• Every time I attend event like @theprevailingwoman Conf, and share it in my stories, I get dozens of... I should have went. What’s keeping you from going? Are you scared? Too shy (or introverted 😒) ? Money? I’m addressing all of this and how to get the most out of a women’s empowerment event. Link in profile. #sheprevails
  • Supermom vibes in the carpool line! The schools are getting all this @supermomculture Magic this school year! Thank you guys for all the support! Hats are almost sold out! Beanies & bags are gone 🙅🏾‍♀️. They will be restocked later this fall. Link in profile #supermom 📷 @kaynjames
  • Didn’t I just have Harper?! Geez! My baby’s 1st day of PreK 3 (yes, she’s 3!) was today and she basically acts like she runs the school. I think she was happy to have time away from mommy after the long summer. It was nice to have a few hours to myself. Now need to sit down and plan out all this time I have available (3.5 hrs) 😩. Mr swears the girls are gone 8 hrs a day and have so much free time 😒. #firstdayofschool

  • Came back from an amazing weekend in Durham, NC at the @theprevailingwoman conf back to Supermom mode. @letoyaluckett snatched all the edges when she said “If you are not kind to yourself, why would you expect someone else to treat us better than we treat ourselves?” My biggest takeaway is that I need to take care of myself so I can continue to be a supermom.  Gray tees and jean hats available now (bags are sold out)! Link in profile. #supermom #supermomculture
  • Sent my baby off to 4th grade this morning. She decided to wear a top she already had and she picked this hair style. She’s also excited to have a black woman teacher and principal. I was so hype that my little brown girl (only one in her grade) will get to see someone that looks like every day during her education journey. #firstdayofschool #blackgirlmagic #atlbraids #targetstyle
  • I’m having an amazing time @sheprevailsconference by @theprevailingwoman. If you watch my stories you will see them in action 💃🏾. I talked about the balancing act on a panel with @_kayalex_ & @themillennialmamma. The consensus is there is no balance.  I’ll get deeper in to that in a post later because I think we can all relate to that.  Thanks to @suakokobetty I was looking super fly in my kimono and matching shorts. My shoes are like 10 years old 😩. #sheprevails #prevailingwoman
  • The final days of summer! #AD We recently had a family fun day at @townctratcobb. Growing up, my mom and I would go to the mall every Saturday.  It was always an adventure.

  • Did you know I had sisters?  Here are my two older sisters (far left and far right), my niece and my beautiful mom. I don’t think I talk about my sisters enough since people assume I don’t have any. I also have an older brother but he’s 😜. I’m the baby. We definitely don’t agree on a lot of things but when you mess with one of us, you’ll get the wrath from all of us. My #rideordies #nationalsisterday

Spring Cleaning My Hair with Suave Natural Hair Collection

March 25, 2019

This post is sponsored by Mirum, but opinions expressed are my own.

I did a little spring cleaning this weekend. Not at my house but on my head. I was inspired by the new Suave Professionals product line for natural hair that I picked up at CVS, to do something different for spring. As I was trying out the Suave for Natural Hair, I took it a step further and achieved my new spring look.

I’ve been wanting to big chop my hair since I had Harper 3 years ago. I experienced severe postpartum shedding after I had Harper. My hair as never been the same since. My hair was all different lengths. It was a pain to style my natural hair so I would just slick it back into a bun.

When I went natural almost 10 years ago, I transitioned my hair while wearing protective styles. This time I went for it! When I left the house to get the cut I told Mister I may look like him. I didn’t go that far because I wanted to have enough hair for future braids and weaves.

Suave’s Natural Hair line is right on time! When I first went natural, finding good products was expensive. Suave teamed up with natural hair professionals and real women to create this collection. Suave Natural Hair products are infused with natural shea butter and pure coconut oil at an affordable price.

I washed my newly chopped hair using the Suave Professionals Sulfate-Free Cleansing Shampoo. The shampoo left my hair feeling squeaky clean without over drying my hair.

After shampooing my hair, I used the Suave Professionals Moisturizing Curl Conditioner. Let me just say, Suave put their foot in this one. One of the best conditioners I’ve used in a while. Once the conditioner touched my hair it instantly felt moisturized. The slip through my curls was amazing! I was able to detangle my hair quickly while the conditioner was still in. Once I rinsed it out, I was able to go straight in with a small comb.

Not pictured, but I followed up with the hydrating Nourish & Strengthen Leave in Conditioner. Great for adding even more moisture and protecting my hair.

This cut has brought my curls back to life and am in the process of learning them again. My hair is normally soft and fine so finding something to define my curls can be a challenge. I used the Suave Professionals to twist my hair. When I un-twisted my hair, the curl was defined and had shine.

Since doing the big chop, I have been feeling free. I got too comfortable with wearing protective styles, that I didn’t put much effort into styling my natural hair. Suave’s Natural Hair collection of great, affordable products has motivated me to embrace my natural hair again.

I’m sure I will wear a protective style again soon, but until then, I can confidently wear my natural hair.
