My Herbs Blog
I am currently in the process of writing a book about Herbal and Natural remedies. Since I am already writing thousands of words a day, my blog posts are going to be a bit short for a time. I will be posting my recent videos as my post, and hope you enjoy them.
I made a video today on how to take care of your hair naturally. This may be old news to some of you, but hopefully it is new news for some. When I learned about going more natural, and cutting out the harsh chemicals on my scalp, it was certainly new news for me. I thought that if something was packaged in a pretty bottle than it was good, right?
Fortunately I had no choice but to seek some kind of alternative way for caring for my hair and scalp because I was experiencing dry, flaky, irritated skin. In fact some spots were down right itchy. I thought it was my diet, and worked on my diet with great care, but I have found that even with a perfect diet, chemicals being habitually rubbed onto the skin is bound to build up and cause some kind of irritation.
So I cut out the sulfate shampoo, went through a period of cleansing my hair and scalp where my hair looked horrible. I stopped dying my hair with chemicals. I stopped using chemical products on my hair, and went au natural. I am really happy with that choice! Why? Same reason I continue to eat differently than most of the population- it makes me feel really good. I'd rather feel good, than "look good." No that's not right. I'd rather feel good long term than satisfy some short term gain.
Here is my video where I talk a bit more on my natural hair care routine. P.S. I use Rosemary essential oils to enhance my hair growth. Only natural brands- like Young Living. I also like Starwest and Mountain Rose Herbs has great oils. You can click on Mountain Rose Herbs (banner) in my footer to search their oil collection.
