Mixed Chicks Sulfate-Free Shampoo


I have been using Mixed Chicks deep conditioner ever since I began transitioning to natural hair in 2010 (and after my big chop, eek! I permed it back, aah). It has tons of slip and leaves my hair feeling drunk. I recently saw the brand in Target which brought joy to my eyes. Previously, I was buying it in NYC and schlepping it back in a checked bag. So glad for Target’s more diverse line…

Healthy Hair After the Perm


In 2010 I decided to transition into natural hair. I grew my hair out for almost a year, and then cut it all off. I tried various styles and embraced my natural hair for a good six weeks, and then I permed it. At first I felt guilty, but now, I’m glad that I went through that process.

Big Chop


Were you a long term or short term transitioner, and why? I transitioned for 10 months, my last perm was in August 2009. Originally, I thought I would never BC (I just wanted to keep trimming off the perm until it was all gone), but as my natural grew in more and more and I began to see and feel the texture, I got more excited to be completely natural.

Curly Curly


I went to NYC today (and took a photo with Nick Cannon, but it was for work so it wasn’t as exciting as it sounds). Anyway, once in New York, I headed straight to Ricky’s to get shampoo and conditioner. I have had a really hard time finding good products in the Stamford area, so it was top on my agenda. I headed there with some friends, and even saw Titi and Miko walking down…
