Fall Natural Hair Care Tips

As we ease into Fall, the days get shorter, the air crisper, and we start to seek out more comfort whether it is from our Pumpkin Spice Lattes, a warm baked muffin, or a cozy sweater. While the summer days may be gone, their effects on our hair still remain- from the increased time outside exposing our strands to strong UV rays of the sun, swimming in chlorinated pools, those “sun-kissed” highlights you got, and more. Your hair could also use some comfort as you start to settle in before winter.

Here are some fall natural hair care tips to revive your tresses just in time for sweater-weather.…


Formulating Hair Care Products

Straightening and Smoothing Hair Naturally

Did you know there are plant based ingredients that can help to straighten and smooth the hair naturally? Applying a serum with straightening and smoothing properties to damp hair prior to drying can do wonders. Most hair serums on the market are made with dimethicone. Dimethicone is not approved as a natural ingredient. It is hard to replicate that same silky soft feel dimethicone imparts in hair serums with plant based ingredients. The serum formula I formulated, Straightening & Smoothing Styling Serum is packed with all kinds of hair nutrients and very similar to serums with dimethicone.…
