And I wondered if anyone could do anything more ignorant...

So, I posted this flyer that I saw online on NP to discuss the foolishness that still abounds in 2011

So evidently the creators of Mixed Chicks decided to join in on the fuqqery and posted #team lightskinned
on twitter as a "response" to this party.  Really?  Did they think that was very business savvy or smart?  I do not condone any hierarchies that are divisive amongst the black community.  Whether it's hair texture, skin tone, SES, there are a plethora of things out there to divide us but one would hope that business owners who benefit from black consumers wouldn't cosign and subscribe to such foolishness.  Evidently this is not the case and the Mixed Chicks owners hopped on this ignorant bandwagon.  I have purchased their deep conditioner before and liked it but they will not get anymore of my hard earned money.  For further information on the shenanigans, visit http://sakitaholley.com/2011/01/17/the-pr-fallout-from-mixedchicks-choosing-a-side

Mizani True Textures Curl Replenish Product Review

I received this product from Naturallycurly.com and was excited to try a new deep conditioner.  This conditioner claims to soften and moisturize your tresses.  The directions state to leave in for up to 5 minutes or for a deeper treatment, use plastic cap and sit under heated dryer for up to 10 minutes.  I chose the deep treatment route and used my heated bonnet for about 10 minutes.  As I was applying the conditioner to my hair, I was skeptical of the results because the product was not making my hair feel good upon application.  After my timer went off, I proceeded to rinse the conditioner out with cold water.  My hair was HARD!!!!!!  I really do not like how my hair felt, it did not feel softened nor moisturized.  Overall, I would give this product a thumbs down.  Many of the ingredients are not natural, the front of the container boasts the use of jojoba oil, apricot, etc... but of course those ingredients are far down the list.  The dominating ingredients are cones and alcohols.  I think this may have a lot to do with my hair feeling hard because I typically don't use non-natural products.  I definitely would not purchase this, nor do I plan to use it again.

The Game Season Premiere Viewing Party

Necole and I were able to attend the viewing party of "The Game".  We both love this show and it was great to see the premiere before it actually airs on 1/11/11. The episode was excellent and so much happened.  The organization of the premiere left much to be desired but I can't say that I'm surprised.  (Insert side eye here)  Anyway, here are a couple of pics.

Product Review: Komaza Haircare's Olive Moisture Mask

Hi Curlies, this week’s product review comes just in time with the harsh weather we’ve been experiencing here in GA and with the possibility of snow on the horizon again this weekend:)  My hair has been overly dry:( and I've been looking for a deep conditioner to moisturize the mane!

On to the review! My first product review features Komaza Haircare’s Olive Moisture Mask (deep conditioner).  On an unexpected visit to Sage Naturalceuticals, here in Atlanta a friend recommended the product and I could not wait to get home and try it out. 

The Claim:  This thick creamy olive butter deep conditioner is designed to detangle, moisturize, and soften hair to put an end to breakage. Komaza Care’s Olive Moisture Mask does not contain proteins making it friendly to deep condition weekly if you choose (http://www.komazahaircare.com/)
The Verdict: The minty green color kind of the threw me off, but the creamy consistency of the product melted into my thirsty curls.  After sitting under a hooded dryer for 30 minutes, then detangling, my hair felt like COTTON!  Once I rinsed with cool water to close the cuticle, I was in love with the results!  I am off to purchase the second jar this weekend, so yes it's a keeper as a staple product!
Don't take my word for it, try a sample or the 16oz jar which can be purchased here for $16.00, plus shipping. I promise you, it WILL NOT disappoint!
Give it a try and let us know what you think!
