Natural Hairstyle | Perfect Perm Rod Set How-To

Deciding what hairstyle to enter my 26th year with wasn’t as daunting of a task as you would expect… I only had 2 in mind: Beautiful tousled curls achieved on a blowout using flexi rods or tighter-coiled curly fro with perm rods. I opted for the style that was most comforting at night. Deciding what products to use required some research. My last few attempts at a gorgeous perm rod set were marred by humidity and lack of ability to...

Natural Hairstyle | Twisted Fauxhawk Updo

Safe protective styling has always been a bit of a struggle for me due to lack of inspiration and a fear of boredom. It took me a two-hour search on instagram to find a hairstyle I hadn’t done before that I could really make my own.. What I mean by safe protective styling is a style that lasts a while but doesn’t endanger my edges, isn’t too tight on my scalp, and won’t cause any unnecessary breakage. As naturals, we tend...

My Trip to the African American Museum

My grandmother was a great storyteller when I was a child. I remember vividly the colorful stories she would tell me about the past. The hairstyles, the clothes, the drama. I remember her story about a Native American relative who would sit indian-style on the porch. I remember the stories of how my grandfather was a big jokester when he was in high school and how he used to play on a baseball team. I can clearly see my grandmother’s high...

Craft Cocktail #8 | Hennessy Berry Punch

I’m the type of girl who loves a good cognac on the rocks, no mixer. Just the smell and taste of some E&J, Remy Martin, or Hennessy is enough to satisfy my liquid desires. However, summer in New Orleans is brutal, and I often crave fruity, yet refreshing drinks that will serve its original purpose and cool me down as well. Most of these dual-purpose drinks don’t include cognac, but if they do, the taste isn’t one to desire. So, I decided...
