Update… where have I been?

Standard

I know I haven’t been writing much on my blog, first of all I have been feeling under the weather for a least a month, let me tell you “Vertigo” is no joke.  I am finally on some good medication that seems to be working.  In the midst of my chaos, I have been somewhat neglecting my hair because I just had no energy to stand and do my hair.  I am celebrating my 10th month nappyversary this month!   My hair is growing and healthy but I did discover a small bald spot at the front of my hair so I have been treating it with “Miss Antilles” and now I can see that the hair is slowly growing back.

In case you are wondering what is “Miss Antilles?”… it is With Panthenol, essential oils and phytoproteins. Specially developed for brittle and damaged hair, the superactivated MULTICROISSANCE lotion clearly slows down hair loss, activates growth and stimulates scalps. Rich in purifying and softening active ingredients, this lotion prevents the appearance of dandruff and its consequences.

How to use: The treatment should be followed for 2 months. Every evening , apply the lotion line by line and massage to make the product penetrate. do not rinse. Avoid any contact with eyes. If product gets into eyes, rinse them immediately and thoroughly.

Herbal Hot Oil Treatment

Standard

I came across this wonderful tutorial by GreenBeautyChannel and thought imediately how wonderful this is for me because  I have been dealing with dryness. I can just imagine how nice the oil would smell after adding the essential oils.  This tutorial is extremely informative and very helpful.  Hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.

New Year Resolution!

Standard

I am wondering how many of you have made a resolution for the year 2013.  Frankly I don’t know why we do this to ourselves, we try to be good and stick with our resolution for a few months and then we just give up.  For myself I know it’s a lack of motivation, boredom, for example last year I got myself a gym membership.  As of January I started going religiously 3 times a week, I was doing really well until we went on vacation in the summer.  Then I just couldn’t motivate myself to go back to the gym.  I found excuses after excuses not to go.  I’m sure I am not alone in this…

I am very proud of myself for making the decision to become natural, it’s been 8 months and there hasn’t been a day when I was remotely tempted to go back.

This year I decided to become vegetarian, I have been thinking about it for a while and I am happy to say that I survived my first week.  My daughter asked me this morning if I miss eating meat, and my answer was no.  I will be posting recipes on my site very soon…

I am also doing this 52 week money challenge, I came across this challenge and thought to myself that is such a good way of saving money by starting with just $1.  Here is it, I challenge you to to this because by the end of the year you will end up with $1378.

Dry braidout

Standard

When viewing this video I thought I would share it with you because the result is very nice.  I usually do a twist out but never a braid out.  It is very simple, simply part your hair in sections, moisturize with your favourite moisturizer then braid.  The next morning apply a little oil to your fingers and unbraid.  Check out the tutorial by eleganttrendz.
