How I Helped My Mother Transition After 45 Years With a Relaxer

My mother is of Afro-Dominican descent. If you know anything about Dominican blowouts and salons, you already know what long, straight, fried hair means to our culture. It’s a must-have, regardless of your texture. Our uniform. There’s really no way around it if you want to be considered beautiful. For years, that side of my family taunted my big curly black hair, asking me when I was “finally going to do something with it” and telling me “no man is going to marry you looking like that”. Do something with it? Looking like that? They clearly didn’t know all the prepping it took to get this volume, shine and moisture sealed in. But I digress. This is about my mother.


10 Tips for a Healthier You in 30 Days

Being healthy and feeling healthy is about our habits and the choices that we make daily in many areas of our life.  Our mind and body learns by repetition, and the more we do one thing, the easier it becomes to keep doing it. As we make choices consistently and consecutively, our minds and bodies start to change.


Let it Go, Girl! Why Going Natural May Be Your Best Bet

Ever notice how the people who are the most hesitant about going natural are the ones who REALLY should go natural? I mean, their hair has been relaxed within an inch of its life and looks like it could all fall out if the trajectory of the wind hits it wrong, yet they’re all like “I could NEVER go natural.”

How to Get Rid of Dandruff the Natural Way
If you are struggling with dandruff, there are many treatments that you can attempt at home before going to your nearest drug store. These treatments are free from harsh synthetic chemicals and with consistent use can be just as effective in alleviating embarrassing flakes and itches that dandruff causes as leading commercial treatments like “Head and Shoulders”.
