My New Go-To Transitioning Hair Style: The Braid + Curl

For those of you who have been reading my blog for some time now, you know my go-to style since I’ve been transitioning is a flexi rod set.

My Natural Hair Update: 6.5 Months Post-Relaxer

Natural AND Relaxed, Not Versus

I absolutely love being a black woman. I love my dark brown skin complexion, my somewhat “difficult” to pronounce name, my big lips, Jamaican roots…and my super thick relaxed hair. That’s right, I do not have natural hair. I definitely consider myself to be a pretty “woke” individual and am constantly discussing race relations, race in America and social issues that we face as black women with my friends. I am proud and feel that right now is such an…
