Your Shampoo Sudses Well And Smellls Great!

Dear Aim 2 Health,

Your products are the answer to my prayers. I searched for years for a face cream and also a body cream that would be pure and powerful, and I found it in Aim 2 Health's Face & Neck TheraCream and in My Daughter's Hand & Body TheraCream. Now my face is moisturized without being greasy (and subsequently breaking out), and my body is moisturized so that my skin is no longer so dry that it "hurts" when I exercise! Also, as a bonus blessing, I tried your shampoo and found in it another favorite product, that sudses so well - even on the first washing - and smells great too (wonderful Tea Tree oil at work!). Thank you Aim 2 Health for your consistently excellent products, and also for the helpful sale offers that you often extend to us. Sincerely yours, An Extremely Satisfied Customer

Is Your Shampoo Tear Free? Other Help For Eczema 3 Year Old. Thank You.


(Maryland, USA)

Hello.

Our daughter will be 3 in November. She has had eczema since she was 2 months old. I am looking for a soap and shampoo for her. I finally found one but it's not natural. Mustela Stelatopia Cream Cleanser. But her scalp is dry on the top of her head. So I am trying to find something else. She has asthma, allergies and eczema. So I have to be careful about using herbal things due to allergies (eggs, peanuts, tomatoes, grass and weed pollens). And right now the weed pollen here in Maryland is through the roof. I took her off all the allergy medicines she was on due to the side effects, from being a zombie to having a chronic cough during the night. But now because of the pollen her skin is terrible. Her eczema though is not really or never has been flaky or dry. Just red and very itchy spots. Especially on her knees, ankles, wrists, arms and sometimes the back of her shoulder blades and behind her neck. I'm nervous about using herbal and all natural just because of her allergies, but want to stop using steroid ointments. She also happened to contract right after her 1st birthday a very bad skin staph and HSV1 infections simultaneously. It was a very scary thing for her and us. I have used Aquafor about 2-3 times a day for the entire time. Can you offer any suggestions that will be safe for our little joy that we waited so long for? Thank you for your time sorry for the long (shortened) history.

Hello,

Certainly, that is a very long time for someone so young to suffer from eczema. Speaking as a mother, when our children hurt, we hurt with them! The first step, which is very important, is to stop using anything that is potentially harmful such as the steroid creams and ointments. Steroids can produce side effects that include: thinning and discoloration of the skin, easy bruising, permanent dilation of certain blood vessels, burn marks on skin, liver and kidney damage and a weakened immune system. The best choice will be products that are natural, are filled with health building ingredients, are anti bacterial, anti inflammatory, anti itch and can penetrate the 7 layers of skin and scalp. Our products have been formulated with these very properties and are safe and extremely effective for children and adults of all ages. You see, just as the body responds to wholesome foods, the skin will respond to health building ingredients.

For her very dry scalp I recommend using our HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT. A very small amount will be needed and it will bring much needed moisture into the layers of her scalp where the dryness begins. As our shampoo contains no chemicals in it to numb the eye nerves, keeping the suds out of her eyes is recommended. Then, for her red, inflamed, itchy areas on her knees, ankles, wrists, arms, back of shoulder blades and behind her neck I recommend both our FACE & BODY WASH and our MY DAUGHTER'S HAND & BODY THERACREAM. Both of these products will help to restore her skin to a healthy balance as her eczema condition is relieved. Very importantly, bathing her in our wash and then applying a very light coat of cream will stop the itching, bring down the red inflammation and bring much needed moisture down into the 7 layers of skin.

Please keep me posted on your beautiful little girl!

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Itchy, White Patches On Scalp

by Diane Warneke
(Hopkinsville, KY)

It started out as one small spot of white scale, I'd scratch, it would come off, including a couple of hairs.

It's spread across the back of my scalp... itching horribly. I checked the shampoos I've used recently and both contain sodium lauryl sulfate so I'm wondering if this might be the problem after reading your site. I've used Selsen blue, thinking it was a dandruff problem, but it doesn't help either.

I would appreciate your suggestions.

Response To Itchy, White Patches On Scalp
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Diane,

You are quite correct in that the sodium lauryl sulfate can be causing the condition you are experiencing. You mentioned Selsun Blue and this shampoo contains many ingredients that are TOXIC!

Here are the top 9 ingredients that can irritate your skin in addition to having a negative effect on your health:
1) MINERAL OIL - a by product in the processing of gasoline from petroleum and it acts like a plastic wrap, cutting off precious oxygen and preventing toxins from escaping the skin which can cause acne.
2) DEA (diethanolamine), MEA (monoethanolamine) and TEA (triethanolamine) are hormone-disrupting chemicals found in many shampoos. They're thought to cause cancer so stay away.
3) Imidazolidinyl DMDM Hydantoin - these are preservatives that release formaldehyde, (formaldehyde based solutions are used in embalming to disinfect and temporarily preserve human remains pending final disposition), triggering skin irritations and even heart palpitations.
4) FRAGRANCE - if you see the word "fragrance" on the ingredient list it means synthetic ingredients that can cause allergic reactions.
5) ALCOHOL - dries out hair.
6) PHTHLATES, (pronounced thowl-ates) - used in a lot of skin-scalp-baby care products to stabilize fragrances, also makes plastics flexible.
7) SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE - used because it is an inexpensive detergent and makes mixtures foam well but has cancer causing properties.
8) BETAINE - can cause a red, drying rash on your scalp, around the eyes and along the neck, with flaking, peeling, and itching.
9) PARABENS - preservatives that have been identified as clear-cut xenoestrogens which are synthetic toxic substances that have the potential to increase women's breast cancer risk.
My strong recommendation is to use only natural, health building products for your skin and scalp. The body truly responds to natural ingredients. Follow these steps to restore and repair your scalp to a healthy and balanced state.

1) At night before bedtime, rub in our specially formulated therapeutic DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM into the parts of the scalp affected and be sure to do this very gently. This double strength formula is all natural and penetrates the thicker skin of the scalp deeper and faster. Allow the cream to absorb overnight into the 7 layers of scalp tissue.

2) Next, wash your hair and scalp with our HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT which is hypo-allergenic and filled with nutrients. These 2 products, together, will unpack dry patches down to the deepest part of the scalp and restore much needed moisture and regain a healthy balance once again. They will also stop any itching and provide anti bacterial protection while working.

Once your scalp condition is repaired you need only use the HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT to keep your scalp healthy and problem free.

Please keep me posted as to your progress Diane.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Flat Ironing Hair

I have naturally wavy hair and I flat iron it daily and now it's getting some frizz but not much. What should I do?

Response to Flat Ironing Hair
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hi Serena,

I know you enjoy how the flat iron makes your hair look, however, whenever you apply heat to your hair repeatedly, this can ultimately result in hair damage.

You see, compared to chemical straightening techniques, which permanently restructure the hair, flat irons help you achieve pin-straight hair by pressing it through heated tongs, which temporarily reshape the hydrogen bonds in the hair's inner core. However, this heat eventually results in damage to the outer cuticle--dry ends, fly-aways, dulling and breaking that gives your hair a thin, shaggy appearance.
.
If you use a wet-dry iron, that sizzling sound is not good--this is the sound of the water in your hair turning to steam, not being "sealed" into the hair's cuticle as some flat iron marketers claim. Similarly, ceramic tourmaline flat irons that purport to exert "negative ions" into the hair to make it less frizzy are no better than standard metallic irons.

Here is what I recommend Serena:

1) Use your flat iron at the right heat settings--and use it as infrequently as possible--this can help you avoid dull, broken, heat-damaged hair.

2) Wash your hair with an all natural shampoo that will add large amounts of moisture to your hair shafts as well as restore the PH balance of your hair. Our HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT is loaded with health building ingredients that will help repair the dry, damaged state your hair has fallen into.

3) You might also want to try using a leave-in conditioner in your hair, or alternately, using a spray, cream or gel. The goal is to keep your hair lubricated during the course of heat styling.

Please keep me posted on your progress Serena.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Hair May Be Thinning At 18

by Adam
(Oklahoma City)

I'm 18 years old and worried because it seems ever since college started my hair is thinner in the front and going back on the temples and thinning there. I'm somewhat convinced it's my bad diet, lack of sleep, extreme stress, and oily scalp. But could these factors play a role in a receding hairline? Do you think it is possible for me to get some thicker hair? There is no family history of baldness on both sides of my family.

Response To: Hair May Be Thinning At 18
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Adam,

Considering the fact that there is no family history of balding on both sides of your family, in all likelihood, your thinning hair could very well be due to external variables at play here. Certainly, diet, lack of sleep, oily scalp and especially extreme stress can all have a negative effect on hair growth. Of course I am going to strongly recommend that you work towards attaining a healthier diet, increase your sleep (naps count too!), cleanse your scalp regularly and try some activities to help you de-stress.

To bring your scalp back to a healthy balance, I recommend the following. At night, rub in our specially formulated therapeutic DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM into the scalp. This double strength formula is all natural and penetrates the thicker skin of the scalp deeper and faster. It has anti fungal and anti bacterial properties and will unpack any congested (excess oil mixed with dead cells) areas.

Next, when you wash your hair and scalp use our HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT which is hypo-allergenic and filled with nutrients. These 2 products, together, will assist your scalp in regaining a healthy balance once again as well as restore its proper PH.

Please keep posted on your progress Adam.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Hair Loss

by DeAndre Howell
(Brooklyn, NY, USA)

Once the hair follicles is completely inactive, the hair follicles is not going to reactivate? Ever since I was 18, my hairline to the front of my scalp started receding. I'm 33 years old now. Now the hair on my scalp is just thin and my front hairline looks like a horse shoe. I tried Rogaine a long time ago off & on then I stopped because I'll have to keep using it permanently. Then I read about the side effects. Not only that I'm fighting my hair loss, I'm facing dandruff and severe dry itchy scalp problem. I wasted money trying to solve my problems. What's the products I could use to solve my problem from this web site's store?

Hello DeAndre,

Let me begin by saying that studies have shown that inactive hair follicles are not dead hair follicles; they're just catatonic. The human hair follicle is a tiny biological factory for the production of hair. Sometimes a hair follicle becomes miniaturized to the point of inactivity, and over time, that miniaturized hair follicle will die and once your hair follicles become hardened they stop producing hair. The goal is to revive tired hair follicles and prevent the remaining active hair follicles you have from becoming dormant due to the hardening of the follicles. It is believed that too much androgen, a testosterone-like hormone, and a build up of collagen are responsible for this effect. Also responsible are bad circulation, infectious condition, stress, medication, heredity and hormonal imbalance. Regardless, when hair stops growing, there is usually a cause and definitive ways to "revive" them.
Here is what I highly recommend and what has helped our customers across the globe:

1) At night before bedtime, rub in our specially formulated therapeutic DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM into the parts of the scalp affected. This double strength formula is all natural and penetrates the thicker skin of the scalp deeper and faster. It is rich with nutrients and will unpack any congested areas on your scalp as well as relieve the dandruff symptoms and itching you are experiencing. Allow the cream to absorb overnight into the 7 layers of scalp tissue.

2) Next, wash your hair and scalp with our HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT which is hypo-allergenic and filled with nutrients. These 2 products, together, will restore much needed moisture and help your scalp regain a healthy balance thereby helping to revive hair growth once again.

Please keep me posted on your progress DeAndre.

Response to Shampoo Question
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hi Sarah,

This is actually a very common question from folks who are trying to find a pure and gentle enough shampoo to use. Many seek the highly commercialized brands advertised in the media for babies and young children. Unfortunately, I have some bad news about the Johnson and Johnson Tearless Baby Shampoo you asked about.

Believe it not, this shampoo contains a chemical in its formula that actually numbs the nerve endings in the eyes. So when shampoo falls into baby's eyes the numbing effect goes into action and baby does not even feel any stinging from the soapy suds. This is what so many parents are washing their children's hair with......which, truth be known, would appall the masses!!

Here are the ingredients in the Johnson and Johnson Baby Shampoo:
Water, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, PEG-80 Sorbitan Laurate, Sodium Trideceth Sulfate, PEG-150 Distearate, Fragrance, Polyquaternium-10, Tetrasodium EDTA, Quaternium-15, Citric Acid, Yellow 10 and Orange 4. May also contain: Citric Acid, Sodium Hydroxide.

You can see it's filled with a number of chemicals, dyes and fragrance.....not what you want for baby or you! Below I've listed just 3 ingredients contained in most hair products and the damage that they do!

FRAGRANCE - if you see the word "fragrance" on the ingredient list it means synthetic ingredients that can cause allergic reactions.

PHTHLATES, (pronounced thowl-ates) - used in a lot of skin-scalp-baby care products to stabilize fragrances, also makes plastics flexible. Studies have suggested that phthalates can cause reproductive problems in boys and early puberty in girls.

SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE - used because it is an inexpensive detergent and makes mixtures foam well but has cancer causing properties.

BETAINE - used in bath products like shampoos and hand soaps, and in cosmetics as an emulsifying agent and thickener, can cause a red, drying rash on your scalp, around the eyes and along the neck, with flaking, peeling, and itching.

Our company had definitely seen a tremendous need for a truly pure, gentle and all natural shampoo which is why I formulated our HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT. It can be used on infants and adults alike and works quickly to restore and repair all types of problematic scalp and hair and also does wonderful things for the hair shafts as it fills them with much needed moisture.

As far as how often people should shampoo their hair, there really is no set answer for everyone as our needs often differ due to genetics, lifestyle, activity levels, environment etc. So what I would say is that when a person notices their scalp and or hair feeling greasy, go ahead and wash your hair with the proper, natural shampoo. It will cleanse the scalp and hair shafts and enhance that crown of glory we all desire....healthy scalp and beautiful hair.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

My Hair

by Barbara, Daku
(Kelowna BC Canada)

My question is: my hair...I am sick over it ... my hair is very fine. I have colored and permed my hair for many years. I am 71 yrs old and in the last 2 years with a lot of medication I take and surgery and stress I have been through, my hair is very dry and matted and I cannot cut it any shorter as it is already about 1 1/2" short on top. Recently it has been permed and it got worse. I really feel it was not a good thing but how can I fix my problem? Can apple cider vinegar help the hair and what shampoo and conditioner should I use? Where do I find them? The sun damaged my hair as well and turned it to a brassy reddish blonde when, I am a dark blonde to light brunett. I did have nice shoulder length hair but now I have very short hair because I needed to cut most of all the dry ends off but it is bad to my new growth which is only about a 1/4 " coming in. I do not plan to color for along time and no more perms "I WANT MY HAIR BACK" please e-mail me with my answer!

Thank you, very much will be waiting to hear from you! Barbara

Hello Barbara,

Our hair is our crown and glory, so I certainly can feel your pain when you say you want your hair back!! It is a fact that shampoos rank among the hair products most often reported in association with dry hair and scalp, irritation and outbreaks, stinging eyes, and tangled, split, and fuzzy hair. Add to this, the harsh chemicals used in perm processing and hair coloring.....it is no wonder so many people are frustrated.

When hair has been badly damaged with chemicals and excessive heat, there is trauma to the hair follicle along with the obvious dry, brittle and fragile hair shafts. Treatment must take place 7 layers deep in the tissues of the scalp. This is where new, healthy hair will begin to be evident. The scalp is the area that needs to receive nutrients and much needed moisture.

I believe in using only naturally made products made with herbal ingredients. I have seen time and time again that using an effective shampoo is critically important. As an advocate of natural remedies, I believe in the immediate and long term benefits of using only natural, organic products for your hair and scalp. They should contain the right combination of natural herbal extracts, vitamins C and E, tea tree oil and more. You see, these are highly reparative ingredients and a natural shampoo doesn't disturb the natural PH of the hair & scalp like most commercial shampoos and hair products do. It soothes and hydrates the scalp for long lasting relief and health.

The following is what I highly recommend for the treatment of your scalp and hair to help restore both to a healthy balance and state.

1) At night before bedtime, rub in our specially formulated therapeutic DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM into the scalp. This double strength formula is all natural and penetrates the thicker skin of the scalp deeper and faster. Allow the cream to absorb overnight into the 7 layers of scalp tissue.

2) Next, wash your hair and scalp with our HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT which is hypo-allergenic and filled with health building nutrients. These 2 products, together, will repair dry damaged cells to the deepest part of the scalp and restore much needed moisture and regain a healthy balance once again. Remember, when the scalp and hair are dry the number one thing they need is MOISTURE and not oil.

Once repaired, you need only use the HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT to keep your scalp and hair healthy and problem free.

Please keep me posted on your progress Barbara.

Hair Knots

by Sarah
(Sydney, Australia )

I just came across this site, looks great.

I'm curious about something, my hair is usually dry I do apply oil here and there besides this I have noticed that a single strand of hair has a knot. A few of my hairs had this, I thought it was weird. I don't have split ends just dry hair, when I run my finger on a single strand it feels rough.

Though what creates single stand knots? Is it the dryness? Any tips?

Response to Hair Knots
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hi Sarah,

It certainly sounds like you have a fairly bad case of hair dryness. I'm guessing that your hair length is at least past your shoulders which presents even more of a challenge for your hair to receive moisture from your scalp area. Having hair down the middle of my back, I know what a challenge it can be to keep it soft and healthy looking.

You'll want to stay away from any product for your hair that contains: mineral oil, DEA, DMDM hydantoin, fragrance, alcohol (this one is VERY DRYING on scalp and skin!!), phthlates, sodium lauryl sulfate, betaine and parabens. These chemicals wreak so much havoc on our hair not to mention the scalp and our health as well.

Use only a natural and organic herbal filled shampoo formulated specifically to "moisturize" the hair. When the hair is dry, the number one thing it needs is "moisture" and not oil. Our HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT contains strong humectants that will replace your hairs much needed moisture all the way down to the hair shaft. This will replace dry, brittle, knot prone hair with soft, pliable and shiny hair that we all want and love. Your scalp will thank you too as it is also restored to a more healthy balance.

Let me know how it goes and of course, do your best to also follow the guidelines contained on our " Dry Hair Can Be Repaired" page.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Hello Ayesha,

In 5 years, a lot of things could be affecting the condition of your hair and scalp in relationship to hair growth. Stress, diet, hormonal changes, work related changes, marriage, deaths etc., can all play a part in how our body is acting and reacting. These are possible areas of your life that might be undermining your hair growth. That said, healthy hair and scalp can only truly be obtained by natural, health building ingredients. Here is what I highly recommend to help rebuild a healthy scalp with proper hair growth.

1) At night before bedtime, rub in our specially formulated therapeutic DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM into the parts of the scalp affected and be sure to do this very gently.

I have long hair that goes down to the bottom of my back, it looks nice when I have all my hair food in it but when I wash it out, it's frizzy, dry and I notice little stray strands here and there, that aren't the same length as my hair. I just wish I could find a solution to this problem. I want naturally beautiful hair without having to use so many products, I want my old hair back! when I was a little girl I had soft healthy shiny hair. I don't blow dry, straighten, dye or do anything to my hair. What shall I do?

Response to Dry, Frizzy, Uneven Hair
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Hillwa,

First, congratulations on having hair as long as yours...what a treasure! You mentioned "hair food" and I'm not exactly sure what you mean. If you mean the commercial hair products that are advertised to tame the frizzies and so forth, I'm afraid that you might be experiencing the effects of the harmful toxins and chemicals that are contained in these products. (If you mean something else, can you please write me?)

Here is a short list of some of the most common additives that companies will put in their hair products and the harm they can cause:

1) MINERAL OIL - is simply a cheap filler with harmful effects to your skin and health.
2) DEA (diethanolamine), MEA (monoethanolamine) and TEA (triethanolamine) are hormone-disrupting chemicals found in many shampoos.
3) Imidazolidinyl DMDM Hydantoin - these are preservatives that release formaldehyde, triggering skin irritations and even heart palpitations.
4) FRAGRANCE - if you see the word "fragrance" on the ingredient list it means synthetic ingredients that can cause allergic reactions.
5) ALCOHOL - dries out hair so avoid hairsprays and volumizers, which contain tons of alcohol.
6) PHTHLATES, (pronounced thowl-ates) - used to stabilize fragrances, also makes plastics flexible and is very toxic.
7) SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE - used because it is an inexpensive detergent and makes mixtures foam well but has cancer causing properties.
8) BETAINE - used in shampoos as an emulsifying agent and thickener, can cause a red, drying rash on your scalp, around the eyes and along the neck, with flaking, peeling, and itching.
9) PARABENS - preservatives that have been identified as clear-cut xenoestrogens which are synthetic toxic substances.

As an advocate of natural remedies, I believe in the immediate and long term benefits of using only a natural, organic shampoo for your hair and scalp which is critically important.

The right combination of natural herbal extracts, vitamins C and E, tea tree oil and more will provide highly reparative ingredients will add necessary moisture to the hair shafts and scalp. And the body responds quickly to "natural" as you will see.

Three highly effective ingredients in our HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT includes tea tree oil, shea butter and urea . These three ingredients provide a powerful formula to relieving dry hair.
Here's why:

Tea Tree Oil: has extraordinary medicinal qualities and has a very helpful restorative effect upon application.

Shea Butter: has a soothing, moisturizing and protecting effect and helps cell regeneration and capillary circulation.

Urea: has superior humectant properties that greatly adds much needed moisture to the hair shafts and scalp.

Remember, a natural shampoo doesn't disturb the natural PH of the hair like most commercial shampoos and products do. It soothes and hydrates the scalp for long lasting relief and health.
Please keep me posted on your progress Hillwa.

Nanette
