How to Taking Care of Your Natural Hair

We have about 100,000 hairs on our heads. Dry and curly hair types are usually more fragile than straight hair, so you'll need to be especially careful about using heat styling products. Shampoos made for dry hair and hair conditioners can help. Healthy, attractive hair should shine. Whether your hair is long or short, light or dark, it should look smooth, silky and shiny. Hair that is dull, dry, brittle or frizzy is unhealthy and unattractive.

Herbal Care for Your Natural Hair

Herbal products care for the human hair gently, with less risk of potentially harmful or harsh chemicals and synthetics. Part of a holistic view of our body's health includes the products that you put on your hair and skin. The hair needs regular cleansing to remain healthy and to restore lost oils. Many herbs have been known for their cleansing, toning and moisturizing properties for centuries.

Why Natural Herbal Products?

In recent years, more concern has arisen about potential dangers of over-processed ingredients in skin and hair care products. Products with a focus on natural, certified organic, organic or wildcrafted ingredients, especially herbal extracts, lessen our dependency on harsh chemical additives, are kinder to the environment and utilize our renewable energy resources.
