Deep Conditioning is Essential to Natural Hair Care

Deep conditioning should be apart of your weekly natural hair care regimen mainly because it adds moisture to our hair, which helps our hair maintain elasticity, prevents breakage and restores strength.

Product Review: EDEN BodyWorks

Its Product Review Time!

Hello! I was recently product hunting in Sally Beauty for something new to try and stumbled upon the EDEN Bodyworks Coconut product line. I was instantly intrigued because the product line claimed to be all natural. So I decided to give them a try!  I have given you a full review of the two products I purchased. Check out my thoughts below..

EDEN BodyWorks™ provides natural products that integrate wellness and beauty inspired by nature to restore and maintain the hair and body’s original design.

The three brands offered:
Peppermint Tea Tree
All Natural Peppermint Tea Tree products treat scalp problems and remove all traces of dirt and oil buildup to create a healthy environment for hair to grow. You’ll love the tingle!
Jojoba Monoi
Our All Natural Jojoba Monoi products replenish and restore moisture to dry and brittle hair. Experience less breakage and improve hair’s elasticity with extended use. By balancing the hair’s natural oils, our Jojoba Monoi products protect against moisture loss and improve the condition of damaged hair.
Coconut Shea
Our All Natural Coconut Shea collection was developed to infuse and add moisture. Coconut Oil helps improve hair strength. Combined with Shea Butter, this collection will leave hair more manageable, strong, and nourished.

I am reviewing the EDEN BodyWorks Coconut Shea All Natural leave In Conditioner and EDEN BodyWorks Coconut Shea Pudding Soufflé.

How I used it on my hair and how it reacted to the product.
I used the leave-in conditioner to moisturize my hair and I haven’t stopped using it!! I absolutely love this product. It makes my hair soft to the touch and it seems as though the tangles melt away as soon as I apply it. The leave-in conditioner is my new staple product. I am so glad I tried it.

The All Natural Soufflé worked wonders for my hair. I have only used it for twist outs so far but It gives me GREAT definition each time. My hair also feels very soft and moisturized when I am taking down the twists. I have gotten so many compliments.

This product is definitely my new go to when I want defined and fabulous hair. The two products work together to produce great results for me each time!

What’s the rate out of 10. Would I purchase or use again?
I rate both products a 10/10. I will definitely use and purchase these products again – as I said, my new staple products! I thought the price was very reasonable for the results I received.  I also like that it is sold in stores, like WalMart and Sally Beauty,  which makes it very convenient to pick up.

Did I mentioned I LOVE THESE PRODUCTS?! 🙂

See my results! I have used it for about three weeks now.

Relaxers vs. Fibriods

I found a couple of interesting articles about the link between relaxers and fibroids from BlackDoctors.org and Ynaija.com.

Check out the links below! >>>

http://blackdoctor.org/2825/do-relaxers-cause-fibroids/

http://www.ynaija.com/new-study-links-hair-relaxers-to-fibroid-tumours-in-women/

I never associated the two but after reading the article I think the scientific findings make sense. The one thing I know for sure is that reading articles like this continues to support my decision to remain natural.

What’s your opinion  of relaxers? Please share in the comment section below.

As always, If you have any question, concerns and/or comments please contact me healthyhairhabits@gmail.com
