Smooth 4a/4b Edges with Murray’s Pomade (pics & video) | Natural Socialite

In Product Reviews, YouTube Videos on September 28, 2011 at 9:30 am

Greetings All!! I just wanted to show you guys how I use Murray’s pomade to smooth my edges that absolutely refuse to cooperate with gels and other edge control products. Sometimes you just have to take it back to the old school methods to finally find what you are looking for.  I picked up this Murray’s pomade from Walgreen’s about a week or so ago, and so far it has worked fairly well.  My search for edge control products is not up just yet, but  this will definitely stay in the arsenal until I find that ultimate product.

The price point of Murray’s pomade is very inexpensive at around $2.99 per container.  My main gripe with this product is that it contains both mineral oil & petroleum, but it works so…..yeah, I’m using it.

If you guys have any other suggestions for products that help smooth 4a/4b natural hair, please let me know ;0)  Until then, check out the YouTube video on how I’ve been using this product.

“Dark Girls” Documentary Preview | Exploring complexion biases & attitudes

In Art & Beauty, Education, Self Help Series, YouTube Videos on May 26, 2011 at 1:14 pm

Check out the preview of this very interesting documentary which explores the complexion biases within the black community. Skin tone bias is a form of group privilege of some sort, in which people from the same race use factors such as skin tone, physical features, class, and communication to create social caste systems and  hierarchies within their own cultures.  The idea that there is some sort of “privilege” that still exists these days deeply disturbs me. The problem with this idea of group privilege is that is serves as a source of anguish and controversy because it grants unearned privilege to those with these particular characteristics, perpetuating discrimination and power disparities in all aspects of our lives. I think that one of the most disturbing examples in this preview is the young child who clearly identifies “light-skinned” people with being beautiful and “dark-skinned” individuals with being ugly.

Can any of you identify with some of the feelings that these women share?  What about the guys?  Do you find black women of a particular complexion more attractive?  Parents…. What are doing to prepare your children in terms of self-acceptance?  Do you think white people are as concerned about our complexions as we are?  Take a look at this video & please share your thoughts.

Summertime Hair Styling for Naturals & Transitioners | The Twist & Curl

In Natural Hair, Products, Seasonal Hair Care, Style Guide, Transition tips, YouTube Videos on May 23, 2011 at 10:06 am

I’ve received a few questions about summertime styling options from both naturals & transitioners alike. My hands-down favorite go to style while I was transitioning was the twist & curl. This style gave me the “natural look” while also allowing me to blend the two vastly different textures I was working with.  Instead of doing a video myself on this style & its variations, I though that I would just share with you some of the videos that personally helped me along the way.

Starting with freshly cleaned & conditioned hair, the twist & curl method consists of starting the two strand twist style with the styling products of your choice.  My favorite products for this style are the Cantu Shea Butter leave in on top of the Cantu Shea Butter Hair & Scalp oil. Using a combination of these two products kept me from seeing white flakes from the Cantu leave in.  After twisting small to medium sections of hair, roll the ends of the hair with perm rods & allow hair to completely dry.  I recommend a cool hooded dryer if you don’t have the entire weekend to let your hair air dry.
