So I have the daunting task of searching for a new job. Anybody that has been in this position knows that this can be nerve racking! The idea of waking up each day and checking your inbox to see if anyone has gotten back to you. Or applying for hundreds of jobs that you think you may qualify for but not one of those companies gives you a callback. The process can lead you to drink. Seriously.
When I started, I was faced with a number of questions: How will they react to my hair? Should I straighten it? Push it back with a headband? Do I wear a wig? Will my hair affect me not getting this position? Will I catch them looking at my hair? And YES! All of these questions flew through my head at the same damn time.
I quickly pushed all of these thoughts out of my head because:
1. I LOVE my hair.
2: Theres no way Im going to apply heat to my hair everyday especially when Ive been on a no heat strike since July.
3. I dont have any extra money to buy a wig- not a good one anyway! Lol
4. My resume speaks for itself. If I can be passed over for a position because of my hair then I wasnt meant to work for that company anyway. (Cocky much? I guess. Lol)
In other words, the answer to all of my questions: I dont care. No. No. No. I dont care. I dont care. Lol
Let me hear from you! Any others have reservations about how their natural hair affects their professional appearance? I wanna know!
Not at all close to what my mini Fro looks like but just as a reference… lol
Dealing with a full work load, a inquisitive little boy and trying to start and maintain a business is VERY challenging. I wanted to relax and unwind after a stressful day and I thought to myself ‘I havent taken a bath in awhile.’ I normally just jump in the shower everyday- Quick fast and get it out of the way but theres NOTHING like a nice hot bath to sooth the soul. The ingredients for this detox bath are easy and most of us have these things laying around the house and tucked away in the cabinets and closets anyway.
1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup of baking soda
1 cup of epsom salt
5 to 8 drops of lavender essential oil
A glass of your favorite wine (optional- and this does NOT go in the tub lol)
Personally, I like my bath water to be scorching hot from the start. I let it cool a bit, lit a couple of candles, turned on my shower speaker and jumped right in. I could immediately feel the effects. Together each component works together to eliminate pain, improve your immune system, relieve stress and leave your skin silky smooth. Like with any detox bath- the ingredients are meant to draw impurities out and will without a doubt leave you with a feeling of fatigue. Its best to use this detox before turning in for the night. Ive made a promise that I will use this detox method twice a month.
If you have any other ways you like to detox then please share and after you try this one, please come back and share your experience.
