Is it bad that I don’t have a hair regimen. I think im 4b..maybe 4c hair?

Question: Is it bad that I don’t have a hair regimen. I think I’m 4b..maybe 4c. I usually just wash and deep condition every two weeks or as often as needed. Protein treatments like once every two months..but other than that, I don’t do much. Style and keep moisturized. Anyone else? Should i build a regimen and stick by it???

India.Arie Pens an Open Letter to Blue Ivy’s Hair Haters

india.aire

 

After celebrities and fans alike felt a need to go in on Beyonce and Blue Ivy’s choice of hairstyle, India Arie has had enough. Folks got so bad that someone felt a need to start a Change.Org petition.  Syleena Johnson said the child reminded her of Ol’ Dirty Bastard, and everybody has a joke to make about a child. The soulful singer took it back to her “I Am Not My Hair” days and asked people to think about the type of person they want to be and protect the hearts of little ones. Via Twitter she gave her thoughts.

“My thoughts on (Blue Ivy’s) Hair
Why does ANYone get the idea that its ok to make fun of a child?
In public no less?

This celebrity culture that hypnotizes people into thinking a person is LITERALLY NOT REAL because you see them on television is a spell the watcher HIM or HER SELF MUST BREAK.

Blue Ivy — is a CHILD.

and ANYONE thinking to themselves right now:

“But she was born with a silver spoon in her mouth so what does it matter what I say”

Denying ANY PERSON their humanity , is a GAME we should ALL stop playing.

WHY?

Because it’s the kind of PERSON YOU WANT TO BE.

Why NOT be a person who is loving towards human kind as a whole AND people as individuals?
WHY NOT be a person protects the hearts of children?

I think! all these people making negative comments would feel the SAME WAY if Blue Ivy’s hair were TOO DONE. If she had a relaxer, of Hair pulled too tight at the edges.

being gentle with a child’s hair is simply appropriate – this goes the same for ALL children.

come ya’ll Lol

Were ARE better than this. “
