It is estimated that 65 percent of women who dye die their hair do so at home. (1) Many at home colouring kits have a high concentration of chemicals, which can put your curls at risk.
Using Henna means choosing a risk free alternative to chemical dyes because Henna…is a plant. Unlike most synthetic dye’s dies; 100% Body Art Quality [BAQ] Henna does not damage hair, it can be safely incorporated into any hair care regimen, plus it can be done as often as you desire!
My job enables me to work with women-owned co-operatives and female producers in Africa. Recently I received a sample of 100% pure [chemical free] Rhassoul clay from Morocco. More times than I can count, I’ve watched many of our customers buy Rhassoul for skin care purposes…but what I’ve found very intriguing is when some buy it solely to Shampoo with!
So, I decided to give it a try…
Personally, I believe that nature has given us everything. But marketing and advertising convinces us otherwise.
Simple solutions in your kitchen
If I could credit the start of my natural hair journey to anyone, it will have to be my husband and sister. Today I’ll be sharing a recipe I learned from my sister, which I’ve altered to suit my hair. I can’t say enough about making your own recipes, for one it’s cheaper, another reason is the freedom and liberty to experiment with stuff!
For this recipe, be prepared for a messy sink or bathtub! But the results…are SOworth it.
