A Lil Bit o’ Color.
If you’ve been looking around the natural haired community lately, you’ve probably been seeing a lot of C O L O R. There is a new trend of using creamy eye shadow to “dye” your hair without the harsh effects of ..well…actually dyeing your hair. I tried it last night in my knot twists and I really like it! I ‘d definitely do it again. I used Maybelline Color Tattoo’s Loose Powder in potent purple, but I definitely recommend the creamy eyeshadow.I am glad I tried the loose powder first, because I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it. Because it is loose, it doesn’t last at all. The creamy eyeshadow definitely will give you the longer wear you want. It washes right out, so you don’t have to worry about any residual color or damage. Check out Simply Bianca’s video or watch Luv Mika put color into her lovely 4C twistout. I love the end results!

Cream of coconut, avocado, yogurt, honey, oilve oil, argan oil, carrot oil, almond oil. Smells so good!

Cafuné.

My little nephew is 6 months now. He likes to wrap my curls in his little fists, pull my hair so my head is touching his and then wrap his feet in my mane. He loves it when i cover his eyes with my hair, too. It got me thinking about natural -hair and “touching.” I am one of those naturals that doesn’t mind having people touch my hair. That doesn’t mean I let any ol’ person or stranger just run up in my hair. Like anything else on your body or having to do with your personal space, it just depends on whose hands are actually wanting to caress my tresses and why. It’s a very intimate gesture. My natural-haired women friends tend to touch my curls more than my non natural-haired friends. I feel completely comfortable letting them hold a handful of my curls. There is a shared intimacy there, a mutual adoration and appreciation that they understand because they went through the journey, too. Because they are my friends, I know the gesture is out of love. I’ve been fortunate enough not to have any negative experiences with people touching my hair when I haven’t wanted them too, friends or otherwise. However, I will get down with that bob-and-weave if I ever catch unwanted fingers heading for my fro.

Don’t you dare
Shrink yourself
For someone else’s comfort -
Do not become small
For people who refuse to grow.
