Lack of Afro Hair & Beauty Products

I have lived in Northern England most of my life and I am truthly fed up of the struggle to get hair & beauty products .People of black African descent arent well catered for .I am on the hunt for a Afro Pik hair attachment for my Asda Hair dryer and I just cant seems to find one.

When I do find one with doesnt find my hair dryer. I brought a Wahl one and it only fitted my old Vidal Sasson hair dryer that I gave to my mum .

The next one I brought was £1.30 from China and its just to small. Its doesnt fit my Travel dryer or my Cute lightweight Asda Dryer.

Its lovely Afro Pik but why o why doesnt it fit? I remember 15 years ago . Hair dryer came with Afro Pik ,I brought  Vidal Sasson Dryer with one. But you cant get replacement parts for the Afro Pik when it breaks off. You have to buy a whole new one. But the brand of Vidal Sasson Dryer doesnt do afro pik attachment with hair dryers anymore. When will white mainstream society realise us black people hair isnt a fashion accessory its are natural hair.

Sleek Kohl Eyeliner review

I have brought Sleek Kohl Eyeliner for years and love black eyeliner to dark my eyebrows and give them the full eastern African bush eyebrows look lol.

I am obsessed with full eyebrows,look how it looks.But what I found with the Sleek eyeliner is it’s not that good.Its splits a lot when your trying to sharpen it.The eyeliner a bit cream goes on reasonable well.But I have to say after years of using it .I want better quality.its constant breaking when I am trying to sharper it .I am beginning to realise why people say you, get what you pay for.I dont know if anyone has any Kohl eyeliner you would recommend of better quality for me ? I have tried various budget brands like Miss Sporty and Collection 2000 but there the same .The quality isn’t that great. There all around £3.00 and they aint that good.

Exfoliating my lips.

I love lipstick and I feel like wearing lipstick really makes my face pop.It give me that come hither look.But I haven’t always felt confident wearing lipstick , since l have big lips. And the European beauty standard which is force down most people throats here, effected me as a teenager with white kids making fun of my big lips. But as l’ve got older , l was like F the European standard of beauty .I am African not European genetically and many Africans have big lips.I was getting to old to hate on my African looks and pretend to be something I am not. It was time to celebrate my African dna.

But unfortunately lacking in racial self esteem wasn’t the only problem l had. I also had chronic my dry lips. I would wear lipstick and my lips would start peeling around the corners. I didn’t know why. I didn’t realize ,your meant to exfoliates your lips regularly and moisture them. To stop your lips peeling, drying and cracking. I feel like beauty and taking care of your face and body is look down in the age of feminism ,while women, girls chase equal pay and equality in patriarchy society we live in. Women and girls are constantly told in school to learn there AB , Maths and English but not how to look after there skin and hair.I wasn’t taught nothing about looking after my skin and hair at high school. Even though neglecting these things can lead to health problems.The irony of it.Truth feminism I believe would teach young girls to look after the physical health not just there education.Since you only get one body.

This week I started hunting for a recipe to use to exfoliate my lip and solve my chronic dry lips. I found a simple lip scrub recipe on Superdrug.com which can be made with ingredients you have in you kitchen cupboard.Its Coconut Oil lip scrub recipe below.

.Coconut Oil Lip Scrub

  • 20mg of organic coconut oil
  • 20mg of brown sugar
  • 5mg of coarse sea salt
  • A drop of your favourite essential oil

Homemade Coconut oil & sugar Lip Scrub

I use Coconut oil, plain white Sugar I didn’t have Brown Sugar in the cupboards , Lavender oil and a toothbrush to scrub my lips with the mixed for two minutes. I use medium bristle toothbrush and then wiped it away with a tissue. And then moisture my lips with Palm oil.

My lips felt lovely afterwards and I will try using lip scrub two or three times a week and see if the dry lips problem stops. Have you learnt any new beauty or health tips this week? Please comment below .Please subscribe and share my blog on social media.

The first thing I brought was two new batteries for my Nikon d5100 ,as filming drains batteries very quickly.The next thing I brought was external microphone to record the sound .Then I brought tripod to hold the camera steady.I also brought USB card reader and usb battery charger for my Nikon batterries. Lastly I brought Camera battery grip so my Nikon 5100 camera can use two batteries when filming. There a few other things l need to brought but l will blog them when I buy them.

 

YouTube Protecting Bullys

Over the last few months have I been networking online and have been threaten and bullied by many black men .Ezra Azir ,Jedionline ,Raspect , Mysta Lee , Beefie ,Content over Everything who are all YouTubers who have YouTube channels. YouTube havent done much about it but take one of my videos down complaining about the black man JediOnline who threaten several black people and me.

He went online and said I had been sectioned and on anti psychotic drugs on Content Over Everything video. Which is a lie. He hasnt proved it but I have proved hes threaten people, as I record him threatening people.Hes a dangerous man. and should be locked up. He just trying to discredit me .

Also Danny Taylor also threatened me hes part of G Circle.

Jedi has been for months trying to intimidated me and cyber bully me .But I have stood firm .I wont be threaten or intimidated by pothead and violent thug like Jedi or hes backup dancers. There plain criminals and cancer in the black community, they need to be exposed.

Jedi Online is a violence thug  and threatens many black people who just disagree with hes promoting of Cannabis and violence. Jedi also verbal attacks Africans who speak of there African heritage .Hes done that to me several times. Because hes ashamed to be African but loves to pretend to be Jamaican. And wants to make other Africans pretend to be Jamaican. And  hes also use violence to other black man on camera. Just because he disagree with him. Video below.Jed preach peace but use violence. Hes a  hypocrite

Jedi manage to have whole channels against him because of hes threaten ,intimidate and violence .I know quite a few black people who have complained about him to me and been threaten by him. I always tell them to report him and report to YouTube.

Raspect is another headcase and pothead. He makes video’s cyber bullying and attacking Africans. He made this video inciting people to attack a guy called max from Canada but walks around London  claiming to be getting young black boys out of violence .He is the problem in the black community.Hes hypocrite and thug.

YouTube has once again left the video up even though hes used Max photo and he clears says he has ahki in Canada to deal with Max. Its disgusting what Raspect Jedi do to people.Any black boy following them will only end up in prison. They bad role models.

Raspect ,Jedi and Mike also were disrespect to old Nigerian man who just wanted to know about G Circle and advise them .Video here.Timestamp 1.52.28 There like feral cats .

Ezra Azir is a Jamaican guy from Birmingham who has threatened me several times and other black people .He hides from the camera but goes on Respect and Jedi channel attacking me. They made a video saying there had a photos of me in a threesome which was a lie and once again YouTube kept it up. Video here. Listen to Timestamp 1.52.43 To listen to the lies there spreading against me. They are bullies get together to make adobe Photoshop videos and videos attacking my character and other black people. YouTube do nothing about it even though I and other have complained.

 

Also its important to note that the guy Mysta Lee was the Jamaican guy from Birmingham who fancied me and wanted to take me to dinner.And get with me. When he could not get me ,he started verbal attacking me online. The best thing is he has a woman .Hes disgusting person and obviously cheats on hes woman

YouTube has been accused in the past by the Government of promoting hate speech and criminals. From my experience over the last few months I have seen just what YouTube are about. And its true.

You Tube doesn’t protect people from cyber bullying and there protect the bully’s and promote violence , racism and injustice for profit. If my cyber bullying goes to court Jedi and hes merry men would be exposed as violence bully’s. People have ask me to upload the video again of Jedi threatening people but I don’t want to make my channel about exposing these black criminals.But if anyone wants the recording there should just tweet me or contact me. Its important to expose these violence men who claim to be helping stop the gang violence in London while threatening other black people. Watch out for this

Watch out for this violence gang G Circle there aren’t men of peace ,they are men of war.

The sad thing is there many people in the G Circle who want to help protect young black boys and stop knife claim. But the leadership will only leader boys from the school to the prison pipeline and spend there time threatening other black people. .
