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.

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.
