Natural 1 year
Angela Easterling | Wed, May 15, 2013 | Comments (0)

Soon I will make 1 year on my natural journey. What a ride!


My first year as a natural has been a journey for me no doubt. I've learned so many things about my hair along with a few things about myself. I've made lifestyle changes and have taken a greater effort in not only what you see outside but inside.

I remember posting a blog that made my natural journey seem uncertain. I want to let you all know that many of those insecurities I've faced in the beginning no longer exist. I'm still get subconscious sometime, but for the most part, I've embraced my natural hair. This is who I am and I expect to be accepted just this way. With that said, I must admit that my awesome experiences have far outweighed the undesirables.

5 Rules from the Recovering Product Junkie
Angela Easterling | Thu, Feb 21, 2013 | Comments (4)

I recall glancing over my bathroom counter at an overwhelming amount of hair product containers. Some nearly empty, some barely used. They covered almost every empty space on and under my counter. My husband barely had room for his essentials, imagine his frustration. At that time I knew I needed either an intervention and support group for my addiction or a plan of attack.

Choosing the latter, I came up with 5 rules to keep me in control when adding products to my collection. So far, they've help gain back my counter space and possibly save my marriage *wink*. So I now pass them to you.


  1. Understand What Your Hair Wants and Needs
  2. I can't stress ho

Where natural hair doesn't fit
Angela Easterling | Sun, Dec 16, 2012 | Comments (0)

Writing this blog is sort of bitter sweet for me. On one hand, I love my natural hair. I love the thickness, the versatility, the curls, the "FUNK" OWWW! LOL! I can literally pose in the mirror for hours. But, on the other hand, I have a few obstacles that have made my natural experience not as awesome as it should be.

It was only 8 months ago when my transition was complete and I celebrated with a Big Chop. Well, for me I big chopped twice, sort of a pre big chop then a final. My hair, for most of my life, has been pretty typical. I've always worn it straight or pulled back into a pony tail. During my early 20's I cut and wore it short, but it was still a pretty basic style.

After watching Chris Rock's, "Good Hair", documentary, I decided to take better care of mine. I began stretching my relaxers 2
