Yesterday, Friday, January 20th, 2012 a lenendary songstress and biracial individual, Etta James passed away from leukemia at the age of 73. Recently Etta James had been battling cancer and was in the final stages of leukemia. Not one disease could kill the soul of such a remarkable legend. Etta James will live on throughout her raspy emotional blues filled voice.
One thing that I admired the most about Etta James was her attitude. I have never known one woman to be as fiesty as Etta James. James was well respected for her confidence and attitude. Her presence will remain with us all every time we hear her songs.
Another Angel has arrived in heaven. xo
Until next time . . .
Since reading Heidi Durrow’s novel, “The Girl Who Fell From The Sky” last year I have felt so lost. The book grasped me by my heart and captivated me. It was dreadful when i came to read the last page, all because the journey Heidi Durrow took me on had came to an end. The novel was amazing and so beuatifully written. I often find myself rereading it over and over again. The story never gets old to me. You know when a book is good when you feel like you are the main character when reading.
I am looking forward to reading more books from Heidi Durrow. The story she told in “The Girl Who Fell From The Sky” was so rich and filled with reality. I can guarentee that you will fall in love with the story and the characters. If you have not already read her novel, I HIGHLY suggest that you get your hands on a copy.

Until next time. . .
- Determine the curl type — http://www.naturallycurly.com/hair-types
- Determine your approach: “chemically treated or natural hair care
Chemically treated hair can damage biracial hair. Speaking from experience a perm was accidently put into my hair and damaged my hair for about three year. When damage is caused from a perm you have to wait until the perm grows out which is a long transitioning process. A perm is not for fine or thin hair in my opinion. Keep in mind that chemically treated hair can cause hair damage such as split ends and can cause breakage.
Parents have gone with the approach of chemically treating their biracial child’s hair with the misconception of: “this will make my morning easier”. Chemically treated hair does not make doing your child’s hair easier. In reality a perm requires more maintenance than wearing your hair natural.
If you approach is natural hair care I HIGHLY Recommend: “Mixed Chicks Hair Products”.
Mixed Chicks Hair Products was created by two mixed chicks. Who better to know what biracial hair needs other than a mixed chick? I struggled for years bouncing from product to product trying to find one that works with my curly hair. I have been scammed into using Pantene, Garnier Fructis, Tresemme, Herbal Essences and Sun silk, trying out all of their products for curly hair. None of their products left my hair healthy! They always dried my hair out, which is a big NO… NO!
Mixed Chicks has a line of products to meet every Biracial hair care need. I have been using their products for some years now consistently! My hair has grown more in the past few years than in my whole life. I use the Mixed chicks shampoo, deep conditioner, leave in conditioner and hair serum. If you want to go natural . . . go with Mixed Chicks as your hair products.
