Well infusionofstyles is developing some shampoos, we are not going to be left out of this hair care market!
What’s the price of beauty? For women of color, it’s steep. Prolonged exposure to products designed for black women’s hair is linked to serious health consequences like cancer, respiratory problems, obesity, myriad reproductive issues, and skin erosion. In fact, the organization Black Women for Wellness reveals in a shocking new study that hair care products for black women are some of the most toxic beauty products available.
Following a four-year investigation, the organization has released “Natural Evolutions: One Hair Story.” The report details not only the scary effects of relaxers, straighteners, and dyes, but also the fact that manufacturers are not even required to list noxious ingredients on product labels.

Since this is Black History Month. I'd thought I'd share this article on the harsh chemicals that we as a race have been using for many of years now to look beautiful, etc. I've been preaching this message for years now. Well here's the proof!
INFUSIONOFSTYLES uses natural, organic and fair trade ingredients! HOW ABOUT THAT!
A new report from the Environmental Working Group (EWG) suggests that women of color are using more beauty products containing potentially hazardous chemicals than other consumers.
The EWG’s Skin Deep database — which allows users to search products that are rated on a toxicity scale from one to 10 — has added 1,177 personal-care products marketed to black women. And while the percentage of “high hazard” products is about the same as the general public, fewer than 25 percent of products for black women scored low (or “safer”) on the scale, as compared with 40 percent marketed to the general public. This suggests that there’s less choice for black women, who may be bu...
There's a real movement happening right now in the natural beauty community -
A R M P I T S D E T O X. Think about it: this is an actual pit on your body that collects sweat and bacteria. And unless you're fist pumping in a SoulCycle class or dancing, the pit remains closed. Add in deodorants, which have often been criticized for containing aluminum and parabens, and you've got one gritty gulf. Because sleeveless weather is approaching and earth month is upon us, we consulted the experts to find out how you can detoxify your underarms ASAP.
Try Skin Brushing
While deodorant helps to block those foul scents, the aluminum and parabens found in it can clog the pores. "Using it without detoxing under your arms can suppress your natural immune system," noted Sharla Martin, the spa director at the Windsor Court Hotel in New Orleans.
Don't worry, because according to Margo Marrone, the founder of The Organic Pharmacy, "the armpit contains an army of lymp...
Try another take on grilled chicken. This Huli Huli Chicken has been on my list of things to make for years now. I am kicking myself for not making it until now. We loved it so much we grilled it three nights in a row.We have this amazing Hawaiian restaurant close by and it is called Mo’ Bettah’s. It is one of our favorite places to go. When my hubby took his first bite of this chicken he said it tastes exactly like our favorite restaurant. It is honestly one of the best things that we have grilled to date. The marinade is quick and easy with a few ingredients and the flavor will blow your mind.
I marinaded the chicken overnight so that it could soak up all that delicious flavor. You reserve some of the sauce to baste the chicken with while it grills. The sauce it thick and delicious and coats the chicken perfectly as it grills.
We love to grill at our house and this recipe needs to be at the top of your list! It was incredible grilled with ou...
Now what makes this so different from another grilled chicken recipe. Well it's inspired from Brazil with Honey. Garlic. Butter. Shrimp. YESSSS! I feel like dancing on Copacabana Beach, Carnival or better yet visting Salvador de Bahia's! Hint: that's the zumba in me!
First and foremost I LOVE SHRIMP!
You start out by tossing your shrimp with olive oil, ginger, garlic, cilantro, honey, jalapenos, cumin and cayenne. This is the marinade/sauce, but the shrimp really only needs to sit in the marinade for about ten minutes or so because you also cook it in the same marinade, which in turn creates a yummy sauce! Once you’ve cooked the shrimp a bit, you then add the butter and sort of caramelize that garlic…YUM. Then just finish up with the coconut milk and a generous handful of fresh basil.Serve with a side of rice, avocado, black beans and fried plantains.Done and DONE. It’s a super quick, no fuss meal, which I love on a Monday. BUT, and...
