Love it/Leave it: Hair Vitamins

Different hair growth vitamins

I've noticed a spike in people taking Biotin, MSM (aka methylsulfonylmethane), and other hair specific vitamins like Hairfinity and Manetabolism. And not just newly naturals, who tend to crave length above all, but veterans as well. Which is kind of unusual or maybe it's just becoming so commonplace that more folks are willing to talk about their experiences with them once they've past the dreaded awkward stage.

Lena Waithe is an American writer/director/producer from Chicago. After graduating from college she jumped on a plane headed straight to Los Angeles with a goal of making it in the industry. She hustled her way onto major productions like The CW’s Girlfriends, The Secret Life of Bees, Notorious, and I Will Follow. Before deciding to try her hand in the world of internet shorts like Save Me, Body of a Barbie, and Toy.

Remember Akilah Hughes/SmoothieFreak? Well, she hit the nail on the head with her Every Natural Hair Video Ever video. Because let's be honest, we definitely fall into some "traps" when talking about natural hair.

Products Revisited: July 2014

Received as gift Purchased by me


To make Products Revisited slightly obsolete, I've added a new page titled "favorite products." That's where I'm going to keep a running list of products I like enough to purchase again that aren't (always) a part of my current regimen. I don't plan on killing this series, instead, it's going to go be going through extra awkward puberty/revamped. I'm going to use it to use it for short, 30 second texty product reviews. Starting with this one!

Love it/Leave it: Liquid Lipsticks

OCC Primary Pack
OCC Primary Pack & possible color mixtures *

Liquid lipsticks are probably the hottest item on the market this spring/summer. Everyone, literally everyone, has come out with one and the trend doesn't look like it's ending any time soon. And all the love makes sense--who doesn't want a pigmented, long lasting, (often) easy to apply product that promises to never transfer and comes in a billion colors?
