Eden Body Works

I purchased the EdenBody Works Jojoba Monoi line. I was excited, I read all the raving reviews, and I knew this was going to be a staple for me!

I used the jojoba monoi Conditioner as a cowash, then I used the shampoo. The shampoo cleansed my hair very well, it felt CLEAN, not stripped, not dry, but light and clean.

 Then I used the Conditioner as a rinse out. I cold rinsed my hair and then I sectioned my hair and applied the Eden Body Works Jojoba Monoi Deep Conditioner. I put a plastic cap on and went to bed. I rinsed my hair out later that night around 11 pm or 12 am I applied the Jojoba Monoi Hair Milk, by first sectioning my hair into four's. I used smaller sections and applied the hair milk to the smaller sections, as I applied I used my denman brush to distribute the hair milk and begun twisting my hair.

I applied some Pure Organic coconut oil to my palms and ran my hands through my twist. put my satin tie on and went to bed.

The following day the twist were firm and damp. I waited until my entire head was done air drying and I unraveled the twist...I did not like the results.

*I could only find this one photo of the after results* I was not pleased...

I did use the conditioner again, I honestly like the conditioner a lot, the deep conditioner is ALL natural,so even though it does not do anything new or "BOOM" I will keep it in my product supplies. The Jojoba Monoi Hair milk I am not fond of and will not buy again, I purchased 2, so I will give that to someone. I do like the shampoo as a CLEANSER.

I will repurchase the shampoo when I run out and the conditioner and DEEP conditioner, as well.

I am going to use the Eden Body works a third time including the hair milk but without the use of coconut oil, I will attempt with different oils as a sealer. I have some Sweet Almond oil and Grapeseed oil I will try individually next time.

I know every product is not for every curly head, so I will give myself a few attempts at the product to truly see its full potential. If it is not for me then that is fine with me!

TLC...beau cheveux(beautiful hair-french)

Today i unraveled my twist moisture my hair with Cantu leave in treatment, added pure unrefined Shea Butter to my fingers and began unraveling. I also moistened my hair with water,light olive oil and picked my hair. Adding more leave in treatment and spray. Lastly, when the hair was all picked, i mix 3pumps of Cantu leave in treatment with 100% pure Jojoba oil in hand and applied to my picked hair. I wet the hair with my spray(light olive oil &water). I picked through my hair holding firmly by the middle of my hair shaft, easily gliding the pick.
After coating my entire head, i  put a plastic cap on and took my satin head tie and tied it around the bottom of the plastic cap.
Lastly, i covered my entire head with a head scarf.
Will style either tonight or morning...big chunky twist!
I am in love with my natural hair and all the capabilities.

Product Junkie!

I have forever and always loved to do hair. I love shampooing, conditioning, and styling hair. When I would apply relaxers to my hair I would also buy seperat products (deep treatments) to hopefully keep my hair healthy. I would love to use carrot oil, castor oil, or tea tree oil. Before I had knowledge of the Natural hair community I was embarking on a Healthy Hair Journey.

Years later I am still interested in products for healthier hair! But, now I have resources (naturallycurly.com, curlynikki.com, and more)! I am going to post pictures of my 2 shelves full of hair care products. I have a shampoo and rinse-out shelf and a moisturizing, Leave-in, and oils shelf. I still NEED more space, though. I truly love products. And if the packaging is appealing and if the product has more natural ingredients and organic ingredients I am going to definitely but it!

A few of  MY staple products are :

SheaMoisture: Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo
                        Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner ( can be used as a leave-in, deep conditioner, or rinse out)
                        Coconut & Hibiscus Curl &Style Hair Milk
                        Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie

Leave-In: Parvenu Leave In conditioner for Extra Dry Hair ( grown to love this)!  
Carol's Daughter:
 Tui Leave -In conditioner (great detangler)
Hair Balm
Mimosa Hair Honey
Healthy Hair Butter (seal, moisturizer, adds sheen and softness)
Marguerite's Magic

Tropic Isle Jamaican Castor Oil-Pure Coconut oil
Wonder Six Oil
Raw Shea Butter
Castor Oil
