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 names of these lipstick colors alone demonstrate how we are taking control of our beauty and expression and injecting a bit more fun and edge into what used to be a one note approach to makeup.
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.
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.
While different women around me were trading in their “creamy crack” for the big chop, I was setting up my next relaxer appointment. Just like the women around me going natural, so were the hair gurus I followed on social media. It seemed like every time I looked up, someone I followed specifically for relaxed hair care were either growing out their hair or chopping it off! Luckily, others noticed noticed a gap and began to start their own channels and pages.
