As we get close to wrapping up our herbs series post, I figured we could break down Part 5 into two sections. This way we can get into more detail on how to actually use these herbal ingredients to benefit our hair. Since part 5 will talk about 4 different types of herbs called Lavender, Gotu Kola, Rose Petal, and Calendula. For Part A, we are going to get into the benefits of Gotu Kola and Calendula as these herbal ingredients are less common than the other two. If you are someone, who’s actually heard about these ingredients before, it’s usually referred to as scented fragrance or as flowers that can be planted within your garden or seen outdoors. However, for the purpose of this post, we are going to get into the benefits of these herbs for our hair. So let’s get started.
Here we are with Part 4 of our Herb Series and surprisingly almost towards the end of our 6 part series. In Part 3, we talked about the benefits of Chamomile, Bhringraji [i.e false daisy], and Hibiscus. This time around, we are going to get into the benefits of Horsetail, Waterhyssop [ i.e Bramhi], Rosemary, and one of the most popular herbs, Peppermint. I’m sure we have all used Peppermint and Rosemary within our hair oils, hair masks, and just within our hair period since these are more common than the other two. However, how many of you guys have tried Horsetail and Waterhyssop? I know for me, I’ve tried every herb on this list except for Waterhyssop. However, I do plan on trying it out and letting you guys know how it worked for me. So let’s get into why these herbs are a necessity within our natural product journey.
Welcome to Part 3 of our 6 part herb series. Last time around in part 2, we got into the benefits of Alma, Nettle, Sage, and Fenugreek. This time around, we’ll get into the benefits of Hibiscus, Chamomile, and Bhringraji [i.e false daisy]. Many of us have definitely at least heard of Hibiscus and Chamomile, but how many of you knew about false daisy and what it can do for our hair before today? Not many then that’s ok because this is why we’re doing this 6 part series for us, natural hair people, to get in touch with our inner herbal lifestyle selves. So let’s become one with nature and its herbs. As herbal remedies have amazing healing effects for not only the body, mind, and soul, but they can also give us the thick, voluminous, and smooth texture that we are looking for with our curl pattern and hair. So let’s get into it.
So I’m back to give you part 2 of our 6 part herb series. Remember last time around we talked about Fenugreek, Holy Basil, and Curry Leaves. However this time around, we’re going to talk about the benefits of Alma, Nettle, Sage, and one of my favorites Ginseng. Many of these herbs are not common household items because most of us aren’t drinking tea with any of these products, let alone eating them. Funny thing is that they are commonly referred to when it comes to natural remedies for hair damage, strength, and growth. Listen, guys, summer is coming and we all know that’s the season for natural hair realness to come out. Like winter in the city is just a drag when it comes to natural hair realness because of your hat, the wind, the influx temperature changes from cold to freezing and so on and so forth. However, I’m sure you guys are prepping your hair similar to the way that I am, in order to have that “naturale realness” this summer. If you’re not sure about what “naturale realness” means, it’s the art of living in one’s natural beauty. So let’s get into the benefits of these herbs and why partially living an herbal lifestyle can help to achieve your natural hair goals.
