comes with it. It’s something different, but you have to fully embrace and love it.

You need patience…a lot of it. If you think you’re about to go natural today, and…

High Fashion & Natural Hair

I love fashion and always have, over the years I have notice that many of the high fashion models and models in commercials have natural hair and I love it!! Do not get me wrong there is still a major discrepancy in the amount of Black women in the fashion industry. Not to mention in the media we are not always shed in the best of light smh. But on the positive side of things I feel encouraged when I  see women of color strutting their stuff on the catwalk, on the cover of high fashion magazines, and in beauty commercials Embracing Their Crown so one day the rest of the world will do the same 🙂

Below are a few beautiful models that inspire me and have made their mark on the fashion industry as well as in the natural hair community.

So I just received my bottle of hairfinity in the mail today! I have been wanting to try the product for a while now after seeing all the amazing results online and to see if it would do the same for my hair. I really like the tips in this video about what to do and expect while taking hairfinity by @ms_black

1.) Best to take hairfinity while hair is in a protective style for best results
– I will be getting box braids tomorrow

2.) Best to take 1 pill a day instead of the recommended 2 pills a day to combat break outs

3.) Best to take it with a hefty meal and wash it down with a hot cup of tea

I will do an update post with before and after pictures once I finish my first bottle and will try to do a product review video as well. Looking forward to the results I will keep you posted 🙂

Protective Styling!!….”The Bun”

Image

This is the time of year when I make an effort to wear more protective styles to give my hair a break for a while. Last week was very busy for me…..I really did not have time to do my hair like I usually do! So I wore my hair in a high bun for like 6 days straight lol! It was very convenient and low maintenance; the bun also helped to protect my ends.
My hair was already stretched from the week before so that made styling quick and easy just the way I like it lol!!
-I oiled my scalp
-Moisturized my ends
-Gelled it up
-Used bobby pins to tuck away the ends
At night I took the bun down to prevent strain on my edges and just repeated those steps again in the a.m.

The bun is definitely my go to protective style when I need something quick, easy, and cute. It is also great for naturals that are currently transitioning!! If you have other low maintenance protective styles I would love to know 🙂

EYC Music Wednesday!! Majesty Rose

I have not watched American Idol since the season with Fantasia and Jhud! Mostly because television started to be saturated with karaoke styled music shows with less and less talent…But tonight I was flicking through the channels and saw this talented natural haired beauty and instantly became a fan. She is very unique in her musicality and style, you can tell from her demeanor she is confident in her skin and is Embracing Her Crown. That is exactly why I want to feature her on EYC Music Wednesday….Not to mention she is a Carolina Girl LOL!

A few FYI’s about Majesty Rose: She was born Majesty Rochelle York in Goldsboro NC  on February 29, 1992. She plays 3 instruments the violin, cello, and guitar, before American Idol she was a preschool teacher. She is currently a Top 9 finalist on America Idol. Support this natural haired songbird….I cant remember if anyone has every won one of these show with natural hair 🙂

Below is a video of one of her performances!!
