Natural beauty benefits.

First of all, some of you may be asking “What is a Pre-Poo?” A Pre-Poo is the process of applying a treatment to your hair prior to shampooing and conditioning. Hence the name “Pre-Poo”. It’s an extra step you can add to your hair routine. A Pre-Poo will add moisture to your hair, and help keep it from becoming too dry from shampooing.  We all know that shampooing will strip your hair of moisture. Now that fall has officially begun and winter is just around the corner, this is the perfect time to experiment with different Pre-Poo’s. There are so…

I recently shaved my head for the second time in 18 months (you can read about it the first time here http://reneholiday.com/nurturing-locs/ ). It was unexpected and it was unplanned. I thought about it for a couple of days. Literally about 48 hours later I called my barber, and headed his way to shave my head, on a Friday evening… Now let me take you back to the weekend prior.

As the New Year was just around the corner, I kept thinking about “What can I do to upgrade my current look? My personal style?”  I’ve been wearing dreadlocs since 1999. They have been waist long for years. I was in desperate need of something new. I embraced hair change often during the 90’s.  I wore pixie cuts, braids, bobs, you name it. I was changing my hairstyle like the weather. When I decided to loc my hair, I had just given birth to my baby girl Zoe Rene’.  Back then locs (especially in Los Angeles) were not as common…

I found the Aura Cacia Shower Tablets while running thru my local Sprouts market. Aura Cacia is known for their aromatherapy products, and I have used their essential oils, bath salts, and body lotions just to name a few. I ran into my local Sprouts for hair products, and the Aura Cacia Shower Tablets caught my eye. They immediately peeked my interest.  I asked myself, “What in the world is a shower tablet?”  I picked up the lavender scent, and it smelled amazing! I had to give them a try. Aura Cacia Shower Tablets are very simple to use. Think…
