I’m going all natur-elle

 

Contrary to popular belief, there are a range of natural products that can do the job of maintaining your beauty regime just aswell if not BETTER then your current commercial staples. There is almost no product that can’t be replaced with a natural one, which is just aswell as I’ve decided to go all natural. With my recent transition of going natural with my hair (meaning no texturisers, relaxers or chemicals of any kind), I’ve started to see the benefits of being completely natural.
Also, though it can be a little time consuming, it’s less maintenance overall.
I’m no longer having to go to the hairdressers to get them to treat my hair as I can do it at home, using my own homemade products. For styling I simply use a homemade blend of water, glycerine and essential oils to soften and lightly scent my hair and then I grease my scalp and hair with Coconut oil. Coconut Oil is great for the hair and skin, it aids with hair loss, strengthening the hair and imparting a natural sheen. It helps with loss of protein and provides a cooling sensation on the scalp for people with sensitive scalps. It’s also a very good conditioner and lessens the build up of dandruff. Melted and applied to the hair and used as a hot oil treatment is another great way to keep the hair soft and moisturised and the scalp healthy.

The following products can be made at home, using products from your kitchen cupboard! Do you know any great natural recipes for any of them? – if so post your recipes below for a chance for it to be featured in the next I’m going natur-elle blog post!
