I LOVE JOJOBA OIL - The Benefits

Image
I have got to say, it's the best thing I've ever found for my hair/scalp. I actually use drops of this oil directly on the scalp. Do not fear, Yes it's an oil, but it's great for the scalp! READ ON...lol Jojoba Oil: Pronounced (Ho-HO-ba)/Simmondsia chinensis plant One of the most intriguing things about this oil is that it operates almost the same way human sebum (oil) does, so it can be put on the scalp directly and not clog at all! Cool huh!
I use this oil for my scalp.

Known for its natural moisturizing, restorative and anti-inflammatory properties, Jojoba oil is a liquid wax produced by the seeds of the Jojoba shrub that is native to areas such as southern California, southern Arizona and northwestern Mexico.
Jojoba Oil in Skin Care Even more interesting, Jojoba oil has been shown to work well with acne prone skin. When applied to the skin, Jojoba oil balances sebum levels and also possesses anti-bacterial properties that prevent breakouts. Its ability to prevent moistur…

Natural Comment!

When it comes to the latest trend in hairstyles, many Black women are choosing to return to their natural roots, yep they're deciding not to relax or chemically straighten their hair, and instead growing and maintaining it naturally.
I see more and more women growing their hair out, and soon cutting the permed hair off. It's not just a phase anymore. I think more and more women in the south are realizing that hair grows faster, better, and more healthier when it is not chemically processed/damaged. Something that folks in other areas have known long ago.
You may think your hair is healthy while permed, but honestly it's not! It is being damaged more and more. If you see loose hair in the sink, pick it up. Look at it, if the strand of hair does not have a while bulb-like end, your hair is breaking...Not Shedding! It's a huge difference. When your hair breaks, you'll never see growth. How can you see growth if your hair is always breaking. Not going to happen sweethe…

50 Cent &Ciara Spark Controversy with Subliminal Tweets

Image
Childish Drama, Drama, and More Drama!
This just in, According to Rap Up, Internet info mag...
Hip-hop playboy 50 Cent chilled with the original playboy Hugh Hefner at the Playboy Mansion on Friday night (Jan. 28). “I just left the play boy mansion. I think I want to be a pimp now. Sh*t I have strong pimp qualities. Lol,” tweeted the rapper, who posed with his arm around 84-year-old Hef. “I’m looking for girls to start my new line of work. Are there any strong potential hoe’s on tweeter right now. Lol.”

But it wasn’t this photo that set off a firestorm on Twitter. Minutes later, Ciara sent out a tweet which some speculate was a reaction to 50’s comments. “The things people tweet say a lot about their character, pay attention!” wrote CiCi.

Shortly after, Curtis tweeted, “Yea I tweet things that reflect my character b*tch. I have a sense of humor get one.lol that’s why your 3 mill followers behind me.” Ciara, who happens to have three million followers less than 50, fired back with, “ooohh…

Corinne Bailey Rae

One of my favorite singers Ms. Corinne Bailey Rae attended the  InStyle’s Best of British Talent Party in association with Lancome at Shoreditch House on yesterday in London, England. She looked so gorgeous and it looks like her hair is growing pretty fast. She is so effortlessly fashionable. I love this lady!

Reviews: Cantu Shea Butter Leave in Conditioner

Image
Overall Rating is 4.2 Below is a product that I was interested in using. I have a friend that has been natural all of her life that uses this product, but isn't hugely aware of what products to use. This product says Shea Soft, and promotes shea butter fully, and it does contain Shea Butter as the second ingredient. It also contains a product I try to stay away from as the 4th ingredient, Propylene Glycol! (Click on my tab above-Bad Hair Ingredients for more on this). Other than this, it has alot of artificial ingredients in it, in which, when used alot can do more harm than good. This product can be found at Wal-Mart for about $6.00, I tried it for myself, and it is not the best product. It does moisturize the hair strand. I stayed away from my scalp while using this product. Try it for yourself.
Below are others Pro & Cons about this product and what it is best used for, Next to it are the number of people who said it! Product Features:Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Re…

Youtubers: Natural Journey-One Year

I love her hair type! Mainly, because it's the same as mine. I've watched most of her youtube videos and at her 6th month mark it was the same as where I am now. So this excites me majorly! Take a look and become inspired! Big ups to natural hair!

First of all. I love how she look so unique and creative. Not many people would do this, and I love Confidence. The boots are so nice, and adds a little touch to the look. Love it!

Hairstyles I want to accomplish this year!

Image
I believe that everyone who starts a Natural Hair Journey should have expectations, and goals with their hair. They should do length checks every certain amount of months to check growth, etc. Not too often, because you may think your hair is not growing when it actually is, so I say. Do a length check every 2-5 months. It goes by fast trust me. A person should also adopt a great hair regimen. Such as, a certain hair washing day, etc. I have both. I also use natural hair products, which is a plus. A person should read up, and make themselves familiar on many things about natural hair, or know where to find information... Like my Blog, *Hint Hint*
Here are just a few of the Natural Hairstyles I plan on accomplishing this year with my own Natural Hair, CHECK 'EM OUT!...Tell me what you think!




My First Hair Puff (NO Blow Out)! YAY...lol

Image
Okay, so as a few of you may already know. I did the 'BC' (Big Chop) on July 28th 2010, so I'm coming around 6 months of being Natural and I'm falling in love with my hair more and more everyday. After my regular hair spoiling day (Sunday). I tried to do something new with my hair. I put some Curls moisturizing natural product on my hair ($10.99 Available at Target) and pulled it up. To my suprise, I had a puff. I did not use a blow dryer or anything. I'm sure if I did, my puff would have been larger, but I let my curls do their thing and my puff was still a nice size! I put on some earrings and wore it in that style for the day. I got some compliments too. Love it!  


Natural Man: Steph Jones Speaks Up!

Image
I know we've all heard some Black men say, "I can't date a Black woman because she has too much attitude," well...singer and songwriter Steph Jones kindly addressed the issue on a video column, "The Storage," saying, "You can't eliminate a whole race of beautiful creatures because the last three people you tried to date had an attitude." He took it a step further, by adding, "Maybe you attract the type of people that you're trying to put down..."! I commend him on this, because he is letting it be known that not all black men feel the same way, and he is a celebrity at that! Go Steph, with your natural gorgeous hair! Watch the Video Below
