We had the opportunity to meet Sheerdee at the Frofiesta that took place in Durban and was amazed by the philosophy she follows of wholesome living. Her approach to taking care not only of our hair, but also of our body and mind struck a connection for us.
We asked her to share some of her views and this is what she had to say:
The winter season has started and this past weekend saw the first cold front usher us into this so called blue season. As with season changes, it is important to protect your hair against the harsh conditions experienced in winter. These following tips should help you beat the cold and protect your hair against winter damage:

During my day to day business as I promote Brownchild and its AMAZING hair care range, I come across various questions. Some people ask " what ingredients does your product contain?" others will ask " How do they work together?" and other will ask "Do I need the conditioner?" I know during cost cutting measures and saving on the budget, the conditioner will be the first to go on your shopping list, but I hope after reading this article, you'll reconsider ever removing conditioner from your shopping list or even your wash day routine.
I have been looking to grow the length of my natural hair for a while. The simple get the product that tells me what I want to hear was not working for me anymore. I have been trying out different products for years and all came to fail me. So I took a step back and decided to do more reading to see what my hair will respond to. After some serious digging, I found what made sense.
I woke up determined that today will be the day I wash my hair this week. Do not get me wrong, I do not wait months to wash my hair, I aim for at least once a week. Some weeks are tougher than others and some weekends are busier than others, but after some procastinating tactics and excuses throughout the week, I had to.
I decided to go natural in 2005 when I was a teenager and I was experiencing identity crisis issues. My mom was adamant that i would relax my hair but I rebelled( not a good idea by the way) and went ahead and cut my hair, starting from beyond tinnie winnie afro, more of a brush cut to the struggles I experienced trying to prove to the local township girls and boys that afros can be cool and beautiful. To be honest it was tough because back then I did not have access to a cool phone that had access to internet or countless data bundles.
Its a new year
Judging by the trending memes towards the end of 2016, it is evident that it was not a good year for most of our fellow citizens. The same cannot be said for Brownchild as through your loyal support, we managed grow in strides, reaching more people and saving more naturalistas one strand at a time. Although it was not smooth sailing, your continued support saw us ending the year on a positive note.To you our biggest supporters, we thank you and I know, your hair will continue to love as as we nurture it through dry spells and challenging styles.
