There are few Instagram accounts that can make us spend Pinterest type time wandering down into the depths of images that go way back. We’re talking way, way back. Weeks and weeks and more back.

And her creative selfies. And her clothes. And these bad ass sandals. Once you’re not distracted by her textile allure, return to her #AlienEdit series. Look at them and be inspired because, life.

Yes, Valentine’s Day has come and gone but love is still in the air. I have to admit that Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite times of the year. Love is such a power thing when expressed in the right way. Love can be shown and exemplified in such creative ways and that’s what makes it so amazing. When you love what you do, or you love everything about life it will show in more ways the one. READ MORE

Dealing with thinning hair can be frustrating and challenging. We genuinely understand how overwhelming this can be especially if you’ve been trying things to no avail. In many cases, you can slow down thinning or even completely stop and reverse hair loss with the right approach. Hair loss is much more complicated than a one-size-fits-all approach. It takes knowing exactly what type of hair loss you’re dealing with and then creating a targeted approach to stopping it. To get you started on your personal path to ending your hair fall, we’ve compiled a comprehensive guide of the different types of hair loss and their available treatments– behind and over the counter.

Let’s take it back to the 90s when we were feeling ourselves (and for some of us) just beginning to delve deeper into melding with our Blackness or Afrocentric-ness thanks to the musical vibes and lyrical call to education from beautiful ones like Erykah Badu and Angie Stone. Let’s take it back even further to the times when we stood tall in all of our knee-deep-in-the-middle-of-puberty glory, studying our faces and watching ourselves through the steamy condensation of the bathroom mirror while a fluffy white towel graced our heads and we celebrated about how beautiful we were and how royal we looked with our towel crowns.

Aspirin is a form of salicylic acid; the same ingredient in acne fighting face and body products. So in case you’re wondering why there is aspirin in this mask, there is your answer. Salicylic acid is useful in fighting dandruff and acne because it has been proven to unclog pores of dead skin, exfoliate and soften thick scaly skin (which is great for dandruff), and soothe painful acne. When paired with activated charcoal which is like a super absorbing, crazy magnet-type sponge that soaks up toxins and removes dry patches, you’ve got yourself a pretty amazing at-home face mask and scalp treatment.

Rogaine has outlived the crass jokes about middle aged men trying to eradicate their comb-overs and is now wooing women, quite successfully might we add, with their new once-a-day foam treatments for hair loss.
So, the expert advice on wearing your bras is no more than twice without washing it, but its seems we’re just not listening…or caring? We’re out here in these streets marinating in lace and satin for seven days or more.

Q/ [I’ve] decided to start transitioning and to stick it out. I was wondering how safe you thought it would be to just keep my hair braided (cornrows) and just wear long-term wigs. My thought was that I could still take care of my own hair since I could just take the wig off, but that I wouldn’t have to style my hair every day because I had a wig. I have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to my hair. I’ve just learned how to make sure I get all the shampoo out of my hair when I wash it. I can’t do ponytails, I don’t have time to straighten it in the morning, and I work out four times a week, so I’m feeling a little helpless. Also, with the state that it’s in at the moment (thick and matted roots, straight everywhere else), I’m not sure what else to do.” – Courtney READ MORE
