Delicious Smoothie for Better Hair Health

green smoothie health benefits

Hello my lovelies! As I get into the swing of this here blogging thing, I will try to come with new post DAILY instead of weekly! I really love sharing things with you about our hair, and the overall health of us as a whole. I’ve met ALOT of ppl who are clueless when it comes to the direction correlation of diet and hair health. Understand this… What you put into your body will have either a negative or positive impact on your hair.. Think of your body of as a temple, because it is just that. (Getting biblical, I’m not apologetic though) moving forward…. I myself drink a gallon of water per day and have been doing so for about 2 years now.. I sure to you all it is not that hard! Try to do this with lemon if the mere idea of water intake is just “BLAH” to you! LOL! SPICE THAT SHIT UP!! *does corny salsa dance*  I’m the QUEEN of veering off subject.. BACK TO IT SHALL WE! I will not get into the science of it and etc etc.. Because quite frankly, that’s a bit boring, and this is not the tone of this here blog post! Time and place for everything. I drink this here smoothie daily, and I can honestly say for a lack of better wording.. *clears throat* my hair is STRONG AS HELL!! And I want to credit that to this here drink! Give it a try, you’ll see the difference in your nails as well.. Quick to make. I personally LOVE my Nutribullet and magic bullet. Whatever works! Eating better is a bit pricey, I know sad but true.. America is a tad bit FUCKED UP! But that’s another story I will not go into.. LOL! Our bodies need Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Water, Protein, Minerals and Vitamins to be properly replenished on a daily basis. Here is a smoothie you can try that will incorporate all of those essentials:

1 cup of almond milk (Provides Protein, Potassium & Zinc minerals)
1 Organic Banana (Provides Vitamin A, B, C, E & Iron minerals)
1 Handful of Spinach (Provides Fiber, Protein and Cancer-fighting Antioxidants)
1 Handful of Kale (Provides Vitamin A, C, K, & Sulfur for Detoxification)
1 Tablespoon of Flax Seeds or Chia Seeds (Provides Omega-3 Fatty Acids)
1 Organic Pear (Provides Calcium & Fiber)
½ Cup of Ice

DRINK UP!!! ENJOY!!! BE HEALTHY!! GROW HEALTHY HAIR!!! Be it ear length or waist! Remember LOVE YOURSELF and LIFE will be GREAT!!

My Beautiful Hair Struggle

Image

This blog will be about me and the struggle I’ve had with finding what works for me and my 4B hair!  I’ve big chopped my hair a total of 3 times within 7 years.. All due to chemicals. I have very soft hair, and I KNOW chemicals do not work for me, but yet and still I would put them in my damn hair.. What’s the definition of INSANITY?? Umm yeah, she was I, and I was she!! The last BC was in March 2013. I had been going to my stylist for 2 yrs and she suggested I’d texturize my hair and of course trusting her and not what I KNEW about my damn hair, I went for it! This was the first time chemical had touched my hair in ummm 4yrs.. After it was done and rinsed out I KNEW I had made a mistake!! The ends were STRAIGHT and the mass was a very lose wave, not a fucking CURL! I went home that day and CRIED my eyes out, and was anxious as hell to cut the shit out! Needless to say,

ALL 12 inches of my hair fell and broke off, I kind you not in 3 months!! LORD HAVE MERCY! My former stylist tried to save the little bit I had left, but I told her to just cut all that shit out! I mean what was the damn point? LOL!  Anywho, fast forward to 9 months later! My hair has went from a fade to 8 inches retained! I will like to credit that to my protective styling and NO HEAT! When I tell you I KEPT a half wig on my head! I did just that! These days I’m rocking my “poetic justice” jawns.. It’s time for them to come out, I’ve only had them in for 1 month and I have HELLA new growth! Thank you JEEEEEBUUUUSSS!!!! Long story short, I vow to NEVER put another fucking chemical in my head, nor will I do a color… FUCK ALL OF THAT!! For those of you out there struggling to manage or deal with your hair, know this I feel where you are coming from! But I PROMISE you it will get better and the results will be REWARDING!! Happy growing my lovelies!!
