A simple rule…

I made a simple rule for myself that ensures I always read my scriptures, every single day. I am not allowed to read any books until I have read a chapter/section in the scriptures. Since I quite enjoy reading books, this works great for me and I haven’t missed a day of reading in months. (I also have Read Scriptures as one of my daily to do’s and I really like crossing things off my list so that helps as well.)

Lather, Rinse, Repeat

The instructions on shampoo bottles always say to lather, rinse, and repeat. I figured this was just a way to sell more shampoo since you’d have to use twice a much.

Then I took the hair care course from Tutus & Tennis Shoes. In there, Kanisha says to wash the kids’ hair twice and then condition. I’ll do pretty much whatever Kanisha says to do so we immediately started shampooing twice before conditioning.

And then I tried washing my own hair twice and it’s pretty much life-changing. They weren’t just trying to sell more shampoo. Shampooing my hair twice leaves it feeling so much cleaner. The kids’ hair is left nicer, too. I’m sold!

(By the way, if you are a white mom raising Black children, I very, very highly recommend taking Kanisha’s The Beauty and Science of Black Hair Care Course. It’s totally worth the time and money. You won’t regret it.)
