If you are starting to feel more health conscious as you get older, you will love the idea of natural deodorant. There are many harmful chemicals that exist in traditional deodorants. I started my natural deodorant journey 5 years ago. It's been an interesting one. You sometimes have to hunt for one that will work for you. ANDDD when they do- sometimes a few months later they won't. Why? Did you know to improve your overall body odour and hygiene- you have to DETOX your armpits first?!?!?

Here are 5 ways to detox your armpits using natural deodorant

Summer Skin Care

Let’s talk skin! Summer skin is my favourite because it’s always hydrated with very little effort. Don’t judge me! With a busy toddler- I have skipped a few steps in my skincare regimen time to time. BUT! I’m happy for products that don’t fail me.

Let me start this off by saying. It’s NOT easy to achieve a good skin care combo that works for EVERYONE. This works for me right now as of July 2, 2020. I’ve met with a few dermatologist who classified me with normal skin. But I’d say I have normal skin with an oily T-zone. If you totally identify with what I’m saying.

Best Way to Dry your 4C TWA Natural Hair

If you’re anything like me, you recently went natural and are rocking your cute lil’ TWA, or “Teeny Weeny Afro”. My hair type is 4C and for me that means it’s DRY and shrinks like nobody's business! I always have to make sure it's moisturized and I try to keep it as stretched as possible. This can be tough because my hair has a mind of its own, but overtime I’ve found ways to keep it in that state without too much effort. I’m a self proclaimed “lazy natural” and I just don’t have the energy or care to be worried about my hair all the time. I make it a point to keep my 4c hair in a moisturized, stretched state with the least amount of effort possible!


For this to happen, one of the most important days is wash day because of the drying process. When I dry my hair I keep these four steps in mind: Conditioning Comb Out, Damp Drying, Damp Moisturizing, and Stretch Styling.
