Creme of Nature - Straight from Eden

Having healthy hair requires a well balanced diet, a consistent hair regimen and of course the hair products.  Right? And most of us curly girls can understand the #struggle. The Straight from Eden line by Creme of Nature contains olive oil, coconut oil and avocado oil - perfect for those with all hair textures - and is all about healthy hair/lifestyle which seems to be on the same thinking as your transition so we felt a strong synergy. The line works for girls who are natural, texlaxed or relaxed.

The Straight from Eden line comes with four hair maintenance products that all contain coconut, avocado and olive oils essential for naturally curly and permanently straightened hair.  

These products include:

Creme of Nature from Eden Natural-Oil Infused Hydrating Shampoo - a sulfate-free gentle cleanser for all hair types to cleanse, moisturize and detangle hair.

Creme of Nature from Eden Natural-Oil Infused Hydrating Conditioner - a luxurious conditioner that deeply moisturizes and strengths hair.  This sulfate-free conditioner also contains shea butter and safflower oil for extra protection and can be used as a weekly conditioner or part of a steam treatment.

Creme of Nature from Eden Natural-Oil Infused Hydrating Leave-in Conditioner- detangles, conditions and protects the hair for blow-dry and wet-set styles.  The fine mist nozzle provides even product distribution.

Creme of Nature from Eden Natural Oil-infused Repairing Oil- a light rich oil to help repair hair, control frizz and protect against heat damage using coconut, avocado and olive oils.  Can be used on dry or wet hair when styling or add to conditioner for an extra boost of moisture during steam treatments.

And for the ladies that like to permanently straighten their hair, Creme of Nature Straight from Eden Natural-Oil Infused Relaxer has a unique dual-phase technology that is one part naturally derived straightener and one part chemical activator. Coconut oil adds protection to the hair, avocado oil helps to fortify hair and olive oil replenishes hair during the straightening process. The system comes in two phases, allowing the user to mix it at home to maintain the freshness of the oils for healthier straight hair.

The great thing about these products are that they retail from $5.99 - $9.99 which is extremely affordable!  They are located at your local Walmart, Walgreens and select beauty supply stores nationwide and for my online shoppers, check out: www.cremeofnature.com

#iamlettingGO NYC Video Screening Recap

I am reallllly excited to share these pictures with you from my #iamlettingGO video screening sponsored by Crème of Nature and Dark and Lovely at Pulse Karaoke Lounge located in the heart of NYC!!!!  

Ok so to bring you up to speed, if you don’t follow me on Instagram, I started a campaign called #iamlettingGO after the realization that so many people were going through life transitions.  It was a platform for people to share their beautiful struggles and anything they were letting go of in order to move forward with any aspirations they've given up on.  

Within a month, over 500 participated, shared and encouraged each other not to give up.  I was shocked at the response! So I felt it was only right to share my personal story (which I did through video) about my transition which included shaving off my signature shoulder length curls. But more than anything I wanted to meet everyone in person !
