    Hello June!!! How have you ladies been sine we last met? Today I will be discussing my relationships with people in general; especially in light of the fact that I am all natural. I've been natural for a few years now. And trust me, it has been a liberating experience. I can remember when I went natural, a lot of people kept asking me if I was sure of what I was about to do...or doing. For a moment then, I almost turned around and quit on the natural game. About the same time, I remember Alisha Keys declared to the whole world that she was embracing her natural beauty and going to live her life henceforth makeup free. It was just an Inspiring moment for me. I mean ALISHA took a really bold step there. I thought to myself, this is wonderful. I mean, it was just too amazing. Therefore I decided to follow in her footsteps {not 100% though}. But majorly, makeup free. Standing my ground and not allowing myself to be tempted or influenced by the crazy waves on social media.....I found peace. Honestly, I found this deep peace with myself. It was just amazing. Embracing my natural beauty has simply been "it" for me. Sooner than later, my friends began to notice my change in style and appearance. Initially a lot of the girls complained. But as the days turned into months, I can boldly say I sparked something in them. [img]https://myafrohub.com/PF.Base/file/attachment/2017/06/bfef7005760cbb15eae277e3b702db28_view.jpg[/img] The most amazing part about this was the admiration I got from guys. I was like "No way!". That year had to be the year I made the most genuine male friends, because for some reason they could trust me and be friends with me. It felt like the natural look filtered out a lot of people from my life. Discovering that I had become surrounded by true and real friends just made me so happy. Like my life was literally much easier. And of course, I went out on way more dates than I ever thought I would. I had so many people asking me out, wanting to have me as their partner, all because of my natural look. Not that this is the main focus here. But as a lady, there is no way you wouldn't be excited about being attractive to the most reasonable and mature kind of guys. Over the years I have matured in rocking my natural look. Once in a while I tend to draw my eyebrows, or apply colored lip gloss, or maybe even eyeliner. But I never apply anything to the skin on my face. My facial skin has grown so accustomed to this lifestyle that it even reacts to the use of chemical substances on it. I see now that my face is healthier; I am healthier; and of course, my relationships are healthier. I would love to see you embrace your natural look too. Not just your Natural African Hair, but yourself as a whole - learning to be confident in your own natural skin. Know that you are beautiful. Artificial attachments are never really a true definition of beauty. They may enhance it, but they don't define it.

    I don’t think I have to stress so much introducing coconut oil to you. We all have used coconut oil before. It is one essential oil that every naturalist must own. One major issues when purchasing not only oils but hair products generally, is identifying fake products from the original products. I have fallen victim of bad oil several times because I did not know how to identify good oils from bad ones. Today I would be giving the basic clues on how to identify good coconut oil. Since it is one of the most available and essential oils we all use. Firstly, if the coconut oil is branded the words “extra virgin oil” must be written on it. Why? When an oil is extra virgin it simply means that the oil was manufactured my cold press method. Which is the best way to manufacture any oil. It allows the oil to retain all the minerals and vitamins that were originally in the seed or fruit it was derived from. Next, if the oil is something you can taste, ensure you do. Pure coconut oil must have a pure coconut taste. It is as simple as that. If it has an irritating taste or you cannot even taste the coconut then it is not a good oil. The coconut oil must also have the same smell a coconut will have. This shows that it was cold pressed and derived from the coconut. Lastly, your coconut oil must have a clean clear look. This means it must not have tiny particles moving inside the oil. Or even a blurry look. If the oil is yellowish in color it must be clear. If it is transparent, it must be clear. Clear enough for you to see the other side of the container from it. Once the oil does not have that clear look, it means it has been adulterated or is just not a good oil. I hope I have been able to help you identify good coconut oil from bad ones. Next time you are shopping for coconut oil be sure to look out for all that I have mentioned.

    Happy new year everyone! This is my first blog post of the year. Let's do this [img]https://myafrohub.com/PF.Base/file/attachment/2017/12/14aa3fcd6cba4d475bb5919e12f0dc04_view.jpg[/img] Palm kernel oil has been in my home for as long as I can remember. As a little girl, my paternal grandmother would send it to us to use as body cream. She sent the one that had stick like herbs in it and I was cool with them until I started watching nollywood, and I wanted nothing to do with a "babalawo’s cream". Although now I know it’s a very great oil and I’m going to be sharing some of its wonders. Palm kernel oil has a texture and feel similar to coconut oil. It contains lauric acid 48%, oleic acid 15% and linoleic acid 2.3%. It has been used for many years in West Africa as a comestic. It’s called "mmanu aki" in Igbo and "adin dudu" in Yoruba. Apart from its great skin and hair benefits, it is traditionally used as medicine for ailments like convulsion. My grandma originally sent it to us when my mom complained about my skin and my sister’s. - BENEFITS FOR SKIN Palm kernel oil helps make the skin soft and smooth. Palm kernel oil has anti-aging properties. It is loaded with antioxidants which prevents the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also provides protection against harmful UV rays, other toxins, and harsh weather conditions. It has a longer shelf life than most oils making it preferable because you don’t have to worry about a rancid oil destroying your skin. It cures dry and itchy skin and makes the skin look naturally radiant. It can be used to cure cracked heels and dry cuticles. It restores the elasticity of the skin. - BENEFITS FOR HAIR It helps thicken the hair, giving it added volume. Similar to coconut oil, it helps moisturise the hair and locks in moisture (water). It makes the hair softer. It treats dandruff. It helps stimulate hair growth. If you have fallen in love with this awesome oil, you can get it on the myAfroHub marketplace.
