Time to pop my “Suave” Cherry: Almond & Shea Butter Shampoo/Conditioner

I know I know! It’s been awhile since I’ve done a hair product review, so since I have an interview this weekend and I have to look fly, I’ve decided to wash my hair this weekend using Suave products.  It will be my first time trying it, I picked up the 2 for 1 pack of Suave Professionals Almond and Shea Butter Shampoo and Conditioner for a ridiculous cheap price of $3.99 from target so you KNOW I have to give it a shot. I’ve seen a lot of great reviews about it but if my hair falls out you guys are my witness. . . . . . .

Check back next week for the full review!

Afro Chic’s Friday Jam: Netta Brielle x In$an3

Check out “In$an3” by Netta Brielle. This Bay Area bred has been on my radar for awhile thanks to Rawe Mag for putting me on last summer when I returned home.  Ladies, add this one to your playlist cause it’s a perfect kick-off to summer, (although it looks ugly outside and I’m fighting a horrible cold) it really got my Friday going. Give it a listen!

Kev Choice x Are You Impressed (Video)

Check out the visual for the second single “Are You Impressed” by Oakland’s own Kevin Choice.  I’ve seen him and his perform a few times and have become an instant fan. He’s a talented artist who creates great music that any one can vibe to.  A few months back I featured The Power of Choice, his latest work which is like a breathe of fresh air when it comes up on my itunes.  Produced by Aagee and directed by Samm Styles and Brian Storm with smooth background vocals from J Myers.  Lot’s of Bay Area love!

Make sure you follow him on twitter because he might be in a city near you 🙂

Jill Scott x So In Love ft. Anthony Hamilton (Video)

Check out Jill Scott’s latest video for “So In love” featuring Anthony Hamilton.  This song is the first single off her upcoming album Light of the Sun which I’m dying to get a copy of so my life will be complete.  This duo is so sweet and romantic, makes wish I could fall in love. Jill Scott looking amazing as always and I’m starting to think she’s my celebrity twin (Don’t judge me) lol. . .

Erkyah Badu x Out My Mind Just in Time (Visual)

Creative Control does it again.  Check out the visual for one of my favorite songs “Out of My Mind Just in Time” by Erkyah Badu.  I love the simplicity of the video, because they lyrics and concept are FAR from it. I think I will go do some twirling and dancing in my room now. . .tooshaay. lol

Documenatry: Dark Girls (Preview)

Check out this preview for a documentary called “Dark Girls”.  Black women have been fighting this issue since slavery and it always makes me wonder when we ever get over this self hate.  I appreciate my upbringing and the value of the color of my skin and I always make sure to educate other girls fighting their racial complexion.  I could really go on and on about how I feel about the intra-racial discrimination and the bias and issues we have in the black culture but I’m sure just by watching these clips you will get a good sense of what this documentary is trying to portray. After watching, please feel free to share your thoughts and feelings in the comment box.

Look out for “Dark Girls” to be released this fall/winter of 2011.
