Recently I came across this article and clicked on it hoping to learn some hair tips and tricks. I had legit hope for this article only to find that 70% of the “tips” from professional hairstylists were actually pretty… unhelpful. So much so that I feel like I have to “respond” in my own post.
Here are a few things that I want professional hairstylists to know.
The best way to have started my week was with a trip home. Things have been a bit out of order around here and it was all starting to take a toll on my mood (and happiness). I had the opportunity to go home for a few days for a celebration and to just soak up my family and friends and everything “normal”.
For those who are unaware, my hair is natural and in order to trim it, it has to be as stretched as possible. In order to stretch my hair, it heat has to be applied to it (blow-dry or flat iron). Because I am afraid of heat damage, I opt for blow drying because to gets my hair stretched enough for my stylist to find and clip dead ends. Every time I go in for a trim, which is about 2-3 times a year, I always get excited about the length of my afro, so I wear it that way for a day or two after. I am proud of my hair. I love my hair. The only reason I don’t wear an afro everyday is because it causes split ends and I want to retain as much length as possible.
Ever since my mom was in charge of making sure I was clean, clothed, and fed, I’ve been using Secret as my go-to deodorant. As I got older and learned about the confirmed and unconfirmed dangers of the main ingredient in most deodorants, aluminum, I decided I wanted to make informed decisions about something that I was applying to my body every single day.
