Many of you may already be familiar with Lush Curls Hair Box! This company was founded by a Canadian natural who is obsessed with her curly mane and the abundance of product that is now offered to natural girls across the globe! Lush Curls Hair Box is an affordable monthly product subscription service for the Naturally Curly Girls! Launch Coming Soon! The goal at Lush Curls is to take my product line Ancient Blends Naturals...to the next level! With them I will be able to tap into the Canadian natural hair care market and the masses of natural girls south of the border. While most curl box services do not cater to Canadian naturals their box will! They are Canadian and American friendly!
With Lush Curls Hair Box, I will also be able to tap into a huge natural hair following in Canada and get my products known to Canadian naturals! As a Lush Curls Hair Box Affiliate, I plan to provide them with my products so that I may be featured as well as marketed by them. Their future goal is to launch this spring! So be sure to lookout for my product line Ancient Blends Naturals as affiliate partners of Lush Curl HairBox! They will also be providing a SHOP section to their website where you all can buy my products that you have already tried in their hair box. This will be a fantastic venture and a great opportunity for our Canadian Naturalistas to be introduced to my products- Ancient Blends Naturals!!
My products are plant-based and homemade. My mission in creating this product line was to really provide a natural alternative to today's harsh, commercially driven products which contain so many toxic chemicals and preservatives. I definitely wanted to supply and maintain the health of kinky, coily and other hair types/textures in between with a moisturizing, nutritious and revitalizing hair care system to meet their personal needs. My products have been used, loved and approved by my clientele and many other customers internationally for almost three decades.
My company has grown from humble beginnings and I still create these products in my kitchen. These days, my passion for creating and sharing these special products with others, who can truly appreciate them and benefit from using them- is still as strong as the first time I blended my very first hair and scalp oil!
Ancient Blends Naturals are available here on my website: www.cowrieshell.com
I'm so grateful, thank you all kindly for your loving support.
If you have decided to ditch the dairy in your diet, your body will thank you. Between 30 and 50 million Americans are lactose intolerant, and the consumption of dairy products has been linked to everything from increased risk of ovarian and prostate cancers to ear infections and diabetes. Fortunately, plant-based milks provide a convenient and healthful alternative to cow’s milk. And if you are currently making the transition to a dairy-free diet, you will find that going dairy-free has never been easier. Soy, almond, hemp, coconut, and rice milks, among others, are taking over the dairy case—and claiming supermarket aisles all their own. There are dozens of brands of plant-based milks and hundreds of options to choose from to meet everyone’s individual tastes and nutritional needs. So how do you choose the best dairy-free milk for your diet?
Due to the overwhelming selection of plant-based milks available, it can be difficult to decide which plant-based milk to choose. In most cases, what to choose comes down to personal taste preferences. Experiment with a variety of dairy-free milks to see what pleases your palate. Coconut and soy milks tend to be sweeter and creamier in consistency. Almond, hemp, and hazelnut milks have a slightly nutty flavor to them. And rice milk tends to be more mildly sweet and thin in consistency. Differences can be noted not only among varieties of dairy-free milks, but also among brands; so experiment to find which plant-based milks please your tastebuds.
Nutrition may also play a role in determining which dairy-free milk you choose. Like cow’s milk, many varieties of dairy-free milks are fortified with nutrients including vitamins A and D. Calcium, iron, and protein needs can be easily met on a vegan diet by consuming a variety of vegetables, grains, and legumes. However, fortified non-dairy milks can also serve as an important source of nutrients—especially for those newly transitioning to a vegan diet. Soy and hemp milks are great choices for those wishing to boost protein in their diets; both soy and hemp are complete proteins providing all nine essential amino acids. Many non-dairy types of milk are also fortified with calcium, vitamin D, vitamin B12, and iron. So if you are looking to give your diet a little nutrient boost, non-dairy milks may provide the nutrients you need. Be sure to read food labels to assist in selecting a fortified product to meet your needs.
