How to Safely Blow Dry or Flat Iron Your Daughter’s Hair


Hair Nourishing Cream is perfect for all textures of hair and adds shine while repairing dry hair. This wonderful natural-based product can be used on your daughter’s hair and skin (as well as yours), leaving both feeling renewed and moisturized.

If you are going to blow dry your daughter’s hair (after shampooing and detangling), spray Revitalizing Leave-In Conditioner, then apply Hair Nourishing Cream and brush out her hair and put her hair in four soft braids. You can either let her hair air dry or dry her under a hood dryer. Once her hair is dry, you can blow dry her hair straight with a blow dryer and paddle brush or a blow dryer with a pick attachment and either flat iron or put her hair in pony tails.

REMEMBER: If you decide to use the flat iron make sure that you mist each section of your daughter’s hair as you flat iron and do not, I repeat, do not turn that flat iron above 375°, 325° is preferable. A super hot flat iron will permanently straighten the hair and she will not be able to wear her natural texture in the future.

Climb Out of the Barrel In Spite of the Crab Claws


"People too weak to follow their own dreams will always find a way to discourage yours."

I want to remind YOU that YOUR dream is exactly that, YOURS. Just for YOU, designed by YOU, and created by YOU. YOU are the master of this dream! That’s the great news.

Not everyone will see your dream and not everyone will want your dream for you. Be prepared for some people, possibly even those closest to you, to "question" YOUR dream…or even attempt to discourage you. (gasp!) As hurtful and confusing as it may be, do not lose focus of where you are headed. Do not be sidelined by the antics of those who cannot see a dream for themselves.

Stand strong. You’ve taken the steps to realize YOUR dream, now live it!

Grapefruit, Kiwi, and Nourish & Shine



Kiwi is loaded with Vitamin C and very low in calories. Two medium kiwis add only 90 calories to your diet but deliver a whopping 240% of the daily value for Vitamin C and provide 450 mg of potassium, beta-carotene plus four grams of dietary fiber. This tiny little furry fruit packs tremendous nutritional wallop. Eat it alone, in a fruit salad, or on top of yogurt and cereal.


Grapefruit are very high in Vitamin C and half a grapefruit contains 100% of the daily value of Vitamin C. Surprisingly low in calories, a whole grapefruit contains only 120 calories which is why they are often associated with diets and weight loss. Low in sodium and a rich source of lycopene, this is the perfect fruit for boosting your immune system. Grapefruit are often eaten plain or easily juiced. Remember: certain medications may react adversely with grapefruit, so make sure to check with your doctor or pharmacist.

Nourish & Shine

Nourish & Shine may not provide 100% of your daily value of Vitamin C and we don’t recommend that you eat it with a spoon, but we did formulate it with the yummiest of ingredients like Shea butter, Kokum butter, Illippe butter, Mango butter, Vitamins A, D, & E, pear and grapefruit essential oils.

Nourish & Shine is a blend of all natural vitamins and essential oils and the result is an incredible hair nourisher. It completely melts in your hair, adding amazing shine and never leaving your hair feeling greasy or limp.

Like Kiwi and Grapefruit, Nourish & Shine is good for your hair and your skin.
