Random~Beautiful Hair

I found this photo of LisaRaye in Essence. Her hair is gorgeous with these curls and chestnut color. I would love to have this color and look. Here is something to aspire to.

The Benefits of Glycerin

Glycerin: For more than 225 years, glycerin has been one of the most versatile household ingredients, with almost 1,500 known end uses including many applications as an ingredient or processing aid in cosmetics, toiletries, personal care, food and drugs.

Glycerin is a natural humectant which means it attracts moisture to skin and hair. If you take a look you may see some forms of glycerin (glycerol) in your daily products such as lotion and hair products. I have decided to add glycerin to all of my body butters, lotions and conditioners to promote more moisture. I purchased mine at Wal-Mart in the pharmacy section by the Witch Hazel, Alcohol and Peroxide for about $2 and some change. The website below is definitely filled with lots of information about essential oils and their uses. Check it out and see what you come up with for simple home remedies yourself.

For some tips on the uses of glycerin and other natural products in home remedies visit Here are some links to check to get you started: beauty bites, product info and seasonal hints. I have been researching Vitamin E and noticed that some claim it removes scars and others that it does not. I guess it depends on the person because I have been using the Vitamin E stick pictured above from Wal-Mart vitamin section and it is definitely lightening dark marks and some freckles that I have on the side of my nose. Several people have noticed that they are disappearing lol. So, it holds true that what may not work for one may work for another. I am going to keep using it and add Vitamin E to my oil cleansing mix for my face and see how that works out. Until next time…

Decisions, Decisions

I am in a bit of a dilemma about the direction I want this blog to take. At first, this started as a place to document my hair progress and random things I have going on in my hair journey. Now, I see so many wonderful blogs and I have some ideas of things that I would like to do. I am going to take the next few weeks to do some research on the direction I want to take and possibly researching and reviewing products for various companies. I pray that I can come to a decision about this that I will be happy with and that fulfills my dreams.

Dilemma #2 is...I was scheduled to relax my hair 3 days ago and am trying to decide if I want to stretch for 2 more weeks. I am not experiencing any breakage and my new growth is actually manageable. Thanks for Hydratherma Naturals products we are not fighting each other for control. My hair is growing and as soon as I get the extra time I plan to post some hair updates that show comparison shots and my progress. I was taking part in a deep conditioning and no trim challenge from October 1-December 1 and it was quite beneficial to my hair. My hair is very moisturized and I really love deep conditioning so will definitely be continuing that. I think I will go for another challenge on my own of three months with the same requirements~deep conditioning and no trimming after I relax my hair. I think that's it for random stuff and I will try in the next few weeks to get these issues resolved and do some updates.

I wish everyone a Blessed and Happy Holiday Season!!!
