My Hair Needs Protein??

One thing about being on this healthy hair journey is that I’ve really learned to listen to my hair.  I noticed that although my hair was clearly moisturized to the touch, it was still appearing dull and lifeless.  I was moisturizing and sealing in the morning and at night so my hair could not be as thirsty as it was portraying.  I couldn’t quite understand what was going on.   At the first sign that my hair is acting a little differently, I quickly jump to access and combat the problem to get my hair back to its healthy state.
There are a couple of reasons my hair may be looking dry and dull and they are lack of moisture and lack of protein.  I don’t think it’s a lack of moisture so it has to be a lack of protein.

Outfit and Hair Of The Night

This is my outfit of the Night

A friend had a birthday celebration and I wore my hair in a fro hawk.
Got several compliments on my hair.

This is a super simple hairstyle.  6 braids on both sides and a twist out for the middle and back.

The top is a black with stones on the neckline, grey jeans and black stilettos.

Let me know what you think!

Start Your Own Hair Braiding Business

Hair braiding is one, of the few arts, that has survived the test of time for African Americans.  Black women were braiding hair before they were taken from Africa and sold into slavery.  Those beautiful, black women have passed their braiding techniques down to their children throughout the generations.  If you were fortunate enough to be blessed with the fingers for braiding then you can make money with your art.  This isn’t a get rich quick scheme but some practical ideas that could possibly bring you enough money to supplement your day job’s income.

Shea Moisture Products at Walgreens

Oh happy day!! I can now get Shea Moisture products in the city where I live. That's right, Shea Moisture products are now sold at my local Walgreens! Typically, I would have to drive 35 or so miles to the closest Target to get any of the product in the Shea Moisture product line, but not anymore!

The products are $9.99 for individual items and $19.99 for the repair kits. I purchased the shampoo, curl style milk, hold & shine mist and the curl enhancing smoothie.
