hair

Hello!

My name is Jennifer J. This is my blog, in which I will document my passion for all things pretty such as fashion, beauty & photography. I am a full time student at the University of Ottawa, majoring in Biochemistry (yep, I had to pick the hardest of all the sciences!). As stated earlier, this will be my bubble to express my interests and feelings. I also have a YouTube page, which I think you should check out :0

Oh and did I mention I have a “thing” for natural hair? 🙂

  2. Hi Jennifer;

    OMG!I’m amazed
    I didn’t know you had a youtube channel and a blog!
    i wanted to create a blog too not one talking about natural hair
    but about other stuff that i’d like to share but i’m such a WIMP!lollll
    You are courageous!!!! Keep up the good work.
    I just find out.I saw your comment on Tpindell channel.
    rotfllll….that’s so funny.
    I thought you had dreadlocks when i saw you picture.
    I am a natural too.I thought only Francia and i were naturals.I’m so glad to know
    that there are other haitian women in the natural hair community!
    Nice growth!
    I’m happy for you!Thumbs up!
    So how long have you been natural????
    Did you do the BC or transition?
    I myself did the big chop in september 2010.
    your yahoo email address doesn’t work?

    • Hey girl,
      wow its been so long! Yes, I have a youtube channel and a blog now. I’ve had the channel for a year a half now, but the blog is fairly new. If you are thinking of starting a blog, just GO FOR IT! Really, its a good way to vent and just talk about w.e interest you. So DO IT, lol i’ll follow 😀
      I don’t have dreadlocks YET. I have thought about it though. I knew Francia and Beaugardine are natural but I didn’t know about you. It is good to see Haitian women embracing their hair. I am sure you know how Haitians are. My mom still gives me weird looks, like I’ve lost my mind lol.
      I’ve actually always been natural but I had really BAD heat damage and never really wore my hair out. I gradually started to cut my dead ends and here I am, 2 years later. I sorta wished i big chopped though. I just always to know how it felt lol
      i don’t use the yahoo email anymore but you can find me here on the blog, my youtube channel or at jemy1415@hotmail.com
      xo

      • Thx! My mother really hates it too.When i did the BC everyday she would say that i look ugly and she’d give the weird look too.Now she thinks i won’t find a man because of my hair.lolll…

        • LMAOO yeah!!! wow its like they are all alike! my cousin is going though the same thing. Now that my hair has grown a lot, my mom has relaxed a little. She actually see how much healthier it is but when I do twists and stuff, she is like ” eyyy you’re going to leave the house like THIS?” * Dirty look*. lol

          • Ok, I definitely soupprt people who wear their hair natural. I tried to wear it natural but I have a lot of hair and the only way I could wear it and have it look nice is if I cut it (my beautician told me this) but I love my hair so I could never do it. Plus, it’s a lot of work since my hair is really thick and it’s long My mom wears her hair natural and it’s beautiful and looks amazing on her. But I hate when people say to wear it any other way but natural is self-hating and it’s unnatural. So are white people who bleach their hair and curl it or straighten it everyday self-hating ? Or the term only apply to girls who wear weaves or perm their hair?i meant to say, it’s, well, unnatural Isn’t it unnatural for white girls to alter the look of their hair, too?White girls wear weaves too what do you call those clip-on things? That’s not real hair.A lot of white actresses wear weaves too!WINTER BLOSSOM you are the same girl who said that you don’t like when black women wear weaves because it’s unnatural so my question for you is why do you care about how black women wear their hair?yeah sunshine same here!

    • From relaxed to nauratl. 1- No braids. Braids will break off the already weakened hair from the perm. Braids cause break off of new growth, from, pulling stress, and if extensions, weight. 2-Break out of our usual hair stores. Mall stores for hair products are catching on, and are making great products, JOICO, in a light brown bottle, makes sham,cond, serums to restore relaxed/processed hair. Using these items, you can move into nauratl comfortably, as your new growth hair will improve. Increases curly/waviness/softness instead of kinky/dry/nappy. Hope this helps! Need more advice send me a message! Glad to help!

    • It’s personal pfcnereree, really.Some guys LOVE the natural look, and other guys prefer the fake everything.How much you let this concern you really depends on how interested you are in having a guy that is attracted to you for how you look as compared to someone that wants you to look like every other bleach blonde, makeup covered thing that walks around in a miniskirt.Someone that needs for you to look a certain way to please them usually needs you to act a certain way, as well. If you’re okay with parading around as trophy wife’ then more power to you. I prefer au natural.

    • I love the look/texture of healthy nurtaal hair and I understand that nurtaal is always best. However, my hair is transitioning from relaxed hair to nurtaal hair so my nurtaal hair is very little. So the easiest thing I can do is relax it and add nice clip ins to make my hair look nicer/curl it etc and I do look prettier with it. So should I keep my hair transitioning to nurtaal or just relax it?

    I have no idea why you look sooooooo familiar. I’m from Haiti as well, went to ISC, then moved to fl. lol but every time I see your page, It feels like i’ve seen you before. Maybe I haven’t but IDK. LOL.
    Any-who, love seeing haitians doing something other than nursing or engineering. lol

    • Hey Melissa!
      Your last name sounds very familiar. I went to St. Francois D’Assise and then moved to Florida as well. Our stories are so similar. I am now in Canada though so maybe we did bump into each other in Fl? xx
