    Hi Gorgeous

    I am sooooo pleased to come across your site. Unfortunately, (or luckily) I hardly ever wear make up but I do dabble, so its nice to see what Black women are buying and trying.

    What bought me to you site was the grey hair. Yep, I had a beautiful black afro and now voila it is grey, grey, grey and I hate it. Please don’t tell me to love it cos I can’t. It is, for me the one thing that makes me feel OLD.

    Anyway I am living with it, mind you its not the only thing that’s gone grey!!!! I do really like your site and am wondering if you have any hints or tips for me living in Australia, New South Wales, Sydney to be precise.

    The country isn’t quite geared up for Black women say like USA or the UK where I am from originally but there are many African stores and women making a good living from hairdressing.

    So if you are ever over there are some places that I would highly recommend here in Sydney and in Perth. There’s heaps more for me to discover and I’ll let you know along the way.

    Love reading your site and I am busily catching up on your past blogs.

    Take good care,

    Sonia

    I stumbled upon this blog seeking some answers about primer and color correction. I knew I hit the mothership as soon as I saw the quality of the post. I have to run out the door after spending some time on here- just know you’ve been added to my feedly and I can’t wait to both read and spread the good news. This is how I get when I score a great find. J’adore.

    Hi Ty,
    Wow so great to meet someone like me! I started greying when I was 18 and by the age of 35 was completely grey. I heard all the re marks also, your to young to be grey, someone even argued with me saying that I dyed my hair, which to me was really dumb. I am now a proud 54 and always will embrace and love my natural never dyed grey sisterlocks. So glad I found you site(Essence magazine)
