Hair Care Talk
Here at Hair Care Talk you can learn more about us, and about the natural hair care products we recommend.
Hello and welcome to Hair Care Talk. Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Fabiola Lapeine.
I am the president and founder of Wisely Made Inc.™ and I would like to speak with you about a subject that we can all relate to, our hair and natural hair care products.
A woman’s hair is her crowning glory and we all spend thousands of dollars as well as countless hours attempting to make it behave and actually BE as glorious as possible. For some of us that may mean endless hours in the bathroom every morning combing, brushing, curling and adding product after product leaden with chemicals in a bid for control, for others weekly trips to the beauty salon are in order.
We burn our hair with hair dryers, flat and curling irons, change the color or shape with chemicals that burn our skin as well as dry it out and we force it to maintain the style we want with what amounts to glue in the form of hairspray or gel. All of which makes our hair less the “glory” we aim for and could unknowingly make us all very sick.
A couple of years ago, in 2006, I was standing in the bathroom getting ready apply a chemical to my hair to relax it, like I have been doing since I was around 5 years old, when suddenly I decided I was sick and tired of it all. I decided that nothing should have that much power over me so I let it go. I was tired of enduring its many grueling effects such as chemical burns, damaged hair, being afraid to get my hair wet and not being able to scratch my head when I felt like it.
At first I did not realize how challenging and difficult it would be to learn to live with and care for my hair in its natural state, but I was sure that I did not want to go back to those time consuming and nasty chemicals again so I began to research hair care articles, healthy hair advice and as much information as I could find about caring for natural hair.
What I learned is that many of the problems I was having stemmed from my natural hair actually rejecting the chemicals in the products I was using. But I also learned something else. I also learned that the chemicals daily in our personal care products we use on our hair and bodies were toxic and dangerous.
Studies are revealing chemical contamination in human bodies, finding associations between chemical exposure and human disabilities and disease, and demonstrating toxic effects at increasingly lower levels of exposure. This mortified me to the point that I began creating my own natural personal care products for my family.
Soon by using the all natural hair care recipes I made in my own kitchen my “problem” hair began to flourish and become the “crowning glory” every woman dreams of. I spent the next several years perfecting my recipes and creating Wisely Made Inc™ as a way to share the benefits I had found with all of you.
As a Registered Nurse with a heart to care, serve, educate and advocate, I created Hair Care Talk as a way to share information with others about the benefits of using natural and organic products to care for ourselves.
