Viola Davis: My Husband Encourages Me to Go Wigless

 

Daughter Genesis is still getting used to seeing mom Viola Davis without her wigs, but the actress is covering up less and less these days, thanks to some encouragement from her husband.

Speaking to InStyle.com during a private dinner party in Los Angeles recently, Davis recounted a message from hubby Julius Tennon. “He said, ‘If you want to wear it for your career, that’s fine, but in your life wear your hair. Step into who you are,’” she said. “It’s a very powerful statement.”

A 2oz Sample is NOT enough!

Can’t say how many times I’ve heard that and I have to admit that at one point even I was saying the same thing.  I started having conversations with a lot of companies (demanding more) and they sent me 2 oz to TRY.  They promised me two uses out of the sample.  I didn’t believe them but figured I’d give it a try because if I’m doing this for you, I have to know that this sample is enough.  I had long “Solange” braids in at the time and I used a SAMPLE PACK (everything 2 oz) and figured I’d attempt to wash my hair … Guess what?  I used the sample pack TWO WEEKS in a row and STILL had product left over.

Which takes me to this post by The Mane Source:

HOW do I get a SUBSCRIPTION?!

 

When we launched this service we tried our BEST to explain that it is a service for a LIMITED number of subscribers (for now).  We open up the subscriptions ONCE a month to inviting you to come join the party.  The only thing is, we have have no control over who becomes a member and who doesn’t.  The ones that become member are “in the know” and read all of the emails and updates so they know when we open our list.  The subs usually sell out pretty fast.  The last time we opened them we had 100+ in the first hour.

We’ve seen Viola many times in what I’m guessing is a wig but when I caught these pics of her on the internet over the weekend I gasped.  Can you say GORGE?!   Jamika Wilson appears to be her regular stylist and I’m really curious to know what she used on her hair for this shoot and what some of her go-to products are.  Jamika if you hear us, give us a call!

My Hairstory. How I got to curlBOX.

I remember getting my first relaxer at 6 years old and the sigh of relief that my Mother and I both had once it was done.  She would no longer tug uncontrollably on my hair and I wouldn’t have to DEAL WITH IT!  I was so happy to be able to wet my hair and be gone.  I still have nothing against relaxers to this day … I’ve seen women grow healthy hair down their backs with relaxers.

During college I stopped getting relaxers because my stylist in the Bay Area (Brownie! What up?!) used to do amazing hair without relaxers and she talked me into not getting one … So I did.

My hair went through many stages.  I stopped getting relaxers but I was getting it pressed to the HILLS!

That’s me on the right at my class reunion.  That’s my bud Mo’ on the left. 🙂  I had a press and a few tracks in that pic.
