Shampoo eczema

A great organic shampoo for eczema and dry scalp is Zenz Therapys Chamomile shampoo. The organic products from Zenz Therapy are all based on aromatherapy and it's healing properties.

Using organic shampoo on dry and eczema troubled skin and scalp increases your chances of a soft and supple skin. Many of the harsh chemicals used in conventional hair care products tend to aggravate the problems. And if they do seem to help you can be sure it is only temporary as they treat the effect and not the cause. As long the cause is not treated, the problem will remain.

Chamomille is a plant that has been used for centuries for it's calming, soothing and healing effects on both mind and body. It is a gentle relaxant before bedtime and it calms the wild female hormones. When applied to the skin chamomile will soothe and heal and combined with oils it is an efficient moisturizer.

Skin care products based on aromatherapy has the double effect of nurturing your soul at the same time as your skin and the combination is unbeatable.

Protect your hair from the sun

Protect your hair from the strong summer sun with these simple tips.

1. Wear a hat. Very easy, yes, but most people don't do it.
2. Wear a spray on sunscreen for hair. There a plenty of brands out there that makes sunscreen for hair but it can be tricky to find one from an organic supplier. I still have not been able to find a good one so if you know of any I'd be delighted to hear from you. Using a leave in conditioner or treatment also helps protect the hair.
3. Frequently use treatments to strengthen and replenish the hair.
4. Tie your hair up in a knot or braid it when sunbathing if you don't want to wear a hat or headscarf. headscarves are a summer trend so use it to your advantage.

Organic make up

Lotus Make Up is 100% USDA certfied organic and contains no nasties such as parabens and other stuff. The make up feels really luxurious and comes in a glamorous packaging.

The mascara gives full and volumized lashes and the eye shadows can be used as eye liners with a drop of water on a skinny tiny brush. The foundation feels like silk on the skin and also has SPF 20. Lotus Pure Organics has a skin care range to match the make up but I havent tried it yet. Soon coming with a review.

Monday is fabulous

I really love getting in to work at 12, although it means working later in the evening I do enjoy a good sleep in. I have this vision of a perfect life where i wake up at 7 every morning to have a small breakfast with a cup of tea and a fashion magazine. Then go for a short walk and when I get home I'd do some morning yoga exercises. This never happens as I love snoozing for hours on end and the only occasion I do get up is when I have the laundry booked at 7am.

Maybe I can just turn it all around? Keep my snooze button on and do the morning stuff before I go to bed...

The husband is always playing video games and prefers me out of the way.

Yeah. From today I am replacing 2 1/2 men and CSI with yoga, tea and a walk.

Organic hair color

Pure and organic hair color is not a hairdressers dream. It consists of herbs and is very limited in shades and tones. Most of you know about henna, the herbal organic hair dye used as far back as in ancient Egypt. This is where we are going if we want completely organic hairdyes and it is just not good enough for me.

In my hair salon I work with an Italian brand of ammonia free hair dye. My options are unlimited when it comes to choosing the shades my clients desire and as it is ammonia free it does not make me sick.

When working with the larger brands of hair color such as Schwarzkopf, Wella, Matrix and Goldwell my nose gets runny and my head starts aching. With ammonia free hair dye this does not happen.

There are many different brands of ammonia free hair dye out there and depending on what country you reside in your options may vary but here are some of the brands I know of that are good.

Greenlight Luxury (Italy)
YO. Coloring (Italy)
Original & Mineral (Australia)
CHI Ionic (America)

For some reason many of the ammonia free hair dyes originates from Italy and I really have no idea why.

 Many of the larger brands are now producing ammonia free hair color but with limited options in shades such as Loreals Inoa and Schwarzkopfs Essential.

Why is ammonia free hair color better?

Ammonia is used to open the cuticle of the hair to deposit the color. The ammonia does this in a harsh way and leaves it wide open after the process of coloring is done with. It is also used as an activator for the color.

When using ammonia free hair color the color is deposited within the hair in a more gentle way .This also means a shinier, healthier and even stronger hair in the end as the hair structure is less tampered with. Although the color may fade a bit quicker this is so much better for the hair.
