Are you afraid to get your hair done?

This is becoming a heated debate on hair boards across the net! The truth is, why are women becoming afraid of getting their hair done by a stylist?

Well, to be honest, about 90% of us have had at least ONE bad experience with a stylist in our life so far. However, does this mean we ban getting our hair done professionally FOR LIFE??? I think not....I mean, they are human and can make honest mistakes. The bulk of this STYLIST vs. CLIENT drama is due to half facts and half stepping clients that aren't taking responsibility for their hair when they sit in the seat.

Yes, I know I can surely be debated on that and truth is although cosmetologists are the professionals, each person interprets what they have learned differently thus producing different results. It is up to us, the consumers, to make sure we are thoroughly satisfied with the services we are receiving. Sitting like a mad duck will not help you in the long run.

I am currently putting together a detailed list on some tips to find and keep a great stylist along with how to be less passive-aggressive while in a salon. I've been working feverishly on this so I hope I get a great response! Thanks to all those that comment and to the new followers!

Stay Browne, Stay Lovely!

Twins with 2 Daddys?

Now, I understand being proud of your kids but sexing two different men in 1-2 day span, unprotected, on top of the fact you're married...why would you call the media to admit your trifling?

I know some may not agree with me but...SMH...I'm done..LOL

Do looks affect subscribing to someone's videos/blog?

I've started thinking about why I follow so many blogs or subscribe to youtuber's since I've accumulated wayyyyyy too many subscriptions, some of them outdated since the original posters don't bother to inform you that they are taking a break!!! (Shamefully, I'm guilty of delayed breaks also, SMH)

Point of this post is, does a person's looks make you subscribe or follow their journey?

I've noticed a lot of threads on different boards about people to follow/subscribe to, however, one of the most noticeable compliments to the person is that they are either (1) pretty, gorgeous, cute (2)hair is beautiful, long, natural, etc...(3) etc.....

I'm just interested to see what people have to say. I know some blogs that offer valuable information but then there are some that have me ?????

So what makes you follow or subscribe to someone's youtube or personal blogs?

Product Review: Nasabb's Black Soap

From Nasabb's:

Traditional Black Soap is brownish-black in color. It is soft with an organic shape. It has a delicate texture & a natural earthy smell. It is not oily or scented. Black Soap or African Black Soap also known as Anago Soap or Alata soap, originates from West Africa. It has been used for centuries in Ghana. This African Black Soap is not the mass produced African Black Soap in boxes all over the market. This simple beautiful soap contains plantain skins, palm kernel oil, palm oil, cocoa pod, coconut oil & natural sodium.

My Review:

I love this stuff!!! I have used "black soap" in the past and hated it. I figured out that this is probably because it was not the real black soap. It was definitely black (had my whole sink looking a mess, LOL) and highly fragranced. It couldn't have been real. Only thing was, at the time I didn't know how to determine what was real and it's been about 3 years when I brought it. I've learned to research!!!

Now, Nasabb's Black Soap is so moisturizing. I have incorporated it into my facial care regimen and replaced my Queen Helene Oatmeal Honey Scrub. I'm having some skin problems so I've started using Tretinoin Cream to help clear up some blemishes. It's been drying my skin out terribly and causing a lot of peeling. However, I must say...since using this black soap, my peeling has disappeared! I couldn't believe it! I'll list my facial regimen below and if anyone out there is suffering from acne/blemishes or hyperpigmentation...let me know and I've got some great tips out there!

You can purchase a 5 oz. bar of Nasabb's Black Soap here. (It's only $5 plus $3 shipping and handling!!! That's a great deal if you want to try it out!!)I suggest that you order before summer or high heat weather so that your product will not be melted by the time it gets to you. Nasabb's has a shipping policy regarding hot weather also.

Facial Regimen

Night: Wash face with Nasabb's Black Soap, Pat Dry, Apply Tretinoin Cream

Morning: Wash face with Nasabb's Black Soap, Pat Dry, Apply Cetaphil Moisturizer

I use a dime size drop of Queen Helen Oatmeal Honey Scrub once a week with the black soap to get rid of any dead skin.

Now how simple is that!!!
