Let’s face it, short haircuts are not only sexy on women but mainly, they’re so easy to maintain.  Although black hair care and hair care products have come such a long way, many black women have not only been wearing their hair naturally but short as well and it looks good!  It is also a simple solution to the same age-old problem many of us may still have.

It’s funny how the economy has affected even the simplest things in our lives.  Having the means to go to the hair salon every two weeks or as often as needed has become a challenge for some.  Standing in front of the mirror doing your own is not only time consuming but also tiring when you have long hair.  There are other challenges black women face: trusting someone to do your hair right or the way you want it; moving to a new city/state where black hair care and/or products are almost impossible to find; finding someone who truly knows what they’re doing or losing your one and only hairstylist.  Black women also do not have the luxury of going to just any hair stylist or salon.  No wash and go here.  Some or all of these challenges have moved black women away from caring about having that super straight, long hair look into something more manageable, sexy yet stylish and also very professional, all in one.

Now some women don’t wear short hair well, some are afraid to go short and some are forced to be short or have no hair at all but how wonderful it is for black women to have the versatility and variety and to have come as far as we have.

There are so many short hairstyles to choose from; short, wild, funky or elegant and many variations such as the “short bob,” the “blunt bob,” the “asymmetrical bob” and the “angled bob.”  There’s the short “spiky” look, short “curly” look and the “wavy” look to only name a few.

Whatever the style, whatever the choice, whatever the reason, you wear it well!

13 Simple Hair loss tips that worked for mehttp://urbaneventsaz.com/13-simple-hair-loss-tips-that-worked-for-me/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=13-simple-hair-loss-tips-that-worked-for-me http://urbaneventsaz.com/13-simple-hair-loss-tips-that-worked-for-me/#comments Mon, 07 Apr 2014 18:25:05 +0000 http://urbaneventsaz.com/?p=12318 images (6)

They always say not to rub your hair dry. This is a common one. We have mentioned a few practices you can follow that will help reduce your hair fall prominently. Some of these things that will help:

  • Be soft on your wet hair. It is advisable not to rub your hair dry and avoid combing through them. Your hair is prone to breaking when wet, and soon you will have a bunch of falling hair and regret.

  • Clean your combs as using a dirty comb is one of the reasons that lead to hair loss as well. Taking a bath or shampooing each week is necessary to control hair loss.

  • Massaging the scalp regularly stimulates the blood flow which in turn promotes the growth of hair , better health and less hair loss

  • Expose your hair to a minimum of heat treatment as you can. The heat makes the shaft dry, which leads to dry and frizzy hair. Over a period of time, your hair turns brittle which will ultimately result in hair loss.

  • Use cold water or water at room temperature instead of hot water. If you have dry and frizzy hair when you walk out of the shower, it means the water was too hot for your hair.

  • Instead of opting for an boutique parlor treatment, use natural products that are safe and produce no side effects

  • You have always heard about this cliché’ that when you are healthy inside will your hair be healthy too. This is true. There are a few things you can add to your diet. Proteins are essential along with the vitamin group that includes Vitamin A, B complex, C, and E. Vitamin B is most popularly known for its importance in the hair growth and hair loss control while Vitamin C prevents premature graying. You will find anemic women suffering from maximum hair fall. Well, that is because of deficiency of iron in their diet.

  • Get some sweat. Thats right, you need to work out as this increases the blood flow through the body that helps in stimulation of the scalp.

  • Hot oil treatments is the best answers to the problem of hair loss. The tradition of oiling the hair has started from ancient India.

  • Cut down on your coffee habit. Caffeine depletes the body of its  natural resources of nutrients, and that includes the  nutrients required for hair. Switch to an alternative to coffee and move on to something more healthy.

  • Stay hydrated with a lot of water

  • Keep the scalp clean and as far as possible away from chemicals. Use a shampoo that is mild. Use a mild shampoo and keep the scalp clean, and as far as possible from chemicals.

  • Trim your hair regularly to avoid split ends.

Saturday, April 19, 2014, 8 p.m.

Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts

(SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.) – Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts will present the Grammy Award-winning Soweto Gospel Choir on Saturday, April 19, at 8 p.m.

Tickets are available for $39, $49 and $69 through www.ScottsdalePerformingArts.org or (480) 499-TKTS (8587).

Celebrating the unique inspirational power of African gospel music, the Soweto Gospel Choir has become an international musical phenomenon, bringing its heartfelt message of love, joy and hope to audiences around the world. The Choir draws on the best talent from the many churches in and around Soweto. Its exuberant vocal performances, athletic dance numbers and traditional attire create an unforgettable concert experience.

Founded in 2002, the Soweto Gospel Choir quickly earned widespread acclaim when its first single, Voices of Heaven, reached No. 1 on Billboard’s World Music Chart. In 2006, the Choir performed as invited guests at the 75th birthday celebration of its patron, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, in front of an audience that included former President Nelson Mandela, Samuel L. Jackson, Alfre Woodard and Carlos Santana. The Choir has made television appearances on ConanLeno and The Today Show, and has garnered two American Gospel Music Awards in 2003 and the Grammy Award for “Best Traditional World Music Album” two years in a row: in 2006 for Blessed and in 2007 for African Spirit.

The Soweto Gospel Choir recently released its fifth album, Divine Decade (Decca), a celebration of the ensemble’s past 10 years of artistic collaborations and accolades, and embarked on a major U.S. tour honoring the life and legacy of the late Nelson Mandela, who was a friend of the Choir.

Divine Decade showcases the wonderful diversity of the group’s style as a gospel choir that sings across all genres of music. Opening with an address from Archbishop Tutu, the recording features collaborations with a wide range of guest artists that exhibit the Choir’s breadth of repertoire, from U2 and Robert Plant to Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Among the featured tracks are the Choir’s popular hits such as Sedilaka, Sarah McLachlan’s Angel, The Jackson 5’s I’ll Be There and the Fish Out of Water remix of Put On Your Boots, its collaboration with U2.

DELIVERING DEMOCRACY LECTURE featuring Forest Whitaker Apr. 24http://urbaneventsaz.com/delivering-democracy-lecture-featuring-forest-whitaker-apr-24/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=delivering-democracy-lecture-featuring-forest-whitaker-apr-24 http://urbaneventsaz.com/delivering-democracy-lecture-featuring-forest-whitaker-apr-24/#comments Tue, 04 Mar 2014 06:25:12 +0000 http://urbaneventsaz.com/?p=11969
Forest Whitaker
DATE April 24, 2014
6:30pm
Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church; 1401 E. Jefferson Street, Phoenix
csrd.asu.edu/deliveringdemocracy

The word “democracy” is one of the most recognized, venerated, and misunderstood terms in the English language. Its potential, however, has yet to be fully realized, because it is routinely distorted, misjudged and exploited. In order for American democracy to flourish and expand, its origins, evolution, and potency must be interpreted, discussed, and practiced by everyday people, scholars, and visionaries from various walks of life.

The inaugural ASU Center for the Study of Race and Democracy’s Delivering Democracy lecturer, featuring Academy Award winning actor and decorated humanitarian, Forest Whitaker, will treat the 6th largest city in the United States to a timely and creative discussion of the promise of American Democracy. Whitaker is one of the world’s most accomplished actors, directors, producers and community activists, and when chosen as a UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador, their leading U.S. diplomat stated Forest Whitaker was considered “the perfect choice” because … “He exemplifies compassion in every area of his life, with humility and grace. He does this because it’s the right thing to do” particularly in his work with youth in emerging and expanding democracies. Please do not miss this signature event featuring one of the most celebrated and insightful people of our age.
