Summer Care

Summer time is here and we have to be sure that we do everything in our power to keep our children's hair healthy under these hot muggy conditions of the summer weather. There are 6 tips that I follow during the summer to be sure that Rayna keeps her hair healthy in the heat.

1. Moisturize Your Hair DAILY
  - being that we already know that keeping the hair moisturized is the key to healthy hair, well during these hot summer days the sun drys our hair out. Some recommended products are Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, or Olive Oil.

2. Drink plenty of WATER
 - water is very important to our body in many ways and yes it helps keep our hair healthy.

3. DON'T allow your hair to DRY out
 - stay away from products with alcohol, sulfur, and formaldehyde

4. USE deep conditioner every two weeks
 -be sure to wash it out

5. Try to avoid HEATING appliances.
 -if it is a must that you use heat, be sure to use a heat protecting oil

6. DON'T go swimming without a swim cap.
 -Remember to always wash and condition your hair afterwards.

Moisturizing the hair should be done as often as possible to prevent the hair from being dry and I find it easier to moisturize at night. Moisturizing at night gives the hair time to absorb the products. In order to moisturize I use a homemade mist, y…

The Struggles of a Transitioning Mom

As a mother we are always busy doing something; rather it's working, possibly school, work, house chores, caring for our children, and the list goes on. In the midst of doing all of these things it can sometimes be difficult for us to take time out for ourselves to do what we need to do just for us.
      Nevertheless, these past two and a half years of transitioning to natural has been very difficult for me. For starters I was natural up until my senior year in high school which was back in 2002. I decided to get a perm that year and I can honestly say that I regret it. Before having children I would visit the hair salon every two weeks for a new hair style which meant I had no maintaining to do.
      However, after having my first daughter, doing research, and learning how to maintain natural hair I became fascinated. I began thinking about how I was preaching to her about leaving her hair in its natural state and learning to love it, but then one day she said "Mommy…
