Jessica Williams speaks with Sgt. Jasmine Jacobs about Army regulation AR 670-1

Jessica Williams and Travon (one of the staff writers) do it again!

Yeah. This is the problem. And it’s not just a problem in the army - school dress codes also often discriminate against natural African hair. This is racism, specifically it’s an aspect of the kind of racism that says that African hair is inferior to Caucasian hair - as opposed to simply being different.

It’s complete and utter bullshit. I’m glad they’re spotlighting this.

What everyone needs to know is that this IS NOT NEW. I remember being in orientation for my job at the DoD in 2009 and talking to a black female Air Force (I think) member. She said it was an open secret that no black woman with natural hair would ever be promoted.

So at least women have something to fight back against now. Before, it was just understood, so you knew you weren’t getting promoted because of your hair, but nobody actually came out and said that.

Either way, it’s fucking sickening.

Q&A: BB CREAM 101
Get the basics on the busiest cream in the biz.
Here are some clues BB creams might be for you. You love how a tinted moisturizer pulls double duty. Waiting for your serum to sink in before applying moisturizer has you drumming your fingers. Saturday errands rarely inspire you to put on a full face, but still, you want something…Sound familiar? Well, these five-in-one multitaskers offer benefits that run the gamut from skin care to makeup and are arguably your best defense against forgetfulness, laziness, and impatience when it comes to your complexion. Below, we outline the ABCs of BBs including how to put these busybodies to work for your specific skin type. MELISSA LANE
Q: What does BB stand for? A: Beauty balm.  
Q: What does a BB cream do? A: This one-stop-shop complexion perfector delivers treatment, moisturizer, primer, SPF, and coverage in one overachieving balm.
Q: Where did it come from?A: BBs were created in the 1960s by a German dermatologist to protect and heal the delicate skin of her post-operation patients. With enough coverage to work as a tinted primer or foundation—in addition to a slew of other benefits—they were reconceptualized as a beauty product around 1985 in Japan and South Korea, where it was endorsed by celebrities and dubbed “the secret of Korean actresses.”   
Q: How do I wear it?A: Think of it the same way you do coverage (with bonus skincare benefits!). You can wear it alone for light coverage, or use it as a primer and layer it with your favorite foundation for fuller coverage.
Q: Any tips for oily or combination skin?A: Use it as a primer to boost your makeup’s staying power and control shine. You can also get an edge by selecting a BB specifically formulated for oily and combination skin. 
Q: Any tips for dry skin?A: If your skin needs a boost of hydration, apply a BB right after your favorite moisturizer for both the extra skin benefits and a subtle tint.
Q: How much should I apply?A: BBs are concentrated, so a pea-size amount is plenty.
