When I wrote the article on the “7 Reasons Why You Need To Stop Using Coconut Oil & Shea Butter On Your Hair” a lot of you were were skeptical. Some of you even thought that this was crazy talk from some white man (check my bio, I’ve been a Black woman for over 30 years) trying to get you to buy my “products.” Others thought that I was just some rambling know-it- all sharing my opinion on natural hair care. However, not only did I drop some valuable hair care information I even invited you guys to join me for a challenge that involved not using the aforementioned products. The challenge was simple: a #30DayHairDetox that involved participants not using coconut oil, shea butter, castor oil and Eco Styler gel.

For 30 days participants took part in our hair detox while learning simple techniques leading them to proper hydration. The underlying theme of the #30DayHairDetox is really just wash your darn hair. With shampoo. And use simple conditioning and styling products with water-based and water soluble ingredients.
Over 5,000 people joined us for this revolutionary curl changing challenge and the feedback from participants has been absolutely phenomenal.

I thought it would be awesome to share the experiences of five completely different women who joined us in an effort to get the best curls of their lives.
