Straight Hair at the Cost of Fibroids and Steaming, part 2

Thanks for joining us this week on the Sisters of Flow!

We recap on how guys instinctively know we’re ovulating and what else do we do that says, “I’m ovulating!”

This week: Ayurveda and the doshas as it relates to the cycle.  There are some differences in the dosha profiles and what symptoms might present from the imbalances.  A new study has come out and there just might be a correlation of using hair relaxers and the prevalence of uterine fibroids among Black women.  Lastly, we just had to continue the discussion on vaginal steaming!  What do Tia and Tamara Mowry and Gwyneth Paltrow think about steaming? Also, why would one not get vaginal steaming?

Here are links mentioned in this week’s episode:
