Curly Hair Questions

Curly Hair Questions

Neutrals

Our hair does amazing things & there are so many textures, colors and types! “Black hair” encompasses a VERY broad spectrum so people, expand your mind beyond that teeny tiny box that says it’s either weave or it’s nappy.

I get that people don’t know but some things people ask are just ridiculous!! Here are some of the Curly Hair Questions I get almost daily:

Is that a wig?

Lol! No. & no you can’t touch it.


Can you do my hair like that?!

No, I’m not a hair stylist. But you can watch how I did it on YouTube.


How does your hair do that?

 

I went to bed with my hair twisted, plaited, knotted, rolled or contorted some kind of way & more than likely it was not cute. lol! Believe Beyonce if you want, I did not wake up like this!


Natural hair is expensive! How do you keep up with all this?

It’s actually about the same. The difference is you thought having natural hair was just going to be easy when in fact, it’s still maintenance & you’re still spending money


Who colors your hair?
Jesus. No, I’m serious. It really grows this way



So you must be mixed

Yeah, with Black & African American

Well then you have to be Albino!

😑 No, no I don’t & no I’m not. No offense to Albinos but just because someone has light skin with light it doesn’t automatically make them an Albino

What He Really Deserves

What He Really Deserves

Plums

Saw this on IG & figured I’d share my thoughts

Aside from the typos I think the post is valid. I agree with being your partner’s source of solace not stress. I sing every lyric of Destiny’s Child’s “Cater To You”. I’m the girl that knows she’s gonna spoil her husband & he is gonna thank sweet baby Jesus everyday & night to have found a catch like me!

However, there’s always that sneaking thought that what you do is will never be good enough:

Yeah… lol! I’m not to the extreme mindset of @Only1_Ms_Stylisk but sometimes, yeah! You can believe you’re in this great relationship & things are picture perfect but in reality he’s out here slanging his wang to every Jill, Dawn & Nancy on the street!

So how do you determine if your man is good enough that deserves to be treated like a king?

The answer is simple: he will show you!

Of course that’s easier said than done. When you first get in a relationship people show you what they want you to see, so he’s gonna be prince charming -and you’ll put on your best act as well. You haven’t seen the real him so why would you spoil him with your best sex (or any sex for that matter), breakfast in bed, massages, home cooked meals, etc? Not saying you can’t do any of that for him but damn, you don’t hafta put all your cards on the table so soon! And I know it’s hard, especially when he’s showing you everything you’ve been wanting! Trust me I’ve been there, I’ve been that girl! I was all about playing wifey thinking if I show him what I all I can be for him upfront he’s gonna want to hold on to me even more! Nah! Majority of the time they just enjoyed the cow & the milk that they got for free & moved on to the next girl. Smh.

There are benefits to that though. As time went on those same guys ended up wanting that ol thing back but by then I had come to my senses and moved on! You snooze you lose! I’ve since learned  that while having an ex come crawling back feels pretty nice, not wasting my time on f**k boys in the first place would have saved me so much head & heart aches. I didn’t let those relationships ruin me as a “good woman”, I’ve been screwed over plenty of times (& put up with the bs that eventually got me screwed over) but I’m not gonna take that out on the next man.

So how do you determine what he deserves? Let him earn that spot in your life! Every person in any type of relationship you have will show you what position they deserve in your life. Pay attention to that & react accordingly.

Natural-Versary and Aunt Jackie’s CC Review

Natural-Versary and Aunt Jackie’s CC Review

Neutrals

This month marked 5yrs of me being on my natural hair journey!! 🙌


Lawd know this has not been has not been an easy one but definitely worth it!

I wanted to do a tutorial for you guys using Aunt Jackie’s Curls and Coils Flaxseed Recipes Collection… but I haven’t quite mastered how to record washing my hair in the shower. But I took pics throughout the process!

Here are the products that I used. Aunt Jackie’s Curls and Coils Flaxseed Collection is their newest line of products and are enriched with Flaxseed, Coconut, Apple Cider Vinegar, Mango Butter, Avocado, Shea Butter and more!

I started off with the Purify Me Moisturizing Co-Wash Cleanser to cleanse and condition my hair. I wore my last protective style for over 2 weeks so it needed the extra moisture. I like that this co-wash is not just conditioner, it also lathers and leaves my hair feeling clean but not stripped

  I followed with the Fix My Hair Intensive Repair Conditioning Masque, coating my strands from root to ends and detangling in sections. I let it sit for 5 minutes and my curls were popping honi!

Next with my hair soaking wet I made about 8 sections, applied the Seal It Up Hydrating Sealing Butter, finger detangled once more and two-strand twisted my hair -adding a little more product on the ends.

Before bed I pinned each twist criss-crossed them across my head to stretch them as they dried. The next morning I took them down and got these soft, yummy smelling coils!

I wanted more of a fro so that night I slept with my hair in a pineapple and in the morning I sprayed my hair with the Half & Half Hydrating Silkening Hair Milk, fluffed the coils and got this look

I continued to fluff, pic and moisturize my tresses with Half & Half Hydrating Silkening Hair Milk almost every morning along with a little water from my spray bottle and every other day adding some Seal It Up Hydrating Sealing Butter.

I finally achieved the stretched, fluffy fro I wanted! -I refused to post this until I did! lol! I’ve been getting compliments all day on how my hair looks and feels so soft and smells so good!

I recommend Aunt Jackie’s to all my naturalistas and curly girls out there! Especially the ones who have yet to find products that work for you and they smell AMAZING! For the guys with natural hair I highly suggest trying the Flaxseed Recipes Collection, it works well and the scent isn’t a tropical fruit bowl (which I LOVE), but instead it’s a pleasant neutral scent.

You guys tell me what you think about these styles, Aunt Jackie’s products and which styles I should try next! Leave a comment below, share this article and if you try Aunt Jackie’s Curls & Coils tag me in your pics @BlondiesLipstk!

Single During Cuffing Season?

Pinks

Go ahead and call me basic, but Fall has got to be one of my favorite seasons of the year.

I can’t be the only one who loves when the leaves start changing color and the sweet scent of Pumpkin Spice Latte’s begins to waft out of every Starbucks within walking distance, can I?

Aside from my personal favorites, there are many other aspects of Fall that make it an exciting time of year for everyone. There’s the start of baseball season, football season and even cuffing season.

If you don’t know what cuffing season is, Urban Dictionary defines it as the time of year when, as the weather starts getting colder, “new relationships start and old relationships turn into engagements.”

To put it simply it’s the time of year when everywhere you turn, everyone is hooking up – except you.

Being single during cuffing season can be hard, but it doesn’t have to be. There are a number of benefits to being single that most people don’t notice because they’re too obsessed with the perceived notion of how great being in a relationship is when in reality….

Relationships are expensive.

When you’re dating another human being, it’s expected that you’ll dedicate at least a small amount of your time to enjoying their company.

While that’s nice and everything, think about how much money you could save on food, movie tickets, concert tickets and more if you were only buying for one.

It’s really a no brainer, when you’re single the only person you have to worry about treating is your self and wouldn’t you rather it be that way?

Relationships are restrictive.

Relationships are all about compromise, but there are times in your life when you may want to do whatever the hell YOU want to do.

When you’re single, you can do what you want, go where you want and even flirt with whomever you want.

Use this cuffing season to really find out who you are. When you’re not constantly trying to live up to the expectations of who someone else wants you to be, you are free to be yourself.

Relationships are fattening.

Let me clue you in on something, relationships make you fat. I say that because it seems like our dating lives are completely centered around food and no matter how hard we try, we can’t stop eating.

Whether you’re going to dinner, breakfast, brunch or lunch, when you’re in a relationship you somehow end up spending a large amount of time sitting across from each other at restaurants and a larger amount of time trying to fit back into your pre- relationship clothing, post breakup.

Okay I’ll admit it, sometimes being single sucks, but if you try to look on the bright side it doesn’t have to be all bad.

Are you booed up this cuffing season? Comment below!

Are you looking for Mr or Miss Right?

Are you looking for Mr or Miss Right?

Pinks

Are you still looking for the one? Bored of being single and are ready to mingle???

Love

It’s claimed nowadays that women tend to focus more on their career then settling down and having a family. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with being driven and motivated by your job but people are forgetting about what matters the most… family! If you’re in a job you love and you’re successful, fair game to you but I think you still need to think about your personal life and not just your job.

I claim myself to be one of the lucky ones to have found my Mr Right a few years ago but I do have a few single friends that are desperately trying to find their Mr or Miss Right.

I’m not writing this to poke at any strong, career minded women; I have the upmost respect for them… I just want everyone to take a deep breath and really think about what makes you happy. As I always say, life is far too short so you must do whatever makes you smile and share the wonderful moments with another. Go out and party, mingle with crowds you would never dream of doing… who knows… you might find yours prefect partner there!

I’ll Be There for You, Cause You’re There for Me Too!

I’ll Be There for You, Cause You’re There for Me Too!

Pinks

Yes, you guessed it… the title is from the Friends theme song. Today’s theme is friends but not the programme but before I talk about friends, can you believe it’s been over 10 years since the programme ended?!

Friends

They say you can’t choose your family but you can choose your friends!

I don’t have a huge amount of close friends but the ones I do have, are so special to me. Every one of them has their own uniqueness and I wouldn’t swap them for the World!

We can go partying, shopping or just chilling and relaxing but I know they will be happy and comfortable.

You really do know who your friends when it comes down to it. I keep in touch with old school friends but we’ve all moved on and are different people now. I guess this happens a lot in life but some people do stay best of friends with their old school friends and that’s great but I’ve found that sometimes work and life gets in the way or people move away. Nevertheless, try to keep in touch!

Life is too short not to have fun so wherever you are in the World, make sure you choose great friends and enjoy all the good times!
