Jiggaboos and Wanna-Bees

I love Chris Rock for making this movie, exploring the topic of "good hair" in our community, and owning up to the fact that there is still self-hatred and ignorance among us. I hope this film is an eye opener, and that women see themselves in this film.

Newly Natural

Pop princess and famous lil' sis Solange Knowles shaved her head recently. Here's the quote:

"I just wanted to be free from the bondage that black women sometimes put on themselves with hair. "

Please comment on this one guys. Input please! Let's just see how long before she throws a lace front back on. I'm just sayin'. I don't think she's in this for the long haul.
