Natural Hair Care
Premature hair loss is becoming a problem these days. However, we continue to treat our hair with harsh chemicals because the health risks aren't obvious. Treating hair naturally can be easy. Here are some tips for natural hair care:
Cleansing: Use a detergent-free cleanser. Liquid Castille Soap is a very good, mild soap for the hair. Herbs such as shikakai, amla and aritha have been used for centuries in India to gently clean the hair and scalp. Neem powder can be used when there are scalp problems such as dandruff or to treat lice. These herbs are used to make a "tea" which is then used to wash the hair.
Oil Treatments: Combine the following: 6 oz. fractionated coconut oil, 3 oz. Monoi de Tahiti, 1 oz. castor oil, 2 oz. jojoba, 2 oz. emu oil and 2 oz. shea oil. When ready to use, heat the oils in a double boiler and apply to dampened hair and scalp. Wrap with a hot towel and allow it to sit for 20 minutes. Wash with Liquid Castille Soap (rosemary essential oil can be added).
"Each time I use your Web site, I am thrilled with how complex and thorough the information is and yet how intuitive and simple the site is to use. I do the majority of my shopping online and work as part of a huge global company's knowledge distribution arm, so I review and use lots of sites. The FNWL site is the best I have encountered from a consumer prospective. It must take an incredible amount of resources to maintain and I just want to say thank you for going to that level of effort! I have learned so much from reading the detailed product information and loved the items I've purchased. Thank you!"
