Volume 29: Comeback Season 

Fab & Protective!

Fab & Protective!

Hey! Ok, so I know that you all have noticed a recent influx of ladies wearing the 2 french braids hairstyle. Let me just say that I love this! I’m always interested to see which style will catch for the summer. Last year, it was the box braids – also fabulous. I call them grandma braids and I usually resort to this style when I am having a bad hair day but i connect the braids in the back. Definitely didn’t think to add braiding hair and let the braids hang. I am here for this style – it’s easy to do, looks great and different on everyone, you can get creative with the part/braiding and they are inexpensive, if you’re looking to have them done. Braids have an undeniable regal quality. So happy that this look made a comeback. I’m going to do them for myself tonight and report back 🙂 .

Volume 28: Eat Good. Live Good. Grow Well. 

Got this Monday off from work but I still have to work ya know? I made a promise to my passion. Anyway, moving forward — hair and food, easily my two most cherished situations. So, with healthy hair and food always on my mind, its hard not to notice the impact that certain foods have on our hair. There are a number of tasty foods that promote hair growth. Lets see, we have:

Salmon (Yum!!) – It contains protein, vitamin D, and omega-3 fatty acids AND its delicious. Couple it with sweet potatoes and spinach(both promote hair growth) — exciting times in the land 😛  –Similar dark, leafy veggies like broccoli and kale also keep hair follicles healthy.

Strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, and tomatoes – All high in vitamin C, help scalp circulation and supports the blood vessels that fuel hair follicles.

Eggs– They are high in iron which a lack of can lead to anemia and consequently, hair loss, especially for woman. I have issues with low iron levels – so this is a high point for me. Eggs are delicious, scrambled, sunny side, boiled – I’m here for them.

Protein high meats– Chicken (Yes), turkey (Yes), beef (Yes), etc. are all great food choices as they are high in protein, zinc, vitamin B, and iron. Our hair is mainly made of protein so foods rich in this substance literally set the foundation for hair growth.

That’s all I have for now. The food that we all find delicious also helps us remain fabulous –It’s a win, win.

Volume 27: Flex!

Flexi-Rod Queen

Flexi-Rod Queen!

I’m in sort of a hair transformation/experiment. I’ve decided to decrease the number of perms I get in a year’s time from 6-7 to 4. I want to see how my hair will react. I’m used to that every 10 weeks routine – lay my edges down proper and definitely on schedule. With the old regime, I would be on perm 3 or 4 at this point but I have currently only gotten 2. I could never go completely natural – Sheesh. My new growth and edges can attest.

But! – I have found a savior — flexi rods! I love them. The curls are sort of my protective style. As time progresses between perms, it becomes harder for me to wear my hair straight. With my curls, I can curl my hair with a wand, throw in the flexi rods and go about 2 weeks without needing to do anything else. No need to constantly put heat on my hair and they’re super cute. A win for sure. You’ll be seeing alot of curls.  I shall add this style to my list of go-to hairstyles for times such as this.

Ps. Thanks for letting me use your flexi-rods sus. At this point, I’ll just buy my own. 😛

Volume 26: Werk

I am in an interesting stage in life where I am both working a full time job at DePaul University (God is Good) as well as working the path to my dream of owning my hair salon(s) (God is Able). I work DePaul during the day and take clients during the evening/weekend. At times, the two can conflict or simply make life A LOT busier. For those of you who work a 9 to 5 only to begin work for your true passion once your day is done – I love you. Keep pressing forward! The amount of work you put in matches what you can expect in return. If my DePaul University entrepreneur education didn’t teach me anything else, it taught me the value of time, work, consistency and dedication to your vision. I know I am not alone so I’m sending a virtual hug to those who need it 🙂
