In the summertime when the weather is high, the sun, sand, and surf may feel great when you’re out there enjoying it. But exposure to the elements can do a number on your skin and hair in unexpected ways. I already alluded to the issues I’ve been experiencing in my Natural Hair Summer Loving post. Allow me to tell you more about one particular product that has been truly helping me survive the summer with fluffy, detangled and happy hair. Allow me to tell you more about Eden Body Works.
Seven years ago, a teenager named Jasmine Lawrence founded Eden to resolve issues she was dealing with because of harsh chemical relaxers.
From the very beginning — long before it was trendy — Eden has been about natural beauty. Their products contain no alcohol, no petroleum, no mineral oils or sodium sulfates. Using soothing peppermint and invigorating tea tree oil as main ingredients, the Eden Body Works product line has been giving my hair and scalp the refreshing nourishment I so desperately needed this summer.
My favorite products from the line include the shampoo (cleansing without stripping my hair of moisture), the conditioner (love it for a summertime cowash), and the hair milk which contains organic coconut oil, jojoba and avocado oils. If you have been a fan of other hair milks but have been seeking something to soothe and refresh your curls with the tingle of peppermint and tea tree, look no further!
But you don’t just have to listen to my opinion. In honor of seven years of Eden Body Works and five years of this here blog you’re reading, seven lucky Afrobella readers will get an Eden Body Works gift set including the full product line and their signature jute bag (which is quite lovely, no?).
All you have to do is leave a comment on this post telling me which Eden Body Works product you’re most excited to try! This contest is open to US and Canadian bellas, and will be closed on Tuesday. A winner will be chosen and announced by next week.
Good luck, bellas!
