The hair care sample kit has been given an upgrade. We've increased the size of the container on the shampoo and conditioners and added a hair butter sample to the mix.
Although there's beauty in your blackness, your skin is sensitive and needs protection from the sun just like everyone else.

It will bring comfort and beauty back to your skin.

Self care. It's all about showing some love for You. I was listening to Iyanla Van Sant being interviewed by Henrietta Cole. She began to speak about Self Care, showing love for yourself.
She's not the first person to speak about Self Care. Magazine covers are full of headlines on the subject. A lot of you have learned, especially over the past two years, how important it is to put yourself in the mix of being taken care of. Not by other people but by You. Caring for yourself is important to your overall health, in particular your mental help.
When you shampoo your hair, give yourself a facial, relax in the tub, all of these things are part of caring for You and strengthening your mental health.
A lot of you talk about taking showers. Yet, to take a bath is one of those Pleasures that you can give to yourself, and feel so wonderfully well when you emerge from the tub.
Bathing is a form of relaxation. It enables you to take 15-20 minutes and lock yourself away from all distractions.
Stepping from a warm bath, wrapping yourself in a luxurious towel, and then beginning the process of applying scented oils all over your body. There's nothing like this experience of self-love.
In an article I was reading, Mary J Blige was talking about how she had to begin to speak to herself in order to deem herself Worthy. None of us know the depth or the dynamics of what took place in her relationship. What she shared with us was that learning how to love herself took Priority.
As women we give, give, give to everyone around us. In doing so we have a tendency to ignore our own needs. It's time for that to stop.
Mary J. Blige spoke about looking in the mirror and telling herself how beautiful she is. Well to some it might seem a bit far-fetched, embarrassing, even over the top. For others it could be what saves your sanity and your life.
When you look in the mirror and you see your Fine Brown Frame, it's looking back at you, agreeing with whatever you say. If you cannot say to yourself, when speaking to your reflection, how much you love what you see, how can you expect someone else to give you any kind of love.
Loving yourself comes with self-respect. When you let go of that level of respect that you have for yourself, you invite those who want to disrespect you, to feel as if they can step right into your space and treat you in any kind of way.
As of this writing it's February. February in any year is known as the month of love. It’s also Black History Month. When we take into consideration that self care is part of self-love, Black History Month is also part of self-love.
They both have the foundation of caring for oneself and taking pride in Who We Are.
Don’t allow yourself to go-all-in on Self Care and Self Love during February and then forget the rest of the year. There’s no set time when you begin and end the love for yourself. It should always be part of who you are everyday of the year.
The next time you pass a mirror, tell yourself how gorgeous you are. Blow yourself a kiss. When you step into your bathroom, consider the tub over the shower. The peace of mind gained, you'll thank yourself for it.
That’s it for this week. As always …
