About Me

My photo
Hello, My name is Sharlinda Faith B. and I'm 25 years old. I have been a wife to my husband Nick for three and half years, and I am also a proud mother of our 3 year old son Lil Nick Jr. I'm the oldest of four children born to my black father and white mother. I'm also their only girl! Growing up our parents always told us we were mixed race and to be proud of both our heritages. Over the years my brothers and I have faced racism from both ends of the spectrum, but that never changed how we viewed ourselves. Time and Time again I've had to answer questions about my racial background, or have people angrily challenge me on how I define myself! These experiences along with the desire to know about others like me, lead me to read anything I could on the web about being biracial. I remember it as being one of the most amazing revelations in my life to find others who embraced both heritages just like I did! These last few years I have wanted to voice my opinions to the others. If enough people like me don't speak up then the world will never change.

Best Products For Curly Hair

This video shows the Devachan Salon and all their products. I must try these!

List of Things to Try

So what's on the agenda? I have heard many things about a new product line called Devchan made entirely with curly girls in mind.  I have heard nothing but goods things about the products so I'm really wanting to try once I can get enough to buy everything at once! They have some videos on Youtube about their products along with some helpful advice.

I've also heard from a co-worker of mine that Paul Mitchell Super Skinny serum is comparable to Bio Silk, but better in her opinion.

I'm sure many are familiar with Mixed Chicks leave in conditioner, but they also have a shampoo and deep conditioning treatment. I'm itching to try these as well.


Ladykohaku as a lot of useful tips. She's very upbeat and hyped up. Her videos are always fun and entertaining!

Curly hair tips for winter

Here's some great winter hair tips from latina4u55. Isn't her hair gorgeous!

Youtube Hair advice

I have to say  that I find a lot of helpful hair advice on Youtube. There are many biracial  and latina curly heads that have tons of helpful tips on maintaining beautiful curls.Today I'm recommending  Ladykohaku's  and latina4u55 channels.


Favorite New Mousse

When I let my hair dry wet without pulling back, I usually use a styling mousse or gel in it.My conditioner doesn't seem to do the trick alone. My favorite styling product tends to be mousse. It just seems to keep my hair in place and defined without being as sticky as a gel. I recently ran out of my Herbal Essence mousse and decided to try the Frizz-Ease Take Charge Curl Boosting Mousse this time around. It's a little bit more expensive, over 5.00 a bottle, but well worth it. It's an alcohol free formula and it defines my curls just right without drying out my hair.

Favorite Shampoo and Conditioner These Days

As you can surely tell, I'm always ready to try a new product. You never know what you might find!
Right now I'm currently using, and very impressed with,  Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Conditioner and Shampoo. They are both made with organic ingredients only, which keeps my hair feeling soft.I have been trying the conditioner only method in my hair when I plan to wear it curly, and the Organix conditioner is the best that I have left in so far.Up until now I had been using Herbal Essence conditioners in my hair but they are a little heavier. Organix has a slightly lighter feel to it and the scent is pleasant but  not too strong. I buy both the shampoo and conditioner at Wal-mart for about 5.94 a bottle.I've been looking online and Organix also has a coconut milk hair mouse, repair treatment, and serum I would like to try , but so far I have not seen them in stores.

It's been forever

So it has been forever since I last posted and I do sincerely apologize for this! I will definitely be more diligent in the future.  Things have been so busy at the hospital the last couple of months and it is wearing me out, not to mention my son's fourth birthday and Christmas preparations. I want to do better serving my fellow curly heads!
