Washing your hair ’gets rid of stress’
Now that autumn has well and truly arrived, you might be feeling cold and a bit down about not being able to venture outside in summery dresses for the next few months.
But next time you turn down an invitation for an evening out you don’t feel like going on, don’t be embarrassed to say that you’ll be washing your hair.
According to new research, the act of cleaning your locks with organic shampoo or other products helps us actually feel better.
Spike Lee of the University of Michigan recently led research into the emotional effects of getting clean.
He told the Daily Mail: "By washing the hands, taking a shower or even thinking of doing so, people can rid themselves of a sense of immorality, unlucky feelings, or doubt about a decision.
"The bodily experience of removing physical residues can provide the basis of removing more abstract mental residues - metaphor is that powerful," he explained.
However, this can work both ways, so if you’re feeling happy or excited about something, having a wash can reduce the positive impact.
"Cleansing removes the residual influence of earlier experience. If that was positive, it would go down the drain too," Mr Lee suggested.
"In fact, washing one’s hands after reminiscing about a positive event limits the warm glow of happy memories, leaving people less satisfied."
But even if your excitement has subsided a bit following a bath or shower, at least your hair will look and smell gorgeous after using herbal shampoo to get it squeaky clean.
Buying organic hair care products does not have to cost a bomb either, so why not take an evening out of your busy schedule this October, pour yourself a beverage of choice and run a hot bath or shower to get your locks feeling smooth and silky.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
