“Making the decision to have a child – it’s momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” ~Elizabeth Stone

Mothers are the creator of the human race; they are the first Guru, the first guide and mentor of humanity. Think of the tremendous positive force that a mother, one single human being, can unleash upon the world — each having a far reaching effect on others, whether she is aware of it or not.

Motherhood is a woman’s never ending, a lifelong journey. The birth of each child is a new, magical experience beyond anything imaginable. There is a saying that the moment a child is born, the mother is also born. Whether the baby is from the womb, the adoption agency or foster care, each birth creates a new mother. They give the most precious of gifts to their children: unconditional love, support, wisdom and opportunity. It is pure passion that leads her to teach, protect, mold, shape and prepare her children for the future. In profound ways, all mothers empower their children to change the world. We all have our favorite mom stories, tales of how our mothers nurtured us into the people we are today.

This year, let us reflect on the women who have come before us and those that are still here within our reach.  They inspire us, they enlighten us, they nurture us; they come from all walks of life and from all every inch of this beautiful earth. Each one of us mothers has a purpose, a calling (big or small, public or private)…mine is to remind the women of the world to “love their hair” by embracing their natural beauty.

Celebrate by releasing the energy into the world that has been place upon your heart as you have the power to change the world in our communities, homes and hemispheres!

 

Happy Mother’s Day

 

Love Your Hair,

Jane

If you really want to fly, harness your power to your passion.” -Oprah

Be passionate about finding your purpose! By “passions”, I am referring to creative or constructive endeavors or activities that you enjoy immersing yourself in. Passion is the gasoline that powers our engines, steers us in the right direction and drives us into our destiny.

It is never too late to figure out what you love to do and to create a life around living your dreams. It’s self-discovery time; take the journey to find the answers. These answers to who you are and what you love is not contained in any book or sold in any store. Instead, the answers to what fires your imagination and makes your heart beat faster are found inside of you.

Neglecting passion blocks your creative flow, leaving you feeling stifled and unsatisfied.

Creating a life following your passion can only start with taking the time to discover and then making the necessary changes so your life starts to reflect those things…and you can really take flight!

QUESTION: How Do You Define Natural Hair?

0 Comments

Lately, there’s a lot of discussion among black women about what is considered to be truly natural. While these discussions are useful to the extent that we are sharing our diverse opinions with each other but can anyone else define what is natural to me or to you…

How do you define “natural” for black hair? Does it just mean being weave/wig-free? What about people who wear natural looking wigs? What if you don’t have a relaxer, but you dye it? What if you don’t have a relaxer, but you use hair products full of chemicals?

Let’s talk ladies:

  1. What does “natural” mean to you?
  1. Are there any requirements to being considered “natural”?
  1. What does your natural hair represent to you?

There are many options for beating the summer heat and humidity, and keeping your natural style in check. A girl can be hot and sexy….literally in 90 plus degree heat!

There are two major challenges that women encounter during the summer — retaining moisture and curl definition. Simple summer natural hair styles that will keep you looking great from the board room to the beach.
Here are a few suggestions:

  • To moisturize and define wash and wear curls, apply Curl Defining Cream from root to tips of wet tresses.
  • For roller or straw sets to beat the summer balminess, turn to Wrap & Roll for light hold with no residue.
  • Sweating is also a challenge when trying to preserve a hairstyle. Try one of these:
    • up do’s
    • wear headbands & scarves to lift the hair off the face
    • at night pull the hair to the top of the head while sleeping if you sweat at night

Say goodbye to the summertime styling struggle and get ready to live free!
