More pics from the set of Jennifer Hudson’s new song “Where You At“!
Here’s a first listen of Jennifer Hudson’s new song “Where You At“!
The ballad, written by R. Kelly and produced by Harvey Mason Jr., is off the 29-year-old singer’s upcoming sophomore album I Remember Me, out March 22.
“This song to me is like what I always wanted to do vocally. As an aspiring writer, just the subject of it means so much to me. It’s simple and it’s something we say every day,” Jennifer shared.

Protective styles make it possible to prevent breakage since your hair may be breaking off faster than it grows. Protective styles keep your ends "protected." It doesn't matter which way you wear your hair, just as long as your ends are put away. Keeping the ends of your hair put up and out of sight protects the ends as well as retains moisture. My hair seems to grow faster in protective hair styles.
I love wigs, I usually buy the long layered styles...Here lately the shorter wigs are more fun!! Straight, curly, wavy, asymmetrical or whatever...I love em' all!
My hair is safe and secure in LOOSE cornrows, under a satin wave cap.
I have no idea what these wigs are called or what brand. I have a bad habit of pop'n tags and tossin' them in the trash before reading it. Womp. LOL!
Tryin' to act Sessy! LOL!
Winter months tend to be harsh on my hair so I usually wear protective styles when its cold.
This wig is my least favorite. Its asymmetrical like the others but because its new the curls were too tight...I'm going to try to manipulate the curls to look more free flowing and not so "wiggy". I don't like wearing "wiggy" looking 5wigs...it shouldn't look like you are wearing a wig at first glance.

The hair strand is immediately nourished providing hydration and elasticity. With the immediate repair of the outer hair sheath, each hair strand lies flat and combined with other strands reducing frizziness and tangle.
The application of argan oil is very simple. After washing your hair you apply the oil and massage the oil through your hair using your fingers. A little oil does go a long way so when applying the oil try to judge the least amount required to cover each hair strand.

Believe it or not, this stylish handbag is made from hundreds of recycled aluminum pull-tabs. Yes, those tiny tabs we throw away without giving them a second glance after opening a can. Luckily, San Francisco-based company Escama Studio and various Brazilian crafts cooperatives have been working together since 2004 to create great fashion accessories from them. And their approach is personal: Each fashion piece comes with a tag bearing the signature of the person who made it. Customers can then click on that person’s profile on the company’s website to find out more about the artist. I love it!
Fashion made from recycled cassette tape string
These Tea Cup Bangles first surfaced on Twitter recently and demanded to be shared. They are made from real tea cups, adapted by designer Abigail MaryRose Clark.
Did you know??
I blogged about these bangles a WHILE ago...they are made from recycled magazines. So fly! Check the archives for this post.
The Denim Kimono was created using recycled denim jackets and jeans.

Gary Harvey is the former Creative Director of Levi Strauss and Dockers Europe designer for Levi's. He began designing his environmentally friendly dresses during a freelance fashion campaign. He needed something dramatic for a shoot so he took 42 pairs of Levi's 501's and made them into a dress. He has continued designing eco-fashion since.
He doesn't just recycle clothing to make his innovative designs. This dress was made with cans, bottle tops and cardboard boxes.

It looked really gookey...the smell wasn't as overwhelming as I imagined...
Coated each strand with the mixture, from root to tip...
BEFORE::: Over processed, split ends, damaged hair.... My hair is relaxed in these photos. (pics taken approx. 3 years ago)

A few months after the Henna I put a Cherry Cola rinse on my hair. I posted this pic to show that you can color your hair after using henna,...

Deep Conditioned/Hot Oil Treatment..
Detangled and Air-Dryed
After I pressed my hair I braided two semi-loose plaits on each side.. I used satin covered sponge rollers to curl the ends..
Straightened my hair on low-heat... I was going to press my hair from the heat of the stove but chickened-out, I pressed my hair with a plug-in pressing comb on Med/Low.
After my hot shower my hair shrunk and I lost some of the sheen/silky look...
