Why Blog

 My main reason for starting this blog is because I enjoy helping anyone who asks for advice and tips, but often times I get a lot of the same questions repeated.  How did you go natural? How long did you transition? What products do you use? etc.  This way I have all my information in one spot and can just send anyone the link to the post that addresses their question.

For my fitness and health endeavors, I'll probably post those as well, just because I'm more interested in that nowadays than my hair lol.  Healthy eating is slowly becoming my new favorite hobby, and I'd like to document my progress in that as well.

Who knows, I might not keep this up, but I'm excited about it for the moment lol.  Hopefully it keeps me accountable in these areas of my life.


  1. Hi Victoria,
    I read your post in Black Girl With Long Hair and I really enjoyed your post. I too am natural. I went natural in 09 and recently big chopped for the second time. I guess what I related to the most was how you described your crown or middle section of your hair. I have that same problem where it's always drier, more susceptible to breakage but it's also the thickest part of my hair. Most weird thing is that it is always pretty tender in that area. I've been wanting to buy burdock root oil, I read about it online and am anxious to try the butter your using.
    I used to blog and I thought about blogging about my hair and diet and exercise so when I saw your smoothie recipe I was like this young lady and I have a lot in common. Though you seem to be a lot younger than I am, I want to be the first to tell you "Go Girl!" I do a smoothie with kale, strawberries, blueberries, bananas, wheat germ, sometimes I'll add cream of rice organic cereal and mangos and grapes all mixed with almond milk. I will be following your blog and I wish you the best. Your hair is gorgeous and we need more young ladies out here inspiring other young ladies to be themselves and not conform to what society seems to be in acceptance of.
    Sorry so long God bless!
