The Dangers of Expecting Black Women to Over Perform at Work

After recently watching Netflix’s Self Made: Inspired by Madame C.J. Walker, I thanked God for how far [Black] women have come. Since the days Sarah Breedlove, a daughter to former slaves, amassed millionaire status, Black women have created products that now populate shelves in Target, Walmart, and Whole Foods, and opened businesses that serve communities around the world.

Scalp Health: Healthy Hair Begins with a Healthy Scalp

There’s been an increased focus on hair care and what products we can use to keep our hair healthy in today’s beauty world, but the scalp often gets neglected or skipped altogether.

The Power Of Moving In Silence

Your dreams, wants, and desires are special and unique to you. They are a grounded embodiment of what success and happiness will look and feel like through your eyes and your eyes only. As a Rooted Woman, not everyone will understand your drive, and some may doubt or try to sway the firm assurance you have within yourself and your capabilities. While we cannot control how they perceive your essence, you can control who you let into your evolved mind and space. Protect your dreams as you do your body, mind, and soul. Shield it from the negative energy that comes in all forms. And believe that all will manifest in divine timing.
