I figured it was about time to add an entry to my Hair Care / Transition to Natural Hair Diary. My routine has not changed at all, lol. I’m still primarily rocking the twistout hairstyle and wigs when I don’t feel like doing that. The above picture is probably my best flat twistout to date! The curls came out so defined, shiny, and huge… (You know I love big hairstyles!). I’ve been sticking to the spray bottle of water, coconut oil, and shea butter combo to achieve the hairstyle. Coconut oil is probably my favorite hair care product right now. It helps my hair stay moisturized and provides a ridiculous amount of shine without weighing my hair down. Love it, love it, love it! And I cropped part of my face in the picture because I looked crazy and tired, lol….
Solange did the big chop a few weeks and I love the new hairstyle. She caught a lot of flack online and off about it because some incorrectly assumed she was one of the recent “shave your head” crew members… I think she looks great, but I’m also a Solange stan It’s also not the first time she went for the complete shaved hairstyle… I remember pictures of her first big chop and natural hair floating around when she was pregnant. The pictures above are from Solange and Beyonce’s recent trip to Japan… I believe they were promoting a handbag line.
Last, I’m a little confused about all the attention Terrell Owens is getting for his “headscarf” comment on his reality show. It seems that some women have started going hard at him on twitter about it. For those that don’t know… Terrell made a comment jokingly to one of his Black female assistants about her headscarf that she wears to sleep not being sexy, and how none of his women wear them to bed. It seems some Black women are taking it personal and an attack against Black women. Whatever! Last time I checked bonnets and scarves are not sexy… most men put up with them, but most would also rather you not wear one to sleep… So what’s the big deal? I’m all for Black Hair Care… obviously… but give the man a break.
