While I didn't have a harsh winter as most did across the country, I am glad to rid myself of the thick sweaters, fleece-lined boots, scarves and hats. Like I change my winter wardrobe to my summer wardrobe, I also change my skin and hair routine in the summertime. Here are some of my must-haves for the summer to keep my skin and hair looking it's best!
Recently I found out that one of my favorite small business owners who sold natural hair care products has closed their doors...I'm sad to announce that Nyenzo in Raleigh, NC has closed their doors. *teary eyed* However, they will continue to sell some products online. BUT this made me go hmmmm….
If you’re apart of the natural hair community, you’ve probably heard of International Natural Hair Meetup Day. If you haven’t, then International Natural Hair Meetup Day (INHMD), the brainchild of Adeea Rogers, is an annual one-day event that gives naturalistas across the world the opportunity to meet in their own communities while networking, sharing and meeting with other women across the world participating in meetups on the same day. This year, INHMD's title sponsor was Koils by Nature. (psst...I personally love the Shealoe Leave-In Conditioner...unbiased comment :-))
This post is EXTREMELY late but I've been recovering from this amazing event!!! My feet still hurt! LOL!
As a working mother of three, I always try to find wholesome and nutritious alternatives to feed my family when I don't have time to cook. Recently, I had the opportunity to taste test a free Annie's Homegrown frozen entree through Influenster.
Today I came across a report on CNN.com that said cancer will be the number one killer in the US in 16 years!!! I have no words! How is this possible??? Medical science has advanced greatly since the 1970s with treating cancer patients. What does this mean for you, me and our children???
Last night I went to North Carolina State University’s campus to attend “From Root to Tip – A Discussion on African American Hair” sponsored by Women Empowering Society Together (W.E.S.T.), Campus Curls and Kinks, African Student Union, Zeta Phi Beta and NCSU Women’s Center. I was very interested in hearing what educated young women had to say about natural hair. Well, I was pleasantly surprised!!!
If you're like me, you need some inspiration for a last minute Valentine's Day gift!!! If you are a DIY'er, you can probably do them yourself. Check them out!
Winter this year has been unbelievable! Record setting temps, snow fall, etc… The colder temperatures can and will leave our skin feeling like sand paper and looking like alligator hide if you don’t take care of it properly. What can you do besides slathering on ultra rich lotions and creams??? Your diet is your FIRST defense against dry, itchy, flaky skin!!! But here are some other lifestyle changes that should help make your skin supple and smooth.
As the year began, many of us made resolutions or goals for 2014…lose weight, start a business, have better relationships, etc. I know because I made them too. But I also made “hair goals” for myself…healthier and longer hair. So I decided that in order to have healthier, longer hair there were some things that I wanted and needed to do.
