What’s Happnin’?!

kesha-headshot-2I’m Kesha! – an Atlanta blogger and graphic artist, wife to a crazy man, and most importantly… mom to a set of adorable preschool-age twins. I’ve always felt that there was a huge void in regards to the depiction of fun and positive African American families within social media. We Got Kidz not only fills that void, but in this age of social media, We Got Kidz opens the lines of communication for all moms and dads, offering up a refreshingly laid back approach to parenting to a “new generation” of parents.

So here’s what happened…

family thanksgiving 2013 small

We Got Kidz was started, in the beginning, to be a virtual album of sorts. I’ll be honest and say that I had absolutely no clue as to what I was doing. (“Blogging”?? What’s that? Sounds like something you do out in the woods.) I simply wanted a place for family and friends to come and see fun videos and pictures of my newborn twins. Often times the husband and I would trip over a toy or have a particularly frightening diaper changing experience. The reality of the fact that we were now parents would hit us heavily during these moments. We’d look at each other and say with disbelief, “We got kids!” (grammatical inaccuracy and all). I started to write about these personal experiences on my blog, and people loved it. I have a gift. What can I say? 😉 From there, We Got Kidz (with a “z” for flava’) officially began; and it has since become a full-fledged lifestyle guide for the would-be “cool” parent.

 

The 411…

Most of what you’ll read will be absolutely hilarious… or at least mildly amusing. The husband, kids, and I are just a quirky bunch by nature; so the stories we have to tell are, more often than not, hysterical. I personally spend most of my time walking that fine line between hip mom and fanny pack wearer. The hubby and I are desperate to maintain some sense of coolness. We want nothing more than to hold on to at least a shred of our funky-fresh personalities while we traverse the ups and downs of this crazy ride called parenthood. Along our journey I’ll share dope videos, awesome parenting tips, juicy entertainment news, ‘slap yo’ momma’ recipes, contributed pieces from amazing guest bloggers along with any other interesting junk that pops into my brain or slides across my desk. My husband will be making appearances here and there – popping up to regale you with his silly antics. Ultimately, we’re here to help make your life as a parent just a tad bit easier and a little bit more entertaining.

    Hi Kesha! I have a 13 yr old daughter who’s scalp gets so dry that if she scratches it, it will bleed. She will develop bumps in her head that will eventually turn into scabs because its dry. Now I come from the old school where we use oil the scalp…. well that don’t work on her because I have found that she ge even more bumps in her head. I have stopped putting grease directly on her scalp, because the bumps will come. I follow your tips on your blog and try everything you recommend 🙂 but now it seems like even the oils are causing bumps too. Wha do you suggest? I have taken her to her dr. and of course the bumps disappear before we get there, and they don’t know to properly treat black hair so they tell me to get her medicatd shampoo and see if that helps. Well…. it doesn’t. Any advice or guidence you can offer would be greatly apprectiated!

      Hi!
      I think your first step needs to be to get a second opinion from another doctor or dermatologist. It sounds like she may be allergic to a certain ingredient in the products you use which causes irritation. Unfortunately I can’t tell you what that is. I don’t want to recommend a product and have things get worse for her. I can tell you that that old school “greasing the scalp” thing was something that my mother did on my hair as well. The reality is that it’s just not a good practice. Those heavy greases contain cheap oils like mineral oil and petrolatum that can clog pores and block the hair shaft from absorbing moisture.

      The scalp needs to remain clean if it’s going to remain healthy. Think of the skin on the scalp as you would the skin on your face. Would you slather a thick smelly oil all over your face? Probably not. The scalp should be thought of the same way. When moisturizing the hair, the ends are actually the most important and require the most attention. The scalp produces a natural oil on its own and rarely needs any help. Because our hair is kinky, those natural oils can’t get to the ends as easily or as readily, so that’s why your concentration should be on the ends of her hair.

      Get a spray bottle and mix half aloe vera juice and half water in it. Spritz her scalp with that instead of using a hair grease. Aloe vera juice has natural healing properties and is fantastic for growth.

      Hope that helps! 🙂
