A Legendary Evening: A Shea Moisture Review by Sonia Kang | November 27 2017, 0 Comments
I received an email from Ford Motor Company, which has a long history of recognizing amazing women in our society, saying I was chosen as this year's Mujeres Legendarias (Legendary Women) which honors women in the community that have personified Ford's pillars: Smart, Green, Quality and Safety.
Each year Ford selects four women in New York, Miami, Dallas, Houston and Los Angeles that have made true differences in their communities and I was one of them!!
The email reads: "this year, for your spirit, enthusiasm and leadership in the Latina community, YOU have been selected as one of our 2017 LA Mujeres Legendarias."
Get out of here! I was floored.
I get up each day trying to be better than yesterday and I work hard in the multicultural community but I didn't expect this.
I couldn't believe someone like Ford was going to honor me for something I feel is my life's mission which is to amplify the voice of the multicultural community.
But they did and I was excited to be chosen and recognized.
I started by giving my hair a pep talk because y'all know how temperamental hair can be so I wanted mine to be on it's best behavior.
I loved the coconut smell and ease of application. As I sprayed I scrunch up my hair to make sure I got it all covered. Nothing worse than dry spots.
After the spray was the Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie. I rubbed it on both hands and coated my curls being sure to grab strands and curl the hair while applying the cream.
After a couple of minutes of setting, it's time to diffuse my hair upside down.
I keep the diffuser pushing up the curls toward my scalp as it dries which helps give my curl some spring.
Once dry, I shake it out a bit and pick it out if needed. I never know where the part is going to be. It's always a surprise!
When the hair gods shine down on you, all is right with the world. Am I right?
You have more pep to your step and your confidence is sky high.
Well that's exactly how I felt this day going into the Ford Mujeres Legendarias event.
I felt so good about myself that I was able to just be in the moment and take in the evening with family, friends and new acquaintances.
When you feel good about yourself, you aren't self-conscious about your looks and you can focus on sharing your work and passion with others which is exactly what I did.
Thank you to Shea Moisture for their work in the multicultural community and for providing products our community of "curlfriends" are looking for.
Before bed and while still on cloud 9 from the evening, it was time to remove my makeup and hit the sheets. I used Shea Moisture African Black Soap Clarifying Facial Wipes. It took off all my makeup and left my face feeling squeaky clean.
