Welcome to the NEW BGLH!


In a few short months, BGLH will celebrate its 5 year anniversary! And it’s crazy to me that what started as a hobby has turned into this hub of inspiration and beauty. We’ve had hundreds of discussions on hair, beauty and culture, featured hundreds of natural women and, in the process, outgrown the title of “blog”. Today we are a full on website — an online resource thousands of women come to every month for information and inspiration.

BGLH is a kind of like a home to me. Yes, it’s virtual, but every time I log on to edit articles or read feedback, it feels like home. And I wanted this online home to be as warm, sophisticated, beautiful and full of energy as the women we feature. So here it is.

This is one of many upgrades we’ll be making in the coming months to keep things fresh and current. Feel free to leave your feedback below and, as always, thanks for reading!

Much love :)

  1. I love the new style layout! I do also miss the old header, but as others said, I will live lol. Congratulations on 5 years, I have been here for that whole time, love what you do!

    I do definitely agree on the suggestion about how to navigate the new content, I also only stumbled upon this post. It may be nice to have a place where the new content of the week is featured.

    Fab job Miss L, very proud of you!

  2. I just discovered BGLH like a month ago, I wish I would have been found it I would have be natural sooner. I love this site and the new layout works great on my phone (I usually use the site from here)

    Only thing is when view the photos and then close off I can’t click the back button to just take me to the home screen. And if I reas an article and go back it doesn’t take me to where I was.

    Other than that I can live lol I love this site you guys help a lot. I love my YouTube but that BGLH ROCKS!! Congrats and Happy anniversary. I hope to be featured in the future.

    -5 months into transistion

  3. I love the variety in content which is why I visit daily – sometimes several times. I am getting used to the new layout, and looking forward to the additonal ones!
