and the desire to
Fellowship with like minded naturals
Network and learn more about moisture

I had the opportunity to meet fellow Richmond blogger Kenyatta, of All Tressed Up!

To maintain natural moisture she had two suggestions.  One is putting a mixture of 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and one table spoon of honey.  She revealed, after throwing away shampoo, the ritual of co-washing (conditioning-washing) has solved her lack of moisture.

The group shared favorite brands…
Taliah Waajid’s Products
Giovanni conditioner
Trader Joe’s shampoo
