HAIR LUST: Big Bold Fro

Afro

Spring is here and summer is around the corner. It's time to bust out your big fro. I'm a fan of protective styling during the cold weather months and rocking the curls and kinks during the warm weather months. Spring/Summer is a time to be carefree. Let your fro fly like this lovely lady!

GLIMPSE: Melissa speaks at the Wild & Wonderful Natural Hair Affair


I've been MIA for minute, but it was for a good reason. I've been spreading the news of Natural Hair across the nations. Well not the 'nations', but outside of Nashville. I was asked to be the keynote speaker at the Wild & Wonderful Natural Hair Affair in Charleston, West Virgina! I know, right?!? I was so excited to speak at this wonderful event. Can you believe this was the FIRST natural hair event held in the ENTIRE state of West Virginia? The message and motivation of natural hair is an important one - I was so happy to be the first speaker for this state. 

Below, I'll share some photos from the event: 

Over 200 ladies attended the event held at the University of Charleston

ROOTS & RHYTHM: Angie Stone - "Brotha"

What started out as admiration for Angie Stone's ability to carry an afro with grace and ease quickly returned to my appreciation for her work.

REGAL: Angie Stone.
When Mahogany Soul first dropped, I was impressed with "I Don't Miss You Anymore" because of her use of the sample from the O'Jay's.  She made it her own in a way that allowed me to enjoy both songs.  That doesn't happen often for me.

Hair Lust: Big hair, no cares


Big giant curly hair! If, when you first went natural, you didn't dream of hair like this, you arent normal. LOL! Just kidding, but, we can't deny this isn't an amazing photo and the model's hair isn't EVERYTHING! Is big, giant, curly hair your goal? Let me know in the comments section.

Ashiya's Hair Diary: The Final Cut

This weekend I had the final hair cut that brings my first loc journey to an end. Thirteen years, waist length locs and countless life lessons later, I decided to venture out for more.  Although I'll probably loc my hair again at some point, I am curious to see how my hair develops without manipulation.  I'm going with 4B as my hair type and I plan to give it what it responds to from there.

THE FINAL CUT: The first outing.
My first option didn't work out and I thought a barber would be much less emotional for me.  I knew I would have to cut a bit more of my hair to even it out and I really didn't want to.  I just wanted to chop my locs and let it go from there.  But there was a large area on the left side of my head that would not let my TWA be great.
