Excellent book

I got a copy of this book in 1996. It was my first book on the use and making of natural herbal products. It is an excellent book for skin treatments, but does not address the use of diet supplements like fox tail [silica], ginko, or Ho shu wu [shen min] use jojoba as the base oil. If you try some on your finger tips you will notice that it hardly feels oily at all. that's because it is very close to the oil your skin produces naturally. add drops of basil and rosmary to that. this will improve your results and lower your costs. Dr. Bronners liquid castile soap. to use as a shampoo is easy to get and not expensive.

Great book....Here are the facts

I started to see thinning of my hair a few hairs(years) after much research on the internet I bought this book and I bought everything that Riquette recommends..The oils, shampoo, vodka, aspirin, alka selzters, everything was priced at about $150.00. If you go to Whole Foods you can buy the oils and shampoo for reasonable prices..get the basic oils....generic.THE RESULTS: After the first week or so I saw improvement in my hair texture. After first month I saw more thickness. After about three months I did see hair growth AND continued hair thickness. I think the stimulator oils and the slougher cocktail are the KEY ingredients..Just get the rosemary, almond, basil oils..forget the rest of the oils save your money! The reason I am telling you this is because rosemary promotes circulation of the scalp..and I have read many books on hair loss that promote rosemary, basil, and almond oils to promote circulation..look at the books Nutrition for Dummies and also The Bald Truth. Definitely get the flaxseed volumizer..and use that in place of your gel and hairspray..this keeps the scalp clean and adds thickness to the hair! As for the shampoo...skip is too messy and too much of a hassle to make the shampoo..however if you want the best results then use the shampoos..but remember the KEY Ingredients are the basic oils(rosemary, basil, and almond oils) and the slougher cocktail. As for the shampoo and those of us who are on a tight budget...Just use plain ordinary IVORY SOAP to wash your hair with..a friend who has thick hair swears by ivory soap in making her hair a male I have tryed it and I like is 99.9 % percent pure and it seems to be working very well. It definetly adds thickness far as hair growth ..probably not..I have tryed other organic shampoos with good results but they are expensive as hell..sometimes I switch back and forth using organic shampoos and ivory soap ..JUST MAKE SURE SHAMPOO IS herbal or organic or FREE OF CHEMICALS thats all you have to remember to keep your scalp clean..also you can try a product called super hair is at works well..but again it is expensive to me..10 dollars a bottle and thats not including the other products you have to use.THE GOOD NEWS: The product works! I have tryed many many other hair growth products with much less success. Also other testimonials indicated they had good results too...The author had very very thick hair on the cover of the book. Even in the regular photos of her she has thick hair..she claims to use products and it worked for her..and it certainly worked for me and worked for others..give it a try. THE BAD NEWS: The rosemary and basil oils which are the stimulators stink pretty bad. I have asthma so I had breathing problems from these two oils just becsuse the aroma was so strong..if you dont have asthma then you should be fine if you can tolerate the smell. The price is moderate but in the long run you save

Good Recommendations from Riquette

The recipes are wonderful and have definately improved the health of my hair and scalp! A warning however: it takes some time to make your own shampoos, rinses, etc. and also to find all the natural herbal ingredients unless you live next to a health store, so be prepared to devote some time to hair care.I cannot really say that my hair is thinning less (it doesn't seem any thicker), but I love the way my hair feels and looks and so I intend to keep using the recipes.The book was also very easy to read and follow. I just felt that for women with long hair, a bit more of the oils, shampoos, rinses, etc. may be appropriate.

how to grow hair in 12 weeks: the natural way to save what..

I enjoyed the book very much. It was very helpful. I loved the herbal remedies and the ingredients were all very inexpensive. I didn't care too much for the shampoo, it made my hair feel filmy and weighed down. But everything else was wonderful. I would recommend it to anyone who cherishes their hair.

I recommend the shampoo/rinse/volumizer recipes !

I have had seborrheic dermatitis on scalp for the past 4 years; dermatologists have recommended harsh shampoos (that cause my scalp to itch from dryness) and steroidal applications (helped a little bit the first month then symptoms returned with vengance). I saw this book at a friends (I don't own a copy) and borrowed. The author gives a regime that one must follow, includes making you own shampoos/rinse/volumizer (intimimidating at first but most of herbs are very accessible at Bread and Circus ) I have only used the recipes for one week and already my hair has perked up (from the mere lessening of shampoo/conditioner buildup? ). I doubt I will go back to commercial shampoo on any kind of regular basis. It's too early to tell if it will remedy my hair thinning but..if it works I will let the board know.
