Ever wondered what that logo mean. Me too!!! Based on my research so far it means grown or raised naturally with no pesticides or chemicals. I remember watching a movie called Food Inc and was totally disgusted. Eww... I had to stop watching halfway through. The way these animals were being treated was not right. I'm not a hardcore animal lover but it did bother me. No wonder some of the meats be looking like they're on steroids. It's one of the reasons I started a more eco-friendly lifestyle. So, one day I walked into whole foods and made a quick U-Turn out. Lawdamercy, why so expensive??? I love whole foods and what they stand for. I'm just still waiting on my loan to be approved by the bank. So that I can do my entire grocery there. LOL. Whenever I see that logo I know that it's better for the environment, the farmers, and most importantly ME. Hoping nothing toxic is going inside my body. I'm also aware that some companies claim to be green and they really aren't. All the more reasons to read those labels.
To find out why it costs more read this.

To Kate: you may kill me for this...Your interview got lost in the midst of my email, but netter late than never!
P.S: I love your interview, its in my top 5 loves! lol
Introduce Yourself.(Your name, interest, hobbies etc)
my name is kate. i am a student, taking bachelor of commerce as my first degree then later on taking medicine for my second degree.. i'm twenty years of age. i love making myself happy and not having to be tied down to any man...lol, thats in other words translated to mean that am single and loving it :-)
i have a great interest in medicine, thats why i want to take it as a second degree. i also like experimenting on natural products like putting egg into my hair and letting it sit under a shower cap for about two hours then later washing it out...i find that fun. i also love to play the piano but havent gotten a chance to ever since i finished high school. when i was in high school i had a really good book that would teach me how to play piano cuz it was numbered and not drawn those crotchetted symbols for music. i am a first aider by profession too so i tend to always be on the look out for anyone needing my assistance. my hobbies are writing...not books but my blog or journal... i love watching movies on a laptop..i find movies on the television screen abit boring so ad prefer to have them in dvd format and watch on the lappy.


Why did you decide to let the Creamy Crack go or were you Natural All Your life?
haha, creamy crack is a really funny term...am literally dying of laughter here...lol, nwa, i decided to let it go when i realized just how much damage it had caused me. my hair was so dead and broken and brittle and ... horrible i was not even able to rock my own hair. i always had to hide it beneath weaves, wigs, braid extensions and all those sort of things. i wasnt happy that i wasnt being myself with all the fake things on my head. so i finally decided on 12-12-2010 to go to the salon and get my big chop. to show you just how much i hated that relaxed hair is that i have looked all over and i cant seem to find a picture of me with the relaxed hair...i couldnt rock it on its own. i am now 24 days natural and i will not go back the relaxed route again...never!!

What was the hardest part of going Natural for you?
the hardest part is that i have always had a problem with my self esteem. i tend to always care about what other people think about me than what i myself thinks about myself. like now, i went and had the haircut and what other people thought of it is what could have kept me going. its something horrible and i need to change that asap!! its a new year, new hairstyle and definitely, new attitude... complete 2011 package... another hard part was that due to all the braiding and lack of maintenance of my relaxed hair, my ends broke horribly horribly horribly so having had my hair cut, the ends are really visible right now so it kinda makes me abit scared to rock the natural hair but am trying to outgrow that fear.
the other part was finding the products that i had seen people on youtube, twitter, blogs suggested. i wasnt really sure if i would get them cuz am currently in africa and i have never cared for my hair so i was abit scared that i wouldnt know how to use the products well and such.

Once You BC'ed what were the reactions and your support system like?
haha, when i bc'd, i loved the look so so so much that the first thing i did was to upload a photo onto my facebook page and shock on myself, everyone was like, wow you look amazing, your hair rocks, the haircut is definitely the new hot, bla bla bla, so i was so so happy that some people loved the cut.
my youngest brother though, haha, he was really against me cutting my hair. i dont even know if he wanted me to stay with my patches of hair when it was relaxed or what. he was so against me cutting it that he would always go like, "dont even walk with me, now why did you cut your hair...." lol. so i decided to go visit my nana and spend about a month...boy oh boy, didnt my brother miss me, he kept calling to tell me of how much he misses me, how much he loves me,,,,lol, anyway, babies are like that.
my grandmother on the other hand was so amazed, she was so so happy that i had chosen the nappyroute and every day, she would tell me of how beautiful my hair was... i was very happy and it instilled some little confidence in me that this days i walk out and when am halfway gone, i realize, oh, am walking with my twa and somehow, i get so much strength that when i see people stare at me, its because the twa looks too amazing :-)

Do you ever feel less than Beautiful with your Low cut? How do You deal with it?
yes i do sometimes feel less beautiful with my twa. i am used to people complimenting my braided hair and all that and really, my twa is very much braid-able with extensions but i want to avoid that because of my broken edges for now...later, i will braid my own natural hair and be able to rock twist outs and flat twists and etc.
how i deal with that is by always talking with people who are natural like me. they may have long natural hair and when they tell me of their journeys, i realize that they sure did go through the twa phase and now they are where they are and with determination, i will also reach there and probably past them :-) lol. i also tend to frequently use the products that i love and they boost my esteem so when i feel that my hair feels great, i definitely will feel good about myself and my low cut
i am newly natural so am experimenting on products to see which one works best for me and i think natural products that you can DIY are the best... i bought so many hair products that i decided, once am done with them, i will just stick to the natural foods that we eat and drink like eggs, yogurt, honey, tea, coffee and the likes :-)

What Motivates You to stay Natural? Do you Join Forums, blog, create items etc...

what motivates me to stay natural is the fruits of it. when i look at relaxed hair, to me it looks dead. you cant really style it other than by putting more and more chemicals to make it look amazing but still, with hair that is sticking on each other and has no life is just dead to me. actually, i love a full head, and relaxer does not look or feel full to me. with being natural, it is how God intended you and i to be. you know when he created us, he didnt put any relaxers on our heads to thereby call us beautiful, he called you beautiful with your natural hair. God does not lie so i figured that if he called me beautiful then i was beautiful indeed. relaxers now are going against God and if i look ugly because of relaxers, i shouldnt blame it on God cuz really, he called me beautiful when i didnt have relaxers so why should i try make myself more beautiful than how God already made me? such questions are what motivate me. i also see that natural hair grows really long and healthy and with relaxed hair, its rather hard to have such great lengths. i just joined kinky curly coily me's forum on natural hair and am yet to look for others so that i can join and get to learn more about natural hair. yeah i do have a blog and i read many of the blogs on natural hair too...every day. i also create for myself items like hair smoothies mostly :-) but i dont sell.... they are just for me..naturally selfish huh?! i want to test them on me then if they do good, i can sell...maybe,

Going Natural has impacted your life by....
going natural has actually made me more spiritual. the thought of thinking i am beautiful naturally has just made me so glad that all i can do is give glory and honour unto my heavenly father. what i just said up there about how he created us really opened my eyes. i was actually angry with God because i would always wonder why is it that he gave me such bad hair, when relaxed, and going natural made me realize that he did not give me the relaxed hair but better yet, he gave me the natural hair that is beautiful so i shouldnt blame God (sudanese name for dont blame God, happens to be my close friend's name, Chakuothbel)

What was the craziest remark you have received about Your New hairstyle?
haha, immediately i shaved my hair, the beautician that was doing that to me said it looked amazing but that i should put color the next weekend?!!!!?!?!?!! whaaat?!!!!!! i just shaved because of chemical damage and now she wants to put more chemicals on my hair...noooo!! i was watching black onyx videos and there is one she says that she had to shave again because of the color damage.... now that is not what i want, absolutely not!!
another comment i actually gave myself, i was wondering, wow, your edges are so broken that you look like your literally shaved your sides for a natural mohawk look...lol, i am always looking at my ends with tears in my eyes...but i hear castor oil helps them grow...av been massaging castor oil on the edges and really praying that they will grow back... i dont even know what kept me relaxed for so long...regrets :-(

What products do you use currently on Your hair that you can not live without?
haha, like i said, i just big chopped my hair so am still experimenting on my products so for now you can call me a product junkie who is in pursuit of her staple products.
i use shampoos with SLS but i am looking for one without it.
i use protein conditioner for himalaya products that is just too amazing, this one al keep.
i have hair oils, olive hair oil with conditioner which i love and will definitely continue using because it moisturizes my hair and conditions it at the same time, making it coily and well moisturized.
i have a t-tree organics leave in conditioner and i like it but it only locks in the moisture for a while and before i know it, my hair is dry again..... what do i do about moisture?? its my hardest bit about being natural

Do You have any hair goals that you wish to achieve?
yeah i want long healthy...healthy... and, eermmm, did i say healthy,... yeah healthy hair. the length can be anywhere past shoulder length, preferably midback lenght.. when it gets here i will be so so so so so happy but am not saying that longer will be bad, but mid back length will surely be good and i guess managable

What has been the best piece of advice you have relieved thus far?
the best piece of advice was from curlynugrowth, where she advized me on washing my hair daily... not with a shampoo, just washing it daily because stimulating the scalp enhances growth. you can also put a conditioner in after washing the hair because those oils are good so i normally take my shower twice a day and i definitely do shower without a showercap because i wet and massage the scalp in circular motion.
another advice i got but cant remember from who was about putting lots of oils on your hair prior to shampooing it.
another was where i was told that if your shampoo has SLS, you can add water and olive oil in it to dilute the SLS..amazing right?! :-)

What Would Be Your advice for those struggling with the Big Chop?
hmm, my advice would be that, "We Are Here Together."..lol, cz am also struggling with my big chop...but i would ask them to get to talk to people who have gone down the same road and are reaping its benefits right now. also watching alot of the youtube videos is rather encouraging when you see that you arent the only one natural and there are some really great people that will help you. sometimes i know, one may feel like asking too many questions bugs someone, but the secret to that is to ask politely and not to argue when answered.. you know there are such kinds of people where when they ask you something, they start arguing with you until your left wondering, okaaaay, if you knew that then why did you ask?! yeah :-)
Any Closing remarks?
hmm, i have written alot and i do hope its gonna be helpful to someone. there is plenty of advice out there on natural hair but you have to be choosy as to what to listen to and what not to. like me for example, my edges are broken. people tell me to braid my hair so that it grows, fine, that may be a possibility. then other people tell me that hair grows daily so i should just let it relax, it will grow on its own that i should just wash it daily and keep it moisturized. knowing that my edges are broken, of course i will listen to the one telling me to wash it and let it be. so, we can all think, its not wrong to ask questions when you dont understand something, but its also good when you weigh your options rationally. otherwise, i still have my twa, bought new earrings to compliment the look and am glad i chose the natural way. i assure you, no regrets what so ever when you have your hair moisturized :-)

My #naturalhair braidout tutorial

Learn about me some more! =)

Yes I did the Jamaican Tag!

Saturday, March 26, 2011

Learn about me some more! =)

*singing* I'm free....praise the Lord Im free...No longer bound...no more chains holding me!!!

Lol, Yes guys its the 25th of March meaning that I am officially out of rehab!! No relapses or regrets here!

'Life ain't been no crystal stair' these past three months. They have surely have had tacks in it but I sure did step over them. I have to admit that when I first started exactly three months ago, that being December 25... there was no way I thought that I could make it to the end. None whatsoever! If anyone knows me...I'm a spender. Not a material girl but a spender! If I see an item I like I feel as if I should buy it, if it is at a reasonable price of course! I never in a million years thought that I could go three months without purchasing hair products and guess what guys... I did! Now some of you may know that I purchased the tangle teezer...but its not against the rules to buy hair tools so ha! :P lol

Anyway, i have to say the most trying thing that got me these past three months is Self Doubt. It is a cruel cruel thing. Your biggest opponent is yourself in most situations and once you have conquered yourself, trust and believe me, you can conquer anything that comes your way!

Source

I felt like this whole challenge helped me see how much of problem I had and how I could actually maintain myself. Now if I am being totally honest, I would say where I lacked in hair products I made up for it with purchasing Jewelry and makeup...But I'm a natural spender that I stated earlier and to solve my spending problem, it will require a step by step process. This is why I am quite pleased that I passed my product junky rehab challenge and I can now create another challenge for myself.

The biggest rewarded besides saving money in this challenge would have to be building up tolerance and self control!

Now that I have self control I don't always have to see a hair product and go "Hey, maybe I should try that out!"

I encourage you all, if you haven't already, to try to find something that is weighing you down in life and make a challenge for yourself to stop. It is not going to be easy but in the end it will be rewarding! Trust me!

I'm Free!!! #naturalhair rehab

Friday, March 25, 2011

*singing* I'm free....praise the Lord Im free...No longer bound...no more chains holding me!!!

Lol, Yes guys its the 25th of March meaning that I am officially out of rehab!! No relapses or regrets here!

'Life ain't been no crystal stair' these past three months. They have surely have had tacks in it but I sure did step over them. I have to admit that when I first started exactly three months ago, that being December 25... there was no way I thought that I could make it to the end. None whatsoever! If anyone knows me...I'm a spender. Not a material girl but a spender! If I see an item I like I feel as if I should buy it, if it is at a reasonable price of course! I never in a million years thought that I could go three months without purchasing hair products and guess what guys... I did! Now some of you may know that I purchased the tangle teezer...but its not against the rules to buy hair tools so ha! :P lol

Anyway, i have to say the most trying thing that got me these past three months is Self Doubt. It is a cruel cruel thing. Your biggest opponent is yourself in most situations and once you have conquered yourself, trust and believe me, you can conquer anything that comes your way!

I felt like this whole challenge helped me see how much of problem I had and how I could actually maintain myself. Now if I am being totally honest, I would say where I lacked in hair products I made up for it with purchasing Jewelry and makeup...But I'm a natural spender that I stated earlier and to solve my spending problem, it will require a step by step process. This is why I am quite pleased that I passed my product junky rehab challenge and I can now create another challenge for myself.

The biggest rewarded besides saving money in this challenge would have to be building up tolerance and self control!

Now that I have self control I don't always have to see a hair product and go "Hey, maybe I should try that out!"

Sleeping as a primary function is used for restoring new brain cells and regenerating your body. It is when most of your body does the most repairing to keep you healthy. In fact when you deprive yourself of sleep, it can cause hair loss. With hair loss comes less hair!

There are some people who choose not to sleep because of their bust schedules and those who can't sleep because of Sleep Apnea or other sleep disorders.

Sleep Apnea can cause damages to the blood cells and capillaries found in your body. This disorder can also cause obstructed breathing that makes it less easier to sleep and more uncomfortable.

Is a disorder not the reason you can't sleep?

  • Perhaps you are stressed through out the day and by time you lay your head down there are billions of thoughts rushing through your mind. Stress can eventually decrease your hormones and stunt hair growth. Bet you didn't think of that???
  • Perhaps you have a chaotic sleep pattern. One night you choose to go to bed at 10pm then the next day its 3am. Developing a well scheduled sleep pattern can reduce the anxiety while you sleep and reduce anxiety.
  • Eating heavy foods full of sugar can cause more blood flow in your brain making it harder for the brain to relax.
  • Trying to sleep on an empty stomach can make it harder to sleep as well. Try to have a set food schedule or snack on something light before bed, like fruits or vegetables.

 

Here are some things to try:

  • Keep a healthy strict diet that won't have you hungry before bed
  • Exercise, but make sure its not within the 3 hours before you are preparing to sleep because that may cause increased body activity
  • Sleep in comfy clothes.
  • Study have show that listening to calming instrumentals before bed relaxes brain activity
  • Push comes to shove...count sheep/ or day dream

 

So if your goal is to grow and keep your hair...get sleep! Simple =)

WHEW!!! I had no idea how versatile eating healthy was. I read an article on that and thought I'd share the different ways people are practicing a healthy diet.

  • Omnivore: eats both plant and animal based foods

  • Flexitarian: inclined to mostly eat vegetarian, but sometimes adds in meat

  • Vegetarian: eats no meat, including fish and shellfish, or any animal byproducts; also known as lacto-ovo vegetarian (eats dairy and eggs)

  • Lacto-vegetarian: a vegetarian who eats dairy products, but no eggs

  • Ovo-vegetarian: a vegetarian who eats eggs, but not dairy products

  • Pescetarian: a vegetarian who eats fish (may also avoid factory farmed fish)

  • Vegan: eats no meat, eggs, or dairy, and no animal derived ingredients, like gelatin, honey or whey, usually also excludes wearing clothes and other uses of animal products, such as leather, wool, angora and cashmere

  • Raw: consists of only unprocessed vegan foods that have not been heated above 115 degrees fahrenheit

  • Macrobiotic: consumes unprocessed vegan foods and sometimes, fish generally avoids refined oils, flours, and sugars

  • Fruitarian: eats only plant foods that can be harvested without  harming the plant

Love this!!

Little Comic relief

Love this!!

Thanks to my lovely friend Taylor who is in Greece living the life right nnow woot woot, I was able to read an article on a natural haired womens opinnion about relzaxed folks. Me personally... I think this is so overratted but apparently some beg to differ.

Here is the article from madamenorie:

Just recently, I had a rather interesting conversation with another natural haired woman. And according to her "if your hair ain't natural, you're full of self-hate." Mind you, this woman was also wearing colored contact lenses andd acrylic nails.


I’m a natural haired woman, and I have a problem with her statement- mostly because it’s rather judgmental and a flawed attempt to psychologically breakdown every relaxed haired black woman. For many little black girls, getting our first relaxer is an indoctrination. It’s just like going to church: You may not know why you’re doing it- you just do it because Mommy said so. At least that’s how it was for me. I got my first relaxer in kindergarten. And the whole experience was never really something I thought about until I hit my teenage years. I certainly didn’t hate myself- at least not more than the next insecure teenage girl. But I’ll tell you what I did hate- doing my hair. It was a constant conundrum because I wanted to look good (as most budding young women do) but sweat, water, wind (actually all the elements) were my biggest adversaries. And for someone who loves working out, going to the beach, fishing, and generally anything that involves water and warm weather, relaxed hair started to work my last nerve.

Remember my inventory from the product junky rehab?

The list is still intact. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

To answer that Its a great thing!

Yea, it would have been cool if i used up some of the products i have to cross them off my list but at the same time i haven't purchased any hair products since december and i have 4 more days until rehab is over!

I am so proud of myself because it shows that junkyism can be calmed.

I am happy to say that my juices and berries is half way done woohoo!!

So does this mean that I am not going to buy anymore products until my list is done?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO. I love trying products, thats what I do, but i wont be purchasing products unless I really want to try it.

Pray for these next 4 days because temptaion is a female dog/devil!

Which is better? Why pay for something that should be FREE? I use to always think that bottled was best.  After reading this article I'm not so sure about that now. To my surprise bottled water is not any better than tap. City tap water is required to be tested more frequently than bottled. So, are we buying into the hype that bottled is better. Some of the bottled water is really tap water anyway.

Who says you have to shampoo first before deep conditioning?

Who says that you can't use coconut oil as a deep conditioner??.....

Upon the release of my crochet braids, I decided to deep condition. Of course I didn't have any type of time to shampoo then wait till morning to wash out my conditioner. Moreover, i HATE going to bed with a we head.

I had a friend recently notify about a technique that leaves your hair just as conditioned as a regular deep conditioner. Raw 100% coconut oil that is.

 

What is coconut oil?

Coconut oil is extracted from the kernel or meat of matured coconut harvested from the coconut palm (Cocos nucifera). Throughout the tropical world it has provided the primary source of fat in the diets of millions of people for generations. It has various applications in food, medicine, and industry. Coconut oil is very heat stable so it makes an excellent cooking and frying oil. It has a smoke point of about 360 °F (180 °C). Because of its stability it is slow to oxidize and thus resistant to rancidity, lasting up to two years due to high saturated fat content. [Source]

Can it be used for hair?

Of course. It has been used for skin and hair needs for a very long time. It is rich in antioxidant nutrients, and its moisturizing properties keeps hair soft and healthy. Many use it for cooking as well as long as it is unrefined.

 

Where can you purchase it?

You can find this lovely agent in most grocery stores or even places like GNC. It is also readily found on-line at herbal stores and vitamin shops.

 

Lets watch this become a deep conditioner:

Hi, I'm Maggi and I'm  excited to be a guest blogger on Napskinkslove. I blog at CluelessCurl. It's about my journey to eco-friendly living and everything in between. I share the ups and downs of going green. Everyone has an opinion as to what "going green" means to them. There's really no right way. It's trying to do something than nothing at all. Going green is not reserved for only one group of people. It's a human thing. I have a segment on my blog where I profile women of color who are eco-friendly. Some are veterans of going green and some are like me just starting out on their journey. Check out my Green Light Features. Through this new venture I hope to create a community where we can share and learn how to be eco-friendly. I don't have all the answers I'm learning as I go. I plan to discuss topics that are worth talking about. Thanks, and have a wonderful day.

It wasn’t until recently I realized that I have been fronting with my confidence. This eureka moment trigger upon reading a young lady’s testimony about her insecurities with her hair,

When I first big chopped I had such a difficult time adjusting and accepting my short kinky hair. Sure I got compliments on how great I looked with the cut but it didn’t really register or matter because it was not what I believed…

I always felt the need to girlyfy my look with this short hair which is typical because most ladies with Twa’s take this approach as well. I used huge earrings and makeup as a crutch to conceal the less than beautiful appearance I held with the cut. Therefore makeup, earrings, skirts and scarf were like my limbs. As long as I felt comfortable with what I had on the TWA didn’t matter to me. I flaunted like it was nobody’s business.

I had the whole world believe that I loved my look…and guess what?

In turn, I grew to love it!!

Pseudo confidence is a device we use to ease ourselves out of situations that we feel uneasy about. Some may call us posers but “fake it till you make it” is an actual reinforcer we use to validate our actions so that others don’t sense fear. This result in us subconsciously buying into whatever it is we are coaxing.

Call me a pretender if you wish but I am only exercising my ability to persuade myself in being comfortable with appearances and other non comforting situations (like public speaking for some).

I think I have fell in love with this technique. Although it may be time consuming the results never cease to amaze me. This time I have chosen to decrease the number of polishes I use to just three. I started with a white base coat from H&M polish and then used 3 wet n wild polishes.

I used:

Blue

Sunside up

Lavender Creme

Ignore the middle finger....

And i water marble again!!
