in regard to this issue about the youtubers, this discussion is officially closed.
I don't want to escalate drama and further out of proportion causing
distractions away from what is important. I would like to proceed in a
positive light with only MHM related issues.
I have decided to
pull down some of my messages directly referencing the issue and will be
dealing with this privately going forward. I do not want to bring you
guys into this or escalate the situation. I hope to contact bhm in
assisting me to remove some of the comments, but we will see.

The woman/stylist has been following aketafitgirl girl, you can see it on her channel. Not sure she knows it's from bhm or where it originally came from.
Yes, journey I
am aware she followed aketafitgirl, I even saw her channel before. I was actually
subscribed to her prior to this because of the video she made about
is close with Char Jay as well, who I emailed on june 20th, extensively
about the method.
Page 161 shows all the screen shots. CharJay definetly
would have read it with the giant pictures of defined 4c hair in the
email. And now all of a sudden Charjay's making a video, repeating
many of the things that have been said on the forum. Why capitalize on
it now? If she really knew, which she has known about aketafitgirl for a
year and has been associated with charjay for 3 years. she should have
spontaneously came up with this then, without char jay involved, Not a 5
weeks after I sent charjay the email.
She read my email and let the
stylist know and they collaborated, took advantage of the information
and are taking credit. I do not mind someone spreading this information,
tweaking it, what eever. But seeing as i went out of my way to email
her in confidence, after doing all this research and taking the time to
put this together so help people so they don't have to go on the search,
she could have given credit where it is due. and it is clear that she
told that stylist about it, they both clearly knew about the method.
Give credit where credit is due, is all.

I don't think she was reading word for word from the
method that is here. I have heard people say before reading this forum
years ago say hair has to be properly hydrated or once hair has reach
its maximum hydration etc. This young lady on this video has referenced
things she's done closely to curly girl method. It maybe me because I
have gone to cosmetology school that I know in order to have healthy
hair it has to be properly hydrated. I think Pinkecube shouldn't have
showed or even freely talked about this on blogs. She's added
Danabnatural's way of doing hydration to her list of regimen also. And I
do not know the stylist nor client, it's my personal opinion after
seeing her comments on the video and here.
@ msteetee yes if you look at my first post, wash n gos don't work
on nappy hair: this method is based on them. I made it very clear on the
forum. In fact the only reason I decided to call this a method, is
because I want people to find these exact techniques and have a name for
the process, so more kinkier types can find out about this.
I have contacted Danabnatural and she knows about this method and that it is
inspired on the two of them. I never made any attempt to hide that, in
fact I have been encouraging people to go to their channels since the
very beginning, and telling people to check out their channels and
making it clear this method is inspired by them.
See how that is
ethical? Unlike just taking the information and not giving credit or
reference when i even specifically emailed her about it. That is taking
advantage and bigger youtubers do this all the time. its not the term max hydration or having the hair hydrated that is the
issue, it is the way she explained a lot of things in the video sounded like
she had read and lifted the information off of my email and the information on the forum links i provided. She's known about aketafitgirl but only decided to make a video in over a year with the very person i emailed about this method extensively-- just 5 weeks after I emailed? She used information off of this forum, and didn't give credit. Even almost everything she mentioned in the video can be found in the email or on the link to the page i provided in the email. The least she could have done was say where she got it from. They wanted to take advantage of the information but capitalize on it themselves instead of giving any credit which is why they chose the route they did.
