My Natural Hair Journey
Submitted By || Yalon Hutchinson
I made a new styling video: Flexi Rod Set Using Shea Moisture’s Frizz-Free Curl Mousse. I was tired of twist outs and even though my hair is short I knew there was something else I could do.
It turned out great! I hope you like it.

A trifecta of natural beauty products from Vitacost Organic honey for my face, tea and toast. Organic coconut oil for everything head-to-toe (hair, skin, oilpulling, cooking). Aztec Secret bentonite clay, also for everything head-to-toe (it’s AMAZING on hair AND skin!!). Anyone practice oil pulling? I’m trying it out thanks to Hey Fran Hey and @itsolivialane
I feel SUCH a difference in my body since using these products. The toothpaste was my first holistic switch. It’s so good that I forgot to brush my teeth twice last week because my breath was still fresh from the night before. Embarrassing, yes, but if I can’t tell that I didn’t brush my teeth until hours later… That’s some damn good toothpaste.
Second purchase was the soap. I read lots of reviews on this soap and at first I was skeptical on paying so much for it, but my grocery store had the smaller size in stock vs the largest size I found at Walgreens and I saved myself $10. I got tea tree oil scent because E and I have skin conditions that require extra attention (eczema) and I read that tea tree oil is good for healing up skin sores. The soap itself is organic, all natural, and fair trade. The bottle is post consumer recycled product as well. Extra points for Dr. Bronner.
Lastly, coconut oil. I have been wanting to jump on this bandwagon for a good year now and I finally broke down and bought some along with the soap. Holy fuck I smell amazing and my skin feels incredible. I am a little oily, but I think in the morning I’ll be fine. I don’t think I can moisturize more than once a day with it, but at night after a shower feels good so that’s what I’m going to go with.
I like getting fresh and clean with all natural ingredients. I don’t like harsh chemicals. Thank you heyfranhey for inspiring me to make the conversion to holistic health and beauty!
Ahh! This is beyond awesome!!! Thank you for sharing with us <3
I’m working on eating healthier. Especially snacking healthier. I can cut back a lot but when it comes to my sugar craving, that’s when things go haywire.
I found this idea to make Peanut Butter Granola snacks via this link you posted and gave it a try.
Ingredients include granola, dried cranberries, honey, peanut butter, and I decided to throw in some flaxseed as well.
It is SO fulfilling. I eat one, no more than two balls, at a time and it completely takes care of my sweet tooth. Thank you so much!
