It’s about time we elbowed our way into the industry!

Not much seems unusual about Judian and Kadeian Brown’s storefront in a tidy plaza off Church Avenue in Flatbush, Brooklyn, a neighborhood where every block seems to have its own African hair-braiding salon.
What makes Black Girls Divine Beauty Supply and Salon’s visitors do a double-take is the skin color of the proprietors. “I go, ‘Look at all the faces on the boxes,’ ” said Judian Brown, recalling other shopkeepers’ and customers’ surprise when they realize she is not an employee, but the owner. “Who should be owning these stores?” [My emphasis]

STILL WAITING FOR AN EMAIL FOR A JOB INTERVIEW I WENT TO ON WEDNESDAY
It’s rude as fuck to ask “is that your hair/is that your real hair” cause who you asking? Only Black women. Not these lil white girls with Claires clip ins. Just us.
Hey ok i have colored hair and its long and people ask me if its my real hair. Any white girl with long hair gets asked that. Stop victimizing yourself.
THE ULTIMATE WHITE GIRL INTERJECTION
Shea Moisture recently released a Manuka Honey & Mafura line (as well as a Jamaican Black Castor Oil line) that I’m sincerely in love with.
Manuka benefits for hair: aids in the regrowth of thinning hair, prevents dry scalp and build up and dope for shine and combatting frizz.
Mafura benefits for hair: Contains essential fatty acids that are known to strengthen, deeply moisturize and soften dry hair. Also has anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties for a healthier scalp.
In other words? Your hair health, scalp health and growth are about to be on 10! I’ve been using the conditioner and deep conditioner once a week followed by the Alikay Naturals Lemongrass leave-in (finger raked into freshly washed, soaking wet hair) and then a layer of their Shea Yogurt Moisturizer on top, to seal it all in (Discussed this organic brand a few months back. Here)
Both lines were purchased at Target! The weather is changing up so this is my go-to healthy hair regimen for the cooler temps.
P.S. ALL of these smell like absolute heaven on earth. Seriously.
Have any of you tried these products? Thoughts?
