Dry Hair Treatment

Is your hair dry, damaged and/or frizzy? Are you losing your hair? Here are some remedies to help make your hair look great!

Don’t use shampoos with any harsh chemicals in it like (ammonium laureth sulfate, ammonium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate, sodium lauryl sulfate, etc.) They are very damaging to your hair. They strip the hair of its natural oils. Only shampoo your hair once or twice a week and condition your hair every day.

Adding honey to your shampoo will help add moisture to your hair. Add 2 tsp. pure honey to a gentle shampoo. Follow with a gentle conditioner. Honey will help add gloss to the hair shaft.

pH Balance Hair Rinse – Mix equal parts of apple cider vinegar with water and pour through the hair. Leave the solution in the hair and scalp for five minutes before rinsing with lukewarm water.

 

Fruit Smoothie

1 cup frozen Blueberries
1 cup filtered water
1 teaspoon 100% organic, raw Peruvian maca powder
2 tablespoons ground flax-seed
1 cup plain greek yogurt (instead of water)
1 teaspoon Xylitol (optional)
ice (optional)

Blend all the ingredients together in a blender. If it’s too thick add some more filtered water until you get it the way you like it. Pour into a glass and enjoy!

NOTE: You can replace the blueberries with other fruit like cherries, raspberries, strawberries, peaches, pears, melon, pineapple or bananas…or you can add more than one fruit to your smoothie. The choices are endless.

 
 

Blueberry/Banana Pancakes

1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
