I'm breaking out

Over the last year my skin has went from bump free to bumpyville. I don't know whats going on. I'm think it might have something to do product dripping on my face, but every since that episode I have been doing great with making sure that my hair is dry enough to style and go. Also, I try to wash my face in the morning(Clean and Clear-I had some left that I need to use it up) and at night(Ambi daily cleanser)...but nothing is working. I drink plenty of water and I eat pretty well...ugh I'm frustrated now. I even tried this natural exfoliating method last Thursday...

So far nothing has changed. I will try this method one more time in two weeks. If it doesn't work I will try something else.

Protective Style Addition

My sister is currently transitioning and discovered crochet braids on youtube. This style reminds me a lot a style I wore back in middle school. Basically I believe that its the same style but different type of weave used.

Anyways, right now I don't plain on using this as a style because of the summer heat, but as soon as the fall hits trust I will try.

I want to spice it up and try something like this

New Burst of Courage

I am the young age of 23, but boi I've been through so much. Recently, I have been worrying a great deal about my future. I wonder what will come of it. I wonder will I be successful. I wonder how will I get out of my credit card debt. How will I be able to?

I don't know the answer to any of these questions. Everyday I pray for peace. I pray that I will be ok. Most of the time I don't think that I will, but I believe that my savior will make a way. I know that I am truly with out a doubt trying as hard as I can. Ppl can try to tell me that I shouldn't have ever used the credit cards, but I know that I had to do what I had to do.

Everyday, I realize that I am becoming a more beautiful woman inside and out. I'm going through these trials for a reason(that is unknown to me). I will continue trying and I won't give up. I know that help is coming(one day).

A Prosperous First Year Being Natural

Some of you know that I have been waiting for this day and it finally year. I can't believe how far my hair has come. I'm proud that I can inspire others to join the natural journey with me. My goal is not to trash down what others choose to do with their hair, but to encourage everyone to take care of their hair period. Our hair can be beautiful with all textures.

My Top Reasons I've added ACV as a staple

Anyone who knows me knows I love love AVC. We had our first encounter back last yesterday when I started to read about clarifying hair. Some say that ACV does not clarify your hair, but I would disagree. Like any product, it may not work for everyone but my hair loves it. I mix ACV 3:1 with shampoo(or condish) in a spray bottle. Every two weeks I add my mixture to wet hair in the shower when I am washing my hair.

As I've mentioned several times, I have a million and one allergies. One being severe ezcema. I've been praying that I will grow out of my allergies, but that hasn't happened yet. I'm 23 and I've been using creams for ezcema since I was at least 10 and I was sick and tired of it. One day several years ago I looked down at my hands and noticed that they were seriously loosing pigment. I was like awww nawww I am not trying to bleach my skin. Ever since then I only used the cream when I have a horrible break out...well until recently I came across an interesting alternative using ACV. I began to use this method about three times a day and within a week my skin really began to clear up.

On top of my allergies, I suffer from sinus issues, acid-related stomach aches, minor arthristis and the list continues. Yea, I'm falling apart. Anyway, I'm so tired of taking all my daily meds for all this crap. I read up on EarthClinic for my sinus and arthristis problems. I began to drink 3oz of ACV a day and I feel a million times better. Amazingly, I haven't had any pains or aches for weeks(besides headaches and I'm trying to figure that out now) and I'm so happy.

Colored My Hair!

Yup, u've read it right. July 16 will mark my 1st year being natural. I've been in a very stressful situation lately, so I thought it would be great to do something adventurous like color my hair.

As suggested to me, I tired a semi-permanent Cherrywood color by Clairol Pro. I was hoping to get a very noticeable color change, but instead I can only see .5% color change when my hair is at an angle that makes the sun beam on my hair. I'm highly dissapointed. :(

I planned to get my hair colored professionally in a couple of weeks.
