Today I'm posting about last Sunday -- about spirit and the Word and worship. About joy and gratitude. That's a bit of a change: So far the majority of my blog posts have been about hair. One of the reasons? Besides the obvious reason that my hair demands almost daily attention, it's because I'm loving… Continue reading Last Sunday! (Gratitude, Sermon Notes, and LifeHack Bible Antifragility Excerpt)
Alright, family, I'm on a mission. A hair mission. I am going to find a way to get a de-bulked wash and go on my natural, dense, cottony hair. I know it's possible: I achieved it before, which is the reason I was able to create the post "Hair Gain #2: My Wash and Go… Continue reading [Series] Mission Possible: Endeavoring to De-bulk My Natural Hair Wash and Go
So far I've tried 3 out of the 5 different products from my recent Camille Rose Naturals haul when nearly every product from the site was $10. I've tried the Moroccan Pear Conditioning Custard, the Coconut Water Leave-in, and the Coconut Water Penetrating Hair Treatment. Below are my impressions. 🙂 To inform the utility of… Continue reading Initial Impressions from My Recent Camille Rose Naturals Haul
In order to be a support, I try to always purchase my hair products from black-owned beauty supply stores or directly from the product owner/creator. Today I found myself in a non-black-owned beauty supply store. This is because yesterday Google showed me a Twitter post (or was it a Facebook or Instagram post?) announcing that… Continue reading Toxicity in Black Women’s Hair Products, BSS Hair Event, and Latest Hair Product Purchases
I rarely go on Facebook anymore, and I was feeling pretty pleased with myself in terms of how disciplined I felt I was being about it. However, I didn't realize that I had basically replaced the time sink of Facebook with a forum. I gain so much from the forum and the wonderful people there.… Continue reading [Soul] Trading Social Media for Social Meetups
To yield my best wash and go results, I typically shingle my dense, fine, 4a, natural hair at the sink. I recently, however, decided to try a wash and go in the shower. Why try to fix what isn't broke, you ask? I know, I know. Well, a fellow natural mentioned that by using the… Continue reading Did It Work?

Product trialing update: Yesterday I again used the RoyalHerbalOrganics no poo and conditioner on my scalp and strands. I posted my initial impression of the RoyalHerbalOrganics hair product line a few days ago in this post: https://blossomingfitnatural.com/2018/04/25/brand-review-royalherbalorganics-fermented-rice-water-products-etsy-com/. In my first post about these products, I mentioned that I had not attempted to detangle with either the… Continue reading Update: RoyalHerbalOrganics and NaturesEgo Fermented Rice Water Products
I'm no longer "concerned" about hair typing the way I used to be. I do wonder about the construction of these hair typing systems, though! So please let me apologize in advance: I'm a math nerd, and definitions and precision and categories and names really matter in math. This post therefore might be a little… Continue reading The L.O.I.S. Hair Typing System: I Think I Like It, But Is It Already Clearer Than I’m Seeing?
I Just Donated Lots of Products from My 4-Year-Old Hair Products Stash! Win-Win! I found a women's shelter that is requesting gently used black hair products! What?!?? This is awesome. It makes so much sense to pass on sanitary, gently used products to those who need them instead of throwing them away, wasted in the… Continue reading Hair Products Donation and Camille Rose Naturals $10 Apiece Haul
