So you’re loving your natural hair, but it could do well to have a little daily moisture and maintenance to keep it as fabulous as possible. Well consider our natural hair care essentials list the next time you head to the beauty supply store. Remember a small batch of products sure does go a long way. Check out our recommendations below and let us know what you think with a comment!
Scarf. We mention this time and again, but no natural hair goddess should rest her pretty little head without a silk or satin scarf/bonnet around it at night. Those blissful hours of slumber can wreak havoc on your tresses, leaving the friction between unprotected hair and your pillow to do serious damage over time. Avoid unnecessary breakage and beauty breakdowns, by tying things up! And if you’re styling hair for a daytime look, try a stocking cap on top of your scarf to keep it all in place.
Detangling Tools. Depending on your hair type, opt for a brush or comb that will keep hair free of tangles, but will also be gentle to your crown. Boar bristle brushes, paddle brushes, and detangling combs are all popular choices. We are also loving the Knot Genie, which is gaining some serious popularity in the natural hair care world. But avoid choosing tools at random or ones that have knobs at the end, as these are only going to be hard on hair and create damage in the long run.

Joint pain, myofascial pain, arthritic pain and fibromyalgia, can improve significantly with several natural remedies now available.

Stretching the muscles of the neck, back, arms, and legs helps to tone muscles. In some cases isometric and resistance exercising may also be beneficial.

In the upper extremities range of motion exercises from the shoulders to the fingers is essential. The same is true for the lower extremities, from the hips to the toes. People who suffer with serious muscle and joint problems should begin exercising under the direction of a qualified professional.
Inflammation is the culprit in most cases of chronic pain. Several natural anti-inflammatory herbs have shown to be quite effective in alleviating inflammation and thus easing pain. They are with few exceptions side-effect free. They include turmeric, boswelia, ginger, ginseng, and willow bark.
