Natural Beauty by a Natural Girl

My shop was featured on Etsy Journal! Read the full interview here! https://blog.etsy.com/en/featured-shop-joshica-beauty/

My name is Joshica and I'm a wife, a mother and a naturalista. I was born and raised in Prince George's County, Maryland and currently live in Los Angeles, California. JOSHICA BEAUTY got it's start in 2015 with me starting my natural hair journey or "going natural", which means, I stopped wearing hair weaves, wigs and using chemical straighteners in my hair and started wearing my natural afro-textured natural hair. That may not seem like a big deal to some people, but it was a lifesyle change for me because I no longer looked to the main stream media to show me how I should look, instead I redefined what I consider beautiful by embracing my own natural beauty and wearing my natural hair proudly.

Another turning point was during my pregnancy; I realized how important it was to use products that were free of harmful chemicals. I became aware of the harmful chemicals that exist in some of the food, water, hair and skin care. During my pregnancy I made sure that I ate healthy organic foods and avoided products that contained a lot of sugar, salt, genetically modified organisms and pesticides. I believe this is the reason I had such an amazing pregnancy, however, I was surprised to find that there is a numerous amount of products on the market for babies and adults, some of which are trusted household brands, that contained carcinogenic ingredients such as parabens, sulfates and phthalates...

Natural beauty by a natural woman. Paraben, Sulfate and Phthalates…Free.

I'm a wife, a mother and I'm proud to say that I'm a natural girl. It wasn't until I was pregnant with my son that I became aware of the harmful chemicals that can exist in our food, hair and skin care. During my pregnancy I made sure that I ate healthy organic foods and avoided products that contained harmful chemicals. I believe this is the reason I had such an amazing pregnancy. However, I was surprised to find that there were many products on the market, some of which were my favorite brands, that contained harmful chemicals such as parabens, sulfates and phthalates. Even some brands that claimed to be suitable for babies contained harmful chemicals.

Also, after the birth of my son I experienced post-pardom shedding and noticed the texture of my hair had changed. I was freaking out because I thought that I was going bald. I quickly threw away all my hair care products that contained dangerous chemicals along with products that were not suitable for my natural kinky-curly hair and began my natural hair routine. That was when I started to formulate a natural hair product using only natural butter and oils in order to restore my thick texture and regrow my hair. Needless to say, my hair has grown back and my beautiful kinky-curly texture is back to normal.

In the end, I decided to make my own products, free of harmful chemicals, products that me and baby can use. I am proud to say that all of my products are made with 100% natural ingredients and are all handmade.
