The Good Stuff



I thank God for giving me the ingredients to Mi’rah Co: my home grown hair oil.  My hair is strong and very healthy looking.  Over the last 5 years, I have grown to love caring for my natural hair. I have a better relationship with my hair because I know what to use, how to use it, and when to use it. My hair loves my homemade protein treatments; Mi’rah Co; Rhassoul Clay; Henna, Brahmi; Curl Junkie – Smoothing Lotion; Curl Junkie – Daily Fix; Karen’s Body Beautiful – Butter Love; and Karen’s Body Beautiful –Hold It Hair Gel. 


When I went natural 6 years ago, I had to search high and low for the GOOD STUFF.  Now, you can find natural products everywhere you go.   I can go to Target, natural hair boutiques, Whole Foods, and online to buy product for my kinky coily hair. I thank God for the good stuff-my hair!

What was I thinking?

          After Cut                       10 months of growth
 
What was I thinking when I scheduled an appointment to cut off most of my natural beautiful hair? No one tried to stop me from making a nutty decision! 
I wanted a new look for summer, so I thought that cutting my hair would be an excellent idea...big mistake.  I am usually a creature of habit with my hair. At first the cut was awesome, but then I washed it. I forgot for a moment that my hair type is plagued with up to 90 percent SHRINKAGE.

My husband was not pleased with my new cut because it was too short. Say what, man? He was the one that was all for it in the beginning.  Wig, weave, or braids? What was I going to do? That was my life 10 months ago.


Now, I have ten months of new growth and I love it. I am falling in love with my hair again!
