THIS IS JUST REALLY FUNNY RIGHT NOW
Before she became known as the “replacement” mom on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Daphne Maxwell Reid was the first African American woman named Homecoming Queen at Northwestern University and the first Black woman to grace the cover of Glamour Magazine.
I met her at a NU homecoming event. she shared with us the racism she experienced at our school. how her first roommate saw her walk into the dorm room and stormed out because she didn’t want to live with a nigger. how when she won the crown for homecoming, the president of the university refused to place it on her head. and how when she walked on stage no one clapped for her, it was complete silence except for the black students.
Northwestern’s history is very ugly and I’m glad that I was a part of the legacy of black students that fought to make changes at NU
Mud in Your Hair?
Turns out, clay can be very beneficial for hair in the same way it can be beneficial in the rest of the body: it removes toxins to leave hair super-clean and with a lot of shiny volume.
I still like my coconut milk shampoo, but from the comments, it definitely doesn’t work for everyone. This recipe is another great option that could be used regularly. It seems especially good for those with fine or naturally oily hair as it leaves the hair very clean, but I also found sites recommending it for those with coarse or frizzy hair for its ability to tame the hair (I can’t speak personally on this one as my hair is very fine.
If no-poo hasn’t worked for you, and homemade shampoo hasn’t worked for you, I’d encourage you to try this option. It can be customized for your hair type and lasts up to a week in the shower.
Sound strange to wash your hair with mud? Give it a try…
As I mentioned in my herbal hair colors post, different herbs can have darkening or lightening effects on hair. Nettle is said to be great for hair, so I would use this on any hair color. I used chamomile flowers on my hair since it is blonde, but rosemarywould be a better choice for dark hair (and it is also supposed to be good for dandruff).
These are the mixtures I’ve tried:
- For blonde hair: 1/4 cup chamomile flowers + 2 tablespoons nettle leaf in 2 cups boiling water
- For dark hair: 1/4 cup Rosemary leaf + 2 tablespoons nettle leaf in 2 cups of boiling water
After the mixture cools, I strained out the herbs and used 1 cup for the clay recipe and 1 cup for the final rinse with 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar added.How to Detox Your Hair – Natural Clay Mud MaskPrep time5 minsTotal time5 minsThis natural clay mask for hair is an effective shampoo and detoxifying mask that leaves hair shiny and with healthy volume.Author: Wellness MamaRecipe type: BeautyIngredientsInstructions
- Note: Bentonite clay is most effective if it doesn’t come in contact with metal before use. Mix with wood, plastic or glass for best results, though I haven’t found that this makes much of a difference for hair products. I use an old mini-food processor with a plastic dough blade that I found at a thrift shop.
- Brew the herbal tea and let cool slightly, make sure all herbs are strained out.
- Pour tea and apple cider vinegar in a blender, food processor or non-metal bowl.
- Start adding clay a tablespoon at a time while blending or whisking to incorporate it.
- Keep adding clay until mixture is smooth and about the consistency of yogurt.
- Add essential oils if using and mix in.
- Store in an air-tight container in the shower for up to a week.
- To Use: Wet hair. Starting at roots, massage a handful of the clay mixture into hair and work down to the roots. Repeat until all hair is coated. Leave 5 minutes or up to 20 minutes (do not let dry!) and rinse out with warm water.
- optional: Rinse with a cup of herbal tea with 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar added.
Not every man must be violent toward every woman in order for violence to control women’s behavior. Rather, knowing that some women are victims of horrific violence is enough to control the behavior and limit the movement of all women in society. The creation of a culture of fear secures men’s status over women” (Yodanis, 2004, p. 658)

My niece and nephews have asked this.
Why do you never hear this?
- business: I can't afford to pay my employees a living wage.
- free market conservatives: Lazy! If you can't afford one of the basic expenses of running a business, you shouldn't be running a business. Go back to school and learn how to run a business! Get a better business model! Why should you expect the rest of us to prop up your failure by feeding and clothing the employees YOU can't pay for with our tax money?
THANK GOD FOR WHO EVER MADE THIS.
This just became my solution to not caring
