The Greatest Beauty Secret

0 Comments

As women, we are bombarded with messages that we are not beautiful enough just the way we are – we should pluck, contour, lose weight, wax, exfoliate, manicure, highlight, paint, flatten, inject and dress in haute couture to be “beautiful.” Ummmm, NOT. Beauty truly is a state of mind! The greatest beauty secret of all time is simply this – our attitude towards life is reflected in our face for all to see.


“I’ve never seen a smiling face that was not beautiful.” -uknown

Our attitude towards life is reflected in our face for all to see, “broadcast” to the world through our body expressions. Over time these attitudes etch their patterns on our face and in our manner, we begin to look exactly how we think and feel. Feeling good and being around authentic, positive, people can uplift you into a sense of overall well-being that radiate for all to see. Remind yourself DAILY that every cell of your mind, body, and soul is saturated, flooded and drenched in beauty, well-being, grace and love. Repeat as necessary.
The discovery of self is ongoing. Life keeps changing and we need to keep assessing how we live our lives and what we care about. It’s about being mindful of our lives – about feeling good in our skin, which is what feeling beautiful ultimately is all about!

Master the Twist Out

0 Comments

Frizz, dullness and lifeless tresses are always ready to hijack a style.

Perfect your Twist Out with these tips, just remember – the bigger the twists the wavier and bigger the hair. The smaller the twists the curlier and more refined. Follow these tips:

Define: Tighten coils as you go, this will add better curl definition when you un-twist your twists. Halfway through twisting, pull ends apart to tighten and continue.

Minimize Shrinkage: Ensure length by applying Curl Defining Cream to each section, prior to twisting. At the end, pull twists downward and secure the roots with a bobby pin. As hair dries, it will maintain the length.

High Shine: Hair should is completely dry before you begin to unravel. To eliminate frizz, lightly coat fingers with Nourish & Shine, and twirl hair around your fingers as you separate.

In the end, you can get a great twist out with little frizz. You just have to keep at it. Practice makes perfect, curlies. Practice makes perfect!

 

Tips For Transitioners

0 Comments

Transitioning is about learning to accept and adore the texture you were born with!

First, you must accept and understand that it takes time to transition…this is no overnight process ladies. Natural hair is on-trend, but it takes a little more than just the desire to look fabulous – naturally. It’s a journey full of highs and lows, emotions and “interesting” hair days. You just need to remember that transitioning hair is more susceptible to breakage, m-o-i-s-t-u-r-e is essential on your journey!

 

 

Follow these tips:
• Keep your scalp clean.
• Deep condition weekly.
• Avoid harsh combing or brushing; detangle with conditioner while hair is wet.
• Hydrate from root to tip.
• Limit heat usage.
• Textured styles are your best friend.
• Trim end every 4-6 weeks.
Let your strands do their own thing during this process and control with a textured, protective style; try as many as you can, a girl can never have too many go to styles in your bag of tricks. Don’t forget, your job is simply to provide support. (and moisture!!!)
