Natural Hair Care Products For Healthy Living
Natural hair care products that are free from SLS, Pegs and sulphates are in big demand. Hair care is going au natural, boasting of herbal ingredients and natural oils. Herbal shampoos and conditioners promise to keep hair healthy and do not strip away natural oils that protect them. Organic hair care is the new wave of hair product to enter the hair market. Although many would swear by the more commercial brands as being more effective, there are those who are happy to sacrifice foam for ferns! Natural hair care made with herbs and butters, essential oils and aromatic waters will not foam as more mainstream product would do. The natural detergents are much gentler on the hair and may not lather as well but rest assured they cleanse just as thoroughly and do not strip the hair of its natural oils which are the best part. Cold pressed and unrefined oils whether nut oils, seed oils, flower oils and more, seem also to be a huge demand for both hair and skin care. This is massaged three to four times a week into the scalp and left overnight or even for a few days to nourish and replenish the hair and scalp. Jojoba oil is wonderful oil for hair too, and is particularly popular for Afro hair, as is Shea butter. The Really Good Hair oil has been formulated with an effective blend of five nourishing oils. It contains the well-known Argan and Virgin Coconut oils known for their hair strengthening properties. This has been blended with the vitamin E rich Avocado oil and Sweet Almond oil to replenish and restore its shine and moisture. The most important herb in this blend is the Ayurvedic triple infused herb Brahmi and Neem. Brahmi is very rich in antioxidants and helps boost hair growth and hair discolouration. Brahmi is able to nourish the hair roots and promote healthier growth and Neem will promote a healthier scalp and is extremely beneficial for thinning hair. Fragrances like the gorgeous Indian Jasmine essential oil, the Really Good Hair oil is a superb combination of the very best oils are used to ensure your hair is left beautifully conditioned, healthier and stronger. The process of massaging the oil into the hair is also most important as this is where you can help stimulate hair growth and rejuvenate the hair follicles. Indian head massage is a treatment where the masseuse applies oils for you and is part of many spa menus these days. Whilst massaging hair oil, be sure to part your hair and distribute the oil equally to all parts of the scalp, from the back to the crown and to the temples. Another great tip is to wrap a steaming hot towel around the head; this opens the follicles and the oil seeps in deeply. Warm oil is also preferable to cold oil as this sinks into the skin much more easily and provides a very therapeutic sensation too.
