Black History Month: Preserving Our Heritage

Black History Month: Preserving Our Heritage

Jayden is at the age where he is becoming increasingly aware of the differences amongst his peers. He has started noticing and inquiring about his friends with apricot and peach skin tones. He, like my husband when he was his age thought that Mommy and Baby were apricot as well. Cue the history and scienceContinue Reading

Natural Hair / Motions Straight Finish System #Curly2Straight

Natural Hair / Motions Straight Finish System #Curly2Straight

This is my hair on a normal basis. It’s either in this style which is a twist out, or twists, or an afro puff held in place by a hair tie. It’s how I handle things best. So when I was asked to use the Motions Straight Finish method on my hair and report backContinue Reading

Shea Moisture Products, Now At Walmart!

Shea Moisture Products, Now At Walmart!

When it comes to hair care products, I am pretty brand loyal and maybe downright obsessed. I’ll try a new product here and there, but I will always default to my favorites. In the 7 years of my natural hair journey, I have found that less is more. Less products, less ingredients, less in price.Continue Reading

New Year, New Hair With Garnier Olia

New Year, New Hair With Garnier Olia

Usually towards the end of the year, I get antsy feelings of wanting to do something with myself. So in true Sheena fashion, I started the new year by dying my hair. Nothing drastic, but more of a refresh. I have grown to love my magenta locs. I consider them to be a signature lookContinue Reading

NaBloPoMo?

NaBloPoMo?

Silly me signed up for NaBloPoMo. Think I can complete the challenge? Greg already shut me down and told me that I wouldn’t, lol. I mean with Tiny Human due this month, I doubt it, but I’m going to try. I am so out of touch with just writing my thoughts. I feel like eachContinue Reading

Differently Clothing: Conscious & Fly

During Christmas break, I went into a beauty supply/wig store with intentions of buying a clarifying shampoo (with minimal ingredients). Not sure what brand I was looking for, I assumed it would be in the shampoo aisle. In this store, everything was arranged according to brand. It was a huge store. As I walked downContinue Reading

Art Every Day: Easy Yarn Hair Wraps

I’ve been wanting to dye a few of my locs pink or purple, but in order to do so, I’d have to bleach them. I don’t want to bleach my hair because it’s not the healthiest or the most natural choice. I’d be a hypocrite if I said, “Oh, my hair is natural and unprocessed.”,Continue Reading

Little Man With A ‘Tude

He colored on his face…again. Jayden has been doing a very good job at convincing us that he doesn’t need any siblings. His lil’ male diva (in a non feminine way) attitude has taken over this house. He’s very particular about his wants. He wants cereal, with milk, in a bowl, in that order. Sandwich,Continue Reading

Six Flags And Dread(loc)ks

A few days ago, I wrote a post about an incredible deal Walmart had going on for Six Flags this summer. In return for that post, I received four tickets to Six Flags. Exciting right? Especially since we are in need of a fun family getaway. Well… It has come to my attention that thereContinue Reading

Using Sofn’Free n’Pretty GroHealthy On My Boy

Before having Jayden, we decided that we would not give him haircuts. We’d let his hair grow out and if he decided he wanted it cut when he got older, we’d allow it. His hair growth is pretty much at a standstill. I’d like to be able to style it in braids and twists, butContinue Reading
