As a visitor of My Skin’s Friend you already know that every product we offer is made from scratch in small batches starting with fresh, whole, organic foods. We think we have the most effective organics in the world. But that doesn’t mean you can’t make or use things right in your kitchen right now to help you in your quest for healthy hair and skin.

Let’s talk about natural ways to help stop your hair from falling out and potentially promote some hair growth using common foods. Some of these suggestions might make you laugh but remember, a lot of products already have natural products in them (as My Skin's Friend products do) so don't doubt the healing power of some of these foods.

 Black strap molasses can be a great natural remedy for hair loss. Drink two teaspoons on a daily basis, and you will see your energy increase overall and really help your hair. Black strap molasses in its natural form is gross, so stir it into your coffee or mix it with peanut butter so that it will go down easier.

Eat spicy foods to increase your circulation and help prevent hair loss. A known spice that contains capsicum is cayenne pepper, which could stimulate some hair growth, and help strengthen hair follicles. You can find vitamin A in cayenne pepper, which should reduce the risks of hair loss.

If you enjoy expressing yourself with your hair's style and your hair is a major part of your identity, losing your hair can be quite devastating. You can still express your unique personality, however, through your wardrobe.

 If you are concerned about losing hair, think about your diet, which can influence this condition. An unhealthy diet does not provide you with the vitamins you need for you hair.

 Avoid foods high in carbs and stay away from fast foods. For healthier hair, eat foods that are low in fat and high in protein, like fish, poultry, and fresh vegetables.

Watch your iodine and soy intake if you're preventing hair loss while on a vegan or vegetarian diet. Soy can affect your thyroid gland and causes an imbalance that might be directly related to hair loss. (Remember, soy products contain hormone mimickers that can cause imbalances in estrogens/testosterones/etc.)

 Don’t fuss at me for saying this but try to reduce your stress levels. Higher amounts of stress are known to cause increased hair loss. Stress will intensify the rate at which you are losing your hair. I know that losing your hair is stressful but can you see why getting even more stressed about that will cause it to increase? It will make it difficult for treatments to work as well.

Create a massage oil that you can use on your scalp. Mix six drops of bay essential oil with six drops of lavender oil and four ounces soybean, almond or sesame oil. After gently massaging this mixture into the scalp, let it rest for at least 20 minutes before washing out. This procedure can aid in stimulating hair growth.

Vitamin C is useful in the fight against hair loss. Collagen production is increased with the addition of vitamin C. Collagen plays an important role in the health and longevity of your hair. If you are deficient in vitamin C, eat more citrus fruits or perhaps a candy drop with a high vitamin C content.

Eating lots of protein will make your hair fall out slower. A lot of foods such as fish, poultry, eggs and nuts can give your body a lot of protein that you need. This in turn helps give your hair its own protein called keratin. When you have plenty of keratin in your body, the hair will be strong and healthy.

Men who have lost some or all of their hair may want to try liquid saw palmetto. DHT is a male hormone thought to cause loss of hair; DHT growth is decreased by the natural extract found in saw palmetto. Extract the juice from the fruit, and then apply it to your hair and scalp.

My Skin’s Friend Hair Rescue Therapy shampoo, scalp booster and follicle stimulator all help lower DHT while removing build up from previous shampoos, creams, hair spray, frostings and all the other things we put on our hair to be beautiful. Sometimes we need to start fresh. HRT organic shampoo will do that and it is good for all hair types and won’t harm colored or tinted hair.

If you don't eat the proper number of calories, you may experience hair loss. You could quickly prevent this from happening if you make sure that you're eating enough based on your age, weight and height. It is very important that you consume enough food throughout each day.

Do your homework about hair loss treatment techniques, so that you can be mindful of what they involve. When you do your homework, you may decide that one individual choice is worthy of a few extra dollars.

Do not brush your hair when it is wet. When your hair is wet, it is extremely vulnerable to becoming damaged. You can being brushing when your hair is at least fifty percent dry for best results. Hair that is wet can be damaged by ripping, ends splitting, and making it take on a frizzy texture or appearance.

One excellent method for boosting the flow of blood and oxygen to the roots of your hair is to massage them for about two minutes daily. You can get blood going to your scalp and stimulate hair growth. Start by massaging your head when you wake up from sleeping, are showering or getting ready for bed.

A lot of people have been able to grow some hair back. Of course, we think the fastest, surest and safest way stop hair loss and re-grow hair naturally is through the use of My Skin’s Friend Hair Rescue Therapy (HRT).

You can read all about it here and decide whether or not you want to try it for your situation. We recommend you always consider your hormone levels, diet and stress as potential factors in any hair loss as they certainly can be contributing factors.

...Organic Sunless Tanner

 

Stopping here first was a good call.

We used to enclose a printed version of this booklet with our tanner but we continually get suggestions and recommendations from the hundreds of customers who love this tanner so we decided to convert it to a more dynamic forum so you always have the latest information for getting the perfect tan.

One you learn these simple secrets, you can keep that sexy, natural looking tan all year long while you're also pampering your skin.

You'll get more than just a tan.

My Skin's Friend Sunless Tanner is on of the very few liposomal tanners on the market. It actually helps moisturize your skin as well as tanning it so it's like getting two products for the price of one.

These simple secrets will guarantee an even, natural looking tan
Getting an even, natural looking tan shouldn't be difficult yet we hear from customers who have tried so many sunless tanners on the market only to be disappointed in the look of their tan. 
We set out to make the best organic tanner on the market and from the emails and customer reviews we get, looks like we've accomplished it.
If you don't get the perfect tan, let us help
Sure, we occasionally get a customer feedback that says they got streaks or some uneven spots but even then, we work with them to help correct those issues and start over. Without exception, the outcome is positive so I urge you to write to us if you experience anything but a perfect tan and let us help.
Getting an even, natural looking tan is definitely possible without covering your body with chemicals, baking in a tanning bed or enduring the funky smell most tanners leave you with.
If you follow these simple steps, you too will be sporting a tan so natural looking that your friends will ask you where you just vacationed!
First things first.

Don't rush the process o.k.?

You want a natural looking tan, not a cheap paint job right? Just like getting a real sun tan, it takes a little time and patience but the outcome will be well worth it.
My Skin's Friend doesn't tan you, it causes your body to tan itself. In fact, when you spray it on, you won't see any color because there isn't any in it. That's why it doesn't look fake like a lot of others but there are "secrets" to getting the best, most natural looking tan with it.

Before you spray, make sure your skin is clean and exfoliated.

Use a regular wash cloth, loofah or anything else you might already like to exfoliate with. I discovered this helps speed up the process because it starts with new, fresh skin cells, not the old dead ones. Don't scrub so hard that you cause an abrasion. Just a nice firm scrub.

Exfoliate before using My Skin's Friend sunless tanner
There are two reasons for this.
  1. One, the organic tanner interacts with your skin to create the tanning process so the more fresh, clean skin it can contact (without oils or creams between) the faster, deeper and more even your tan will be.
  2. Secondly, dead skin cells tend to get darker than fresh cells and may cause some spotting so your outcome will be much more even once you properly clean and exfoliate your skin.

When your done, dry off and go to the next step.

I put plastic grocery store bags on my feet from the ankle down to keep the tops of my feet from getting tan from the falling mist.
    Some customers have told me that they apply a thin layer of cocoa butter or other natural lotion like MSF Sweet Potato, Melon Fresh or Honey & Aloe to theirs.

    They also apply to elbows and knees because those areas tend to get darker faster and the lotion acts to help avoid that.


      O.k. with those bases covered, it's time to apply the spray.

      It is much easier if you have a friend who can spray you but almost all of our customers report they spray it on themselves with little problem. It might take a little practice to perfect it but it's done every day.

      My Skin's Friend organic sunless tanner application

      I apply it to myself most of the time but when I can get my husband to do it, it is easier to maintain a more even coverage.

      VERY IMPORTANT. The main cause of streaks or runs is OVER SPRAYING.

      Because My Skin's Friend sunless tanner is clear (no colorants or staining chemicals), it is hard to tell where you've sprayed.

      For this reason, it is important to plan to cover in a methodical way to make sure you don't over spray and get runs or streaks.

       

       

      1. Do right leg, left leg to thigh front.
      2. Right arm, left arm front and sides.
      3. Abdomen front (pubic bone to under neck unless you want au natural all over tan).
      4. Then back from hairline to butt. Then back of left leg, back of right leg.  

      If you have someone applying the spray to you, have them hold the bottle about a foot from your body and spray evenly from side to side, making sure to get an even coat. Applying too much each time will cause runs and you don't want that or you'll have streaks. Just a very light coat works like magic.

      RUN REPAIR TIP!

      If you see a run or large droplets during or after spraying, don't panic. It can be fixed before the streak shows up.

      Once you've finished your third and final application for that day, simply let the last coat dry a few minutes and then apply an organic lotion to the entire area to blend the overspray into the rest of the area. In almost all cases, this will completely eliminate any spots or streaks and you'll wake up with a very nice, even, natural looking tan.

      Over spray also happens because you will swear you're not getting enough on you but I assure you that you are. We chose the very fine mister pump to make sure you get a very light application each time to prevent runs or streaks.

      When one coat dries (which is very quick and can be accelerated with a blow dryer set to cool), apply the next one until you've sprayed three consecutive coats in one treatment.  I know you won't feel like anything is happening but trust me, it is.

      Once the third coat is dry, you're ready to get dressed. My Skin's Friend tanner won't color hair or clothes so don't worry about having to cover your hair or having it rub off on your clothes or bed linens.

      Cover your whole body or the areas you want tan with that first coat and wait 3 minutes or so for it to dry. One of the things people love about it is that it dries very fast.

      Repeat this process no more than three days straight.

      Once you've done if for three days, STOP and wait for 48 hours for your tan to “mature” and show you the final shade. If you want to be darker, simply continue to apply it as above until you reach your ideal shade. Once that happens, you can usually maintain your tan with a once or twice a week application. Remember, you won't see the final results for 48 hours
      after the final coat.

      That's it! That's all you need to have a cool looking tan. And when people ask where you got your beautiful tan, tell 'em Tahiti!
