What defines beauty?

We live in a day and age where true beauty is distorted. Our focus is being pulled in all sorts of direction from the media when it comes to the latest trends, beauty tips, exercise regimens and etc. Subconsciously man and women are programmed not to think for themselves. As a result, young men and especially young women have forgotten who they are. Furthermore, this identity crisis is evident as it forces us to seek validation in the clothes we wear, the food we eat and from social status. We are trapped to believe lies of not being enough. And as we attempt to “fix” our imperfections with these so called quick fixes we are left more stripped of self esteem because the illusion of self perfection is unattainable. It is said that “beauty is in the eyes of the beholder” but how can one begin to see such beauty unless one dare to first see it in themselves? For this reason, I invoke every man and women of every shade of melanin, size and hair texture to dear to love yourself in spite of any perceive imperfections because they are what make you perfectly beautiful!

How to take care of your hair texture?

I liken taking care of one’s textured hair to that of a romantic relationship. What works for someone else might not necessarily work for you. But the good news is you will become an expert through trial and error. So go ahead and experiment! There will be days where your hair is doing all the right things, days when it is “giving you life” so to speak. It is moisturized; curls are popping as your hair blows in the wind as you walk in slow motion like a scene from a movie. And there will also be days when your hair wants to have a mind of its own. Refusing to co operate. When this happens DO NOT PANIC! Just let it be!

Type of products you need?

You are already off to a good start by simply having the basic essentials such as shampoo, conditioner, leave in conditioner and a daily moisturizer. The essentials can also be specifically tailored to one’s hair needs. For example, if your hair is colored opt for a colored treated shampoo and conditioner. Experiencing dryness, get a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. And get weekly oil treatments. If there are a lot of product build up in your hair, opt for a clarifying shampoo. After getting your solid essentials one may chose to take it up a notch by getting hair gel, water bottle, hair pins & a wide tooth comb for styling and detangling purposes.

Natural hair products vs. chemical hair products.

There are arrays of brands in the market that claim to use only natural ingredients in their hair products. Before moving forward, let us define what “natural” means. According to the Merriam Webster dictionary, natural is defined as “not having any extra substances or chemicals added, not containing anything artificial”. Water should also be a key component in natural products. Always look for natural oils such as Shea butter, Jojoba, Lemongrass, Argan, Sweet Almond, Coconut and Olive. Also, do keep in mind that not all natural products is worth your hard earn bucks. Finding the right products that work great with your hair is a journey! But when you do find what works stick with it. Since the journey is already overwhelming in itself it should not have to break your pocket.
