I always get comments in the streets about how good I smell, how smooth my skin looks, and how I have such shiny, healthy hair. Those of you who know me know about the whole organic health food regime on my Mom's side of the family, it's been going on for four generations now. My homegirls know a few of my beauty secrets, and some of them are hip to a few of the products I use. But today, in an unprecedented act, I'm going to share all my secrets right here on Pyramids 2 Projects. Check it out... And to all my gentlemen readers, don't leave yet, read ahead and click on these links - your grandmother, mother, aunties, sisters, daughters, and Queens will thank you for it!
It's Da Balm! For real, that's what it's called. Perfect for dancers, skaters, walkers, runners, bikers, or anyone who has owie feet.
I'm the third generation of women in my family to use this pure Olive Oil soap. The best face soap, period.
Jasmine Petal Sea Salt Soak...relax in a hot bath and smell good doin' it.
The true test of a righteous person - do they wash up with Dr. Bronner's? Peppermint, Lavender, or Almond are the best!
For the teeth, I like Tom's of Maine flouride-free toothpaste in Cinnamint. To keep my teeth white I sometimes brush with a paste of pure baking soda and just enough water to make it stick to the toothbrush.

Another wonderful bar soap, Dudu Osun, the best of the Black soaps I've found.
Try the Aloe Herbal Hair Wash with Ylang-Ylang & Vanilla scent.
Alba deep conditioner is thick, rich and leaves a delicious scent in your hair. I use a teeny, tiny bit as a leave-in.
