Just a ‘feel good’ moment!




Last year at the ‘Modefabriek’ (Dutch fashion fair) I fell in love with a sweater by I brand I had never heard of. It was called ElevenParis and the sweater  had Cara Delevingne printed all over.  But this brand has been active from 2003, I just missed out.

We see more and more naturals on the streets, on the television, the music industry and in Movies. But we have not seen a fro like this on the basketball court.

R.I.P. Titi Cree Branch


Titi Branch, one of the co-founders of the wildly successful natural hair care line, Miss Jessie’s, died Dec. 4 All over the internet we can read that it was an apparent suicide but there was no independent confirmation of that. A graduate of the University of Maryland, she was 45. With her sister Miko, Branch ran a New York salon. Tweets from Miko and the Miss Jessie’s Twitter account appeared to be small tributes to the fallen entrepreneur.

Miss Jessie’s was one of the first major hair care lines to grace the shelves of Target in the new wave of natural hair enthusiasm.

Tatyana Ali talks HAIR!

Tatyana Ali opens up to VladTV about how she feels about people’s obsession with her hair, while chalking her nice tresses up to good health and her genes. The singer says that she wasn’t always so fond of her hair growing up, because she was singled out for it as a kid, which made her feel a certain type of way.

She then talks about Chris Rock’s “Good Hair” documentary and how she wished he would have reached out to her, because she wanted to tell a different side to his story. Tatyana says that children are affected by the term “good hair” in both negative and positive ways.
