I love incorporating natural oils and butters into my daily personal care routine . Knowing what’s inside your products is so important because we have to protect ourselves from the dangers of toxic ingredients. What better way to be safe than to create your own beauty products from home! So I’ve partnered with CurlMix to provide this delicious DIY recipe that you can use on your hair and body.

 

What is CurlMix? CurlMix is the first DIY box formulated for curly hair. This subscription box service allows you to create your own natural beauty products in your kitchen. Each month you get a box of raw ingredients to create things like shampoo, conditioner, stylers, or creams for the hair and or body. It’s fun and exciting because not only do they use all natural ingredients but each month you create something different. CurlMix aims to empower the conscious curly consumer through education. They believe that you shouldn’t sacrifice integrity for beauty. This is so inline with my mission here at The Holistic Honey which is not sacrificing health in the name of beauty!

The event was held last weekend at the House of Juice Brooklyn– the organic juicer and brewery. This was my first time at this local juice bar. They have a variety of organic cold pressed juices, smoothies, and kombucha. If you follow me on Instagram then you know that I have been obsessed with kombucha lately.
