Natural Hair Care 19

Natural Hair Care 19



Our society is​ becoming more and more obsessed with how we​ look. it​ is​ becoming common place for​ people to​ have surgical procedures to​ alter some portion of​ their body or​ face that they are not happy with. People are in​ constant search for​ products to​ make them look and feel younger. Over time we​ are going to​ start looking like carbon copies of​ each other. I ​ am a​ believer that the​ aging process is​ inevitable and a​ part of​ our life that we​ should embrace rather than fight.
My family has been blessed with the​ genes that keep us looking younger than our years. My mother and sister and I ​ are often thought to​ be younger than what we​ are. I ​ contribute this more to​ our nutritional upbringing than to​ anything else. we​ grew up on​ a​ farm. we​ did not have a​ great deal of​ money so most of​ the​ food we​ consumed was what was raised in​ the​ garden as​ well as​ meat that was raised in​ the​ barn. Our beauty products were mainly made by our mother from recipes that were given to​ her by her grandmother. we​ had natural hair care and facial products long before the​ current craze.
When we​ were growing up the​ big hair look was in. to​ achieve the​ fullness that was popular a​ great deal of​ styling gel and hair spray was required. we​ never had to​ buy any of​ these products because my mother made them. Creating natural hair care products was part of​ our chores. My mother had wonderful perennial gardens. the​ plants however were not just for​ beauty; she used them to​ make skin lotions as​ well as​ natural hair care products. Flax was the​ main plant that was used for​ the​ hair. Flax have a​ small blue flower that turns to​ seed once it​ has completed blooming. These seeds are then boiled to​ create a​ gel that sets the​ hair. if​ the​ gel is​ watered down and places in​ a​ spray bottle it​ is​ the​ same as​ a​ firm hold hair spray. My mother would also make shampoo by adding different plants and herbs to​ homemade soap.
As we​ got older and money became more plentiful my mother still made her hygiene products because we​ all liked them better than the​ harsh chemicals that are in​ some of​ the​ products that you​ buy in​ the​ stores. Today there are many products that are available for​ natural hair care as​ well as​ skin care. When I ​ look at​ the​ list of​ ingredients they are very similar to​ those that my mother used. She could have been a​ millionaire if​ she had marketed her products years ago.
