Just stumbled across this. Why does this even matter? 😞 It shouldn't even be up to discussion. My son is 3/4 black 1/4 white and is close to this complexion. We come in all colors. I don't get why these things matter. What are your thoughts? Let's share 👇🏽 #mixxxedchicks#mixedgirlproblems
The sun shines bright on flawless curls.

💭 | Okay, for those who are mixed know the struggle of having two different types of hair 😣. It's so frustrating at times because yes, my hair is coarse but it's still very curly and manageable (at times). Curls tend to tangle more than straight, and my hair is super voluminous and my hands hurt a lot when I braid, but I do love my hair. I'm finding more and more ways to with each passing day! When I was younger I didn't. I absolutely HATED my hair. I was so focused on what those people in the beauty industry thought of beauty... I thought I had to have slick and silky hair to be considered beautiful. And if I'm being completely honest, I'm still no where near where I want to be as far as my image. I still fear to be out in the sun too much because I already have nice tanned skin. I don't even like to smile in pictures, but this is decent enough I guess. (I'll explain more in another post.) | I was so lost in that type of thinking, I would get upset when my hair would be nice and thin but the humidity would poof it back out. My Gramma would constantly remind me saying, "You're not white." I absolutely HATED her saying that. I KNOW I am not. From seeing the girls on television, I figured I NEEDED the type of hair they have, to be appreciated and noticed. I started perming my hair. On top of that, I did relaxers as well. I straightened my hair constantly and then I repeatedly dyed it. I 👏 ruined 👏 my 👏 hair 👏. I had to cut all my 20 inches, and grow it it out again. I'm somewhere near 12 now but nooo. It's been a long journey but I feel like I needed to experience that because it made me appreciate my natural hair. Once it was gone, I realized what I had lost.. Sometimes it's like that with things in life, but thankfully its my OWN hair I took for granted and not like an actual being. | 💭
💭 | Not gonna lie.. I love my white boys 😍. Idk I've just always imagined myself with one.. Like our babies would be sooo adorable, just saying. I have nothing against other races, it's just what I'm strongly attracted to. My Gramma actually prefers me with people of my father's origins. (Italian/Spanish) But I can never find any!! I lowkey feel like a large portion of them are scared of black/mixed girls.. We aren't ALL "ghetto"or "loud and ignorant" or "look mean". In fact, any race could be labeled those things.. And while we're on the topic of stereotypes, I don't even really listen to rap. (Even if I did, nothing wrong with that. My choice of music doesn't define me.) I care for musicals, comics, and ballet when I'm bothered to. I'm even an experienced opera singer! See, there's more to people and I just feel like I'm never really given a chance. Idk. Just typing| 💭
The perfect trio. Can't leave town without them.

Gel isn't just for your edges. Style your curls with control and definition without the crunch. °

i've had this love-hate (mostly hate) relationship with my skin my entire life. it was always problematic - dry, itchy... but i've learned to love it for what it does offer me - various shades of creamy tans and browns that change throughout the year. 🍯
