Let’s take it back to the 90’s 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.

We wish you had scratch and sniff screens. You're all being deprived of a nose and lung aromatic massage right now, as you read this. This soap is just so good, it makes you want to take a long bath.

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.
Drugstore mascaras that make your eyes pop have a new rival. This stuff goes on like Dior, separates like Urban Decay and costs as much as L’Oreal. This mascara caught us by surprise. It was a stealth beauty attack.

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
