The Sweetness of Cinnamon

This spice cinnamon has got so many uses, it’s like the goddess of spices. I never thought I would be using it on my hair but I guess when we are looking for natural hair solutions, we use every remedy out there to give us the best results.

Cinnamon has been discovered as a spice that has been used over the years to heal skin problems because it is antiseptic and has healing properties. I mean if Cleopatra used it, then it has to be a pretty remarkable spice. It has got ancient history, so to speak.

So there are major benefits of cinnamon and since it has been used in the past, then we can definitely push it for the present and future. Cinnamon is a spice that is here to stay. ☺.

Speaking about things that are here to stay, one of them is the Blends of Nature hair growth formulation that has cinnamon. Since Cleopatra is not here to test it out, I did on he behalf and this butter is just a mix of everything nice and spice.

If your hair loves thick formulations, this is the butter to go for. I recently twisted my hair using it and it drank it all up. The twists I currently have are supposed to stay in for three weeks before I take it out into a twist out.

What I loved about this particular butter is that it has a great scent. You can actually get a whiff of all the spice in it. The cinnamon, essential oils, and other ingredients are so powerful, it just makes it a great concoction for your hair.

Apart from cinnamon being used for skin problems, it is the best for hair because it prevents hair loss and regenerates new growth as it stimulates the hair follicles during massage of the scalp.

With the Blends of Nature cinnamon butter, use it no more than three tines a week for best results. So far have applied the butter twice – yesterday and the day when I installed the twists. My hair has really kept its moisture levels at per.

This is a butter I will definitely be purchasing again because my goal for this year is to retain moisture, do lots of DIY (do-it-yourself) hair protective styles.

Apart from cinnamon the butter also has coconut oil, Shea butter, castor oil and spice blends. Believe you me, this product is all your hair needs for that ultimate hair goal you have. I am sure Cleopatra would approve of this formula.

Thinking about purchasing it? It can be found at all Banana Box branches, Utamaduni and Spinners Web. Let me know how your hair responds to it.

Gingerly Ginger from Blends of Nature

When you think about nature, what comes to your mind? Eco-friendly, green, clean, NATURAL!!

I have loved and indulged in many natural hair and body butters over the years and they have done so much justice to the overall health of my skin and hair.

I happened to bump into a Kenyan owned brand just before the close of this year, and their products are amazing!!

Let me take this opportunity to introduce you to Blends of Nature- a natural hair and body products company that excels at producing the best of the best products for both men and women.

In today’s review, I’ll be looking at their ginger butter. This butter changed my life as it has given me soft, flawless skin.

Let’s start with the benefits of ginger…

Why should you incorporate it into your daily skin care regimen?

1. Ginger is an antioxidant

It helps to remove compounds that inhibit oxidation. This means that it helps prevent damage to the skin, while protecting it from harmful chemical reactions that can cause free radicals.

2. It helps protect against free radical damage.

As in the first point, free radicals are dangerous and they are atoms that cause the skin to age and so using ginger prevents the skin from aging quickly. It also helps protect against bacteria.

3. Ginger evens skin tone

If you are suffering from hyper pigmentation, then this would be the perfect remedy for you. Hyper pigmentation is caused by an increase in melanin therefore causing darkening of the skin. Using ginger for a period of time will help sort out that issue.

So having looked at the benefits of ginger, I will get into this amazing blend by blends of nature.

1. The ginger butter has such an amazing scent that lingers for a while. When I used it, I couldn’t stop smelling myself because it is such a calming smell. My skin really loves this butter and it is worth the purchase.

2. The butter is very smooth- It has been thoroughly whipped making it so easy to scoop. It literally melts on the skin as you apply it. Even if the weather changes, the product will not harden as it will remain the same.

3. It sorts out all dry skin issues. The best part about this butter is that after one application, there is no need to re-apply the butter as one application is enough to last you the entire day. Dry skin will be a thing of the past. Have ashy knees and elbows? Give this butter a go. Your skin will be back to tip top condition.

4. A little goes a long way. Since the butter is smooth, just scoop a little and spread it over your hands, feet and body. It just spreads away!!

Ginger is such an amazing spice that reaping its benefits will make your skin thank you.
