    here’s some burning sage to cleanse ur blog of bad energies 

    I felt obligated to reblog this

    It’d be hilarious if reblogging an image of this actually had the same effect for a tumblr dashboard

    let’s find out

    Some good juju right here.

    Bye bye bad energy!

    Let’s cleanse this baby!

    why do i feel like i have to reblog this

    So, I just tried to do finger coils on my “4C” hair. Bad idea. 

    It’s not that it couldn’t have worked on my hair, it’s that lately I feel like a bit of a fool trying to cajole my hair into styles that will make it socially acceptable. Why do I keep trying to achieve that mixed girl curl?

    I know why. It’s because I can’t go to work without somebody asking me if I’m gon “do something with my hair”. Sure, I can solve this problem by never having to work for a corporation, but it’s deeper than that. It’s sad that even within a movement that’s supposed to celebrate the way I was born, I am isolated because I still don’t have the right type of hair. 

    You youtube tutorialists giving girls like me false hope in being able to achieve these styles tailored to light skin girls (Sorry, that was childish) are the worst. “All you have to do is”, “the only products you need are”…Naw, all I have to do is be mixed for this shit to work! 

    Just tell the truth. Traditional natural hair is not for everybody. And that’s ok. Stop talking like the Natural Hair Movement is a family thing. There is not a lot of honesty there and I’m sick of it.

    I think it’s time I do what my hair has been wanting to do since 2011, LOCs…I think…

    I’m in love with this gif. Everything about it. The rain drizzling. The candle flickering. The colors. I love it.

  15. Black people police themselves so much in public



    And they don’t even think about it. Don’t talk too loud, don’t make too many requests, don’t complain too forcefully about shitty service, put up with weird ass slightly racial compliments. And sometimes we joke about it like “lol! Better not do (normal human thing) cuz then people might think we’re uncivilized niggers” but it’s a painful constricting way to live. And not a type of way of living that non-Black people will understand
