Twist-Out Pictures

Here are the pictures of my twist-out that resulted from the video I posted of my wash/condition routine.

After one week I co-washed my twists, let them dry overnight, and added shea butter before unravelling.

After they were dry I moisturized with shea butter and unravelled. I also added a headband

Back - you can see a little hole - but it went away by the middle of the week!
Peace and Blessings...

Documentary: Where Hair Comes From

In light of the news I read about Chris Rock being sued over his movie - read the story here - I remembered a BBC documentary I saw about a pop star - Jamelia, going to India investigating the international trade in real human hair. Apparently the documentary has been taken off of BBC, but I found some videos on YouTube that show some of it. Check them out.

Also check out this article on the documentary - Why I'll never wear hair extensions again, by pop star Jamelia

Oprah and Chris Rock 'Good Hair'

I didn't get a chance to see the Oprah and Chris Rock 'Good Hair' show as of yet, but I've been scouring the Internet looking for reviews and clips of the show. Doing my 'research' I came across some very interesting commentary on the show, one of which stood out the most.

This came in the form of a video commentary from the YouTube channel Kimmaytube. She brought up the fact that the show focused on the term 'Good Hair' relating it to perms and weaves versus hair with a certain texture. She also had some interesting views about Solange and Oprah. Check it out (don't forget to rate the video and check out her other videos which are also great).

*On the video she gives instructions on how to get to her 'Good Hair' commentary but if you watch from here you wont be able to follow them, so just scroll to 4:30 if you don't want to watch the beginning.*
