Hello and Welcome to Sherry’s Life Blog – Start Here!
It is no coincidence that confident, beautiful black women rarely look disheveled at work, home or play. These smart ladies take care of themselves and invest in their appearance. Why? Simple, it sends a positive message about who you are and how you want to be treated. Period.
You don’t need to look like or have hair like a runway model when living your life. In addition, fashion, hair and beauty are not the only ways to exude intelligence and confidence; however, it sure does give you an unfair advantage in life.
We all perform for an audience, and one thing is true – attractive aesthetics, such as beautiful hair, can command power and help you win in life.
That’s why on Sherry’s Life I make it my mission to give you in-depth details on having great hair each day and the motivation to always put your best foot forward.

Step 2: Detox Your Hair Inside & Out
Sometimes we do more harm than good to our hair with all of the blow drying, flat ironing, hair dyeing, gels and hair sprays. Sometimes we are more conscious about taking care of our skin, but forget about our hair health. Unfortunately, the side effects of not paying enough attention to our hair is that it leads to thin, weak hair that has breakage and split ends. So, what’s a lady to do?
You should consider a good old-fashioned detox. Much of the food we eat today is nutrient deficient and high in processed, refined ingredients. A detox can remove bad toxins and get back our healthy hair. Want to find out how to detox your hair from the inside out? Click to read about detoxifying your hair what you need to do at home.
NUYU: The Only All-Natural, Organic Detox I Use And Trust
I’ve used NUYU for awhile and I trust the brand. I love their live chat, customer support and reliability. I have heard horror stories from other women wanting to detox their body inside before working on the outside, which includes their hair and it has been met with massive headaches. I have never had a problem with Bauer Nutrition who produces the premium supplement. This product just works, which makes me feel good!

Step 3: Use A Deep Hair Moisturizer Weekly (Pre-Shampoo)
It is vital to replenish parched hair each week with nourishing oils that will deliver moisture to your hair’s cuticle. The last thing you want is damage, so protect your vulnerable hair strands from stretching and snapping especially when it is time to wash your hair. Want to know about a great hair moisturizer? Check out the article for tips on specific hair routines that I use when moisturizing my hair. What can you use on your hair before shampooing? I use the following: Miracle Whip or Mayonnaise (yep, that stuff in your refrigerator).
Step 4: Shower Your Hair With A Nourishing Shampoo
It is vital to use a shampoo that is rich in nutrients and are free from parabens, sulfates and sodium chloride. I use a few different shampoos, but I say use whatever works best for you. The main thing your shampoo should brighten, repair and hydrate your hair, so that it is healthy and beautiful. Check out this article on keeping your hair moisturized with nutrient rich moisturizing shampoos.
Step 5: Bring Your Hair Back To Life With A Deep Conditioner
Hair cuticles, which are the outermost layer of your hair, are made of protein cells also known as keratin. They create a barrier around the cortex or root of your hair. The bad news, when extreme heat, excessive coloring, and/or UV rays harm hair cuticles, your roots lack a shield. This lack of a shield leaves your hair vulnerable to problems. That’s why every week you should use a moisturizing conditioner.
Step 6: Hair Vitamins
There have been thousands of success stories when it comes to hair vitamins. They promote healthy hair growth and also protects against dryness. Another key advantage it that they increase the elasticity of your hair’s cortex or root, which prevents breakage. It has nutrients like Vitamin B3, which promotes scalp circulation and Vitamin B5, which prevents hair loss and a lot more. Check out my favorite hair vitamin here. Not convinced yet?
My favorite hair vitamin has a blend of 19 vitamins, amino acids and other ingredients including Biotin, MSM, Silica and Kelp, which helps to eliminate and correct nutritional deficiencies. In addition, it promotes and nourishes hair for stronger, healthier growth. I seriously believe it is one of strongest hair loss vitamins on the market.
I tried new product on my hair last year and experienced serious shedding and hair loss. I started taking the Zenvita hair growth pills daily. My hair stopped shedding and started to grow back stronger and healthier. I can’t say enough good things about this product!

Finally, a huge to secret to healthy hair – always, always use a microfiber drying towel on your hair to keep from damaging your hair strands and sleep on a satin pillow case. My favorite microfiber towel is here.
Why I only use this towel on my hair:
- Aquitex fibers are finer than silk and woven tightly together to remove moisture quickly
- Less blow-drying means less damage to your hair
- Super absorbent, dries hair fast, gently and without friction
