The necessary basics

My goal is to share ALL the knowledge I have obtained over the last nine years about hair, skin and nails with everyone who is "Mane conscious"!

Listed below is some of my favorite all natural foundation products.  These items can be purchased at any local grocery store or neighborhood health food store.  You won't go wrong purchasing any of these products.

Each item can be used alone, in combination, or with other beauty products.  It is time to move away from putting products on, and in our bodies that contain harmful ingredients. Take the time to read the ingredient label on the product you buy.   Try to move away from hair products containing petroleum, mineral oil and paraffin because they coat and smother the hair and scalp.

Get going and build up your arsenal!  In order to try these great all natural home remedies you need to have product on hand.  From the top of your head to the bottom of your feet I have a natural recipe or regimen just for you! :)

All natural, inexpensive and effective!

Coconut oil - Is exceptional when it comes to hair.  It's awesome for hair oil washes, conditioners and even foot massages.
Honey - A natural humectant that promotes retention of moisture.  It is excellent when used to condition hair or used as a sweetener in your tea.
Jojoba oil - Is extremely similar to the human skin oil sebum.  Its good for the skin and scalp.
Olive Oil - Extra virgin olive oil is versatile and can be used on hair, skin, nails, and can be eaten.
Shea butter - A great moisturizer for hair and skin.  It has been know to relieve dry skin associated with eczema.

Today's tip:  Chlorine and some soap can be brutal on skin striping away the natural oil; To combat that just add a few drops of olive oil to your bath water.

I am particularly interested in the Shea Butter for the treatment of eczema. Should I look for a certain brand? I saw some containers for sale at a festival but was hesitant to purchase them. What should the consistency look like?

P.S. Is there a way to delete a comment when you make a mistake?! =)

I suffered from eczema for years but thank God I've been free from that for over six years now. I will post an article on my regmine and how I beat eczema by using all natural herbs, oils and butters!

Well, obviously I had not read your article on Shea Butter when I wrote this comment. I have now and am better informed. I am glad I didn't purchase the Shea Butter at the festival. It was a deeper yellow color so it must have had some additives.
