Day 1: Pick Up a Jump Rope

Remember how fun it was in elementary school, jumping rope during recess? Though it might be tough to find willing double-dutch participants, going solo can still be a blast. It’s also a major toning exercise and calorie-burner, if you take the right steps. To engage all your muscles, including the smaller stabilizer ones, fitness guru Tracy Anderson says footwork is important: “Jump on one foot, jump side to side, jump with both feet, jump ...

It could easily be a reoccurring problem that you will get tired of dealing with.

Many people think that because they have natural hair, there is possibly NO WAY that they could go wrong. BUT WAIT! That couldn't be more FALSE. I find that a lot of natural people do not comb their hair at LEAST every other day, they do not moisturize their hair, and they don't keep their hair trimmed.

 

The hot weather is approaching slowly but surely and keeping your hair MOISTURIZED is essential. It's like the LIFE of your hair. When you continuou...

What I did for a year was wore sew-ins (I took them out and got them redone every month and a half). That helped with the growth of my hair and gave me a chance to give my hair a break from the heat. But, now a days, my hair doesn't seem to like being braided up for a sew-in because my scalp itchs like CRAZY. So, for the month of MARCH I personally decided to challenge myself to a NO HEAT ...
