Super Easy Dread Wrap

Posted In Hair, Locs

I demonstrate how you can wrap your locs in less than one minute. I took this idea from loc’d model Nerissa Irving, who mentioned it in one of her recent beauty regimen videos.

Honey Fig Christmas in July Sale

Posted In Beauty, Hair

Honey Fig is a natural hair (and beauty) store located in Toronto (4967 Yonge St). It’s where I recently purchased the Cocoveda Ayurvedic shampoo bar and lavender essential oil I mention in my loc maintenance video. It’s also where I purchase one of my ALL-TIME favourite staples, Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel for Sensitive Skin.

They are having a Christmas in July Sale. Check it out…

 

Honey-Fig-2

 

“Starting July 25th through to July 31st, HoneyFig is celebrating Christmas in July. Along with our promoted online sales and in-store flash sales, we are kicking it up a notch and offering to pay the sales tax on all of your HoneyFig purchases, July 25th – July 31st. That’s right – No Tax!

Best of all, no promo code to remember; the only thing to need to keep in mind, is that this sale ends 8pm EST (in store) and 12pm midnight EST (on line) on July 31st.

Oh yeah… one more thing, we will be closing an hour earlier – at 7pm, on Thursday, July 24th; as the elves will be busy preparing for our Christmas.

Merry J-Xmas
The HoneyFig Team”

RIP Maya Angelou

Posted In Uncategorized

Maya-Angelou-Quotes-2

 

As you may know, Dr. Maya Angelou passed away this past Wednesday – May 28, 2014.

Words cannot express how great an influence Maya Angelou has had on my life.

I picked up her (autobiographical) book, “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” at the age of about 13. At the time, I was attending an almost all white school and lived in an almost all white area. I was battling my own demons on the homefront as well. Seeing how she managed to come to peace with who she was — as a young black woman —  and the things that had happened to her gave me my first glimmer of hope. I cannot count how many times I have read the book from cover to cover over the years.

She was a woman of great wisdom, power, and strength. Never will she be forgotten.

Here her recite my all-time favourite poem here.

Black Woman with Dreadlocks

Posted In Hair, Locs

bw-w-dreadlocks1

Guess who was featured on the “Black Women with Dreadlocks” Facebook page this past week?

I’ve been locked for almost 16 months now. No more than 6 months ago, I was still self-conscious about my locs. Many people didn’t know I had locs and some would ask me what was going on with my hair. A few others questioned my desire to lock my hair and pointed out that because of my texture I could easily comb the locs out (unravel them to remove them).

I’ve always admired locs and am just now realizing that they’re an expression of my personality. No longer am I learning to love my hair… I my hair!

If you’d like to see more of my loc journey. Feel free to check out my Instagram or YouTube.
