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.

Teyana Taylor new show and Iman haircut

 

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.

Like Drake says, "WE GON' SEE!"

So check out her SUPER CUTE photos that we captured from various interviews, the photo gallery below has them all and even a cute pic from when her hair was super long and full and she was reppin'for Mane Choice Hair Growth Pills.

The cool thing is... Sometimes something delicious can actually help you reach you hair greatness goals.

Y'all betta recognize the gang of benefits that certain fruits and vegetables can offer your hair, it's for real. The whole ‘juice and berries’ concept isn’t bad AT ALL.

There are recipes for beauty regimens that contain everything from egg shells to rice water, and their uses have been passed down for generations among many cultures. One deliciously beneficial ingredient is the Paw-Paw fruit, also known as Papaya.

[Follow BlackHairOMG on Instagram we got the hair pics & videos FOR DAYS!]

Paw-Paw A.K.A Papaya A.K.A. Hair & Scalp Helper!

The papaya contains a large amount of Vitamin C, which is key for its restorative and healing properties. It also contains about 224% of your daily needs of vitamins and mineral. The papaya enzyme called papain breaks down proteins, fats and carbohydrates and works to prevent stomach disorders, diabetes, colorectal cancers, intestinal parasite infections, nerve pains and even elephantoid growths.

Carpaine is another chemical that the papaya has that kills off certain parasite infections. Papaya also has a host of other vitamins, acids, enzymes and minerals such as magnesium, copper, fiber, folic acid, vitamins E, A, B6, B1, beta carotene, and riboflavin. The chemical compounds in papaya are so effective that many people take the papaya enzymes in pill form.

What Papaya Does For Your Hair

As we talked about in or Water Only Washing for hair health article, healthy sebum promotes hair growth.

The folic acid that papaya contains, as well as the Vitamin C improve circulation blood circulation throughout your scalp. The result of this is that your scalp is fed the nutrients and minerals that are needed to encourage healthy hair growth and stimulate your ever-important sebaceous glands. The sebum that is produced nourishes, conditions and protects the scalp, providing a healthy environment for new growth to flourish.

How To Use Papaya Topically

  • Blend 1 cup of papaya with 1 cup carrier oil and ½ cup Aloe Vera juice. Apply this mixture to your scalp and let it sit for 15-30 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.

Hair Growth Isn't The Only Reason To Get Your Paws on Some Paw-Paw!

Papaya is used for getting rid of nasty dandruff too. Because papaya contains so much Vitamin C and A, it aids in the removal of dead skin cells, encourages healthy cell regeneration and nourishes your hair shaft. If you’re fighting against that dirty-lookin' dandruff, papaya could be the solution to your problems.

Papaya seeds have complex anti-fungal properties that help ward off and prevent dandruff. You can either use papaya seed oil, or you can blend the papaya seeds together with a good carrier oil to make a paste, apply it to the scalp and rinse out.

Product Build Up BE DARNED!

Product build-up and dead scalp skin are two major problems associated with stagnant hair growth. When the pores of your scalp are clogged, girrrrrrl, you are beggin' for trouble. they don’t get the nutrients and moisture that is needed to produce sebum. This can cause hair fall,

In that condition, your scalp doesn't get the nutrients and moisture that is needed to make hair-health promoting sebum. This can cause hair fall, dandruff and even make that your precious new growth is all brittle and ready to break of before it can even do anything. Papaya can remove residue, excess oils and dirt, from both the hair and scalp.

A DOPE Natural Conditioner!

The same enzymes that are used to tenderize meat also have a conditioning effect on the hair. We talked about how papaya can remove product build-up on your luscious tresses. Now once that gunky build-up is gone, your cuticles are able to open up and suck up that moisture and those nutrients can be infused into your hair shaft, and then shut back so that the moisture and nutrients are locked in.

You can find many products that contain papaya leaf extract which has been shown to revitalize and condition hair, or you could blend ½ of a papaya with 1 cup of yogurt and 1 tbsp. of honey to make your own homemade conditioner.

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.

Super Hair Growth Oil DIY Recipe & Instructional Video

Whenever the words hair growth and oil are in the same sentence there are a few select oils that most experts would say MUST be part of the mix.

For example, always see that your formula has oils that encourage increased circulation to the scalp as well as follicular strength so that your hair keeps from breaking. Examples include coconut oil, peppermint oil or tea tree oil.  (Join 17,500+ ladies and get BlackHairOMG's Email Newsletter)

For this hair growth recipe you will need the following:

INSTRUCTIONS: Carefully add all of your ingredients to a glass jar and mix well. When you want to use your oil just add what you need to an applicator bottle. Curly Proverbz makes it very clear that you should not use your mix beyond four weeks.

Because this recipe calls for a few ingredients that can cause allergies you should be sure to test everything especially if you are not familiar with some of the ingredients. (Get Hair Growth Tips from BlackHairOMG's Email Tipline)

Dyed Natural Hair Photo Gallery

They look gorgeous right?!?! It's undeniable. But, it's important to know what you're getting yourself and your hair into. So let's talk about so that you can make an informed decision about coloring your natural hair.

Things You Need To Know Before Coloring Your Natural Hair

While dying with darker colors, adding low-lights or coloring within your natural color range won’t cause you too many problems—the drastic color leaps upward (more than 3 shades beyond your natural color) can really take a toll on your hair. Before you make any huge color changes, first you need to understand and weigh the potential problems. Never just jump into coloring your natural hair on a whim or without a game plan for aftercare.

Here are some potential result of coloring natural hair...

1. Changes In Your Curl Pattern. Many are surprised by this, but coloring your naturally textured hair can sometimes cause unpredictable changes in your curl pattern. Sometimes, the pattern changes are permanent. Whenever you manipulate or alter your hair’s protein bonding structure a slight relaxing effect can happen. These curl pattern changes are less likely to occur in very coarse hair textures (coarse refers to the thickness or diameter of your hair fiber, not the feel of the fiber), and are more likely to occur in those with fine to medium hair textures. Prior damage may also influence whether or not you experience changes in your curl pattern. Using a protein reconstructor after coloring may help some lost curls find their way again.

2. Loss of Elasticity. Because color-treated hair has lost much of its natural moisture (and its overall ability to retain supplemental moisture given), the hair may lose some of its elasticity. Elasticity refers to the ability of your hair fibers to stretch gently and return back to their normal shape and character without damage. The elastic quality of your hair is what makes putting your hair in a ponytail or drawing a puff effortless. When your hair lacks elasticity, it does not move, bend and recover when pressured like healthy hair does— it simply gives up under pressure and snaps in its fragile condition. Again, moisture and protein balancing become critical for establishing elasticity because it’s that careful mix of moisture and strength that gives our hair the ability to resist breakage from being stretched and handled day to day.

3. Increases in Hair Porosity. Products that lighten your locs always direct affect your hair’s cortical layers. When the hair’s cuticle is weakened in this manner, your hair’s natural porosity increases leading to a dryness that's difficult to fight against. When porosity increases, dryness becomes a major problem because moisture is next to impossible to hold securely within the hair fibers. Your hair becomes like a bucket with holes poked in the sides. Color-treated hair can be unforgiving, too. Make a mistake and skip using a great deep conditioner treatment and you may find yourself parting with strands prematurely. A strict, moisture and protein-focused regimen is A MUST if your hair is to thrive in this condition. You need to learn how to balance protein and moisture sources in your regimen!

4. Undesired Color Result. Hair coloring can be very unpredictable. Why? Because color uptake is dependent on a number of factors— like your hair’s current color, texture (strand size) and porosity. Let's be real about this, the hair color on the box is just the company's best guess at what your hair will look like and remember that they do have photo shop at their disposal as well. At times, many, many steps will be needed to get your color right. If you plan on taking the color more than three shades out of your natural color range, it's probably best to have an pro stylist do it for you . Chances are, they’ve seen numerous heads with textures like yours and varying degrees of porosity—plus they have the added bonus of experiences with various colors and looks.

But look, this info is just to help you know what can happen, not to scare you. And many women gladly take the plunge and get gorgeous colored natural hairstyles like you see in our dyed natural hair photo gallery. We hope you enjoyed it and learned something new. We even found a turquoise hair dye that has amazing reviews for the truly brave ladies out there! Please share this article!
