Back to Basics: Washing your hair with organic natural non lathering shampoo
Washing your hair with natural organic shampoo requires some adaptation. They are definitely different from chemical shampoos. The ingredients are more nourishing for the hair and are not as abrasive as the traditional ingredients found in chemical grade shampoos.
Obligé by Nature Shampoos are over 70% Organic!! They provide all the moisture and essential elements your hair needs to stay healthy! And most important, they do not contain parabens, sulfates, phthalates, synthetic chemicals or synthetic fragrances!
Make sure you completely soak your hair with water beforehand. Avoid using extremely hot water. Hot water may cause dry damages which may then result in Hair loss.
Do not use too much shampoo, apply a small amount, roughly around the size of a quarter in the palm of your hand and gently massage your scalp with your fingertips. It will require a little more time than traditional lathering shampoo but it will gently cleanse your hair while giving it moisture and nutrients.
The Process of Cleaning
Did you ever wonder what cleaning is all about?
What is actually happening when you clean your skin?
Dirt particles, oils, substances etc… are deposited or come in contact with your skin where they adhere via molecular link forces. This is how your skin becomes dirty and stained.
To remove them you can scrub them out manually with a brush or sponge, if they happen to be water soluble you can also use water or you can use chemicals for oils or oil soluble substances.
When you scrub, you exert a force greater than the ones creating the adhesion, and the dirt is physically removed. If the force is too weak, it will not remove the entire dirt, if it is too strong it will remove the underlying cells along with the dirt (this can be construed as a form of exfoliation if done properly or damaging to the skin if done too harshly).
Scrubbing your skin the natural way.
The cells making up our skin are naturally renewed by our body every 28 days. This is a normal biological process called mitosis.
As we age this process slows down gradually, leaving us with a skin layer made up of more old cells responsible for a gloomy complexion.
Gentle exfoliation compensates for this slow down of this regenerative process.
Using the right protocol, you can assist the removal of old cells (exfoliation), activate the renewal of new cells (regeneration) and restrain the use of products containing chemicals such as corticoids that reduce mitosis (degeneration).
Start removing dead cells and uncover fresh cells the natural way for a beautiful mature skin complexion. Aging can be beautiful.
How using clay can keep you naturally healthy & beautiful
Clay has been used by Man since the beginning of time. The Greeks used it, the Romans used clay poultices to heal wounds and Cleopatra used it for beauty masks. Forgotten with the upbringing of modern medicine it is being slowly rediscovered. Despite all the controversies concerning the properties of the clay, it has been used far longer by man than modern drugs, it never required any experimentation on animals, and it is 100% natural.
According to Hippocrates, Theophrastes, Dioscorides and Galen, the Greeks made use of clays. According to Plines, the Romans used it. Avicennes favors it in his famous writings. Up to the beginning of this century, the French and the Russian army used it to disinfect contaminated waters and to prevent dysentery.
Animals instinctively search for clay in which to cover their wounds or to ingest when they have intestinal disturbances.
Obligé by nature for our natural and organic skin and body care products
Most average body care products found on store shelves today take advantage of the "natural" trend to trick the consumer into thinking that their product is natural or organic. It is a well known practice that consists in adding natural ingredients to a product in order to attract the consumer. There is no question that the natural ingredient or ingredients are in the product, but there is also no questio that the product also contains a range of chemicals, synthetic ingredients, preservatives, colorants and fragrances which both damage and strip the moisture away from your skin, eventually drying it out. Cheap synthetic waxes, oils or more sophisticated synthetic products are used to chemically coat your skin to make it "feel soft", but in actuality these products hide the misery behind the veil. Your skin may appear good, your body will take the hit.
