Rose Water For Everything

Image
Rose water benefits your body in a number of ways. Everyone knows rose water is great for your face, but did you know that it can also be used as a mouthwash, eye wash, hair moisturizer, for flavoring drinks and food. The uses are numerous. The following is courtesy of guide2herbalremedies.com

Cheap alternative for a steam treatment

Hello Ladies 

Are you DC'ing without using steam/moist heat? Do you have a bonnet dryer? Well, drum roll please, use your bonnet dryer as a heating cap. Instead of rushing out to give Sally's Beauty Supply more of your hard earned cash try the steps below first.

Great results can be achieved just as easily with a couple of handy household items and if you already own a hooded dryer, a steam treatment is well within your reach without breaking the bank!  What you will need:

A bowl full of hot water (not boiling)

2 plastic caps or plastic bags

A hooded/bonnet dryer

Prepare your hair first by washing and applying the conditioner or hair treatment. Soak both face cloths in the hot water. Wring some of the water out of the first face cloth.

Girl, You Wearing A Wig?!?

Image
Every now and then, I feel the need to have long hair or straight hair, or long curly hair. When this undeniable feeling creeps into my bones, I go to my trusty hair pieces. Wigs, Falls, Hats, Pieces, or whatever you may call them, they all serve a purpose, to make you look like eye candy!! Let's face it, not everyone likes the natural look. I only do this on special occasions, when I feel my natural may not be appropriate. That feeling is coming less often and the  last time I did wear one my boyfriend says "Oh, I wanted  you to wear it curly". Can't win either way!! How often do you don your piece?

My Who Looks What????

Image
While out shopping for my daughters 10th birthday, a lady stopped me in Walmart to tell me that my hair was beautiful. What? Me? Mine?!?

I was walking down the refrigereated aisle in Walmart with my white boyfriend and mixed 3yr old son and a random lady walking behind us, talking on her cell phone, stopped mid conversation to tell me that MY hair was beautiful. She then went on to ask me what I put in it and told me it looked good on me. The funny thing about it is that I was looking at her hair because she had a TWA that was sharp!! I don't take compliments well so I just said "Thanks" and went on with my business like it never even happened even though I was feeling good inside. This is about how my hair looked on that particular day.

I get more compliments now that I am natural then I ever did when it was relaxed or in micro braids or kinky twists. Do you ever get compliments on your hair? How do you take it?
