I Tried The Coconut Oil Trend With L’Oreal Ever Curl Products Here What Happen…

As a toddler, I remember my mother daily struggle of combing my hair.She repeatedly mumbled, “what am I supposed to do with this.” My mom hair type was soft, shiny and limp where my father hair is more brittle and coarse.So when they had me my hair type was a mix of both, leading it to look dry (even if it was softer than a baby behind) and a head full of frizz.

On behalf of having a head full of frizz, my mother nicknamed me “grilla” which means cricket in Spanish.I laughed till this very day every time she calls me that, it reminds me of everything she went through to help my hair become more manageable.

Women Entrepreneurs Continue To #LashLikeABoss in 2017

We all know financially men make more than women, although withholding the same place in a corporate setting. The unfortunate fact was drilled into my head when my former high school professor educated me. Gazing through the printout in front of me, at the harsh men vs. women statistics, it boiled my blood. I could not come to terms with the fact not only women are expected to do everything, at the end of the day we will just make less than our male coworker.

Given the facts of a sexist commercial work structure, many women drift off and decide to start their own business. Many women including myself have found ways to balance their jobs and personal lives seamlessly, remain high in the face of incredible challenges, and compete against even the toughest competitors.

Last week I hung out with my cousin who was biting her nails, fussing about prom.She has been fussing about it since the first day she attended school this year.I told her the best time to start shopping for her dress is in January.
