"Beautiful Inside and Out"

Hello everyone!!

I hope everyone is doing well and getting their shopping done! Can you believe there is only 2 weeks left until Christmas? I am soo excited!! I love this time of year. The kids are excited, all of the neighborhood is decorated with lights and the jam packed stores and TRAFFIC!! HA!!

It really is a fun time. We only have one week left of school. I can't wait for that!! I need to get the rest of my shopping done. Nothing like waiting til the last minute!!

Well, in the past week I have received several responses to my blogs. I do want you all to understand that I totally believe that it is what is on the inside that counts. What makes a person beautiful is not what they look like on the outside such as "beautiful skin" or "hair". What matters is what is on the inside. I truly believe this!! My husband and I try our best to instill these morals in our children. I don't want them to treat people differently because of looks as I don't want anyone treating them differently. It just seems that hair has always been an issue for my daughter. Every since she was a tiny baby, people have always gone up to her talking about how beautiful her hair is. She has heard this about a million times. Even last night at her choir concert, a mom came up to her and said people would kill for her hair. She went on and on about how beautiful it was and that she wished she had hair like it. So maybe in a way, because she has heard this so much, she is kind of obsessed with her hair. Although, she wants it to be straight. So even though she hears this, she wants it different. So, I guess what I am trying to say wanting people to try this product, I am not trying to change the way their hair totally looks. I just want them, as well as the parents of multi-racial children, to feel confident in themselves. Many parents have emailed me with concerns about how to take care of their childs hair. I just want to save them the time and money from what I went through when my daughter was young.

PS...I have had numberous requests for more before and after pictures. If any of you have used the product, whether on yourself, your child, being multi-racial or African American, please send me your photos. From what one of my readers has stated: "It worked wonders for her hair!" (she was an adult African American)

Until Next Time,
"Sunflower Mom"
