Kylie Finally Confesses About Her “Lip Pout”- Like We Didn’t Know The Truth Already

http://m.eonline.com/shows/kardashians/news/654041/kylie-jenner-comes-clean-about-her-super-plump-pout-i-have-temporary-lip-fillers-see-her-confession -Via Eonline.com 

You know It’s crazy to me how African Americans use to get mocked for our melanin, body curves, nice voluptuous butt and fuller lips by other races. And now we see the next girl down the street and celebrities doing extreme measures to achieve the same looks we get made fun off. 

People are tanning or sun-bathing so much just to get a darker skin tone & don’t get me started on those butt injections that ladies get, making their butt perky and round but have two skinny legs attached to it *sigh.*

Kylie Jenner for example, finally admits to having temporary fillers to achieve the fuller lips (Link attached above).  Fans of hers have tried getting those plump lips by participating in the Kylie Jenner Challenge, which is where you suck in the air from a shot glass and sometimes has resulted in some damages (DO NOT TRY THIS).

Can you imagine all the diseases or body disporportions that can result from these temporary dangerous decisions of body manipulation. 

Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with getting a little nip or tuck here and there, but I believe it should be for medical purposes only. Nothing seems natural anymore. 

Like J. Cole would say: “Love Yourself or Nobody Will.”

We have to teach our young ones to love themselves, appreciate what God has created and how they shouldn’t be easily influenced by what they see on the media.  Lord help us all!

True or False? Study Shows Women With Natural Hair Have Low Self Esteem

This  was an article I read, comment your opinions below…

According to research by cosmetic company Bountiful Hair, women with natural hair have lower self-esteem than women with treated hair.

According to BlackHair.com, natural hair is “hair whose texture hasn’t been altered by chemical straighteners, including relaxers and texturizers.”

The most common natural hairstyle is an afro, which many black women consider an undesirable look. The hair is many times matted and coarse, and is not considered appropriate for a business environment. Many employers consider the look untidy, and ban individuals from wearing this style.

According to the study by Bountiful Hair, natural hair being viewed as a messy look is causing many women, who wear their hair in that manner, to feel inadequate and less desirable as their counterparts. Those feelings of inadequacy causes women with natural hair to lash out at women with treated or straightened hair, and in turn lowers their self-esteem.

Of the 3,000 women who participated in the study, 2,500 said they did not feel as pretty as women with straightened hair. Pilar Ciara Jones, who says she participated in the study, stated, “some days I just don’t know what to do with these naps — and on those days I just avoid the mirror altogether.”

“I try to tell myself that wearing my hair natural is all about empowerment and expressing natural beauty, but there were times when I just did not feel pretty,” Jones continued. “When you continuously break combs because your hair is so nappy, and you use everything  in your refrigerator to try to tame that mane, and you still have hair so rough you could polish rocks, you begin to reevaluate your choices.”

“At one point I was using a gallon of milk and a dozen eggs on my hair every day to try to soften it. That’s when I knew it was time to make a change. I got a relaxer and a Brazilian weave down to my butt, and I have never felt prettier,” Jones stated.

Bountiful Hair says the feelings by Jones are common among women with natural hair.

Natural Hair, Does It Appeal To Your Man!!?

I’m not sure if you know or remember, but I’ve gradually transitioned into #TeamNatural , and I’ve been natural for a year and a half now. On my part, it was an easy decision to make because I was in college and I didn’t allow anyone to perm my hair besides my mother. As time went on, not applying that hair crack to my hair, I didn’t realize I was slowly becoming natural.

After I made my decision to fully convert, my friends (the Nigerian ones) were like, “girl are you sure, because I don’t think your man would want to see that tough hair struggle!” They went on and on about how if their men saw them with that Stage 1 natural hair, he would probably not find them attractive without the weave. (This was a battle conversation)

For a while I struggled to figure out how to tame all this new hair growth, but as time progressed I began to fully embrace this new journey, thanks to blogs and YouTube videos. I mean I was in the mirror snip snip here, snip snip there just having fun removing those stringy permed ends.

As I embraced my new look and accepted this evolving me, I didn’t care what permed-haired people thought, they could keep their stringy opinions to themselves.

I’m stubborn, so I actually rocked my natural on Valentine’s Day. In my mind thinking like “yea he better not say something crazy, or he’s getting kicked to the curb.” (LOL) However, my boyfriend David saw me for the first time without my Brazilian wavy weave and he smiled and said that I looked Beautiful and he actually preferred this.

The point is, when you embrace and accept who you are, no one can knock you down.
