Food for Thought

On my Youtube Channel I was asked this question:
I have a sincere question that I hope you wont take the wrong way. Why the concern for the chemicals and unnatural ingredients in your hair products but not the same concern for what you put into your body? Ive seen vids where you say you take non FDA approved diet pills instead of going natural with the food you eat to lose weight. Why not be concerned in both areas especially since what goes inside is a little more important than what we put on our hair? Thanks
So I answered:
lol no offense taken, and you are right for asking. I take the same precaution with my hair as i do with my body. i have researched each ingredient in the pills like i have with the products that go in my hair. i am a healthy eater and i also take vitamins. I put pure things in my hair like I do with myself. I do not put as much "harmful" food in me and the same with my hair. I treat mineral oil/fried foods the same way if you catch my drift. thanks for ur ? imma blog about this

Tried that.

Thee Best Comb Ever!!!

This is thee best comb ever! it is smooth and strong.
It detangles very well and is heat resistant. You can use this comb to do a blow out. You can blow a warm dryer on it while doing your blow out and it won’t bend. This is a great comb to detangled your hair when it is parted in small seconds. You would use this comb after using your wide tooth comb. I absolutely love this comb!

Whipped Shea Butter 101: Results

This is my shea butter. It's called:
Mint to Be

Check Out the How To Video:

Whipped Shea Butter 101

I have been collecting ingredients and waiting to make my own whipped shea butter and this weekend I made my first batch!!! I'm all about passing it on so here's how:

16 oz Raw Unrefined Shea Butter (the darker the yellow the better)
2 tbsp Avocado oil
2 tbsp Grapeseed Oil
2 tbsp Coconut Oil
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tbsp Safflower Oil
2 tbsp Sweet Almond Oil
2 tbsp Aloe Vera Gel
1 tbsp Liquid Lanolin
1 tsp Tea Tree Oil
1 tsp Jojoba Oil
1 tsp Vitamin E Oil
Vanilla, Peppermint, Lavender
Ylang Ylang, Sandlewood, 
Rosemary Essential Oils
(italicized: carrier oils/ bold: preservative/ underlined: very moisturizing)

  1. Melt down your shea butter. (DO NOT melt it down all the way or cause it to boil!)
  2. Add your Jojoba & Vitamin E Oil
  3. Whip the mix for 5-7 minutes
  4. Place the mix in the fridge for 5-10 min
  5. Take the mix out and whip it for 5-7 minutes
  6. Add your carrier oils and whip the mix for 5-10 min
  7. Place mix in the fridge for 5-10 min
  8. Add your essential oils. (*** NOTE: if you have a large amount of shea butter and carrier oils, you will have to place over 100 drops of your essential oils. If you want your shea to smell strong and have good nutrients you have to add this amount.
  9. Whip you mixture for 15 minutes
          DONE! This is just how I did it and it is open for your modification. :)

After the first step.

You can see it getting this after the fridge and all the whipping.
