  • I thank God for my family.  Out here breaking generational curses and sharing black love. There was a time when I thought being a mom was negative because I watched so many in my family, including my mom, struggle raising kids on their own. Motherhood is a struggle but the best and loving kind of struggle.

  • Somebody’s been drinking their water and minding their business 😆. My first blog post of 2020 is up! This is the year I say YES to myself more! I’m excited about it.  I also forgot I got Fendi bag on Black Friday at a consignment store because I tucked it away before Mr started asking questions! Pretty much brand new for a small fraction of the price 🙌🏾. My dress/jacket is also on sale at @recessionistasclose! Details are on the blog. Link in profile. 📷 @kaynjames
  • Y’all remember this? I saw that meme about what you call @diddy and you can tell someone’s age. Well I call him Puff. Happy Friday!  Fun fact: Peyton got some moves.  She can really dance. I don’t own the rights to this music. #puffdaddy
  • “I used to live downtown, 129th St” 🎶  My old heads know about this. That’s exactly what i look like.  Bonus points of you can tell me who or what song it’s from.  This has been my uniform (outside of my @supermomculture hoodie) over the holiday break +/- the hat. Trying to get my style mojo back for 2020! Shedding a few lbs will definitely get me inspired. Links to what I’m wearing in profile. #momstyle
  • *This pic is from Feb 19’* Get knocked down 9 times, get up 10 - Card B. I’m looking more like my before pic but I know it’s possible because I’ve done it before.  Last year was devastating for me and I ate and drank all my emotions.  I’m back at it again.  Click the link in my bio to see what helped me achieve these results.
  • Even though my voice is gone (I’m sure Mr & the girls are happy about that 😒), I’m excited for my first speaking engagement of the year for @bcollectivemag #belevated conference this month! I’ll be giving all the tea that has helped me to secure the brands. I’m so honored to be included in the line up!
  • I was holding on by a thread most of 2019. It may continue into 2020 but I’m holding on.  I thank God for keeping me. 
@supermomculture beanie is unavailable but new 🔥 drop coming in 2020!
  • Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas 🎄. Mr is missing but he’s still around 😂. To my defense, we took these before Thanksgiving and I planned to have another shoot with him but I was tired. Anywho... what y’all get?
  • Going to @chuckecheese as a kid was a big deal. #AD.  My girls feel the same way so I was happy to take them to the newly renovated @chuckecheese in Kennesaw, GA.  When we pulled up, I was like Okay Chuck E.! From the warm new look, fresh food options, tons of games made this a great evening for the kids, while mama got to chill.  If you’re in the Atlanta area go check out the Kennesaw location, you’ll be impressed with the updates. Check it out over the holiday break. Learn more about the new look on the blog.

  • Still over here Christmas shopping.  Looks like I’ll be spending the next two nights wrapping gifts in my #clarenceclaus paper from @greentopgifts. Who else is still shopping 🙋🏾‍♀️? Outfit details are on the blog.  Link in profile. 📷 @kaynjames

My Winter Hair Care Plan

December 13, 2018

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.

I planned to wear my natural hair out this winter.  But when the cold air hit my scalp, I was like naw.  Before maybe I moved on to my next style, I had to get my hair and scalp in check first.

I used DoveDerma Care to get my dandruff and flaky scalp in check.   Dandruff is a condition of the scalp that causes flakes of the skin to appear.  Dandruff isn’t cute.  It will show on the surface of your hair or on your clothes.  No amount of regular washing or scalp oil is going to fix this problem.  Dove DermaCare Anti Dandruff 2-in-1Shampoo and Conditioner is formulated with Pyrithione Zinc and Nutrium Care to get the pH balance in check,  and make your scalp flake free.

The Dove DermaCare line doesn’t smell “clinical” and isn’t harsh on my natural hair.  It leaves my hair soft and I’m able to detangle just as easy as I can with my other shampoo and conditioner.

The before photo is my scalp before I took my braids out from my last protective style.  My scalp was dry and had major flakes.  In my after photo, you can see how refreshed my scalp looks after using Dove DermaCare.

After I get my scalp in check, I head to my stylist for my next protective style.  I’m still recovering from extreme hair loss from having Harper, I decided for a full sew-in, go give these edges a rest. Having a protective style not only saves me time and looks great, but it also allows me to give my natural hair a rest from manipulation.  I’ll be wearing this style for the next 4-6 weeks.  If my scalp starts to feel itchy, I’ll be using my Dove DermaCare and wash my hair.

If you experiencing dry scalp and flakes, don’t let it interfere with your plans during the holidays.  Save money and embarrassing flakes this season, and head to your nearest BJ’s Club and pick up the Dove DermaCare 2 in 1 Anti-dandruffshampoo and conditioner.
