Hey there naturally beautiful or handsome human reading yet another
Fancy Free Friday post from me!
It’s all about the Australian Deep –
read along to find out more…
If you have color in your hair to lighten or enhance your already brown, bronze, sandy, cinnamon, or even chestnut strands – you know that you have to deep treat more often than your naturally light natural friends (natural meaning, free of chemicals and no relaxer or perms).
Deep treating hair in general should be done at least once a month. There are ways to keep your natural hair moist and hydrated so you could potentially stretch it out – although it’s so much FUN to take care of your hair and scalp.
Some naturals opt for every 2-3 days styling with great natural moisturizing creams and butters, refreshing with complimentary leave in conditioner sprays and royal-like Heritage Brand RoseWater and Glycerin.
Other naturals have lifestyles that lead them to braids and two strand twists and 2 strand flat twists that they leave in 2- 3 weeks at a time – spraying, hydrating and moisturizing intuitively.
As long as you are doing something –
it’s always better than nothing.
Would you go a week without lotion? I hope not. So, just like your body needs moisture and care so does your hair. I am all for my concept of co-washing with Felicidad Hair Sugar and structurally enhanced water – Dr. Brown’s Healing Water for exfoliating dead skin cells, cleansing the hair and hydration at the cellular level.
This preps your hair and scalp so that your styling products work better and are not just building up in the hair. Every deep treatment should be preceded by a cleanse with sugar scrub.
Now the Renaissance Deep…
just note that Renaissance Deeps usually contain three or more essential oils- this one made it into the Renaissance tier because of the history of the main oil ingredient.
Australian Deep – named for one of the main sources of the Walnut oil also known as American Black Walnut. Walnut oil is also sourced in France, New Zealand and California.
Historically Walnut oil was known to be used by Renaissance artists as the main oil for their paintings because of the thickness and smooth quality. It is of course edible and less commonly used or thought about because of its expense. Walnut is best used cold although in hair I use it for its high moisturizing value and when a client is in a deep only natural body heat rises to warm the hair and scalp.
The Australian Deep is a custom blend of Organic Walnut Oil, Natural based conditioner, Raw Honey (usually local), Organic Lime and Organic Lavender essential oils.
As you will see in the pics below – the mix is green – naturally – only from the organic lime essential oils mixed with the other delectable ingredients.
Lime imparts sheen and is a cleansing essential due to its citrus source while it is also antibacterial. Its aromatherapy benefits include stress relief, uplifting to mind and body and helps with concentration.
Lavender also imparts sheen while cleansing the scalp. It has antibacterial properties and will soothe and heal minor cuts and abrasions. The aromatherapy benefits of the blend are balancing yet it can boost stamina and energy. Since it is an adaptogen, it can assist the body when adapting to stress and imbalances.
How will this deep do that for you?
Well, the essential oils penetrate into the skin in 3 minutes and into the cells of the body in 30 minutes. Bringing you back into balance and helping you have a better day and night plus your hair is getting the moisture and hydration it needs to sparkle, glisten, bounce and flow.
The raw honey is healing for the scalp and adds softenness in the hair as a humectant.
