1 REALLY Great Reason to Drink Kombucha Tea!


By Kira Sparkles

After being sick for nearly a week, with no appetite and unable to stomach anything except for a little water, I woke up feeling like an entirely new woman, like I was never sick in the first damn place. I felt radiant and amazing and my mood was sky high! It’s going to sound crazy, but I owe this to a fizzy, fermented tea called Kombucha. It sounds like some white, hippie bullshit but let me wax poetic and make you care for a second.

How to Wash Protective Braid Styles This Summer

Discovering Natural
Hi Naturals, 

With the weather being so hot and people taking vacations and needing their hair to not turn from a defined twistout to an Afro in the humid weather, doing styles like crochet twists and braids is an excellent alternative! However, many people feel like they cannot wash their hair while in these styles. I feel that it is crucial to do so. “Out of a healthy scalp, comes healthy hair”... right?

Here's a video I did showing how I wash my crochet braids after returning from a week-long cruise filled with swimming in chlorine and salt water. Hope it's helpful! -Discovering Natural

Make These DIY Recycled Christmas Stockings: Perfect For Friends, Co-Workers or Kids!


By Jashima Wadehra

It’s that time of year! The grocery shopping never ends and neither do the school bake sales, friendsgivings, secret Santa’s or gift exchanges.

As a kid, I️ LOVED bringing my friends treats for every holiday and my birthday. And when money was tight and the $0.99 store was within walking distance, I️ learned to be resourceful. I’d start by hoarding my mom’s Trader Joe or other pretty grocery store bags post her shopping excursions. Then I’d make my way to the dollar store and pick up some standard thin glossy ribbon.

This DIY craft project is perfect to do with the your kids during the holiday season, or even for various holiday events! This year I intend on making a handful and filling them with travel-sized toiletries for a local shelter- get creative!

Yo Gurl JoJo Shows Us How To Make An Easy DIY Deodorant!

YoGurlJoJo 
By Erickka Sy Savané

So the other day, we ran out of deodorant. My 8-year-old, who loves youtube says, 'let's make some ourselves!' At first I'm all, is she crazy? Why do that when I can just buy it? Then she finds this video, and it all began to make so much sense. Regular deodorants have aluminum in them, which are known to cause disease, plus they cost more in the long run than getting these ingredients that you probably already have in your home. Think about it, let's keep that money and stay healthy! 

Thanks JoJo
