This past Saturday at Prospect Park in Brooklyn, New York, #BlackGirlMagic was abound!

Thousands of black women attended the fourth annual Curlfest, which is the country’s largest natural beauty festival.

And these women have some serious style. Check out some of our favorite looks below – from waist-length braids to crowns to ornamental butterflies.

The annual festival is sponsored by the five women of Curly Girl Collective. Curly Group Collective is a marketing group specializing in multicultural beauty. Their goal is to celebrate women all around the world by appreciating their natural looks.

Tracey Coleman, the director of events at Curlfest, stated in a press conference, “Curlfest was founded on the idea of you all needing to be celebrated. If you look around, and you see images of beauty, they don’t necessarily look like us.”

When Coleman was asked about the natural hair movement, she said, “The great thing about the movement now is that barrier is being broken down; there’s no good hair and there’s no bad hair. Healthy hair is what’s good, so that’s what we’re here to promote.”

People Are Now Changing Their Skin Color

A new phenomenon seems to be hitting the social media airways. Transracial is the new topic that is sending shock waves through social media these days. What is this new term and is it really catching on? It seems the answer would be yes!

The concept of transracialism seems to be becoming more popular among Caucasians and lighter skinned individuals. Skin darkening is not a foreign concept to us – though this takes tanning to whole new level! Cosmetically changing your race seems to be catching on, even if it is on a small scale.

German model Martina Big has become the latest to join this phenomenon. She has invested thousands of dollars to this new fad. She posted on Facebook showing off her new transformation and stating:

I have great news. I had done the next step in my transformation to a black woman. Yesterday I was with an African hairdresser and got a hair extension with curly, African hair. To become more and more a black woman, that is such a wonderful feeling. I’m so happy. Next, I’ll have consultations for the butt enlargement and for the African facial features.

Recently, she announced that her husband is now getting melanin injections in order to change his skin color as well.

Could this be the next big thing? What are the health risks? It has many in an uproar! Could this be as acceptable as being transgender? There are many opinions regarding race across social media outlets. It will be interesting to see how this develops. Will it fade out or is it here to stay? I am sure we will find out!

Replacing Pads and Tampons with Menstrual Panties

Published

Menstrual panties are now a thing: underwear that can be used in place of pads, tampons, and menstrual cups.

So far, they’ve received great reviews. Thinx, the most popular menstrual panties brand, has a goal to “empower girls and provide safe spaces for women to talk about their health.

Thinx carries multiple styles of panties, a few types of activewear, as well as some tampons and merchandise. Their panties range between $24 and $39.

They essentially work by absorbing blood. They wick the blood away from your body, so it doesn’t feel like you’re sitting in blood (as many people wonder).

On the Thinx website, it says, “Thinx is made up of four bits of tech that makes ‘em anti-microbial, moisture-wicking, absorbent, and leak-resistant.”

Essentially, this means: “The top layer fights bacteria and absorbs any liquid into the über thin layer right beneath it, so you always stay dry (and fly, obvi).”

They add: “And no, they don’t feel like diapers, and it’s not like sitting in your own blood. Boom.”

Each different style of underwear can hold different amounts of blood (from half a tampon to two tampons’ worth). The majority of the styles come in either a black or a nude version. Some styles come in different colors as well.

They are machine-washable – you just have to rinse them in cold water, run them through the washing machine, and allow them to air-dry. They do take a while to dry due to the consistency of the material.

Have you ever tried period-proof underwear? Do you think you ever would?
