EPISODE 5 WHO IS GILETTE LEUWATT ?
YOU KNOW I ALWAYS BELIEVED THAT THE SOLUTIONS OF YOUR OWN PROBLEMS ARE MOST OF THE TIME WHERE YOU COME FROM.
How I was so right about this, especially when the solution for me came directly from my country, in CAMEROON (Africa). Everything started with an article in AMINA magazine. I need to add that this magazine is the almost equivalent of Essence for African women in France. I also used to work there when I was in university (yes a long time agooo).
This article was about a Cameroonian cosmetologist who create a brand of product for African hair based with plants, oil and herbs from Cameroon. She also open an institute to treat baldness and African hair in Paris. She was before a banker but during a frequent holidays spend in her home village she just realized that woman who lived there had more beautiful hair than the women in the city and in Europe too. She also noticed that the frequency of alopecia was more prevalent when you relaxed your hair or wear a wave.
ALL THIS I ALREADY KNOW IT but what caught my deep interest was the fact that she stated 5 important things for me:
WE NEED TO ACCEPT OUR HAIR THE WAY THEY ARE BECAUSE there is always a reason in nature who justify how your hair are LIKE EVRYTHING IN THE WORLD IS UNIQUE,
BALDNESS IS NOT IRREVERSIBLE
STOP USING ALL CHIMICAL even product like SHAMPOO because its take off all the sebum produced by your skin and you need it.
AND THE MOST SURPRISING, EVRYTHING YOU NEED FOR YOUR HAIR IS IN YOUR KITCHEN ( what you eat is what you put in your hair and skin) Nobody can drink a shampoo or eat a relaxer because we all know these product are poisons.
WE CAN HAVE LONG, SOFT and BEAUTIFUL HAIR WITH a basic light oil, egg, honey and vinegar IF WE WANT. NO NEED TO GOING BROKE especially if you need the money for something else.
