I always took extreme pride in my natural hair —no matter if it was short or long—because there was never anything to be ashamed of. I never thought I could make natural hair videos because there were always so many other people making them. But with the natural hair community in the state is today, —co-opted and flooding with more paid partnerships and sponsored videos than simple, useful and affordable hair care routines common people can use — I thought it was about time I put my two cents in; especially as someone who’s been natural my whole life; has helped multiple people grow their hair long, thick and healthy; and has grown their hair waist-length for the second time in my life.
Watch the latest video I uploaded on the Si Slays YouTube channel for several things I stopped doing to grow my hair waist-length (for the second time, lol) and also watch the video I uploaded last week for everything you need to know to grow your hair waist-length, healthy and thick. (CLICK THE THUMBNAILS IN THIS POST TO WATCH THE VIDEOS)
Stay tuned on justforblackgirls.com and the Si Slays YouTube channel for more as I am LOADED with actually easy, affordable and effective info on how to style, take care of and grow 4C natural hair. Hopefully I can help you to take pride in your crown — no matter if it’s short or long. See ya there😉😘💅🏾

Hey Lovelies, a Black Girl Self-Care Series has made its way to JFBG! Azé and I have curated a series of content that centers caring for ourselves as Black Womxn. From natural hair videos to skin care routines and Black Girl-centered affirmation meditations, we are bringing to you simple, affordable and accessible physical and mental health routines to aid you in your journey to Radical Self-Love. We already began posting for this series with the most recent natural hair video on the Si Slays YouTube Channel —linked in bio—, so check that out to see the super simple and affordable 4c natural hair care routine that grew my hair waist-length. And of course you can access that same routine via JFBG because you know I wrote a blog post about it for y’all!
We’re super excited to bring all this material to you this Women’s History Month because self-preservation IS an act of political warfare and is, at least to us, the most radical act of resistance black people, and especially black womxn, can practice in a world that’s dedicated to trying to harm and dehumanize us. Let’s talk and DO self-care centered on us embracing our existences as black womxn as both an act of Radical Resistance and an act of Radical Self-Love. Follow me (xo1_sieraa) and Azé (mynamesaze) on Instagram and subscribe to the YouTube Channel so you don’t miss anything we’ll be sharing in this series.💞
*I am in alignment with my highest, most positive good.
I am provided with everything I need in divine right time.
I am grounded and centered in my being and purpose.
I am joyous and grateful for all of the things I get to do in a day.
I am in love with who I am, what I do and how I do it.
Beauty, power, love, wisdom and courage radiates out of all parts of my being.
I see my myself as I truly am: a child of God; a beam of light; a manifestation of divine love; a Friend of God.
This guided affirmation meditation is available on our Patreon, patreon.com/itsinthestars. If you become a patron, you will not only receive access to all of our exclusive guided affirmation meditations, blog posts and poetry performances, but you will also be supporting our direct mutual aid project that supports black womxn who are struggling with their mental health and need financial assistance for bills and other needs. Thank you in advance for your support.
So...I really liked End of the Road. But let's be honest...who's actually doin that? I'm not a spoiler-type of person, so I'm not going to spoil anything. But boy was I laughing throughout the entirety of that film. Not a condescending laugh, but a "you've got to be kidding me" laugh. It's just hilarious. The entire cast did amazing playing their roles, and the story line was fast-paced and hit all the boxes for what I consider a really great action movie. Everything was totally believable: the family dynamics, why they were moving, and of course the interactions they had with racists in that part of the country...but how they got involved in the situation they were dealing with throughout the movie????😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭
Let me know y'all thoughts.
