Donna’s Do

Kings and Queens pays tribute to the dynamic diva Donna Summers.  Remembering her radiant stage presence and funky fros. Donna Summer was the Queen of Disco in the 1970s a dynamic combo of American soul and European based music. Summer’s music started in Munich, Germany ,produced by Hair and Porgy & Bess productions. In Germany, she created the famous “Love to Love You Baby” which brought her worldwide fame. Did you know, Donna Summer was the first female (not just African American but first female) artist to have back-to-back multi-platinum double albums and the first female artist to incorporate synthesizers as well as the first artist to create an extended play song?

Mother’s Mane – 5 Steps To Stronger Hair

Your hair is not always the world’s point of focus, but as a woman and a mother if my hair is not managed my life somehow feels out of control. As an African American woman I often focus on the look and not the condition. I know I am not the only one. Hello? Well after speaking with a couple of stylist and paying attention to the way they treat my hair, I have five simple hair enhancements that I’d like to share.

  1. Water is important, what you put in the body does show on the outside. So along with drinking lots of water I also take Omega 3 (fresh water fish oils) wish actually helps with my dry scalp.
  2. Straightening my hair is always damaging, but deep conditioning helps. I sit with conditioner in my hair under the dryer rinse and then use a leave in.
  3. No heat is how you beat the breakage. I mean the less the better. Blow drying with high temps is a no-no. If you want to use a dryer to dry, I suggest investing in the hairdryers you can sit under. They are not easy to find, but I got mine on clearance for under $40. I sit in my room, read a book and dry my hair.
  4. Cover-up. There are pillow cases made of silk that can help with the bed head syndrome but wrapping your hair at night with a non-cotton based scarf can also be extremely helpful.
  5. When in doubt – Ask!!! Talk to people and stylist that don’t mind sharing. Give a compliment and then get to the questions. How do you… and how do I?

Yellow Light Means There Is A Stop Coming!

There usually becomes a crisis point before a lot of us are willing to change. For example, sometimes it takes a heart attack for a person to start eating right. But you don’t have to wait for your crisis point. You can just bite the bullet and say, “That’s it. I’m done with this.”
