4 Things Every Curly/Coily Should Know 1. Dryness is the enemy: You may be tired of hearing about keeping your hair moisturized, but it can’t be emphasized enough! The weather and other elements attack our coily hair and dry it out. Using a moisturizer daily or when needed is important when trying to prevent breakage and promotes growth and shine. 2. Oil could be the enemy: If you’re applying oil to your hair to “seal” the cuticle and wondering why your hair looks dry regardless, you may be applying your oil at the wrong time during your regimen. Applying oil to your hair before your leave-in conditioner or moisturizer closes the cuticle. This blocks the moisture you’re attempting to add to your hair. Oil is like a cherry on an…

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Food, Wellness
Up until last year I made fries with yellow or red potatoes. They were fried most times, seldom baked. Then somehow I discovered sweet potato fries. My love for sweet potato fries ran deep, but I had never made them myself. So I looked up a recipe and tried them! This dish is now a staple in my kitchen. A quick side dish for a meal tossed in garlic and Parmesan cheese or for dessert tossed in brown sugar and cinnamon. Check out the video below and try them out! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6QS8N5L5Rs Do you cook sweet potato fries? Do you fry them? Bake them? P.S. For crisper fries, coat with oil and cook on 450 degrees F.

The Q-Redew Hair Steamer

The Q-Redew Hair Steamer

Beauty, Hair, Hair Care Article, Hair Care Products, Hairstyling Article, Wellness
Over the winter my hair was so angry at me. At first I thought it was because I was neglecting it, but in retrospect my regimen really wasn't that different than in other seasons. I really thought that the wash n go winter I'd hoped for was not possible. Until one day the Q-Redew came into my life and everything changed. I used it to re-shape  and restore moisture in my hair mid-week. After a few uses I realized that I COULD wash n go each with just 2 extra minutes added to my regimen mid-week! My schedule and my hair didn't suffer. As the weather warms up I still use the Q-Redew to re-shape my hair and it's the best de-tangler I've heard used (stay tuned for that instructional vid). Check…

Shea Moisture Color System Review

I colored my hair using the new Shea Moisture Hair Color System in Dark Golden Blonde. After watching several reviews I knew that I would need to apply the color twice (one to lighten, one to color), so I bought two boxes (from Target) and applied each two weeks apart. Have you applied color to your natural hair using the Shea Moisture Color system? What has your experience with it? Enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2xxRuCr-qFE Peace & Blessings Kala

Plantains are one of my top 5 favorite foods! I love to fry them in coconut oil and recently tried making them more of a dessert. I buy 4-5 at a time at my fruit and veggie market and patiently wait for them to ripen to my liking. Enjoy my recipe and let me know what you think about the video? Easy/difficult to follow?
