Get the Verdict: Is Papaya Castor a Go or No?


As you may already know, we recently launched our Papaya Castor Collection, designed to fulfill your hair regimen from scalp to style. Instead of simply sharing the EDEN perspective on these new items, we thought it'd be beneficial to share a review from beauty blogger, Madisen, of NaturallyMadisen.com.          After using the full collection, she shared her thoughts on each new item! Check it out below. ______________________________________   EDEN BodyWorks recently came out with their Papaya Castor Collection! First of all, I knew from the name that these products would smell tropical, and I was right! The key ingredients in this collection are Papaya and Castor Oil. But why did they choose those two ingredients? Papaya contains antioxidants and Vitamins C and A. When used on our hair, it can add volume, reduce dandruff, remove buildup, and provide relief for an itchy, flaky scalp. Castor Oil is packed with fatty acids which provide moisture to both our scalp and hair. It can... MORE

Breathe, Shake + Let It Go: Detox Your Doubts This Spring


“Wake up at 5a, meditate, workout, go to work, eat clean, read, yoga, check in with family, fall asleep” and repeat. Day in + day out, you’re striving to stay on track without dropping the ball to life’s juggling game. Even though you’ve been constantly pushing through, doubts begin swirling in your mind with each day that passes by. One morning your eyes open but the rest of you feels depleted with not enough fight or faith to defeat your negative thoughts. Just breathe. This simply calls for a life detox to reset, realign + center yourself this season. Fall Apart Everywhere you look there’s messaging encouraging 100% ambition 24 hours a day no matter the cost, but this is not a healthy mentality for any long-term goal. Society + media can have you feeling guilty for eating a few extra carbs, sleeping in on a Saturday or even slicing down your to-do list. We need time to beautifully fall apart to remindo urselves the power of slowing down + enjoying life. These ... MORE

Compare + Contrast: Shift Your Beauty Social Media Lens


Doctor? Dentist? Maybe even chiropractor? How did we miss the memo that adulting feels like an ongoing list of health appointments in an attempt to keep us from falling apart. Well, go ahead and add vision to the unfolding list of responsibilities. No need to start squirming + hoping your insurance covers it because this one can be self-diagnosed from the comfort of your queen-sized bed. With social media being the go-to destination of obsessing over your fave celeb, innovative style + of course picture-perfect hair, a thin line is created between inspiration + comparison. If you’ve ever felt drained, depleted or overly critical of yourself after your daily scroll fest, we’re here to order up a new prescription to shift your beauty social media lens. Vision Test Just like going to the eye doctor + nervously reciting the letters off the chart you can clearly see, it’s the same when it comes to social media. Does everyone else’s hair, makeup and body look crisp and clear, but begin t... MORE

Loc Love


 Self-love is one of the driving motives behind embracing natural hair, and we are completely here for it! However, often times, when natural hair is discussed, loose curls and kinks are highlighted, but locs tend to be forgotten about. No, we aren't referring to faux or goddess locs, though they make some pretty fabulous protective styles. We are talking about authentic locs! The kind that take long-term commitment. A part of why less light has been shed on locs, is because an air of mystery still resides around them. To help spread some loc love and knowledge, we reached out to a couple of well-informed ladies.    Meet the lovely Keisha Johnson, seasoned in her sisterlock journey, and Keianna Springer, a newly loc'd beauty.                @k_adore                       @keiannajenay_       How long have you had your locs and what inspired you to get them?  Keisha: My sisterlocks were installed September 2014. I’ve always wanted locs since being a kid. I was inspired to... MORE
