    I have used every expensive lotion for the face from Kinerase to Clarins but the Made from Earth Vitamin Moisturizer really is the best. It has the crucial ingredients, collagen and elastin and really replenish my skin and make it look and feel like I am 20s again (I am 41). The scent is also very light and very pleasant as I am trying to avoid heavy, perfume laden creams and lotions.

    Hi, I am a transitioning from permed hair to natural. I have been permed for about 16 years of my life. Now that I have been going natural, my hair is becoming shorter, especially in the back. It seems my hair or permed hair is breaking off. My hair is also hard to comb – its very thick as well. I truly need help. What are some ways to make my hair more softer and easier to comb and what are some methods of combing other than using an actual comb?

    • Nicole Archie says:

      Is your hair hanging freely when you wear wool scarves and clothes ? That could be the problem, your hair is catching on to certain clothing and breaking off

  3. My fave is the Eden Body Works Jojoba Monoi deep conditioner. Its my staple.

  4. I am happy that I have found this page, as I have been in transition since 2011 but I have been using ORS products for a while. My hair is all natural now and it is not breaking as much now. I now want to stay natural so I want to try new products. The problem I have now is, the middle part of my hair is shorter than the rest and my hairline breaks, Any suggestions please.

    • Hi sira, for your edges before you go to bed do a flat twist or Cornrow.you can also try some styles with a flat twist or cornrow in front as well.for the center that’s shorter,you may be pulling it tightly in a ponytail.hope I helped.be blessed.

    OK so I’ve been on a mission with my hair for the past year…. when i was younger my hair was long and curly but then i started to color my hair n blow dry it every day flat ironing my hair almost every week…in the beginning of last year i noticed my hair was thin and it did not grow past shoulder length its been 1 year and i have cut down the heat a lot! now my problem is how can i give my hair more volume?? and most important how do i get my curls back!?!?!?!?! and how do i make it grow?!?! I’ve tried hairfinity it doesnt work I’ve tried olive oil and its not working i get so depressed to see my hair like this that i just put it in a bun n that its :( PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • use egg oil or egg yolk to apply on your scalp of head. take zinc, iron and vitamen E suppliments but ask your dr first. i took it myself and got my hair back with natural curls. it will take you 6 to 12 moths to get healthy hair and scalp. also try using clear shampoo without conditioner. you can use conditioner separately.

      • I have been taking biotin plus doing hot oil treatments. I use caster, almond and olive oil mix! My hair is full and very curly! I shampoo it once a month but co-wash every 3-4 days a week! I recently did a protein treatment and my hair is loving it! Try and see if this works for you!

      • Michellei Vaz says:

        What is the name of the protein treatment u used?

    hey can anyone shoot me some tips im a guy I want long hair and im starting from a buzz cut

  8. I tried the Shea Moisture Deep Conditioner listed in this article. I wish it would have worked, but my hair didn’t care for it at all and I had to throw the jar away only after using it two times. I did purchase the Eden Jojoba brand deep conditioner and I’m anxious to see the results when I finally do use it.

    • Jennifer says:

      Swap products with a naturalista friend. ;-)

    • Mary Welch says:

      Could you have retuned it to the store? I take back anything doesn’t work.

    • I did the same with the Shea moisture. I returned to the store. Edens the best!

      • I agree, Shea moisture was returned! It just did not moisturize my hair at all, my hair felt drier than before I conditioned it!

      • I just make sure that I cold wash my hair every two weeks,and put olive oil on my scalp. In addition, to deep conditioning it every two weeks! It make my hair so soft and manageable!!

    • Cynthia adams says:

      For me shea butter does nothing for my 4c hair so I had to use olive oil for a hot treatment and then rinse that out, and I did not blow dry it because it would make heat damage. So I make sure that i put olive oil on my hair everyday because it is so dry and brittle if I don’t do it. I am so frustrated with my hair ! I just put a wig on and call it a day for the winter months ! And when I call to ask a salon beautian what they charge for a deep condition they want 75.00 due to my hair length!!
      I went to beauty school years ago and I never would charge people that kind of money in this recession!!
