4 Times Lance played with Keith’s hair (+1 time Keith played with Lance’s) by kickfoxing (1/1 | 6,895 | Not Rated)

“I used to do my niece’s hair before dance since her sister was always too busy to help out. I’m a natural hair stylist although I’m better at buns than braids. One time, she had to…” Lance babbled on about his niece while Keith was lost in thought. What had originally felt like tugging on his scalp, had settled into soft movements that were relaxing to Keith. He closed his eyes for a moment and let the timbre of Lance’s voice wash over him. I could listen to him talk for hours.

Who knew that Keith admitting that he was scared after watching a horror movie would lead to one of the best nights of his life? Keith certainly didn’t!

Keith doesn’t like his freckles. Lance does.

You have any tips on loc maintenance? Also any directories I can look into?(YouTube, Tumblr page, etc) long time follower btw. Plan to show MUCH more support.

Maintaining dreadlocks is very different from maintaining other natural hair styles.

Your maintenance routine will vary depending on the age of your dreads and the method you used to start them.

The two most popular methods for starting and maintaining dreadlocks in natural black hair are twisting/palmrolling and latching.

=> here there is a great article about the two methods https://www.knattydread.com/pages/maintain-dreadlocks


FEW TIPS FOR HEALTHY DREADLOCKS

1- FIND A GOOD LOCKTICIAN

A locktician that can give you great advice and recommend healthy products. Make sure you feel comfortable with her or him and have a real conversation about your hair objectives and your desired look.

2- KEEP YOUR LOCS CLEAN

Locs thrive in a clean environment. When you are first starting locs, water actually helps to loc your hair faster. Once you are fully locked continue to wash your hair on a regular basis. Cleansing is a part of any healthy hair care routine.

3- MASSAGE YOUR SCALP

It stimulates hair growth. You’d be surprised how the simple act of gently massaging your hair at night for about 5 minutes, will really help you achieve the beautiful locs you desire.

4- MOISTURE YOUR LOCKS

Give your locs the moisture it craves, starting from the scalp, down to the tip of the loc. Be careful to avoid products, such as creams and heavy waxes, that can cause build up in the loc. Use oils such as Olive oil to start with as you gain more knowledge about locs.

5- DON’T RETWIST YOUR HAIR TOO MUCH

If done too often it can start to create breakage and thinning at the root. Your edges are especially sensitive and prone to breaking off, so just be careful, you don’t want your hairline to lean back.

4- SLEEP WITH A SCARF

Locs tend to shed a lot, and protecting your edges and your scalp is crucial. A silk night cap helps keep the moisture in your hair and scalp, as well as protect your hair from pillow friction.

5- EXPERIMENT !

Try different ways of cleaning, oiling and styling your hair. Everyone’s hair has different textures and no ONE technique will work for everyone

6- USE NATURAL PRODUCTS

There are a lot of products out there that are made with just chemicals, and/or “natural” ingredients mixed with chemical ingredients that will strip your hair of its natural oils that is needed to hydrate, moisturize and grow. Natural ingredients, still give you the same benefit as any of the chemical based products but with no side effects

7- BE PATIENT

Locking your hair is a journey and it’s a little different for each person. Some people’s hair locs faster than others. Thicker hair tends to lock faster. But if
you take good care of your hair then the growth will come. So don’t get discouraged.

8- ENJOY YOUR JOURNEY

Don’t compare yourself with others that are in the in their loc journey. Locs is a process. Take your time and enjoy your hair.

So, I was rewatching 7x15…

And for some reason, the scene where Ali and Emily are talking on the phone, with Ali confirming Emily is in fact the mother of the child, caught my eye.

More specifically, I found a single frame very odd, in particular. After Emily says “I’m not thinking anything right now” it cuts to Ali, and then to a shelf in her house. It seems like a weird choice, stylistically, so, naturally, I assumed the shot held some sort of clue. The first (several) time(s) I watched this scene, I focused on the baby picture, but this time (probably because I was finally able to take off my Emison goggles) I decided to focus on the books next to the picture. Anyway, I’ve never really done a whole lot of researching for this show, but I haven’t seen anyone talk about this, so I figured I’d share what I find and hopefully people will add in their opinions as well.

Catwalk applicant form

Name: Isis Moran
Age: 26
Gender Identity: Female (she/her)

Why do you want to be on Catwalk?
I’ve been a model for many years, but I chose to quit a couple years ago. I was in a bachelor competition (I was first eliminated), and after that I realized how shallow my life had become. I’ve spent the last couple of years working as a volunteer for orphaned kids (I’m an orphan myself), and being active in the Black Lives Matter-movement. But I do miss modelling, and I’d like to use this as my chance to get back!

Describe your fashion style:
Simple, trendy, classic, urban. I tend to gravitate to black and white and clean lines, and I prefer to keep my hair natural (but will let stylists do whatever they wish of course!)

What makes you stand out from other models?
My background. I’ve been homeless, in fosterhomes, and in a loving adopted home. I’ve lived the gltiz and glamour, and I’ve been teargassed by the police while protesting. I have a broad range of memories and emotions to tap into to get the right feel on a shoot.

Describe your personality:
I’m loud and proud! I take up a lot of space and I ain’t afraid to show my emotions. I have 4 adopted siblings so you learn to make yourself heard! I also like to think I’m funny, I can talk easily to most everyone, and I love being the center of attention. I’m an intersectional feminist and won’t tolerate any sh*t, I won’t let myself or others be stepped on. I’m also a good listener and friend. I hate it being quiet, I always have music on or a movie in the background. I hate working out, but I do it anyway! I’m stubborn you see ;) 

I made some much needed upgrades to my “home studio” (aka the desk with the little window next to it…) If you’ve ever wondered how I light foodstuffs, there you have it.. A desk and a window! Zzzz.

I’ve never played with actual backdrops before.. Always thought they might look super corny, but I got these sweet 3x3 textured backdrops and they totally don’t suck! Also finally stained the other side of my table top.

MY ESSAY WRITING AS A FRESHMAN VS SENIOR

I stumbled upon essays which I wrote as a freshman, and my jaw just dropped. I was a stupid ass motherucker. Heres an example:

This is my introduction to an essay over the novel playing with enemy during my freshman year:

“We control our destiny very greatly. We control it by how we act, and the choices we make every day. Gene controlled his destiny a lot as well. He didn’t let anything get into his way.”

And heres an introduction I wrote on a Hamlet essay during my senior year:

“William Shakespeare’s metaphysical revenge tragedy Hamlet illuminates an existentialist struggle in upholding conventional duties in the face of changing contextual paradigms. By embodying irresolution as a facet of our human nature, Shakespeare stylistically explicates potential moral scruples arising from conflicts in loyalty and socio-political corruption. Enriched by the powerful dramatic structure and intense characterisation, it is Shakespeare’s masterful exploration of these timeless thematic concerns, still relevant through a modern lens, which grants Hamlet its rich textual integrity.”

There’s still hope for all you freshman who suck at English!
