I have always had a soft spot for black men who speak up and out about natural hair and their love and support for the sistahs who decide to partake in the journey. This poem was presented to me by one of my dear friends and I knew I had to share it. The poem is extremely thought provoking AND I love it! Enjoy!
4 oz of Vatika Oil (if your oil is solidified run under hot water to turn into a liquid)
2 oz of Emu Oil
10 drops of your favorite essential oil, I used Rosemary
*Feel free to use other oils if you want. EVOO is a great base to infuse your other oils with*
Benefits of the listed oils:
Bhringraj Oil: Indian herb also known as eclipta alba. When bhringraj oil is applied to the hair, it promotes hair growth, and is a natural cure for balding and thinning.
Vatika Oil:delicate mix of pure coconut oil with special hair care herbs including henna, amla and lemon. They are blended together to strengthen each strand of hair from within. Vatika’s unique natural formulation ensures deeper oil penetration to give hair and scalp complete nourishment.
What’s in Vatika Oil?:
Henna: along with other herbs coats your hair protects it from oxidation maintaining its natural color.
Amla: strengthens the roots of your hair to help maintain their health and natural thickness.
Lemon: the astringent action of lemon controls sebum flow.
Emu Oil: works with the anagen phase of hair growth. This is the only phase in which the hair follicle and the hair are actually considered “living,” and thus can be affected by any type of product. It is thought that emu oil benefits cell growth and provide skin stimulation around new hair follicles as they start and continue the development process. All of these together help hair to grow faster; in addition, the hair grown is said to be healthier.
Rosemary Oil:Regular use of rosemary oil helps in stimulating follicles, as a result of which, hair grow longer and stronger. It is also believed that rosemary oil slows down premature hair loss and graying of hair. Rosemary essential oil is also beneficial for dry and flaky scalps. Regular massage of scalp with rosemary oil nourishes the scalp and removes dandruff.
