New Ingredients to Try

3 Jul

Always using EVOO and coconut oil can be boring and/or a drag. Here is some new ingredients (you may have already know of) to get your hands on to spice up your natural hair life!!

Organic Copaiba Oil – Copaiba Oil, is a rich natural oil with a slightly spicy somewhat woody aroma which has the ability to soothe and soften dry, oily and even combination skin. It is also good for rubbing on the scalp to relieve dandruff, and is best used in SMALL doses (diluted in essential oils).

Ojon Palm Nut Oil-Ojon palm nut oil has very restorative benefits to hair and smells like incense. I absolutely love Ojon–even though it is very pricy. But the oil is something different to try, and it is very moisturizing.

Amla oi/Neem oil – Amla oil is used best as a hair tonic. Used in Ayurvedic practices in India, it can be used to strengthen hair at the root and stimulate hair growth. No wonder Indian women have such long, strong hair!

Pure amla oil can be applied directly to wet hair immediately after washing and worked through with the fingers, but amla oil is also an ingredient in some commercial hair conditioners, particularly those that are prepared using Ayurvedic recipes.
Neem oil is also another Ayurvedic oil.Used as hair oil neem promotes shiny, healthy hair, combats dryness, prevents premature graying and may even help with some forms of hair loss.

Raw Tucuma Butter – A light colored butter is obtained from the seeds of the Tucumã Palm tree which are wild harvested, fairly traded and the butter removed without the use of harmful chemicals or damaging heat.

This butter is naturally scented… it is just gorgeous, raw and earthy! I adore it!!! Nature’s cross between butter pecan ice cream and a vanilla waffle cone. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

In addition to smelling delicious, this fruit provides a healing protective film that allows your skin to maintain moisture while resisting dryness from environmental influences. This treasure also leaves a natural gloss to dry, damaged hair!

Seeds from the Tucumã Palm Tree have been used for centuries:

* Crafted into rings to signify marriage among the poor
* As a symbol of honor among the freedom fighters for ages
* Steamed fruit are eaten and is traditionally made into ice cream
* Cracked open to drink the clear, sweet liquid inside called the “wine of tucumã”

Benefits of use:
* Excellent emollient, helps skin retain water by applying protective film
* Rich in vitamin A…3x’s than a carrot!
* Leaves the skin soft to the touch and velvety smooth
* Soothes the scalp while adding gloss and shine to tresses
* Overflowing with skin healing omegas 3.6.9
