    For anyone who's interested, I stumbled across this Sister's blog about a week ago, and I've really enjoyed reading it...current, relevant and humourous in places :)

    Dear Curious Onlookers, Semi-natural, Full Blown Natural and even the Permed:

    About Me

    I am a newly turned naturalista. I was born and bred in the Caribbean- born in Grenada but spent the majority of my life in Barbados- and I currently studying as an undergraduate at Coppin State University, Baltimore, Maryland. With any luck I will be graduating in 2012.

    About the Blog

    This blog really is just dedicated to all those natural maned girls out there. This is a blog intended to celebrate the Naturalista’s out there and to embrace the trials and errors we encounter on this adventure. I want to share with you what I have learned along the way- tips and tricks, the do’s and don’ts, the must haves and the should not haves- I want to educate you while I learn.

    It's nice to see different hair styles...I typically wear my hair out natural, but sometimes I flat iron it and so forth! I'll check out her blogs..thanks for the post!

    ...I didn't realise that Natural Hair blogging had become such a phenomenon! The haircare tips I've discovered on some of these blogs are absolutely amazing...can't wait to try some...great photos and styling tips too :)

    "...I do not believe my hair needs to be tamed. It is not unruly or difficult to manage. It was not meant to be straight and I am going to stop trying to make it do things it’s not suppose to. In its natural state, where I leave it is where it stays, even standing up. That’s well behaved hair – so what’s unruly about that?"

    "WELCOME TO SO NAPPY! This is a new and fun blog dedicated to black women who are living (or want to live) a healthy natural lifestyle from their hair follicles to their toe cuticles. I created this blog for women to have support as they transform (and struggle a little as I have) with growth and ultimate care of newly natural tresses. I hope to be able also comment on how to live a fruitful, healthful, natural lifestyle including diet, product use, exercise, and stable cognition."

    "I am a firm believer that as black women we should be skeptical of products made by people who do not know a thing about our hair. We live in a new era; there is a resurgence of black female entrepreneurs who like Madame C. J. Walker are creating hair care products for us. However, these women are raising the bar and creating hair care products for our natural hair using natural ingredients. It can't get better than that."

    I'd just like to announce...


    That I watched the instructional video on braiding at this site, and decided to attempt to do my own (let alone anyone else's) for the very first time... :eek: I've always paid other people to do it for me over the past 18 months. So, after a combined time of 24 HOURS' labour (spread over 3 days), and the help of a 3-way mirror, I now have a beautiful head of braids that I just LOVE!! Other people haven't been able to do my hair just the way I like it...but now I know I can do it myself :D


    If I can do it, You can too!! :toast:


    Hotep :)
