Transitioning from Extensions to Natural Haircare? The struggle :)

The struggle of the 6-8 week relaxer treatments for women of color is an ongoing struggle. I love my straight edges. However, I do not like the chemical burns, relaxer smell and the new growth.

Birth of A Nation

A must see film! Is there controversy? Yes! However, you must leave it all at the front door of the movie house and go watch the film. The Original Birth of a Nation was a milky propaganda version of this film. There is no comparison, between these two films. They are polar opposites. Believe Me!!!!!…

Rhianna
