Why did you: Became tired of going to the salon and sitting long hours wasting time to get my hair done and listening to gossip.
What products do you use: Water, oils (olive, coconut, jojoba, tonka, argan) and any multipurpose ingredient I could find in my mother’s kitchen or garden.

Advice to other naturalistas: Listen to your hair and don’t give up on your journey.
