2017 has been about relationships

2017 has been about relationships

What a wonderful 2017. It’s not really like the year disappears. I mean honestly?! It’s just life flowing into the next. I do believe the New Year’s gives a lot of people focus, hope and a means to start planning the future.  Just remember that everything you’ve learned and been through for every year past is this person you’ve become and that’s just amazing! It means you are becoming and evolving. You are everything and more. I also recognize and feel compassion towards others that may have had to go through some things that they hated in 2017 and I do hope that 2018 gives them (and this may even be you) a sense of renewal, freedom, self expression and strength. To me this is my every day. Each and every day is an opportunity to wake up, to rise up and to start fresh. This past 2017 has been an amazing year. I have never felt a stronger sense of community. A sense of women coming together. Women empowering one another and supporting one another. I saw the relationships that were built. The hearts that opened up. The love shared. The energy has been phenomenal. Man, I want to cry, just reflecting on how amazing each and every woman that I’ve been so lucky to have met this year. To have hugged, laughed and shared with. I truly love each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart. I ‘m not perfect and I’m going to keep working on myself. I hope to remain humble enough to always accept my short comings so that I...

Not all henna is created equally

Not all henna is created equally

Not all henna powders are created equally. There are blends, henna hair colors, hair quality and even fake henna. It honestly makes it near impossible to choose what might work best for you. We do believe there will be some trial and error in the whole process but it shouldn’t be so complicated. Henna Blends This is found often times in your local Indian or Middle Eastern store. Sometimes even online. A henna blend would be where the henna is in the ingredients listed but there may be several other herbs in this mix. Blends are not ideal for coloring because they dilute the main ingredient that produce the color which is the henna powder. A lot of blends are also sitting on the shelves for more then a year or so at a time typically. So they aren’t typically very fresh. Freshness is important similarly to you cooking with fresh herbs. You also get better results. Henna Hair Colors The most confusing and misleading product in the henna marketplace. Henna is being sold as colors when in fact henna is not a range of colors. Henna is a plant that produces only a reddish tinted dye/stain. A plant naturally does not make two colors. There are no types of hennas. Henna is a single plant of it’s kind. Basically a henna hair color box is a blend of many coloring herbs including henna to create boxed hair dye that sometimes contains even PPD (chemical), compound henna and metallic salts. Henna hair colors also give a false sense of the color results that you’ll receive from using a henna...
