Hair: Length Check and Bantu Knots

Note: My hair type is 4a-z, nappy, kinky, coily, cottony, soft, fine, moderately thick, and very very delicate. Time to check the hair length again! It grows so slow now-a-days. I’m still trying to figure out where that growth spurt a couple of years ago was due to. I had to cut off 1/2 an […]

Hair Again: Rough and Dry Ends

Please note: I dislike tagging my personal pictures, but I’ve discovered they are being used. I was never asked about it. I never gave permission. These are my hair ends. I’ve flat ironed a few times. I blow dry my hair nearly all the time, and I am pleased to see the teeny-tiny-itty-bitty curls come […]

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 […]

Garnier Fructis

Dry Hair Everyone has different hair requirements. I am a 4a-z with hair that is fine, medium density, kinky, coily, textured, cottony, or nappy. It is rarely hard and never coarse. 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 Confession: Nappy Head Check vs Relaxed

I do not believe that black women who do not relax / perm their hair are more politically or socially aware, or even nicer / friendlier than those who do. Nope. People are complex, complicated beings. A hair style doesn’t tell me anything about them. I think a number of people do make interesting assumptions. […]
