Ignorant People That Hate On My Fro & Natural Hair

I really like this video, I am glad she had the courage to speak about her feelings and also to actually record them so that she can always remember how she felt, and so that she can show her children. She can teach them to love themselves for who they are!

Follow-up to “Like Butter Baby”

Well I got my new Shea butter in! YAY! It’s great! It is much more smooth and light. It is not oily/greasy like the RA cosmetics brand. This Shea butter was ordered from eBay from cocoabutterstore. I got 2 lbs. of Shea butter for $19.50 (free shipping…well probably shipping included). And I also purchased 1 lb of mango butter for $14. Which is pretty good since it goes a long way. The blocks of butters came in saran wrap and in a plastic baggie. At first I thought…wow! But it works fine, I did not have to take it out and put it in another container. These butters are much better quality! And I really think that these are not refined, unlike the ones that are sold in retail and health food stores. So I am convinced and pleased!
