This is Why I Stopped Co-Washing

In the era of curly hair awareness, education and acceptance we have all but abandoned shampoo in many hair care regimens. Many of my favorite curly bloggers and YouTubers swear by co-washing and credit this practice with hair growth and maintaining moisture. Often times we hear horror stories about how shampoo leaves our precious curls feeling dry or stripped. I had the same thought process, that co-washing was all I needed, up until a few months ago I only washed my hair with a moisturizing shampoo once or twice every few months. However, when I noticed my hair health was failing and growth was stagnant I knew I needed to switch it up and reincorporate shampoo into my regimen.

The Best Products for 4c Natural Hair



This is for 4C women all over the world, for your shrinkage and your super tight curls. Celebrate your coils and give your scalp a tender rub as you read this because your hair is beautiful and don’t let anyone tell you any differently. What makes 4C hair special? As defined by NaturallyCurly, “your densely packed hair is similar to a 4b, but experiences less definition and more shrinkage. The tightly coiled strand texture ranges from super fine, thin and soft to wiry and coarse. It is very delicate.” With that being said, special hair has special needs. It’s easy to get frustrated while trying to find the best products for your hair. Here’s a list of the basic starter kit products you’ll need for 4C hair.

Maya Angelou's Prayer and Meditation Practice!


"Along this path of knowledge, I find that prayer and meditation are elemental. Guidance comes from those practices. Sometimes in meditation one really tries to think of nothing. I do, anyway. I try not to have any focus or use any focus to get away from everything. I try to make myself a quiet vessel, a quiet pool where ideas can rise. Prayer, on the other hand, does focus and keeps the focus in focus. I think that I use both to get myself out of the way. Sometimes our daily problems can so impede our progress to quietude that one needs to step aside. I think when we step aside, when get apart from everyone else and any other ideas and meditate and pray, I think that we can be led to the knowledge of how to meet our next challenge, whatever it is--whether it's physical, psychological, practical, social. I believe that."

"Some people tell me I have an abundant life, and I have to agree. There's a song that I've known forever, 'My father's rich in houses and land, He holds the world... all the world in his hands. His coffers are filled with silver and gold. My father's riches, he has riches untold. And I am a child of a king.' So, if I'm a child of the king and my father has everything and loves me... you understand? So, I ask for everything- everything I need, and I have much more than I need." - Maya Angelou
