Onion Rinse: Yay or Nay?

The onion rinse is one of many natural hair growth remedies that are highly suggested and praised for actually working.  However, nobody seems to mention the draw back of the onion rinse.  Yes, it’s smelly, but you can get used to it or do it at night and wash your hair in the morning.  The problem with the onion rinse is it’s only good for two days and then it begins to go bad.  Like molding bad.  Cheers for fresh onion. If you’ve cooked with fresh onion before, then you know that you have to be careful with it.  Fresh onion will cause a dish to go bad or mold sooner than it ought to if certain precautions are not taken.  You do NOT put a previously used utensil in a dish with fresh onion unless your intention was to through it away the next day.  This is the #1 problem with the onion rinse.  For maximum potency and benefits the rinse must be fresh, but a freshly brewed rinse doesn’t last more than 2 days.  That’s a waste of a perfectly good onion.  Just saying. Yes, onions are high in sulfur.  Don’t get me wrong sulfur is very good […]

So You Went A Little Overboard: Repairing Damage

Hair damage is enough to give anybody heart palpitations.  Sometimes we will spend days trying to fix hair damage.  Whether the damage is caused by chemicals, heat, or neglect, before starting from scratch try some of these remedies to get your hair back. Baking Soda and Conditioner I usually do a 75% baking soda 25% conditioner mix and I mix them until I have a creamy consistency.  As you all know, if your hair isn’t straight buying products can be a true hassle.  Particularly buying styling products.  Since switching to all natural organics products, I have a lot of let over conditioners.  So take my old conditioners that no longer do anything for my hair and mix them with baking soda.  I do this treatment once a month to remove any impurities and build up my hair may have accumulated.   I recommend you only leave this on for at most an hour the first time because it can have a slight tingling/burning sensation for the first 5 minutes.  There are times when we think we’ve done irreversible damage to our hair, but really it’s just a bad case of build up.  Build up will cause your hair to act all […]

The Run Down: Minerals and Vitamins

          I decided to do a rundown of on the vitamins and minerals that can be found in our products.  Though we hear that certain herbs are great for this and that, rarely do we hear the why.  What makes one combination herbs better than another combination?  Well it’s the vitamin and mineral content within a specific combination of herbs.  If the combination of herbs isn’t right then they can cancel out properties of “weaker” herbs.  The same concept applies for vitamins and minerals ingested or topically applied.  Too much of a good thing either gets thrown off, canceled out by something else, or wreaks havoc on your system.  We work to make sure our products are balanced and healthy.  Here’s the why behind some of our ingredient choices: I.  Iron: It carries oxygen to the scalp and promotes growth by helping with blood circulation.  Blood circulation is essential for carrying nutrients to every part of your body. II.  D: We usually get this from the sun.  It helps with the hair follicle life cycle.  However, during winter and rainy season especially, we need products with vitamin D to supplement the lack of it due to […]
