Behind The Brand: RadicallyCurly Salon

Beauty, Behind The Brand

In Vegas, there are plenty of pools and people to watch. Not so plentiful: natural hair salons. After chopping my hair in February of last year, I was searching for someone to do my hair and support me in this transition. Luckily my friend Maddie (a fellow curly girl) referred me to the RadicallyCurly Salon in Henderson, NV. I started going and wound up loving the service and friendly nature of the staff and salon owner, Danielle Green. Today I got a chance to interview her about the philosophy behind being radically curly!

NaturVersary: How To Get from Here to Hair!!

Beauty, Strand-tastic!

Do you know what today is? It’s my natur-versary!!

*cue that TonyToniTone! song*

A year ago today, I said good-bye to relaxers and hello curly freedom! I sheared my strands so I could start over and adopt a healthier lifestyle and outlook.  When you do something for a long time, it is difficult to remember why you started doing it in the first place.After having straight hair for so long, I forgot how much I loved my curls. I started off as a natural, so I thought it would be easy to start over because I had been natural before:

DeepCon: SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Deep Treament Masque Review

Beauty, Dee Vs.

It’s incredibly easy to get caught up in all the awesomeness that is the natural hair movement. More than ever before, women of multiple colors are embracing their glorious God-given curls and purchasing products by the pound. New lines are cropping up to satisfy the need for slippage and the laying of edges. I’m also a card-carrying member of the movement and P.J. (product junkie for those not in the know) so I have quite a few jars and bottles in my linen closet: SheaMoistureDevaCurlAG HairLivingProof, –Phyto Hair Care,-Alterna… the list never ends.

5 Tips on How I Beat Lazy At Its Own Game

Uncategorized

I was lying in bed one morning and contemplating going to the gym. Almost instantly, reasons to stay tucked in, eat pancakes, and read flooded my mind. Why? Because I’m lazy and I know it.

It’s very easy to have good intentions:

– You follow all your favorite Instagram fitness gurus and watch the videos, while eating your third ice cream bar.

-You pin all types of healthy snack recipes and smoothies, even though your blender hasn’t seen the light of day since you made a milkshake two years ago.

-You retweet pro athletes you follow with the hashtag #nodaysoff when honestly it’s been a few days and there might be a few more in the future.
