Holistic Care for your Hair from Maple Holistics

argan-shampoo1-250x250

My latest find in Hair Care is from Maple Holistics. Maple Holistics is a homeopathic solution for your hair and it’s wonderful! I love this shampoo; it’s gentle on my hair leaving it soft and bouncy. I especially love knowing that this shampoo offers everything that is healthy and natural for my hair.

Maple Holistics Argan Shampoo contains some extremely effective oils that will help your hair and scalp maintain its health.  Argan Oil, also known as Moroccan Oil is one of the rarest oils in the world. I use many products with Moroccan oil and I don’t ever shy away from a beauty product containing it. Argan Oil contains Vitamin E, Carotene, and essential fatty acids…all good stuff!

Other ingredients include, Peach Kernel (moisturizes, and great for sensitive skin), Avocado (containing vitamins A, B1, B2, D, and E),  Camellia Seed (conditioning and rejuvenating), Almond Oli (moisturizing and soothing), Jojoba and Botanical (Keratin is a family of fibrous structural proteins, which contribute to the composition of hair. As it is essential to hair’s formation, insufficient quantities of keratin may be a contributing factor to having frizzy and unmanageable hair. This naturally derived ingredient helps to replenish the ideal keratin content for strong, durable hair)”. Of course, there are the fragrances of Honey and Vanilla. What’s not to love about this healthy and natural Shampoo.

Maple Holistics Silk18 Natural Conditioner is equally beneficial.  It is a great compliment to the Argan Shampoo providing moisture to your hair and the results? Silky bouncy and beautifully shiny hair. I have curly hair, and my curls have definition and bounce and without frizz at all, it’s perfect! Silk18 Natural Conditioner contains Silk Amino Acids, “Eighteen naturally-derived (literally extracted during the silkworms process of creating silk) silk amino acids prompts an assortment of hair and scalp benefits. Some of these benefits include strengthened hair fibers and natural restoration for flawless hair health. Also, the high molecular weight of the silk amino acids results in the formation of a substantive film to increase scalp permeability. Includes L-Alanine, Glycine, L-Serine, L-Valine, L-Threonine, and more.”

Shea Butter, Aloe Vera, and Green Tea are also contained in the conditioner that help promote moisture to dry hair to dry and delicate hair strands. Shea butter contains vitamins A and E, and is aa natural moisturizer. Aloe Vera is the conditioning agent, and Green Tea strengthens hair roots, activating hair follicles promoting hair growth. Other beneficial ingredients include Pomegranate, Hibiscus and Sea Buckthorn. Silk 18 even aids in preventing problems like dandruff,split ends, and premature graying.

Maple Holistics Silk18 Natural Conditioner has an amazing scent of vanilla, after all it does contain 100% natural vanilla, and the scent stays in your hair even after drying. View the complete line of hair, body and skincare at  mapleholistics

Honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month with EMBELLISH

unnamed-4

Founder of B Fragranced, Marilyn Jones, lost her mother to breast cancer at an early age, and her truest and favorite memory of her mother was her scent. This led her to create Embellish, a fragrance that is as unique as the woman who wears it.

The essence of class, romance, and glamour, Embellish embodies all of the characteristics of female sophistication. Indulgent yet light, the fragrance infuses sparkling notes of apple and peach with a splash of citron. With B Fragranced’s mission to encourage women to embrace their feminine individuality, the effervescent notes of jasmine and honeysuckle balance the sultry base of soft amber and sandalwood to make Embellish any woman’s signature scent. Once the fragrance touches your skin, it will adjust to your body chemistry and enhance your natural scent in order to emit a fragrance that is simply your own.

unnamed-3

This October, Marilyn is paying tribute to her mother with her brand. B Fragranced is joining forces with their official ambassador Christina “Brave” Williams, reality TV star of “R&B Divas” and Billboard hit artist, to spread awareness with a special limited time offer. A free purse-sized sprayer of Embellish and free shipping will be added to all orders with the code PINKFIGHT at bfragranced.com

For Brave, the fight against cancer hits close to home. The new face of Fragranced is currently persevering through her father’s diagnosis of prostate cancer and early signs of dementia. Brought together by fate, the fearless Brave and Marilyn are united by a product that they both believe in with a mission to empower all women.
