Cleansing from the Inside Out

Learning how to cleanse from the inside out is as important to our overall health and well being as learning how to cleanse our hair the right way.

Cleansing our body, mind & spirit is so refreshing…kind of like the beauty of this picture…it just makes you feel all wonderful and peaceful doesn’t it?

Obviously…this is a HUGE deal in the world we live in due to all of the toxicity in our world today: environment, food, beauty products…just to name a few.

We must be diligent in caring about what we put into our bodies, as that affects this shell we inhabit in either good ways, or bad ways in what comes out of our bodies.

BeverlyD is a revolutionary leader in teaching on how to cleanse your insides first, which in turn will affect your outside in a wonderful way!

Here are a couple excerpts from the book HAIR NOW ~ 7 Devotions of Hair Enlivenment by BeverlyD that deal with how to cleanse from the inside out.how to cleanse from the inside out

“Learning how to read the ingredients list on a product label is essential. Labels indicating that a product contains “natural ingredients” can be misleading.

The first three ingredients listed on any given label are the most important.

Manufacturers will often prominently display the word “water” on labels of natural products. This is not false.

However, if water is listed as the first ingredient in a shampoo, and the second is sodium lauryl sulfate, then the primary active ingredient in that shampoo is sodium lauryl sulfate. Sodium laurel sulfate, and sodium laureth sulfate, among other common ingredients found in most hair care products are petroleum-derived.

A petroleum derived ingredient is an ingredient that is processed from petroleum.

The process produces toxins which damage hair, follicle, and scalp. Because petroleum is a natural substance, one might easily assume it is beneficial to our locks, but petroleum-based substances are damaging to our hair.”

 

“Know the difference between organic, natural, and green, and whenever possible, go local.

There are a great many benefits to interacting with local communities, not the least of which is the ability to investigate and ascertain the integrity and authenticity of a product.”

Just a few words of wisdom concerning cleansing that we can all LIVE by!

How to Naturally Cleanse Your Hair

 

An excerpt from HAIR NOW ~ Seven Devotions of Hair Enlivenment.

wash hairCleansing 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 naturally cleanse hairday.

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.

50 Shades of Cool…Revisited

February is here, and the LIVE holiday of St Valentine!

50-Shades-of-Grey

 

It’s also the release of 50 Shades of Grey, so here I am re-releasing my “50 Shades of Cool”…natural from nature, modern hair.

 

Grey? Yes, Grey.

Or, if you prefer…Silver Slate, Vintage Platinum, Icy White, Blue Silver, Cool Violet, Smokey Blonde, Smoldering Bombshell!

Vogue promoted the look and I agree: grey doesn’t mean grandma anymore.

This coming-of-age color is modern, edgy and space-age. It’s all in the execution.

Will grey work for you?

Vogue Magazine Grey Hair Color PictureWith any look, what’s important is that your hair be shiny and healthy and have a modern cut so that your hair can move.

When your hair shines and moves, it attracts…and attraction is what it’s all about.

To take on this 21st century style, consider a visit to a hair color expert. Use organic hair color creams like Schwartzkopf Essensity.

Make a visit to an image consultant to pick clothing colors to complement your hair color, body type, and skin tone. Then, upgrade your wardrobe to include the latest styles.

Now, add some new activities to get your body moving; upgrade your diet; make a few of those other changes you’ve been considering.

You’ll create enough excitement in your life to make you blush, resulting with a wholesome, healthy, happy aura that sells any look.

How do you feel about your “50 shades of grey”?

BeverlyD Entrepreneurship

My entrepreneurial experience began as young child…

Being from a dairy farm family, children were abundant and contributed to the success of the farm business. That was like having a job with no pay, an apprenticeship.

But, of course, we were fed, clothed, lodged and loved.

BeverlyD as her one woman show character

The real entrepreneur training happened when we got an opportunity to pick cucumbers to raise our own money. Every summer, from about July through September, we picked cucumbers and got our own vouchers to take to the bank to save for our own spending.

Of course, we bought our school supplies and clothes with this money.

I actually paid for my tuition for beauty school with that money. This was all the beginning of entrepreneurship for me.

Make the money; then spend the money.

This theory can also apply to one’s health, well-being, and beauty. I’d like to call it entrepre-beauty.

Beauty now is so much based on capitalism; spending money in hopes of looking better. It often involves using credit, or borrowing money, opening a business, and hoping it all works.

HOPE can be a dangerous path in the area of business and well-being.

Let’s look at how beauty can work in an entrepreneurial sense. May I suggest that you first plant some seeds; seeds of good thoughts, seeds of nutritious foods. Include a proper vitamin balance, movement, sunshine, and some well thought out beauty practices that are synergistic with a person’s body and spirit.

Instead of doing your hair, how about being your hair?

As you are growing your hair, your hair is symbolic of an evolution, or an unfolding of getting better, healthier, thicker, shinier, younger, and strong.

Capitalistically, you command the hair into place in one service. You look for an instant change, a quick fix.

Instant gratification.

In a Capitalist system, you have nothing one day, and the next day there is a business front.

Just like that.

Costs a lot of money up front, but you can buy money and pay interest, and it just will cost you more.

I remember the 80’s and beyond.

Women would come with such damaged bad color, and I could spend a whole day correcting it with $600 plus price tags.

When you want instant results, it costs.

An example is hair extensions, which are a very expensive remedy for thickening hair.  Instant gratification can satisfy temporarily, but the future costs will be even more. For someone with fine hair, certain processes are going to stress the follicle, and the hair is eventually going to fall out.

Quick fixes are a lot like modern medicine…drugs with side effects.

So, you can operate this way, and a lot of people do.

However, if you want to get back to how things truly begin and grow, go back to the farm.  Your hair can be repaired and become what you truly would like it to be, though it takes time.

In business, we call this get rich slow; in hair, we call it heal your hair naturally and organically according to nature.
