Truly Yours, A.: December Beauty Favorites

December Beauty Favorites

When I decided to return to natural hair it was all based on the amount of chemicals I was putting in my hair each time I relaxed or colored it. In my 16 for 2016 post I vowed to take better care of my hair and myself by using more natural products. December marked the first month where I used mainly natural ingredients in my self-care regimen!


Dr. Bronner's Lavender Castile Soap // Aztec Secret Bentonite Clay // OGX Sea Mineral Moisture Conditioner // Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera Juice

Dr. Bronner's Lavender Castile Soap - I bought this product only because I wanted free shipping when ordering my bentonite clay. It was one of the best purchases I've made all year! This organic soap has multiple uses, but I like to dilute it with water and use it as a body wash. It gets me squeaky clean, but doesn't dry out my skin.

Aztec Secret Bentonite Clay - I discovered this product on YouTube after watching a couple people use it as a detoxifying mask on their natural hair. I followed their recipes, but ended up making my own (I'll it share on the blog so stay tuned!) that does exactly what I needed it to do. My hair is always so soft and shiny after using this a couple times a month.

OGX Sea Mineral Moisture Conditioner - If I'm not washing my hair with my bentonite clay mask, then I'm co-washing with this bottle of amazing-ness. It leaves my super soft and easy to manager and it has amazing slip - which is great for detangling! I'm already on my second (large) bottle and I know I'll be repurchasing it soon. OGX products are great if you want a shampoo or conditioner that has no sulfates or harsh ingredients.

Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera Juice - This was another purchase based on a video I saw on YouTube that has really been worth the purchase. I use aloe vera juice as a leave-in on my hair after washing and I've also tried it in my bentonite clay hair mask. It leaves my hair soft and well moisturized and a little goes a long way. It can leave my hair a little hard if I use too much so I dilute it with water in a spray bottle. I have a huge jug in my fridge that I'll be using for months to come!
