Provides MoistureFamiliar with the L.O.C. method of moisturizing the hair? Well, whether you know that “L” to stand for liquid or leave-in conditioner, it’s usually the first step in making sure the hair is as moisturized as possible.
The idea is to begin with damp hair (water being the ultimate moisturizer) and then add more moisture with a water-based product. Leave-in conditioners are just that. Read more about the L.O.C Method
While textured hair as a whole may need help with moisture, those of us with kinkier strands may crave it even more. Here is where a good leave-in comes into play as it helps to hydrate and soften the hair.
Continues ConditioningAlthough you may use a regular rinse-out conditioner following your shampoo, a leave-in conditioner takes things a step further. In addition to providing further moisture, many if not all leave-ins usually contain some type of protein to help strengthen your strands. Because its left in the hair, the nutrients will continue to work throughout the days to follow.
Protects When Using HeatWhen using heat, you need all the help you can get to protect your hair from possible damage. A leave-in conditioner can provide an extra layer of protection to the hair as you prepare to heat style. Used along with your heat protectant of choice (I like grapeseed oil), a good leave-in will help keep your hair from getting too dry and straw-like once it’s blow dried.
Refreshes HairWhen mid-week rolls around and I need to freshen up my look but wash day isn’t for a few days, I like to use my leave-in to perk my hair up a bit. Because they contain water and oils, they have just the right balance I need to refresh my style and re-moisturize my hair without having to start from scratch. For twist-outs or braid-outs, I usually just apply the leave-in a section at a time and re-twist or re-braid. The next day, the style looks just as fresh as it did on day one.
Can Assist StylersThe ingredients in your leave-in can help to smooth the hair strands which may help your stylers be more effective. When used just before your favorite butters, puddings or gels, it’ll add just the right amount of moisture to give those products an extra kick. Your hair will have great shine and your curls will pop!
Awesome for DetanglingOf course, with all of the goodness we find in leave-in conditioners, they are great detanglers! The water, oils, butters, etc contained in our faves help give the hair extra slip and help us work through tangles with ease.

I've been henna'ing now for more than 2 years! My once fine head of hair, can now only be described as BIG. My curls hang longer (less shrinkage), the color is gorgeous, and the shine is ridiculous!! I owe it all to my other husband- BAQ HENNA.
Catherine at Henna For Hair has written a wonderful article on hennaing hair. You can download it from her site here.
So, what is Henna?
Henna, lawsonia inermis, is a plant. It is a large bush, or small tree, that grows in hot, dry climates. There is evidence from Egypt that henna was regularly used to dye hair five thousand years ago, and may have been used in Jericho as early as eight thousand years ago. Henna was used to keep hair healthy and to color gray hair.Source.
The dye inside this plant produces a red/brown stain on skin and various hues of red on hair. Henna can't lighten your hair, ever. On some colors of hair it may appear to brighten it, but you should count on any color you get with henna, being darker than what is already on your head.
Pros, Cons & Other Effects of Henna:
Henna has some undeniable benefits for hair, which is why so many people use it and love it.
Some of these pros include:
- Stronger Hair - The lawsone (dye) molecule penetrates the hair shaft, binding with the keratin in the hair. This makes hair stronger, but also is one of the qualities that makes henna removal near impossible. Henna also coats the hair and fills in rough spots on a frayed cuticle. This adds a second layer of strength, but it DOES NOT lock out moisture.
- Smoother, Shinier Hair - Henna, as stated above, does coat the hair, but it is a permeable coating that does not lock moisture out. The henna helps fill in rough spots on the cuticle. With the cuticle rough edges smoothed over, the hair feels smoother and the cuticle takes a lot less damage during combing and manipulation. It takes several days for Henna to stabilize. It becomes more flexible and durable as it oxidizes and cures--it is in fact a plant resin that is flexible and solvent enough to penetrate the hair at the cuticle, carrying pigment with it.
- Non-Fading Red - Anyone that has used red chemicals dyes knows how badly they fade. Henna may fade a little after the first application, but after the second application fades very little.
- The Absence of Chemicals - Chemical dyes are not only VERY damaging to hair, they can also cause scalp burns, allergic reactions, and recently studies have linked long term use to cancer.
- Application Process - Henna can be hard to apply evenly on your own, can be a huge mess, and is tiring on the arms and neck. It also has to be left on for a longer time than commercial chemical dyes (4-12 hours), so more time has to be slated for the process.
- Experimentation - To find your ideal mix, dye release time, application time, rinsing method, etc. all require some experimentation. It is not out-of-a-box color, and it may take some tweaking to find your ideal results. Your perfect color is never a guarantee.
- Dry Hair - Some people report dry hair after using henna. It mimics a protein treatment and you MUST follow up with a moisturizing deep conditioner.
- Loss/Reduction in Curl - Many users of henna report a loss of curl. This is by no means a universal effect, and should be neither discounted, nor counted on. It seems that wavies (s curls) are the most susceptible to this, though some curlies are as well.
- Cannot Lighten Hair - Henna cannot lighten your hair, ever. On some colors of hair it may appear to brighten it, but you should count on any color you get with henna being darker than what is already on your head.
- Darkening with Multiple Applications - Henna will darken with multiple applications. If one wants to keep a lighter color, only the roots should be touched up, and repeated whole-head applications will progressively make the color less orange and more burgundy.
- Cost - Depending on your mix, how much hair you have and how often you henna, it may either be more or less expensive than chemical dyes. Though that doesn’t factor in one very important thing… the price your hair pays on chemical dyes. Many people find that they only need to do a full-length application one or two times, and the because henna doesn't fade much, they can save a lot of cost by only redoing the roots.
- The Smell - Some people love it, some people hate it, but the smell of henna lingers in your hair for awhile after the application, often reviving when your hair is wet. Some herbs, such as ginger, can be added to shift the smell of the mix, but nothing will eliminate it entirely. Most people feel it has a smell somewhat like grass or hay.
- Variable Color - Henna can and does shift in color depending on the light the hennaed hair is placed in. The same head of hair can go from burgundy to firey copper, just depending on the light.
Go to any local health food store and you’ll see boxes and boxes of “natural” hair coloring products claiming to be 100% henna. Well, we know that henna only comes in red, so what gives with all the shades of brown and blonde and black? Many natural hair colors are a blend of henna, cassia, indigo, and other color enhancing herbs. Beware, though. Many “henna dyes” contain things other than herbs, that can SERIOUSLY damage your hair.
What is Neutral Henna (Cassia Obovata)?
Cassia Obovata is often referred to as “neutral henna.” It is not henna and it does not alter the color of hair greatly, though it may give more golden tones with repeated applications. It has similar conditioning benefits as henna, but they are not permanent, and they disappear without reapplication.

Moringa: One Of The World’s Most Abundant Sources of Vitamins And Minerals..

The tree has been used in Himalayan medicine for 5,000 years and now is becoming an important dietary supplement all over the globe. It’s known as arzen tiiga, or tree of paradise, in the native language of the Mossi people in Burkina Faso, and Science Daily called it the “world’s most useful tree.”
Moringa Tree Via: Stephen Orsillo
Moringa is originally from northern India, but, as word spreads of its benefits, cultivation is expanding across Asia, Africa and Latin America. According to Trees for Life, moringa oleifera and its cousins are used in traditional medicines to treat an astounding variety of ailments. Indians use it for treating high blood pressure, while ancient Egyptians applied it topically to prevent infection. In the Caribbean, moringa is used to treat warts in Aruba and eye infections in Puerto Rico. Nicaraguan practitioners use moringa buds to sooth headaches, while doctors in Senegal prescribe it to treat weakness and dizziness.
The tree boasts an almost-unbelievable nutritional profile: A serving of fresh leaves contains 7 times the amount of vitamin C in the equivalent amount of oranges, 4 times the vitamin A of carrots, 4 times the calcium of milk, 3 times the potassium of bananas and twice the protein of yogurt. It also contains measurable amounts of vitamins B1, B2 and B3, chromium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous and zinc. In addition, moringa has all essential amino acids, which are the building blocks for our cells.
Dried leaves pack the vitamins even denser, with 25 times more iron than spinach; 4 times more protein than eggs; 10 times more vitamin A than carrots; 17 times more calcium than milk; and 15 times more potassium than bananas, according to the Imagine Rural Development Initiative.
In a recent study, the World Vegetable Center in Taiwan compared 120 types of food and found that moringa had the highest nutritional content of all. That means that the tree can go a long way toward making up the nutritional deficits present in many developing countries. Families can eat the leaves fresh, or grind them into a powder for storage and later consumption.
And it’s not just the leaves — every part of the tree is useful. The roots act as a stimulant and are used in certain traditional medicines. Seeds are high in oleic acid, can be used to purify water and are a promising source of biodiesel. The bark, pods, gum and flowers all have additional medicinal uses.
Furthermore, moringa trees are able to grow in poor soils and require very little water, meaning they can thrive in arid environments that are unsuitable for other nutritionally-rich foods. It grows quickly, and leaves can be harvested months after planting, and up to seven times per year subsequently. Since the leaves grow year-round, they can provide crucial nutritional relief during dry seasons when other crops are not available.
“I personally think we can wipe out malnutrition in Zambia, in sub-Saharan Africa or anywhere else there is a malnutrition problem,” Steven Putter, executive director of the Imagine Rural Development Initiative, said to the BBC. “I’m not saying moringa is the only plant, but it’s a very good cornerstone to relieve the problems that exist now very quickly.”
The BBC story quotes a Zambian farmer called Lewis Chikoti who says, “I have noticed such a difference in my family’s health; my children are not getting sick and they just seem brighter with more energy.”
The benefits go on and on. Tests have shown that pregnant women who regularly consume moringa recover from anemia faster and have babies with higher birth weights. Children who eat it show increased weight and improved health.
Moringa is also good for livestock, increasing the weight and milk-production of cattle that consume its leaves, according to one study. It can even be used as a spray to enhance the growth of other crops.
