Beach Waves: Styled by Sunnie Brook

The very good people at Head and Shoulders sent me a message asking if I was interested in getting styled by celeb hairstylist Sunnie Brook. Is that even a question? Heck yeah, I was interested. I messaged back Scotty Warp Speed to let them know just excited I was to have a phenomenal stylist lay…

Wash Day: Clean Scalp Edition

There are loads of different beliefs as far as what is best when it comes to washing curly hair these days but I can assure you that for my hair, it is necessary that I walk away from that shampoo basin with clean scalp. I use product (gels, curl creams, curl jellies and all types…

Because she was not only speaking to the masses and letting you know that Black is Beautiful but directly to Black Folk who…

Goodbye Straight. Hello Curly.

Don’t call it a comeback, curly hair has been here for years. Yup, I just did a play on words for  one of my favorite rap songs of all time. If you don’t know, now you know. I can keep going. LOL. But really, if you are looking to add some oomph and volume to…

When One Selfie Isn’t Enough.

    It seems rather obnoxious to post several pictures of my face and think that others should be interested. I know, there is nothing groundbreaking here. There is no overarching social commentary.
