Prod. Review

So, most women love diamonds, and jewels and any  OR all accessories right?
Well, via FB, I met a natural curlfriend named Sheeba Chastang. She sells jewlery, and unique accessories. The twist to her company, Urban Vibe, Inc. is that she crochets everything by hand. I love her pieces. I even won a few items in a giveaway a month ago! I was so happy!

Yes, that's right. This young, Black sistah with a entrepreneur, business savvy mind is doing things and making waves online. She has an etsy shop, a website, Fb fan page, blog and her pieces are FAN-TAB-ULOUS!
 I added a pic of me wearing 2 of her pieces:1) a yellow, crocheted headband, 2) crocheted circle earrings. I want you to show our fellow natural curlfriend some love. Oh, and spread the word.Enjoy!

Urban Vibe, Inc.

Note: My hair has been up for almost two weeks  this week and is holding up well, I think. Got 2 compliments on my headband today! Yay.

So, I posed this question on FB earlier in the week via my FB fan page.

Think about your natural hair. What did you find was a challenge in the beginning? And what do you find is a challenge now?
A:When I think of my hair in its natural state circa 6 years ago, my answer would have been learning to manage it. Applying this question to my life NOW, I would say detangling. I have not always known how to properly detangle my hair. My shrinkage is major, and I would basically rush through the detangling method and start a style. This was bad causing many split ends, breakage and damage to my hair shaft.
        But I have recently learned a new detangling method, and I love it! Will share soon!!!!

We would love for you to chime in on our discussion topic. What are your thoughts? Let a sistah know below..................Thanks!

Hey All! Here is my hair for today. It's all twisted up. First, I detangled my hair with my finger to remove any and all shed hair. Then I used my comb, and my paddle brush to detangle FULLY. Next, I applied my Shea butter. Sealed my ends with castor oil. I am on a protective style challenge til March 19th. Let's see if I last.LOL

Defining a natural

{nat·u·ral adj \ˈna-chə-rəl, ˈnach-rəl\ Definition of NATURAL} I am embarking on my 1 year Bloggerversary in a few months, and I do not EVER remember posting about the Definition of a natural and what it means. I figured, I would address this subject in this post. This posting tonight comes with the hope that it may help someone, who may be intrigued by naturals, and natural hair! So, Merriam-Webster has about 15 definitons for the word Natural. I looked each one over and the ONLY one I felt truly stood out and could apply without question to what a Natural is....was Definition # 4.
4 : having an essential relation with someone or something : following from the nature of the one in question
I love this quote because it fits like a glove. Yes, natural hair is a relation to something(that thing being kinky hair) and someone(being my Natural bros and sistahs). Clean, precise and straight to the point. Naturals love to wear their hair in the state which it grows out of their head. Naturals embrace the hair God gave them, and they manage it without any manipulation. The manipulation I mean comes to play when you use chemical relaxers, and or straighteners, heat sources, and anything found outside of nature. We then too,intend to use organic, all natural, safe products to maintain and help manage our kinky , curly, coily tresses. ------------------------------------- As always....What does being natural mean to you? Are you considered natural if you use things found outside of nature like heat, chemicals? Let a sistah know below......................

Discussion #3

So, I was in my Natural Hair group on, and I see a post from Miss Lady Key's Fan Page....The Question was so intriguing I just had to bring it to my blog readers. LOL.
Do you feel natural hair is a fad OR are women just naturally progressing toward self love?
I guess what I mean is, are women flocking to natural because they like hopping on any fashion trends that are launched or they naturally beginning to love self and their hair? ------------------------------- What are your thoughts? Let a sistah know below........................
