Deep conditioners are a regular part of my natural hair regimen. Now that we are approaching the fall/winter season deep conditioning is especially important because the cooler temperatures can wreak havoc on our hair. Deep conditioners restore moisture to hair, help maintain elasticity, strengthens hair strands, restores your hairs natural sheen, and helps to prevent and/or reverse damage.
The type of deep conditioner you use on your hair will depend on your hair’s needs.
In case you haven’t noticed, the natural hair community is here to stay, and we are here for it! So much has been inspired by the natural hair movement, including television, art and music to name a few. The fashion world has quickly caught on by offing different fashions that enable you to express your love for natural hair.
Lori Scott’s t-shirt brand Sensationally Nappy offers a variety of natural hair tees that enables us natural girls to show our love for and celebrate our kinks and curls in a fun and stylish way.
Dryness tends to be a common problem among those of us with natural hair. I have type 4C hair, and my hair can get very dry at times. Because of my hair texture, it can tend to look dull as well. When your hair is kinky, it is harder for the natural oils in your scalp to travel to your hair strands. This will cause your hair to look dull and less shiny.
If your hair is prone to dryness, with proper care and treatment, you can revitalize your mane.
For some of us, winding down each night can be a challenge. Because we lead such busy lives, we are like that bunny that keeps going and going. At the end of the day, we fall into bed exhausted and then wake up the next morning with brain fog to do it all over again.
Adding self-care habits to our nightly routine is one way to improve our health, both mentally and physically. When we take care of ourselves, we have more to give to those we love.
Self-care is important to both our mental and physical health. But because we lead such busy lives, we often neglect taking the time to actually care for ourselves. I for one, know that I have been guilty of this.
We often feel that because we have so many activities on our plate – work, school, church, kids, after school activities and the list goes on and on, that we are unable to actually fit “me time” into our schedules.
Is there such a thing as a co-wash-aholic? If so, that’s me (raises hand). I love conditioning my natural hair, and I am always thrilled when I can find a budget friendly conditioner that works well for my hair. I have tried so many different products that it’s not even funny. While I appreciate the more expensive brands, and I have quite a few of those in my stash, I appreciate the products that are easy on my wallet as well.
We all know that daily skin care is important, right? Our skin is the largest barrier that we have to protect us from infections. Healthy skin also helps us to age gracefully.
Some of us are under the misconception that you need the most expensive cleansers, moisturizers, and latest tools in order to properly achieve healthy skin. That, however, is not true. Your daily regimen does not have to include a ten or twelve step process
Anyone that knows me knows that I LOVE handbags (or purses). As a matter of fact, the bigger the handbag, the better, because I am known to carry a little bit of everything inside of mine. I change out my handbags according to my outfit, and I also change them according to the season. Now that fall is fastly approaching, I have found 18 inexpensive handbags for the upcoming fall season.
