How is YOUR spirit looking?

I went to a shoot a couple of months ago for a project that was being done for a cosmetics company's special 10 year anniversary. There were beautiful women there from all walks of life. 20-something ladies in school, 30-something business women, all chatting and excited about the filming and being a part of something this revolutionary. Now, as with any large group of people, there were a few that left that "bad taste" in your mouth.

One of the questions asked of us for the filming was to the effect of " do you measure beauty in yourself and others". One of the ladies remarked to me, "If your spirit is ugly, then regardless of how you look on the outside, it's a wrap." Well, in my opinion she hit the nail on the head with that one. More often than not, we as women meet one another with a raised or furrowed brow as opposed to a warm smile and nice hello. We scrutinize attire from head to toe as if we are stylists to the stars! Ever stop to think why? Well, I did. I have a theory. It's all about your own self esteem and demons. If you know that you are not true, then you will constantly and consistantly be weary of others that may be like you. If you know that your intentions are less than honorable, then you are going to again be concerned that others are too looking to get the preverbial leg up at your expense.

Give it a rest yall. Life is short, and love is abundant in supply. So I ask you 2012...

How is YOUR spirit looking?

Nu-Gro Hair Products

Nu-Gro is a natural products company started in 1988 at Shreveport, LA. The creator was W.D. Andrews, but as of 2003, the company is being run by his son, Greg Andrews. Nu-Gro's primary focus has been hair growth products, however, they also offer a range of other natural products including weight-loss, eye lash growth, and arthritis and gout pain ointment.

Nu-Gro's hair care line is extensive and offers something for everyone. I've been using the system off and on since 2009 and have notice (along with others) a HUGE difference in my hair's thickness and length. Often I'm asked what types of hair the product can be used on. According to Greg, they've tried the products on 42 nationalities with positive hair growth results on all.

I started using Nu-Gro in February of 2009. Over the previous year, I had noticed my hair thinning which was foreign to me because growing up I'd ALWAYS had thick hair. My beautician attributed it to my age (at the time I was 34, stress, child birth, etc. I heard her, but was not willing to give up. I think I'd tried just about every shampoo and conditioner that had been raved about from here to the moon. Price was no object for me either. If it was $.99 or $50, I was ready to put the investment into the health of my hair. So around that time, I ran across a video from Ateyaaa on YouTube about this new product called Nu-Gro that was doing wonders for her hair. Well why not give it at try? Ateya's hair was gorgeous, and shiny. So I immediately placed my order and waited patiently for my shipment(thankfully it only took two days). I opened the box and ran to wash my hair!! The first thing that I noticed was that this green grainy concoction smelled like medicine. At that point though, I was willing to try anything. There were actual pieces of herbs in the shampoo, you could see them, feel The shampoo was also very thin, but did build a nice lather after the first wash. I could not believe how silky my hair felt during this wash, especially since I was in dire need of a touch up. I followed through with the conditioner, which was thick, but not super thick like a treatment. Once I finished, my hair was like butta'!! I noticed a difference right away. I incorporated Hair Gro Oil with the shampoo and conditioner, and watched my hair grow and thicken like magic!! If you're interested in more details, here are some of my videos from YouTube with more details.

As of 2011, Nu-Gro has revamped their products and have an amazing line of new inventory. From 2009 to now, I feel like there was a new product every time I went to purchase replacements. Here are a few of the products currently in their line. For more details, check out the Nu-Gro website.
