Featuring - Danielle

Hello everyone!  I have finally gotten around to posting my feature on Danielle.  I met Danielle a couple of years ago at the bible conference my family attends every year, but this year was the first time we got to know each other.  Danielle and I have sons that are about one year apart, so with me  being in charge of the nursery I got to know her and her son. 
I love her smile!

Danielle has been natural for over seven years.  She once had relaxed hair that went a little beyond her shoulders.  She got tired of all the maintenance of relaxed hair and one day she cut it all off.  I don't mean like she transitioned for a couple of months and then wore a TWA.  No, she buzzed it all off!  She wore a fade.  The type of hair cut that had her father walk past her because he didn't recognize her.  Some family and friends thought she was crazy, but she stuck to her guns.

When I asked her about her routine the first thing out of her mouth was to say "I use water".  Just the opposite of when she was relaxed.  She also uses organic olive oil and that's it at this point.  Danielle is very much into natural products and that is why she uses water and olive oil.  I suggested to her to try Terressentials because it is mud and you can't get more organic than mud.  Unfortunately, Terressentials doesn't have a store location near her so she would have to order online.  Check it out Danielle I have heard a lot of good things about this mud!

Now, when I touched Danielle's hair it was super thick.  I mean so thick that when she wanted to get it flat ironed she was turned down by multiple Dominican salons.  Hello, the Dominicans turned her down!  She ended up going to several Dominican salons before one of then said that they could straighten her hair.
I love this headband!

While at the conference Danielle wore twists in the front and then a twist out.  I loved her hair accessories!  I had to get a picture of one of her hair styles with the white headband.  Overall, Danielle's best accessory is her smile.  The entire week I observed her laughing and smiling and basically having a great attitude about everything, including the 6 am fire alarm that went off Sunday morning.  Danielle's strong faith in God and her lovely personality just had to be featured.  Much love and thank you Danielle for allowing me to feature you on my blog.  Until next time...
Blessings!

  2. wow! I can't believe she was turned down! but I guess it's better than having them mess up her hair. I get hairstylists complain about the thickness of my when I was relaxed. Now they have two complaints. too thick and "difficult"
    also, could you email me your mailing address for the postcards? I couldn't find your email on here. Please go on my profile to get my email address.

  4. Oh yes, if a stylist (of any persuasion) believes that one's hair will be too much work, they won't do it. I'm actually glad they did because they would have thought that they would have needed to put so much heat on it to get it straight, it wouldn't have surprised me if she lost some of her curl. Her twists are beautiful!! And Danielle, if you are reading this . . . YES!! on the Terressential Hair Wash. It is fabulous.

    1. I'm with you and I think she would love the Terressential Hair Wash being that it's mud and she loves natural products. Try it Danielle!
