I love the Moroccan oil and conditioner tip! I use the M.Oil with Mixed Chicks leave-in conditioner and a dab of their hair silk late in the day. I get Moroccan oil from my salon and Mixed Chicks ( from Target or Beauty Supply.

JESSICURL products are the BOMB! I don't use shampoo (except for a 4-6 week event). I need the heavier Too Shea conditioner in the shower and deep conditioner every week or two (a pre-shower treatment). I do the tee-shirt wrap and style with Rockin' Ringlets and Confident Coils mixed together, dried part way, then gather it up scrunch-like in a hair-tie (made from stocking waistbands, so no,tangles or tugging) . I leave my hair tied up until just before going into myfirstnappointment of the day. "If you can't fix it, feature it" inspires my hair style model - if I can't tame it, set it free! Thank you and for tutorials, tips and to,order products for my curls.

I'll bet a drop or two of lavender oil and peppermint oil would feel fantastic in this.

The shift is subtle, until we’re suddenly acutely aware: Crumpled leaves litter the ground, school buses begin their early morning rumble, and apples, squash, and dark leafy greens start their farmer’s market takeover.Read More

I have been taking DE for about 3 weeks now, I am almost 50. I have had serious constipation problems due to the hydrocodone I take daily since I have had 2 back fusions. I even ended up in the ER because my constipation was so bad, I was throwing up. I take 1 heaping tablespoon every morning with water or coffee (about 8 ounces of liquid) I am having bowel movements every morning, and my energy has increased like crazy. I did have some cramping one evening, but it wasn't unbearable. Just enough to annoy me. I take one dose of Miralax in the evening too and it is working like a charm. My hair is growing very fast, but my nails are still nasty. Probably because I had my nails done for years, so my nails are very weak now. I definately recommend this product.

I have taken a tablespoon for a week or so in the past. I stopped for awhile because I did feel like it constipated me a bit. The answer to that is probably to cut down the amount and drink much more water, so I've started again for the past two days. The number one thing that DE has shown it does for me right away is to give me a huge energy boost and the giggles. Seriously. I cannot figure out what it is doing that causes me to be so uplifted and happy while taking it- the feeling is so big that it almost freaks me out. I am also having my son take a couple of drinks of my water/DE drink because I heard that it may help with asthma/allergies. This time I am going to keep on it for awhile and see if I notice any other reactions.

it seems very obvious to iron with a flat iron but I'd never thought about it, it's brilliant!

Coconut oil is my #1 go to; It's my body moisturizer, my facial moisturizer, my makeup remover (seriously! it works wonders!).... I don't even wear any foundation or powder makeup anymore, and I get compliments on my skin all the time. It's nature's miracle! <3 dani

Post image for 3 Ingredient Natural Hair Detangler

I have very long hair, and I suffer from tangled locks a lot more than not. But no matter what length your hair is, chances are you often encounter annoying tangles. Taking a brush to them sometimes won’t even do the trick, so that’s when you bring in a reinforcement– hair detangler.Read More

And make sure its sustainable Palm oil! For more info check out the Oranguran Project. All good being natural.. But look where you are getting your ingredients. :) thanks
Syl -Feb 22, 2015, 11:15AM
Don't normally post, but this made me a little angry. Tried it, spent $ on good ingredients, didn't work at all! Maybe too much water in your recipe? I may try it straight, without water; perhaps my hair is just very dry :(. Truly felt just as dry and tangly after applying, If not more!

Post image for Whipped Coconut Oil For Hair And Skin

We talk a lot about oils here on the Free People blog, and for good reason – they’re amazing for both your external and internal health. Personally, I’m a fan of coconut oil: I cook with it, slather it on my skin, rub it into the ends of my hair, and even add it to my coffee and tea.Read More

Leah -Jul 01, 2015, 4:45PM
Yes! You're probably using wayy too much coconut oil in your hair. I use about a pin head amount. A tiny tiny bit and scrunch it through my wet hair and its amazing!
em -Sep 19, 2014, 12:43AM
I don't know one person who actually likes coconut oil in their hair…. it leaves grease spots every time i've tried but if anyone knows how to prevent this i would loooove to know!!!
