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 lay here and think to myself, "Why do I keep asking for permission to love you?"
Why do I feel the need to ask you for your permission to say that "I like you", "I want to be a part of you again", I just want you to understand: I want you.
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'm at a library I've never been to before.
The women that work here aren't even experienced with computers so I'm going around offering help to those they simply give the direct answer, "I don't know," to.
I can't help but to think of all the time I've spent not doing what I've wanted for the sake of a being that is emotionally unavailable and stuck in their conditioning and patterns.
Just last week I asked myself, "Why do I keep going back?"
The answer, I found, was based on something that I needed to free myself from entirely. Stability.
One of the worst illusions we as human beings love to attach ourselves to. A sense of stability.
So these days I am spending a lot of time reprogramming my beliefs and conditioning - as well as investing in my own business instead of going out and helping others achieve their dreams (while putting mine on the back burner).
