My Winter Hair Care Plan

This post is sponsored by Mirum.  Thoughts and opinions are my own.

Winter is coming and maybe here already for some areas inthe US.  The cold weather can wreak havoc on your hair and scalp.  I wear protective styles 75% of the time, but I still do my best to maintain my hair underneath.  In the winter scalp tends to become dry, flaky and itchy.  In my adult years I learned that my dry scalp and flakes were result of dandruff, not because I didn’t use enough oil.  I wanted to share with you how I plan to take care of my hair and scalp with the help of Dove’s DermaCare line available at BJ’s.

What’s In My Bag, Dr. Miracle’s Haul {Video}

This post is sponsored by Dr. Miracle’s.  Thoughts and opinions are my own.

I’m still on a high from the Dr. Miracle’s Feelin Myself Weekend during the ATL stop for OTRII just a couple of weeks ago.   Dr. Miracle’s pulled out all the stops for 3 lucky winners and their guests for an action-packed Bey & Jay weekend.  During that weekend I had the opportunity to host an amazing conversation over a VIP dinner by Chef Shaw Osbey.  We talked about our healthy hair journeys as well as self-care.  I wanted to continue the healthy hair conversation online and share my favorite Dr. Miracle’s products as well as new additions to their collection.  Check out what’s in my bag.

Detangling 4C Hair with Q-Redew

It has taken over two years and I’m just now getting comfortable with wash day routine for Harper.  I have Peyton’s hair down because hers is similar to mine. Harper’s thick hair has thrown me for a loop!  I quickly learned no two heads of hair are alike.  Harper’s hair is totally different from Peyton’s hair.  Peyton’s hair is soft, curly and easy to detangle.  Harper’s hair is thick, kinky and long.  The products that I use for Peyton do not work the same for Harper’s little head (but big hair).  I’m happy to share with you guys that I’ve cut the detangling time in half thanks to my new Q-Redew Handheld Hair Steamer. Watch the video below to see how the Q-Redew works on Harper’s hair and coupon code.

Natural Hair Pillowcases

I’m so excited to share this product that will help all my naturalista minis and mommies.  To this day I still get emails asking how to grow out bald spots on babies and toddlers. Bald spots are usually due to babies rubbing out their hair because they spend a lot of time on their back.  Just like us women, the texture of our hair against cotton is not a good mix.  It can cause bald spots and breakage.  A friend told me before I had Peyton that I needed to make sure she kept silk or satin behind her head.  Where do I find that?  I stole a few of Mister’s silk pocket squares and used that for Peyton when she was a baby.  It wasn’t cute but it helped.  When I had Harper, our friends from MM Blankies sent us one of their fabulous satin blankets that she could lay on and be wrapped in.  I’m happy to share with you MM Blankies newest genius product, designer satin pillowcases.   Continue Reading
