I’ve learned a lot of new words and phrases since becoming a writer for this site. The most intriguing by far is “hair crush”.
I think I have a hair crush on Erykah Badu… when she had that super big fro. Was that all really her hair? It was so big and soft that I wanted to live in it like an Afro hermit crab. And I’d only come out to eat scraps of food.
So who do you have a hair crush on?
Corinne Bailey Rae and Zoe Soul!
I would have to say Corinne Bailey Rae as well. Along with Yaya Decosta (although after seeing the move "In Time" she may have converted to the creamy crack<—-say it isnt so Yaya!
Diana Ross [[sighs]]
I just got a new hair cruch after reading the interview with Beyoncés dancer! Her hair is gorgeous. I do also really like Corinne Bailey Raes hair, HairCrush, Zhara and so many other, there are so many with beautiful hair!! 🙂
Hair crushes are: Naptural85, Nikkimae2003 on youtube; CurlyNikki, Hairscapades, Corrine Bailey Rae.
I would say "Richeau" aka empressri on youtube whose hair is gorgeous. Titled Conair Infiniti You Curl Wand Review, and look at all of her natural long hair.

Hate to burst your hair bubble, but Badu's fro is a wig. When I saw her live in LA a few years back, she had a very climatic moment on stage where she tore the fro wig off, exposing her stocking capped-head lol. It was a great moment. She totally rocks that fro wig though! 🙂
