Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.
Q:Hello Fran, I've been doing the oil cleansing for about a week and I like it so far. But what do you use to cleanse your face after an intense workout? Should oil cleansing be done following exercise? Thanks!
Natural Hair || How My Hair Growth Took Off When I Started Using Natural, Raw Ingredients
I remember watching Kimmaytube on YouTube as she was discussing the pH balance of hair and how it is important to use products that are close to the same ph as our curly hair which is between 4.5 and 5.5. Using hair products that are similar in pH cause the cuticle to remain closed, thus reducing frizz, increasing shine and softness. As soon as I heard this, I was scouring British Curlies Website, (back then this was the only place us UK naturals could get US products from) for the Ph balanced hair products.
The only pH balanced products I found during that time were from the Komaza Care product line. So, with my uncontrollable product junkie self, I purchased the shampoo, conditioner, leave-in, moisturizer and styler from the Califa Care line which is for thick kinky hair. I wasn’t playing!
