The Rave About Dominican Blowout aka DBO or Doobie

Hello my natural bunnies!

I hope you all have had a wonderful November so far. I haven't posted in a while, and I'm sorry for being MIA. Today's blog is about the Dominican Blowout aka DBO or Doobie. The DBO is gaining a steady notoriety among African American (AA) women, and much to the chagrin of AA hair salons. The other day I heard a story on NPR about this and I was like, "Wow, are you serious?"

I asked my beautician Kat if she was aware of the DBO, and she had never heard of it, so I sent her a YouTube video of what the process entails. It does require a lot of heat to the hair. After Kat viewed the video she felt that the current status of my hair just isn't ready for that. You can check it out for yourself by going to YouTube and searching Dominican Blowout. The results are amazing, but I must say proceed with caution as there is heavy heat used to the hair.

Also, I wanted to let you know that I have created a channel on YouTube called ChisomWrites. I thought this might be a better one stop shop to post videos about my natural hair journey, and also recite to you my poetic thoughts on life. Talk to ya soon!
