Here’s what our founder and co-director, Jamaica Gilmer, took away from her time with Marleigh during their photo shoot for #theblackgirltriptych!
We believe that Black women are an exhibit. We do. But mostly the fine-art-lean-in-close-but-don’t-touch-learn-here-walk-away-different-because-of-your-experience-here kind of exhibit. And may I re-emphasize the “don’t touch” part? But there are some women who invite the hands-on approach. They find it makes for a richer experience; quells curiosity, answers questions long left mysterious. Un’ruly.com has posted a very interesting short film negotiating this very idea. Check out this YouTube video, part one of two, where Black women make their hair an exhibit in a very personal way. While you’re at it, please take a moment to click the pages of their very interesting, very striking website. Tell us what you think. Can people lay hands to learn more about you? Tweet it @thebeautifulprj, leave a comment or head over to FaceBook and share what you think!

When the weather changes most of us have to change how we care for our hair. Typically, our hair needs more moisture and maintenance in colder temperatures. There’s much conversation about hair porosity, hair type and textures, the condition of the scalp, and the list goes on, that influence what our winter regimen should look like. It can get to be a bit much . . . unless you have help! For the girl who needs a little hair help when it’s cold outside, check out this post from Curly Nikki’s site.
Have a cold weather regimen that works for you? Share in the comments!
