For starters I would say about 2 and ½ years ago I was tired of putting a relaxer in my hair. I had just moved to Florida and was planning on living there for the rest of my life. (LOL) I thought I wanted to live there forever but things happened. Anyway I was on this organic journey with my hair as for the way I was eating and the things I was putting on my skin that was another story. When I moved back to NYC I decided to go green all the way.
