Help for hair
Trying to restore shine to the thatch that sits where once was glossy hair, I was left feeling I shouldn’t be so vain when I foolishly tried to ask Oncologists for help.
In 2012 Etie’no founder, Precious, was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia. After several doses of Chemotherapy, total body Radiation and finally, a Bone Marrow Transplant, she found herself with very dry, sensitive and itchy skin, no hair, no nails and no self confidence.
Precious noticed that the products she attempted to use were chock full of ingredients that were harsh on her body, so she spent her recovery time creating things to heal herself. “This meant that I carefully looked into the ingredients and considered the benefits for my skin. Every single ingredient has been carefully thought about and as the products were for my use, I sourced the very best with no expense spared”.
I get lots of ‘alternative’ products, but these didn’t just rely on being ‘natural’, but used differen oils that I found extremely effective, particularly on my straw hair.
One day, a trio of lovely tins arrived in the post, just in time for me to use some of the oils inside on my hair the night before a party.
Monshea® African shea butter oil, is a natural plant oil containing multi-vitamins, vitamins A, E & F.and is fractionated from premium grade unrefined Shea butter. It was recommended as a treatment for my hair, and I was also used iton itchy skin; to hydrate and even out skin tones whilst also combatting signs of ageing after I had spent months in hospital.
I could see it was very oily and rich, so I couldn’t resist trying it out on my hair to start with. Bingo! It worked a treat, and my hair literally bounced with health again.
Apparently the Scalp Oil can be used directly onto the scalp, and has peppermint and rosemary essential oils infused into the rich shea oil, which contribute to relieving and invigorating dry itchy scalps. I was using a prescription gel, but it doesn’t smell as nice! Nor does it give me a lovely hair shine. This is a much more acceptable alternative which offers me TLC!
Monshea® Shea Oil with ylang ylang was awarded the prestigious UK Health Radio Janey Loves Award, winning ‘Highly Commended’ within the facial oil/serum category 2016 – www.janeyleegrace.com
The only drawback I found is that it is very oily, so you need a rough cloth to unscrew the tin lids – but the oil inside the tins is worth the effort to get it out! I keep on finding new uses for the oils, using them everywhere on my skin, hair and nails! Whereve there is a rough or flaky patch
Now my hair routine is to use Monshea Oil the night before I am going to wash my hair; next morning I use the Etie’no shampoo hair bar to wash, don’t need a conditioner, just smooth on Regenerate Hair Oil when I comb out my hair. Sorted!
Both Prescious of Etie’no and Monigho Griffin of Moonshea are passionate about the products they produce, and I love them both. I now feel proud of my hair, and friends have started to say it looks good. I am vain enough to like that!
