Submissions for NaturalReview

22 Aug

This blog is not about me and my hair.  I can share what I like, but I want others to share their experiences as well. The more people who share, the more beneficial it is to others who read.  I want to show different hair types, ideas, and styles.  For that, I need some stories, reviews, photos, and tutorials from all of you.  Remember that the blog is also about more than hair.  I will put some ideas below of possible submissions.  If you have something different, send that too.

  • Hairstory
  • Product Reviews (for hair, skin, and body)
  • Style tutorials
  • Tips/Advice
  • Happy stories/horror stories
  • Photos of you and your hair
  • Recipes (for food, body, home, and hair)
  • Videos
  • Topic suggestions

Send all submissions to me at naturalbyl@gmail.com.  Thanks to all of you who have submitted stories and photos already.  I appreciate it.


Homemade Facial Toner

9 Jul



  • 1 oz. vodka
  • 3 oz. witch hazel
  • 10 drops Grapefruit essential oil
  • 5 drops Tea Tree essential oil
  • 5 drops Cypress essential oil

Directions: Add all ingredients to a 4 oz. bottle and shake to mix all ingredients. Be careful when adding the essential oils. The first time you make this recipe, add only 10 drops at a time and test on a small area of your skin to ensure no reaction before adding more oils to reach your desired strength. Shake the toner well before each use to disperse the oils.
