How do I get my short 4C hair into a sleek bun/low puff? this is one of the most frequently asked questions, it's pretty simple really Eco Styler Gel, a Soft/waves brush and a head wrap.

Pre Poo [pre shampoo/pre cleanse] is one of those natural hair girl things we all do and probably don't really understand why we are doing it [definitely the case for me for quite some time]. I've started to pre poo my hair religiously before every wash and I'm seeing the benefits of the very useful step in my regimen.
Pre pooing is an important step in your hair care, and could be the key to beating dry hair and retaining moisture and it's something you shouldn't skip if you like myself have highly porous hair.

I have Aveda to thank for my love of holistic products, many years ago I started my career in the salon industry with Aveda. And as a brand they definitely got me me thinking about the products I use and there sourcing stories. as the years have passed I have discovered many brands that use organic or natural ingredients so I was delighted when Aveda contacted me to try some products geared towards textured hair. Aveda has always catered to all hair types and I've used ranges such as Dry Remedy and Brilliant. It's been sometime since using Aveda products and some new products have been launched in my absence.
