POP QUIZ: What's Good On Salad And On Hair? (Hint: It's Not Kale)


No longer considered a poor man’s food or simply a garnish, watercress is a leafy green cruciferous that is worthy of the label “super food”. A peppery vegetable in the Brassicaceae family along with broccoli, cauliflower and rocket, it is cultivated almost exclusively in spring-fed streams. Watercress has high levels of antioxidants and contains vitamins A, B, C, and E, folate, calcium, and beta-carotene. It is also rich in fiber, potassium, calcium phosphorous, and iron. 

Kiwi Seed Oil: Finally A Very Light Oil For Fine Hair

Kiwi Seed Oil: Finally A Very Light Oil For Fine Hair


Kiwi is not just for consumption (though we do love it for that). It is also an overlooked wonder for your hair and kiwi seed oil is a light way to moisturize your hair if it is feeling brittle.

What is Kiwi Seed Oil?

Kiwifruit (Actinidia deliciosa) is indigenous to Southeast Asia and has been known to the inhabitants of China and Southeast Asia since ancient times. According to Medical News Today, it was formerly known as the Chinese gooseberry but many mistakenly associate it only with New Zealand because it became popular when they started exporting the fruit around 50 years ago. It bears the name kiwi or kiwifruit rather than Chinese gooseberry in order to avoid the high duties charged on berries and because it shared some of the same characteristics as New Zealand’s national symbol, the kiwi bird which is also small, brown, and fuzzy. This wonder fruit is now cultivated in Chili, Italy, New Zealand, and the United States.

Difference Between Deep Conditioning, Hair Mask & Hair Treatment



Although they have similar purposes, there are slight differences in the application and benefits of a deep conditioner, hair mask and a hair treatment. Let’s start with deep conditioning.

Deep Conditioning
This technique adds moisture back into your hair that has been lost due to everyday styling, weather and products. I personally have found that doing a deep conditioner once a week, replenishes that moisture that the hair needs in order to stay healthy and grow. There are a couple ways that you can deep condition your hair. One way, is to purchase a deep conditioner. I enjoy using the small packs that you can find at just about any drug store. ORS Deep Conditioning pack is one of my favorites (cost around $2 per pack). Of course, since the packs are fairly small, I usually end up buying 2.

Seriously Natural Spotlight: Mel

Tell me a little about yourself and your hair journey.
My name is Melodie Miller (@getslimwithmelodie on Instagram) and I am from Delaware. I’m 20 years old and a junior in college, studying education. I love having natural hair because it is so versatile and beautiful. It feels so good to be a part of a community in which African American women embrace their natural hair and wear it proudly.

How long have you been natural? Have you always embraced your curls?
I guess you could say that I’ve been natural my whole life, but I suffer from heat damage. I’ve been transitioning from heat damage for almost 2 years. I had a really hard time embracing my curls. Coming from a predominantly Caucasian area, I often felt pressured to have long, straight hair. I was never comfortable with my natural hair, until I actually learned how to appreciate it. Now, I don’t know how I couldn’t see the beauty in my natural hair before!
