Celebrity News

Cardi B's hair is growing and flowing and she is giving up her hair secrets. The "Money" rapper took to Twitter on Nov. 13 to give fans an update on her hair progress.

"So I've been so consistent with my hair mask routine and drinking alkaline water, and look how much my hair has grown! I was so scared of my hair falling out after my son's birth because I'd been growing it for years now, so I made sure to keep up with it and I actually gain hair," she tweeted.


While many people praised her, she also received backlash from folks who believed that her long hair was simply due to genetics. The Bronx-bred artist is Dominican and Afro-Trinidadian.

But in typical Cardi B fashion, the star clapped back and tweeted, "ItS gEnEtICS! No it's proper hair maintenance. I have a hair texture that requires lots of love and maintenance.This pictures show my hair from childhood, high school & adult hood and since I started takin care of my hair the right way it has grown TREMENDOUSLY!"

She further elaborated on her hair journey on Instagram by showing her hair growth from her childhood days to now and made it clear that she wanted to inspire others with similar hair textures that they too can grow long and healthy hair.

"Why everytime I post my natural hair I hear 'you're MIXED you're supposed to have long hair'?" she wrote, "That's not true and very misleading. I been posting pics of my hair journey for years and being mixed don't mean your hair is always long and curly, that wasn't my case."

Further along she wrote, "I want women of color with tighter curl patterns to know that you don't have 'BAD HAIR' there's no such thing as bad hair. And 'good' hair don't mean a certain texture. ALL HAIR IS GOOD."

She ended her post by writing, "Check out my pinned story 'HAIR DAY' and I can't wait to show ya more of my hair care routines."

It looks like some fans took her advice as they began sharing videos of themselves doing Cardi's DIY hair mask.

The hair mask includes avocado, eggs, mayo, banana, argan oil, castor oil, and honey and according to Cardi and fans who tried it, the results are amazing.

The star also said that she uses the mask on her daughter Kulture's hair.

Gabrielle Union is not here for the label stepparent. While she became a stepparent after marrying Dwyane Wade in 2014, that doesn't mean that she wants to be defined by it. The actress spoke about the dislike of that term during her appearance on Glennon Doyle's "We Can Do Hard Things" podcast.

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"

I didn't want to say that I was having bad luck. That's not something I'd ever want to speak into existence over my life. But I will say something wasn't right. I had a few coins stacked in my purse from a one-time project as well as from an ongoing one. Then I received emails from not one but two publications within days apart asking me if I'd like to contribute a few articles every week. Opportunities and money were flowing in. If you follow the law of attraction, you'd say I was vibrating on a high frequency.

Tinashe has learned a lot about her mental health while growing up in the entertainment industry. The singer/songwriter began dancing at four years old and had her first movie role at five years old.

My favorite time of the year is the start of the official boot season which begins during the transitional period between summer and fall. What's most exciting about the sudden drop in temperatures is stepping back into those sleek pair of boots for the first time in months. Whether zipping up oldies but goodies or investing in a new fall 2021 boot trend, this year is all about the calf boot. Specifically, this is the best option when easing your summer clothes into the appropriate fall looks.
