Transition - A Documentary

I found a video today on Madame Noire from the New York Times about a documentary on transitioning to natural hair. I love how the narrator & creator Zina Saro-Wiwa tells briefly how her transition changed her whole life. 

I tell people all the time how going natural affected every part of my life from head to toe and from outside to inside. Being Natural is so much more than a hairstyle its a lifetsyle, its who we are.

Enjoy the video

Fairy Knots I hate em!

Oh How I HATE Fairy Knots!!! You know those little bitty knots in your hair that you feel when doing your natural hair. Well, here's a blog post I read yesterday about how to combat those single strand knots in our hair

So, I've been a a mini product haul to replenish some oldies but goodies and try some new items.

So I bought some Taliah Waajid Curly Curl Cream and I like it so far I'm going to attempt a twist for the 19th million time and hopefully this will help my curls stay around for days instead of hours lol

The next thing I bought was a product that I absolutely love!! Dabur Vatika oil. I purposely drive to the other side of town to the Indian Grocer just for this one product! If you haven't tried it this is a must have!

The ingredients include hair:
Coconut Oil, Amla extract, Henna extract, Lemon oil, Brahmi extract, Rosemary oil, & Neem extract. 

All the ingredients promote hair growth, strengthening the hair and preventing hair loss

I'll post the rest of my product haul later try Vatika Oil whenever you can you'll never know how you lived without it!

Bino & Fino

I was browsing the internet and I found a African Childrens cartoon called Bino & Fino! I don't know how I found this, but I'm glad I did!! This is a very good cartoon for children of african descent from ages 3 - 6.  I love how the little girl has little afro puffs check it out and share with your children, nieces or nephews.

My 1st Handmade Satin Hair Bonnett

So, today with the help of my Aunt Linda and my Bff Watesa we made 1 XXL hair bonnet. I wanted it to be big so when I have braids or rock my afro I will have a bonnet that will accommodate my hair. I went to Joann fabrics and found some very cute gray & purple polka dot fabric that was on sale for $4.99/yrd.

So, after a little bit of laughing and talking trying to figure this out......Here is the finished product and I'm very happy with it! I now know what I need to do to make it and perfect it. Satin bonnets are an essential part of any persons hair care regimen to protect your hair and maintain moisture.

Here is moi modeling my bonnet aka pastry chef hat lol The only thing I want to change about its is the tightness of the band which I will adjust another day. Let me know what you guys think and I can't wait to make another one!!

Hey Natural Diva's,

So I received an awesome press release from one of my awesome #NaturalHair followers the lovely @mslawanda about  National Natural Hair Meetup Day! I had never heard of this until I got her email and I'm very excited about the event. I saw that there is only 1 event listed for Columbus, OH but I haven't heard about it at all so I'm on a mission to find this meetup to see how we can maybe collaborate to get the word out even more.

National Natural Hair Meetup Day is an one day event where women across the country can meet and share the joys and trials of being natural. If you haven't heard of an event in your city please check out the website at to find a meetup event near you!

Viola Davis is Beautiful

I so love this video I found!!! Its an open letter to Wendy Williams reflecting on her comments about #NaturalHair
#NaturalHair is Beautful!!! and if you don't like what God created or think you have to change what he made perfect then something is wrong with YOU. It doesn't matter if you're relaxed or natural God made everything about us PERFECT, but the problem is those who feel #NaturalHair is dirty or nasty looking that need to check themselves because they are degrading themselves #IJS


I've been on a hiatus working on Shea Addiktion Bath & Body will be doing a product launch very soon yay!! In the meantime and in between time I've also been working on a project that focuses solely on me called #ProjectTotalMe this is the beginning of a new change in my life that is centered around my Total Health from physical, mental, spiritual, & financial health.

Today is my 3rd day of this journey and I'm so excited about it. So, look forward to daily updates from this day forward on hair and health
