• My mom’s favorite church song is Grace & Mercy. When @pintsizefaith they sent me these shirts, they didn’t know.  I believe this was a message from my mom that his Grace & Mercy will bring me through. Thank you @pintsizefaith  for all the inspiring messages.
  • The time is always right to do what is right - MLK. Words I try to live by! If you visit Memphis, go by the Lorraine Motel. So many emotions just knowing this is where he took his last steps.
  • 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.

  • *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?

How I Maintain a Healthy Scalp with Protective Styles

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dove DermaCare Scalp Dryness & Itch Relief Shampoo and Conditioner.

I love me some protective hairstyles. I switch my hairstyles up from weaves to braids to crochet hair. Protective styles are low-maintenance, protect your natural hair and keep you looking good on the go. Protective styles may be low-maintenance, but you still have to take care of your hair and scalp underneath. I wanted to share with you how I maintain a healthy scalp with a few simple tips and the help of Dove DermaCare Scalp Dryness & Itch Relief Shampoo and Conditioner.

Before we get into it, I want to introduce you to the latest innovation from Dove Hair, the Dove DermaCare Scalp Series. Dove DermaCare Scalp Series features three variants that combine the perfect blend of powerful, skin-focused technology with the nourishment of Dove, resulting in no visible flakes with regular use.

  1. Make sure your hair isn’t too tight. If your stylist braids too tight, ask them to do it looser. Pulling the hair can cause unnecessary damage to your scalp.
  2. Wash your extensions or braids regularly. It can be a hassle to wash extensions but this is the best way to maintain a healthy scalp. Using Dove DermaCare Scalp Dryness & Itch Relief Shampoo and Conditioner, I pay special attention to my leave-out are and where I experience itchiness and dryness. Dove DermaCare Scalp series nourishes dry, irritated and itchy scalp.

  1. Don’t scratch your scalp. As a long time extension wearer, I’ve learned my lesson of scratching my scalp. Not only does it bring up dandruff, but it also can break skin. Dove DermaCare Scalp Dryness & Itch Relief Shampoo and Conditioner are formulated with coconut and shea butter to hydrate dry scalp and relieve irritation.
  2. Do not wear a protective style more than 6-8 weeks! Your hair needs to be nourished, so taking down braids and extensions are a must after wearing for several weeks.

  1. Nourish your scalp with Dove DermaCare Scalp Dryness & Itch Relief Shampoo and Conditioner in between styles. Using Dove DermaCare Scalp collection, it helps to Nourishes dry itchy scalp, relieve scalp irritation, and hydrates hair. Dove DermaCare Scalp series also will have your hair flake free with regular use. Winter is coming and we know how those flakes like to make an appearance.

After my first use of Dove DermaCare Scalp Dryness & Itch Relief Shampoo and Conditioner, my hair was flake free and was no longer itchy. Without adding my usual styling products, my hair felt smooth and hydrated. Itchy scalp is my biggest complaint with wearing protective styles. Using Dove DermaCare Scalp Dryness & Itch Relief Shampoo and Conditioner helped to solve that problem immediately. No more beating myself in the head patting my weave.

Dove DermaCare Scalp is a great addition to your current beauty routine and gives you beautiful and smooth, flake-free hair*. Thanks to Dove DermaCare Scalp you will get flake free hair*, nourishment with zero compromise. The Dove DermaCare Scalp Collection (Pure Daily Care, Invigorating Mint, and Dryness & Itch Relief) are available at Target, Walmart and your local drugstore for $4.99 each.

*No visible flakes with regular use
