I was bored so I spent a little time checking out study papers about healthy hair growth.  Little did I know that I would stumble on a document that details a 5 Step Scalp Detox Program and its effect on hair growth.


Spoiler alert-- the 5 Step ScalpDetox program was shown to improve the scalp and increase hair growth.  Knowing that this a proven method made me pay closer attention as I reviewed each of the individual steps.

Prior to quarantine, I enjoyed checking out local coffee shops in the area in search of the perfect chai latte.  After placing an order, I was often asked what type of milk I preferred.  As long as it wasn't cow's milk, I pretty much didn't care which of the remaining options they use. 


 It's all the same, right?


While plant-based milk is often a better option than dairy, they aren't all created equal.  


I learned today that one milk, in particular, supports our beauty goals and I'd like to tell you all about it.

 I have a few lip scrubs that I barely use.  Something about rubbing microbeads across my lips with my fingers doesn't really appeal to me.  I felt like I could never master the technique. Should I scrub really hard? Should I lightly exfoliate? 


Once mask requirements became a thing, I pretty much gave up on exfoliating my lips altogether.  


But now I'm inspired to create soft, supple lips again thanks to an Instagram beauty reveal by Nikki Hall.

 A couple years ago, I was introduced to one of my favorite hair and skin oils--squalane.  The moment squalane entered into my life, everything changed.  This oil is phenomenal because of its lightweight texture and its ability to feel silky and non-greasy.  


Once squalane came into my life, I thought nothing else could be better.  But perhaps I was wrong.

If you're a long-term reader of this blog, you know that I'm a massive fan of technology in the beauty industry.  I'm particularly interested in the progress and development of beauty tools.  Especially since, when it comes to hair, most styling tools inadvertently result in damage. 

Manufacturers understand that creating a healthier version of a flat iron, curling iron, or hairdryer, is a key to success so they're constantly trying to outdo themselves.  Enter a Japanese beauty supplier by the name of Tescom.  They are the originators of healthier heat styling.  And now they've outdone themselves by developing a line of styling tools that could potentially create healthier hair.  


Here's the kicker, they have a blow dryer that claims to "promote hair growth" and "protect the hair" via the power of collagen.

I've been thinking a lot about how I barely drink apple cider vinegar anymore.  I keep telling myself how I need to get back to drinking it again but haven't followed through.  Thankfully, I just so happen to come across some much-needed inspiration that will help me get back into an ACV routine.  

 I've veered away from drinking ACV because it sort of felts like a chore.  Vinegar is not exactly easy to drink.  But thanks to Temi Otedola, I'm ready to try again.   

Temi is a Nigerian actress and influencer with over a million followers on Instagram.  Her feed is filled with professionally shot images and promotions for her acting roles.  But her recent IG stories revealed a behind the scenes glimpse of her favorite apple cider vinegar drink tonic.

Last week, I experienced one of the worst wash days of my life.  The whole ordeal was mostly my fault.  I initiated my wash day routine as normal. After shampooing, I stepped out of the shower to start the deep conditioning process.  Once my hair was saturated with conditioner, I placed a plastic bag and proceeded to do a few chores.  


Time flew by and I realized that I didn't have time to finish up the rest of my wash day routine so I made the worst decision of my entire life....I went to bed.  The next morning, I thought I'd awaken, rinse away the conditioner, then easily pick up where I left off.  


Instead, I found myself having to deal with tangled, unhappy hair.  It was a disaster.  I thought saturating my hair with ample amounts of conditioner would shield me from this horrible outcome but I was sadly mistaken.  Days later, I was reminded that putting a ton of product on your hair isn't the key to proper conditioning.  In order to achieve smooth, well-conditioned hair, I had to do exactly the opposite.

This year, I didn't create a ton of resolutions.   Instead, I decided to simply to observe my behaviors in real-time to determine what areas I needed to make a change.


My main focus this year is maintaining a high level of vibration as often as possible.  This means carrying around positive energy that helps me to attract more of what I desire.  


Last week I experienced a breakthrough.  I uncovered a limiting habit that was holding me back.  On the surface, this habit doesn't seem all that bad.  We probably do this without even a second thought.  If you have a tendency to say to yourself "I need to do xyz," I invite you to alter this habit slightly, and here's why...
