Try This: Eden Body Works Peppermint Tea Tree Hair Milk
Glamazons, Can I share my struggle with you guys?
OK so I was desperately searching for a product that could give me curl definition while moisturizing my hair. Gel defined my curls but dried my hair out — an absolute no when you’re going for a lush Tracee Ellis Ross ‘fro.
And then, there’s this scenario: let’s say I spend an hour twisting or braiding my hair after a cowash, let it dry and then wear it out on the first day in a perfect, beautiful ‘fro. Sounds awesome, right? Right.
But then, it all goes awry when I sleep in a pineapple and take it out the next day just to find out it’s dry as toast. Grrr! And it gets worse – I’d pull out some of my fave moisturizers to get rid of the dryness but would end up destroying my curl pattern in the process. Beyond frustrating!
I went through tons of moisturizers (trust me, I have an arsenal upstairs in my room! ask my friends!) and found this gem: Eden Body Works Peppermint Tea Tree Hair Milk.
The bottle is almost finished – that’s how much I love it!
It’s not heavy so it doesn’t destroy your style but it does detangle, moisturize and protect against split ends. I can also see that my hair is healthier and stronger after using it for a couple of weeks and that’s because it’s all natural. It blends organic coconut oil, jojoba and avocado oil. And has this peppermint smell that everyone loves.
For my braid out look, I wet my hair and only applied Eden Body Works Hair Milk (yes, no gel or styling cream). Then I separated my hair in eight sections (four on each side) and braided each section like Celie from “The Color Purple.”
The next day, I pulled the curls apart for volume and voila! How simple is that.
And some Instagram love (a day later):
