Beginner’s Lessons From The Gym

I like to learn from my surroundings and everything that happens. It’s a thing I learnt from my mom. I remember we used to watch Mexican Soap Operas or Nigerian movies and she would later be explaining how a specific scene reminded her about a certain scripture in the bible.

I rarely admit it and even more rarely try to hide it. I may drop the ball on some things often, but I always get the backlash from my mind immediately after.…

Hello lovelies!

We are finally on the last masks and rinses post before we take a break from the series. This week we are going to look at the rice water rinse.

Although the rice water rinse has been used in Japan and China for centuries, it has gained popularity in the natural hair community only recently (the past two years).…
