Renee’s Corner: Why Dads Are Our Greatest Motivators

“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person. He believed in me.” -Jim Valvano As you know, this month was extremely special to Uncle Funky’s Daughter as we celebrated dads all month! It’s important to shed light on the men in our lives (and on our feeds)!

Daddy-Daughter Haircare with @ThisIsKeithJacobs

There’s a common misconception that the mamas solely have the responsibility to wash, prepare and style the kids’ hair in today’s household.

Defying Disability and Defining Dreams

“I grew up always wanting to model and act, but I was always told it wouldn’t be an avenue for me.” Women of color find that brands haven’t always taken the initiative to represent them and their dollar when it comes to marketing and promoting their products. It always seems to be more of a hassle, and now that we’ve become more visible in marketing and branding, the only place we can go from here is up. Our Funky Junky Feature for this month is one of those women. Tatiana is a gorgeous, thriving model and actress living the life Read More

Renee’s Corner: Busy Mom Breakdown

  Life as a hard-working mom can be exciting and overwhelming all in one breath. We spend so much time caring for others, in all aspects, that we have to strategically plan getting ourselves together every. single. day. This applies to our hair care routines, too! I have three young daughters myself, twin girls (now age five!) and my youngest who’s two — all of whom need their hair done night and day. (PLUS my son who’s curls also need a little love too!) But this article isn’t about them! I just want to share how I keep my own hair Read More

Are You Conditioning Enough?

As we begin to transition into summer weather, a lot of us naturalistas find it fitting to rejuvenate our curls for the heat ahead. It’s extremely important to prepare our curls for the (new) stress they’re about to endure in the summer months, and it’s necessary to switch up or add to our routines. One way to do that is by deep conditioning. Deep conditioning is important because…well…life happens. Our hair is constantly exposed to sunlight, humidity, moisture, and other elements. Not to mention, we just do stuff to it — color it, blow dry it and sometimes straighten it with Read More

When Life Gives You Flowers, Put Them In Your Hair!

Being a woman in this day and age requires a lot of internal strength. Women are required to know themselves, know the world and know that beauty is coveted but not required. Since Uncle Funky’s Daughter is part of the booming beauty industry, we often focus on the external entities of beauty, and work to empower women from the outside in. Embracing our natural hair is one of the things that help us exude confidence in who we really are. We’d say blogger, Kayla Janelle would agree. “What do I love about being a woman? Everything,” she said. “We are Read More
