Hairdresser Horrors!

Bellas, I got an e mail that made me laugh out loud this week. Dear Afrobella, I love your website. Thanks so much for taking the time to care about beauty, hair and other issues that related black women. I’ve been looking for a site like this for a while and am glad to have […]

Ask Afrobella – Holla! Great Beauty Buys for Under Five Dollars!

One of my new MySpace friends wrote in with a very valid point. Hey Ms.Afrobella! I love your blog especially your tips and spotlights (my favorite so far is your Eartha Kitt one). I would actually try some of the products but some of them are so expensive! I need to get a job ASAP! […]

Simply the Best

Every month, around what I will refer to as my Super Magic Girl Time, I start breaking out like crazy.
