Teachable Moment About Natural Hair according to Melissa Harris-Perry

I stumbled upon Melissa Harris-Perry’s show this morning for the first time.  It felt a little like destiny, because she covered the topic of HAIR!  Today’s episode also discussed issues of racial profiling, and minimum wage as well. 

The video below is a great resource on Black Women’s Hair 101.  Anyone that is confused, I feel this video is a great synopsis.

After the explanation, Melissa Harris-Perry had a panel with familiar faces such as Nikki Walton (curlynikki.com) and Nicole Ari Parker (saveyourdo.com).

Selah Natural 13 Years and Counting

The decision to go natural was one decided long before it actually happened. As a kid, every six weeks I endured the painful ritual of relaxing my short brittle hair; all the perm in the world could not tame my mane. As soon as the slightest bit of new growth emerged from my scalp, my smooth wrap would turn into a fly away half-fro. I always preferred the cornrows my godmother seemed to sew into my hair. They too were painful but the result was always gorgeous. Sometimes long, sometimes a unique pattern; my extensions and cornrows defined me.

I am watching you like a ‘Fro Hawk

The past few weeks I’ve been obsessed with the ‘fro hawk.  Every time I check out our Links Directory, I am graced with the ‘fro hawk with the twist outs.  I meet Ms. Evonne at the India Arie concert and she was rockin’ a cute long ‘fro hawk.  Then Ms. Sarenzo Beads showed me her invention for the ‘fro hawk on youtube.  If you search the ‘fro hawk in youtube you get over 200 videos.That was it, I took a few days off of work, so it was a great opportunity for me to do something different.
