    Episode # 4 - Her Hair-Story w/ Sheran Pierre

    Episode # 4 - Her Hair-Story w/ Sheran Pierre

    Growing up, Sheran's aunt mostly did her hair. But her aunt didn't have enough patience to do my hair because she moved around a lot. So one day, her aunt decided to relax her hair. It was a Saturday. She was 6 years old and her aunt applied the relaxer. She remembers seeing the "Just for Me" box and thinking that her hair was going to look just like the girls' hair on the box. Boy, was she disappointed. As a kid, she really, really, really wanted long hair but she never thought she could achieve it because she was just a regular black girl. Not mixed. No Indian in her family. None of that.

    Episode #3 - Her Hair-Story w/ Allyson Springett of Mystique Natural

    Episode #3 - Her Hair-Story w/ Allyson Springett of Mystique Natural

    Allyson's natural hair journey started when my white male endocrinologist asked me why black women relax their hair?
    She explained to him the challenges we faced with our hair, not just the maintenance but the discrimination in schools and the workplace. The conversation was deep. He then gave her the CONS of the chemical breakdown of relaxers and the effects of them on the mind, body, and spirit. And from that very moment, she decided to stop relaxing her hair.

    Here are 3 Hair Benefits from exercising
    Increases blood circulation to the scalp which in turn nourishes and stimulates growth in the hair follicle.  Helps to reduce stress-related hair loss/shedding by producing a hormone called serotonin.  Helps sleep better which leads to better cell renewal….and since hair is the fastest growing cell in our body it definitely benefits from this.
