Keep these tips in mind when you care for your natural hair this fall.

  1. Do deep condition your hair regularly. Deep conditioning ensures that your natural hair remains moisturized. Moisturized hair is less susceptible to breakage and split ends.
  2. Do style your hair in protective hairstyles to protect your ends
  3. Don’t wear woolen hats, caps, or beanies as they will cause dryness
  4. Do eat healthy amounts of vegetables, fish like salmon, and fruits
  5. Do take a multivitamin, biotin, or Omega 3 supplement to aid in hair growth. (Always consult your doctor before taking a supplement)
  6. Do hot oil treatments regularly to prevent dry scalp and dandruff
  7. Don’t neglect to wash your hair regularly as this cleans clogged pores which prevent hair growth
  8. Do use a microfiber towel, old T-shirt, or pillow case to dry your hair after washing
  9. Don’t forget to moisturize your edges or any part of your hair exposed to the weather. Condition your hair with heavy creams and butters.
  10. Do use a humidifier to keep moisture in the air in your house. You can also steam your hair regularly for extra conditioning.

Try making this grapeseed oil + lavender face serum to keep the skin healthy this coming Fall. Grapeseed oil is high in vitamin E and is great for dark spots and lines. Lavender oil is a powerful antiseptic that helps treat acne.

- You’ll need a container (I use a spray bottle)

- a dropper for your oils

- I fill half my bottle with grapeseed oil

- add about 20 ML of lavender oil

- nothing too fancy!

That’s it, very quick and easy. I use this as a nighttime moisturizer in the Summer months. It takes time, but you’ll be giving fresh face in no time! Enjoy ++

THIS IS A STRESSFUL TIME. 

IF YOU CAN HAVE SOME GINGER TEA OR BLUEBERRIES. 

THOSE ARE NATURAL ADAPTOGENS AND ADAPTOGENS ARE REGARDED AS NATURE’S THERMOSTAT. THEY HELP REGULATE YOU HORMONAL/ENDOCRINE SYSTEM’S IMBALANCES AND FOR US THAT MEANS REDUCING AND AIDING IN EVENING THOSE SPIKED CORTISOL AND LOW SERATONIN LEVELS THAT CAN BE HAPPENING :)

THEY ARE CHEAP AND ACCESSIBLE VERSUS THE VERY POPULAR GINSENG AND MACA :)

Black People, Remember to Take Care of Yourselves

  1. Remember to stay hydrated. It’s still warm outside in most places in the U.S.
  2. Remember to eat something. It’s easy to forget to recharge during times of tragedy/crisis.
  3. Find time to rest.
  4. Take a warm bath or shower to relax yourself.
  5. Try to breathe. Take a few moments for deep breathing…
