Washing, Wrapping, Styling And No Oil

Wow. So much time has gone by. Where is everyone? I guess YouTube took over. I use to live on this site. A lot of the posts are over 10 years old. Anyways, I tie my hair up and then use a bonnet and also, no oil.

I am so excited to share and connect with everyone!

Product Junkies Unite!

I agree about the Hello Hydration. My hair loves this stuff. I have tried soooo many products over the years. But I finally realize I need to just stick with what works and stop trying so many things.

Random Nappy Thoughts Summer 2019

Today I started taking a collagen supplement supposed to help with hair and nails! If I see a difference I will let you know - my temple area was a victim of thyroid medication overdose.

Hi there

Hi! My name is Whitney. Technically I have always been natural but I was taught to keep my hair in braids, wigs, weaves, pressed. Honestly I don’t even know what my hair truly looks like because I will take it out of one form of braids, wash, blow dry and it will be braided again the following day.
I don’t have patience when it comes to hair and makeup so I figured if I need to take this much care of a wig that will eventually get thrown away I may as well take care of my own hair which will last until I decide to cut it. Saturday the wig is coming off and the hair is coming out.

Really excited, really scared.
Any advice is welcome.

Go Back to Where You Came From

I would venture to say that 99.9% of us have at some stage been told to GO BACK to Africa. And I'd also venture to say you remember when it happened.

I was in elementary school - about 7 or 8. A classmate bully named Gregory Streeter said it to me. I didn't understand what he meant at first, but then he went into this insult-laden commentary about how my skin was dirty because it was brown and started laughing at me. That's when I started to cry.

But I also remembered my other classmates, especially my friends Liz and Jennifer (whom I am still friends with to this day) coming to my rescue and him getting punished by my teacher and having to apologize to me.

Over the years, it has been shouted across the street at me and my friends, it's happened in clubs. 'Go back to [wherever].'

The fact that repulsiveness is coming out of the mouth of this president* doesn't shock or even surprise me. In fact, the only surprise is that it has taken this long for him to say it out loud. He is a racist. He has always been a racist. He was a racist when he was sued by the State of NY for housing discrimination against people of color. He was a racist when he demanded the execution of 5 innocent Black boys. He was a racist when he and his family of cretins stated birtherism. He was a racist when he spoke of a Muslim ban. He has shown us who he is and continues to show us who he is.

What I'm waiting to see is what kind of country the USA is, because his support among the republicans is soaring after these comments against the black and brown Congresswomen.

Are we heading for another civil war against white nationalists? Sure looks like it to me.

Menopause and Weight Gain

If you haven't seen this information about hormones and fat - and you are struggling with losing weight in your 40s and beyond, you need to watch this video by Lynee Urban. As someone who has always been skinny up until perimenopause came in, this information has been invaluable to me.

https://www.facebook.com/lynee.urban...3745920975998/

You can't eat how you used to, because the changes in your hormones are interfering with your fat burning processes. So it's time to learn about how to make some changes.

She has given permission for me to share this video and tell you about the information for her upcoming seminar that will cover this topic and more. You can register online and attend over the internet if you can't appear in person. Definitely worthwhile if you are having trouble with weight at this time of your life.

DNA Kits

My sister had her DNA done through one of those kits you can order online. Surprising results! ... has anyone on here had one done? What was your experience?

I don't like the idea of sending my DNA off to whoever, but maybe I'm just paranoid.

Natural hair timing

Hi all.
I was planning on starting my natural journey this weekend but we got hit was a severe thunderstorm warning and the humidity has spiked to about 45% in the past 12 hours. Would it be a better idea to wait until the weather calms down or is now as good a time as any to start?
I would appreciate any input.

Thank you!

Wearing natural hair is not a fad. It is not a fashion trend. It's the natural hair you were born with. So why can't you wear it?
