When I started Iraba, I was driven by the belief that it was possible to create cosmetics that we could feel good about, but that also make us feel good and find confidence within ourselves. My wish was for those we touch to ultimately show up in the world like the incomparable people they truly are.
Ok my dear, let's troubleshoot. First off...don't feel bad. I've been there, done that...so many times, it's not even funny. Remember, we agreed that you'd try the wash and go at least 3 times before you give up.
Ease is a big part of what we believe in. It's great for curls to look perfect, but if it's going to take hours and hours to do, is it all worth it? We'd say on most days...probably not! We most definitely fall closer to the lazy natural category than anywhere else 🙈
Excellent question! While that's a question you will have to answer for yourself based on what you like to do to your hair, and how you like your hair to look, here are a few key things to consider before you decide:
On July 25, 2020, a large ship carrying 4000 tonnes of fuel crashed on a reef in Mauritius, and eventually started leaking the content of its cargo all over the coastline. The people of Mauritis are rallying to clean up the mess.
Did you know? #Umuganura is a day of thanksgiving that was not celebrated at the end of the harvest, but just as the first fruits of the harvest began to be seen. In Ancient Rwanda, it was an occasion to give thanks to God and the Ancestors for the harvest and all good things in life. The elders tasted the first fruits first.🥝
If you have curly hair, you know that it’s easy to find yourself stuck with that dreaded situation: tangled, matted hair.
Do you also have flashbacks from childhood when a well-intentioned caregiver would run a comb and rip through your thick, dry, tightly packed curls? If you’re familiar with this, you’d also be able to recognize the sound of hair breaking off in the process, yikes!
If you think you have 4c hair, you might feel as though your hair is the driest and most tightly wound of all the hair types. This fact could be true, but it could also be because your hair is very dehydrated. As in…desert style dehydrated… because it never quite gets the care it deserves. Let us fix that, shall we?
Whether we like it or not, hair is a big part of how we see ourselves. Iraba asserts that with the right tools, we can appreciate our natural curl pattern, and realize that this hair that is so close to our faces is a big part of what makes each one of us both unique, and incomparable. That we, therefore, owe it to ourselves to care for those curls with the best stuff ever.
