Argan Oil Hair Treatment Reviews

March 4, 2016 | Posted in Argan Oil Hair Treatment Reviews | By

This is a must have to your hair and skin regime. The Argan oil is infused with Almond and Olive oil that makes your hair shine and retains moisture to keep your hair conditioned. A huge variety of advantages to Argan Oil that it is an absolute necessity to have in a home. Fun Fact, Argan oil is entirely uncommon as it’s just found in Argan trees that develop in Morocco and the Argan organic product can take up to 30 to 50 years to create from an Argan tree. So when utilizing it, remember that, it’s quite rare oil that has such positive advantages. My primary purpose behind Argan oil is the impacts it has for my hair. It assists with my male pattern baldness as I have less hair fall now after using Argan Oil and now I trust it assists with hair development as well. I match this with Intensive Hydrating Moroccan Argan Oil Hair Mask by Real Smoothness and you’re set for your all natural approach for hair growth and hair rejuvenation. The purpose behind utilizing Argan oil items is on the grounds that it provides great blood circulation to your scalp which is a huge component in hair growth.

The most effective method to use for hair loss:

1. Place a couple drops of Argan oil on fingertips and back rub it into the scalp in a roundabout movement.
2. Begin at the front hairline and work your way over the head and down every side and back.
3. Back rub oil in the zone that needs the most consideration for 10 to 15 minutes, you need to fortify blood stream to the scalp and hair follicles with the goal hair should become once more.
4. Do this no less than 3 times each week.Read more ›

Silky, smooth, and shiny! Its wonderful! Smell im not too happy with… kind of smells like something you would put on an animal (I don’t know how to explain it)! Pair this with Intensive Hydrating Moroccan Argan Oil Hair Mask by Real Smoothness and your hair will thank you! The shower cap is cute and fits nicely! I don’t see a use for it with this product as you put it roots to the ends on towel dried hair or dry hair…. but its nice to have on hand for other things. Pure Argan Oil blended with Almond Oil & Olive Oil is a perfect combination for dry, frizzy, color treated, sad hair like mine was. I use a small amount every day. It doesn’t over oil my hair like a lot of other after shower/dry hair products do! I noticed a difference after the first use. It is bottles nice. Mine came leaking but didn’t dump out completely.. I have had other oil do the same thing from sitting sideways. I am going with 4 stars but wish I could go with a 4.5 as it really is just the smell in my opinion I don’t lke. I am happy with this product over all! I received this product for free for my honest unbiased opinion. My mom will love this product line!

I have hair that stays full of static during the Fall/Winter months, which also causes terrible fly-aways. I’ve tried just about every product on the market from conditioners, serums, etc. I tried the product on my hair and it really worked wonders. It didn’t make my hair greasy and my hair actually feels healthier.

I like the fact that it isn’t greasy and it absorbs very quickly, instead of lying on the top of your skin like some other products I’ve tried.

I also tried it on the rough patches on my elbows – again, I’ve used a million types of lotions and potions to smooth it out. There is noticeable improvement and I think with prolonged use, it will really take care of it!

This morning I decided to start using it on my stretch marks that are over 20 yrs old. Hoping for a miracle but it’s worth a try!!

I received a sample for my honest review and hope my observations can help you make a buying decision.

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! I use this product in tandem with the Argan Oil Hair Mask and could NOT be happier! I have processed my hair with so much color over the past few years that it has dried out and become dull. I used the mask for a deep conditioning and then used the oil to add shine for after I dried and straightened my hair. This oil does not leave a greasy feeling residue on my hair nor does my hair LOOK like it has oil in it. A little bit goes a long way and I only need a pump or two for my hair and mine is long (to my mid back) so I feel this is also a great value because it will last so long.

*I received this product at a discount in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. I would pay full price for this product again.*

Moroccan Argan oil hair treatment is product for dry damaged hair. It has pure Argan oil, almond oil and olive oil which is a perfect combination for a great natural hair treatment. What this product does is makes that course damaged hair more manageable while restoring the natural beauty and shine, and because it’s a light weight formula it doesn’t weigh down your hair helps eliminate frizz all day. It’s easy to use and you don’t need a lot plus it comes with a satin cap to help with locking in that moisture during a treatment. I recieved this product free for my honest review
on October 1, 2015
On rainy days and occasions when I spent a lot of time outdoors, I am grateful to have Argan oil hair treatment as part of my regular hair care regimen–keeping my hair smooth and beautiful and minimizing risk of dispiriting ‘bad hair’ days. This oil has a pleasantly mild fragrance, and goes on without adding excessive gooeyness or stickiness–it’s just the right amount of oil to smooth my hair perfectly. This oil is a blend of Argan Oil, Almond Oil & Olive Oil, and they seem to work together harmoniously. I enjoy adding a small amount of this oil after each shampoo and conditioning, and it’s also wonderful as a touch-up on rainy or humid days. I’ve found a little bit of this goes a long, long way, giving my hair a beautiful shine.

Highly recommended!

I received a complementary sample of this argan oil hair treatment in exchange for an honest review.

This Argan Oil Leave in conditioning treatment has done wonders for my damaged and dry hair. My hair looks fantastic after using this product. I have natural curl, but most products or even brushing too much leave it looking like I have straight hair. With this product my curls are able to shine through without being weighed down. My hair is silky soft and well nourished.

Some days I don’t get a shower and I just work a little of this leave in conditioner through and my hair still looks great and feels fresh. My favorite way to use it though is right after the shower when my hair is still wet. I am not one to do much styling or fussing with my hair at all but it still looks and feels fabulous since using this treatment. I have a few Argan hair masks and while I love the deep conditioning they provide, I don’t always have the time to wait 10-15 minutes for the suggested treatment time.

The scent is pleasant and I find that a little goes a long way. I have long hair and use 2-3 pumps maximum. It does not feel greasy in your hair at all, but it is a bit greasy on the skin and harder to wash off my hands than I anticipated.

I received this item free for my honest, unbiased review. All opinions expressed are my own.

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon September 23, 2015
I received this product in exchange for my honest review. You can check my other reviews to see that receiving a product for free does not always result in a positive review.

I’m growing my hair long and am always looking for oils that will help keep my hair healthy and resistant to breakage. Argan oil is one of my favorites. Besides oils, this product also contains silicones, which help to create smoothness in hair and protect it, particularly in its wet or damp condition.

Here’s the full list of ingredients from the back of the bottle: cyclopentasiloxane, dimethicone, cyclomethicone, argania spinosa kernel oil, oleaeuropaea oil, prunus amygdalus dulcis oil, parfum, Cl 26100, Cl 47000.

The product comes in a dark bottle to help protect the ingredients. Once opened, it has a shelf life of 12 months; I doubt it will last that long with the way I’m using it. The scent is a little hard to describe. I detect definite notes of rosemary. It has a very “natural product” scent to it.

The benefits aren’t limited to hair. If you want the smoothest, softest skin, exfoliate first and then apply some of this oil all over; the feel is amazing. Highly recommended for skin and hair.

on September 11, 2015
This is some great stuff! I use this on towel dried hair right after a shower before I apply anything else. It smooths and makes my hair feel silky. I apply some mousse or gel afterwards for some hold. I can not say it has completely gotten rid of my frizz. I live in humid North Carolina and have very curly frizzy hair but it sure has reduced the frizzies I get drastically. It has also helped my curls stay spirally and bouncy even with the bit of frizz I still have. I love it. I received this at a discount to try and give an unbiased honest review.
on September 3, 2015
My hair is fine and dry plus is prone to split ends and frizz. I have not found any product that helps with this, most leave my hair too heavy or oily looking. I constantly have to wear my long hair in a ponytail or bun to hide the frizz. But after using this product I am amazed at how well it has tamed my hair and split ends.

I use it on dry hair by putting a few drops through my hair, concentrating on the ends. It smooths my split ends and leaves them soft and silky for the rest of the day.

On damp hair, I apply the oil and put my hair into a loose bun to dry. Afterward I let it down and I have beautiful, soft waves that are shiny and so gorgeous!

The oil is not heavy at all, it absorbs quickly and has a great fragrance to it. Afterwards I rub some into my hands and nails; it works great as a cuticle moisturizer!

I highly recommend this product if you have fine, dry, frizzy or lackluster hair. It works with both wet and dry hair and will leave it so soft and moisturized. And the generous sized bottle will last a long time!

I received this product at a discounted rate in exchange for my unbiased and honest review.

Intensive Hydrating Moroccan Argan Oil Hair Mask Reviews

March 4, 2016 | Posted in Hair Mask Reviews | By

I’ll be honest, I was about to pinterest my next hair cut and call it day. Yes it’s true, I saw the one where you tie your hair into a reverse ponytail and was going to chop it right off.
It was a complete rat’s nest. No matter how I brushed, it will always end up into a nappilicious mop of strands.
I happened to come across the mask for an exchange of an honest review. I can do honest. I knew my hair was the challenge everyone needed to see.
At this point, my hair has been dyed, bleached, and mistreated for the last 4 years. It was time for a drastic change but come on, the thought of cutting my hair after I waited for my hair to grow this long was daunting. In the end, I can say without a doubt the last thought was, “What could possibly go wrong, right?”
Well let me tell you, the mask came into a very securely packed and even came with a cute black and pink polka dot shower cap. I will not model the shower-cap, but I will say it was satin type. It’s cute in comparison to the plastic ones you buy at the drugstore. Anywho, as you could see my hair was a tangled mess that morning but even after I finished with my shower with normal routine, it was still bad.
I will say, long hair takes a LONG time to brush but mine is nearly to my behind, so it took about 20 mins to take out all the tangles.
I applied a generous amount of product into my hair, starting at the ends to the roots. And it the aroma is very nice and really loved the consistency. It felt rich and the blue microbeads, no idea what they were but no harm for me.
Applying took me about another 30 minutes, I went on my way and wore my shower cap too while I cooked breakfast and cleaned up. What should have only been 7 to 10 minutes turned into one hour, but no harm.

I have color treated thick hair. It likes to tangle in the back when I sleep. After using this product my hair was SO soft and smooth. The next morning my hair didn’t tangle like normal! This mask has Argan Oil which I live by! I have used other Argan Oil hair masks before and this one is up there with the best. I like to leave mine on for the whole time I am in the shower. First I shampoo (ring it out before applying) then apply this hair mask top with a cap and leave it on 20/30 minutes. I don’t have to use this every time I wash my hair just in between washes. If you have dandruff I recommend mixing just a small amount of tea tree oil with this mask also it helped me. When I rise It out feels like silk! This product smells great! The mask is thick but most hair masks are thick. The shower cap is cute stayed on nicely! Over all I am very happy with it! The price is great. The size is good. It will last me awhile. I will be purchasing when I run out. I received this product for free for my honest unbiased opinion. I will be recommending this to my mom who love Argan Oil hair care also!
I’m generally prety low-maintenance with my chin-length hair, but I recently dyed it so it needs a little more love than usual. This argan hair mask was a special treat!

Pros:
-has a light delicious scent, lovely but not overpowering
-thick and easy to apply to hair
-generous product size
-rinses clean, leaving hair feeling soft and silky without residue or heaviness
-includes shower cap to keep everything else clean during the 10 minutes you leave this on your hair

Cons:
-beneath the screw-off lid, there is a second “lid” (above which there is a mini spoon, presumably for application? I just used my fingers). Because this second “lid” fits so tightly into the container, it’s very hard to put back in place because the air builds up in container and there’s nowhere for it to escape. I’m just tossing this, since I don’t use the spoon and the second lid gets in the way.
-packaging doesn’t contain suggestions on how frequently to use this mask. The product itself is great, but assumes the user already knows how to use it.

While I personally wouldn’t pay more than $8 for this product, this is just because I’m a poor drugstore-beauty consumer. 🙂 It’s a great mask and I’m going to greatly enjoy using up the rest of it! I wish they would revise their packaging to make the inner lid easier to put back in place, and to add more instructions for use, but otherwise I’m thrilled.

I received a free sample of this product in exchange for testing, inspecting and reviewing it. I received no other compensation for my review and always give my honest and unbiased opinion of each product. I welcome your questions & comments on my experience.

This Moroccan Argan Oil hair mask by Real Smoothness has a beautiful delicate floral type fragrance. The cream is silky smooth, and applies easily to your scalp and hair. As you would expect from a company that’s called Real Smoothness. This works for all hair types and takes about 10 minutes to get the full essential oils into your scalp and to nourish and retain moisture. My main reason for this hair mask is that it has Argan Oil. It helped with my hair loss as I have less hair fall now and now I hope it helps with hair growth. I pair this with Pura d’or Hair Loss Prevention Premium Organic Shampoo, Brown and Blue, 16 Fluid Ounce and you’re set for your natural organic way to help prevent hair loss and have a beautiful shine at the same time. The reason for using Argan oil hair mask is because it provides good blood circulation to your scalp is a significant factor in hair re-growth. Also helps with retaining moisture and giving its shine. This also comes with a black satin hair cap with pink dots. Great to put on your hair while you let it the mask absorb into your hair.

Helpful tip if you’re trying to use this Argan Oil Hair Mask is to add a few drops of Argan oil Argan Oil Hair Treatment to the cream and massage into your head. This will make your hair mask super enriched with Argan Oil! I highly recommend using this Hair Mask, it made my hair soft and keeps it conditioned. This comes with a re-sealable package that has an 8.45 oz container and satin hair cap. Great for gifts as the presentation is wonderful. The container also comes with a nice spoon to help you spread the hair mask over your hair. This is a professional high-quality hair mask, that I highly recommend. I received this product at a discount in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

Really good mask! I will certainly buy it again!
on October 25, 2015
This seems to really help my hair regain moisture after I process it, so in that way it’s great and it smells pretty good too. However, I only got three applications out of this tub, and I only have medium-length fine hair, so I imagine I won’t be buying this again for the price and the number of uses I got from it. I’m guessing it’d only get one maybe two uses on thicker and longer hair.

I have fine.dry ends but my roots get greasy quickly. Years of dying has dried it and I have used so many products trying to repair it. From expensive salon products to dollar store discounts nothing worked. Pantene’s hair repair made my hair fall out in clumps this product however is amazing! It softened my ends without weighing the hair down plus it does not makes the roots more oily. I’m Caucasian but gave a sample to my mixed friend and she loved it. We both think it is better than Wen! It smells nice without being too perfumy. There was no instructions on how often to use it, so I used it twice the first two weeks and once a week after that. I have seen a considerable change in my hair. Well worth the money.
on September 4, 2015
My hair is 50-something, color treated and about 10% gray. I’m caucasian, with thick, coarse, wavy hair while growing up, but with hormonal fluctuations my hair’s texture has become even coarser and often fuzzy. Very tough to keep it under control and looking healthy.

This product was left on my hair for 15 minutes (5 -8minutes longer than recommended…) and rinsed out, following a shampooing with my usual moisturizing product. After styling it was softer and shinier, with less frizz throughout the day and into the next day.

I think if used daily it might just be a saving grace for my hair. The product has a pleasant scent and rinses cleanly. I didn’t get an oily build-up on my hair with one use, which is sometimes an issue for me using other Argan oil products.

I will be picking up more of this product and using it daily to see if it helps to balance things out for me. I recommend it to anyone with unruly, course textured hair who wants to restore softness and shine to their hair.

I received this product at a discounted rate in exchange for my unbiased and honest review.

on September 3, 2015
I currently use Argan oil on my dry damaged ends so I was excited to try the Real Smoothness Argan Oil hair mask. The mask is very thick and slick to the touch with occasional brown grainy bits. I tend to have oily roots so I only applied from ears down on my chin length hair. Instructions say steam improves the results and a satin cap is included but since I was going to be in a steamy shower I skipped the cap. I rinsed at the end of my shower and my hair was noticeably softer and smoother after use. I could tell by touch which area I had or had not used the mask. Next time I’d leave it on the lower, more damaged hair the same length of time then apply it to the rest of my hair maybe a minute or less before rinsing. The downside for me was the scent. Very heavily fragranced, it’s a very sweet smell that filled the entire shower. I could smell it in my hair for a few hours after use. For me the sweet cloying smell was almost sickening however I’m only taking one star because I feel like that’s a pretty personal issue and many people may actually find the strong, lasting scent to be a plus.

I received this mask free to test and review, these are my honest and unbiased opinions after testing.

Real Smoothness Unrefined Shea Butter Reviews

March 4, 2016 | Posted in Shea Butter Reviews | By

5.0 out of 5 starsGreat for Cuts, Burns, Sunburns, Rashes!

Great for Cuts, Burns, Sunburns, Rashes!, June 12, 2015
This review is from: Unrefined African Shea Butter by Real Smoothness ~ for Skin and Hair ~ Helps Treat Skin Conditions Like Eczema, Sunburns, Dark Spots & Blemishes ~ 1 Lb (Misc.)
I just got this great 100% unrefined African shea butter. I love this stuff. You can use it for so many different things. When you get it, it’s a big block of natural African shea butter which you can scrap some off. It comes with a bottle of natural oils (I got lavender) so you can mix it in and make is smell good. You can use shea butter on dry skin, hair, elbows, knees, burns, hives, rashes, minor cuts, bruises, sunburns, and so much more. It has some great healing properties that you can use to improve your health and skin. We use it on everything. I keep this in the bath room and mix it into lotions, shampoos, or sometimes just use straight shea butter on the skin or if we have any ailments. It works great and we love it. My grandmother has always told me to use shea butter on cuts, burns, etc. I always have and it helps a lot. I received this item complimentary or at a reduced price for my honest review. However, I only recommend products I truly love and use to my readers.
I am a huge fan of shea butter! I use it in several receipes as I am always making lotions, or salves. This brick of shea butter does not disappoint. It has the nutty earthy aroma which is normal for shea butter. This melted down evenly. I was able to easily blend it with other ingredients very easily. I had no issues with this product at all The best part is it came with a free bottle of lavender. Well that just gave me the go ahead to make some whipped shea butter lotion. I put the shea butter melted it down, with some coconut oil, and cocoa butter and then added about 30 drops of the lavender to make me some great lotion. All ingredients are good for the skin and will heal all dry skin issues.

This is my first time using a block product, and I chipped off a bit and let it warm in my hand, and then rubbed it on my shoulders where I have a big problem with bunched and tense muscles. I rubbed it in good and I did feel a difference in the muscles, they weren’t as tense as they usually, and I will take any progress I can get. I love that this product comes with a little vile of lavender oil, I love this scent as it helps to further relax you. Over all I am thrilled with this product and will continue to use it on my poor stiff shoulders!
I use this Shea Butter for arthiritis, my hair, skin. This shea butter has given me excellent results from the use of it. I’ve used other Shea Butters before but I really like the smoothness and creaminess of this shea butter product.
I have been using this shea butter for about a week. I wash my face in the morning and apply a very thin layer to my face. At night, I wash my face and apply a little more than I do in the morning. I was afraid that it would cause excessive oil and make my skin breakout. This has not been the case. It has proven to be a great moisturizer for my skin. My face feels amazing! My complexion is starting to even out a bit. I’m happy about this produce.

I was really excited when I opened the bag. There was a bottle of lavender oil inside. This is great because lavender oil is good for your skin as well. Using these two products together has been amazing. I like to mix a little of the lavender oil with the shea butter and put it on my son’s feet at night. This not only moisturizes his skin, but it also helps him to get a good night sleep.

To use it, I literally just put a tiny bit on my finger. I hold it in my hand for a few minutes. Then I rub my hands together vigorously to emulsify the product. A little goes a very long way.

I love this product. It is doing a great job. Tonight, I plan to start using it on my feet

I really like this Shea Butter. I like that it comes in a big block. I was able to cut it in half very easily and give my mom some of it. We both put it on our skin and it isn’t greasy at all. It absorbs into our skin really quickly. My mom and I have very dry skin and our skin was no longer dry after using this Shea butter. I also like that lavender oil it came with. Lavender oil can be mixed with many other essential oils or used by itself. I mixed a little in the Shea butter and it smelled so good mixed in. I also used some of the lavender oil in my diffuser. I will continue to use both the Shea butter and lavender oil for a long time. I recommend both of them and I hope you will try this set also.

Just received my Shea butter and I’m impressed, to say the least! I should’ve order 2 containers. The packaging was perfect/neat & shipping was fast. I will definitely purchase from them again for sure. I use Shea butter on my hair and skin. This will be a staple of mine. The price is AMAZING as well as the quality! The Shea butter itself is great! It’s creamy, not gritty and it smells nice. It’s a great product for the price. I have super sensitive skin so I’ve had a lot of products lotions and creams irritating my skin. I’ve found this does not. The bonus is the bottle of lavender essential oil.

I highly recommend this product.

on May 15, 2015
Great Seller! The Shea Butter was shipped early and item looked better than the picture! A HUGE, very well packaged Shea Butter arrived, along with lavender oil. It was firm, but soft enough to cut or break apart. I use shea butter for my whole body, even my face and hair! This is the best shea butter on the market, I will no longer buy another brand.”

Excellent product. Relieved pain in my knee. Recently had total knee replacement surgery and this stuff worked better then the 61.00 cream that my doctor prescribed….Love the results
 
on May 9, 2015
This is now my favorite brand of shea butter. I use this from head to toe, its a great moisturizer for your hair and skin. Thanks for thr great customer s
on November 17, 2015
I’m happy I chose this company’s product! It seems to be a fine quality (it’s my first experience with shea butter), priced significantly lower than most of the others, and they included a nice bottle of one of my favorite essential oils, lavender! Very cool. Id definately reccommend.
 
on October 2, 2015
This shea butter is much creamier than the other shea butter I have been using. I like the fact that it is white instead of yellow. This way I can dye it to match the soaps I make. Great product! I got this product at a discount, but that has no bearing on my review. I like to melt my shea butter down and add coconut oil and tea tree oil. The lavender essential oil gave my shea butter a really nice scent.

Rejuvenate Your Skin And Hair And Remain Youthful Forever

February 25, 2016 | Posted in Unrefined Shea Butter | By

Everyone loves smooth looking and beautiful hair and skin. You know – skin that is clear and free of blemishes.  Hair that’s healthy and shiny. That’s exactly why many Americans and households around the world have jars of skin cream or moisturizers stored somewhere in the medicine cabinet. I noticed there was always a sense of excitement on our friends face when shea butter was mention, so I decided to try it myself and noticed improvements in my skin. My husband raved about the comfort it brought to his sensitive skin after shaving. As you use this multi-purpose cream, you are likely to discover additional uses as we did.

Shea Butter unrefined has been effective at treating: dark scars, eczema, burns, rashes, acne, severely dry skin, chapped lips, skin discolorations, stretch marks, wrinkles, psoriasis, razor irritation and dry, damaged hair.

If you are like my family and most others, you usually purchase your skin and hair products from discount stores or one of the more common shopped department stores that lure you in with all their pretty bottles and infused smells, only to conclude after using them that they did not perform because they only contained a small fraction shea butter. It was mostly the other additives that made it smell good which lead to disappointment as you did not arrive any real benefits.

However when we started using Real Smoothness best unrefined Shea Butter from Ghana we notice real benefits. You see Real Smoothness Shea unrefined butter is unique because of its high content of non-saponifiable fats which act as a natural skin moisturizer. This raw shea butter moisturizes skin with all the essential elements it needs for balance, elasticity and tone and it can be mixed with other natural ingredients like coconut oil.

So I gave Amazon.com a try and I am not disappointed. But that not all, I got a bottle of Lavender oil as a bonus gift with my Real Smoothness Shea Butter.  The way the company packaged the organic unrefined shea butter makes it very easy for me mix it with any other oil that I may prefer ensuring me that I have 100 % of the shea and not a meager 10% or less. This is big, knowing that I am getting the true health benefits that the shea offers when used regularly. It also saves me money because I don’t have to use as much as I did with those other products containing only a minute amount of the shea butter.

And by the way I was also impressed by the incredible follow up by Real Smoothness Customer Service ensuring that I received my product. They did not just stop there; they also provided some amazing informative tips on other benefits of using my shea butter.

Now you may be thinking and I will be the first to admit I purchased some of the other skin products not only for the price, but for the smell and not paying enough attention to what the product contained. But now I am so truly impressed with this product.

Make Your Own Shea Butter Soap

February 23, 2016 | Posted in Beauty Recepies | By

The are several ways to use shea butter when making homemade soaps. If you want your soap to have fluffy lather, it’s recommended that you use shea butter at 3 – 5 percent of your entire recipe. Because shea butter has up to 11% of unsaponifiables, you don’t really have to use all that much in your recipe to make sure you get the benefits.

An important thing to consider is that shea butter is very sensitive to heat. So if you heat it wrong it will get grainy, no matter what product you use it in.  “From Nature With Love” has a whole article on avoiding crystallization and graininess when melting shea butter and other vegetable butters. These soaps could last about two years with the proper storage.  Keep in mind to prolong the shelf life of your Shea butter soaps after following the recipe, store the soaps in a cool place.

5% SHEA BUTTER SOAP

  • 50% olive oil
  • 20% coconut oil
  • 25% palm oil
  • 5% shea butter

Follow standard soap making procedures.

There is no “maximum” amount of shea butter you can use — but just like with any other butters, oils or additives, you have to keep in mind how your ingredients properties may affect the overall outcome of your soap. How much shea you add to get the desired affect depends on what other oils are in your formula.

Do Natural Hair Loss Remedies Have Any Real Relevance?

February 23, 2016 | Posted in Hair | By

The effectiveness of modern hair loss treatments is clear for all to see, but many people simply prefer not to use strong chemicals or non-natural substances.

If you fall into this category, does this mean you’ll just have to accept an ever-decreasing head of hair? The answer to this is an unequivocal NO!

Many natural hair loss remedies, both traditional and contemporary, have shown their worth in reducing and reversing hair loss. They are also perceived as being free from side effects and even deliver additional health benefits.

Why then, don’t we hear a lot more about these natural hair loss remedies? Simply because claims of cures cannot be made without FDA approval, and obtaining the FDA seal of approval involves lengthy and expensive scientific research that only major companies can afford. Even the biggest companies could not recoup the costs of such a process as no-one can control the rights to common natural substances such as basic foods and vitamins.

The big question however is, do natural hair loss remedies work? Firstly, hair growth at root level is a living part of the body that depends on sound nutrition, just like any other part of the body. The importance of vitamins, minerals and other nutritional elements in maintaining healthy hair cannot be disputed.

Secondly, the role of herbs and plants in treating numerous ailments is receiving increased recognition after years of neglect, and hair loss is no exception. Many herbal remedies for both internal and external use are offering new hope to people suffering from premature hair loss.

Thirdly, traditional hair loss remedies may still have something to offer. Ancient literature and folklore reveal that our ancestors went to great lengths to treat thinning hair. Some of the more acceptable traditional approaches are now being incorporated into many potential treatment regimes.

Choosing The Right Shampoo For Your Hair Type

February 9, 2016 | Posted in Hair | By

There are hundreds of shampoo’s out there, from the Suave you can purchase at the local pharmacy to designer shampoo’s like Kerastas and Philip B. that can only be purchased from speciality salons and stores. How do you choose?

First, know your hair type. It’s fairly easy to know what type of shampoo your hair needs if it’s permed or colored. If your hair is permed then most likely you’re seeing a stylist on a regular basis and he or she has suggested a product for you. If your hair is colored you will want a shampoo that will be gentle on the color and not strip it from your hair. Is your hair dry? Oily? Thin or full and coarse?

What affect do you want the shampoo to have on your hair? Be aware of claims made by shampoo manufacturers. The only thing regulated by the Food & Drug Administration is the list of ingredients on the back of the shampoo bottle. This means that manufacturers can claim their shampoos moisturize or add volume whether or not they do.

Herbs and botanicals smell great, but their affect on the hair has never been proven. Actually most shampoos and conditioners affect your hair only temporarily by leaving product behind on your hair after you wash. They have no long term effect on the condition of your hair at all.

Don’t believe that you have to use one manufacturers entire hair product line. It’s the same for skin care products. All shampoos clean the hair. All soaps clean the face. All conditioners leave a trace of product on your hair which help keep the cuticle smooth. All moisturizes soften and moisturize the skin. It doesn’t matter if you mix and match products, despite what they say.
