(T.O.) Why I LOVE it: Hey Mr. Greg May

During TIFF, I did a brief interview with Greg May of Greg May Hair Architects; and in that interview he was giving us some info on his new “fully loaded argan oil” line, which smells like orange creamsicle FYI!!
For those of you that haven’t had the pleasure of witnessing my obsession with hair products, let me tell you this. I friggin LOVE them, but only if they offer…BENEFITS! And argan oil, brings the BENEFITS!

Um… as much as I love you guys, I will not be sharing the picture 
with my shrunken fro, thank you very much. lol, so this will have to do 🙂
Anyway, after speaking with Greg, I was super excited to try out his new line; I even made an exception and used the shampoo. Why was this an exception? Because I don’t like shampoo… whatever don’t judge me! As a kid I hated shampooing my hair, it was just an unpleasant experience. As an adult, I find that nothings changed; except this time it’s not only myself that hates shampoo, but so does my hair. So I usually skip the shampooing stage, and wash my hair with conditioner, before doing a deep conditioning treatment.

Some of the MANY benefits: reduces frizz, adds shine, and increases natural hydration. It also provides a thin, protective coating, that helps protect the hair from damage caused by flat irons, curling irons and blow dryers… WINNER!!

Anyway, Mr. Greg May, TWO THUMBS UP for the “fully loaded argan oil” line! If I had more hands I’d give you double thumbs up with those as well! My hair felt soooo luxurious after… so soft, shiny and it smelled sooo GOOD. So GOOD!
peace and love

(NY) For Colored Girls by Tyler Perry

“being colored a metaphysical dilemma i haven’t conquered yet”

The movie is based on Ntozake Shange’s play “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf.” Unlike the original play which featured only 7 women known by colors performing the collection of 20 poems, the movie has given each of the 20 characters names. Each of the poems deal with intense issues that particularly impact women in a thought-provoking commentary on what it means to be a female of color in the world.

A movie based on this book:
Star studded cast, epic directorial, breathtaking soundtrack… Before you remind me that I am Chinese and this movie is not for me – let me remind you that the issues minority women face are in fact universal and not based on racial difference. The reason why I am excited for this movie is because it powerful and emotional and of cultural importance.
Absolutely cannot wait to see this movie. PS, Tyler Perry, i love you even though you are a Virgo.

Each of the women portray one of the characters represented in the collection of twenty poems, revealing different issues that impact women in general and women of color in particular.

Comes out Nov 5th!
