I saw this image at Woman In the Jungle and I just had to share it. It was such an inspiring photoshoot and shows off what Afro beauty truly looks like. I can see how this image makes me want to shave my hair off but I won’t!

Janelle Monae changed her look!

I don’t think I have ever seen an Afro-Mohawk and a skirt on at the same time on Janelle Monae! This is from her new video with Miguel. This makes me want to go to the salon and change up my look as soon as possible!

Janelle Monae & That Incredible Hair

It’s been a while everyone – I am sorry for the lack of posts and updates. I took this screencap from the interview she did with the Breakfast Club that you can watch here. Janelle is a visual Black Forest digital cupcake – stunning, devastating and just you want more and more of it. I feel like she has really switched up her look.

Watch the interview – even her creamy Southern accent makes her hair pop even harder!

I haven’t felt inspired recently because being bogged down by work and my business but her whole look here just inspired the hell out of me.

I’m back.

What do you think of this look?

New Cornrows for August 2013

Cornrows 1

These are some new cornrows that I had done last week – I was trying to go for a zig zag look but I don’t think the stylist knew what she was doing. It’s like stylists these days have lost the art of cornrowing hair!

Pretty sad!



Welcome to the new Charcoal Ink

Hi everyone,

As you can see, Charcoal Ink looks a bit different and wasn’t updated for about a week. That’s because Miyan & I decided to host Charcoal Ink on its own, away from For around 6 years, Charcoal Ink has been on so it was a long slog to get all of the posts and Cialis images updates onto its own platform. It was not easy and it is going to take a while longer but please stick with us!

The website is still updating but we are so thrilled with the new look of Charcoal Ink.

What do you think of our new look and changes? We’d love to know what you think!

The art of jealousy & money : thoughts on Rae Dawn Chong

Rae Dawn Chong & Oprah

I am sure you guys have heard about RDC’s comments about Oprah and comparing her to being a field n/gger. I mean this is a totally crazy thing to see about Oprah and while I am not African-American, I think it’s crazy that she would go after Oprah. To me, her comments were totally filled with hgh height growth jealousy.

Do you think RDC was jealous of Oprah and her glittering success or could she be right that O is an egomaniac? Whatever the response, I don’t think she should have gone after Oprah like that – you can have your opinion but you better have a background to back that shit up.

What do you think about the situation?

I would love to hear your opinions and let me know if you want to see more videos :)
