Stinging nettle for stunning hair

When we talk about beauty there are no rules. You can used to buy many cosmetic products for your skin, face and hair. You have probably tried cheap and expensive products. You have been satisfied for a while, then you looked for another product. Probably our skin changes over the years and it needs different cosmetics. Probably we use cosmetics that don’t match with our skin type. There is ambiguity about what exactly our skin needs so I have my own opinion. Along with common cosmetics our body needs natural products, except internal and external.

For my facial skin I regularly apply the fruit that I eat. For example if I eat an orange I apply from the orange on my skin. If I eat a tomato I put a part from it on my skin. My opinion is that if you want to eat something, so that means your skin needs it too. Check out my post about natural home face masks.

About my hair I have one secret. This secret is very old and it comes from my grandmother, she was told by her grandmother and so on. You may have heard about the properties of nettle. About many beneficial effects on human health. The main property of the nettle is that it provides the hematopoietic process (the process when an immature cell that can develop into all types of blood cells, including white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets) and it is blood purifier. But what could happen if you wash your hair with soaked nettle in water?

Stinging Nettle

The nettle grows around fences and roads, in the bushes, on desolate lands. It grows from July to September. Where the nettle grows vigorously means that there is accumulated radiation in the soil. Medicinal are the leaves, stem, flowers and roots of the nettle. It can reach a height of 100 to 150 cm. Stinging nettle has been used for hundreds of years to treat painful muscles and joints, eczema, arthritis, gout, and anemia. Today, many people use it to treat different conditions, one of which is stomach cancer.

Nettle belongs to the plants we know from children, because it has the property to sting the skin. Both the stems and the leaves of stinging nettles are covered by structures that look like hairs but are delicate and hollow. These “hairs” act like needles when they come into contact with the skin. Chemicals flow through them into the skin, which causes a stinging sensation and a rash. Nettle is found all over the Earth except the southern parts of Africa and the polar regions.
