Do you envy hair care commercials featuring models with luscious, flowing locks? I do! Most of us don’t have professional stylists on speed dial, but there are steps we can take to make the most of our natural hair, even if ‘natural’ means color treated, blown straight or permanent waved.

Feed Your Mane

  • Iron and Zinc for hair follicle health. Try lean red meats or nonmeat sources like spinach, cashews and lentils.
  • Vitamin C not only helps the body absorb iron, but it also builds collagen, necessary for healthy hair follicles. Add bell peppers, kale and papaya to dishes for a dose of vitamin C.
  • Biotin (a B Vitamin) helps hair growth. The best source of biotin is eggs, but if you don’t like eggs, avocado, peanuts and salmon are good choices.
  • Protein to promote cell growth and repair. On average, it’s recommended women consume 46 grams and men 56 grams of protein each day.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids help provide hydration to hair. Salmon, flax seed oil and walnuts are a few excellent choices.

Primp Your Strands

  • Botanical Shampoo – free from sulfates, parabens and phthalates, this cleanser removes dirt without stripping hair of its natural oils and is great for all hair types.
  • Botanical Conditioner – blend of aloe vera gel, avocado oil, vitamins and essential oils for silky smooth strands.
  • Deep Conditioner with Shea Butter – shea’s not only “skin’s best friend” but your hair’s best friend too! This deeply moisturizing formula is a great daily choice for those with thick or dry hair, plus, you can use it as a weekly mask to restore moisture lost from swimming and other summer activities.
  • Rosemary Shampoo Bar – men and women both love this herbaceous scented soap. Another cleansing option that doesn’t strip hair of natural oils, and rosemary is said to help stimulate hair growth.
  • Prebiotic Body Wash – works like a clarifying shampoo to get rid of product building up but without the harsh, drying chemicals. Prebiotic Body Wash is an excellent choice for people battling a dry, itchy scalp.

Do you have a tip for gorgeous, healthy hair? Please share in the comments. Join me next week for Healthy Skin Tips.

Revolutionary Prebiotic Body Wash

The skin is far and away the largest organ of the human body. What you might not realize about your skin is that it is literally a microbiologic zoo, housing hundreds of different bacteria, many very beneficial and a few which can ruin your appearance or have destructive health consequences.

If you are interested in healthy skin, you must understand that the friendly bacteria living on your skin are not disease causing. They are actually an integral part of you. The truth is that we are a mix of human cells and microorganisms, i.e. friendly bacteria that lives on our skin and provides important health promoting functions.

Unfortunately, living among the large populations of friendly bacteria, there can also be quite diverse and vibrant colonies of unhealthy bacteria. These unhealthy bacteria are different genetically from the friendly bacteria, and the relative strength of the various friendly versus unfriendly bacteria colonies determines the health and appearance of our skin.

Enter Lemongrass Spa Products’ Prebiotic Body Wash, which is an alkaloid-based biostimulant that feeds a wide variety of friendly microorganisms on the skin. Mark Hesseling, Product Development Manager at Lemongrass Spa Products, created a similar product years ago when he was in the environmental sciences industry. He learned how to manipulate bacteria to make it resilient to chemicals. Some of his coworkers used his concoction on their skin and started noticing incredible healing from dryness and skin issues.

Mark said, “This 100% natural, organic, ‘friendly bacteria’ food source causes healthy bacteria to go into a feeding frenzy, resulting in much higher activity levels of normal, friendly bacteria. Over a very short period of time, the healthy bacteria will completely overwhelm any harmful bacteria, virtually eliminating skin disorders of many types.”

It is awards season again. There are the Oscars, Grammy Awards and now (drum roll, please) Lemongrass Spa’s Lime Light Awards! Why not take this opportunity to have an award winning party? Invite your who’s who list of friends and former hostesses, and make a night of it!


RedCarpetAwardsShoe.jpgHold your party on the night of the Oscars, and along with Best Picture predictions, allow your friends to vote on their favorite Lemongrass Spa products. Lay out a red (or lime green) table runner and place the nominated products out on the table all dressed up for the big night. Dress your Grapefruit Body Polish with a silk scarf, adorn your Body Crème in a puddle of pearls and arrange the eight Organic Lip Glosses peeking seductively out of a black stiletto. Print your ballots and allow your guests to put the nominees to the test. Award the winner of a randomly chosen category to a guest at the end of the night.

If you are a Lemongrass Consultant and are having a party with former hostesses, honor them as well. Present a “Lifetime Achievement” award to the guest who has hosted the most parties and a “Leading Lady” award to the one who had the most attendees. Give out an “Up and Coming” prize to a guest that commits to hosting a party in the near future.

It is so much fun to dress up for an event. Our busy lives do not often present many opportunities to dig our dresses and heels out of the back of the closet. In previous posts, I’ve given hints on how to glam it up on a dime, or should I say, a LIME. Have fun with it! You could even go the complete opposite and make a sweats and pony tail night of it. Pop some popcorn, soak some feet and watch (and critique) the fashion disasters in Hollywood.iStock_000033136146_Mediumlogo.jpg

Don’t forget to cast your ballot for your favorite Lemongrass Spa products in our first “Lime Light Awards.” Five winners will be chosen randomly to receive a prize package containing the winning product from each of the 5 categories.
