It made the three bundles in my head look more like five when I used this thing the first time, I kid you not. Also gives your hair a really natural shine. I only use it when I really need a volume boost, otherwise it’s just too much. No Drought Dry Shampoo If you have a weave, you need this stuff. Period. A lot of times, the natural oils in our scalps (referring to my fellow black women here) are too heavy for Brazilian, Peruvian, etc hair, and so it’s easy for weave to get weighed down between washes. Shake this stuff in your hair, brush it out - bam, flow city. ( more in the comments

 What you got made fun of in school for?
 graatrunk
 i went into american public school for 6th
 grade and i pierced someone's scrotum with a
 fencing foil that was missing the little rubber
 safety tip on the end by accident in gym
 and it was middle school so i was promptly
 nicknamed "The Nut Slayer" and i cried until
 my parents let me move back to europe and
 live with my grandparents

Anaconda, Billboard, and Facts: nickiminaj I see ppl remixing my words so let me post "exactly" what I said for the intelligent ones in the back Now, if you can find the part where I said "l made female rappers mainstream", I'll give you $100,000.00. blogs & tv shows don't care to do actual research these days, they only care about what grabs your attention. at anyone's expense Imagine me saying I made female rappers mainstream when there were so many women who already had platinum albums under their belts. Lauryn sold 10 million off one album, Eve had platinum singles w/Alicia, Gwen Stefani, her own tv show & clothing line. It doesn't get more mainstream/ pop than Missy's biggest singles. Foxy&Kim had platinum albums & shaped the sound of NY female rappers, Latifah had her own sitcom, Trina was on billboard with hits, etc- I appreciate the love but I never said that.ガ20潍now what I DID say is right here for anyone w/their own brain to decipher words on their own. I know it's hard in the social media band wagon era, but try. It's fun. . When I came out, there had been a drought of a few years where NO female rap album had gone platinum, females weren't getting budgets, the industry did NOT believe in the female rapper anymore. They had stopped generating MONEY for labels. Ask any rap historian or just anyone with a brain. These are facts and nothing but the facts. So l "REINTRODUCED" the "successful" female rapper back to POP CULTURE. Showed big business we were major players in the game just like the boys were. V ソ@ love you guys for holding me down but what's true is true & whats not is just simply not. ︶ update your blogs & tv shows with what I actually said please G9(ヴ.

Animals, Children, and Driving: THIS MAN DRIVES AROUND KENYA DELIVERING THOUSANDS OF GALLONS OF WATER TO ANIMALS DYING OF THIRST. PATRICK KILONZO MWALUA REGULARLY VISITS THE TSAVO, WHERE SEVERE DROUGHT THREATENS THE LIVES OF BUFFALO ANTELOPE, ZEBRAS, AND ELEPHANTS. HE SAYS HE'LL CONTINUE PROVIDING WATER EACH WEEK UNTIL IT RAINS AND HE HOPES SPREADING THE WORD WILL HELP FIND A PERMANENT SOLUTION. In a land as parched as Kenya's Tsavo West National Park, no visitor arrives with more fanfare than the water man. That would be Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua. And when he rumbles down the dusty road bearing some 3,000 gallons of fresh water, the elephants, buffalo, antelope and zebras come running. They've come to know the water man by the rumble of his engine. And his lifesaving cargo. "There is completely no water, so the animals are depending on humans," Mwalua tells The Dodo. "If we don't help them, they will die." Mwalua fills the bone-dry watering holes in the region, driving for hours on end every day to haul water to where it's most desperately needed. The holes themselves, lined with concrete, often need cleaning - Mwalua blames it on buffalo droppings - and sometimes, he will just hose down an area of cracked earth for the grateful animals. Between road trips, Mwalua runs a conservation project called Tsavo Volunteers. The 41-year-old also visits local schools to talk to children about the wildlife that is their legacy. Last year, Mwalua started renting a truck and driving water to several locations in Tsavo West. His mission would extend to several trucks, keeping him on the road for hours every day as he drives dozens of hard miles between stops. "The truck is heavy and doesn't go very fast," he says. "We have to be very patient and go deliver water." Source: https:-www.google.ca-amp-s-www.thedodo.com-amphtml-water-man-kenya-animals-2263728686.html Consciousvibrancy

Food, Life, and Lit: This is what school uniforms looked like in Somalia in 1978 aC @chakabars Despite their noteworthy accomplishments, the educational reforms of the 1970s were not sustained into the 1980s. Like many other popu- lar programs from the early Siyaad era, mass education fell victim to the regime’s preoccupation with natural disasters, war with Ethiopia, and the subsequent refugee crisis. Increasing corruption and nepotism in all agencies of government (including the Ministry of Education) drained resources and enthusiasm from the schools, the teachers, and their pupils. It is instructive to examine what occurred in a few areas of educational and cultural life after 1975, as illustrations of what can go wrong when education is marginalized. • The severe drought of 1973–75 burdened the government with the responsibility of providing food and shelter for the afflicted rural population, but also provided an opportunity to bring education to the countryside. Teachers and high school students were sent out to work with displaced nomads who had been resettled in farm- ing and fishing villages, introducing large numbers of them to the new Somali script for the first time. However, shortages of relevant instructional materials and the nomads’ propensity to abandon their schooling in order to rebuild their herds or to seek out more lucra- tive employment in the Gulf soon eroded the gains of the Rural Lit- eracy Campaign. Mass rural education stagnated in the 1980s. From an (admittedly exaggerated) estimate of 70% rural literacy in 1975, United Nations’ estimates placed the literacy rate at about 25% in 1990, on the eve of the state’s collapse. • While the socialism-inspired reforms of the 1970s won guarded praise from many secular observers, they also alienated some of the country’s important religious leaders. Many of the latter had opposed the government’s choice of Latin script (rather than Arabic) for writing Somali and claimed that “Latiin waa la diin” (Latin is godless). Islamic educators were suspicious that “socialist” educa- tion paid insufficient attention to religion, and that new laws giving women equal inheritance and divorce rights would undermine the traditional authority of the Sharia courts. chakabars lovearmyforsomalia

Beautiful, Life, and Love: Never ignore a person who loves you cares for you and misses you because one day, you might wake up and realize you lost the moon while counting the stars. I'm not sure why but we all do it. Many beings waste years of their lives, chasing after people they can't have, or lifestyles that aren't sustainable, for reasons we don't know. You can't have a person, either they will f*ck with you, or they won't. Nobody is out of your league, they just don't want you in their life. We are all human so we all make mistakes, but a mistake made twice is a choice. Try not to seek the best looking, or those with the most money, for these are superficial ideas and money doesn't make you happy. You make you happy, so if you are in a situation with a person and you have the freedom to choose, but you are unhappy, this is your fault not theirs. Stop wasting your time. Leave the situation. You should be looking for someone who shares sympathetic vibrations. Someone who is on your wavelength, someone who can share the same frequency as you. Everything is a vibration, positive or negative. All elements are made up of atoms. And these are made up of a nucleus, protons (positive), neutrons (no charge) and electrons (negative). Opposites attract but if someone is in a negative space, you being in a positive space, isn't necessarily going to help them and vice versa. You choose your own happiness, as you can choose the people you are around. (Obviously free from war, famine, poverty, drought, oppressive systems of government-religious opinions, disease etc) If you aren't happy within yourself, you can't be truly happy around others. Health is not just physical. I think this is why people love me, because I am happy and I love people. Don't chase waterfalls, on the surface they appear beautiful, but they are usually hiding rocks that will kill you. chakabars
