Hair: travel style, observations, and conditioner concoction

Returning to Normalcy (Yawn) and Travel Observations In September, I was away for nearly three (3) weeks, and honestly, it was a downer to return. I never used to feel that way. I used to be so happy to be back in America it wasn’t funny. This was the first time I realized I could […]

Rapunzalima, Rapunzalima Let Down Your Weave

Went out to a mall a few miles away with my Mother. It’s always a challenge when I go out to eat. At this particular chain (TGI Fridays), they provide no information on their website as to how many calories their food has. It was the only eatery I could find on my GPS, otherwise […]

Hair A Few More: Leave-In Conditioners

Hair Length Goal I did not have a particular hair length goal before. I simply wanted to know how to treat my hair well, and to be satisfied with the results. I’ve worn my hair natural (without relaxers, perms, or any other kind of toxic chemicals) most of my life. My styling and treatment of […]

Turn I Loose: Afro, Locs, and other Styles

Note: This is just my opinion, people are free to wear their hair as they please, of course. All personal choices are valid. I rarely wear my hair loose. Is that a sign of shame? I was wondering if I hide my hair based on subconscious dislike of it. I wore it straight (flat ironed) […]

Did I mention how fragile and delicate my hair is? I envy people who can comb, flat iron, and blow dry nearly every day. […]

Hair Matters: Don’t Do it Again

Trying Something New I went against my own credo to leave my hair alone and stop experimenting. Out of curiosity – because I’m always curious – I decided to try something new: leave conditioner in my hair. Now, I’m asking myself: Why did I do that? I did it, because I wanted to see if […]

Hair Day

And the purpose of these photos are?It was a bright, lovely day, I was shopping (one of my pastimes), and I decided to take some shots of my hair. My Mom said my hair looked “shiny”. I certainly had enough olive oil in it to cook a meal… Due to the sunlight and the camera, […]

The blunt truth of a picture

For a number of months (9+), I focused on getting my hair past a certain length. It grows fast, but every winter I’d lose over 3-5 inches. Recently, I thought I was shoulder length until I did a stretch test: pulling a two-strand twist and seeing how far it would go. To some people, getting […]
