Should Loc's Be Reserved for Adults Only? Should Children be Prohibited From Having the Style?

The other night I was in the Chat room here on NatSun and the question came up as to whether or not children should have Loc's. Out of the members in the room, I was in the minority with the opinion that children should be able to have the style.

One of the participants in the discussion who is against children with Loc's said that it should not be a decision made by the parent and imposed on the child and that having Loc's was an adult decision.

I've never thought of it… Continue

Fashion Forward Monday | From Sexy to Modesty?! Lunch With the First Lady?

     Lately I have been feeling a desire to go to the next level of modesty with in my style of dress. When I first got saved, I went from party girl, sexy wear which consisted of very high hem lines and very low neck lines, to where I am currently. But even my clothes now have begun to bother me. I think they could be less tight and even more conservative.It was that mindset which inspired the items I purchased during my …

Are You A Natural Snob? I AM!!!

What exactly is a Natural Snob? Well here is what one looks like (down there _vvvv_)

And before you go jumping to conclusions, let me tell you what I am referring to. When I did my Big Chop I threw out all of my Victoria's Secret and Bath and Body works, all my perfumes and everything! Why? Because I wanted to…

Fashion Forward Monday| Why I Thrift Shop

On the same day I did my Big Chop, I emptied my closet of the shoes, purses, dresses, perfumes and everything else. Sound dramatic? For me, it was necessary. Why?!

Because I was a slave to fashion, and not in a good way! All of my money went to Forever 21, Bakers Shoes and any other place that had the cutest, trendiest…

The Natural Hair Acceptance Movement | How NATSUN Fits In | How You Fit In {Part 1 of 3}

As many of you know, I am very passionate about Natural Hair and the Natural Hair Acceptance Movement. I am in no way anti-relaxer just pro- Natural. Whenever I talk about being Natural, of course I am referring to hair, but it is so much more than that. One thing at a time though :D.

Natural Hair Started Me on this Path, And I Love it!

Where I am right now, learning to accept myself the way God made me, and I mean really accept myself, was all enabled when I took the first step and did my Big Chop (BC). It is hard to explain, but learning to love my hair has given me permission to love other aspects of myself. 


For example, I have…

Going Natural Changed My Life! | Waking Up

Going natural changed my life. Or better put, going natural put me on the path that led to a new and improved, better me!  I recently had a conversation with a barber. (On the Couch fans know what a big deal that was!) The conversation evolved into me giving my two cents on how he could improve his business, which led to the statement from him, “I wish more women would embrace their natural hair.”                                                                                                …

Wear Your Hair Unapologetically Even to the Point of Boldness!

Thursday, a fellow Sister in Christ and I, had a conversation about my decision to grow out my hair. Our talk was much needed and gave me a positive mental boost in the right direction.


Prior to talking to her,  I was berating myself for the emotional reaction I was having to the upcoming change in my hair. I felt  I…
