What My Hair Needs This Winter

I feel like every winter it’s cold (like duh right?!) but for some reason each year we scream, “This is going to be the worst winter ever!” But 2018 promises to really be a doozy for us East Coasters.

My New Hair Care Regime Since I’ve Cut & Relaxed My Hair

Today’s blog post is sponsored by Dove. In my last post, I talked about my hair journey and my decision to cut and relax my natural.

Why I Cut My Hair & Got A Relaxer

I entered 2017 with a host of changes sitting on my lap. I wrote my first book and became an author (buy it here). Then Leèroy asked me to marry him and we got engaged (no, that’s not his real name).

How I Keep My Hair Straight… All Day!

One of the main questions I get asked about my hair is, “How do you keep your hair straight?” While I absolutely adore my curls and get a kick out of finding new ways to wear them, my blow-outs warrant affectionate head turns from the opposite sex and give pause to a few girls who didn’t want to look my way…

The One Product You’ll Want To Buy That Will Extend Your Blowout

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Drybar. All opinions are 100% mine. I am that girl who will stretch the goodness of a great blow out for at least 3 (maybe 4!) weeks. Normally I wash my hair every 9 or 10 days but when I get a good blow out I’m committed until the…

All The Reasons Why You Should #LoveYourHair

At 39, my hair is about 75% grey. I’ve had grey hair for what seems like most of my life. I found my very first grey when I was 14. Unlike most women who find grey to be this aging death sentence for your hair follicles, I welcomed every strand. Nearly everyone in my family has grey hair. My mom, my dad,…

What I Used To Dye My Hair Blue

Good morning, what’s goings on in the lands of Zamundas! (aye Snapchat fam) SO. In my mind, I had quit the blue. I thought it was hindering my chances to be on TV and I thought if I looked… like… regular, it would happened (like I can really be regular). But TV just hasn’t happened yet.
