I’m So Damn Sick of You Today.

Few things make you feel crappier about your hair than a trip.   ‘specially a long-term trip.   ‘specially a long-term trip where you can’t hog the mirror and there is no counter space in front of the mirror for your hoards of bobby pins and your collections of pomades, essential oils, and other hair […]

The Illusion of Different

Safe Braid/Twists Takedown

Safe Braid/Twists Takedown

Braid takedown is pain in the butt.   Yeah I said it.   But even worse than braid takedown is haphazard braid takedown, resulting in hair that’s in worse shape that it was when you put it up. I have literately shed tears over huge balls of lost hair observed after a rushed takedown/detangle. The […]
