Smoothing Serum a natural sunscreen for the hair

felicia howe

Among a number of plant based powerhouse ingredients in the Smoothing Serum I want to talk about organic virgin coconut oil, createing a perfect blend we can still reap all the benefits without weighing the hair down and feeling greasy. The Smoothing Serum is excellent for all hair types! and is a wonderful leave in conditioner for any kind of blow-dry styling.

Organic virgin coconut oil has an SPF around a 7 which block out about 75% off UV radiation. This is great news especially if you color your hair this added sun protection in the Smoothing Serum can really help slow down oxidation your color fading. Its a little dose of sunscreen for your hair! the smoothing Serum is really easy to use. It can be applied on damp hair and blow-dry  as you would. For extra sun protection you can apply on dry hair and get a nice smoothing effect for flyaways.

 Organic virgin coconut oil is unrefined this means its  packed with essential fatty acids and helps nourish your scalp and hair, this gives your hair added protection when heat styling to avoid potential breakage. We all love how oils can condition and give your hair a lot of shine. The smoothing serum can be a excellent daily treatment without the heavy feeling from just using coconut oil.

Beachwaves a Dry shampoo alternative

felicia howe

 Beachwaves is an excellent dry shampoo alterative for most hair types. In my experience I've noticed that it works like magic for fine hair types that don't want to wash their hair every day.  balancing the scalp using organic Lavender, Sea Salt and a little bit of Argan oil this leaves the hair with bounce and soft texture.   Really easy to use! On dry hair- just shake the bottle and lightly mist scalp area and then let dry maybe scrunching or fluffing your hair up with your hands, or  however you wish. Sometimes you can even use a little hit with the blowdryer for extra lift. Remember just a little mist and go.  I love Beachwaves for fine hair, color treated fine hair, wavy and curly hair. Anyone who loves natural no fuss wash and go hair, this is for you!!

Smoothing Serum lightweight leave in conditioner

felicia howe

The smoothing serum is the perfect solution for finer hair types. This light weight cream gives the hair smoothing and shine to your blow-dry as well as adding heat protection and color fading without weighing down the hair. Using quinoa proteins makes the smoothing serum gluten free! all ingredients are plant based vegan! 

How to use: Apply to damp hair preferably towel dried, put a quarter size or less into palm of hand, rub hands together and work in from ends to root. Style as desired. Excellent for smoothing when working with foam rollers. I like to take a pea size amount in my hands and run it from root to ends just for a little extra shine and smoothing from blow drying static. If heat styling isn't your jam, you can always just leave it in to air dry, gives the hair a nice softness without the heaviness like some leave in containers.

Aromatherapy: ylang ylang, lavender, lemon, mandarin, palmarosa, and rosewood stimulate the immune system, calms, heart opening and gives a feeling of love.

Nine Cosmetic ingredients to avoid!

felicia howe

Just a little reminder 

ANTIBACTERIALS

  • Overuse of antibacterials can prevent them from effectively fighting disease-causing germs like E. coli and Salmonella enterica. Triclosan, widely used in soaps, toothpastes, and deodorants, has been detected in breast milk, and one recent study found that it interferes with testosterone activity in cells. Numerous studies have found that washing with regular soap and warm water is just as effective at killing germs.

COAL TAR

  • Coal tar is a known human carcinogen used as an active ingrdient in dandruff shampoos and anti-itch creams. Coal-tar-based dyes such as FD&C Blue 1, used in toothpastes, and FD&C Green 3, used in mouthwash, have been found to be carcinogenic in animal studies when injected under skin.

DIETHANOLAMINE (DEA)

  • DEA is a possible hormone disruptor, has shown limited evidence of carcinogenicity and depletes the body of choline needed for fetal brain development.  DEA can also show up as a contaminant in products containing related chemicals, such as cocamide DEA.

1,4-DIOXANE

  • 1,4 -Dioxane is a known animal carcinogen and possible human carcinogen that can appear as a contaminant in products containing sodium laureth sulfate and ingredients that include the terms “PEG,” “-xynol,” “ceteareth,” oleth” and most other ethoxylated “eth” ingredients.

FORMALDEHYDE

  • Formaldehyde has a long list of adverse health effects, including immune-system toxicity, respiratory irritation and cancer in humans. Yet it still turns up in baby bath soap, nail polish, eyelash adhesive and hair dyes as a contaminant or break-down product of diazolidinyl urea, imidazolidinyl urea and quaternium compounds.

FRAGRANCE

  • The catchall term “fragrance” may mask phthalates, which act as endocrine disruptors and may cause obesity and reproductive and developmental harm. Avoid phthalates by selecting essential-oil fragrances instead.

LEAD AND MERCURY

  • Neurotic lead may appear in products asa naturally occurring contaminant of hydrated silica, one of the ingredients in toothpaste. Brain-damaging mercury, found in the preservative thimerosol, is used in some mascaras.

PARABENS

  • (methyl-, ethyl-, propyl-, butyl-, isobutyl-) Parabens, which have weak estrogenic effects, are common preservatives that appear in a wide array of toiletries. A study found that butylparaben damaged sperm formation in the testes of mice, and a relative, sodium methylparaben, is banned cosmetics by the E.U. Parabens break down in the body into p-hydroxybenzoic acid, which has estrogenic activity in human breast-cancer cell cultures.

PETROLEUM DISTILLATES

  • Possible carcinogens, they are prohibited or restricted for use in the E.U.but are found in several U.S.brands of mascara, foot-odor powder and other products. Look out for  “petroleum” or “liquid paraffin.”
