Halle Berry and her extensions

When Halle Berry, playing the role of Jinx, walked out of the sea in the James Bond film Die Another Day - recreating the scene originally made famous by Ursula Andress in Dr No - men the world over drooled. But that was just one scene in the fantastic movie career of Halle. She began her career as a beauty queen before turning to acting. She received a string of awards for Introducing Dorothy Dandridge and won an Academy Award in 2001 for her performance in Monster's Ball, becoming the first woman of African American descent to have won the award for Best Actress. Other films in which she starred included The Flintstones, Bulworth, Catwoman and the X Men trilogy.

Halle was a victim of domestic violence and now works to help other victims. She once said that her mother had impressed on her that even though she is half black and half white she would be discriminated against in America as a black person. "People will not know when they see you that you have a white mother unless you wear a sign on your forehead. And, even if they did, so many people believe that if you have an ounce of black blood in you then you are black. So, therefore, I decided to let folks categorize me however they needed to," she said.

Halle Berry always looks fantastic and like so many other black women loves and uses hair extensions to help project her image. Best quality hair extenions can be obtained from

Rebecca Ferguson to win X Factor?

One of the favourites to win this year's X Factor is Rebecca Ferguson, a singer with a great voice who was been highly praised by all the judges. Rebecca is a single mother of two from a poor family in Liverpool who says she was bullied at school because she is mixed race. Today's she an inspiration to black women.
She comes across as soft and feminine but this hides a strong assertive side. She is very family orientated and her kids always come first. And she has raised herself above the racism that she suffered and made the most of her strong points - her fabulous voice, beauty and sexy body. She also knows how to change her looks by changing her hair and always looks immaculate.
Like many black women, Rebecca knows that beautiful hair extensions can make all the difference and that she can choose the style that works for her and suits her mood.

Proud to be a Black Woman

Once upon a time many black women were dubious about using hair extensions in case they were accused of trying to make themselves look white by having straight hair. But now that's all changed. Black women have always been adventurous and have tried different looks to help make themselves look good. They embrace their naturally tight curly hair because it gives them an advantage when it comes to changing their look. With hair extensions a black woman can choose the look she wants, whereas European women's hair is often too fine and needs glue. With more and more mixed race people being born, the trend will continue and black women are showing that they are proud to be who they are and what they are.
Just how much times have changed is illustrated by Chris Rock's film Good Hair, which examines the black hair industry in a humorous way but is also a serious look at this booming $9 billion industry. The film looks at beauty salons, barber shops, hair stying conventions and hair laboratories, as well as visiting the places where natural hair extensions actually come from. One of the celebrities taking part in the film is American actress, singer-songwriter, comedienne, dancer, television producer and model Raven-Symone (pictured) who always shows off her hair extensions to good effect.
Like her, any black woman can change her looks on a regular basis and decide what style works for her. The best quality hair extenions can be obtained from So why not take advantage of being a black woman and use your hair extensions to help show off how good you look?

Changing to a fringe

Like many black goddesses, I am a great fan of Brazilian hair extensions. I've had my braids for six months now and they still look great, but it's time for a change. This time I am going to have a weave on as I want to have a fringe for a while. This is a popular look among Afro Caribbean women at the moment and a lot of black celebrities have adopted it, including Alexandra Burke (see photo).I am going to have 32 inch extensions which look really sexy and which I can cut and layer over time to change my look and keep fresh, using Motions, my product of choice, to keep it looking shiny.
A frine helps to show off the facial features and can look great - provided that you use good quality hair extensions. For me, that means Brazilian hair, You can get it from the website, where there is an excellent range of lengths and styles.

Advantages of being a black woman

One of the many advantages of being a black woman is that we have the option of changing our hair styles whenever we feel like it. Any man who dates a black woman will find their friends will be envious because we change our hair so often that they will think they are going out with a succession of gorgeous women - even though there's just one.
With Chris Rock's upcoming movie Good Hair coming out soon in the UK there will be even more attention on the advantages of hair.extensions.  And as we all know, my gorgeous black sisters, European women are getting into the groove. For example Cheryl Cole wears extensions for her advert for L'Oreal.
Here's a photo of the gorgeous Aleisha Dixon - another black woman who knows how to look good by wearing extensions.

Alexandra Burke - brave kidney offer

Hi everyone.
I read that soul sister Alexandra Burke - X Factor winner in 2008 - has offered her kidney to her sick mum, but that her offer has been turned down. Apparently her mother Melissa Bell said 'If you take a kidney from a woman who hasn’t had babies, you take away her chance of a family. That’s more than robbery, it’s downright wicked.’  Melissa rose to fame herself in the 1980s singing with Soul II Soul.
Alexandra is a role model for Afro Caribbean goddesses who love their hair to look good. One way I've found of making my hair extensions look great is by using Motions hair products. They make my hair look light and smooth and I can feel the breeze blowing through my hair as though it's completely natural. When you brush the hair it's like brushing European hair and it gives the hair a naturally fluffy look.
Of course, you need good quality hair extensions to make it look good, and the best hair for Afro Caribbean goddesses is Brazilian hair. You can check it out at

Welcome to Afro Caribbean Hair

Hi and welcome to my new blog - all about Afro Caribbean hair and beauty. I'm a black Goddess and proud of it. I turn heads wherever I go. Let's face it, black Goddesses love their hair to be smooth, silky and absolutely gorgeous. And mine is fantastic.
Afro-Caribbean women invariably take great pride in the way they look and for most, it’s their hair that gets the most attention and which they take the greatest pride in.
There are many techniques and styles that go towards making Afro-Caribbean hair look fantastic and although many of them take time to put in place, the results are well worth the effort. Afro-Caribbean women want to look their best and they are prepared to take the time and effort to achieve it. A fantastic head of hair not only makes them feel great, but boosts their confidence whether they are at work or out on the town.
The best quality hair extensions for Afro-Caribbean women like me come from Virgin hair. This is human hair which is still in its original state and has not been permed, coloured or chemically processed in any way.
It is carefully cut with the cuticle going in the same direction and preserved to maintain its special quality. Of course, obtaining this hair takes time, which accounts for its premium price, but it is of premium quality and is in demand from Afro-Caribbean goddesses who refuse to settle for second best.
Also of a high quality is Remy hair, which has also been cut from a single donor, with the cuticle going in the same direction, but which may have been coloured or permed. Like Virgin hair,  it is usually soft and silky and is popular in making hair extensions.
Afro-Caribbean goddesses like to look different so there are many different styles that they will consider. These include braiding, where strands of hair are weaved together into Cornrows, which are flat braids, or for extensions.
Then there are Dreadlocks, where hair is naturally or through manipulation encouraged to matte and a form a cylindrical, rope-like patter. And there is Weaving, where Wefted hair is attached to a base, or track, and held together by fine threads, either machine wefted or hand tied. Most hair for these extensions is machine wefted in fine, medium or heavy wefts.
Popular in the 1960s and 1970s was the Afro, where the natural hair is picked and moulded into a large, rounded shape, and also popular over a long period are Wigs, where a full cap of hair covers the entire head as a substitute for hair.
Afro-Caribbean hair products and techniques include Clarifying Shampoos, which are designed to remove products, hard water or chlorine residue that build up over time; Heat Clamps, which are used to seal synthetic hair; Relaxer, which is a chemical process by which the hair permanently straightened; Texturiser, which is mild relaxing treatment; and Steaming, which is the process by which most synthetic hair is curled at the factory.
So there are a wide range of ways that Afro-Caribbean women like me can make themselves look their best by making sure their hair looks good.
The problem many experience is: where do I get the best quality hair? The answer can be found at which focuses on the best Brazilian hair for hair extensions – hair that is silky and soft and looks fantastic. This is the hair that makes me look so fabulous. Like many Afro-Caribbean women, I love that ‘celebrity’ look, with long 20 inch, 26 inch or 30 inch Brazilian hair extensions which come down to well below my shoulders, but others prefer shorter wavy Brazilian hair from 14 inches to 18 inches in length, which also looks great.
