“[What] Naturals Say”…Is This You Ladies?

When I saw this, I literally fell out of my seat crying…This video describes my life.  Great job SistaTV!

Now you guys already know how I feel about the language in the video’s title


but this was TOO funny not to share.

New Year’s Resolutions for 2012!

I know I’m a few days late with the video… but here are my New Year’s Resolutions for 2012!

If you have any resolutions for 2012, post them in the comments section below!

Shirley B. Eniang does VV Brown…

As I was browsing through the past videos of one my favorite YouTube blogger’s Shirley B. Eniang, I came across a lovely hair tutorial she did which was very VV Brown-esque.  I may try a natural hair version of this on a braid-out or twist-out…and definitely will be doing this look when I finally decide to straighten my hair!

VV Brown not only has a great voice…but an amazing sense of style as well!

Poof! Adios! Vamos! Be Gone! You Open Your Eyes and All Hair Products Are GONE.

Since starting this natural hair journey, I have become somewhat of a PJ (or “product junkie” as we naturals like to call it).  It seems everywhere I go, I look at hair products.  If I’m in Macy’s, I’ll check out Carol’s Daughter.  At Sally’s, I’ll glance at the latest Aphogee products.  And the list goes on… So as I drove back from a successful hair shopping night at Target, I began to think, “What would the world do if hair products suddenly disappeared?!”  And when I say disappear, I mean POOF, ADIOS, GONE.  No more Shea Moisture.  No more Kinky Curly.  No more Jane Carter.  (And yes, I had to do it)…No more Eco Styler.  Scary, huh?  Now I don’t know about the rest of you but life as I know it would forever be changed.

Thankfully, the world is not coming to an end, meaning all of you product junkies still have plenty of time to fill your cabinets with all the gels, pomades, creams, and mists to fill your heart’s desire.  And for me?  If suddenly a hair product apocalypse did descend upon us, I’m running straight to the nearest shea butter tree.  Who’s following me?

Nomadic Thought of the Day:

Life is simple. Hair care can be simple as well.  Put down the 15+ products and find out what works best on your hair.  After figuring out your “staple” hair products, stick with them.  Easy is as easy does.


Allow me to re-introduce myself…

My name is Raven…I am a 20-sumthin’ college student who has a love for God, life, food, music, hair, and the list goes on.  As an avid blog reader (or should I say stalker?), I thought it was only right for me to start a blog on the topics close to my heart.  Hopefully, I will be able to encourage the burdened, enlighten the seeking, and educate the masses…
