How to Perm Your Eyelashes?!

Have anyone heard of perming your eyelashes?  Well I guess it's one of the fads going on now.  I guess if it has been around for years, the secret is finally out.  First of all I want to address that I am sure there is a wrong and right way of doing this.  Although the idea all together seems pretty obsurd, many woman world wide are doing it.  There is a video of a lady perming her lashes with regular hair relaxer!  Yes the relaxer we get from the beauty supply store with lye in it and she shows the product and explains that it has lye in it in the video.  First of all ladies, your eyelashes falling out is the least of your worries.  I would be concerning myself with BLINDNESS!  She makes it look so simple and safe.  This is just stupid!  See for yourself.

Oprah's August 2013 Cover Photo

The other day while standing in the check out line at the grocery store, scanning the magazine rack as I always do I stumbled upon Oprah's O.  I was mesmerized almost hypnotized by her hair.  For those that dont know me I am a hair fanatic so to see this, to me was a treasure.  Unsure if it is all hers or not, but knowing Oprah really has a lot of hair one can only imagine all of it being hers.  Her overall appearance is beautiful.  Oprah you go girl!

Coarse Edges

Have you ever wondered why your edges won't lay down?  Or why your gray hair is so coarse?  Are you or were you an avid braid wearer?  Or did you always yank out gray hair on sight?  Well there is your problem.  On Dr. Oz, He explained how the growth of more gray hair is the least of your problems when yanking out grays.  Besides that's a myth, gray hair DOES NOT multiply cause you pull them out.  What it DOES cause is damage to the follicle and the appearance of coarse wild looking hair.  So take heed ladies next time those braids are tight on your edges and pulling them out.  If your hair does grow back it won't be that baby fine hair you use to have.  It will be coarse and untamed depending on your texture, you may even grow berries lol.

My Girls Hair is an Out of Control Mess

As I have mentioned in the past that my two little girls are mixed, British, Japanese, Native American, and Black to be exact. My girls hair is an out of control mess. Their hair grows super fast and it is super long. Sometimes I will go a couple of days without combing it, and every time it is a big mistake. Its gets matted up and it takes forever to comb out. It doesn't appear that way though, it just looks as though they have beachy wavy curly hair. I believe their hair to be 2b,c and 2c 3a texture. Their hair is beautiful  but  very high maintenance especially cause it's long. What I go through with their hair makes me think about the white women with biracial kids with really kinky hair. I truly feel for them, because they have no clue as to  what to do with it or how to take care of it. In my case my girls hair is truly mixed. They have curly,straight and wavy textures, so you can only imagine the trouble it gives me. But I discovered what worked and stuck with that. I understand and believe it letting your child be free without barrettes and tight ponytails. My girls lose barretts left and right so I stopped buying them.  It's sad to see a beautiful child walking around with dry, chewed up, broken off hair because to me represents ignorance. I only say that because with the wealth of information on the internet, free at that. There shouldn't really be any excuses. So ladies please if you have mixed baby have a look at these moisturizing tips for your babies.

  • A Good moisture is essential, for example I like to use suave natural in the green bottle, shea and almond.  Although its a conditioner it's feels great when left in the hair. (wet the hair first)
  • A good sealer such as castor oil, olive oil.  I like to use coconut oil but it's not good as a sealer.  It penetrates the shaft and give nutrients through out the hair.  Which makes it a great conditioner.  
Those simple steps are pretty much all it takes.  But experiment with different oils here is a list of oils to try: essential hair oil.

Celebrities With Some Bad Weaves

Today I so happened to come across some photos that were quite disturbing because it made me realize that know matter how much money you have you really can't cover up the ugliness that lies just beneath the lie ha.

Like when I am looking at celebrities I expect, even though they are normal people like us.  I expect them to be flawless because after all, they are "special".  Let them tell it.  Any ole ways.....What kind money does a celebrity pay for jobs like these?
