Why I Am Against Washing Natural Hair In The Shower.

The hot water heater and air conditioner are the greatest inventions that make life enjoyable. Utopia, a hot shower on a cold winter's morning or air conditioning on a hot summer's day. Both of these temperature adjusting thing-a-ma-jigs were once luxury items but are now necessities in developed countries. Like, the weather can effect the health of hair, so can these magical machines.

If you have ever showered with a man, it becomes evident pretty quickly that our tolerance for warmer temperatures are much higher than theirs. Let's face it, hot/warm showers are relaxing. The negative effects can be dry, parched skin but the spa like relaxation is worth it. The temptation to turn up the heat in the shower may not be the best for your curly hair. If you are experiencing dry damaged hair and you shampoo in the shower, I urge you to stop now. Washing your hair in the shower, while using hot/warm water is damaging and drying on our strands. Especially if you take long showers (20+ minutes).

Hot water strips the moisture and oil out of the hair and scalp leaving it dry, parched and scaly. Are you experiencing dry flaky scalp? This maybe the source of your problem. In addition to dehydration, hot water will leave your hair frizzy. Cool water on the other hand, has the opposite effect. To combat dry, frizzy hair, use a moisturizing shampoo and leave-in conditioner with cool water. On your next wash day, use cool or room temperature water to shampoo and rinse product out the hair. Take notice of the condition of your hair and scalp afterwards.

VIDEO: DIY Honey Egg Mayo Deep Treatment & How I Use Kurlee Belle Natural Hair Products

Hey Kurlees! I have not filmed a video in awhile, so decided to get back to it. In this video, you will see how I use Kurlee Belle Products and how I deep condition my hair with a homemade protein treatment. For my deep conditioning regimen, I alternate between KB's Banana Nut & Avocado Deep Treatment because I like to use a protein treatment once a month...if you are wondering why KB's Deep Treatment is not in this video. Also in this video, I introduce a brand new styling product that we are adding to the line. I am super excited about it and hope you will be too!

Vogue Doesn't Like Kim Kardashian

To add insult to injury, Vogue posted it's Best Dressed List for the 2013 Met Gala, and cropped Kim Kardashian out of the photo with Kayne West. 

It has been rumored that Vogue's Editor In Chief, Anna Wintour, is not a fan of Kim. At a dinner with Wintour last week, West pleaded with Wintour for Kim to attend. Kim not only attended but showed up in an unflattering Givenchy dress resembling Grandma's couch. Wintour, who has compared Kim to a pair of socks, was not happy with Kim's fashion she did what any fashion god would do and pretended as if Kim wasn't even there. 

 See who made Vogue's Best Dressed List, click here

Sorry Kim, you did not make the best dressed list....even Robin Williams thought he rocked floral better than you. 

Poor Kimmie! 

Thoughts Kurlees??

Charles Ramsey Our Natural Hair Hero!

Charles Ramsey, the Cleveland man who helped Amanda Berry escape, has become an overnight internet sensation. Although there is a lot of controversy surrounding whether Charles is a hero or not, we certainly think he is. Many people would have turned a blind eye or went about their business when faced with helping a person in distress, but Charles made it his business to lend a helping hand.

Yes he is funny. Yes he has a Natural Hair Mullet. But there is no mistaking that he is brave.

Like any superhero, Charles assessed the situation and took action.

In an interview with Anderson Cooper, Charles Ramsey stated that he doesn't think of himself as a hero  just as a Christian. An American. A person who bleeds the same blood. And puts his pants on the same way.

The funny thing is, that is what a hero is. A hero is an ordinary person who performs an extraordinary act. Charles Ramsey is now a social media meme.  With several instagram quotes floating around with the hashtag #charlesramsey. For us, it is refreshing to see a black man of Charles's profile being recognized for lending a helping hand to his neighbors.

"I knew something was wrong when a little, pretty white girl ran into a black man's arms. Something is wrong here. Dead giveaway."

"I'm eating my McDonald's. I come outside. I see this girl going nuts trying to get out of a house."

“You got to have some big testicles to pull this off, bro, because we see this dude every day. I mean every day,”

“I barbecue with this dude. We eat ribs and what not and listen to salsa music. Know where I’m coming from?”

If you have grown up in the black community, chances are you know a Charles Ramsey. He may not be dressed to the nines but he is funny, nice and honest.  Whether America wants to laugh at Charles or not, we applaud his heroism. He is our Natural Hair Hero!

We bought McDonald's this morning, just because...oh and Charles if you are reading this, we would like to send you some Kurlee Belle products! :)

Kerry Washington Covers Elle Magazine

Kerry Washington aka The Fixer aka Fitz's mistress aka Olivia Pope graces the cover of Elle Magazine's June Issue. If you no idea what the alias's refer to in the opening sentence, then you must not have access to a TV or smartphone. 

Scandal, a major hit on ABC, comes on Thursday night's at 10 pm i.e. when it is not on sabbatical. Explanation: Scandal is supposed to be a weekly series but it has a history of taking two weeks off between episodes--leaving its fans wanting for more. Any who, back to the Elle Magazine cover.... since Kerry landed the role of Olivia Pope, she has been the talk of the town and red carpet. This role has landed her a new title of fashion icon. At Kurlee Belle, the only thing we love more than natural hair is fashion. We cannot wait to get our hands on this new issue of Elle (hits newsstands May 21st) and see what The Fixer has to offer.
