Castor Oil, which comes from castor beans, otherwise known as an over-the-counter laxative, is now a hair product many women can’t live without.If you’ve ever heard the term “Castor Oil Challenge” then you’ve probably heard something along the lines of: Castor oil makes your hair thicker/longer/stronger, etc.
Biotin, the myth is the newest super vitamin that’s claim to fame is that it makes your hair grow longer and stronger, faster.
What we like: Biotin is essential to cell growth, healthy hair, nails and skin. It’s a natural nutrient found in foods like salmon, almonds, Swiss chard and beverages like dark beer (woohoo!)
A common beauty myth out there is that foods like lemon and tea can naturally lighten your hair by themselves. Zelo has been dedicating quite a bit of time to blondes, researching the latest tips and how-tos to enhance and preserve those golden locks, and one of the biggest foux pas I’ve seen are tutorials that only require combining the incredients to the hair with a 15 min shower cap. These tutorials are missing the most important element: the sun!
Since Zelo’s airing on HSN this monday, ladies of color have been asking us one thing: “That girl doing her Happy Dance and whipping her hair back and forth, how do I get that?”
No doubt, keratin has been one of the best kept secrets for African American hair, and with that comes a lot of questions. Is it like a relaxer? Is it permanent? What will it do for my natural, afro, relaxed, mixed, curly, or kinky texture?
Many African Americans have pulled, tugged, braided, weaved, relaxed, texturized and hot combed their hair since they were in kindergarten, maybe even before then. Our hair was tugged into tight braids until it reached that kinky turning point when our mom’s threw in the towel and broke out the Just For Me. And for all those years our hair was resilient and silently took the abuse.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year not for the obvious family, magnificent feasts and black Friday deals (trust me I take advantage of it all), but for the one day dedicated to giving thanks and being grateful for our many blessings. Gratitude leads us all to abundance and a greater purpose.
Cellulite is considered by many to be genetic while others say it’s gravity at work, but as we age, some of us just get it and some of us don’t. There are many ways we try to decrease the appearance of cellulite – leg lifts, creams, cardio, etc – all of which can make a difference. When I first got asked this question about coffee grinds reducing cellulite, I thought there was no way. I love coffee in my cup, but on thighs? My doubts were proven wrong once I did some research.
The sun is stronger than ever, and getting a sunburn can really put a damper on your summer fun. When we get burned, most of us turn to aloe vera, which can be effective but only for so long. A time honored technique is to take a soak in some black tea, which might seem strange, but yes, it absolutely works.
Long silky hair, generous curves, and a cranial cavity filled with tumbleweeds and glitter. Is that really what men want?
According to Millionare Matchmaker Patti Stanger, it is. Now ladies, before we sharpen our nails and get ready to hurtle Virginia Woolf literature at the screen, Patti also adds (to paraphrase): “Don’t hate the player. Hate the game.”
Our journey started two decades ago, when a chemist mother and her three daughters, all of whom pursued career in science began researching the best natural ingredients to restore and beautify hair.
