I've been interested in natural beauty products for quite some time, since deciding to wear my hair naturally 6 years ago and discovering natural and organic hair products my love for things natural has filtered into every aspect of my beauty regimen. One of the brands that have always been on my radar but I have not had the chance to try (until now) is Green People established in 1997 by Charlotte Vohtz who like many other green entrepreneurs saw what was missing in the market and set about making it happen. Charlotte has a huge impact on the standards set for organic health and beauty products and Green People are a leader in the field with an array of beauty products for the whole family.

Hi Dolls, I'm a starting hair growth challenge from November to February with a difference! I'll be wearing my Nazuri Curls custom wig to grow out my hair with little to no manipulation. I'm doing this for several reasons.
1. I'm currently suffering from hair loss around my crown my hair is falling out, I've been prescribed a low maintenance hair regimen which includes a medicated shampoo and that's it! so no twist outs, braids NOTHING! until I find out what is the underlining issue. (see previous post)
2. To show that wigs are the ideal way to protect your hair for longer periods of time and still care for your hair and scalp with very little manipulation.
I want you all to join me in the challenge, regardless of if your're dealing with hair loss, Shedding or just want to grow your hair out and protect it from the harsh climate. I'll be offering one lucky participant a goodie bag of my favourite beauty goodies (contents TBA)
I'm currently suffering from some quite severe hair loss, I noticed a very small thin patch of hair while I was pregnant with Freya, I didn't think to much of it because of pregnancy hormones. After having Freya my hair began to shed drastically all over making the hair loss at my crown more noticeable. I went to the doctors then and was told that shedding is normal and to wait until Freya is a year old if it continues then you may have a problem. My hair started to grow back and thicken up though the middle remained on the thinner side.
Fast forward a year Freya is now over two years old and I have noticed a considerable amount of thinning around my crown. I returned to the doctors yesterday and saw a new GP as I wasn't happy with the male doctor I saw previously. She great very understanding and let me explain myself and didn't make me feel silly about my concerns.

Another Amazing Treatment from Mahogany Naturals! you may remember my utter love for the Hair Detox Treatment from the same brand and now I have a new love Rhassoul Cocoa & Honey Deep Hair Treatment is giving me life! It's literally smells good enough to eat and my hair feels like heaven. Mahogany Naturals is a spa brand, so it's not cheap, yes! I was gifted this product however I'd definitely part with £35 because I know how good the products are, however I really wish the brand did sample sizes. I can understand people being unwilling to part with £35 without knowing if the product will work for them hopefully this can be remedied in the future.
