Pi Nappa Kappa


A fellow Natural sent me some information on a Natural Hair Sorority on Facebook.

An interesting concept, I couldn’t help but check it out and see what it was all about. What can I say, I’ve always wanted to be in a Sorority. What better one than for Natural hair 🙂

Book Alert: The Science of Black Hair


The last book I purchased on Black hair was a bit of a disappointment so I’m hoping this one lives up to all the praise I’ve been reading about on the hair forums.

For more info on what the book has to offer, please check out their website The Science of Black Hair .

I can’t wait to get my copy!!!

Dark Girls: Preview


This clip is circulating within the Natural Hair community and is generating a lot of conversation.

I look forward to seeing it when it’s released this fall.

Dark Girls:

Clips from the upcoming documentary exploring the deep-seated biases and attitudes about skin color—particularly dark skinned women, outside of and within the Black American culture.

This film will be released in Fall/Winter 2011. Please “Like” the Dark Girls page on Facebook, we will keep you updated with news there.
