if you’re here, it’s probably because you’ve been following natural hair problems on tumblr. as the site grew, i started getting a LOT of questions from folks following–everything from product suggestions & what i personally use, to advice on how to deal with a boyfriend who hates natural hair. i want to answer them, but don’t want to clutter the tumblr with a bunch of text posts, so i decided to make this quick blog to store them in.
so consider this an official introduction! hi!
i’m known to the internets as brokey mcpoverty. i started natural hair problems on a whim in the midst of an intense day of boredom and procrastination. i’m a writer. i write here & here, and here in February. i’ve been natural for three years & am still product obsessed and in search of a hairstyle that i can actually do.
i occasionally do product reviews, contests and giveaways at my main site; i also wrote one tutorial after getting lots of questions on twitter about the one hairstyle i can do, and will soon be selling t-shirts! like the NHP tumblr, i didn’t want hair stuff to take over my main site, so i’ll be putting those posts here from now on as well.
so if you’re new to the world of brokey mcpoverty, welcome! if you’re a hair-obsessed reader of the site who has found his/her way here, hey girl hey! come here for reviews, giveaways, answers to your questions, and that dry bantu knot-out tutorial vid that im (supposedly) gonna do. to kick things off, let’s start with a giveaway!
