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.

Fellow avocado devotees, smashed avo enthusiasts, and guacamole addicts – we have news for you: you’re about to love avocado even more.
Avocados are basically synonymous with happiness. Their bright, green, creamy insides have become a staple ingredient in breakfasts, smoothies, and even face masks all around the world.
They’re rich and creamy, and filled with healthy fats that promote brain and heart health. Plus They make everything you put them on taste miles more yummy.
Basically, if there was ever a world without avocado in it, we certainly wouldn’t want to be part of it.
The humble avocado is one of the most versatile, and nutritious, foods around. One of its main superpowers, however, has fallen a little under the radar: the superpower of restoring moisture and hydration to dry hair.
Dryness is not your hair’s friend. It can lead to breakage, split ends, frizz and overall lackluster hair quality.
There are few ingredients that can truly nourish dry hair by moisturizing hair shafts from within – and avocado is one of them.
It contains magical healing properties that will restore the driest tresses back to their hydrated state of glory. Here’s how.
Fatty Acids = Long-Lasting Hydration
One of the avocado’s major strengths is in its fatty amino acids. These acids work hard to coat your hair shaft, locking in much-needed moisture, while avocado’s natural oils ensure your hair stays well hydrated.
Avocados contain a mixed bag of vitamins, including Vitamin A, D, E, and B6 – feeding your hair truckloads of nutrients. They’re also rich in minerals like copper and iron, which work to soothe your scalp and promote healthy growth.
Queen of Antioxidants
Avocados are chock-full of antioxidants, which help protect tresses from free radicals and damage – therefore extending the lifespan of your healthy, hydrated hair.
Forever your hero, avo will help repair the damage dryness has caused your hair by deeply conditioning it and feeding it the good stuff it needs to be restored to optimal health.
By unclogging your hair follicles, avocado will help to stimulate new hair growth for an even fuller, more robust and beautiful mane.
Our (completely and utterly unbiased) picks for best avocado-infused hair care are:

Summer Glamping – It’s camping, without the mosquitos, waste buckets and wet towelette showers. Want to find out more? Read on- you’ll love it!
Calling all summer lovers, this one’s for you. If you plan to relax in the sun and lay out on the beach this summer, it’s vital to make sure your skin stays protected and hydrated. While a day of snorkelling, hiking or lounging by the pool is amazing for lifting your spirits – it can be quite drying on your skin, because the sunshine can draw much-needed moisture out of your skin.
Here are some reasons why you should pamper yourself:
1. Uplifts Your Mood
When we are well rested and have spent time with ourselves, the serotonin (also known as happiness hormones) are activated and immediately improves your mood. Having some pamper time also means your physical looks are enhanced and / or polished. Feeling good from the inside to the out is so uplifting. When is your next pamper day scheduled?
2. Improves Productivity
Did you know regular pamper sessions can improve your productivity? That’s right, because you’re so relaxed from getting pampered, your mind and body also relaxes. You literally get a mental break from the craziness in your life. This overall helps you re-focus and reconnect with daily tasks, making you feel ready to take on the world.
3. Reduces Stress
When we stress less our memory, focus and overall brain functions improve. Thanks to having time to pamper yourself, can enjoy these benefits.
4. Stay Youthful
Researchers have said that regular pampering sessions can help to slow the aging process. Why? Because you are taking the time to upkeep your appearance and with all the other wonderful benefits of getting pampered can bring. Not just for your outside but for your whole well being.
5. Improves Relationships
The old saying goes you can’t really love someone until you love yourself. Loving yourself, your body and giving yourself ‘me time’ improves your relationship with yourself, in turn, this will help you with your other relationships as they all mirrors of your own self.

If you often end the week with a froster full of vegetables that hasn’t been touched and bowl full of fruit you haven’t eaten – you’re not alone. In fact, around 25% of our total grocery shop ends up in the trash. That means that almost a quarter of all foodstuffs we buy go to waste.
But, alas, there is a solution. Why not turn uneaten foods into natural cleaning products? Aside from minimizing waste, this strategy has other benefits too. By using all-natural household products, you avoid exposing yourself and your family to unnecessarily harsh chemicals – particularly in the kitchen. It’s safe, it’s eco-friendly, and importantly – it works.
Without further ado, here are our top 5 most effective natural cleaners.
With its medley of antiseptic and antibacterial properties, lemon has the natural strength to kill germs and even remove stains. Their high acidity levels mean they can also act as a bleaching agent – so they’re perfect for brightening up bathroom and kitchen tiles. Mix lemon juice with water to form mother nature’s ultimate cleanser and use it to wash dishes, surfaces and wipe off stains.
Much like lemon, vinegar is high in acidity – so it’s powerful in killing germs and warding off nasty bacteria. Simply mix one part vinegar to two parts water in a large spray bottle, and there you have it – a brand new, healthy and natural surface cleaner. For really tough cleaning, just use it straight outta the bottle.
3. Banana peel
Here’s one that might surprise you; banana peel! Instead of tossing your banana peel into the trash, make a beeline for the cutlery drawer. Simply blend the skins with a little bit of water to form a paste and use it to polish your silverware – we promise you it’ll be shinier than ever.
4. Tea bags
Tea is full of tannins, which means it’s super effective in polishing wooden surfaces like cabinets and floors. Just make sure you allow them to cool first. BONUS: If you want to keep your fridge smelling fresh and clean, keep some Green Tea leaves inside it to eliminate any nasty odors!
Got some scrubbing to do? Reach for the salt. Salt works really well as an abrasive cleaner – use it to remove gunk from pans, showers, and floors. When you mix salt with a little bit of water, however, you crate a saline solution that works really well to remove stains from the carpet and clothes.
