Klassy Kinks

Hey Ya’ll! my first OFFICIAL post {as a monthly contributor} is on Klassy Kinks today! Click HERE to read it and please feel free to leave your comments and opinions 🙂  I am so happy that the founder and editor of Klassy Kinks has given me the honor of being a monthly contributor to her amazing website. Klassy Kinks is my new favorite natural hair website. It’s right up there with Black Girl Long Hair (BGLH} and The Good Hair Blog 🙂 🙂 I am not just saying that because I am a monthly contributor but because I genuinely like the blog. That is why I wanted to be and asked to be a monthly contributor. Klassy Kinks has recipes, health &fitness, style and so much more! See below for pictures of founder & editor Ijeoma and read her hair story.

Klassy-Kinks.com founder and editor, Ijeoma Eboh, is on a mission to change perceptions of kinky textured hair around the world. Born in Nigeria but growing up in the United States, she remembers being coaxed to sit a little while longer while the relaxer “took” by repeating the mantra “beauty is pain.” After a 15 year relationship with relaxers, Ijeoma decided to grow out her thin, shoulder length wisps of hair simply to see what her God-given hair looked and felt like. She started making YouTube videos shortly after her big chop as a way to chronicle her journey; little did she know that she would come to be a source of knowledge and inspiration for her family, peers, and other women around the world willing to embrace their kinks, naps, and afros. A graduate of Harvard University, Ijeoma is now pursuing a doctoral degree in History and Ethics of Public Health. She is based in New York.

  1. Hi Amma! Great, well-written article over at Klassy Kinks! I too love the blog and not just because Ije and I have mingled & shmoozed at nearly every natural hair event in NYC since the Spring LOL. She’s pretty much awesome-sauce and the blog is a true reflection of what I have come to know about her (although in a short time) as a positive & klassy young woman. I’m proud of her. Well, you’ve got a new follower. 😉 And thanks much for the comments on my posts!

    • Lol at “schmoozed”. Thanks so much Toia! Your positive feedback is very encouraging. And thank you for following my blog. Your welcome for the comments. I love your blog! I saw some pictures of you floating around on Tumblr awhile back and I thought your were FLY! But I didn’t know the source of the pictures because you know sources get lost in Tumblr land. But thankfully I saw your feature on Klassy Kinks and began to follow you 🙂

  3. nice article another blogger I know, who uses the hair type chart and isn’t ashamed of it. People will always turn something that was suppose to be helpful into something negative and for black people, “racist”. I have 4c hair, and that’s all. Telling someone you have tight coily hair doesn’t say much. but labelling something and giving it a name eliminates any assumption. Congrats on being a monthly contributor. I have to say that BGLH is my #1 hairsite, I like to read the controversial posts because I like writing such posts myself 🙂
