I love this look & tutorial, but layered hair makes braids an impossibility. Anyone have any tips for this?

Post image for The Key To Going All Natural

A year or two ago, if you were to look at my beauty cabinet, you’d have probably been dumbfounded by the overwhelming amount of chemical-filled products in there. Lotions and cleansers and self tanners and hair serums and deep conditioners and astringents… I could go on forever. You see, I’ve always been a lover of beauty products — I still am — but I haven’t always been such a huge advocate for natural beauty.Read More

Post image for The Healing Power Of Olive Leaf

We’re all well aware of the oil produced by olive fruits and all of the health and beauty benefits it has — it’s a healthy fat that’s believed to help prevent obesity, heart disease, and cancer to name a few, and it does wonders in the world of moisturizing skin and hair. You can even use it in oil pulling to detoxify your body. But there’s something else the olive plant has to offer — something huge — and it’s all about the leaf.Read More

Post image for The New Healer, African Black Soap

This guest post comes from our contributor FP Naomi.Read More

I was gifted ABS as a child by my neighbor. She claimed that she felt terrible as she always saw me stanidng scratching my skin. My neighbor is a gift sent from the most High- the soap healed my skin. 14 years later, i am reunited with ABS as I moved abroad at 13 I was unaware of where to find. Thank GOODNESS for the internet aye? I love this soap, it really accelerates the healing process of my eczema prone skin. I recommend this soap to ANY and EVERYONE. I too, buy the TRADITIONAL ABS that is brown in colour and quite crumbling.
Samara -Oct 27, 2015, 12:21PM
I love using African Black Soap. However, the soap pictured above is not authentic black soap. Black soap has a brownish color; it is not black. Try Alaffia. It is sold in health food stores and Target.

Post image for Honey Is The New Shampoo: The Conclusion

I haven’t washed my hair with conventional shampoo and conditioner for almost one full month — and this will be my last week reporting on it. Why? Did I give up? Am I switching back to the (unnatural) way things used to be?Read More

Lindsey -Feb 11, 2016, 6:29PM
Also- did you dilute your castile soap? Ive heard some people do a "1 tbl to 2 cups water"?
Lindsey -Feb 11, 2016, 6:24PM
Hey there! So I just wanted to clarify (as Im going to try your combination!) you would use castile soap and avocado oil every day unless you felt it didnt need it, correct? Im pertrified to not "wash" my hair everyday so I just wanted to clarify before I start and then dont follow it correctly and THEN give up. Thanks!!

Post image for DIY Natural Moisturizing Skin And Hair Mist

If you live in a part of the world where winters are very dry, I totally feel you. Dry air has a tendency of sucking the moisture out of everything it comes in contact with — including our skin and hair.

Post image for Honey Is The New Shampoo: Week 3

I’m going on 3 weeks of washing my hair with natural substances (no commercial shampoo or conditioner!). I’ve used mainly honey with a couple tries of clay and apple cider vinegar… and this week I started something else. Read More

I washed my hair with baking soda and it destroyed my hair. Its been thinning for 8 months and has never stopped. I also get frequent almost buzzed hair cuts every 2-3 weeks.
AshleyOO -May 09, 2015, 9:34PM
After years of frizz, a friend mentioned no poo and I was grossed out. Several months later, life got really busy and there was little time to shower, so hair washing was out! After 2 weeks, my hair looked better than ever! Then I researched no poo and tried the baking soda wash, but it was super itchy. Now 1x a week, I brush with a boar bristle brush while watching a movie, comb with a wide tooth comb in the shower then air dry. Now my hair looks like beautiful mermaid hair! The boar brush distributes the hairs oil to the ends which makes my long lions mane less tangled and easy to manage. The only part of hair condiments I miss was the smell, so I mixed 1oz of water per 1 drop of essential oil in a spray bottle and mist 2-3 spritz every other day.

In my opinion MAC Russian Red is very universal is a true red, not blueish, not pinkish or magenta-ish and not orange, just red. When in doubt go with Russian Red
Shelley -Jan 29, 2014, 10:53PM
Such a fun video! Thanks to all those who commented above me for the great tips re. the importance of skin tone. I'm still a little afraid of red, but I might be tempted to give it a try!
