Can you say all occasion natural? Since I became line sisters of the BEST sorority, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. with this young woman I’ve been crushing extra hard on her hair.
Whereas I’ve come across plenty of times where I was completely stomped on what to do with my natural hair, especially on special occasions, this natural beauty is the epitome of natural hair for all occasions. Check out these various styles! Each time she absolutely rocked it!
Of course when I inquired as to her styling process she says easily, “Girl, all I do is…”
Lol. Y’all know how the rest of that story goes.
Well whatever she does, it works!
Thought fathers were exempt from my hair crushes? Not at all! This month’s hair crush is my very own husband who’s rocking starter locs!
He won’t admit it, of course, but I know my loc rocking inspired him to start his journey (albeit ironic that he waited until I combed mine out! We could’ve been rocking locs together.) By the way in the above picture, yours truly did those twists! Not too shabby, huh?
He’s got that soft curly like hair so his hair is taking its sweet time loc’ing but as long as he doesn’t give up, they’ll be loc’d in no time.
Side note: Mine might be too! 😉
Happy Father’s Day honey and all other dads doing the dad thang!
It’s Mothers Day! So I’m featuring my beautiful mom as my May hair crush! Not just because she’s mom but because she’s a true natural beauty.
My mom, like me, has been natural in the sense of being relaxer free, for most of her adult life. But unlike me, she’s not of the generation where she feels a need to identify herself as such.
Products used? Whatever the heck she wants! Believe me, she will NOT be going to any Trader Joes or Better Health stores for any costly all-natural hair products. She’s perfectly fine using plain ‘ole Jam gel when she slicks her hair back into a ponytail, which is her go-to style.
Every now and then she’ll switch it up and dazzle us with with a curly ‘do or press it out and showcase her lengthy salt and pepper hair.
No matter how age rocks her natural, it looks good on her, especially when it’s accessorized with her dazzling smile.
Love her to pieces as she’s the best mother and grandmother any child could ask for!
