10 Tips For Successfully Kicking Food Cravings

Kicking Food Cravings

It's a new year and a new you, right? How many of you are planning to eat right, exercise and lose a few (or a lot) of pounds? While most of us will roll into February already denouncing that diet, some of us really wanna get it right this time and need some pointers. One of the biggest challenges women face when trying to lose weight is the overbearing cravings that keep the mind off  the task at hand and more about eating all the wrong things. 

Cravings are just intense desires for a particular food and they are often just in our heads. Fat, salt and sugar (sugar is the worst for me!) literally make the reward center of our brains light up. This is science so it's going to take science to figure out how to fight them. With the help of experts in the field of nutrition, we've got a list that will help to curb those cravings and keep you on the right track to your weight loss goals and a healthier lifestyle.

How To Create The Best Natural Hair Blowout

Natural Hair Blowout

Many newly Naturals are participating in NO-HEAT Challenges (I'll explain next week!) but for many new and veteran Naturals, rocking a straight style like a blowout is a sexy style that is fun to wear from time to time. Now, I'm promoting rocking straight hair (from heat) too often as heat can damage our strands but I am offering some tips to keep your style not only moisturized but lasting.


Straight hair is a lovely option for many naturals but it can be a dangerous process as it can damage the hair if not applied correctly or used too often. However, there is a way to not only stave off heat damage but to keep your strands healthy and moisturized. Here are seven vital tips to longer lasting blowouts that do not compromise your hair's moisture.

Top Anti-Aging Treatments For Black Women To Try In 2017

Top Anti-Aging Treatments For Black Women To Try In 2017

As a woman in my late 40's, I worry about aging just like every other woman. I understand that "black don't crack", but it can wane from stress, the natural aging process and be negatively affected by weather like the sun. I just want to help it along a little and realize I am not alone. 


Many black women suffer from hyperpigmentation or Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). PIH is skin darkening and discoloration that are produced unevenly in spots or patchves. This occurs because cells that normally produce brown pigment (melanin) evenly across your skin jump into overdrive and produce too much of it.

10 Tips For Finding The Perfect Natural Hair Stylist

10 Tips For Finding The Perfect Natural Hair Stylist

Many women who decide to go Natural are quite unsure of how to do it and whether they CAN do it all alone. It sounds scary and complicated but I promise you, thousands of women have done it before you and continue to do so. I'm one of them and while it was hard over eleven years ago, it has become an easier path because of all the knowledge, products and persons willing to help.


Despite all the help, many women who go natural still want a professional in their life to help them with their journey. Whether it is just for trims or for styling or even for maintenance like caring for Locs; some just want a stylist on board.  Are natural hairstylists a thing an if so, where are they?  Fret not, as they exist but not everyone who CLAIMS to do natural hair actually CAN DO natural hair. Here are some vital tips to find that special professional.

Happy Friday & Question Of The Day!

Happy Friday & Question Of The Day!

Happy Friday Naturals! Looking forward to the weekend but wanted to check in with you and see how things were going with a question of the day. With the winter blast wreaking havoc on our bodies, we have to remember it does the same with our hair. So, just how often are you deep conditioning this winter? Our hair needs it all year round but during harsher climates, it becomes a necessity.

What I'm Giving Up & Giving Into In 2017

What I'm Giving Up & Giving Into In 2017

I want to start out by saying thank you. Thank you to all the naturals, style and beauty lovers who have made this blog a success. I truly appreciate the follows, questions, and love you give me weekly. Now...let's get down to what's going on and where I'm headed. 

I've been blogging for over six years now (lawd!) and when this started out it was a journey not only into my natural hair path but to share what was needed in hair and beauty for the black woman over 30.  This blog has become a space for accurate information and news on black women who rock natural hair and love learning about all things natural. No worries, as this will continue but I want to keep you abreast on some changes in my life and the life of this blog.
