Beauty: Hair Coloring Safety?

“”..But as much as we may love them, there’s no denying that all permanent hair colours contain a cocktail of chemicals–the trick is choosing the least toxic mix.

The most common – and dangerous – of these chemicals is probably PPDs (p-Phenylenediamine), which has been linked to bladder cancer, lung, kidney and nervous system disorders and severe allergic reactions. It’s almost impossible to formulate a hair colourant without PPDs, however; the main thing to watch for, in this case, is the concentration of the chemical. In mainstream supermarket brands, it can be as high as 5-6%, whereas for brands that claim to be natural, it can often be less than 1%, and yes, that difference does mean a lot: it’s the difference between, say, smoking a pack of cigarettes and being beside someone having a smoke.

Other chemicals to watch for include the following:


Which brand do you recommend?
“..If you’re a chemical ingredient junkie, here’s some of what should be avoided in conventional hair dyes: ammonia, peroxide, PPDs (para-phenylenediamines, the chemical that creates color and is widely thought to be carcinogenic), coal tar (the FDA issued a warning about it being a possible cancer risk back in 1993), lead, toluene and resorcinol…” Here’s a list of seven brands I’ve heard are quite pure. Most are widely available but I’m including their manufacturer’s websites so people can do their own research and ingredient-label-reading before using. Several of these brands are also available at, which has an interesting decision guide to help consumers make educated choices.

Using Natural Hair Dye to Cover Gray: 3 Things You Need to Know AUGUST 18, 2015
“..Using natural hair dye to cover gray completely is unrealistic.

Nor are you likely to achieve a highly specific, consistent shade of color every time. The technology simply doesn’t exist (yet) in the world of non-toxic chemicals. Accept it now, and make life much easier for yourself and those around you.

Ditch the Chemicals — 7 Ways to Color Your Hair Naturally BY Annmarie Skin Care
“…Coloring Your Hair Naturally

Turns out we can use a lot of natural ingredients—some of which we can find in our kitchens—to create new hair color. It depends on what color you’re looking for, how intense you want it, and how much time you want to spend.

Keep in mind that natural color products are not the same as chemical color products. They don’t usually last as long, you won’t be able to completely change your natural color, and the color may be slightly different than you imagined. (Of course, that often happens in the salon, too!)

It may take some time and experimentation to get the color you’re looking for, but meanwhile you’ll actually be doing something good for your hair.

A helpful tip: If you’re not sure you’re brave enough to try the following dyes on your entire head of hair, save some from your next trim or cut off a few locks and test a small amount of natural dye first.

Another helpful tip: Always rinse out your color with apple cider vinegar to help the color last longer. Try rinsing with a vinegar/water solution, or mix one-tablespoon apple cider vinegar with about a cup of water in a spray bottle and apply after coloring hair—don’t rinse.

If you’re not into making your own, there are a few brands of natural dye out there. Here are a few that look good to us:

Home Remedies for Dry Hair

Just to look classy in parties, people try various hair styles and harsh products, which damage the natural beauty of hair. It is necessary that hair problems, like hair fall, split ends, dry hair, dandruff, itchy scalp, etc. should be treated somehow to maintain proper health of hair. Dry hair is a very common problem in today’s generation. Instead of taking several hair treatments, try some natural home remedies.

“…Food Habits:

Unhealthy eating habits and excessive dependence on processed and junk foods can increase oiliness of skin and hair. Have a healthy and well-balanced diet with lots of vegetables, fruits and whole grains so that your body is supplied with all the important vitamins, minerals and nutrients for its proper functioning.

Overuse of Hair Products:

Excessive use of hair products like conditioners and hair masks and styling products like hair mousse, pomade, gels, hair sprays and failing to wash them off thoroughly often leads to increased oiliness, irritation and itchiness of scalp. Therefore, try to decrease the use of these artificial products loaded with chemicals as much as possible….”

Is the ‘No Shampoo’ Trend Healthy or Harmful? January 16, 2016
“..The idea is that over-shampooing your hair strips it of its natural oils. Dr. Lisa Donofrio, cosmetic surgeon and associate clinical professor of Dermatology at Yale University School of Medicine, told HealthDay News:1

” … [B]y leaving the natural oils on the hair, the hair doesn’t need any styling products … If you don’t apply any styling products, then there is no need to wash your hair. No products, no need to wash them out.”

Beyond this, there’s growing recognition that perhaps we’ve become too clean as a society. Your skin is teeming with bacteria and other microorganisms, much of it beneficial.

All of that washing may be disturbing this microbial balance. Not to mention, the shampoos many people lather on their scalps are chemical-laden and problematic in their own right.

Coconut Oil Is an Excellent Natural Hair Treatment

According to a study that compared mineral oil, sunflower oil, and coconut oil as possible products for nurturing and conditioning hair, coconut oil was the only oil that reduced protein loss for both damaged and undamaged hair.11 Researchers noted in the Journal of Cosmetic Science:12

“Coconut oil, being a triglyceride of lauric acid (principal fatty acid), has a high affinity for hair proteins and, because of its low molecular weight and straight linear chain, is able to penetrate inside the hair shaft.”

Part of the reason why coconut oil is so beneficial for your hair is that it’s hydrophobic, meaning it repels water. So when applied as a pre-wash conditioner, it inhibits the penetration of water into each strand, which would otherwise cause the cuticle, or surface of your hair shaft, to rise, making it prone to damage and breakage.

Furthermore, when applied as a pre-wash treatment, a small amount of the coconut oil is able to penetrate deeper into your hair shaft during the wash, when your hair fiber swells slightly. This can also explain why so many rave about the oil’s ability to prevent “the frizzies” in humid weather — this is another feature of its hydrophobic activity…

No-Shampoo Movement Offers New Alternative For Cleaning Hair

Tiffany Fisk makes her own homemade concoction, using baking soda and apple cider vinegar mixed with water to clean her hair.

“It’s been working better for my hair, my hairs been responding better and it just seems to be more lively and more full,” Fisk said

Some experts welcome the new trend…”

How To Wash with the No-Poo Method

Natural Shampoo Alternatives: Lather, Rinse, Do Not Repeat
“…According to a survey by Procter & Gamble, Americans lather up an average of 4.59 times a week, yet many hairstylists and dermatologists agree that’s way too often. Hair is much like fine fibers in our wardrobes: The more we wash it, the more it shows signs of wear and tear. The longer and thicker your hair, the longer it can go in between washings. But even short, thin hair can skip a day without any treatment. Commercial shampoos strip the scalp of its natural oils, known as sebum. When these natural oils are constantly stripped, our oil glands compensate by producing even more oil—leaving hair feeling greasy and in need of another wash the very next day.

Water and harsh detergents make up nearly all of a conventional shampoo’s formulation, with moisturizing emollients and plant extracts often adding up to no more than 1 percent. The detergent (the foam-producing ingredient that dissolves oil) is the most important ingredient to note when buying shampoos. Avoid detergents from the sulfate and glycol families: Sodium lauryl sulfate and propylene glycol are two of the worst offenders. Sodium lauryl sulfate, also used in engine degreasers, is a suspected carcinogen; propylene glycol, a compound used in aircraft deicing fluid, may cause skin irritations such as hives and allergic reactions, even in low doses.

Unfortunately, even organic shampoos can contain harsh ingredients. To find the best shampoos, choose those with low ratings on the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep database at (see a few of our favorites on the next page)…”

Sal: Once a week, I use this (Avocado Butter Pre-Shampoo Hair Treatment) on my hair instead of shampooing. It’s a small tube, but it goes a long way-meaning it lasts long. I use a toothpaste size piece and rinse it in my hair and then leave it after soaping my whole body. I then finally rinse it and it does wonders to my hair. I don’t even use gel the following day as it keeps that shine for a day or so. In the long run, you save $ from using hair styling gel and it’s natural.

Styling Gel?

Sal: I use this (Apricot Kernel Oil – 16 oz. (Edible)) on my hair for styling and it really helps keep my hair shining and moist. Plus, it’s natural!

Acne vulgaris. Prevention, Natural home remedies – Grow Youthful

“..Causes of acne

Acne is most common at puberty because the surge of hormones at this time stimulates the sebaceous (oil-producing glands) in the skin and makes them prone to blockages and infection. In adolescence, acne is usually caused by an increase in testosterone that occurs in both males and females at this time. The testosterone is associated with an enlargement of the sebaceous glands and an increase in sebum (waxy oil) production.
Several hormones have been linked to acne, including those that change around puberty and menstrual cycles. Taking pharmaceutical anabolic steroids (which mimic testosterone) can also cause acne.
Milk. Dairy products can cause acne. (3,5,9) Dairy products promote a hormone called insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1), and may also promote the production of some types of estrogens. IGF-1 levels peak in the teenage years, and may be abnormally high if you consume a lot of dairy products.
I suspect this may apply more to pasteurised dairy products rather than raw dairy products, but could not find any research to confirm this.
Sugar. A high-sugar, high-starch diet is associated with acne. (3,4)
Minor causes / triggers:
Oily processed foods.
Oil-based cosmetics.
Lack of fresh vegetables and fruit.


Natural Ways to Prevent Acne
Posted by Dr. Ben Kim on Nov 22, 2004
“..Here are several natural ways to help prevent acne:

Eat mainly whole, unprocessed foods, with vegetables making up at least 50% of the total volume of your diet. Specifics of your ideal diet depend on a variety of factors, including your body type, ethnic background, health history, and current health status.

Ensure regular intake of healthy foods that contain vitamin A.

The 2 MOST Common Causes Of Eczema And 7 Ways To REVERSE It! By Dr. Mark Hyman
“..Let me be more specific. If I had to narrow down eczema to two primary causes, I would say:

Leaky gut. Medically called “increased intestinal permeability”. This is a sign of a good gut gone bad. Leaky gut creates a low-grade inflammation in reaction to food particles (deemed foreign by your immune system) that literally leak through your gut wall. This causes food sensitivities, especially to gluten and dairy, which are the biggest food causes of eczema. Leaky gut also triggers many other health problems including fatigue, brain fog, headaches, depression, allergies, sinus problems, irritable bowel, reflux, joint pain, skin diseases such as acne and eczema, autoimmune diseases and more. Inflammation also causes weight gain which is triggered byinsulin resistance, food sensitivities and food allergies.
Abnormal gut flora. Getting rid of the overgrowth of bad bugs and yeast can make a huge difference to eliminate eczema. This is called dysbiosis. It is when the 3 pounds of bugs in your gut become out of balance driving inflammation. Yeast overgrowth is a common cause of eczema. It can be caused by a high-sugar, refined carb, low-fiber, processed diet. Yeast overgrowth also can be triggered by the use of antibiotics, steroids, hormones and even the birth control pill.

Natural Skin Health: Dermatologist’s Diet Recommendations for Healthy Skin

by Cynthia Bailey, M.D. on October 17, 2009 in Diet, Nutrition, & Natural Health

“The foods you eat should be packed with vitamins and minerals. When most of the foods you eat are nutritionally rich foods, your skin will be its healthiest and most beautiful! This is far from the magic bullet we all want in our fast paced lives; healthy eating requires real commitment.

What are nutritionally rich foods? Every time we buy manufactured food there’s nutritional information on the labels. In fact, we’re bombarded with nutritional information. Even junk foods list vitamin content. It’s confusing and so I use my common sense to figure out what foods are packed with vitamins and minerals. I recommend that the majority of what you eat be high nutrition foods including: ..

The Dermatologist’s Diet for Natural Skin Health

* Eat mostly vegetables, fruits and grains- organic or naturally farmed.
* Limit meats, fish, dairy and eggs-use them as an embellishment to your meal, not the main portion of what you eat-and be sure they’re from naturally farmed animals
* Use virgin olive oil
* Consider processed foods as a treat, not your main source of calories and nutrition”

How To Get Glowing Skin – Foods for Glowing Skin

‘Published on Jul 30, 2014

Most women (and some men) go to great lengths to make sure that their skin glows and they look attractive. However, beauty is skin deep and what you eat determines how you look. A diet rich in antioxidants and vitamins is considered good for your skin. But, if you are confused as to what food items you should eat, we give you a list of 10 foods that can make you more beautiful from within:

Sweet potatoes: They contain vitamin A which is anti-inflammatory and helps fight off acne-causing bacteria. It also has vitamin C which helps prevent acne and heals it if you already have it.
Pumpkin seeds: It is packed with zinc, an essential in the creation of new skin cells and an aid in protein synthesis and collagen formation. It controls the production of oil in the skin and adds colour and brightness to the complexion.

Apples: Vitamin C found in these fruit, helps to firm and tone the skin. It prevents free-radical damage, protects your skin cells and delays signs of ageing.

A study out of Europe found that pregnant women who ate at least four apples per week were 53 percent less likely to bear a child with doctor-confirmed asthma. And the same study that linked banana consumption to lowered asthma symptoms also found that children who drink apple juice are about 50 percent less likely to develop asthma symptoms.Learn more:

Beets: They are a great source of anthocyanins – a powerful antioxidant that reduces inflammation and slows down the ageing process and helps prevent wrinkles. Beetroot is also good for overall health.
Carrots: For the ultimate anti-ageing, wrinkle-fighting boost, add vegetables high in vitamin C like carrots in your diet which can protect and improve your skin. They are high in beta carotene which the body converts to vitamin A. Vitamin A is one of the most important nutrients for healthy skin. You can also make these anti-ageing potions using veggies.

Strawberries: Mashed strawberries mixed with honey, avocados or yoghurt can bring a healthy radiance to the skin. But you can also use the juicy red fruit to whiten teeth. Strawberries contain malic acid, a natural whitening agent.

Lemons: Lemons are rich in vitamin C, which plays an important role in the synthesis of collagen in the body. For this reason, the regular use of lemons – both internally as part of the diet and externally on the skin – can help keep your skin healthy and free from scars. You could also use lemons for skin problems like acne, blackheads, etc.

Tomatoes: Tomatoes have an antioxidant called lycopene which acts as a sunscreen from within and has anti-ageing properties too. Tomatoes are acidic in nature and applying their pulp to the pimple causes the skin to dry and the pores of the skin in the region get tightened.
Spinach: Spinach is loaded with antioxidants which can help reduce the onset of wrinkles making it a good anti-ageing product. It also strengthens your skin tissue and has anti-inflammatory properties which helps flush out the toxins.

Amla: The extract of amla is rich in Vitamin A. This vitamin is essential in collagen production, a compound that keeps the skin looking young and elastic.

Home Remedies to Solve Dry Skin Problems This Winter
Winter is a season that brings many pleasurable experiences, but dry skin is not one of them. It is one of the most common problems that people have to deal with during the winter days.

The skin tends to become drier due to the drop in the temperature and also humidity. This causes the skin to become dehydrated, leading to dry skin patches as well as irritation or itchiness.

Best Moisturizer for Dry Sensitive Skin

1. Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is one of the popular and effective treatments for dry skin during the winter months. It contains ample amounts of fatty acids that can compensate for any loss of moisture from the skin.

It also has protein as well as vitamin E that help retain moisture in your skin.

Also, its antioxidant property is good for your skin’s overall health. In addition, because this oil is nongreasy, it is easily absorbed by the skin.

* Warm up some coconut oil in a microwave for a few seconds and apply it on your skin before bathing. Massage it gently so that the oil penetrates into the skin. Wait 10 minutes, then take a bath or shower. Repeat this remedy once daily.

* When suffering from extremely dry skin, you can apply coconut on your somewhat damp skin after taking a bath.

2. Honey
Honey is considered another natural moisturizer loaded with antioxidant, antimicrobial and humectant properties.

Any of the following remedies can be used once daily:

* Before taking a bath or shower, rub some raw honey all over your body and massage gently using circular motions. Wait 10 minutes, then take a bath or shower.

* Mix equal amounts of honey and glycerin. Apply it on your hands, wait 10 minutes and then rinse it off with lukewarm water.

3. Olive Oil

Another effective remedy for dry skin is definitely olive oil. Olive oil contains antioxidants such as vitamin E that help neutralize the oxidant effect of free radicals that damage collagen, which causes skin dryness. It also works as a great natural moisturizer.

Plus, the healthy fatty acids in it can soothe and condition dry skin all over your body.

* For daily use, rub some lukewarm olive oil on your hands, legs and other areas with dry skin. Massage lightly using circular motions and wait 30 minutes. Take a shower to rinse it off, then apply a light moisturizer.

* For weekly use, add enough olive oil to 1 tablespoon of brown sugar to make a paste. Dampen your skin, then use this mixture as a gentle scrub. Leave it for 15 minutes, then wash it off with lukewarm water.

4. Milk Cream

Another milk-based product that can combat skin dryness is milk cream. The high-fat content in milk cream works as a natural moisturizer for dry skin.

The lactic acid in milk helps exfoliate the dry, dead surface of the skin and accelerates collagen production, too. It also helps maintain the proper pH balance of your skin.

* For daily use, rub some fresh milk cream on your dry skin. Allow it to sit for 10 minutes, then rinse it off thoroughly with lukewarm water.

* Another option for daily use is to thoroughly mix 1 teaspoon each of milk cream and milk. Stir in a few drops of lemon juice. Apply the paste on your face, hands, and legs. Leave it on for 15 minutes, then wash it off with water.

5. Aloe Vera

When it comes to skin dryness, aloe vera is just the ingredient that you need to make your skin soft and vibrant even during the winter season.

It acts as a wonderful moisturizer and improves your skin tone. It also relieves itchiness and prevents cracking and flaking associated with dry skin.

A study published in Skin Research and Technology reports that freeze-dried aloe vera extract is effective at improving skin hydration due to its humectant properties.

1. Extract the gel from an aloe vera leaf.
2. Apply it all over your body.
3. Massage for a few minutes to help the gel penetrate deep into the skin.
4. Wait 30 minutes, then rinse it off using lukewarm water.
5. Do this once or twice daily.



The Best Moisturizers for the Winter

Sal: I like to use Dr . Teal’s foot cream at night before putting sox on before going to bed. I put Johnson & Johnson’s Aloe Vera Baby Oil after most showers during cold winter days before going out to “trap” the heat. I put Now Solutions’ Vegetable Glycerine throughout the cold winter days (mostly on the very dry areas: elbow,hands, and knees).

“…Mum & my family kept encouraging me.I asked the Lord to give me a sign that the rash would dissappear without leaving any scars.& God gave me a sign..this very preacher who I despised tweeted to me(he hadn’t tweeted to anyone before that.I checked).I wasn’t even writing to him.I just tagged him to another brother’s post.He tweeted to me several times(God spoke to me through him)& once my faith returned..he stopped tweeting to me.I don’t agree with many things he preaches but I love him(I stopped listening to him few months later but I am thankful for him & I will always pray for him..a lot)bcoz God used him mightily to restore me.Around that time God gave him a mighty revelation & his 2014 animated video is top notch!It was on many pages this easter.It’s how Yeshua took our sin,death,curse, attack & condemnation(but no1 gave him the credit)

…God healed me completely.Drs had suggested a few blood test & the results were excellent.My skin is clean,baby soft & blemish free like it used to be(you won’t even know that something was ever wrong-my profile picture is the proof).He restored me & it was His love,grace,mercy & faithfulness alone that saved a wretched like me.So I do not agree with the excuse worldliness gives.Like I fell in the wrong company.They forced me to do so.No!I chose to leave my Heavenly Father inspite of knowing what He has done for me.I not only sinned against Yeshua but I committed transgression & I was guilty of iniquity.I committed adultery & idolatry both.I blew up everything.So naturally I was an easy target for the devil bcoz I wasn’t under Yeshua’s blood.So when the Holy Spirit convicts u of your sins do not delay to repent & return…my brothers & sisters.Be obedient & stay under Yeshua’s blood. Our God a Holy God…He desires obedience and repentance.And He will never tolerate sin.Nothing I do will be ever enough for the cross & price Yeshua paid for me…””

Being out in the Sun Too Long, without Sun Block will cause your skin to begin creasing up over a period of time. Tanning is also not very good for the skin.

Facial Movement will also cause wrinkles. Whenever you laugh, smile, squint, frown, etc, your face begins to create creases in the skin that over time, will turn into wrinkles.

Home Remedies for Burns – 8 Natural Treatments Mike Barrett by Mike Barrett
Posted on February 13, 2013
“..Natural Home Remedies for Burns

Aloe Vera – One of the primary go-to home remedies for sunburn, aloe vera is notorious for its soothing, cooling properties. To use aloe vera for burns, simply squeeze the juice out of an aloe vera plant and apply it to the burn. In addition to having a natural burn treatment right in your home, many other health benefits of aloe vera can be experienced as well. Alternatively, you can buy organic aloe vera gel at your local natural grocery market.

Egg Whites – You may have never tried this home remedy before, but it is actually a popular one. Simply separate the yolk from a couple eggs, and soak the burn in the egg whites. This ever-so-simple natural treatment could work instantly, and could leave you feeling pain-free forever after a few hours of application.

Baking Soda – Also resting among the more popular home remedies for burns, baking soda is another simple option that could dissipate the pain away. Just mix some baking soda with water to make a paste, and apply the paste to the burned area. After drying, rinse (literally) and repeat.

Aluminum Foil – Although a less “natural” remedy, using aluminum foil for burns is one of the top home remedies found on Earthclinic. After being burned, run the area under cold water. Afterwards, apply aluminum foil (shiny side) onto the burn. As many report on Earthclinic, pain may intensify upon applying the foil, but after about 30 minutes to an hour, the pain should subside if not entirely, then at least significantly.

Vinegar – A treatment used by countless individuals for years, vinegar has the potential to offer immediate relief. For treatment, just soak a cotton ball in white vinegar and apply to the burn. You might also do a compress soaked in vinegar and water. Working as an astringent and antiseptic, vinegar helps prevent infection by killing potential pathogens and helps burns to heal faster (potentially because of the pH factor).

Honey – Also harnessing antibiotic properties that can help prevent infection, honey can be a great natural burn treatment simply when applied to the area. You may also try placing honey on a gauze bandage and keeping it on throughout the day. If you go this route, change the bandage 3-4 times.

Tea Bags – Using tea bags as a natural burn treatment could certainly be the solution for you, but there are a few ways to go about this. One way is to place 2-3 tea bags under a spout of cold water, then applying the liquid. Alternatively, you may want to use 3-4 tea bags and make a mixture using 2 cups fresh mint leaves, and 4 cups boiling water, applying the liquid onto the burn with a cotton ball after letting it cool. Lastly, you can also make a stay-in-place poultice using 2-3 wet tea bags if you’re on the go. Try using black tea, as the tannic acid in in the tea can reduce pain significantly.

Lavender Essential Oil – Even used in some hospitals for burns, lavender essential oil is often recommended for both pain relief and to expedite the healing process. For treatment, you can either pour lavender oil onto a gauze or clean cloth and apply it (replacing the gauze every few hours), or you can spray the area with therapeutic grade lavender oil after exposing the burn to some cold water. Lavender has antibiotic, painkilling, and natural healing properties.
