RIP Michael Jackson

Monday, June 29, 2009

I know this is a bit late, but I still wanted to do this anyway.

Very very rarely is the world ever gifted such talent and humanity. Music-wise there is noone greater than MJ. Noone. His performances, second to none.

I grew up listening to Michael and I think most who did, will admit that his music made their childhood that little bit brighter. I'm not saying he was all of my childhood, but those moments when 'Bad' or 'Billie Jean' came on the radio and your legs seemed to take on a life of their own, made you stand up and gave you the audacity to think you could even remotely dance like MJ .... or when I recall singing along "Ashiwoke se ashiwoke Annie" to Smooth Criminal LOL. Those moments were GOLDEN and will FOREVER be cherished.

Michael also dreamt for the children that we all forget. He refused to turn a blind eye like most of us do. I pray that the world remembers that of him too.

Anyway, enough of me rambling. We all know he was and is a LEGEND. His memory and music will always be remembered.

Rest in peace Michael Joseph Jackson.

L'Oreal Found Guilty of Racism

Thursday, June 25, 2009

Apparently they sent a fax around saying that only white French people could be recruited to promote Garnier products.

It's disheartening that this sort of thing still happens in 2009!!! Come on! So when sistas complain about not being able to find jobs, it's not in their heads! This is the type of thing we're put up against. It's ridiculous... OK fair enough, I'm sure their biggest market is white ... but I'm sure there is a fair amount of black women using their products as well ...I also don't think white people would stop using Garnier products because there's a black person promoting it.

And L'oreal says they're 'dissapointed' by the verdict?? I reckon they're only 'dissapointed' they got caught out!!

What a shame...

Hair Growth - Growing Back Edges with Emu Oil - Update 1

Sunday, June 14, 2009

I know, I know, I deserve a good hiding for being slow on the updates! I'm sorry ... Exams have been murder! They went well though, thank you for asking. But I'm definately glad it's all over and I can get back into some serious hair growing.

Ok, back on topic. So I've been applying the emu oil to my edges (and to most of my hair for sealing) every other day ... I'd say on three or four days per week. I'm really pleased with the results so far and will continue to do this for the full three months. So before y'all start wishing you could just post up the "this post is worthless without pics" emoticon, I'll just save you the trouble lol. Here they are:

Right Side Edges

This side is worse than the left side - I think it's because it's the side I sleep on????

Left Side Edges:

I think both sides are coming along nicely : )

Now, I'll just say this. I'm not saying that everyone should go out and buy Emu Oil, I'm not saying it's a miracle in a bottle and will grow your hair back overnight. I've done a lot of research on Emu Oil and I found that it has properties which would be beneficial to my stressed edges. You can read about those properties in the first Growing Back Edges with Emu Oil post. It seems to be working really well for ME and it might not work for you. I'm just DOCUMENTING and sharing my experiences.

I'm really happy with the progress and hopefully it continues to grow this well over the remaining 2 months.

So.... go on, add your 2 cents! I'd love do hear your thoughts on this.
