Reverting: Did I Get Heat Damage? + A Giveaway

Being natural for nearly 4 years, I’ve learned my hair. I’ve studied it, and been through trail and error to make sure I’m doing everything in my power to keep it healthy. Daily moisturizing, maintaing my protein to moisture balance, limiting the usage of heat on my hair to once a year only by professionals.

New Mom, Who This?

Ever since I gave birth to the worlds most beautiful little girl, I’ve been asked the same question repeatedly. “How does it feel to be a mom?” I never have a response, simply because the answer isn’t easy to put into words.

When it was confirmed that I was expecting the two thoughts that instantly went through my mind were, “Wow, I’m going be a mom” and “I hope I don’t shit on myself giving birth”. August 10th was the calculated big day, but baby and I talked and agreed on August 19th, for my own selfish reasons. She clearly disregarded our talk.
