I was told by a friend that braids were juvenile. I’ve been told by men, “uhm…don’t do your hair like that with dem braids.” But I do it anyway and will continue to do. I have also received many compliments on my braids from men & women. Braids are a beautiful expression of my heritage as an African American woman. Plus they are super easy & low maintenance. Anywho, I see it’s summer and I want to look like royalty so I was looking for styles and found my sisters…bangin w/braids! Check out Jada Pinkette, Angela Basset, Alicia Keys, Jill Scott, Goapele and Solange!

To keep my braids from being tight and itching I use a Braid Sheen Spray by Kings & Queens when I take them out, I use the Comb-Out you’ll know why when you get some, get your braids and start bangin!

 

Donna’s Do

Kings and Queens pays tribute to the dynamic diva Donna Summers.  Remembering her radiant stage presence and funky fros. Donna Summer was the Queen of Disco in the 1970s a dynamic combo of American soul and European based music. Summer’s music started in Munich, Germany ,produced by Hair and Porgy & Bess productions. In Germany, she created the famous “Love to Love You Baby” which brought her worldwide fame. Did you know, Donna Summer was the first female (not just African American but first female) artist to have back-to-back multi-platinum double albums and the first female artist to incorporate synthesizers as well as the first artist to create an extended play song?

Mother’s Mane – 5 Steps To Stronger Hair

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Your hair is not always the world’s point of focus, but as a woman and a mother if my hair is not managed my life somehow feels out of control. As an African American woman I often focus on the look and not the condition. I know I am not the only one. Hello? Well after speaking with a couple of stylist and paying attention to the way they treat my hair, I have five simple hair enhancements that I’d like to share.

  1. Water is important, what you put in the body does show on the outside. So along with drinking lots of water I also take Omega 3 (fresh water fish oils) wish actually helps with my dry scalp.
  2. Straightening my hair is always damaging, but deep conditioning helps. I sit with conditioner in my hair under the dryer rinse and then use a leave in.
  3. No heat is how you beat the breakage. I mean the less the better. Blow drying with high temps is a no-no. If you want to use a dryer to dry, I suggest investing in the hairdryers you can sit under. They are not easy to find, but I got mine on clearance for under $40. I sit in my room, read a book and dry my hair.
  4. Cover-up. There are pillow cases made of silk that can help with the bed head syndrome but wrapping your hair at night with a non-cotton based scarf can also be extremely helpful.
  5. When in doubt – Ask!!! Talk to people and stylist that don’t mind sharing. Give a compliment and then get to the questions. How do you… and how do I?

Yellow Light Means There Is A Stop Coming!

There usually becomes a crisis point before a lot of us are willing to change. For example, sometimes it takes a heart attack for a person to start eating right. But you don’t have to wait for your crisis point. You can just bite the bullet and say, “That’s it. I’m done with this.”

No Gender – Aloud! (For Kings & Queens)

No Gender – Aloud! (For Kings & Queens)

 

A musical instrument has no respect of person, but wants to be played. So pick up the instrument of your life and “own it and make it personal.” Eloquently put by Christine Kamau, the composer and trumpet player confirms how an instrument “can be played by anyone who is attracted to it.”

Kings & Queens – COMBO #3 – DRINK INCLUDED

You like all things, seek the joys in life and look for happiness in physical beauties. Flowers and most living things use elements such as light, soil(food) and water which creates beauty and the necessary dosage of  love so that the rose has the will to make the most of any season (bloomed or un-bloomed). Quenching all thirst and fulfilling all needs.

Unlike the flowers and the trees our needs  cannot  be determined  by our appearance with no beautiful orange skin, purple hands nor green stems. Our body which calls for water, our souls which call for love are covered with clothes, make-up, and hair to provide an aesthetic appeal and mask our necessities.

We spend millions on make-up, clothes, and cars and try to cut our needs out of material things.  We sit in hair salons and barber shops for hours turning our crowns into glory, using our hair styles like the boldness of the flowers petal, the trees’ limbs, and the birds’ songs. We along with all things in nature are endowed with this creative urge to display. Even the earth cries out with gratitude once rain hits the paved streets and everything wet shines clean and new.  But unlike the tree or the street we are living things with souls. The soul has no desire to be painted or masked, not trying to shine but survive –  it must be fed. And no, the status of your soul is not determined by your new shoe or dress but calculated according to how you move your being in it.

For instance a woman with a fresh hair-do, fly shoes and the best dress with a solid core may do pirouettes of joy instead of just walking through her days. Her leaps through life confirm the soul is fed and the shell is beautiful. And others with hearts full of weeds still growing from past and even current events deceive the eye and deprive the soul only reveal glimpses and shadows of monetary happiness smothered with routine strides to make it to the morrow – while the soul is dying of thirst.

Because, it is not just the water that makes the flower beautiful, not just the hair, the clothes nor the talent alone that creates the character of a beautiful person. But very specific  elements, the perfect mixture of earth, water and Son.
