All-in-one products have gotten a bad rap in recent years. What seemed like such a perfect idea to achieve multiple goals with less products has lost appeal in recent years and for several reasons. Not all ingredients are ideal for all persons and one formula might not perform well on every part of your body. Just like we have different hair textures, we also have different skin care needs.
Now, it may seem overwhelming with all the choices available for every skin and hair type, and while many are often overcome with the selections, others find it freeing. A wider range in products gives each of us an opportunity to find what works. That can be great most of the time, but if you are inundated with products on your bathroom counter and under the sink you almost wish for a more simplistic approach to beauty.
Are there products that can be used on your body from head to toe?
Of course! One that comes to mind quickly would be natural oils. Natural oils (essential and carrier) have been nourishing the hair and bodies for hundreds of years. Both are used in aromatherapy and their anti-bacteria, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties can treat common skin and hair ailments like psoriasis, dandruff, eczema, and hair loss.
As easy as it would be to create or even to buy a natural oil that would do wonders for the skin and hair, sometimes something more complex or less DIY is appreciated. Many curlies love whipping up concoctions in their kitchens and by all means that is great! However, with the convenience of products popping up on the isles of our favorite department store shelves or websites makes it a simple task to find items that can be assets to our tresses and skin. Here are a few popular products that curlies enjoy using on their strands and skin!
With summer just around the corner this hair and body cleanser is perfect for the curly girl that wants to keep her summer beauty products simplistic and fun. This color-safe formula is perfect to remove chlorine, salt and even product buildup after dips in the pool. This babassu-derived cleansing system will remove the unwanted chlorine while plant oils are there to moisturize and condition.
Hair and body butters are great. Shea butter, raw pressed mango butter, refined avocado, butter, apricot kernel, neem oil, and sunflower oil come together exquisitely to moisturize the hair and skin. The neem oil will relieve an irritated scalp and help to relieve dandruff while the apricot kernel oil retains moisture for your body.
This sweet-smelling hair and body butter has the best of both worlds with cocoa butter, olive butter, macadamia oil, peppermint oil, and vitamin E. Lighter than shea butter and with a tad of slip, this butter is quite popular for low haircuts and beards. Gliding on the skin like silk, this butter is great for the warmer months without build-up.
Aloe barbadensis leaf juice, vegetable glycerin, vegetable emulsifying wax, distilled water and jojoba oil come together in this butter moisture whip to provide hair and body with much-needed moisture. Perfect as a leave-in cream for maximum moisture for your tresses while caressing your body leaving only a trail of moisture and softness.
This blend of all natural butters is a hair moisturizer and skin rejuvenator. With shea, kokum, illippe and mango butters this nourishing product melts in to your skin and hair with no greasy residue. A best seller for dry skin and hair.
Only a dab is needed to moisturize, revitalize, and protect your strands and skin. Shea butter, coconut oil, kokum butter, mango seed butter and avocado butter add shine without weighing down your hair or making your skin greasy. Great at sealing in the moisture for your hair and skin.
Dry, parched hair will swoon to the rich, dense moisturizing cream of this whipped pudding that gives rich, penetrating moisture so easily. Melting easily without buildup it is made with water, shea butter, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, coco seed butter, castor seed butter, and coconut oil.
