Recommended Resources by Handmadeselling for a Healthier, Beautiful and Calmer Life
1. PUMPKIN SEED OIL
Do you know that pumpkin seed oil has DHT blocking ingredients? DHT is the same stuff that brings in male pattern baldness.
The one that brings in a horse-shoe shaped pattern on male scalps. It is a must to prevent and control baldness. Oil from pumpkin seeds works much like the minoxidil. But it is a plant-based alternative to it. That means this product has no apparent side-effects, the way you have with minoxidil.
You can mix it with the Castor oil below to increase its potency.
2. CASTOR OIL
Castor oil is my favorite for hair care. I can never get enough of this one. I thank my parents for using it on mine and my sister’s hair during our childhood. This oil has a huge role to play in the well-being of our mane.
I suggest you use it in conjunction with pumpkin oil to get the best benefits.
Even if you have a perfect growth of hair today. I urge you to use this one to ensure that your hair remains on your head for a longer duration. Also, you can use this oil for OCM – Oil Cleansing Method.
The benefits of this oil are numerous. No matter what intention you buy it. You will always discover one more benefit of it.
Back then I am not sure what brand I used during childhood. But today, I am committed to the one by Aloe Veda. I used other castor oil brands as well. Though nothing was consistent and potent like this one. Moreover, this oil is hexane free. This means there are no toxic contents in it. I am not sure about the other brands that supply castor oil.
3. NO POO HAIR CARE E-BOOK
This is the book that I wrote on do-it-yourself natural hair care. It lists out the No Poo ways of maintaining hair healthy. The digital book serves as a go-to guide to avoid chemical filled commercial hair care products.
It caters to all the questions and concerns related to keeping a natural hair care routine. The entire content is action oriented that you can put to use the moment you finish reading it.
It is the content resource for an effective hair loss strategy through detoxification.
4. SHOWER FILTER CUM WATER SOFTNER
This one is a must if you see the white haze on your taps and shower heads. Dissolved chemicals in water play a havoc on your hair. That is the reason you get excessive build-up, waxy hair and uncontrollable hair fall.
Fix this one into your showerhead and reduce all your hair worries. The activated carbon membrane in the filter does not allow the impurities to pass through. You will see the positive effects within weeks after using this.
Chlorine, lead, and molds trap inside the filter and do not end up on your body. This filter is a must for a healthy shower therapy.
5. DIY BEAUTY RECIPES WITH HERBS AND ESSENTIAL OILS
I have been using natural herbs and oils in my beauty regime for the last 5 years. I have deliberately not used any of the stores bought cosmetics that have toxic ingredients like parabens, SLS, and mineral oil. And I must say that I have been never felt healthier and my skin and hair have never been more beautiful.
In the initial days, I struggled to make my concoctions. But with a lot of trial and errors, I finally started making my own cosmetics which were on par with the commercial ones. Needless to say, doing things my own way had a long learning curve. Plus, the contradictory information on the internet created more trouble.
Though my luck got better after I read a lot of books on herbs, oil, and other natural remedies. This Herbs and Essential Oils course resource were one of those goldmines that I am glad to have come across. Because of it, I can craft my own lotions, bath bombs and I even know how to make a conditioner that is even better than the commercial one.
After going through it, you will never be confused in the path to DIY Beauty. It has tons of resources for Skin, Bath, and Body, as well as First Aid Kit remedies. Plus, there is bonus material on Home Cleaning and Cooking as well.
But my favorite of all is its Soap Making Resources.
This Resource from Ultimate Bundles is a boon since it is available at a super affordable rate.
