Experts all over the world are encouraging us to use organic cosmetics. They are helping women throughout the world take a second look at traditional cosmetics, which are so full of dangerous ingredients. These conventional cosmetics contain large quantities of petroleum-based ingredients like oestrogens, parabens and paraffin.
All these can be extremely harmful to the human body as they’re highly saturated and it may take a lot of time to eliminate them from the system. On the other hand, organic cosmetics are far better as they’re not only less expensive, but also produce better results.
What’s more, organic cosmetics are readily available in every home as many of them, like natural oils, are commonly used in day-to-day meal preparations! We all know that cooking oil, which is commonly used for preparing meals at home is also great for hair growth because of its active ingredients.
In this article we’ll take you over the wonderful hair related benefits offered by 4 special oils. You’ll learn how you can make hair more beautiful and healthy without spending a lot of money on branded shampoos and cosmetic hair-care products.
As mentioned earlier, cosmetic products may contain very harmful ingredients. You should be all the more careful with them as human skin can easily absorb anything applied directly onto it, via the capillary veins connected to the bloodstream.
Sweet almond oil
This oil works very well for dry hair and prevents split ends. You can either apply it by gently massaging it onto the hair ends, or even directly onto the scalp. Make sure that you give yourself a nice massage so that the nutrients contained in the oil penetrate into your scalp. Putting on a plastic hat after its application can be of great help as it’ll keep the heat inside and make the oil work even better. Allow the oil to sit for around an hour and then wash your hair like you normally do with shampoo. Use an organic shampoo if possible.
