Pretty.Period.

Pretty.Period.on Facebook is all about profiling Black women who are pretty -- period. Not because they are pretty to be Black. But because they ARE pretty. I saw this picture and GOT MY LIFE!!

How old should a child be before they get hair extensions?

Something about this is disturbing on so many levels to me. At what age should a child be allowed to add hair that is not their own to their head?

This child looks 2 or 3, so the question is why? Why make her feel, at such a young age, that her natural hair is not enough? That she needs something extra? I get if it was a cute playful color. But why it gotta be blonde, tho?

Would you get an armpit weave?

Listen. I generally support womens' ights to do what they want do with their bodies. Even if I would not do it or do not agree. You like it, I love it, your body. But armpit weaves and bedazzling and such is where I draw the line.

Wait. You ain't know? I did not get the memo, but apparently armpit hair extensions are a thing. Yes, a thing. And bedazzling them, apparently, is a thing, too.

Now snatching armpit hair is not my idea of fun. And why would anyone want to look like My Lil' Pony in their armpits is beyond me.

This is just too much. Last week, I heard about this trend of women NOT shaving their arms. And folks were all up in their feelings about it.
Now here y'all come looking like Rainbow Bright under the arms and you want me to agree to this mess? No ma'am and no sirs.

Detroit curls, what!

Oh, Detroit! How my curls have missed thee!

What up, doe! Here in Detroit for about a week visiting relatives. And I must say my damn self that my curls are poppin'. No more hot ass ATL -- at least for a week, anyway, LOL. The curl struggle in the ATL is real.





My curls love the cooler weather and lower humidity in Michigan (no more fried hair from the hot ATL sun).

My curls forgot that it liked Detroit's cool, mild summers. It's been nearly three years since I've been here. Beyond the heat damage (I'm still too traumatized to blog about it, but it took me 20 years as a natural to get heat damage from a stylist over the winter), my curls are getting some 313 love and are hanging pretty chill right about now.

The 5 hair questions every Black woman wants to ask Rachel Dolezal

So damn that Rachel Dolezal pulled a Blackface, flipped the script from Ruthanne to Rachel and hoodwinked us all. The petty in me is all up in her head -- what kinda curls this heffa got? All I wanna know, is that Bob Marley Crochet Hair? A La Jay wig?

Do I spot 3C with a mix of 4A curls? WHAT? Chile, because every time I see her hair, her curls are poppin! LOL! On fleek as the kiddies would say. I'm squeenching my eyes real hard at the pics, too. Do I see a  mix of 3C, 4A curls, what???

After all, you appropriated the hell out of MY culture. The least you could do is let me peep your hair game proper after your wanna be Black blues. Now as much as we could sit back and play Iyanla with this chick (she who reverse passes and wanna play Black leaves me with plenty of fodder), this post ain't that.

Here are five hair questions about Rachel I really wanna know:
