Organic shampoo ’is best for the hair’
Using organic shampoo could lower the risk of having an allergic reaction to an unknown chemical, according to All Your Life.
Yvette Cowles, marketing director of the makeover company, explained that organic shampoo is much kinder to the hair and scalp than regular cleansing products.
"There are so many chemicals in shampoos; we don’t really know what they are, and so we don’t know what the side effects are. It is best to use something that is pure and natural where you don’t risk having an allergic reaction to something," she stated.
"People tend to be influenced by advertising. They recognise a brand name and they assume that it must be a good product because they have seen it advertised."
Autumn is the time of year when females will start needing to take care of their hair and scalp a little more because of the cold temperature, wind and central heating used in the home, office and shops, which can make locks dehydrated and flyaway.
"Protect your head from the elements by wearing a hat, comb or brush your hair gently, keep it well conditioned and only use gentle, organic hair products," Ms Cowles advised.
"I personally think it is important to use very gentle hair/skin products that don’t have any harsh chemicals or parabens [because] the scalp is very sensitive."
Using gentle products, such as herbal shampoo, is particularly important when an individual has thinning hair, which can be as a result of stress, shock, medical treatments like chemotherapy or just age. Losing your hair can "really affect your self-esteem and confidence in yourself as a woman", so be kind to heads and perhaps invest in hair loss treatment to boost regrowth.
Above all, it is essential to get hair trimmed regularly to get rid of split ends and dryness. This could make a notable difference to the condition of the hair and get individuals walking down the street with their hair held high.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hi Praise, Carrot oil, which is a carrier oil does have a slight ability to protect skin from the sun. However, it does not clear sunburn from your face or any of the oils you have mentioned. Coconut oil, Aloe Vera or Calendula oil might help. You can also apply essential oils that help sooth sun burn with either jojoba oil or sweet almond oil. The best essential oils for this would be lavender or peppermint. Hope this helps.

- Shatavari benefits for WomenHi D, indeed there is conflicting information on whether Shatavari can be taken during pregnancy or not. Some studies showed that Shatavari can affect milk supply during lactation, and that Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) has possible teratogenicity so it should be avoided in pregnancy. Other studies showed that Shatavari is an ingredient in most herbal teas which are recommended to be taken during pregnancy and breastfeeding. I would recommend that you consult your GP or a qualified herbalist who deals with pregnant women before taking anything, in case you are already taking some supplements/ drugs or herbs to help with your pregnancy.

- The Rosehip Oil Diaries- Entry 1Dear Fatima, thank you for your message. For your type of skin Almond oil is ok -- its comedogenic level is 2 out of 5, it means it's not going to clog your pores. If you are looking for something even lower on that scale, you should go for Argan, Rosehip, Grapeseed, Hemp -oil which are 0-1. I hope this helps.
