Being An #EDENRealBeauty - How to Believe In Yourself

By: April C. Kendall Outside of becoming a health and beauty blogger, I’ve always wanted to model. Not specifically runway, but I always wanted to showcase my natural hair. It has been difficult because I was always too short and never the right size to do so. When I saw that EDEN BodyWorks was looking for real models I knew that this was something I wanted to do. I have always thought about this and wondered if this could be my reality. It is important to understand that dreams can not only turn into potential careers but more importantly bring happiness to your life. I decided to follow my aspirations of becoming a model. Life brings you opportunities that you cannot pass by. Here are a few tips to help you follow your goals:   Follow your dreams: No dream is too big or too small to achieve. The only time it is not achievable is when you allow your dreams to remain a thought. Was I scared to submit my pictures to be considered? Absolutely! I have learned that it is okay to... MORE

#EDENU + CurlyInCollege Take Over

Welcome to April, month of the #EDENU college tour partnership with CurlyInCollege! A number of young ladies begin their natural hair journey during their college years, as it tends to be a time of self-discovery and acceptance. That could mean anything from simply thinking about going natural, to actually transitioning, doing a big chop, or even just learning how to care for the kinks and curls they’ve always had. The beginning stages of such a journey can ignite questions about hair regimens, what products to try and how to obtain them, especially on a college student budget.  That’s where CurlyInCollege comes in! CurlyInCollege is a platform that celebrates multicultural college students with naturally curly hair. The platform was founded by Ashley Scott, graduate of Purdue University. CurlyInCollege recruits and develops student leaders who are bold enough to navigate a "curly girl" lifestyle on campus while connecting like-minded individuals to form a national network of on-cam...

@ItsDaynaDane Talks #EDENSkin Care

By Dayna Bolden - @itsdaynadane Over the past month, I have been the busiest I have ever been. Between being a full time mother, wife, corporate business woman, and blogger, it can be hard to find time for myself. But one of the things that I wrote on my goals list for 2017 is to make MORE time for myself. Self-care for anyone is important, but especially for the busy hardworking women- we need it, but we often times neglect it!! Honestly, self-care can be achieved doing the simplest of things, like relaxing in the tub and pampering yourself at home. So, I want to share one of my favorite and easiest self-care routines and it includes the EDEN Body line!   I am an early riser. I am up every morning by 4:45am. I take this time to relax in bed, think about my day, and to really wake myself up (haha). I then start my self-care time by taking a nice relaxing shower. I turn the temperature on hot and allow the water to wash my stress, fatigue, and worries away. I think of only positive... MORE

Spring into Color!

At some point in our natural hair journey, we may get the itch to spice up our look with a little color. Natural hair is one of the best canvas’s for changing your hue.  If you're considering permanently dyeing your hair for the first time, there are some precautions to take. EDEN BodyWorks family member, Tia Hurd, is sharing some tips that’ll help you achieve your new look, and how to maintain the integrity of your hair.   You can use at-home dye if you're going for a one-dimensional dark hue. At-home dyes have come a long way over the past two decades. If you're going light, box dye won't be your best option, as these dyes often aren't strong enough to change hair from dark to light. But, if you're going dark, purchase a couple of boxes just to be on the safe side. Don’t make the mistake of underestimating the thickness of your hair. @heygorjess  - light to dark   VISIT a salon if you want to lighten your hair. Everyone's hair is structured differently, and the exact formulat...

3 Simple Self-Care Ideas for Busy Moms On the Go

Welcome to Week 3 of Women's History Month! This Wednesday, we are taking some advice on self-care from the lovely Michelle Thames - wife, mother and creator of Happily Ever Natural. @naturalista86                          I will admit that I am not the best at putting time aside to practice self-care. Self-care is a choice, and I have a hard time of choosing to put myself first. Juggling being a mompreneur, keeping my marriage thriving and being the best mom to my daughter I tend to put myself last. I struggle with feeling guilty for taking time for myself and taking time away from my work and my family. Growing up, self-care just wasn’t something that my mother did. I was never taught or shown the importance of self-care, and that is why I think I have a hard time practicing it for myself.   As I have gotten older I have learned that self-care is important to live a balanced life. I have learned that self-care can be simple and not as complicated as I make it seem. If you need an ... MORE

#EDENWonderMom Reporting to Duty

We're celebrating week 2 of Women's History Month with a few wise words from Ylorie Taylor, EDEN Bodyworks's very own Vice President, and also a proud momma! Enjoy! In almost every conversation that includes a mom, I’ve heard another one say “I don’t know how you do it all.” The reality is we all wear many hats everyday that potentially place us in different roles, demanding various talents and time. I am a wife. I am a mother. I am a sister. I am a friend. I am a Vice President. I am a mentor. I am my mother’s only child (yes, that means something too). I am also… ME, independent of all the other roles I assume and love.   I love being a wife and mom. I also love running a brand I believe in – and consider my “other baby”. It’s quite the balancing act. Truthfully, I don’t believe in equality of time; balance by definition implies “even distribution” and that just doesn’t exist in my world. Nothing is created equal in my household. There’s a constant tug-of-war that I manage in reg... MORE

Tips for the Fly Female Entrepreneur

What better way to kickoff Women's History month than getting a few tips from #FlyFemaleEntrepreneur herself, Renae Bluitt? Ms. Bluitt is a PR consultant as well as the content creator and founder of Crush Media and In Her Shoes, a blog created to empower, enlighten and uplift women committed to realizing their dreams. Today, she's sharing a few tips with us on how to successfully be your own boss. 1. If you don’t truly love your business then you won’t be successful. If you read the stories of famous entrepreneurs and how they built their businesses, you will find that it all comes down to the root of loving what you are doing. Money is definitely important, but it could take a long time to come and if you don’t truly enjoy your work then you won’t be able to convince yourself to keep going. You can only do something that you don’t really love for so long before you give up. By all means, do what you love.   2. Brand yourself. No matter what you do, it is important to h... MORE

The "Essentials" of Citrus Fusion: What You Need to Know

By now you may have heard some buzz about the latest addition to the EDEN BodyWorks family - the Citrus Fusion Collection, which is a part of our new EDEN Essentials line. Within the collection you can find a Mousse, Conditioner, Butter and a Refresher spray, all in some pretty sleek-looking packaging. So, what is there to know about these newbies, you ask? 1. It’s all about convenience… Two of the four Citrus Fusion family members have dual usage (hence the fusion). You can apply the Refresher and the Butter to both hair and body. The reason? Because when it comes down to natural ingredients, most nutrients that benefit your hair also greatly benefit your skin. The Refresher spray can be used to add shine, detangle and moisturize the hair,but it also serves to soothe the skin, adding moisture and a light, clean, citrus-y scent to your body! The Butter is a lightweight moisturizer created to hydrate both the skin and hair, leaving them silky, soft and smelling great. It can als... MORE


Last month we went in search of women across North America who truly love their hair. And we found them! Once we found them, we asked them to share their favorite looks with us, how they achieved them, and of course – how they feel when rocking their frocks styled with EDEN BodyWorks. Here’s what we learned: Wash n Go’s are a FAVORITE! Our Coconut Shea CoWash lets you finger detangle and leaves hair feeling super moisturized. For added definition, the Coconut Shea Curling Defining Crème is our #1 product for good reason.    "EDEN makes my hair feel alive again, which makes me feel confident with my natural beauty." – Donyell Johnson (Ohio) of @AdoreDonnie     "EDEN BodyWorks makes my hair feel soft, moisturized, and bouncy!" – Aysha Sow (New York) of @AfricanMelaninnn   Diffusers are a curly girl’s friend. Almost 1/3 of our wash-n-go beauties use them to speed up the drying process and fluff curls.   "EDEN makes my hair feel loved, healthy, and replenished!" – Krist... MORE


Your hair is such an important part of your identity. When scrolling through Instagram, YouTube and other social media for inspiration it can be really easy to get caught up in comparing yourself to others. It’s great to have people who are at a different stage in their hair journey to look to but it shouldn’t take away from the pride that you feel about your own mane. Loving your hair, flaws and all, is the first step to finding new ways to manage and grow it.   What’s more important than long or full hair is healthy hair. You don’t want to sacrifice the health or neglect your hair just for appearances. Our hair is more than an accessory. Our hair is a reflection of the nutrients in our bodies, our stress levels and more. If you start by working to understanding and nurturing your locks you’ll be surprised with what you can achieve in terms of growth and new style options. It can definitely be frustrating to not see the results that you want immediately but like all good things th... MORE

The EDEN Blog

Between the rhythmic beats of Beyonce’s Lemonade and soulful lyrics from Solange’s ‘A Seat At The Table’, you couldn’t help but to spend an extra 5 minutes in the mirror each morning belting out these tunes. Both sisters became a beaming light with their music and impactful visuals. Their albums turned into positive anthems that women of color yearned to hear since they focused on embracing, loving + accepting who you are while celebrating strength and power. From the texture of our hair to the beautiful variety of skintones, it encouraged you to wrap yourself in pride and focus on ways of stepping into your confidence. Solange - Photo: Elias Tahan COMB Through Your Past-  Both singers gave us a timely reminder that you can't know where you're going until you know where you've been. The special ingredient of our beauty individually and culturally is in our strength. Not in the empty label as ‘superwoman’ in which women pretend to always have it together. But in showcasing the differ... MORE
