Heeeyyyyy everyone! Long time, no see! I’m back! Did y’all miss me? Lol

 

So I posted a question to my personal Facebook page about a week ago asking “What struggles do you (the people) have with their hair?”

 

Lets just say, we got some hair issues that need to be addressed! ASAP!

 

A lot of people stated that they had issues with dryness, retaining length, breakage/shedding and styling. I was surprised and amused at how many guys commented about losing their hair lines!! I’ll do my best to help the fellas, too!

 

I’m going to break up different topics in future blogs but today I want to focus on the most common issue…DRYNESS!

 

Now, I wrote a post about understanding dry hair in a previous post but now I’m going [....]

Hi my loves!

 

We’ve made it to the end of the year! I cannot believe the year has flown by this fast. My birthday is also coming up so that’s always a plus!

I’ve been reflecting over the year and how this year has been for me and it’s truly been a blessing. I have learned and grown so much and I have gained a new level of appreciation for the trials and triumphs I’ve experienced this year alone.

I’m extremely appreciative of everyone who has told me they learned something from my specials focusing on African American history. I want to end the year in the same pattern and focus on two figures in our history that I’m appreciative of.

Jupiter Hammon and Phillis Wheatley are two of the very first African American [....]

Nothing is more annoying than an itchy scalp! You relieve one itch and then here comes another! Its seems as though it’s contagious! We search high and low for the magical product and the ingredients are right under our nose.

As a stylist, the number one thing I hear from my clients, family, friends and others who are in need of hair advice is that….

 

Help me! My hair is dry!!

 

I would be rich if I got a dollar every time I heard that statement (well, I may be able to pay a few bills but you get the picture lol)

 

No one, I mean NO ONE, wants to have dry hair. It lacks shine and luster, it makes it difficult to create and maintain a style and it can ultimately lead to some serious breakage. Believe me ladies (and gents) I also share some of the same sentiments.
