DIY Homemade Hair Mask
Yesterday I made my 3rd homemade hair mask, but this time I used a different recipe in result of one of the main ingredients not being available.
As many of you know, I have worn my hair natural for the past three years, which takes a lot of patience and care. I used to co-wash between 3-5x's a week to maintain the fresh look of my curls, however, I've changed my regimen to co-washing 1-2x's a week at max., and shampoo 1-2x's a month. The texture of my hair is what would be known as a combination of 3b - 4a. Yes, I have 3 different kinds of curl patterns going on, and believe it or not, this is not uncommon.
I wanted to share this hair mask for women who seek to add length, shine, and strength to their natural hair. Also very beneficial for women who straighten their hair as well.
Here are the ingredients I used: 1 Whole Banana2 Medium Eggs1 TBSP Coconut Oil1/3 Cup Coconut Milk1/2 TBSP Olive Oil

I have never felt this way before; not even when Ancient Language played all my heart scores. Not when I found myself running a restaurant and working 12 hour days . . .
Not even when I closed my eyes and walked away.
There is nothing as sweet as the taste of your lips, or the way that you speak that this soul, you uplift. Your words are always bright and your energy, like the molecules vibrantly spinning around in the air, giving us all so much love and light.
I constantly tell you that you're such a blessed soul, and the woman that will have you is the luckiest I know.
Hiding my eyes with both hands; when my heart sinks deep and I think of those days. . How can such a man exist, you know, the one we believe o…
I recently had an experience where I was judged based on someone else’s preference. The situation went like this, “Do you think this person is pretty?” I didn’t agree with that persons preference but did not shame them for believing or feeling the way they did about the other persons beauty. Moments later, I was being attacked for being, “untrustworthy,” and a ton of other things that simply aren’t who I am or what I stand for in my life. This situation, even though it occurred months ago, prompted me to share this piece with you all today. Preference: A greater liking for one alternative over another or others. Judgement: The ability to make considered decisions or come to sensible conclusions; a misfortune or calamity view as a divine punishment.
In no way, shape or form is it okay to put others down based on your own preferences. We are all entitled to like what we like, and dislike what we wish to dislike. There is a difference between preference and judgement. What occurred during …
