Die Grundrechtepartei ke4mpft keinen Kampf gegen etwas, snredon ffcr etwas, ne4mlich die Grundrechte. Die Lf6sung ist einfach wie kompliziert: Sobald es genfcgend Menschen gibt, welche an der politischen Willensbildung aktiv mitarbeiten wollen, werden sich die Verhe4ltnisse e4ndern. Das, was Sie als deren Macht bezeichnen, ist nicht nur das Ergebnis deren Machtwillens, snredon auch und vor allem das Ergebnis der scheinbaren Ohnmacht derer, welche von denen regiert werden. Auch hier die Lf6sung: Bildung und die aktive Vere4nderung der Umste4nde.

Hi

Have you tried castor oil on your bald spots? castor oil is good for thickness and growth.

This is my hair from July 24-November 2, you can check out my inexpensive (99 cent store lover here!) and easy regimen video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bw5JIvGZo1k

Hi Kuluwa, 28 is very young so no, that should NOT be a barrier. The tips on this site should help you but basically: drink LOTS of water, moisturize your hair, comb it GENTLY, and do NOT PULL or BRAID tightly. Find an accomplished braider who does not have to pull to make a neat style. It sounds like you have traction alopecia, which means hairloss from pulling. Do not do overly tight braided styles. Wash your scalp only when it’s dirty. I wash w/ black soap, you know the stuff that grandmas use! 🙂 Moisturize w/water and seal it… Read more »

These ladies are all GORGEOUS! It cracks me up that so many black men hate on our natural hair when there are beauties like this walking around everywhere. Whoever said that ladies need to have light skin, and straighter hair to be beautiful is a damn fool. FAB-U-LOUS, ladies. Fierce! (end mini-rant).

Hi Kuluwa,

I really can’t give solid advice without seeing your hair. Why don’t you send a picture to me as well as your current regimen and let me take a look. My email: chyscurlz(at)gmail(dot)com.

I’m Nigerian as well and even though I don’t live there now, I have an idea of things available on the ground and we can start working on getting you a fabulous (not stubborn) head of hair.

Love the shoes the lovely lady (in pink & mint green- page 3) is wearing! omg I can’t stop looking at these lovely ladies’ hair styles AND fashion styles!

Kinda inspires me be patient with my hair and learn how to see it in a different light. I keep going back and forth between locs and loose natural hair — without really giving my hair a chance to show off/be free, lol.

schuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuppppppppppppssssssssss. WTH! How is it I keep missing these things? I swear I signed up to to receive their events since the last one that was posted on here, I think that was way back in May. Why wasn’t it posted on the BGLH nyc pg on the blog? Here I went to a small meet up (nice meeting you ladies), but there was a bigger one???? WTH. I’m vex, and still loving the pics.…but I’m still vex.
