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.

Dep Sport Gel

For a long time I had stayed away from all hair gel. It seemed like every on that I tried made my hair very stiff, sticky, and dry. Recently I picked up some cheap hair gel from Wal-mart for husband so he could spike his hair a little in the front. It's called Dep Sport : Enduring Marathon Hold 11. One day I was running out of my usual hair products and decided to give hair gel a try once more and putting it only in the ends of my curls. What I thought was just some cheap old hair gel actually worked wonders. The stuff is 100% alcohol free and does leave my hair looking white and flaky or stiff. I put it in my hair with some conditioner when wet. My curls stay defined and in place but it stays soft and still moves! I've used half a bottle already.Great product for only 1.97!
