A Final Farewell →
Man. This was soooooo hard to watch. Chris Smith and Chris Kelly were truly best friends. I’m sad I couldn’t make it to Atlanta last week to pay my respects to Chris Kelly. But from what I saw on TMZ’s live stream, the service was well put together.

Let me just say, I failed to get past the first paragraph without having the best laugh of my day, and possibly the best quote I've heard all year: "Go home, spring; you're drunk." kudos

tinatooshort asked: Hi, I saw your post about the ACV rinse & I wanted to know when you applied the apple cider to your whole head did you apply your deep conditioner on right after & let it sit until you rinsed it out? I wanted to make sure the step-by-step process b/c I really don't want to mess up using this method b/c my hair has been itching severely :/
The Hair Chronicles: My First ACV Rinse
On average, I like to clarify my hair once a month. But I’ll be honest, I’d been neglecting to do that for quite some time (hangs head in shame). I’m fresh out of the Aubrey Organics green tea clarifying shampoo I normally use and didn’t feel like spending the money on another bottle, and I didn’t want to use the drugstore clarifying shampoos either because they’re too harsh. So, I’ve just been...

I remember seeing this video almost a year ago and wanted to revisit. Lately my hair has been shedding, and I think it’s because I haven’t been handling it with the necessary gentleness in recent days (not to mention frequent manipulation, which I’ve been able to reduce thanks to pineappling at night). This video (by one of my favorite vloggers Naptural85) shows a gentler way of washing your...

tashabilities: Miley Cyrus is working with Snoop Dog. And to promote her new project, she’s taking over twerking. Black women can’t have or do NOTHIN without a white woman coming to colonize it. #MCTwerkTeam is RACIST because twerking gets white women fame, but Black women get shamed.

notesonascandal: A Black boy was born to my client at 2:00am this morning. He’s beautiful and perfect & I look forward to seeing and participating in his life growing up. His mother labored for over a day, in the hospital for nearly two days in pain. His mother is a Black woman. His Grandma, his mother’s…
notesonascandal: It’s INCREDIBLY hard for me to stomach the disrespect I see from Black men to Black women when last night I saw a Black woman LITERALLY have her body cut into to deliver her Black male child and within 30 mins of that, had him suckling at her breasts. All while smiling and happy and calling him a King. I just…seriously. I can’t take it.
