Kim Wayans is Back On the Couch , Talking #Reckless

#HerArmsTho

The homie, Kim Wayans, is back on the couch, y'all! This amazing talented writer, actress, comedian and producer also penned the foreword to my book, 'Better Than Good Hair', and I'm proud to call her a friend.  Check out the updates to her hair story and learn about her latest TV show, Reckless, which airs on Sunday nights at 9pm.  #TuneInTho

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.

Lupita Nyong'o- "There is no shame in Black beauty."



On Thursday night, the stunning actress was honored at Essence’s 7th Annual Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon in Hollywood, where she delivered a powerful speech on her quest to accept the skin she was born in. Like most young children growing up, her perception of beauty came from what she saw celebrated on her television screen, and it wasn’t until she saw a model that looked like her, walking the runways that she began to embrace her beauty. She also revealed that she spent years praying that she would wake up a lighter complexion, but she learned over time that beauty is so much more than the external. Beauty is compassion for yourself, and those around you. You can’t just consume it, it’s something you have to be.
