Straightening Systems for Black Hair

One of the newest phenomenons for Black hair, most often targeted for naturals, are the so-called “straightening systems” which are almost always keratin-based.  Keratin is a protein and when hydrolyzed (fragmented) easily deposits itself on to the hair shaft in the regions of porosity and damage.  Hydrolyzed keratin proteins are small enough to go beyond the cuticle… [Continue Reading]

10 Cheap Trendy Online Fashion Boutiques - Longing 4 Length

As an avid Wendy Williams fan, I decided to borrow one of her favorite phrases "cheap and cheerful" to describe the type of fashion stores that I patronize when I'm looking for clothing that is super trendy or youthful, and that I know I will not necessarily get a lot of wear.  Yes, I will scavage the sale racks at Nordstrom for a good Tracy Reese dress (one of my favorite designers) but for things like crop tops, platform sneakers, or graphic … [Read more...]

Wash Day | Lazy, Curly & Cute!

My hair is currently 28 weeks (7 months) post relaxer and … [Read more...]
