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.
Ancient Blends Naturals by Yendys is a natural, plant-based product line which was created especially to address the needs of black and biracial curly, coily and kinky hair. By using herbal infusions, pure carrier oils, nut butters, and essential oils this product line can make any mother's struggle to naturally maintain her children's curly tresses much less stressful without the use of harmful chemicals and toxins. Recently speaking with a white mother of two beautiful biracial little girls, I do understand that it can be especially challenging to deal with curly, coil, kinky hair. My product line will help bring manageability, luster, softness, and moisture (without the greasy feeling) to natural hair. The art of hair care is simple once you master it. When you learn which products and ingredients work well with different hair types, especially your child’s hair... it can make things so much easier.
Just as you have experimented with different shampoos, conditioners and hair care products on your own hair; you should also experiment to find the best hair products that produce the best results for your child’s hair. Due to the diverse textures of biracial hair, no one rule can be followed. Each hair type is quite unique and therefore may require different styling techniques, products and maintenance. Discovering how to care for your child’s unique hair is simple once you know how to style and have found the right products. Biracial hair is just as beautiful as any other hair type.
First, remember to take time to understand their hair and its needs. But most importantly, you should also be patient! The only way you will begin to know your child's hair is by trying various techniques and seeing what works best. The techniques used on one individual may not necessarily work on another, but through trial and error your child's hair care routine can become much easier. The product I do recommend from my line for detangling and moisturizing is ancient-blends-re-hydrating-moisture mist. This mist can be used after a wash and it's recommended for daily use. It's very light and will not cause build up. Allow your child to get to know their own hair texture. Let them embrace their coily hair strands while giving them lots of style options, so that they can learn to love the curls. Teach them gradually how to care for their hair. The more they learn about themselves and their biracial hair texture, the more they will love themselves. Curly, coily, kinky hair is a beautiful blessing and not a curse.
