        Hi Alyssa! First and foremost – write about what you love. That will show through your posts and people will be attracted to that. Secondly, tag your posts properly! For example, if you are writing about a Chanel Bag, use the tags “Chanel Bag, Chanel, Designer Bag, Karl Lagerfeld, Designer, Fashion, BOTD (bag of the day)”, etc. Keep your tags general enough that people searching on the net can find them. Thirdly, people love bright, clear pictures that are framed well and interesting. Google “Blogging for beginners” – there are lots of great tips out there, and check out this link: http://stylecaster.com/a-beginners-guide-to-starting-a-blog/. It helped me greatly. Have fun and enjoy blogging! You are going to do great! xoxoxoxo

      Thanks for the follow! I’m a closet tree hugger! I supervise my husband’s yard work from the couch! (I have a bad back so gardening is out for me) I love to shop too. I’m a big thrift shop shopper!

        You’re welcome! Excellent (on all counts)!!! I have a bad back too thanks to all the gardening. So annoying. I think I’m singlehandedly keeping my physiotherapist in business. I should put my husband to work too! xo

      Hi Dominque,
      I love watching you on you tube about relaxed hair. I’m learning so much. I’m natural now but decided to go back to relaxer in August when I turn 50. I loved my relaxed hair but it would break. I use to relax about every 6 weeks my entire head and nothing in between. You have taught me so much how to care for relaxed hair. I had no idea I was doing it all wrong.
      I really appreciate you sharing this important information.
      Question , where can I buy the Olaplex conditioner you mentioned, and if you don’t mind me asking, how old are you?

        Hi Tanya! I’m so glad you are able to learn from me and find my tips helpful! So, as you now know, only relax your new growth. Anything else will cause overprocessing. And don’t forget to deep condition, moisturize and seal regularly!

        You can order the Olaplex online from http://www.sephora.com, buy in store at Sephora, and the line is also carried at high quality salons. Lastly, I’m 42 years young.

        Stay in touch and let me know how your relaxer goes!

        Dom xo

      Hi Dominique,

      I’m a fan of your videos on YouTube regarding relaxed hair, love it. I’m from France and live now in the United States for 10 years. I found amazing how African American women take care so well of their hair and how they can grow it so long… I was wondering if you have a video about how you maintain your edges. I would love to know how you keep your edges so straight specially after working out. Thanks for all the tips you share on YouTube!

        You’re welcome! Thanks for your kind comments! When I go to the States, I’m amazed too! Especially down South where the weather is warmer and really beneficial to hair. I do have a “How To Care For Your Edges” video that you can view here, but I really should update it: https://youtu.be/ndQ1MRQwK30. Thanks for reading, luv!
