"Yellow fever is when the only prerequisite for me to become your potential partner is the colour of my skin. That’s cheap. That’s offensive. You’re an asshole, go away." (x)
If Linkin Park plays in the forest and no one is around to hear it, in the end, does it even matter?
And I’m done.
Honestly there’s a really gross trend I notice with media directed towards women and young girls as soon as it becomes popular. Not just Sailor Moon. Critics (a lot of which are men, save for a few women) try to pick them apart and tell us how it isn’t feminist or powerful,…
Since I’ve been up on here I’ve gotten a few questions about the stuff I use on my hair or things I can suggest for people with the same hair type as me. I’ve probably technically been natural for 5 years but I still occasionally wear wigs sometimes. Anyway. Here goes the short list of things I’ve been using on my hair and my process. It’s not too complicated.
My hair texture: 4c front and sides. 3c in the back
Shampoo and Conditoner:
Carol’s Daughter Monoi
I’m on auto ship with HSN because I forget to buy things and am lazy.
Moisture/ Hair grease:
Qhemet Biologics Amla and Olive Heavy Cream
Been using this for about a year and I seriously get antsy when I start to run low on it. You have to use it with an oil of some sort or it will sit on your hair. I use Tui oil (Recently discontinued by Carol’s Daughter but it’s other places online. Smells amazing if you like perfumey shit. )
Pre Poo Routine: A table spoon of Olive oil combined with one part Rosemary oil and one part Jamaican Black Castor oil. I usually put this in my hair and sit with a plastic bag on my head for an hour or sleep with it on overnight.(Heated in the same cup or bowl)
Then I wash my hair and finish it with my Tui oil and hair grease. That’s pretty much everything. I do try to fingercomb my hair in the shower but for the most part, unless it’s a widetoothed comb I don’t let combs touch my hair anymore because fairy knots are the devil and I swear my hair is sitting there talking shit like “Give me a reason to break, bitch.”
My last step after I plat my hair if I do is Carol’s Daughter’s Anti Breakage spray.
Deep conditioning hair mask: Monoi Mask. Basically, I use most of the line at this point. I also leave my mask in for an hour.
Also, before I forget I’ve been fucking with Biotin for a little while but I stopped taking it and my aunt suggested I try her vitamins so I’ve been on them for roughly 3 months now and my hair is actually a little thin in the front from braiding. It’s filling in nicely and my nails are getting ridiculously long. They tend to grow but break.
Recent hair things I started using:
https://www.etsy.com/shop/ThermalHairCare I finally decided to stop being cheap and bought one via her ebay store. Enrolling in Ebay bucks makes everything you purchase worth credits you can use at the end of two months to get discounts on purchases.
The link to the vitamins:
You can also find these on ebay for way less in a smaller bottle and slightly different formula. Anyone interested, when I got these there was a sale going on so I have a coupon for 20% off throughout the month of August. Ebay is probably your best bet though. My large bottle was 99.90
That’s pretty much everything.
nah, they portray her as white because she was white.
Next they’ll demand history books to be re-written in order to not be racist.
Wait, I think they’re already doing that.
Cleopatra was part of the Ptolemaic dynasty, who were Macedonian Greeks who served Alexander the Great before his death. Because they followed the Egyptian custom of marrying siblings they had little to no actual Egyptian blood in them. Thus having an actual Egyptian woman portray Cleopatra would be historically incorrect.
I laugh at people who don’t know Cleopatra technically wasn’t even Egyptian.
People believe what coincides with their opinions.
I knew she was white but I didn’t know she wasn’t actually Egyptian. Hmmph. The more ya know
WHITE PEOPLE FOREVER PRETENDING THAT EVERYONE WHO IS CONSIDERED “WHITE” NOW WAS “WHITE” FOREVER AGO
Cleopatra’s mom probably was African—black sub-Saharan African on her mother’s side if she and her sister Arsinoe had the same mothers. They shared the same Greek/Macedonian father. Check out the article, BBC NEWS | Also in the news | Cleopatra’s mother ‘was African’. See the uTube video, Cleopatra’s sister Arsinoe had African ancestry - YouTube. Egyptians and Nubians in ancient times had been marrying one another, say most archaeologists.
The only problem is scientists found Cleopatra’s sister having African features, but don’t know whether the two sisters had the same mother. Cleopatra also had two brothers. And the scientists conclusion is based on African skull shape from drawings of a skeleton found in a tomb in Ephesus, Turkey assumed to hold the bones of Cleopatra’s teenage sister, Arsinoe.
I mean it’s not like the damn Egyptians painted her as being a brown-skinned woman or anything
