  1. Help! I live in Ottawa, and just went natural. I did my Big Chop two days ago. I am having trouble finding hair products (leave-in conditioner, deep conditioner, ecostyler gel, etc.) Where in Ottawa can I find these?

    • Congrats on your big chop!!!! That’s amazing. So proud and the journey will be great. Products are the hard part…you will face trial and error but do not worry it will get better. So to Cleanse….try the Live Clean Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo at Shoppers (5.99 sale price), Moisture= Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner ($10 max for the family size at WalMart), Leave-in Moisture can be literally any conditioner diluted in water (so you can use the Hello Hydration in a spray bottle with filtered water) and to seal in the Moisture try olive oil. These products are the easiest to find in Ottawa…..and these are the basics.

      It may be better to start with the basics and the easiest items to find…..I don’t want to send you all over town either…so the Live Clean Shampoo can also be found at WalMart (6.99$ I think), the conditioner is there (the cheapest I’ve found for the size of the bottle) and of course Extra Virgin olive oil is at WalMart’s grocery section.
