Took out my Killmonger dreads last night.

#endofanera 😭

Going for an all natural Gambino type fro now, but my shit is kind of fucked. Gonna wash it and see where to go from there.

Did you just get tired of them? I've been wanting that style for the longest but couldn't do it because of work.

I just felt like trying something a little different and more natural to show off my hair texture.

I can always get my sister to retwist them if I want them in again. I like the look.

Ah ok. I styled my hair curls a couple times to be like Killmonger's dreads but there is no way for me to do the whole style right now. I'm thinking about doing twists but I'm afraid of the maintenance with those.

Dawg you didnt see how he's on that I don't date Black women hairline meme?

My problem was the maintenance, I am lazy and want to be able to just wake up and apply either shea, argan oil, or my coconut leave in conditioner on days that I don't have to shampoo and hit the road. Deads are weird, at least for my hair, no matter what I did my shit would build up and get dirty fast. My hair doesn't retain moisture all that well and conditioning with dreads is a bitch.

I loved the look though and I grow a nice beard to go with it but I don't think I can rock it that long term anymore. After undoing it though I have something of a twist out fro lol. It looks nice but I'm still wondering if I should cut it a bit short. It looks like this but far more curly and a bit shorter.

Hair care is such a pain in the ass.
Have to spritz my hair with water and then lather oil in in twice a day and sleep with a satin cap.
My hair is super nappy and coils tightly and collects particles so I can't use shea butter (worked the best as far as moisture)

Just stumbled upon this in my Youtube recs. I didn't realize Marlon Brando was so woke. In was a 1973 interview where he talks about his refusal to accept his oscar because of the treatment of American Indians in films and spoke of the negative effects of the Hollywood's portrayal of non-white people in film

"You're ruining our fantasy with a little intrusion of reality "

And the Oscar ceremony in mentioned

Someone just introduced me to the hair sponge.
It has changed my life. I have super nappy hair and someone convinced me to try one.
Breh, the sponge is one of the greatest inventions ever. Great for introducing a new style to your hair and build some interesting looks.

Black hair is beautiful.

I don't know it's fucking weird. I just started a new Instagram account on my new phone and it's suggesting me people to follow I know in real life and they're not even in my contacts. I figure maybe it's picking up my Facebook, but I have never logged into it from my phone.

That still doesn't really explain it to me since I never logged into my Facebook with this phone nor did I use the same email and I'm getting people that aren't even my Facebook friends like random people I remember seeing at college.
I mean if you've been in the same area as them they probably link you based on GPS data.

Me: school is gonna have me busy

Also me: let me start RPGs and say I'll be in this thread a lot.
I can see why people are done with Era.
Sup fam? One thing that tripped me out was when I got banned for saying I didn't want so random black character in Smash but a fully fleshed out one. I maaaay have also said it was so white people could feel better about themselves but still.

Anyway, sup wit it folks?

Well, my girlfriend just came out to me that she's a stripper. Kind of figured that she was due to some of the early signs in our relationship. And you know, it really doesn't bother me at all.

I feel ya. Maintenance is a major factor in some styles I've been looking at.

If pornstars are able to have a healthy relationship with their spouses, I don't see why you can't. Wishing you the best, though.

Where X marks the spot.
Mornin' twisted fire starters.

What's on your mind?

What happened ?

I was musing on a bunch of micro-aggressions I saw around the place. Nothing out of the ordinary for minorities, it's just that the shit don't stop.
And so many of us bounced the fuck out because it's tiring.

As a side gig or her main one? Did you ever ask what she did before?

Friends of friends in your contacts, or your contacts Facebook friends, there are a number of ways it can build a graph of people you potentially know. It all comes down to IG is owned by FB
