I'm getting sick and tired of my Natural Hair!!!

Good Morning Ladies,

This natural hair is working my last nerves. I can't seem to get it to style right.
I am so about to get a damn relaxer in my head again. I try to style it and it still looks like crap. Nothing I've used so far really makes it curl. I've tried to braid it up and wear it out. NOT. I've tried to twist it up and wear it out. NOT. Big twists, Lil Twists, All kind of damn twists and still my hair comes out looking like a bushy mess.

Afros do not appeal to me for me at all so I don't see too many other options. 
I mean should I just keep getting it flat ironed? Isn't that too much heat? 

I had to get up at 4am this morning to just to wet my hair put in some leave in conditioner, some hair souffle and braid it up, only to put on a wig cap and wear a wig. What's the damn point of being natural if I can't seem to get a style decent looking enough to wear it out?


I'm not trying to have a greasy head looking like Michael Jackson back in the day with a jheri curl. I had a jheri curl before and I don't want that anymore.

I want curls but I don't want my hair to have to be wet to be curly. I want my hair to look like this....


Cheating Saves Marriages - Do you Agree?

All I can say is if you like, it, I love it but its not for me. I'm sure it works for some people and more power to em. I think marriages aren't perfect and in some marriages people cheat. If they can work through it and get back together and maintain their marriage, that's great. Other people cannot get over infidelity and the relationship is over.

What say you?

Just 10 | Rule #1: Cut Out Soda

Period. Soda is full of caffiene and high fructose corn syrup. In addition to contributing to weight gain, soda increases your risk of diabetes, bone weakening and tooth decay.

Just 10 | Rule #2: Stop Eating at Least 3 Hours Before Bed

The kitchen closes 3 hours before bedtime. Schedule your dinners and eat at the table where you can be conscious of what, and how much, you’re eating.

Just 10 | Rule #3: Move for 10 Minutes Each Day

Studies indicate that moving just 10 minutes a day can improve your cardiovascular fitness and your heart health; it’s also true that you can drop 10 pounds by exercising just 10 minutes a day. Gunnar has designed 3 moves to help you lose 10 pounds:

The Cart Cleanup: After grocery shopping, take your cart to the farthest cart stand. The walk should take you about 10 minutes.
The 10-Minute Walk: Self-explanatory, but look at your bracelet and remember your commitment to spread the word about the importance of losing 10 pounds. Invite your neighbor, husband, dog, roommate...anyone to walk with you.
Convert Your Couch: During commercial breaks, convert your couch into a piece of exercise equipment. Click here to view Gunnar's 3 total-body moves.

Just 10 | Rule #4: Exercise Portion Control

Dr. Ro's rule doesn't ban your favorite foods, but you must exercise portion control in order to drop lose 10 pounds. Instead of eating straight from the bag or box, a habit that makes it difficult to track how much you're eating, portion your favorite snacks into small bowls or plastic bags. Follow Dr. Ro's rule of thumb: Don't eat any snacks larger than the size of you fist.

Just 10 | Rule #5: Weigh Yourself Every Day

Each day, pull out the scale, step on and be courageous, because knowing what you weigh will enable the change. Research shows that, if you track your progress and stay accountable, you will lose weight.

Take a Vitamin B Complex Every Day
Vitamin B Complex metabolizes carbohydrates, proteins and and fatty acids in the body giving you the energy to exercise.

Take Your Vitamins

Each day, take the following: Calcium (600 mg, plus 600 mg from food) and Magnesium (400 mg) – it supports bone strength and prevents fractures. Vitamin D3 (1,000 IU taken with DHA) can help prevent memory loss and heart disease. DHA (900 mg) supports memory and vision while decreasing heart attacks and stroke. Probiotics taken in spore form can help decrease infections and inflammations. Finally, a daily multivitamin will help counteract a less than perfect diet of nutrients.

At times, the difference between what you weigh and what you want to weigh can seem insurmountable. You’re not alone in your frustration. The average American woman has a BMI of 28, which is overweight – nearly obese. Her waists measures 37 inches, almost 5 inches too wide, and she weighs nearly 165 pounds. In 1960, the average American woman’s weight was 140 pounds. If we continue at this rate, in the next 50 years, your daughter or granddaughter will weigh 190 pounds.
America is in need of a lifestyle change. It can be intimidating; however, the benefits of weight loss aren’t reserved for those who drop 30, 50 or 100 pounds. By losing just 10 pounds, you can prevent deadly illness, alleviate daily pain, and improve your quality of life.
Are you ready to change your life? Read on to learn all you have to gain from losing just 10 pounds:

1. A Lower Cholesterol Level
Being overweight is linked to high levels of LDL, which is the “bad” type of cholesterol. As LDL cholesterol circulates through your blood, it can deposit plaque in your arteries, narrowing them – which can lead to heart attack or stroke.
Exercise and a healthy diet will help increase your HDL cholesterol, which is the “good” type of cholesterol that stops LDL from depositing on your artery walls. Ten pounds of weight loss can lower cholesterol by more than 10%.

2. Lower Blood Pressure
Blood pressure measures the pressure on your artery walls, so if you have plaque buildup in your arteries, your blood pressure will be high. Hypertension thickens the walls of the heart, leaving them stiff and prone to heart failure. As the heart works harder, blood vessels in the kidneys can be damaged, which can lead to kidney failure. Losing 10 pounds will decrease your blood pressure, protecting your heart and kidneys.

3. Reduced Risk for Heart Attacks
Excessive plaque buildup can result in dangerously narrowed arteries. In the case of a heart attack, your coronary artery becomes completely blocked, cutting off the oxygen that your heart muscle needs, with possibly fatal results.
As mentioned above, weight loss lowers your blood pressure and cholesterol. Incredibly, just 10 pounds of weight loss can result in a greater than 50% risk reduction for heart attacks.

4. Reduced Risk for Dementia
Nearly half of Americans have too much visceral fat, the abdominal fat that surrounds your internal organs, visible in their protruding bellies. The danger is this: visceral fat contains cells that release inflammation-causing chemicals in the body, which can cause memory loss and increase your chances of developing dementia.

Additionally, 2 symptoms of obesity, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, can put you at risk for stroke. Some strokes, known as “silent strokes” can occur without symptoms – but each time, blood is cut off to the brain, resulting in damaged, dementia-prone brain tissue. High blood pressure and cholesterol can also increase the likelihood that you’ll develop Alzheimer’s disease.

5. Reduced Risk for Sleep Apnea
When you are overweight, extra tissue thickens your windpipe wall, narrowing your airway. Consequently, the size of your tongue and tonsils become a threat to the narrowed airway – especially when you are sleeping, and can cause a life-threatening condition known as sleep apnea. In this illness, an unsuccessful effort to take in air results in a dangerously low oxygen level. Your brain shocks your body awake to keep you alive. If you have severe sleep apnea, you can be woken up hundreds of times a night.
Losing just 10 pounds can widen your windpipe, helping you sleep through the night and reduce your risk for developing sleep apnea. And when you sleep well, your levels of leptin (the hormone that signals when you’ve had enough to eat) rise. So, a good night’s sleep will help you lose even more weight.

6. Reduced Joint Pain
Being overweight puts huge pressure on your joints. For each extra pound of excess weight on your body, you add 3 times that amount of pressure on your knees. This means that 10 extra pounds equates to 30 pounds of pressure grinding down. And when walking up stairs, multiply your extra weight by 7. Thirty pounds of pressure just became 70 pounds. Over time, this force wears away your cartilage, leaving an area of arthritis. As you lose weight and reduce the pressure on your joints, the cushioning between your bones will build back up. A 10 pound weight loss over 10 years may result in as much as a 50% decrease in your odds of developing osteoarthritis.

7. Reduced Risk for CancerObesity increases cancer risk. The exact reasoning remains unclear– but fat cells are highly active, releasing large amounts of hormones like estrogen, insulin, and insulin-like growth factors that can fuel many cancers.
The risk for many types of cancers declines when you lose weight, but it's particularly true for breast and uterine cancer, where losing only 8 pounds can significantly reduce the levels of specific carcinogenic hormones.
8. Reduced Risk for Diabetes
The more excess weight on your body, the less sensitive your cells become to insulin, the hormone that manages the movement of sugar into your cells. Being overweight puts you at huge risk for developing type 2 diabetes,  where your body’s cells become resistant to insulin and cannot function properly as a result. By getting active and controlling your weight, you can increase your response to insulin. A weight loss of 10 pounds can reduce your chance of getting diabetes by 60%.

9. Improved Sex Life
Your sex drive is affected by high blood pressure and diabetes, conditions you’re likely to have if you’re overweight. Additionally, erectile dysfunction can be a problem for as many as 80% of obese and overweight men.

10. Taking Less Medications
Even if you only reduce the dosage you currently need for high blood pressure or diabetes, you’ll still save money on your prescriptions. A recent study estimated that cutting just 100 calories a day could prevent or eliminate 71.2 million cases of obesity and save $58 billion annually in the United States.

BONUS: You’ll Feel better!Your omentum is the pouch that contains your belly fat. The extra weight you are carrying on your omentum begins to squeeze your kidneys. Your blood pressure raises and your liver fattens; the accumulation of this fat characterizes nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. This added weight leaves your liver unable to process toxins. Over time, your liver hardens, and scar tissue begins to build up to replace liver cells. This scarring is called cirrhosis, which leaves you feeling tired and groggy.
Weight loss will allow your liver to recover. As it repairs itself, it decreases the toxins in your body. You’ll see changes in how you feel and behave.
