My “Natural Hair Bible” has arrived!

Today’s guest post comes from Natural Becomes Her 
 Hello again, gorgeous ladies!
Today I received a wonderful surprise in the mail!!
I was extremely ecstatic when I opened the package to this:
Thank God I’m Natural: The Ultimate Guide to Caring for and 
Maintaining Natural Hair by Chris-Tia Donaldson

As soon as I was able to get the package open I was all into the book, lol. No wonder Essence magazine is calling it “Your Natural Hair Bible,” the book is LOADED with useful information on natural hair care and maintenance. The author Chris-Tia Donaldson, whom I had the pleasure of interviewing a couple of weeks ago here, breaks down every stage of the natural hair from the very beginning and walks you through the many questions most of us had during the initial transition!

Thank God I’m Natural has an array of beautiful, low maintenance natural hair styling ideas and tips!
The key to growing healthy hair is understand what hair is and how it functions. Chris-Tia Donaldson breaks down the anatomy of the hair follicle in a way that is easy for the reader to comprehend the basic chemistry of hair.
There are also great recipes for hair shampoos, conditioners, leave-ins, gels, styling pomades and more!
If you’re not sure what chemicals you should watch out for on the labels of your favorite products, don’t worry! Thank God I’m Natural lists the names and abbreviated names of various chemicals so that you can make wise decisions on the products you put in your hair.
There is so much more to this “Natural Hair Bible,” such as a natural hair salon directory, an extensive natural hair terms glossary, question and answer section to some of the most common natural hair questions and more. Having just started chapter 5, this is definitely a book that every naturalista should have on her shelf. Even if you aren’t natural, this book can enlighten and educate every black woman on the basics of how to maintain and grow healthy, black hair.
Have you gotten your copy of Thank God I’m Natural: The Ultimate Guide to Caring for and Maintaining Natural Hair?

Weight Loss Tip of the Week- Opt For the Breakfast of Champions

We’ve all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day but the power comes from what that breakfast consists of. Grabbing a donut and sugar-filled latte every morning doesn’t award you any gold stars. If you want to make your breakfast count go for protein-filled foods like eggs, greek yogurt, string cheese, or an apple with peanut butter  which will keep you feeling full longer so you can skip the mid-meal snacking. If you’re like me and crave sugar with your coffee go with natural sugars like oatmeal with cinnamon or cocoa powder.

So ladies, what’s your healthy breakfast look like?
