How to have Healthy and Beautiful Hair the Inexpensive and Natural Way

As I have shared with you all, my passion for eating living green beings, such as veggies, came after a bout with a short period of sickness and lack of energy.  I found out that, at least for me, the connection was diet.  I had always eaten right, but not as well as possible.  These days I have learned to stick with fruits, vegetables, whole grain and the other God made things.  This might be the reason why my hair is healthy.  However, I have also added a series of natural oils and spices to my hair care routine.  In this article Wellness by Nature will look at some of these products, which most likely are already in your pantry.

I cook with sesame oil and learned to use it when I lived in Hawaii – yes, Hawaii is in my opinion paradise on Earth.  My Polynesian and Pilipino friends had long and beautiful hair so I asked them how they did it.  The reply was always the same – oils.  We will look at some of these oils.

Coconut oil: unrefined coconut oil is excellent for individuals who eat a lot of vegetables.  Vegans lack this medium – a chain of fatty acids and this oil provides healthy fat.  This fat turns into energy.  This oil leaves my hair loose and fluffy.

How to apply: place 5 to 10 tablespoons on your scalp.  Massage the oil in gently.  Cover with a plastic shower cap.  Let it sit for one hour (I do this when I clean my house) Shampoo and style as always.

Olive Oil: this is one of the most stable vegetable oils and it is rich in Vitamin E.  In fact, ¾ of this oil is monosaturated so it lowers bad cholesterol and leaves good cholesterol undisturbed.

How to apply: Use 1/3 to ½ of cup at room temperature.  Massage into your hair.  Cover hair with a shower cap and let it sit for ½ an hour.  Shampoo and style as always.

Sesame oil: rich in natural antioxidants, this even helps lower cholesterol.  This oil leaves my hair shiny and beautiful, like my Hawaiian friends.

How to apply: place about 10 drops in your hair before showering.  Cover with a plastic shower cap.  Let it sit for 20 minutes.  Shampoo as always.

Warning: sesame oil might not agree with people who suffer from food sensitivities so please speak with your physician.

A gift to you:

While you are diligently making guacamole, sit ½ of a ripe avocado to the side.  Mix with 2 tablespoons of any of these oils.  Massage into your oil, cover and leave it for 20 minutes.  Shampoo and style as usual.  Avocados are rich in vitamins and your hair will love it!

Well friends, grab some good oils, start using them in your hair and you will see and feel the difference.  I usually do these applications twice a month and add variety.  Just like exercise, I recommend changes in routines so that the body will not become use to one – variety is a good thing so be flexible.
