I started this blog to follow my journey into the world of natural beauty care. I have been using natural products when I can for years but now I am making a commitment to use them exclusively.
I am starting my journey with a search for perfect curls. I have tried many products out there but I want to find an all natural product line or mixture of product lines that make my hair the best it can be.
Now this may sound simple but being biracial it is easier said than done.
I have unique hair as many mixed chicks do. I have different types and textures on my head so finding a product that brings out the beauty in all of these differences is a challenge. I have THIN hair and it is kinky/curly so alot of products on the market are TOO heavy but the ones for thinner less kinky curls don’t have enough hold and this leads to FRIZZ.
The reason I am going natural is the beauty industry uses so many chemicals that are just plain not good for us
Main things I am avoiding in my beauty care products are
- Suflates (sodium or ammonium lauryl/laureth/myreth sulfate)
- Parabens (methyl, propyl, ethyl, butyl)
- Petrochemicals/Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH)
And YES for years I straightened my hair chemically and with flat irons. I am tired of the damage and want to celebrate the beauty that is curly hair!
I am hoping through my blogging to share my natural beauty tips , with a thing or two about me (like I’m an ovo nightshade free vegetarian) and my life thrown in there too and I am eager to learn a thing or two from everyone out there who struggles with the same issues as me, striving to be a natural beauty!
