Phyllanthus emblica (syn. Emblica officinalis), the Indian gooseberry, or aamla from Sanskrit amalika, is a deciduous tree of the Phyllanthaceae family. It is known for its edible fruit of the same name.Ayurveda practitioners use amla oil for its conditioning benefits and pigments.

Benefits of Amla Oil
Apply the oil to your hair after shampoo.
*Restore shine and soften hair texture with daily application of amla oil.
*Those with oily hair should apply the oil only twice per week to limit oil build-up.
*Decrease the effects of harsh shampoos by adding amla oil to the shampoo or applying to your hair prior to shampoo. Several commercial shampoos and conditioners contain amla oil.

*Apply amla oil to the scalp to combat dandruff or soothe an inflamed scalp. The vitamin C present in amla acts as an anti-inflammatory.
*Apply nightly if you suffer from a chronically itchy or sore scalp. Massage the oil into your scalp using circular patterns. (www.livestrong.com).

What Is Your Hair Texture?

Image
Hair has been the subject of this blog for almost 7 years and to think we would have mastered our hair by now Lol.

What Is hair texture? Each of us is unique with a peculiar hair texture. We don't carry the same genetic traits hence regardless of any hair typing system, your hair is still unique and should be treated as such.

There have been a number of hair typing systems but the most used and popular one is the one by Oprah's stylist, Andre Walker. Almost every new person on a healthy hair quest would have read about type 3A, to 4C. However, determining your hair texture is a different ball game.

Hair texture is the measure of the circumference of the hair strand itself. Professionals classify the texture of hair as being "coarse" (Thick), "fine", or "medium".

Width is not how the hair feels but describes the thickness of each individual strand of hair. The comparison is typically to a piece of thread. If your hair is fine, it’s thinner than t…

Horsetail and Silica For Hair Growth

Image
We are almost done with the ingredients for hairfinity. Today's topic has to do with horsetail and silica.

Known by the botanical name Equisetum, horsetail is a prehistoric plant with distinctive hollow stems. Horsetail contains silica, an abundant mineral that helps promote strong bones and healthy skin, hair and nails.


Silica is a major constituent of collagen and helps support healthy tissues. Silica is marketed by itself as a general health supplement in several forms, including liquid and powder.( Check our post On Collagen).

Silica helps your body absorb calcium. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in your body. It is needed for bone health and the proper function of your muscles and nerves. It is also needed for proper cell signaling -- a communication system that directs cellular activity.

Methylsulphonylmethane (MSM) sulphur

Sulfur exists in both mineral and organic forms. Organic sulfur is also called Methylsulphonylmethane (MSM) sulfur.


Sulphur

To begin with, sulfur (also known as sulphur) is a chemical element. It is also known as sulfur oxide, which is processed into sulfuric acid. This form of sulfur is poisonous to the body, and cannot be absorbed or digested. Furthermore, Sulfur is often found in volcanic areas, and usually occurs in yellow crystalline form or in mass volume.

Organic Sulfur (MSM)

On the other hand, Methylsulphonylmethane (MSM) is an organic sulfur compound found in all living plant and animal tissues. It is a white, odorless, crystalline powder. This form of sulfur is 100% organic, and is actually extremely beneficial to the human body. Unlike sulfur oxide, organic sulfur is a food grade form of sulfur  that is absolutely necessary for proper health. MSM sulfur works in the body by supporting the  connective tissues of tendons, muscles and ligaments. Furthermore, organic sulfur (M…

Hydrolyzed Collagen For Hair Growth

Image
In the facts about the hairfinity series, we've looked at the claims, what the capilsana complex does and now, we need to look at the hydrolyzed collagen which is part of the exclusive system.


Other names:

Hydrolyzed collagen is composed of small amino acids, which help form new collagen in the body. While there is currently no evidence supporting its many claims, some suggest hydrolyzed collagen is capable of increasing lean muscle mass stores, treating arthritis, and even rebuilding certain organs.

The Making of Hydrolyzed collagen

Hydrolyzed collagen is collagen that is derived from bovine bone and cartilage. Bovine collagen is a naturally occurring protein found in the cartilage, bones and hides of cows that provides types I and III collagen, the major components of skin, hair, nails, muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, gums, teeth, eyes and blood vessels.


Usually, the bone is crushed, ground, defatted, soaked in acid to remove the calcium, soaked again to break the collage…

From Blackgirllonghair.com,
B vitamins are known to be essential for a variety of biological functions including increasing cell numbers and cell growth. Although it is not something you can see obviously, hair is composed of cells and hair growth means increasing cell numbers and cell growth. Will high levels of B-vitamins increase hair growth? This is unknown. However, as B vitamins are water soluble, you should expect to see the excess passing out in urine.

The active ingredient is listed as capilsana complex whi…
