I go BANANAS for apples and coconut… for my hair!

Let’s feed our body,  from the inside out.

Here’s where I got apple happy on Pretty Fit Way

As I’ve told you in my debut Beauty Tuesday Review, I prefer products that stimulate the senses, including scent!

What’s in my shower today? Stake off the flakes with this Head & Shoulders 2-in-1 Shampoo + Conditioner in Green Apple

Therefore, ridding of itch and irritation doesn’t have to smell like chemicals!

Before I lather up, I apply this to my hair…

Coco Oil

Coconut Oil can “condition my color-treated hair and moisturize my skin” ~ Welcome to My Kitchen

While I say the Pretty Fit Way must practiced from the inside out, coconut oil

makes a great alternative in lieu of more fattening oils ~ WIMK

More Mane Management Tips from root to tip:

  • Massage your head ~ to stimulate scalp for hair growth, as well as to soothe the brain for headache prevention (I swear by these, in particular from my student, a licensed massage therapist)
  • Treat wet hair gently ~ no harsh brushing that would lead it to damage (I showed my shower combs in last week’s Beauty Tuesday segment)
  • DON’T wash hair every single day ~ frequent washing can strip your hair from its natural oils
  • DO wash hair after extended exposure outdoors ~ for allergy prevention (from mold and other muck in the air)
  • Use Dry or Waterless Shampoo when water’s not available ~ to keep hair fresh (like my recommendation in my Beauty Tuesday debut)

Braid for Cascade of Waves Rave

In Health, Home Sweet Home, Public Interest, What's Hot, Yours Truly on 02/24/2014 at 05:15

I had a beautiful hair day on this Sunday fun day ~ well, more like this whole weekend, actually!

First, I started with braiding my hair and pinning it up. Like my new Coach Gabrielle glasses?

Then, when I went to church this morning, I took my hair down… & voila! Bouncy curls is where it’s @ (spritz mane w/holding spray or volumizing mousse, if desired).

Now I know that this isn’t a brand-spankin’ new hair tip, but I just wanted to share 1 way of how a great hair day can lead into the next bombshell hair day =D
