Is There Such Thing as Black Hair in Humans?

Is There Such Thing as Black Hair in Humans?

Black is a truly fascinating color. Or, rather, a ‘non-color’ if we’re being technical. We can find it all around us, both near and far – from that sleek biker jacket on your coat hanger, to the mesmerizing fur of a wild-gazed panther from the Asian rainforests.  It leaves so much space to fully gaze into it, and yet it is so overpowering that it occupies that space with grace and power. No matter where you find it, it never ceases to amaze.  And this is just as true for black hair. A rarity and a...

Why is My Skin so Dry Even When I Moisturize?

Sticky? How To Get Tree Sap Off Skin

Tree sap troubles are par for the course in the Pacific Northwest. Since we moved here, my family has had our fair share of the sticky stuff, and I have become an expert at removing it. A simple barefoot walk out into our yard yields feet full of sap, sticky fingers, and, yes, the dreaded sap in our hair. It can be a huge pain, and it was for me as a mom of two at first. I come from the city. Run-ins with tree sap were relatively rare, even in a tree-laden town like the...

The Ultimate in Staying Power: Can Aloe Vera Be Left in Hair?

One of my earliest memories in life is of being a toddler bathing in my grandmother’s kitchen sink. She had one of those big ranch-style sinks that was wide and deep enough to act as a tub. And at two or three, I could fit safely and peacefully into that tub so she could bathe me while managing other kitchen tasks. From my vantage point in the sink, I distinctly remember the aloe vera plant that grew in a pot on the windowsill just above my head. Any time I got a cut or a burn,...

The Dark Truth: Is Baby Oil Good for Your Hair? Top 5 alternatives

We were one of those families with a tub of Vaseline and a bottle of baby oil in our bathroom. Vaseline was used for chapped lips, burns, cuts, scrapes, you name it. Baby oil, along with its sister product, baby lotion, was used for slathering on skin and hair to lock in moisture. I distinctly remember my grandmother oiling up with baby oil before heading out to the backyard pool to lay in the sun. I know, right? As I grew up, I followed suit.
