Hey Ya’ll! It’s Erica! So I have been experimenting with co-washing again. “Co-washing is something that you do not something you buy.”- Anthony Dickey The technique is very important. So here is how I co-wash my hair.
Section hair into two parts
Finger detangle under water
Apply conditioner to hair shaft and ends (I focus on my ends the most)
Let it sit for about 5-10 min and then rinse
The mistake that I made in the past was putting the conditioner on my scalp. Conditioners do not belong on the scalp; just the hair shaft and ends. It caused so much build up that I had to clarify with Dr. Bronners several times. That was the only shampoo that would thoroughly removed all of that build up.
Co-washing can be a good addition to your hair routine if done properly. It will never replace shampoo but it can keep the curls poppin’ in between wash days.
Do you co-wash? What is your favorite conditioner to use?!?
Hey Ya’ll! When you feeling yourself it becomes a Mood. Confidence, self love and acceptance is ever present.

Hey Ya’ll! As you all know majority of our products are pretty natural… no silicones, sulfates etc. But sometimes you have to branch out and see what ‘s the true tea.

Hey Ya’ll! I decided to try Bantu Knots. I wanted to branch out and see what other things I could do to my hair. Well… it didn’t go so well.
I don’t have a picture of the actual bantu knots but as you can see there is a lot of frizz. That is because my hair was still damp when I took it down. Big. Mistake.
My hair shrinks severely when it dries and it is super coily. So the bantu knots became tighter the more my hair dried. I had to keep loosening them… it was just too much work.
My arm and hands were hurting from all that twisting and I was kind of over the whole process.
The next time I attempt these again my hair will be dry. It will save time, edges and scalp. lol
We all want to make our lives as simple as possible. With so many things going on in one day, sometimes the simplest tasks can become overwhelming. So here are some life hacks that can make your day a little easier…
Stinky Garbage Disposal
So at some point the garbage disposal will have odor from all the food that is chopped up in it. Here is a way to keep it smelling fresh and clean…Lemons. Yes, Lemons, cut them in half and run the garbage disposal and it will smell fresh for up to two weeks.
No More Makeup Highlight…OMG!!!!
Don’t fret you can use any shimmer eye shadow of your choice from a palette with your brush and apply. But don’t forget to blend, blend, blend!!
Out of Color Corrector
Red lipstick can be used to get rid of dark under eye circles. You can use either a brush or apply the stick directly to the skin, blend out that red color. Then apply your concealer and voila…no more dark circles.
Clear Nail Polish
So for my ladies who wear stocking or panty holes clear nail polish will help stop the run. Apply it to the end of the run and it won’t go any further. Also, when wearing a button down shirt and one of the buttons looks like its about to come off, apply the polish to the thread and it won’t unravel.
Love the Candles But Not the Smoke
We love candles and sometimes we don’t have a match, but we have dry spaghetti in the pantry. You can use the dry spaghetti as a match and light the candle. Also, when blowing out the candle the smoke can be irritating because it lingers long after the candle has been blown out. So use the top that came with the candle and put it on top of the lit candle and snuff out the flame and the smoke stays trapped in. F.Y.I…when you go to open the candle next time to light it, it won’t smell like smoke just the candle.
We hope that these life hacks can help you just like they have helped us make our lives just a little bit easier! Have you tried any of these hacks? Let us know!!
