Natural Hair, Natural Care

Alhamdulilah I have been enjoying my natural hair for about 8 years now. It's definitely important for me to know, whats in my beauty products that I use, and how to best take care of my natural hair.

 When Sis Taliah approached me about her hair products, I was excited.  Her Facebook page  Sister Taliah's Naturals is full of resources and awareness of the importance of natural products. She sent me three awesome products to try for 4 weeks.

3 and 1 African Black Soap
Hair Love
And T Mix



T Mix- Is my favorite, I was addicted to the smell, and not only does it smell so good, it has healthy ingredients. Taken from the website:  This special blend is designed to add moisture to the hair. 


 Tried and true my trouble areas with my hair started to trouble me no more. Each ingredient in the blend has a special purpose. For instance Jamaican Black Castor Oil helps with thinning hair and promotes hair growth. If you don't believe me, you have to try it out for yourself!

3 and 1 African Soap-  Also smells good and made my hair clean and scalp. I never really used black soap in my hair before, so this was a first and it was a good experience. Why is it three in 1? Its a shampoo, face and body wash mashaAllah and having all those benefits in one bottle is pretty awesome.  Purchase Taliah's Naturals here and please share with your friends!

Hair Love is also a great product mashaAllah, I am so happy that there is a sister making these products for everyone and its natural, it works and Sister Taliah cares about health and what goes on in our bodies. 
Hair Love--  Is a special blend is designed to make thinning hair grow in thick. Made with 100% pure Coconut pulp and oil and Jamaican Black Castor Oil . Massage on scalp weekly for great results.


T Mix "This special blend is designed to add moisture to the hair.  Use on scalp for thick, long growing hair. Ingredients:  Olive Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Jamaican Black Castor Oil, Morrocan Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil, and all natural fragrances. "
Yes!!! It smells amazing and it works! MashaAllah!! These products will become part of my regular hair care regime inshaAllah.


"According to Mercola.com, the body can absorb as much as five pounds of cosmetic chemicals every year. Parabens can mimic hormones in the body and disrupt functions of the endocrine system"

Yikes!

Nowadays there are so many harmful products all in the name of money and "beauty" but the reality is, a lot of them are doing more harm than good, and thats quite ugly!. Products being tested on animals, made from unhealthy ingredients, and with words you and I, most likely cannot identify the source!

For example:

Parabens: found in deodorants and other products, it has been said that parabens mimic estrogen and high lifelong exposure to estrogen can increase the risk in breast cancer. 


Phthalataes- mostly found in plastics and in cosmetics like nail polish, is said to put women in high elevated risk for diabetes. 

Do we really want to add those things to our body? Who knows what we are putting on our skin! thats why it is important to go with products we can trust, and support the honest, hardworking families alhamdulilah

At the end of the day, I feel good with making more health conscious choices and supporting businesses that are working to do that.

InshaAllah visit Sis Taliah's store and let her know that the Traditional Muslimah Homemaker, sent you!!

Please share this post as well, so others can be informed inshaAllah

The Passing Of A Prince

One month later...  If you would have told me, that I would be eventually blogging as a widow, I would have probably said that I couldn't imagine it!

Well here I am, writing as a widow. My husband (may Allah have mercy on him, and grant him jannah ameen ameen) passed away last month, December 20th, 2016, from complications from his condition.  My whole life changed and I am learning to heal and process this tremendous loss with our six children.

I met my husband in 2006 mashaAllah, and as I like to tell people, I started this adventure 10 yrs ago when I met a Prince from Kings County (Brooklyn NYC) married him, and became his princess alhamdulilah. When we first met, I felt like "wow this handsome guy, I cant believe he is even giving me the time of day." Lord knows I am thankful for all the time of our days, our road trips, and adventures.

I think of an old status message I shared on facebook
" I've dedicated ten years of my heart to this loveable adventurous g…

As salamu alaykum To The Struggling Wife

As salamu alaykum to The Struggling wife....





You are the heart of the home. You are his support, his cheerleader, and he needs you to be by his side. Do you know how important you are to him and to your home?

You are worth more than you know. It may not be said often, but without you... Life would be a little more difficult.

I know you're struggling right now to be a better wife and I know you want to do better. Don't put too much pressure on yourself.

Keep asking Allah to guide you in becoming a better wife. Realize that you have a lot of worth and your husband knows it, he married you, he knew you were the woman who could make his life better.

Write down what you can do to make your marriage better and focus on that daily. He put you with this man, that you love, that you decided to marry. You made a commitment, and you said "I am his committed helper." so keep going! Yes it's not always easy, sometimes you want to leave... But you are a strong, praying woman. …

Remember Who Your Husband Is

On the eve of our 9th year anniversary, I'm doing a lot of reflecting. I saw a blog post entitled "Remember Who Your Husband Is." and the title stood out to me but in a different way so I decided to write my own post. I'm reflecting on nine years of marriage and who my husband is.

So who is he?

Lets remember ..

He is a gift from Allah.

Allah blessed me with him and it is my great honor to take care of my gift.
He is not to be abused, mistreated, and taken for granted. Allah has put us together and  for that I'm thankful Alhamdulilah. I'm here to assist him in the best way possible. Allah did not burden me with him, He did not curse me, but what He did do is bless me Alhamdulilah! When you know you are blessed you show gratitude!

He is the leader of our home.

Not only did Allah send me this gift. He also put me under his leadership. In remembering who he is, we must remember and respect his position of leadership. We should always pray that Allah is constantl…
