Natural hair:: February Wrap Up:: Two Strand Twists

Hey ya’ll. It’s hard to believe that February is on its way out and March is marching in. ..:-)

I two strand twisted my hair after it was blown out on February 1.

I wore the twists for 3 weeks in various styles. I ❤ twists. I had several different looks and my hair was very moisturized. ( I wet my hair every 3 days and put the twists back in a protective style. )

Here are a few (OK,  a lot ) pictures of the twists from this month.

I’m off to wash my hair now and figure out what style I wanna rock today.

Natural Hair is the best!! 🙂 in my humble opinion 🙂

Ultimate Natural Hair Icon:: Diana Ross on Oprah

Supreme icon, Diana Ross, appeared on Oprah 2/25/11.

She started the show with her famous song, I’m coming out, her voice was still amazing and she looked beautiful. I was drooling over her hair, of course I was, I ❤ natural hair. (I know, it could be a weave or wig but whateva, I loved it) lol

I have to admit that I was one of the folks who believed the rumors about Diana being the B word. During the interview and after seeing her with her 5 gorgeous, well rounded children, one being my hands down favorite NATURAL beauty, Tracee Ellis Ross, my mind completely changed. I liked Diana Ross, the person, as much as I like her  hair.

Check out the the interview and get to know all of Diana’s children:   http://www.oprah.com/showinfo/Supreme-Icon-Diana-Ross-Her-5-Children-and-Show-Stopping-Performance .

Did you see it on Oprah? What’s your take on her or her hair? 🙂

Kisses for your Soul Series:: Staying Motivated::Will Smith’s Wisdom

Lay it, one brick at a time…

This video of Will Smith is one of my favorite  on Youtube

for Motivation and Inspiration. I refer to it often and have the quotes below memorized. After watching the clip here, you will see why.

As I dwell on trying to grow my business, this snippet picks me right up.. { amongst other tools that I will discuss later on in the series. 🙂 }

One summer his dad tore down a brick wall in front of his business, and told 12-year old Will and his 9-year old brother to re-build it. A  job they said was impossible… it took them a year and a half, but they did it. 

“And he said, now don’t you ever tell me, there’s something that you can’t do.”

“You don’t try to build a wall. You don’t set out to build a wall. You don’t say I’m gonna build the biggest, baddest, greatest wall that’s ever been built. You don’t start there. You say, I’m gonna lay this brick as perfectly as a brick can be laid and you do that every single day and soon you have a wall.”


Let me know your thoughts or what is that motivating thing for you? Is it a quote, a scripture, meditation?

I’d really like to know so spill it by leaving me a comment.. Don’t be shy.. it’s all love here at ETJ. 🙂

Natural Hair: Bronner Bros. Hair Show Features Natural Hair

Heeey Ya’ll, This past weekend the Bronner Bros. held their 64thAnnual International Hair show in Atlanta, GA.  I bet it was fun seeing all the creative hair roaming around the ATL…. anywho..  🙂 For the first time in a long time, Natural Hair had its own stage.  According to a story written  by CNN  ” It’s not just at the Bronner Bros. hair show where discussions on natural hair are bubbling. Websites explaining the pros of going chemical-free and how to wear natural styles have become go-to destinations over the last few years. One of the sites, Nappturality.com, which features forums, tips and advice, has become a place of community support for women who want more natural styles.”
