Why is African American Hair Kinky, Coily, Curly?

This question may seem like an answer to that many would know, but that is far from the truth. Honestly, I never even pondered the question until I came across a Google search while I was looking for African American hair styles, this question was at the bottom of the page. Of course my interest was intrigued and I clicked on the question for furniture investigate.

Well the answer was simple,  and it actually made since. People from the eastern part of the world create natural oils on their scalp just as we all do, but because the sun is hotter in those regions, (hence the more melanin in our skin to protect us from the sun), the same goes for our hair. African hair kinks, coils, and curls up to protect our scalps from burning while we are out hunting, growing food, and taking care of our land.

The same for other eastern countries. People look as a part of their environment, or which once was our environment.

"Can't we all just get along? " Can we?

As I watch the news and yet again another black person had fallen to the hands of the police, Alton Stirling, Philando Castile,  Sandra Bland,  Travon Martin,  and many more who did not make the National news. And then as the days go by,  Slain police officers,  some in which helped people in the black community,  gunned down. Why?  Rodney King said it best.  "Can't we all just get along?" A man who was beaten right at the forefront of it all. A man who experienced the hurt and pain of being demoralized and humiliated in front of millions of people.  A man who survived and kept his poise as he went through the court system,  only to not get justice,  and still call for peace. See,  the truth is,  we are all one race,  but because of the melanin in your skin,  many white Americans do not see,  or simply ignore what goes on in the Black community.   Mainly because they don't experience it themselves. But if I was to leave you with one thing, it is to keep your eyes stayed on God,  protect yourselves by being covered with the blood of Jesus. NOTHING is new under the sun. GOD'S people have been persecuted for centuries. GOD, not the government, nor the police is our protector.

Ecclesiastes 1:9 NKJV

9 That which has been is what will be,
That which is done is
What will be done
And there is nothing
New under the sun.


A call for #peace

Rope twist, American Horror Story Style!


I have to say,  every since I saw Angela Bassett wear these babies on American Horror Story Coven, I was sold!

I said yeassss, werk hunty. And then my rope twist were created. I  love the rope twist because they are very easy to do over when my hair grows out in the front. I just Un twist the hair, comb and moisturize my hair, then retwist the hair. Then wala, just like new!  

Did you ever get rope twist as a protective style?  If so did you like them?

Watch Me Do My Hair: Glue Down Lace Closure on Quick Weave





So I didn't like my leave out, so I decided to glue down a lace closure. The glue that I used was BMB Super Lace Glue for Lace wigs. I didn't follow the directions so it didn't work as good as it could. Then I also used 30 Second glue.  After it was all said and done, I was pleased with the results.  Check it out!
