The Benefits of Coconut Oil

Composition of Coconut Oil:

Coconut oil consists of more than ninety percent of saturated fats (Don’t panic! First read to the last word. Your opinion may change), with traces of few unsaturated fatty acids, such as monounsaturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids. Virgin Coconut Oil is no different from this. Let us have a bit detailed study of this.
  • The Saturated Fatty Acids: Most of them are Medium Chain Triglycerides, which are supposed to assimilate well. Lauric Acid is the chief contributor, with more than forty percent of the share, followed by Capric Acid, Caprylic Acid, Myristic Acid and Palmitic.
  • The Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids: Linoleic Acid.
  • The Monounsaturated Fatty Acids: Oleic Acid.
  • The Poly-phenols: Gallic Acid, which is phenolic acid. These poly-phenols are supposed to be responsible for the fragrance and the taste of Coconut Oil and Virgin Coconut Oil is rich in these poly-phenols.
  • Certain derivatives of fatty acid like Betaines, Ethanolamide, Ethoxylates, Fatty Esters, Fatty Polysorbates, Monoglycerides and Polyol Esters.
  • Fatty Chlorides, Fatty Alcohol Sulphate and Fatty Alcohol Ether Sulphate, all of which are derivatives of Fatty Alcohols.
  • Vitamin-E and Vitamin K and minerals such as Iron.

Hair Care:

Coconut oil is one of the best natural nutrition for hair. It helps in healthy growth of hair providing them a shiny complexion. Regular massage of the head with coconut oil ensures that your scalp is free of dandruff, lice, and lice eggs, even if your scalp is dry. Coconut oil is extensively used in the Indian sub-continent for hair care. Most of the people in these countries apply coconut oil on their hair daily after bath. It is an excellent conditioner and helps in the re-growth of damaged hair. It also provides the essential proteins required for nourishing damaged hair. It is therefore used as hair care oil and used in manufacturing various conditioners, and dandruff relief creams. Coconut oil is normally applied topically for hair care.

Bacon Cheddar Pasta

1 cup uncooked penne pasta
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon butter
4-1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour

Wordless Wednesday

It's Wordless Wednesday and I'm back at it! Hopefully you enjoy my photo of the day :) Enjoy!

Beginning your Transition Phase

What is Transitioning?

When you stop putting chemical straighteners in your hair with the goal of wearing your natural texture, this process is called transitioning. According to Merriam-Webster, a transition is a passage from one state, stage, subject, or place to another; or, a movement, development, evolution from one form, stage, or style to another. 

In this context, when your hair is transitioning, it is moving from its current form under the chemical straightener and evolving into its natural state. In many ways, this transition will also be physical, mental and even spiritual. Letting go of old habits is never easy. But strength, patience and sometimes even a better sense of humor can be gained in the process.

Why Transition?

Transitioning is not always the fastest way to achieve a head full of natural textured hair, but it will get you to your goal. Believe me, I’ve done it three times! There are several reasons why you may decide to transition. Transitioning from chemical straighteners to wearing your natural hair texture aids in the overall health of your hair and scalp. Like others, after I transitioned I noticed my scalp was less dry and itchy, and I experienced way less hair breakage and shedding.

Where to Begin?

The most important key to a smooth transition is patience. On average, hair grows one-half an inch a month or six inches a year, and that’s barring any preexisting health issues. So you can see, transitioning is definitely not a sprint, but a marathon.

Once your hair starts to grow, you have a few options on what you can do to reach your goal of a head full of natural textured hair.  As your new growth comes in, you can cut a half an inch off your chemically straightened ends each month. Or, you can hold on to your chemically straightened ends for as long as they are healthy, and once your natural texture grows out to your desired length, you can then cut off the chemically straightened ends.

With either choice you make, you have to be extremely careful with the demarcation point between the two textures. Harsh pulling, combing or using tight accessories in this area will cause breakage. So to prevent damaging your hair, be gentle and stay away from high heat styling appliances.

How to Maintain

As you transition, you will have to maintain two textures of hair—your new growth and your chemically straightened ends. While getting to know your new growth, you will find that what you used on your straight ends may not necessarily work on your natural texture.

In the beginning stages of transitioning, it wont be very difficult for you to blend in your new growth with your straight ends by using styling products, low-heat blow drying, etc., but as your new growth gets longer you will have to start wearing transition styles. Transition styles, are hairstyles worn during your transition, that don’t cause stress on your natural hair texture thereby, allowing it to grow healthy. Some examples are straw curls, two-strand twists, twist/braid-outs and extension braids. Tips for these styles can be found This will be part of the fun. The hairstyle options are limitless!

The last and final time I decided to wear my natural hair texture, I followed these guidelines. I won’t say that there were no bumps along the way, but my transitioning journey was a whole lot easier and I was able to stick with it—maintaining my natural hair texture for more than 10 years. Yes, a decade strong! I wish you the best on your journey as well!

Damn Deployments LOL!

Let me just tell you this deployment sucks. I have my good and bad days. It's normal to have them. Not to mention the mood swings OMG lol! I can tell you the Family Readiness Center is the place to be. They have loads of informative information they can give you about deployments, how to cope with it, and they also have therapist that work off the books to just listen to you and give you advice. I've been so busy with them it's hilarious. I get my moments when hubby and I argue and I just wanna say fawk it and be done but I can't do that. I'm a married woman and marriage is forever. I've been dealing with the deployment, plus the blogging, vlogging, research, trying to get back in school, cleaning house daily, and trying to keep my sister sane. It's a lot to handle huh? Oh and not to mention have time to talk to hubby when he's available! *le sigh* I got this though. I can do this. I can make it through this deployment even though it has just begun. If you are a military spouse and are going through deployment I recommend you buy this book called "Surviving Deployment A guide for military families" by Karen M. Pavlicin it's really a good book. I lucked up and found it at a thrift store. Ok so about thrift stores. I'm a big thrifter LOL! Hubby told me I need to calm down even though I go thrifting with $10 a day and get a tun of stuff. I need to start vlogging what I get so you all can see what types of things you can actually get from there! I absolutely love it. It's like trying to find a needle in a hay stack :) Anywho, enough of me rambling...... I hope all is well with everyone, send me some comments on what you'd like to see on my blog. I blog about everything natural hair, military, cooking, and more. So if you have any suggestions please feel free to let me know. Take care and God Bless!

Banana Jam

-6 ripe bananas
-2 cups sugar
-1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
-1 tablespoon grated lemon zest

Slice the bananas round. In a large bowl, stir together the sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest until sugar is dissolved. Fold in the banana slices until their all evenly coated. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or aluminum foil to let the bananas marinate at room temperature for at least an hour.

Put the bananas and marinade in a saucepan. Bring it to a boil, stirring frequently so you do not burn the sugar. Reduce the heat to low and let simmer uncovered for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. The jam should be thick enough to mold with a spoon if that helps clarify when it's done. Immediately ladle the jam into an airtight container and refrigerate.

2 tsp cocoa powder
2 cups baking flour
2 cups granulated sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup water
1 stick butter
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs

1/3 cup milk
6 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup cocoa powder
3-4 cups powdered sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, baking soda and cinnamon then mix together. Set the bowl aside, in a medium saucepan melt the butter and mix in the water bringing the mixture to a boil. (optional) Sift the cocoa powder into the pan and whisk together. Pour the mixture into the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Mix in the buttermilk, vanilla and eggs. Lightly butter a 15x10 inch baking pan or whatever pan you desire and coat it with cocoa powder. Pour the cake batter into the pan and bake in a preheated oven for approximately 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

While the cake is baking, take a small saucepan and heat the butter and milk, bringing it to a gentle boil. (optional)Sift the cocoa powder into the boiling mixture and whisk together. Remove it from the heat and stir in the powdered sugar and the vanilla extract, whisking until the icing is smooth and has a shiny appearance. You may have to add some additional powdered sugar until the consistency is correct. You don't want it too thin, but not too thick; it needs to be spreadable but not watery. Keep the icing warm until the cake is finished and pour it on while still hot. Let the cake cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10-15 minutes, cut and serve warm. Enjoy!

Know your Carrier Oils

Another type of oil for hair is called carrier oils. The oils are called carrier oils because they carry the essential oil onto the skin. Carrier oils are also known as base oil or vegetable oil they are usually derived from seeds or nuts. Carrier oils are best used as natural and unadulterated as possible. Cold pressing and maceration are the two main methods of producing carrier oils. Carrier oils are very important in hair care; they are great moisturizers, strengtheners and very nourishing for hair.

List of Carrier Oils and Their Benefits To Hair

Jojoba Oil – The debate is whether jojoba is the king of the carrier oils. Many scalp related problems are caused by a hardened build-up of sebum that clogs the hair follicles and may cause some types of scaling. If this hardened build-up is not removed, it can eventually obstruct the hair follicle’s ability to function properly, jojoba rapidly penetrates down to the scalp and hair shaft, and readily loosens and dissolves this hardened build-up. The scalp and hair follicles are left clean and free to continue their normal function. Jojoba is great for all hair types and has an ability to inhibit excess activity of the sebaceous glands making it the perfect choice for people with oily scalps that still need conditioning. Likewise it can be used for dry hair as it helps to moisturize your hair properly.

Olive Oil – Only olive oil that is labelled “extra virgin” guarantees that the oil has been cold pressed from freshly harvested olives and does not contain chemicals. Extra virgin olive oil that is green in color is of higher quality than golden-yellow oil. Olive oil helps in preventing as well as curing hair loss as it prevents the production of the hormone DTH which causes the hair follicle shaft to decrease. Regular application of olive oil to hair prevents the production of DTH hormones on the scalp, thus getting rid of the problem of hair loss. For relaxed/permed hair ladies excessive chemical use can cause hair damage, olive oil contains antioxidants that promotes a healthy hair and scalp. Olive oil strengthens and smooths hair cuticles.

Coconut Oil - Coconut oil consists of more than ninety percent of saturated fats Vitamin-E and Vitamin K and minerals such as Iron. Coconut oil is considered one of the best natural nutrition for hair and is in contention with olive and jojoba oils as the king of the carrier oils. It is an excellent conditioner and helps in the re-growth of damaged hair. It also provides the essential proteins required for nourishing damaged hair and it softens the hair and conditions the scalp.

Castor Oil – is a vegetable oil obtained from the castor bean. Castor oil is a colorless to very pale yellow liquid with mild or no odor or taste. It is rich in ricinoleic acid and can be used to treat skin conditions such as fungal infections. It nourishes hair and prevents the scalp from drying by retaining moisture. Castor oil added to hair care products helps to seal moisture, softens, and visibly thickens hair. Castor oil can also be used by itself on the hair to seal in moisture.

Vitamin E Oil - Proper circulation leads to thriving hair follicles which leads to hair growth. Vitamin E contains valuable antioxidants that help to keep the immune system up and improves circulation to all parts of the body, including the scalp. When added to homemade products, Vitamin E extends their shelf life. This oil rejuvenates and offers protection for the scalp and skin.

Avocado Oil- is extracted from the king of the ‘hair’ fruits avocado. It is full of vitamins that your hair needs like vitamins A, E, D and potassium. If you want a super deep conditioner treatment without having to buy a commercial preparation, you can add avocado oil to the other carrier oils and you will definitely feel and see the difference.

The Caramel Treatment – A Natural Hair Softener

The caramel treatment is a product in the E’tae product line. Boasting an all natural line up of ingredients from honey, bananas to olive oil, this product delivers in its ability to seriously soften and hydrate the driest and roughest hair textures. It helps people who relax their hair to ‘stretch’ their relaxer for longer peri...ods and helps people with natural hair by softening its texture for easier detangling and manageability.

The results of the caramel treatment are not permanent; they last for up to 4 weeks so should be reapplied monthly for continued benefits. Many report ‘loosening’ of hair texture as well as less shrinkage after the treatment but this is likely due to the added weight of the product as well as the increased moisture levels in the hair. For this reason, the caramel treatment is excellent for helping to straightening the natural hair as it takes less heat to get smoother results as well as better moisture retention.

No doubt the product is excellent but due to its perishable nature (no preservatives are used), the price tag for monthly treatments can become quite unappealing. Most of the ingredients in the product can be found in many average kitchens so making your own caramel treatment seems a more attractive approach for those who wish to use it on a regular basis.

By understanding the purpose of each ingredient, you can adjust the recipe every time you make it depending on your hair’s needs.

Honey – An excellent humectant good for moisture
Olive Oil – For lubrication and helps with moisture retention
Bananas – Good for moisture and some protein benefits as well
Molasses (Treacle) – Another excellent humectant with some protein benefits
Water – This is the best natural moisturizer and is used to thin the mixture
Apple Cider Vinegar – For the shine it imparts to the hair
Cornstarch – For thickening purposes
Wheat germ oil – For added strength and lubrication

Suffering from Brittle Hair?!

Brittle hair can result from external factors, such as exposure to harsh chemicals, or from internal causes, such as an illness. These are the primary external factors for those lackluster locks:

•Harsh shampoo
•Shampooing too often
•Hair dye
•Hair perms
•Chlorine in swimming pools and hot tubs
•Overuse of the blow dryer or curling iron
•Too much exposure to sun and wind
•High mineral content in local water supplies
Hot oil treatments can treat dry brittle hair the use a cream based, deep conditioner 2 times a week will also combat dry hair.

Rinse with cool water as your final rinse to close the cuticle and prevent further damage. Avoid shampoos that are clear in color. These shampoos are referred to as plain shampoos. Plain shampoos contain little to no moisturizer instead use a good moisturizing shampoo that is sulfate free. Deep condition at least 2 times a week. Apply the conditioner to clean, damp hair. Put a shower cap on and sit under the blow dryer. This will open up the cuticle and condition your hair better. Use daily conditioners and even better, use a leave-in conditioner as well.
Purchase a boars hair brushes distribute oils better throughout the hair, down the hair shaft. Cut back on blow drying or use the blow dryer on the cool setting. Keep use of heating products to a minimum if possible. And always use a styling product that specifically protect hair during heat process.

Is your Hair ready for Spring & Summer?

UVA - Ultraviolet A
This is the sun's strong radiation-filled light rays. Ultraviolet A rays have the longest wavelength and they can penetrate into the hair's deepest inner layer, the cortex. The UVA rays disturb the hair cortex's fiber-like cells that gives the hair its strength and elasticity. It can also damage the color pigments that create natural hair color. The UVA rays can also burn the hair cuticle which is the outer hair layer.

The cuticle contains a web of tiny overlapping scales. When the scales are damaged they can not lay flat and will look lifeless, brittle and dry.

UVA rays can also burn and damage unprotected scalp. It is even possible to burn the part of your hair where scalp is unprotected. UVA rays can damage the skin on the scalp in many ways and activate free radicals which accelerates aging. A severe sunburn on the scalp has even been known to cause some cases of hair loss.

UVB - Ultraviolet B

These are invisible rays that also can penetrate deep into the hair's cortex or center damaging the hair fibers. It can also damage the hair cuticle. UVB rays can easily dry out the hair and cause natural and chemical colors to fade.

UVC - Ultraviolet C

These rays are the most damaging but do not reach us because of the ozone layer which currently protects us.

All Natural Aloe Vera Juice Pre-Poo

Ingredients you will need:  
1.Castor oil (use amount suitable for length and thickness of your hair)
2.Aloe vera juice (use amount suitable for length and thickness of your hair)
3.bowl and spoon
4.plastic cap/bag

Ingredients you will need:
In a bowl mix
-½ cup of aloe vera juice or whole leaf aloe vera
-1-2 tablespoons of your favorite oil (wheat germ, olive, safflower, walnut etc)

In a separate Bowl melt
-Food grade coconut oil (1/4 cup)
-Sit the bottle or jar in hot water- do not put in microwave or on the stove!

Remember, everyone's hair has different needs. You may need more or less of this mixture. Or, your hair may not like this at all. None of these will irrevocably change your hair. Thus, you just need to wash out the mixture if your hair doesn't like it.

1. Using your fingers, separate your hair into 4- 8 sections. If your hair is caked with hard product, rinse your hair first. Gently handle the first section. First, smooth the hair in a downward direction. You are just trying to make sure that all the hair is going in one direction. You don't need to completely detangle the hair at this point.

2. Dip your hair in the bowl of aloe vera and oil or cup your hands in the mixture and transfer it to the section onto your hair. Work it through. Get the aloe vera/oil mix into your hair from root to tip. Make sure it is moist throughout the sectioned hair. If your hair is long enough, twist it and wrap it around like a bantu knot. If it is not, try to twist it and move it out the way. Repeat until you have done this to each section.

3. You should have a head full of aloe vera mixed with oil twisted sections. Go back to the first twist you did. Undo it, pour the liquid coconut oil in your hand and work through the section. Re-twist it and repeat on whole head. Place a plastic shower cap on your head for 15-60 minutes. Your moisturizing pre-poo is complete!

Treating Dandruff Naturally

To clear up dandruff you need to counter the cause of the problem: your scalp's acidic pH level. You need to use a Apple Cider Vinegar to restore your scalp's natural alkaline pH level, prepare a cup of apple cider vinegar and pour it on your head while on bath and rinse it with water.

This is a good and easy way to overcome scalp.

First, you use flaxseed oil, then you follow with apple cider vinegar which is great at fighting yeast and bacteria.

I love the addition of the sugar to the oil because it acts as a natural exfoliator for dry flakes, but some women prefer to leave the sugar out.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour, 5 minutesIngredients:

• Flaxseed oil (olive oil works if you don't have flaxseed oil)
• Finely granulated white sugar or brown suger
• Apple cider vinegar (preferred) or white wine vinegar
• Hydrogen peroxide


Mix a tablespoon or two of flaxseed oil and a teaspoon of sugar into a bowl. If you don't have liquid flaxseed oil, you can puncture 3-5 flaxseed oil capsules.

Apply the mixture to the scalp and massage in.

Wrap hair up in a hot wet towel and let the flaxseed oils soak in for about 20 minutes. You can also put hair up in a shower cap. Of course if you are short on time, you can skip this 20-minute let-the-oils-soak-in step.

While you're letting the flaxseed work on your dry scalp, mix up 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar, 2 tbsp hydrogen peroxid and 2 cups lukewarm water. For best results, put it in a spray bottle.

Get in the shower and rinse out the flaxseed oil from the scalp using a small amount of shampoo. Rinse thoroughly.

Turn off the water and separating your hair into sections, spray the scalp thoroughly with the vinegar/hydrogen peroxide/water mixture. Note: AVOID GETTING MIXTURE IN EYES.

Massage the vinegar into the scalp.

Wrap hair again in a hot wet towel or in a shower cap (less messy). Let the vinegar mixture soak into your scalp for 20 minutes to an hour. (Yes, you can skip the marinating if you are short on time, but do let it sit on your scalp for at least a minute).

Rinse thoroughly.
