Born to be Wild: it’s Time to Embrace Your Natural Curls

Are you ready for the best curls of your life?

 

We hope so, because they’re coming.

 

If your hair was born to be wild, don’t try to tame it. Embrace it.

Curly hair, like any other hair type, can express a major part of a person’s identity, so the moment you flip the switch and tune your mind into wanting to make the most of your strands – instead of straightening them or changing them into something they’re not — the easier it becomes to fall back in love with the hair you were born with.

 

While your straight-haired friends might express confusion at your relationship with your mane, curly-haired sisters have an unwritten code that unites us: we know the effort that gets put into maintaining our curls.

 

At Raw Sugar, we get it. And we don’t want to hide your curls, because they’re part of what makes you who you are. Instead, we want to maximize your hair’s natural potential with our new line of curly-hair-loving products – the NEW Truly Unruly Shampoo and Conditioner, made to unleash your inner can’t-be-tamed goddess.

Truly Unruly Shampoo – Avocado + Apple Cider Vinegar + Rosemary Oil

What could possibly give more love to curly hair than a Cold Pressed blend of natural goodness? Truly Unruly Shampoo was designed to keep your hair’s true character in tact, only with more OOMPH, more shine, more moisture and much better overall health. This shampoo will deeply cleanse your hair without weighing your beautiful curls down – it keeps them bouncy and free. Enriched with the deep moisturization of Avocado, refreshingly cleansing Apple Cider Vinegar, and hair-healing Rosemary Oil – your tresses will be left well-loved and beautifully defined. It’ll keep your wild curls under control, but make sure their wild spirit remains untouched!

Truly Unruly Conditioner – Avocado + Apple Cider Vinegar + Rosemary Oil

The more moisture you can keep in textured tresses, the better, so upping your hair’s dose of nourishing vitamins and nutrients will have it looking better than ever. Instead of suppressing your hair’s natural texture and beauty, our Truly Unruly Conditioner highlights it. Its super boosting ingredients are a power-packed blend of Cold Pressed nutrients that control frizz and restore shine. Rich Avocado feeds your locks until they’re smooth and hydrated, Apple Cider Vinegar softens and rejuvenates, and Rosemary Oil unveils its natural health.



So if your hair is Truly Unruly, we say – keep it that way, because stunning locks are on the way.

10 Completely Free Self-Care Practices you can Start Tonight

In this wildly fast-paced world we live in, it can be tricky to find the time to focus on caring for ourselves: bodies, souls and minds.

 

We prioritize achievements over well-being, and to-do lists over long-term wellness.

 

Between packing school lunches, trying to drink enough water, and fighting to find a balance between work life, home life, and a social life – it’s hard to find the time to pencil in self-care.

 

But the thing is, self care shouldn’t be an optional activity – it should be a priority. When you’re well and happy, other parts of your life will thrive too.

 

 

Self-care isn’t a One Time Deal.

 

You don’t just tick it off the list and forget about it. It’s continuous. For your self-care routine to be effective, it needs to become as ingrained in your daily routine as your morning tea or coffee.

The following are simple, and completely free, self-care habits you can add to your routine. They’re so easy, you can start tonight.

 

Start a Gratitude File.

Take a few moments to reflect on the day that’s passed, and focus in on the things that brought you joy. They could be as simple as a delicious warm meal or a cuddle from a loved one. Write at least three of these down into a journal every night.

Be Completely Present in Something you Usually do on Autopilot.

Monotonously brush your teeth every evening while your mind is miles away? Try and be present in those few minutes and use it as a mini mindfulness session.

Clear a Space that’s been Bothering you.

And keep it that way. If the clutter of your shoe rack or drawers have been nagging at you, don’t put it off – tidy it up now and make a habit of keeping it like that.

Edit your Social Media Feed.

Social media can be draining. Sift through your feed and mute or hide anyone whose posts don’t serve you, don’t make you feel good or teach you anything beneficial.

Stretch it out.

Unknot your tensions and stretch out your kinks with a few minutes on the mat – or the bedroom floor, whatever works best for you.

Make Time for Mindful Breathing.

Oxygenate by taking three deep breaths into your abdomen, and let the air trickle out of your stomach and chest.

Pamper your Body Before Bed.

If you don’t have time to soak in a long, indulgent bath – perhaps you could take some time to lovingly massage body lotion into your skin, or put a mask in your hair before bed.

Set an Intention for the Next Day.

If you set one achievable intention for the day ahead, you’ll wake up with purpose. Try to set no more than one, that way – your focus will be fierce and your day more successful.

Switch Off for a While.

For you, switching off could mean putting your phone on airplane mode or losing yourself in a good book. Whatever it is, it’s important to give our minds a rest – at least for a little while.

Connect with People you Love.

We mean really connect. Have a nice conversation with the kids as you put them to bed, ask your partner about their day and really listen, or call someone you miss. Human connection is so important for a fulfilled soul – make it meaningful, every day.
