My natural hair journey has ended up being a whole lot more than I initially bargained for, in a good way! It has allowed me to work on my research skills and practice patience during my sessions of how-to videos via YouTube. The videos have been more than phenomenal in making this transition back to natural one with more options than just looking like a hot ass mess everyday. I have learned soooo much from the naturalistas before me, that I wish I could repay them somehow! …and then I realized, hey, I can do alil video-making of my own. Then, after an entire day of playing around with some videomaker on my tablet andnintroducing it to YouTube these fingers said “hey! This ISSs kinda fun!!”
The next day my creation had 17 WHOLE views haha (this number is low compared to the billions of people who watch some of my favorite vloggers like Naptural85 and Joulezy)but hey its a start! And a very fun one. I have no expectations to become youtube famous or anything. Just extremely exciited to have found a new hobby that will hopefully help someone a half as much as my favorite youtubers have helped me.
….Never know, this skill may be useful one day

ok, so Im gonna let you in on alittle secret. This secret is very stupid, so if you tell people they’ll think I’m some crazy chick… okay… here it is…You ready?
– I am a product junkie!..yesss the big PJ!!! lol not only with like hair stuff, but nail polish, scarfs, body stuff….home remedies.You name it. I’ve probably tried everything under the sun, most recent being Apple Cider Vinegar-YUCK!
I originally picked up a bottle of Braggs Organic ACV because of all the raving reviews I’ve see from people using it on their hair- and I must admit…I incorporated it into my last wash day ( with the straighten and trim) and my hair is literally theeeeee softest that I have ever found it to be without leaving the salon. Even three days later! I’d absolutely co-sign this product for hair rinse, does wonders! However, that’s not why I said YUCK earlier.
Last week right before Aunt Florina decided to visit I began to drink a teaspoon in of ACV in my tea. Here are the observations:
1. It was extremely disgusting and hardly maskable with even the Rawest of raw honey ( the paste kind)
2. The acidity gave me a case extreme heart burn ( which I never get)
3. It made a bunch of little itchy pimples pop up all over my face ( YES this is the problem)
Now me being the soldier that I am, tried to disregard the bumps on my face and blame them on Aunt Florina. I let my face clear up and then, even with the terribleness of #1 and #2, on Sunday I decided to politely have another cup of Diluted ACV with raw honey. Monday my entire body itched!!!! and those damn tiny bumps are back and I woke up today with the same symptoms!! The good thing is my city is -8 degrees outside today so I don’t have to leave the house and expose my stupid rash. GRRRR!!
I’m done with our drinking relationship! But my hair loves you, so in that case you may stay in the cupboard
this past Friday night I came down with body aches,runny,nose,and a horrible cough. I remembered i had a piece of ginger root in my fridge and began to simmer it in boiling water for (green) tea w/lemon. After about 3 cups and alot of sleep i felt almost normal Sunday( no aches,minimal congestion and cough, and by Monday felt COMPLETELY better!-my newest truest cold/ flu remedy!
