Teyana Taylor Betta Stop Playin’ With Me!

Girrrrrrrl, Teyana Taylor has been doing the media circuit in New York to promote her new show that she will be featuring in along with her husband, Iman Shumpert, and their adorable baby girl.

But BUMP…ALL…THAT!

You see her blonde hair color and cut though?!?!

This woman’s hair and style is FIERCE! She gonna have me grabbing some scissors in a minute if she don’t stop playin’ with my dang emotions, lol.

Everybody knows that Teyana Taylor used to have a head full of lusciously long hair, she would often give love and credit to Mane Choice hair vitamins, and maybe when/if she decides to grow her hair back, that will be her secret weapon again. But for now…. Honeeeeeey, she is ROCKIN’ THE MESS outta that cut.

The crazy part is that I’ve NEVER been a fan of the blonde hair dye on black women, bit just never looked right TO ME (don’t bite my head off for my humble opinion), but girrrrl, Teyana is changing my mind. At least she’s changed my mind for how it fits her.

I will post a few pics below in the gallery so that you can see what I’m talking about.

Could You Rock This Blond Bombshell Look? Would You?

So now, I wanna hear from you in the comment section below. Could you pull this look off? Would you cut your hair to try this look? Or is this a “Hollywood” look that isn’t practical for the normal person out here in the skreets?

Yes, I said “skreets”. Don’t Judge me…

Anyway y’all… Keep an eye out for her new show coming out soon called “Teyana & Iman”, it’s on VH1, so we’re just gonna have to pray that the show aint super-ratchet. Lord knows I can’t mess with none of the “Love & Hip Hop” shows no more. Girl, I feel like I’m disrespecting my ancestors watching that foolery, lol.

Hopefully Teyana’s new show will help show a beautiful example of REAL Black love, family and positivity.

Explanation of Hair Typing & The Case Against It!

What’s your hair type? Are you a 3b or 4A hair type?

We’re asked very often about hair typing systems. More specifically – many naturals are interested in how to determine their hair type. Generally speaking – we don’t discuss hair typing very often because there are many things that each person must do to care for their hair regardless of their individual hair type.

Having said that, we do recognize that there are some differences associated with caring for certain types of hair. Furthermore, many women utilize hair typing systems to describe the way their hair looks.

Now look,  we recognize that the system created by Andre Walker (Oprah’s stylist) is popular and so we talk about it.  This doesn’t mean that Andre Walker’s system is necessarily the best or most accurate.

Oprah’s stylist for 25+ years… Andre Walker created a hair typing system that many use today….

Disclaimer: It’s very easy to incorrectly determine your hair type if you only look at the pictorial representations that have been provided. Please don’t rule out a particular hair type simply because your hair doesn’t look like the pictures below.

Andre Walker’s Hair Typing System

Andre Walker is famously known for creating a hair typing system or infamously known depending on your perspective. Andre reveals his hair typing system in a book titled Andre Talks Hair!

Andre makes it very clear in his book that everyone has good hair regardless of ethnicity. He was hoping to immediately debunk the often ridiculous good hair vs. bad hair debate prior to diving into a discussion about hair typing.

 

Even if you have a negative opinion of Andre Walker, I encourage you to read the book yourself and develop your own opinion of his hair typing system in Andre Talks Hair!. Andre’s system isn’t communicated accurately on many popular blogs that have written articles about the system. Having said that, let’s discuss the hair types defined in Andre Talks Hair!

Type 4: Kinky Hair

Type 4 Kinky Hair

Type 4 Kinky Hair: Type 4 is “kinky” or more appropriately full of tight coils (tightly curled hair). Typically, Type 4 hair is also extremely wiry and fragile. Often times, it appears to be coarse, but it is actually really very fine, with several thin hair strands densely packed together. Note that type 4 hair is one the most common hair types found in black hair (African American hair).

  • Type 4A hair is full of tight coils. It has an “S” pattern when stretched, much like Type 3 curly hair.
  • Type 4B hair has a less defined pattern of curls and looks more like a “Z” as the hair bends with very sharp angles.
  • Type 4C hair isn’t a part of the Andre Walker Hair Typing System. Please see the “what’s missing” section below for more information.

Type 3: Curly Hair

Type 3 Wavy Hair

 

Type 3 Curly Hair: Curly hair textures have a definite “S” shaped curl pattern. Since the cuticle doesn’t lay flat, you will notice that curly hair isn’t nearly as shiny as Type 1 (straight hair) or Type 2 (wavy hair) hair types.

  • Type 3A hair is very shiny and loose.
  • Type 3B hair has a medium amount curls, ranging from bouncy ringlets (spiral like curls of hair) to tight corkscrews (spiral-shaped corkscrew curls).
  • Type 3C hair isn’t a part of the Andre Walker Hair Typing System. Please see the “what’s missing” section below for more information.

Type 2: Wavy Hair

Type 2 Wavy Hair: Type 2 is wavy hair that usually isn’t overly oily or very dry. The thought is that Type 2 hair falls right in the middle of Type 1 and Type 3.

  • Type 2A hair is fine and thin. It is relatively easy to handle from a styling perspective because it can easily be straightened or curled.
  • Type 2B hair characteristically has waves that tend to adhere to the shape of your head.
  • Type 2C hair will frizz easily and it is fairly coarse.

 

Type 1: Straight Hair

Type 1 Straight Hair: Generally speaking Type 1 hair is straight;  this hair type into three very specific segments – Type 1A, Type 1B, and Type 1C.

  • Type 1A hair is described as fine, very thin and soft with a noticeable shine.
  • Type 1B hair is medium-textured and has more body than Type 1A hair.
  • Type 1C hair is the most resistant to curly styling and relatively coarse compared to other Type 1 hair types.

What’s Missing? Now, Let’s Discuss Hair Type 3C and Type 4C

You’ll notice that Type 3C and Type 4C hair types aren’t mentioned in the discussion above, that’s because they were not included in the original Andre Walker system.

Type 3C was created after Andre Walker released his hair typing system by a community member at NaturallyCurly.com. The prevailing thought was that the original hair typing system left this hair type out. Consequently, Type 3C hair has been defined as tight curls or coils that look like corkscrews.

Type 4C, like Type 3C, isn’t an actual hair type according to Andre Walker’s Hair System. His comments are actually very simple regarding Type 4 (Kinky) hair – if you can see a definite curl pattern, then you have Type 4A hair. If you can’t identify a defined, specific curl pattern, then your hair type is 4B. I would imagine that the Type 4C hair type was created by a member within the natural hair community – just like the Type 3C hair type.

Transitioning “Scab Hair” & Follicle Shape Change Theory…

If you have not read any hair science books from certified trichologist (hair and scalp specialist) and health scientist, Audrey Davis-Sivasothy, you are missing out on a WEALTH of information.

In her book The Science of Transitioning: A Complete Guide to Hair Care for Transitioners and New Naturals the health scientist shares some interesting insights about the “scab hair” phenomenon and how the Follicle Shape Change Theory plays a major role. Below we share some of what we learned from her book and you’ll also get links to her best-seller works at the end of this article. Check out what we learned from her about…

Perming and It’s AFTER-EFFECTS when Transitioning

According to the scalp specialist, one major way that perms and other relaxers may have an effect on your scalp can be heard in the natural hair community’s debates about the myth or reality of “The Science of Transitioning:: A Complete Guide to Hair Care for Transitioners and New Naturals by [Davis-Sivasothy, Audrey]scab hair”. Since it’s impossible to form an actually scab on hair follicles we’ll refer to it as “transitional hair”.

Transitional hair is a phenomenon that many new naturals experience just after their Big Chop, and it is defined as a combination of dry, wiry and semi-straight natural hair that does not have a defined curl or coil pattern, even with the best curl defining products.

This transitional hair (aka “scab hair”) is usually isolated to the first few inches of new growth that emerges after you’ve stopped relaxing with chemicals. Nobody knows for sure what the cause is for these changes to your hair – but there are some really good theories and we’ll talk about it right now.

Follicle Shape Change Theory

According to the “Follicle Shape- Change Theory”, extra-dry, unpredictable transitional hair is caused by actual physical changes to the hair follicles’ structure as a result of the long-term use of chemical relaxers.

Transitional hair is a temporary hair situation that is usually resolved as the follicle heals and the hair grows and settles into its permanent natural arrangement.

Some naturals are convinced that “scab hair” is a hair care industry myth or that it’s something that was dreamed up by new naturals and transitioners to explain away their unwanted hair textures.

But for those who feel they have experienced “scab hair” or transitional hair themselves, it is all too real. But, since there’s no specific scientific research to prove or disprove that transitional hair exists, theories are all we have to work with at the moment. But the proof is in the puddin’ as they say.
