Even though I didn’t make it to Essence Music Festival this year (insert sad face), I admired from a far like many of you.
All the bells and whistles for pulled out for the 20th anniversary of our culture’s biggest music festival. Janelle Monae was one of the artists that I stalked from HEAD TO TOE. But it was her flawless makeup that had me begging Sam Fine for the deets.
“What are your summer beauty tips for black women?” That’s a question that I get all the time. My answer? Consult your makeup BFF. Mine is celebrity makeup artist, Sam Fine. He’s currently responsible for making Queen Latifah (aka Dana as he calls her) look her absolutely best for her daytime show.
So I called Sam Fine one late Wednesday evening (no really it was 12am) and we chatted about what every brown girl should be doing this summer to not only look wildly gorgeous but how to officially get the summer sun-kissed glow we all dream of.
When I first decided to transition to natural hair, a friend referred me to YouTube for hair care tips. It was one of the best things I could’ve done because I was totally lost. That was six years ago. Go on YouTube now and you’ll be swept away in the sea of natural hair videos, that will have you more confused about what to do with your hair than you thought possible. Not everyone who gets behind the camera to share has the slightest clue about what they are talking about.
As a natural hair blogger, I make a point to really research and discuss content with professional hair stylists before I post it on my channel. The goal is to provide some reliable content for the women who come to the Tube for assistance. Otherwise, you could be stuck in a real struggle with your hair listening to some foolishness that a blogger said on YouTube, and I want no parts of that. So if you’re in that place in your hair journey were you are looking for some reliable information to save your hair, here are the top 10 natural hair videos that are a great place to start to keep those tresses in tact. Just click on the video title to watch!
Everyone should know by now that’s I’ve had grey hair most of my life! I’ve written about it a few times (if you are new to my blog welcome and please read this)!
But I realized that I never really share how I specifically maintain my greys. I mean, grey hair care should be a main topic right #shrugs! Anyone who has grey knows that them buggers are pesky, have loads of personality and often they don’t listen.
I get a lot of emails proclaiming that my hair is fabulous (thanks) and how I keep them shiny and silver.
