Review: First Look – Jolis Hair Extensions
I received hair from Jolis Hair for review, so first step is the unboxing and first look! Why the first look? Because when purchasing weave from a new vendor you want to be sure that the hair is bug free (yeah girl), smells good + clean, with prompt shipping. Don’t worry ladies, I will review how […]
Coconut Oil Alternatives for Eczema Relief
In continuing with this series on eczema relief, it only makes sense to discuss other forms of moisture through the use of essential hair oils. As mentioned in my last post, a great moisturizer is everything, and for many people who suffer from eczema (and for many curlies with porous hair), coconut oil is a […]

Evolution of Wash Day & A Giveaway
I love change … evolution, the growth or development from what was once considered the norm. It is truly a freeing and also gratifying experience, especially when it happens under your nose with little-in-stature-individuals entrusted to your care for a time, e.g. walking unassisted, feeding themselves, tying their own shoes, dressing themselves, reading and writing, formulating […]
Let’s Talk Hair Shedding
How much hair should one shed? What is normal shedding? How to tell if you have a shedding problem? What causes excessive shedding? What’s the difference between shedding and breakage? The questions around shedding never end and as one who has done a good bit of research on the topic, it seems as though the […]
