Video: Being Natural is Complex

Hey ya'll
I made this video last year to show how trying different things on my hair hair, like wash and go's just don't work alone. Hello can you say shrinkage. Well this is a mishap using Tresemme Conditioner flawless curls and Eco Styler Gel. I ended up having to twist it up because it wasn't as "shiny,curly" as most wash and go's are. Lesson learned!!

Enjoy the video below :)

I think I have readers block?!

Okay so this may not be a real thing but I think I have really am suffering from readers block. I purchased all of these things to get me inspired to write and meditate on all these goals. And I have yet to accomplish this. So I am sure this problem has risen due to me always over whelming my life. I  put so much on my plate because I feel like I should be doing something at every min of the day. I don't know if this is a disorder I have or just something that most people go through. I just try to figure everything out on my own and when I am unable to figure things out in a timely matter, I become really stressed. Which brings me to my readers block. I feel like I need to be reading all of these books I have, I feel like I should be taking notes constantly. Reading and writing affirmations all the time. Praying all the time, reading the bible all the time. On top of doing everyday life stuff. So what has happened is because I feel uninspired to do everything, I have just completely stopped doing anything. I haven't been listening to my Gabby B, nor have I been writing in my very beautiful notebook; the one I thought would inspire me to write.

I can not even begin to count how many things I've started and never really completed. There might be a name for this. But I start books, I start projects, I start journeys and I never complete them.

This frustrates me all the time.

How do I learn to just relax? I fear that I am forcing myself into an early grave because I stress about everything. Literally everything. From the time I wake up @7am until I go to sleep at about 11 pm, I am stressed about something. Which I believe is complete madness for any human being to live. I just need to learn how to relax.

So other than that, I started my Externship this week. And so far so good! :) Some times God just puts you in a place where you need to be for right now even if it's not where you'll be forever.

Video: Medley of products

Hey ya'll. The video below was filmed two years ago. The reason I am posting it now is because I am fortunate enough to be able to post videos and blogs more easier now that I have my own internet. Yes I could just say let me start over, but I want you all to see the progress of my hair not just in words. I am proud of the mistakes I have made and want everyone in the natural hair community to know that no one's hair is perfect. Not does it come out perfect every time. We have to take the time to work on our hair so that we can show the world that their version of "good" hair no longer exists. And that we all have good hair because we take care of it.

In this video I did an experiment using multiple products to see what worked and what didn't.
Products used are:
Cantu Shea Butter
Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding
Tresemme Moisture Rich condish
Carol's Daughter hair milk Light

I no longer use any of these products; except when I prepoo I do use Tressemme Moisture Rich Condish. The reason I don't use them anymore is because they never really worked once I went completely natural. Which is crazy right ?? Well the Cantu Shea Butter products I do enjoy once in a while, if I run out of Shea Moisture anything I can always go back to them.
I hope this video helps you all understand the journey it took to get to where I am today and that it didn't happen over night :)

Thanks for reading
