I've been natural off and on for 15 years but have been lured by texturizers in the past (lies, don't do it!). This time its been 3 years since gave up on the hype and I am better informed and determined to stick natural!

V. interesting about shedding after preg. I have a 6month son and my hair didn't shed noticably more during or after birth. But my skin, oh no! I was a scaly lizard woman after he was born.

Happy to connect to other Euro 4a's. We can't get the same products as in the US and the weather is a whole different story! I have some henna to trade which I will describe in a separate post.

You know, i had no shedding with my first preg, only with my second.

V. intersting you should mention the weather. I read someting somewhere a few years ago about using products for skin and hair that are made with local/ regional ingredients because they respond better if you do. It was really interesting. I'll try and find it again and post the link.
