Happy new month!
its the second half if the year already, and some great things are happening. Its been a while i posted here, reason is that i have been nurturing my new found passion- Making Natural Cosmetics.
When it comes to the area of my skin, hair and face, i am very particular about what i use, the product, the make, and what the product is made of. My hair has been free from relaxer for over 2years, which in other word mean i now have natural hair. I did not mean to transition to natural hair but then i realised that i used super hair relaxer on my hair just because i wanted my hair permed and straight to its best. What i did not realise is that this has damaged my hair and stoppeed it growing healthy. I realised that my hair was indeed soft, and even if i wanted to perm it/straighten with relaxer, i should have used the one for kids or the regular one.
Now my hair is fuller, thicker and longer, for the first time since 2000 when i started growing my hair! imagine 12 good years (covering my face). I wanted to protect this new found growth of mine with all caution, so i decided to look for products without chemicals that i can use on natural hair and what i found was amazing. There was a whole world of Naturalists (women with natural hair ) and i was excited to find that people still rocked their natural locks without care of straightening it for easy combing or braiding. Then i said to myself, there must be a way to use non chemical creams for my skin too because i have a very sensitive skin on my face.
In summary, i researched, found and have attended a course on making cosmetics without chemicals. i have attached some pictures of my own products that i learnt at the course and made myself at home, in my own kitchen.
Strawberry lip balm, Plum Soap, Strawberry Soap, Green Tea Soap- free from sls/sles, paraben. handmade with love.
Rosemary and Tea Tree shampoo
More to come from me, and i shall be posting them. I will be putting up some simple facials and spa products you can make from the comfort of your home, tailored to meet your skin needs, hair products too.
