So here I am 3 years of locs ( where did time go?). My locs are falling down my back and getting longer by the style and I’m holding my head a bit higher than the year before. I’m learning so much about myself on the daily and relishing in each new experience that comes my way. While I can’t wait to see where my locs fall next year, surprisingly, I’ve been thinking of wearing less styles this year. I’ve been feeling so light and carefree that I want my locs to feel the same. So we’ll see. I’m learning that life is full of surprises. xoxo
What In The Edges is going on?!? I thought I had heard it all when I heard that Eco Styler Gel could contain an ingredient that causes cancer! Ive read a few articles and watched a few videos.
I don’t know about you but the labels on most products are like reading chinese and I have no idea what the stuff listed really is unless i google it. But thanks to the natural curly community online I was able to find out exactly what is in one of our favorite gel.
According to natural beauty vlogger, AlopeciaFreeWithJass, Eco Styler Gel does contain an agent that is known to cause cancer. In a YouTube video she breaks down the ingredients in the popular gel and came across one troubling one, Tetrasodum EDTA.
Tetrasodum is known for causing allergic reactions and is also linked to causing cancer if used. This ingredient is also said to contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Additionally, according to the “U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Cosmetics Ingredient Review (CIR), triethanolamine is best suited for products that should be washed off after application.”
Of course, smaller amounts of Tetrasodum are safe but are you willing to take the risk?
It Aint Safe …. It Aint Safe! Sadly everything causes cancer these days. I havent used gel in years but this is a reminder i dont need too. Hicks does magic on my edges.
If you’re like me, rocking a Karl Kani jacket or jeans from the iconic streetwear label back in the day meant you were the bomb and your fashion was tight.
With the resurgence of ‘90s trends in fashion, Karl Kani, which was launched in 1989 by Carl Williams (aka one of the founding fathers of streetwear), is teaming up with the UK brand PrettyLittleThing on a capsule collection. It’s also the first-ever brand collaboration for PrettyLittleThing.
Karl Kani and PrettyLittleThing have booked the ever-stylish singer Teyana Taylor to model looks from the 45-piece collection.
The collection incorporates Karl Kani’s logo and the brand’s signature stripes, and features various pieces including T-shirt dresses, crop tops, bodysuits, denim jackets and shorts and more streetwear-inspired pieces.
Considering the singer’s personal style, Taylor was definitely made for this for this collection. Other celebrities who have already been spotted wearing the collection include Missy Elliott and Karrueche Tran.
The collection ranges in price from $15 to $60, and is available at PrettyLittleThing.com NOW.
