Kim Wayans is Back On the Couch , Talking #Reckless


The homie, Kim Wayans, is back on the couch, y'all!

Tell us about your current relationship with your hair? 
I'm just loving it. With each passing year, I become more and more appreciative of the uniqueness and versatility of my bush. A few months ago, I started finger combing my hair... I notice it sheds a lot less than when I use a comb.  Although, I remain open to trying new products, I pretty much have it down to a science- what works and what doesn't work for my hair. I like to keep my routine fairly simple because there's nothing more frustrating than taking six hours to do your hair and ending up too exhausted to do anything else but nap! Every ten days, I put my hair in four large plaits then one plait at a time, I no poo with Aubrey's Honeysuckle conditioner, spray on some Revitalizing Leave-In Conditioner by Jane Carter Solutions, then I drench my hair in a mixture of coconut & avocado oil, and seal it with Shea Butter. Every month to six weeks, I do an Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo by Morrocco Method Int'l to clarify my hair and rid it of product build up.

Lupita Nyong'o- 'I really enjoy doing my friends' hair...'

I received an email from a Vogue editor this morning about an amazing short video starring Oscar Award Winner, Lupita Nyong'o, and I just had to share with y'all! So how 'bout, Lupita loves braiding hair! She learned to braid, twist and create bantu knots from an aunt in Kenya after being disappointed by the local braiding situation in NYC back in undergrad.  Watch as she braids her girlfriends' hair and chats about how it almost became a side hustle!

On the Couch with Karyn Parsons- Updates and a Rally Cry

Tell us about the hair situation. Updates!
I'm definitely far more educated, though that doesn't always translate into practice.  I'm on the run so much it seems, that I don't have the time that I dream about to take my time deep-conditioning every other day for an hour at a time, or twisting every night. When I do these things, I'm instantly gratified. I always see a difference. Still, I've learned about sealing in moisture and have been doing that more, as well as using coconut oil on my hair, which it loves.  I still hit the blowdryer (diffuser) too much, and too HOT :(.  Rushing too much. Once I leave the city for a few weeks (soon!) with my family and don't have to worry so much about meetings, I'll be pampering my hair and hopefully, making some good habits.

Girl Code's Nicole Byer- Exclusive Natural Hair Interview

After last weeks' post, I caught up with MTV's Nicole Byer to chat about her hair story and advice for women thinking of making the transition.  She is just as sweet and HILARIOUS as she is on TV.  Enjoy!

CN: How long have you been natural?
NB: I've been natural on and off since 2008 and have Big Chopped 4 times. Well, wait, what is the definition of a Big Chop?

For some reason there's a lot of debate in the space about that.  But in my opinion, it's when you chop off a significant amount of hair, relaxed or not. 
So yeah, I Big Chopped 4 times.  I had a natural mohawk with shaved sides for a while and then wore the Rihanna style by adding weave to the middle.  After I got tired of that, I shaved off the middle.  When that grew out a little, I bleached my natural hair 4 times in one night because I wanted it white.  Ruin. My hair fell out and I big chopped again.  Now it's natural but I only wear it out in the summer when it's hot. During the year I keep it in a protective style- wigs or weaves.  I wear lace front closures (sewn in) with my hair braided down underneath.

Bre Scullark- "My Hair Is Not a Trend."

Before it was trendy, before it became this “new phenomenon” it was and still is, who I am. My natural hair is so much more than a breakthrough in chemically processed and damaged hair. My natural hair is so much more than just a liberating experience from the monotony of long body wave weaves and sleek flat ironed hair. My natural hair is a composition of my life’s journey on redefining the value of spiritual beauty.
