These are the 5 benefits of a @fadeitbymahogany beard cleanse 😉

1. A high-quality beard wash ensures the health of the skin and beard.

2. It's a great way to help maintain the natural sebum oils within your hair.

3. Dry, itchy and flaky skin starts with how you wash and moisturize your skin and beard. Proper care & consistency will help reduce skin irritation, especially if you have naturally dry skin or skin conditions like eczema.

4. Facial Massage Promotes Blood Circulation to your hair's follicles 
5. This will result in time and money saved in the long run, plus a healthier, better looking and softer beard!

I don't post things like this to "dwell on the past" but rather to actually provide context of what level of healing our communities need as a whole. This ish runs deep. 
As horrific as this title sounds, the occurrences described and not yet publicized were very real for VERY REAL mothers, fathers, siblings, grandparents, etc. So when we talk about broken families of today, think about the level of brokenness we are starting from. And certainly remember how people still had to go to work and provide, still play with their children...all whilst constantly being targeted. 
Pain, suffering, fear, hopelessness passed down from generation to generation.

Tell me how trying to navigate and survive back then would have little effect on how we interact with each other today. We try to combat a system without a full understanding...not even just understanding...empathizing of what actually happened to our families. 
And so we get our history from disconnected teachers and current events from disconnected reporters and thus we are disconnected from how deep our pain runs and just how much compassion we need to have for our own people. Because without it, it's easy to dismiss it as simply the past and then never make the connection as to why we are where we are.

There are levels to this...

Who else mixes their Buttercup powder?😁 If you prefer a less yellow pigmentation  why not try the Buttercup LIGHT for a softer more translucent look 😍😍

“I’m one of the oldheads around here,” says Glen Ettienne, owner of De Lux Gallery (@deluxegallerysalon), a natural hair salon in Fort Greene. Reminiscing back to 2000 — when he moved to Brooklyn from his native Trinidad, then working as a barber at a salon called Black Roots — he describes a pre-gentrified Fort Greene vibrant with Black-owned businesses and a thriving community of young writers, musicians, filmmakers, actors and visual artists. “A lot of trendsetting stuff was going on,” says Glen, 50. “People weren’t wearing name brands too tough; they had their own thing. And a lot of those people wore their hair natural, when it was not otherwise common to see that walking down the street.” Inspired by the neighborhood, Glen changed his repertoire from fades and shape-ups to loc care and maintenance. In 2006, he opened De Lux Gallery, a unisex salon catering to healthy natural hair in all styles. || 704 Fulton St. || Photo by Curt Saunders (@cosmicinsanity) for Black-Owned Brooklyn #deluxgallery #brooklynboheme #blackownedbrooklyn
