In case you’ve been wondering — what’s Afrobella up to? I’ll tell ya.
Grustling. Real hard.
I’ve been working my fingers to the nub to keep the fires blazing here at Afrobella while writing at AOL Black Voices and tah-dah — just last week I wrote my first article for Ebony! Yup, it’s about Michael Jackson. I hope you all like it and leave comments and YAY!
After that, I was featured as EbonyJet’s featured blog. DOUBLE YAY!!!
Twas a good week indeed.
Over at Black Voices I blogged about Alicia Keys’ hair, missing the Essence Festival, and I answered some hair questions.
Speaking of which — have you heard of the Cherry Lola method? The creator, Cherry Lola, claims that it’s helped to control her frizz and caused her curls to clump together at the root. I’m curious, and I have cooked with amino acids before! Might have to buy a bottle just for this purpose.
UK bellas here’s something for you — AfroSaxons, a limited release documentary that follows four black hair salons in the UK as they prepare for the Black Beauty and Hair Awards. I’m seriously looking forward to seeing this, based on the logo alone — isn’t it awesome? I can’t wait to see this, just like I’m looking forward to finally seeing Chris Rock’s Good Hair when it finally hits the big screen.
Do you have Hand In Fro Syndrome? I’ve got it bad and that ain’t good! Diary of a Kinky Curly Transition has tips to kick the habit.
Another bad hair habit of mine — trying any product that comes my way. I balk at a few ingredients — mineral oil and alcohol, but there are more to avoid. AfroGlitz did a great post on things your natural hair hates.
In other fabulous hair blog news, one of my favorite sites, The Coil Review, has launched their new debut. And their launch video is FRESH to DEATH.

SO fly, and that’s exactly how I feel about my hair and my style. Why be a carbon copy when you can be an original?
And if you ARE a proud, original Afrobella, here’s an opportunity for you! Pantene is looking for 4 African-American women to appear in national advertising in 2010. To enter, simply upload a video expressing their love for Pantene in Pantene’s “I Love Pantene!” online casting call at www.relaxedandnatural.com.
Best of luck to you, bellas!! And thanks for hanging in there with me. I might be busy, but I’m always thinking of you!
