Nature's Way - Serum and Heat Protection

As with all hair care products, serums and heat protectors can come with high health risks and may contain several cancer causing ingredients. Most of these products contain silicones such as Cyclomethicone and Dimethicone. These silicones are heavy and very difficult to wash out and more importantly may interfere with hormone function and damage the liver. Logically, if you think about it, silicone coats the hair, trapping anything beneath it, and does not allow the hair to breathe. Silicones do give the hair a shine at first by coating the hair strands with oils but these oils are extremely bad for the hair. Long term use will only make your hair worst not better.

Nature’s Way Alternatives
Natural oils help to enhance absorbability of other natural ingredients to promote healing of damaged hair shaft. These oils are fantastic for both serum and as a heat protector. I have found that extra virgin olive oil and grapeseed oil are fantastic oils for these and many other purposes.
Grapeseed oil is a great heat protector as it has a very high smoke point. Olive oil also has a high smoke point but not as high as grapeseed oil. The smoke point generally refers to the temperature at which the oil begins to break down to glycerol and free fatty acids which produce bluish smoke. When using natural oil make sure that you are not heating it to the smoke point.
Grapeseed oil is a light, gentle oil that is high in linoleic acid and vitamin E. Vitamin E is vital in hair and skin care as it is one of the most powerful natural antioxidants which helps to combat free radicals and other damaging elements in the skin. These factors make grape seed oil an excellent oil for not only moisturising your hair but also in protecting your hair from hair damaging hair dryers, hot irons, etc. 

Personally, I have found olive oil fantastic for my hair since my hair is very fine and often frizzy. The olive oil holds my hair down well avoiding the flyaway look and at the same time giving it a fantastic shine.

• Save money
• Healthier hair
• Natural Shine
• Nourishment rather than coating
• Heat protection

• Too much oil looks terrible on hair. Start with applying very oil and slowly add more if required.
• Be careful to apply the oil evenly or you may not notice that the back of your hair is greasy while the front looks great!


Ingredients: Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Grapeseed Oil

Method: For use as serum or heat protector take the bottle of oil and hold it tightly against the palm of your hand. Turn the bottle upside down onto your hand which will leave you with a small amount of oil. Two or three drops of oil this size is all you need.

Rub this oil between your palms and work it into your hair by taking some hair into your hand from about an inch away from the roots and then sliding your hand through your hair.

Now it's your turn.

Saved by grace, a new creation, on purpose for a purpose. I am free with a future and a hope!

I've considered deleting this blog many times but can't seem to let it go for some reason. Perhaps because it contains such an important part of my life and I'm hoping that somehow my 'scribblings' can inspire and help others going through some of the things I've been through. So, I continue to hold onto it for a little longer. Tonight, 31st December 2021, I reflect on not only the year that has passed but the many years before that too. I love to look back and reflect before plotting the way forwards into a new year. So I've pulled out all my journals and as I flip through the pages I am in awe of how far I have come.  Only today I found myself chatting with Jordan about the importance of not comparing ourselves with others but without past self, and as I look back I am amazed and how far I have come. I can't help but go back to that day. The day that I hit rock bottom. I had been a Christian for 10 years at that point and yet still found myself on the

Daniel Fast - Odours, Tiredness and Pains

These are some of what can occur during a fast but don't be alarmed, it is only worse case scenario.  Many people don't go through all of this so don't worry.  This info is merely so that you understand what is happening in your body and that you don't become concerned if some of these symptoms present themselves. Odours, tiredness, dizziness, headaches and other pains - these are some of the things that you will face during your fast.  As you continue to fast you body will begin to cleanse itself and eliminate toxins.  These toxins will come out of your body wherever they can which will mean that you might sweat more and your sweat will have a stronger smell than usual.  You breath will also be stronger than usual and so will you urine smell.  You may even get a funny taste in your mouth or feel that your tongue has a thick coat on it.  It sounds nasty, but for a while you will face unpleasant odours from your body, so brush well with a natural toothpaste (as you don
