Natural Hair and Advertising...Too Much For Some?

Natural Hair and Advertising...Too Much For Some?

"I am sick of seeing all those commercials with ethnic/nappy/natural hair!"

I'm not gonna lie and say I remember WHERE I actually read this comment, I must also admit I am paraphrasing because I was only skimming a mag and my mind was actually somewhere else.  Later that day, when I slowed down for a minute, I was really shocked and wished I would have paid more attention to the comment.

After I let the thought sit and fester I started asking myself why someone would be offended or angry by Black women with Natural hair being used in commercials.   

Could it be some relaxed women are feeling the media thinks all Black women are Natural?  

Could it be some Naturals feel these are merely marketing ploys to get Naturals to buy their products?  

Are these just some Black woman who find the 'ethnic' or Natural look embarrassing? 

Not a clue but I thought it would be interesting to give my take on them.  

Four Ways to Find and Wear Affordable Stylish Eyeglasses



Smooth skin usually means healthy skin. On the other hand, roughness, wrinkling, and discoloration indicate that the skin isn't in the best condition. If your skin looks 20 years your senior, you probably have some bad habits that are harming it. 

So many different things can damage your skin, but here are a handful that you can actually do something about - provided by Austin dermatologist, Dr. Nicholas Snavely.

Sun Overexposure
Getting a good 30 minutes of direct sunlight a day is good for you at the right times, but any more than that can be detrimental to your skin. Sunlight provides the skin with vitamin D, but it also contains cancer-causing UV rays. Too much sun can also burn the skin leaving it aged and blotchy.

Smoking
Smoking is a leading cause of lung cancer, but did you know that it ages your skin too? Your skin will become significantly more wrinkly after years of smoking, so drop the "cancer sticks" if you want to keep it looking good.

Fighting Frizz On Natural Hair


Frizz, frizzy hair, frizzy natural hair.  This is a very common and quite annoying phenomenon that many (if not all) Naturals have battled at least once during their Natural hair journey.  Whether you are a newbie or a veteran, frizz can be an issue and can create a bad hair day if you let it.

I'm sure by now you know I've adopted the Curly Girl Method (CGM) by Lorraine Massey and even discussed in earlier posts (Trying the Curly Girl Method).  Despite my love of it, I haven't discussed many of the WONDERFUL tips and information that fills her book, Curly Girl: The Handbook [With DVD].
