When I started GirlWithNoCable I had many goals in mind. I wanted to learn about my kinky hair texture, I wanted to share what I learned, techniques and products that worked. More though, I wanted to inspire black women, those with my hair texture or different, to love themselves, to believe in themselves, and to … More Ageno’s Sweet Things Product Review
Hi Queens! I posted this look on my Instagram (give me a follow at GirlWithNoCable for daily natural hair posts and brown girl inspiration) and asked if you guys would like a tutorial. I unfortunately didn’t film it, but that’s not going to stop me from sharing! I got this pack of hair from…wait for … More Faux Bun and Curly Bang Tutorial
It’s been awhile since my last blog post. The past two months have been crazy! With a big move, learning a different city and meeting new people, it’s been hard getting back into the swing of things…and by things I mean writing and my blog, which I dearly miss. Enough of the ‘pity party’, I’m … More Say Yes to Carrots?
Now, this is not to say I haven’t enjoyed an MTV True Life or WE TV Bridezillas weekend binge before, but after a 5 year relationship ended, I moved out and into a new apt with nothing but my dog, laptop and extensive shoe collection. First month, last month and security in New York is … More You Really Don’t Have Cable?!

He came out and I literally had a bag of my hair on the floor. While he was initially mad … More Big Chop Diary

To be honest, we didn’t plan it that way, it sort of just happened…in a weird convenient (and very tiring) way. I … More Sunday Funday
Can’t believe it’s been six months since declaring my natural hair and only four months since my Big Chop! Even though I still get insecure about my short hair, I have never been happier, prouder or this involved in my hair and its health. I don’t think I’ll ever miss having permed straight hair. I … More Six Month Natural Hair Update
3 months in and I have yet to regret my big chop and starting my journey of natural, healthy hair. Other than becoming a self-proclaimed product junkie ($$$$), the ease of my morning routine, developing the confidence needed to rock a TWA and actually seeing my hair grow have been well worth the initial trauma. … More Working Out With Natural Hair
