Tracee Ellis Ross is launching a new haircare line for biracial and mixed race women who struggle to manage their loose curly hair.

Although mixed race women are envied for their so-called "good hair", most mixed race women say they struggle to maintain their frizzy curls that tangles easily.

Ross has the answer to their problem. The 'Black-ish' star said her new haircare line Pattern Beauty will "fulfill the unmet needs of our community".

Although the line is targeted toward the mixed race community, Black women with a tighter curl pattern than their mixed race sisters can also use Ross' products.

Facet

Instagram model photographer Suliman Facet Hasan sparked controversy on social media when he vowed to stop taking photos of black women who wear lace front wigs in 2018.

Facet urged black women to embrace their beauty by removing their lace front wigs.

In a Snapchat video on Wednesday, a white female friend told Facet that lace fronts are a "sign of insecurity" and black women should grow their own hair by eating more vegetables and drinking more water.

Pop star Nicki Minaj released more photos of her thinning hair on social media yesterday. In photos uploaded to Instagram and Twitter.com, Nicki is seen wet and topless after apparently taking a shower. Many of Nicki's 17 million Twitter followers swooned and admired Nicki's mid-back length. But hair care experts are not impressed.

While cosmetologists applaud Nicki for disposing of her wigs and weaves, they contend that Nicki's ends shows signs of breakage and thinning which can easily be repaired with the proper diet and vitamins.

Terrence Davidson and Nicki Minaj

You may have heard that rapper Nicki Minaj fired her entire Glam squad for making her look like a hot mess these last couple of years. Well, Terrence Davidson, Nicki's wig maker, decided to come forward and clear the air in a letter to his fans (yes, he has fans).

Terrence'e letter reads more like an online resume than clearing the air. He's basically putting the word out that his questionable wig-making skills are available for the right price. But after seeing the disastrous wigs on Nicki, he probably won't get too many job offers.

Maybe Beyonce needs a wig maker who specializes in circus or sideshow style wigs?

Read Terrence's letter after the break.

Here is a comedic take on the late Notorious BIG's hit track "Ten Crack Commandments," titled "Ten Weave Commandments" by @Urbancomedynet. This video is strictly for women whose weave game is in need of serious help. This is 2012. There is no excuse for women to walk around with matted fur on their heads. Weave only looks good when it's well-maintained and clean. Don't just put weave in and leave it in for 6 months. Your friends won't tell you if your weave smells.

The Ten helpful Tips are as follows:

1. Never let your tracks show (self-explanatory)
2. Always travel with your weave glue (or hair pins in case a track falls out)
3. Always pat your head when it's itchy (patting won't pull out the tracks or make your hair messy)
4. Never lie and say "it's all mine."
5. Never make your weave too greasy (there's nothing worse than a greasy weave, believe me)
