Hawaiian Natural Hair & Skincare

Plumeria, one of my favorite flowers and scents

Hawaiian Natural Hair & Skincare

On my birth island, Kaua’i. All of the plant photos I took on Kaua’i.

I was born on Kaua’i, Hawai’i and partly raised on this majestic island on a sugar plantation and then next to Mt. Waialeale. We wore moo moo’s, went barefoot and played and looked for treasures in the forest and swam at Poipu beach. The air was warm and filled with the scent of plumeria, wet moss and ocean sea water.

Here are some of the plants that have been and are currently used for Hawaiian natural hair and skincare.
