Hair Care – How to Care For Your Hair With Fleur De Lis
French herbalist, Louis Pasteur, discovered fleur de sel long ago. This was almost certainly long before the term was widely appreciated or recognized. It’s been used for hundreds of years as a skin cleanser and in anti-dandruff shampoos, among other things. Pasteur wrote extensively about this plant’s power in both medical and culinary uses, so it’s no surprise that his reputation was enhanced when he became the first person to introduce the germ to the world. And yet, only very recently has this powerful antiseptic been appreciated for its benefits as an internal treatment for serious health problems such as chronic fatigue syndrome, heart disease, and multiple sclerosis. There are several important differences between fleur de sel and Pasteur’s original model, but all of these have to do with the way modern scientists have evaluated and valued this exotic plant.
The key difference between fleur de sel and Pasteur’s model is that Pasteur didn’t just look for what went into his food. He looked for what went into his liver, which is where fleur de sel got its name. Like many herbs, fleur de sel has a strong vitamin A base. But Pasteur didn’t just look for the vitamin A; he searched for the entire phytochemical family, which includes carotenoids, flavonoids, terpenoids, and several dozen other substances. These, too, have strong antibacterial and antifungal properties, making them potentially useful as both an internal and external treatment for serious health issues.
But Pasteur did more than find these ingredients. In fact, because he was a meticulous scientist and because he studied plant and animal anatomy, he came up with a detailed diagram of the human body’s functions. This gave him the basic ideas for developing fleur de sel, since a smooth surface would encourage good blood circulation, which would encourage healthy hair and skin, and healthy nails, to name a few. So fleur de sel was born.
By the time Pasteur died, in 1847, the world had learned so much about the function of the body that he was considered a “father of modern medicine”. But although he and others had discovered the secrets of fleur de sel, they still couldn’t quite figure out how to apply it to humans. Pasteurs had also learned that treating animals with fleur de sel is less effective than treating humans, for a variety of reasons. Therefore, today there are many herbal formulas that simply use ingredients from plants (and sometimes other natural resources) to stimulate healthy skin, nails, hair, and tissues.
If you want a really good all-natural fleur de sel formula, look to the Amazon. Here you will find formulations that use many plant-based ingredients, as well as extracts from other natural resources, including coconuts, almonds, and tea tree oil. The extracts from these plants work well together to stimulate healthy hair growth, skin health, as well as to improve digestion. They have very few side effects, so they are a safe choice for people who are very sensitive to other harsh products.
Of course not everyone can go out into the Amazon and get their hands on pure fleur de sel. But there are a number of products available to buy over the internet. The best ones are created by companies who source their products from the Amazon. And since most people can’t visit the rainforest, they don’t have to worry about being exposed to harmful chemicals. Plus they can actually choose ingredients that suit their own needs better, rather than having to conform to what the product developers have in mind.
Another benefit of fleur de sel is that it is less expensive than many of the other hair care products on the market. It is also less likely to damage the scalp, as well as more effective than some of the other options. For this reason, many women are using it in place of another popular chemical shampoo, which costs much more money. Many herbalists have also used it successfully as a natural alternative to harsh chemical shampoos. It can also be used safely with all types of hair, although it will not be effective for people who suffer from hair loss or baldness.
You will want to do your research carefully before you decide on a particular fleur de sel product. It is important that you learn how to apply it correctly, and that you choose one that uses natural ingredients. Make sure you also ask your physician or dermatologist any questions that you may have about using this type of product. You can also purchase it online. Keep in mind that the product instructions will vary according to your specific condition and type of hair.
