Natural Hair & Children - Positivity!

We are always hearing about how the media, friends and colleagues change the way we see ourselves and determine our beauty standard whether it is around our natural curly, kinky hair or dark skin. Self-esteem building begins at an early age. If a parent instills in their child a solid foundation of self-worth through love and guidance from an early age, about all parts of themselves, then neither the media nor friends or colleagues will be able to destroy it.

Kinky Twist Extension No Braid Method

I have never liked the look of braids at the base of kinky twist extensions. In fact that is one of the reasons why I have not had kinky twist extensions put in - to me it just looks wrong. I have tried several alternative methods of putting Marley twists in and this is the only method that did not result in the extensions either falling out or getting tangled or knotted at the base.

    Short. Sharp. Chic.

    Chronicle of the Short Natural

    My hair became badly damaged due to the effects of a general anesthetic during surgery on July 4th to repair my badly broken arm.  It started slowly, about 3 weeks after the surgery.   I had been following my No-Comb method and started noticing a lot of shedding whenever I detangled. At first I thought this shedding was due to me not combing my hair as often because of my broken arm which caused the shed hair to build up. But as the days turned into weeks, I noticed my hair getting shorter and shorter.
