This supports my belief that chemical hair care is not the only option. Not only are chemicals hard on the hair, but on the scalp as well.

The words "proteins of silk and soy" just SOUNDS fantastic, imagine how good they would do to your hair. Add some E.O. (lavender is my favorite) and I'm in love! Blondes gotta seriously mois

I began using apple cider vinegar to combat flakes and it's been working very well for me. Didn't know about avocado until the podcast. I have tightly coiled hair, so I'd like to try some avocado. Thanks for the podcasts. :)
