Relaxed Hair & Growth

Relaxed Hair & Growth
Growing up having a relaxer there were times I never touched my hair in between maintenance. I would let it go until it became stiff and oily until my next hair appointment. When I did try to do my hair, it didn't always go well and the growth of my hair soon became stagnant. Luckily, with much patience and consistency and learning what my hair needed, I finally achieved my goal of reaching armpit length with relaxed hair. It was a small goal, but a goal nonetheless. Now I have my own regimen for not just long but also healthy relaxed hair (no really...it's possible). While everyone's hair is different, there are some key factors that help relaxed hair grow.

Hair discrimination whether in the workplace, at your local college campus, or just out and about in your community is nothing new. Aside from dreads, many black women have vented on social media about employers saying they can’t wear their hair in its naturally curly state or how one girl stated what an employer said, “We don’t accept that” when she went on a job interview. This becomes an even bigger issue when black women are told not to wear their hair curly or in protective styles like braids and dreads.

Makeup is supposed to be fun and experimental! Take some of my favorites that we offer: LipBar's Boy Trouble Liquid Matte , Vixen Lip Gloss and Evil Twin Lipstick from Gold Label Cosmetics.

The Importance of a Well Placed Hair Oil

The Importance of a Well Placed Hair Oil
Essential oils are only used to lubricate and moisturize your scalp or to seal in moisture that you already worked through your hair. Fun fact! Our scalp already has natural glands that produces an oil called Sebum. Sebum lubricates the hair shaft and the strands of hair that comes out of our scalp, this is why it’s important to use good moisturizing conditioners and deep conditioners after you wash your hair.

Beauty in All Black Hair!

Beauty in All Black Hair!
The natural hair movement became a liberating time for most black women. More women were loving on themselves, not giving into society standards on what “good hair” is or even just realizing how to better take care of their hair and having a healthier crown. It seemed like an exclusive club that you just had to either cut your hair or grow it out to get in! This change was amazing to see, but there is a flip side to this movement that I don't believe gets enough attention: the judgement.
