Enter to Win some of D’aller Naturel’s favorite SheaMoisture Products!!!
Dove recently came out with their “Love Your Curls” Campaign. It was received with mixed reviews–particularly by African American women. Some loved it and were moved to tears. Some thought it was a hijacking and white-washing of the natural hair movement.
2014 has been a wonderful year. D’aller Naturel made its debut on May 1, 2014 from a simple natural hair and health journey documentation to a budding natural hair care, health and beauty resource (and everything in between!). I want to thank each and every one of you for your support, your insight and your encouragement over the last 7 months. Here’s a look back at some of your favorite posts of 2014!
Five months after I originally wrote this post and I still have not big chopped! Not because I’m afraid of it–I’ve long since gotten over that.
When I first read the headlines that Halle Berry took her ex, Gabriel Aubry, to court over her daughter’s hair three weeks ago, I immediately dismissed it as attention-seeking, celebrity nonsense. However, when I read the article and the complaints hurled at Gabriel for trying to white wash their daughter’s image, my interest was piqued.
Celebrity Naturalista and Beyoncé’s younger sister, Solange Knowles, tied the knot this weekend in New Orleans to video director, Alan Ferguson. The entire Knowles family wore white to the nuptials, where the bride and groom showed up on bikes! Needless to say, this fearless Natural looked stunning in both a modern caped Humberto Leon for Kenzo dress and backless Stephane Rolland cream pantsuit, while sporting her natural fro. What do you think of Solange’s wedding look?
Okay, okay, I know that I’ve been MIA on the transitioning hairstyles front–I’m sorry!! 😦 I had a bit of camera and technical troubles, but I think I’m back on track. 🙂 So without further adieu, the first style in the Things My Transitioning Hair Can Do Series is the Satin-Strip Braidout!
Happy Halloween, Everyone!!! The costumes are out, the vibe is spooky, and fall has finally arrived in Virginia! With all the costume ideas out there this year, I decided to not only have some fun at work, but to work a costume around a fabulous protective style: Paying homage to the iconic Janelle Monae, a little extra “umph” to the classic pomp transformed this work look into a perfectly fashionable (and work-appropriate) Halloween statement. How are you rocking your natural hair this Halloween?
Do the rules of natural hair care confuse you? One minute, you’re reading “no shampoo! low manipulation!” and the next you’ve found a blog featuring a naturalista who does twistouts daily, shampoos weekly, and has hair down to her butt! We all know the cardinal rule: No heat. Welp. Now even that’s changed.
Hatred. I’ve never really understood it. There are few tangible things in this world that I actually hate and even fewer people. I say tangible because I hate some ideologies, or notions, if you will–for example, injustice and hatred itself.
