    Avocado butter! Avocados are supposed to be amazing for your body so I can imagine that they are just as amazing for your hair.

    -Which article/feature did you like most in any past edition of Natural Bloom? I especially like the vintage styles with autumn features, I like to try them out

  2. Hello and thank you for this giveaway.

    -What product (apart from those listed above) would you like to try from Sheabutter Cottage?
    The products included in the giveaway are awesome enough but I would like to try the Avocado butter. This year I am finishing up my stash of purchased products and will try my hand at homemade.

    -Which article/feature did you like most in any past edition of Natural Bloom?
    I enjoyed and was thoroughly inspired by the "Style is personal" feature with Kristal of the Feisty House. I love that it embodies the spirit of a natural who is completely in tune with her individual fashion sense.

    - Would you prefer rosewater or rosemary hydrosol
    Both sound heavenly but I think I would prefer the rosewater.

    Thanks!

  6. 1 The avocado butter, sounds heavenly!

    2 The ups & downs of the natural hair journey. I am only a week into this & trying to figure everything out. So this helped with knowing what to expect, and gave some encouragement.

    3 I think either one would be awesome, but I guess I'll pick the rosewater.

    Thank you!

  13. 1. What product (apart from those listed above) would you like to try from Sheabutter Cottage?

    I'm really curious about the Kombo Butter and would eventually like to try it. Here in Jamaica, we use Nutmeg to flavour various dishes. It never dawned on me that it could be made into butter, and that the butter had properties in it that are excellent for dry or irritated skin. (It would definitely help with my eczema)

    2. Which article/feature did you like most in any past edition of Natural Bloom?

    The article I liked the most was Ethiopian Hair Secrets by Alice of Alice in Nappyland in the November 2011 Issue. I'm always curious about different hair treatments and freshly churned butter was definitely new to me!! Who knew!

    3. Would you prefer rosewater or rosemary hydrosol?

    I'd prefer the Rosemary Hydrosol. I like the many benefits of Rosemary.

    Thank You! :)

    -Which article/feature did you like most in any past edition of Natural Bloom?
    I liked the Buyer Beware article as sometimes I forget the risks of buying, especially online and get enticed by lovely sounding products/blurb. I particularly liked how you followed with an interview with Laquita of Bobeam, who runs her business in such a way that it is always a pleasure buying from her.

    I think the hydrosol please.

    My favorite article has always been 'Why is my hair breaking?' in edition 1. I absolutely love this article because it really explained to me the damages I was doing to my hair even though I didn't even notice it. It ended up helping me reduce my hair breakage and giving me tips on how to help my hair progress in my hair journey.

  60. I am going to answer with a rhyme (cant blame sister for trying)

    1)The product I would like to try,
    Is the MANGO BUTTER
    Thinking of its delightful smell,
    Makes my heart flutter.

    2)The article I like the most in Natural bloom,
    was "THE UP AND DOWNS OF NATURAL HAIR"
    It did not give me a false sense of hope,
    As the stories were just and fair.

    3)Finally I prefer the ROSEMARY WATER,
    Because I heard its results are divine,
    It has many good uses,
    Such as hydrating skin and giving hair shine.
