Greetings brothers and sisters!
The spirit of Harriet Tubman came to me a few moments ago and smacked me in the face and said ‘how dare you dishonor your ancestors by not giving your comrades in this hair struggle a little hook up on these awesome shirts you’re selling?!’
I have seen the error of my ways and am pleased to off you all a 15% discount on your ENTIRE order at brokeymcpoverty.bigcartel.com with code HTUB15! good through the end of the month!
run run run! go go go! DON’T MAKE HARRIET TUBMAN COME AFTER YOU! she has a heavy hand :-(
i didn’t realize my inbox had gotten so beefy during my laziness! lol
responses coming yall! thanks for your patience!
Anonymous asked: when i wash my hair it gets so dry and dull
ah, the eternal natural struggle!
also, i wrote some tips on how i keep my own hair moisturized. check it out here! good luck!
sedimentary-hurricanes asked: I don't have any satin scarves, can I use silk?
absolutely! silk and satin are much easier on the hair than cotton and other materials. neither will suck moisture out of your hair, potentially causing breakage. wrap it on up!
adorableblerd asked: What is (and would you recommend) training one's hair? I ask because I currently live in an environment where my choice of styles (e.g. frohawk) are seen by those I care about as "nappy and unkempt" because it isn't properly trained
hmm. i don’t think i’ve ever heard of “training” one’s hair. i did a quick google search and found this discussion on training natural hair to curl at Curly Nikki. hopefully it’ll help! does anyone else have anything to chime in?
and if i may say, re: resolving the “nappy and unkempt” issue—it seems like the only things to resolve are the unkempt part (if it’s truly unkempt) and caring about how others see your hair. MUCH easier for me to type than it is to just stop caring, especially when it comes to people you care about. but, it’s worth it to try. those who really love and care about you should be able to accept all of your natural self; the beauty they love in you shines through regardless of what your hair is doing. or at least it should.
going natural is an exercise for us, the ones who choose to stop following societal norms, and the ones in our lives, who must also release themselves from the same norms. hair is just hair, and i urge you to do with it what makes you happy, but try to take inventory of whether or not you’re doing it for yourself, or for someone else.
so i’m all for people living their lives as they see fit. what works for one may not work for another, and if you like it, i love it. i use some stuff in my hair that people look down their nose at me at all the time.
that being said…
..maybe we can suggest a few other products for Bruno to try? LOL.
