Hola Chicas,

I'm giving away 6 Conditioning Baskets (worth ~$90 each) this month (October 2014) to question askers and answerers!

If you see a curly-in-need who has asked a question under a post, answer it! If you are a curly who has a question that needs an answer, ask it! Not under this post, on all the posts!

The first three baskets will go to the three curlies with the highest number of posts this month (10/1-10/31, comments from previous months don't count) and the next three will go to three randomly selected commenters.  Past winners are eligible!

Which posts/articles count for the contest? All of them!  Good luck!

*contest ends October 31, 2014 at 5pm EST*
*comments on this article/post are welcome, but please comment on others throughout the blog as well!*

Later Gators,
Nik

To know us is to understand this side of us, so as I peak your interest with Crisco, do not frown up it! You know I am going somewhere good with this.

"Failure is a Much More Faithful Teacher Than Immediate Success."

The Truth About My Disappointing Book Sales

This one was hard to write but so necessary. When I began this entrepreneurial journey, I promised that I would be honest and I would make this thing accessible. This chasing dreams kind of life. This surrendering and risking everything kind of life. This yellow brick road of mine.

Before you ever hear me say, 'it all just kind of fell into place', you will hear the honest truth about how it first all fell apart.

Last year, I walked away from a career that paid me well and gave me stability, but made me feel like a stranger to myself. I have been up and down and all around since then, but I have never looked back. It's been worth every sacrifice.

DIY Shampoo Bars for Gentle Cleansing



I think it is safe to say that most naturals who have dabbled in DIY recipes for their own tresses feel comfortable working with natural oil blends, conditioners, and even gels. Shampoos or shampoo bars on the other hand may seem a tad taxing from the outset, as the main component of the task is to cleanse, and cleansing means working with surfactants.
