Braid Out Burn Out

Hey Princesses,
I know this face is not fit for a princess, but uugggggghhh!! I feel like my hair has become immune to a successful Braid Out! Either the front is frizzy, the ends are fuzzy, one side is lumpy, one side is puffy, uuggghhhh!!! Normally I take such pride in my Braid Outs, it's how I wear my hair most times.  Yet lately, my hair has been actin' all funny! I have tried changing products, wetting it more,not wetting it, everything!!
Any tips would be most appreciated!!

New Hair Growth Outshines Gold, Really??

As everyone knows by now, Gabby Douglas  has brought home the gold! The first African American woman to win the individual all around gold in Gymnastics! How exciting! Most people are crying tears of joy, shoutin' and telling anyone who will listen. Yet, there are the few, the ridiculous, pathetic nuts, who have decided to take the opportunity to hate.....on her hair!!! The worst tweet I have read so far goes like this..."Jesus, be a hot comb for Gabby, Amen!"......My friends, you have just read the official "Prayer of Ignorance".

What you are reading right now is a natural hair blog, called N.A.P.P. That stands for Natural and Proud Princesses. Here at N.A.P.P we are proud of our kinky curly hair. So naturally, I am taking great offense to this mess. Now, Gabby's hair is certainly natural at the roots, we can clearly see that. It looks like some extensions are in as well. When she sweats, obviously her roots will's what happens, period!! It's called hair, big deal! She's gorgeous!!

It is so sad that most of this criticism and hair haterism has been coming from African Americans! African American women at that! It is so embarrassing. When Kim Zmeskal won all of her medals in the 90's, did we see any white people talking about her hair, or high pitched voice? No, they stayed focused. They focused on the accomplishment. Why don't we try that!!

Her "new growth" DOES NOT outshine her GOLD!! Get over it sistas and brothas, and stop embarrassing us!! Stop belittling our entire race with this crap!

Oprah don' lost her Natural Mind!! YAAAY!!

Hi Princesses!!!!
Well, the diva of all things gla-mour, the queen of all things upscale, the CEO of all of everybody's favorite things, has shown us her hair "in it's natural state" as Oprah puts it. This is the upcoming cover of O Magazine. We have gotten sneek peaks of her natural hair before. Yet, it's always been blown out fairly straight. This look is tight and curly.

Well, my first impression of this picture was, woow!! I am happy to see her ditch the layers and bone straight  look, for curls. However, I must say, it looks a little 1990's to me. Sorry!!! I have an urge to sing an En Vouge or SWV hit!  Sorry O!!!! Even 1980's.  I do believe she took a photo from her favorite Pointer Sisters Album Cover and said " Andre, make me look like this!"  "Jump,Jump, for my luuv!"  Ok, I'm done...;)

I joke, but this is a nice change! With all of the straightening she does on a daily basis, I wonder how she prevents massive heat damage to her tresses??

What do you think? Some are saying there were some curling irons or pieces used to get this look. Share your thoughts!
