Give your Regards to KAITLINFor all of you that read my Blog . . .
None of what I write............ do I ever claim is 100% MY words...............I learn a lot from a lot of people and can never say where things may have stemmed from.
Read at your own risk.
In the past couple years I have gone on an oil-finding mission, comparing properties, comparing numbers and comparing real live human results. Not oil for your car, although I would love to solve that one as well! No this is oil for your skin and hair...once I learned that lipids which come from (real-natural) oils are what the skin, scalp & hair strands need for true health, I embarked on a mission to find the best ones for the proper application. Once again, I wanted to share what the wealthy, the brilliant, the cosmetics chemists of the world all are privileged to know -- with you and I hope you will all use it. No longer do I buy $100.00 face creams and the like, there simply is no need to. Studying over 25 oils quite intensively - I have favorites for face, for body and for hair. Its all technical and based on each ones properties, the last thing I want to do is bore you, Id rather cut-to-the-chase. Let me tell you about my newest find and guess what, it is the most exciting yet and it is for the hair (and skin) !
Your skin is the largest organ on your body and I think many of you disregard & disrespect its importance. Your skin and scalp absorb through its pores at very high percentages. That is one reason the medical industry is turning to "patches" to deliver their pharmacological ingredients. You are able to receive a slow-release of the medicine and avoid a trip to the hospital to use an I V. Don't you consider that remarkable and important? Don't forget how important that largest organ you have, on that precious body of yours -- IS - - -treat it with kindness.
Researching this oil -- to do some testing, I discovered it was so remarkably high in vitamin E and had these very interesting phyto-sterols, which are good for scar tissue and so many other things” — including, that hard-to-define problem of lackluster skin. It is certainly the richest oil I have felt ever - the weirdest part of that? It dries out completely on the skin, 'dry'! Its a DRY OIL! What a dream! My first thought was how I could turn this into a styling oil or add it to THRIVEN, or anything ... I was so excited - guess what the hold-up would end up being? The price. Its quite expensive - but I came up with Plan B. Thank the Lord for Plan B. This has been a thought of mine for years, I just never went to the effort of putting it together.
Meanwhile, more Western cosmetic companies are now starting to distribute this “liquid gold,” as it is often called. Liz Earle a European skin care queen developed a line based on the Liquid Gold that she is now selling on HSN. She has decided to mix it with other oils which is a brilliant idea but still she sells a night complex in a roller-ball container that holds 1/3 of an ounce of product for $33.00 - here's the link http://beauty.hsn.com/liz-earle-superskin-concentrate-night-treatment_
but to me that is too much $$ for not enough of the actual product. I just sold one FULL ounce of ARGAN OIL to one of our members for $20.00. so that would be quite the deal.
Prior to finding this wonder-oil I had drawn up a plan to begin adding a combo of oils I have developed into 1 powerhouse. I have Avocado oil + Wheat Germ oil + Sesame Oil + Rose Hips Oil, with a tad bit of essential oil combo I made up. The Oil is called : GLEAM : 4 ounces of that... should last you a year. The plan ? At every hair coloring you can use 1 of 2 methods:
#1.) Apply approx. 1 Tablespoon (depends on hair length, thickness, density & porosity) to entire hair lengths, massaging in & combing thru. Proceed to color hair - which would get the oil INSIDE the hair shaft.
#2) Add 1 Teaspoon of oil to the hair color AFTER it has been mixed up. It can be added to Bleach, High-lift Blondes, all of it. Apply color as normal. Again the oil will be deposited INSDE the hair strands - - exactly where it needs to be and the one and only way it will ever get there --when the cuticle is open.
Both excellent methods, simply a matter of choice. . . over the months I have tried both on any number of clients I don't see a lot of difference in each of the applications - - but I see a HUGE difference in the results. The hair is soooooooooo much softer and more luxurious - it is incredible, I will never color without using Argan oil again. . . that's how great the results are.
I have about 2 dozen remaining secrets I have not given away - this is one of them. Imagine using ARGAN oil on your hair in these 2 methods . . . simply delicious!
