Teach Them to Embrace Their Curls with Born Curly® Hair Products!

This post brought to you by As I Am® Naturally. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Being Melody. Just the other day I was laughing with my hairstylist over memories of having my hair pressed as a child. The hot comb would sit on the eye of the stove, and I would patiently sit as my grandmother pressed my hair for Sunday service the next day. The hardest part about having my hair pressed as a child was the full 24hrs I wasn’t allowed to act like a child for fear my hair would revert to its…

Shea Moisture African Water Mint & Ginger Hair & Scalp Collection

Taking care of your scalp is just as important as taking care of your skin. As a naturalista, I often put several layers of products on my hair when styling and then add more products to freshen throughout the week. It’s no wonder that by the end of the week  I get flakes and build up on my scalp. My favorite products for clearing out my pores and detoxifying my skin all have one thing in common, activated charcoal. Activated charcoal is charcoal that has been treated in order enhance its adsorptive power.  Now that I’ve incorporated activated charcoal into…

Defeat Natural Hair Dryness With Salon Inspired Products from Sally Beauty

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sally Beauty. My hair has undergone lots of changes. It’s been purple and blonde, styled in a tapered fashion, and even completely shaved off in an undercut style. It’s safe to say my hairstyles have run the gamut, and while this year I vowed to keep my styles a bit more toned down, I still haven’t been able to avoid dryness. A while back, I shared with you all how I identified where my dryness was coming from, but I’m still working to treat this problem.  I’m a product junkie,…

My 2015 Year End Hairstyle Review

  With it being the end of the year and all I’m excited to share my 2015 hairstyle review. This has seriously been a great hair year for me! I did some serious experimenting. This was probably the last year that I was really going to be able to have fun and try different styles before heading back into the workforce so I did it all. I grew out my hair from a low cut, then chopped it off into a tapered style. I got bored with that and shaved off my sides, then I got really bold and shaved…

Your Hair Deserves a Luxury Treatment with Show Beauty Hair Products.

I love a good hair oil. One of my favorite things to do with hair oils is to use them before I shampoo as it helps to soften the hair and protects the hair from sulfates in the shampoo that can strip the hair of all it’s vital moisture. I’ve tried many hair oils and hair fragrances, but I’ve never used or smelled ones as decadent as the Show Beauty Hair Products. I was sent the Show Beauty Pure Treatment Hair Oil and Decadence Hair Fragrance a while back and to be honest, the products got lost in the cave…

How I Acheive a Funky yet Healthy Summer Hair Style with Beautiful Textures

One of the biggest…
