As the US race debate crashes head first into the issue of black women wearing blonde hair and/or weaves, fuelled by Whoopi’s comments on a recent episode of The View ( it’s time to throw in my two pennies’ worth.

If you are a black girl or woman who:-

  • loves and uses hair extensions, has any ideas for new hair extension and hair care products, or is really creative when it comes to hair styling;

I seem to have stumbled upon a hotly debated topic that divides women everywhere!  Who would have guessed that in addition to having  your bridesmaids wear the same gowns, that having them uniformly groomed (hair style, make up, jewellery and other accessories) instead...

Actually, what I really want to ask is ‘is there no romance if you can’t run your fingers through her hair?’ but that’s not quite as catchy, so apologies for grabbing your attention under false pretences!  But now that you are here, please do indulge me by letting me k...

I took a HUGE plunge in bringing my invention to market. Thanks to phenomenol support from family and friends, and exhausting amount of hard work and tons of determination, I got there in 2004 and the SimiWeave™ was an instant success. The thanks, praises, compliments,...

Just seen Chris Rock’s ‘Good Hair’ film, and it’s funny and a ‘must see’! Kudos to him for daring to publicly explore one of the most contentious issues amongst black men and women! Pity he didn’t dissect in detail the disgraceful and tired old notion that ‘good hair’...
