Shakara Natural Tips visits: Diva Designs Hair Studio Toronto I don’t use heat to style, period! So when I decided to try Diva Hair Design Studio, I loved the fact that Tanisha was willing to level with me on this! The night before, I washed my hair with black soap and SheaMoisture Raw Shea
About three years ago, I found a lump in my breast and this triggerd a need to find safer alternatives in personal care products, from deodorants to nail polish, shampoos and toothpastes! While it is evident that we cannot control every aspect of our lives, we can control somethings.

We’ve all been there before…you walk into a department store and head for the health and beauty section. You examine a wide variety of cleansing bars and you choose one that seems to match your needs. It usually takes a few tries before you find that one soap that really works for you. Do you ever stop to look at the ingredients of this soap? You are likely to find triclosan, which can disrupt the thyroid hormone and increased exposure can contribute to the development of breast cancer. You will find fragrance, which is usually a safe word for phthalates, a chemical that can cause birth defects and liver damage. There are so many chemicals that are used in nearly all "cleansing bars" sold in stores today.
Most of us look for permanent solutions to stretchmark’s, scars, acne, uneven skin tones and aging. Bio oil promises us answers. To say that I have tried this product and not seen good results would be lying. Yet, I have seen the same results (if not better) with 100% Pure Unrefined (Grade A, Fairtrade certified) Shea butter. Here’s the deal…if you are looking for a drive through breakthrough, Bio oil works. At least it did for me. However, you might want to consider the long-term side effects; which could be negative.
Have you ever used Eco styler gel? Numerous YouTube tutorials on natural hair recommend Eco styler gel. Why not? It offers maximum hold; contains 100% Olive oil and, has no alcohol! Thus, I decided to give this one a try. As you all know [if you follow my blog] I always read ingredients. To my surprise, this one raised many flags. Nonetheless I bought a jar for $3.99 [CDN] and left the store. Rule of thumb #1, if you can’t eat it don’t put it on your skin. Upon getting home I compared my jar of Kinky Curly custard gel to ECO styler gel. Kinky Curly custard’s ingredients are listed as follows:
Botanical fusion of water, horsetail, chamomile, nettle and marshmallow, organic aloe vera juice, agave nectar extract, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin e), pectin, citric acid, potassium sorbate and natural fragrance.
