Ouidad


ouidad1Curly-haired girls can have a hard time in the hair department. Frizz, knotting, flat spots, unmanageable curls, limp spirals. Straight-haired girls have no idea what we have to go through. That's why there are a slew of curly-haired products on the market, but finding the "right" one for your hair type can be as annoying as trying to spring life into your flat curls. That's where lines like Ouidad come in. Called, "The Curl Experts," Ouidad is a New York and Santa Monica based salon that specializes in cutting and styling curly haired girls. The salon, spearheaded by its master hairstylist, Ouidad, also offers myriad products for every curly hair type out there. In my case, my hair falls somewhere between "wavy" and "curly." (The other options are "tight curly" and "kinky.")

My biggest hair concern is that my curls fall flat, so I've been trying the PlayCurl line of products and I love them. I use the PlayCurl Volumizing Shampoo and conditioner, as well as the Volumizing Foam and Setting & Holiding Spray. After applying the products, I diffuse my hair while putting in Curl Clips to keep the curls in place. When I'm done, I have beautiful curls that are bouncy, fresh, and perfectly defined. There's no turning back.

We Hold These Truths to Be Self-Evident

Saturday, July 4, is the 239th birthday of the United States, commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence (the U.S. astrology chart has Aquarius moon—freedom for its people, by its people). Cancer, a liberating and initiating sign, is the “gate” where Spirit enters matter. Cancer receives and distributes Ray 3 (Divine Intelligence) and Ray 7 (new rules, new rhythms, new free nation under God). Cancer represents an intelligent freethinking humanity that can and must create right economics for the world. This means a policy of sharing, an opportunity for the U.S. when Venus (money, resources, possessions, etc.) retrogrades July and August in Leo (the heart of the matter). The United States has a unique spiritual task for the world: to lead humanity within and toward the light, accomplished by its people who must first awaken to this task, learn discrimination and be directed by the soul to assume the Herculean task of spiritual world leadership. Let us review the first words of our Constitution: “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America.” Let us form that union together. The following is a review of the spiritual tasks for each sign. Read all the signs. They all apply to everyone.
