An excerpt from HAIR NOW ~ Seven Devotions of Hair Enlivenment.
Cleansing our hair becomes a gentler, easier process when we use organic, natural ingredients from the plant kingdom.
There is an energy that comes from the plant kingdom that makes us feel, or experience things more intensely.
Our hair and everything around us becomes softer, kinder, more natural.
This energy is like a spiritual vibration that grows out of our being kind to ourselves, and extends this kindness to our whole self, and even to other people.
It is not necessary to pressure the hair, the body, or the spirit into change. The goal is not to get healthy hair in a day. Restoring the hair takes time, as we are implementing a whole health system.
When we use organic plants and plant materials, we are not going to be cleansing as frequently as we would with synthetic, petroleum-based products that coat, wax, and polish the hair, and make it necessary to shampoo every day.
Treating hair well and keeping it clean is not just about the grooming, or shampooing process. Cleansing occurs outside and inside, and also involves nutrition. Oils cleanse from the outside, but we must also nurture the hair from the inside through the carefully selected nutrients we give it and the foods we eat every day.
There is a dirty little secret that shampoo companies do not want us to know. When we wash our hair with their nutrient-rich shampoos, most of the nutrients and active ingredients end up not in our hair, but down the drain, along with all the money that we spent on the product.
These shampoos are not molecularly structured to penetrate the cells of hair, especially not the tiny hair
follicles from where our hair actually grows. Instead, they sit atop the follicle and cuticle until we rinse them away.
To think about this another way: if you fertilize a plant, do you pour the fertilizer on the leaves?
Of course not. You pour the fertilizer on the roots and into the soil.
Our hair works basically the same way.
If we want to feed our hair correctly, we must treat it at the roots. Plant oils have varying molecular structures designed to penetrate the scalp and hair follicle so that a healthy, balanced environment is cultivated for hair growth.
Using a plant-based shampoo can make all the
difference for growing a beautiful and healthy head of hair.
