My Black is Beautiful But....

I was having an interesting convo with someone and we were talking about black hair. A lot of people say "my black is beautiful" but have permed hair. Black textured hair is something that is unique to our race. Does this sound like a contradicting statement to make? My black is beautiful but my hair isn't??!! I would like to know some thoughts about this subject...Leave some comments below please!

Re-Grouping After a Major Hair Set Back: What You Will Need

Have you ever suffered from heat damage, breakage, or "protective" styling gone wrong? Well you came to the right place.

What You Will Need:

1. Some Patience
2. A Clear Mind
3. Optimistic Thinking

Now for Products:
1. Peppermint Oil, I can not STRESS this enough.  If you want to grow your hair back, peppermint oil stimulates hair growth, more than any other oil I have experimented with.

2. Spray bottle. You will need plenty of water to help new stronger hair grow. If you don't get anything else, mix your peppermint oil(5-10 drops) in a spray bottle with water. You will feel a major difference.

3. Castor Oil. This will help with thickness, or at least be a great sealant for your hair. Never forget to add water first.

4. Shea, easy, effective.

5. Glycerin mixed with Water...(not to be used with dry weather)

In Other News: My first light Blowout since I started my journey, I didn't want a completely straighten look, it was just so the person doing my hair wouldn't curse me out. Plus I didn't want heat damage.
