Lyfe’s regal bone structure that mirrors how royal she looks in tribal prints, comes from an enviable mix of her parents’ Indian, Portuguese, African American and Caucasian heritage. There is not a cell of blandness in Lyfe from her arms of beads and ethnic bangles to her identification with the book, Women who Run with the Wolves, where females are celebrated for their strong spirits rather than the American archetype of the dainty woman. In what Lyfe calls her “Jackie O” moment, with bold white oversized round shades, she says that she loves older women and can’t wait to look back and laugh at it all. She is already as a single mom at 25, wise beyond her years, and commanding in her elegant head wraps and chains.”I don’t like to look at things as being difficult, I look at my journey as it just is,” Lyfe says, which is particularly inspiring coming from someone whose parents lost custody of her and her siblings while growing up.
Hardly the ugly duckling that Lyfe claims she has been in her family, adversity has brought her to where she is now. She is perceptably sophisticated in silk wrap dresses with chunky clip-on earrings and confident in her destiny to be the mother of Mason, who Lyfe feels has taught her love in the purest form. Fortune would have it that her grandparents, who brought her up, taught her that the woman can be the man and the man the woman in a relationship. Lyfe will never be “suzie homemaker,” she states, with her sharp focus on becoming a holistic healer and her passion for dance, poetry and whatever creative force makes her tic in the moment. Her grandfather was “the greatest man ever,”Lyfe feels, “he is the woman” in that he gave her all she needed to appreciate herself, including being comfortable enough to know her pain.

Hair is the fastest growing tissue in the body, second only to bone marrow.

35 meters of hair fibre is produced every day on the average adult scalp.

The average scalp has 100,000 hairs. Redheads have the least at 80,000; brown and black haired persons have about 100,000; and blondes have the most at 120,000.

90% of scalp hairs are growing and 10% are resting.

It is normal to lose 100 hairs per day from the scalp.

You must lose over 50% of your scalp hairs before it is apparent to anyone.

Many drugs can cause hair loss.

Thyroid imbalance and iron deficiency are reversible causes for hair loss.

Over 50% of men by age 50 have male pattern hair loss.

Forty percent of women by the time they reach menopause will have female pattern (hereditary) hair loss.

Well, there you have it!

Delicious News!!!....

Two New Reasons To Love Ancient Blends Natural Hair Care Products

I've just added organic dried pomegranate fruit and green tea leaves to my Ancient Blends natural hair and body product line! I started drinking this amazing, fruity blend some time ago and one day it dawn on me that I should start adding this combination to my hair products? I added it to my herbal hair conditioning rinse first. It smelled so good that I was also inspired to steeped an infusion of these two and add it to my shampoo. Wallaaaaah!!!

I've heard it said, 'If you can't put it inside of your body, then it shouldn't go on the outside of your body.' I recall hearing that saying since I started making my own natural products years ago. So, that has become the rule for me also when it comes to making my products. As we're learning from the research done in Japan, pomegranate and green tea are very beneficial for us, so why not use it in our hair? This delicious tea is aromatic and soothing and many of us are very familiar with the powerful, anti-oxidants and other healing properties of both pomegranate and green tea.

Pomegranate fruit and green tea will help to strengthen weakened hair follicles, which will help strengthen your hair strands. When you use Ancient Blends pomegranate green tea infused shampoo followed by Ancient Blends pomegranate green tea infused leave-in conditioning hair rinse regularly; these products will begin to re-hydrate dry, brittle hair and itchy scalp, and also awakening your hair follicles to leave you with a clean, re-hydrated head of hair.

And yes, I strongly recommend that you should also drink lots of pomegranate and green tea for optimal internal healing benefits. It makes a delicious tea; hot or cold, and it's just good for your body. You'll start to experience a sense of well being and notice that you feel more alert as you go through the day.

These wonderful gifts from mother nature are added benefits for your natural hair care needs. Personally, I'm in love with the scent of my new products, and I would like to share them with you. So, there you have it...two great new reasons to choose Ancient Blends natural hair care products for your natural hair.

So, ask for them by name...
