There a lot of hair communities on LJ, but only a few devoted black hair and of those few, the main focus is on natural styles (dreadlocks, twists, etc.), but none for relaxed/straight styles. Hopefully this will become a resource for ethnic hair care with discussion and the exchange of different ideas & advice.
Please feel free to post questions, tips, product reviews, and especially pictures! Discussion of other aspects of ethnic beauty (cosmetics, skin care, etc.) is also allowed and encouraged.
01. Check the memories before posting (I know the memories aren't organized now but this will be a rule when they are).
02. Please tag your entries when posting. If you're unfamilliar with tags, read this. Try to keep tags short & sweet, i.e. "braids," "relaxer question," "product review," etc.
03. Please be respectful. This should be a given. Try to keep black_hair_etc a drama-free zone. Criticism/civil disagreements are to be expected [if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen] but personal attacks [i.e. insults on character, etc.] will not be tolerated.
