Giveaway Alert: Miss Jessie's Mother's Day Special

Tags:
Mother's prepare us for many lessons in life-love, financial, beauty...some we keep, some we pass on.

Miss Jessie's founders, Titi and Miko were inspired to create their booming line of hair care line based on beauty lessons passed down from their grandmother,
Miss Jessie.

I have also been fortunate to learn many beauty secrets from my mother. Many that I have proudly passed on to my daughters.

In celebration of mothers and beauty, UrbanCurlz and Miss Jessie's have teamed up to for an awesome contest. We are giving away 5 Value Packs to UrbanCurlz readers. No Purchase Necessary. So ladies, the only thing you have to do is share the best beauty lesson(s) that you have learned from your mother, grandmother, or even lessons that you have passed down to your own children-No later than May 11, 2008. I will select 5 of the best entries and announce the winners on May 12, 2008.

To kick it off, I will share one of my mother's best tips-Using a toothbrush to smooth my edges. I can't count the times when someone walked into my bathroom and screamed because they thought I used it for my teeth. But I have been doing this my whole life and as a result, have some of the smoothest edges on the block. LOL!

The best beauty tip my grandmother gave me was showing me how to get blackheads out my nose with a hot wet towel. Gross! but I hate them on my nose. She always told me to Moisturize my body and hair before I go to bed.


The best one overall I've found is to avoid heat as much as possible. It's ok to roller set once a week, but daily heat is murder on the hair.

The best advice my mother has given me is to live boldly by being happy with myself and never being afraid to take chances in my life. Her philosophy is, "if you are happy with you and the choices you make for yourself", the rest of life will fall into place.


The best beauty tips that my mother ever gave me is to drink plenty of water, rub vaseline on my hands and feet every night and sleep in white cotton socks (I tell you that works I have the softest skin.) And above all else always think postively and thank and praise God daily.


Wash your face before going to bed.
Grandma also said to make sure your bra & panty match cause you never know when you'll be in an accident.

My grandmother used to keep her nail polish in the "Frigidaire"... At the time I couldn't figure out why (I was a child) but as I got older I realized it helps keep polish "as new" and helps prevent those annoying little bubbles from appearing.


My mother gave me the beauty of tip of no matter what the circumstance is tie your hair up at night time. It protects the hair, the chances of breakage or slim and a woman should always find time to take care of herself from head to toe.


The best beauty advice my mother taught me is to learn how to take care of myself. So I've always been the type of person who could do my own hair (and everyone else's), french mani/pedi, and wax, etc. Although I still indulge in services of others, if it came down to it, I can do all of these things just as good as any professional.

Never use a disposable razor more than once. This prevents dark marks from forming under the armpit.

My mother always told me that inner beauty surpasses outer beauty.


My grandmother told me that the kitchen holds more beauty products than any cosmetic counter. It was from her, I first learned about the many beauty benefits of olive oil, coconut oil, mayo, eggs...and even CRISCO (that's for you Urbancurlz) :)

Btw, Crisco is a great skin moisturizer.


the best beauty tip my mother gave me was to keep my hair game on point because like a bed room if that bed is made and made well it will make the whole room look amazing!


The best beauty tip I receivied was to always stay hydrated! Drink lots of water. Water is good for your health! :) Thanks!!


This best beauty tip I got from my grandmother is to always wash my face! I have sensitive skin, so I wash with a gentile cleanser.


The very best beauty tip my mom gave me was to work every style, every look like you know it looks good. Even if you don't believe it, you're confidence in your unique look will convince people that your style is awesome. She is seriously the woman who can convince you a pizza is the latest fashion in headwear. Yep, so confidence (real or faked) is the best tip/accessory ever.


The best beauty advice my mother ever gave me is to eat right and exercise NOW. Don't wait until you're old to try to get in shape. Regardless of how busy life has gotten, my mother finds time to exercise. She eats carefully and wisely and is more passionate about it as she gets older. She goes to the gym, or runs around the neighborhood, or does exercise videos. It's not about being a size 2, Mommy is far from that. It's about being healthy so that you can enjoy life. What a bummer to live long and then to be sick or weak. Mom says, that since our family members tend to live for 9 or more decades(Grandma lived to be 93 and no one knew great grandma's age -- she was that old) it is important, and a duty to yourself, to do all that's in our power to be fit and healthy.


My mother has naturally curly hair...I envied it as a child- my hair has a tighter curl that would frustrate me as I attempted to get it to do what it I wanted it to. One day I was literally in tears in the bathroom with my golden hot curlers trying to blend my hair with the weave...you know how we do...she came in, looked at me and said, "just embrace YOUR curl girl" and walked out the bathroom. I decided that day to do the big chop...wore lovely dreadlocks for 9 years and recently cut the locs and sport a curly fro that is FIERCE! I have indeed embraced MY curl! Thanks mom!!
