The Politics of Girl World (part 3) Lightskinned vs Darkskinned

Hey you guys! Its ya girl J*P* comin at you with another segment of "The Politics of Girl World". Today we are talking about lightskinned vs darkskinned. Alot of people tend to believe that the fairer you are, the better. Not true. So many women in foreign countries, layon beaches and sulk up sun to achieve those rich darker tones so why are women fretting and bleaching when they are naturally blessed with them. And, why are women trying to convince themselves that they are one color when they are another. Don't get me wrong because all colors are beautiful. Its just something about that gorgeous tanned/bronzed brown skin that appeals to me. I am neither lightskinned nor darkskinned, I am this color:  (caramel/peanutbutter/brownskinned tone) Now, If you are this color then you should not go around claiming to be "lightskinned" because NEWSFLASH you're not. To be lightskinned means to have very little-no brown on you. And this color clearly has a nice sha

HAIR! Your Questions and My Answers ;)

hey you guys! its ya girl J*P* comin at ya with a hair post.YAY! IK its been a while but i have some pretty gud info here. 1) What is the difference between a moisturizing deep conditioner and a protein deep conditioner, and how often should i use both? Well, a moisturizing deep conditioner will usually say things like "revitalizes" "nourishes" "moisturizes" and/or "hydrates". A protein conditioner will either say "protein" "mayonnaise" or "cholestrol". A moisturizing conditioner is adding moisture to dry hair, feeding it so to speak. A protein conditioner is strengthening the hair and filling in weak spots. You should do a protein treatment every 3-6 weeks and a moisturizing deep condition with every wash. 2)What does it mean to be "heat trained"? To be heat trained is to purposely "damage" natural hair to losen the curl pattern as a better alternative to a chemical processor. 3)What

The Politics of Girl World (part 2)******

Hey you guys! Its ya girl J*P* comin at you with a continuation on my Oct 1st post "The Politics of Girl World". As you know, women (teen girls specifically) have these unspoken unwritten rules to value and beauty. However, these rules are so wrong and these posts are here to prove it. Ok so alot of women (black women specifically) believe that natural hair is not acceptable and that relaxed hair is a necesity for beauty. It is sooo untrue. These are two stunning natural haired ladies:   so as you can clearly see, that belief is false. beautiful women come in all forms:) keep it stylin! Thee Josh* Paramore*
