Ditching Shampoo: a dirty little beauty secret

Category: Skin Deep
Posted: 2009-07-30 09:50

I know the title sounds like I took it from a tabloid but no. This comes to you directly from NBC!

I am well known to be a proponent of alternatives in health solutions. When you type hair in the Search Posts window (on the right side of this page) you will find many ideas on how to better care for your hair - and by default your whole body will benefit.

The NBC article* tackles a subject that we are hearing more about on radio talk shows and between friends.

For most Americans, the idea of skipping shampoo for even a day is enough to make us feel a little itchy. But some hair stylists and dermatologists say going a few extra days between shampoos — or ditching the stuff entirely — could actually benefit your tresses.

The only option with no surfactants, chemicals, and preservative concoctions is Ghassoul. Easy to use, I have not shampooed in close to 6 months and my hair has never been bouncier or shiner! Bonus: it is perfectly safe for sensitive skin, babies, colour treated hair and really treats oily hair and dandruff better than anything else.

You can read the NBC article here.

Rhassoul Face Mask #2

For normal skin
Into 3 oz warm water add 1 drop of each: lavender, juniper, rose, geranium and chamomile.

For sensitive skin
Into 3 oz aloe vera gel mix 1 drops of rose, neroli, chamomile blue or Roman.

Then gently add in enough Ghassoul until there is no more water floating on the surface. Let sit 2-3 minutes and apply to skin. After 10 minutes rinse with warm water. You can store any remaining "mask" in a closed container at room temperature for up to 5 days, then discard any unsused "mask".

Wrinkled or sun damaged skin benefits from adding yogurt, mashed banana or avocado to any of the recipes above.

Do not go overboard on essential oils because they are concentrated, but try mixing a few of them together.
