It’s been a while y’all! All summer to be exact! Life’s been pretty busy on me end, work, moving, ministry… It’s been a lot to juggle but I love it. In the mist of it all I’ve really been thinking about my blog and how it can grow as I grow. When I first started TheHaiRazor it was ALL about hair, I mean it’s called TheHaiRazor, lol! As the years have gone by “TheHaiRazor” name became more than just a blog, it became me. Folks will call me TheHaiRazor before they even call me by my first name, which is Ayana, for those who didn’t know. Anywho, there are so many things outside of just hair that I love to share with you all, things about life, health, and of course beauty. At first I was a bit scared because folks try to put you in a box and when you jump out of it, stomp on it, then set it on fire, they act real funny about your actions and the change you made.
I really want TheHaiRazor to be about all things women, all things beauty, all things life! Let’s focus on the right things, working on us from the inside, out and not just the superficial icing on the cake. So with all that being said, I’m gonna do me, I’m a vegetarian on a quest to better health, and working on me from the inside, out. I want to share tips, tricks, everything about life with you! I pray you enjoy and continue to ride with me…. TheHaiRazor!
The summer months are fun but can be so damaging to your hair. With the sun, pools, and our carefree attitude, our hair often feels dry around this time. I have color so sometimes it’s like a double whammy! To help moisturize my hair during the summer months, I of course deep condition. But instead of just my favorite conditioner, I also add coconut oil. Y’all know how much I LOVE coconut oil! It really does wonders! Sometimes I will put straight coconut oil on my hair before I shampoo and let it sit for a few hours or over night. Other times I will add the coconut oil to one of my favorite conditioners ( Paul Mitchell Super Charged or Clear Shea Butter Conditioner, purchase HERE ), let it sit for about 20-30 minutes then rinse, mold and style. Either way, my hair feels softer and more moisturized. I know we can be very busy and on the go in the summer but please take time to care for your hair! XOXO
Hey everyone! So I get asked all the time about the green smoothie recipe that I drink. Well, here it is! Now I’m not the originator of this recipe, I use the famous Glowing Green Smoothie recipe by Kimberly Snyder. I LOVE this version of the green smoothie because well it was the first one I ever tried and its soooo good! I prefer smoothie’s over juicing because you get all of the nutrients from your fruits and vegetables. Juicing extracts some nutrients and leave the others. I know some folks may see different, but to each it’s own.
Here’s what you’ll need: ( This makes 60 ounces )
1 1/12 cups of water
1 head organic romaine lettuce, chopped
1/2 head large bunch or 3/4 small bunch organic spinach
3-4 stalks organic celery
1 organic apple, cored and chopped
1 organic pear, core and chopped
1 organic banana
Juice of 1/2 organic lemon
** I also add juice of 1/2 organic orange
Ok so first, I do not have a top of the line blender and that’s really not required. I have a Cuisinart blender but it works really good until I get the Vitamix that I really want. Not as smooth but it works!
Add your water and chopped romaine lettuce and spinach first. Let that blend then add your celery, apple, pear and blend again. Add your banana, lemon juice and orange juice last and there you have it, an amazing Glowing Green Smoothie!
