Methods of a Beauty Queen

In an interview with the hip hop culture and fashion magazine known as Vibe, Brooke was asked to reveal some of her beauty secrets to their readers. Since the magazine caters to African American women, they wanted Brooke to talk about her tips and give some insight to how she maintains her appearance.

She was asked how a girl could grow long and healthy hair, “I believe in natural healing and supplements. I try to drink at least a gallon of water a day, and I eat a balanced, home-cooked diet. I know that diet and lifestyle definitely effect not only the inside of your body but the outside as well. Keeping as much heat out of your hair whenever possible is a big plus. Even a blow dryer is damaging. At least twice a month, I use products out of the kitchen to deep condition my hair. It's just a simple mixture of one cup of room temperature mayonnaise, a half cup of olive oil and three egg yolks. Try it! You may have to play around with the measurements depending on the length and thickness of your hair of course.”

On her social media platforms, she often advocates the teachings and routine of a man named Dr. Sebi. Dr. Sebi has been a controversial figure on the internet because some people feel that his natural diet can help people fight off cancer while others feel that his methods belong to a quack doctor. Brooke was asked to explain her admiration of him, “Dr. Sebi is a world renowned healer who has an office here in LA. His herbal and mineral remedies are all-natural, and my friends, family, and I have sworn by them for years. I regularly use the Viento, Green Food, and Seamoss tea.”

Brooke is not lazy at all, she works hard to keep her figure looking great, “I try my best to stay active and keep my workouts fun. In LA, we have hiking trails that I walk or run a few times a week. When I can't make it out, I do simple sets of squats, push-ups and crunches. I keep a jump rope in my suitcase, so I have no excuse when I have to travel. I'm also a full-time mother of 3 so running around behind them burns plenty of calories.”

Brooke has worked for and as a model. She was also the owner of the Phat and Juicy Burger franchise as well as a hair Salon. She later became the founder of the brand known as My Life Cleanse. She is believed to have undergone some plastic surgeries to enhance her body and appearance.
