On Saturday I revealed my new red ammonia free hair color, so now let’s talk styling for that kinky curly 3c head of mine. Hair Cleansing & Conditioning Routine: Wash kinky curly hair with EO Rose and Chamomile Shampoo (for color treated hair) or Shea Radiance Herbal Hair Shampoo (just at scalp) and rinse. Condition kinky curl hair with Acure Organics Lemongrass Conditioner. (Note: Shampoo and condition kinky curly hair once a week and condition only on days when you want brand new curls throughout the week.) Gently comb conditioner... Read The Rest →
Two weeks ago, Amy Gabrielson of Organic Hail Salon DFW in Dallas, TX (who also goes between Organic Hair Salon & Nail Spa in Nantucket Island, MA) did my ammonia free red hair color using Organic Color Systems. We stayed within the copper bronze family and I absolutely love how the color turned out! My hair both looks and feels great…soft, hydrated and full of body. Plus, the color is still holding up quite nicely after a few weeks. So here’s the deal on Organic Color Systems…it’s NOT an all organic... Read The Rest →

On Saturday, I attended the Natural World for Natural Girls hair event in Dallas, TX as one of the panel members for a discussion on “Learning to love and embrace the kinks.” It’s always a beautiful sight for me to see women embracing their natural hair texture and wanting to learn more about how they can better take care of it. Here’s some of the hair that had me talking and you can view the rest out on our facebook page. Love your hair, love yourself!

Tata Harper’s Repairative Moisturizer is an ultra-hydrating natural face moisturizer that leaves my skin looking and feeling supple with a fresh healthy glow. It has a lovely light floral scent and is ideal for dehydrated skin, winter months or dry climates. My skin isn’t overly dry but I’ve found that when I do need a little more moisture on my face, a pea-size amount works best. Most facial moisturizers for dry/mature skin usually result in a pimple or two by the end of the day on my very blemish-prone face... Read The Rest →
