He says I look like aunt Jemima and asks if I have to wear a scarf to bed. In fact, he always complains that I go to bed looking like I’m ready for battle. I guess he’s not used to dating a woman who puts on a head tie at night to maintain her ‘do. I have to protect my hair and he just doesn’t understand the huge process it takes to control the crown that Black women don.
Evolve Silky Collection (SRP: $0.99 – $3.49) is a high-quality line dedicated to making affordable and fashionable hair accessories – such as colorful and printed silky scarves and knotted headbands– that Black women can use keep their hairstyles looking like new. Maybe if I go to bed at night with a fancy nighttime satin wrap, he couldn’t complain as much. Then again, maybe not.
In addition to silky scarves with geometrics, wild life, polka dots, and metallics patterns and styles, the line also has brushes, combs and textiles.
The line is available at Walmart, Sally Beauty Supply and Target. Check it out. The brand sent me the Satin Wrap Cap, Wildlife Silky Wrap Scarf and Polka dot Silky Knot Headband. I wear them all — just not at the same time. Remember, ladies NEVER leave the house with your head tie on.
