Yerba Hair Care, Herbal Concentrate

It's been some time and due to a new baby, new job my blog has fallen to the wayside, however if you are following me on Instagram you should have been in the loop so to speak.

I am still a product junkie and still in love with my hair. Thankfully after the birth of my son I havent had too much shedding and I am aiming to keep it that way.  I came upon a thread on Long Hair Care forum that mentioned this hair care line by Taos Herb. They have  a shampoo, a conditioner and a concentrate among several other herbs on the site.

I purchased the concentrate and will be using it for 3 months and evaluating my hair after to see if I will continue.  Below is information on Yerba Hair Care.

The early Spanish explorers were given a secret to healthy hair by the indigenous people of the American Southwest. Today we bring you this traditional herbal therapy in naturally infused Yerba Shampoo, Yerba Conditioner and Yerba Concentrate

Yerba Hair Care is made with 100% sustainably wildcrafted Negrita (Scarlet Globemallow) and Amole (Yucca) herbs. These herbs were used in ancient times for washing and conditioning the hair by the indigenous native people of the Southwest. The benefits are many:
A natural conditioning effect is produced by the pure extracts of the herbs.
Unlike most "natural" herbal hair care products that contain only tiny amounts of herbal ingredients, Yerba Hair Care contains large amounts of the active herbs -over 50%- assuring highest standard of quality and the most benefit to your hair

Ingredients: Yerba de la Negrita (Scarlet Globemallow), Yucca root (Amolé), polysorbate 20, essential oils of orange, osmanthus, rosewood, rose, ginger, violet leaf, grapefruit, black current, cucumber, eucalyptus, pine, phenoxyethanol, caprylyl glycol, sorbic acid.

Coconut Vinegar

I am a believer of Apple Cider Vinegar or plain White Vinegar. It truly keeps my dandruff at bay when I use it religiously. I saw this Coconut Vinegar browsing on Vitacost years ago and never got it until recently. I'm intrigued to see how this works out with my protective styles. Whenever I am in a protective style and my scalp is accessible , I use only a ACV to keep my scalp free and breathable. Whenever I take my style down , the hair is in better condition than if I had used something heavier with oils in it.

Coconut Secret Organic Raw Coconut Vinegar Description
More Nutritious Than Apple Cider Vinegar
100% Organic
High in FOS
Made From Raw Coconut Tree Sap

Health Secrets of Coconut Vinegar
When the coconut tree is tapped it produces a highly nutrient-rich "sap" that exudes from the coconut blossoms. This sap is very low glycemic, and is an abundant source of 17 amino acids, minerals, vitamin C, broad-spectrum B vitamins, and has a nearly neutral pH.

Small batches ensure that our raw, certified organic Vinegar made from this natural sap, is an unheated, enzymatically alive product, naturally aged for 8 months to one year. Coconut Vinegar nutritionally exceeds other vinegars in its amino acid, vitamin and mineral contents, and is an excellent source of FOS (a prebiotic that promotes digestive health).

I will keep my recipe very simple.

1 tablespoon of Coconut Vinegar
1 cup of water.

Brand Ambassador : Sarenzo Bath and Body

I am happy to say that I am now a Brand Ambassador for Sarenzo Bath and Body. I have been a fan of this company for a few years now. In the near future, I will start to blog about items that I have purchased and continue to buy. If you are not a follower of mine on Instagram, please join me over there as well.  I tend to post a lot of reviews and pictures of items that I love because of the ability and ease of Instagram to share content with your followers.

Due to my son and I having really dry and sensitive skin, we only use three brands in the house that have proven to be tried and true over the years. Those three companies are,  Nubian Heritage, Shea Moisture and Sarenzo Bath and Body for our skin care, feminine care and facial care.

I love the ingredients that are added to the body care items as well as the scents. Its almost to the point where I would like to have a scratch and sniff on the screen when ordering because the company offers such a wide variety of fragrances.

I've been protective styling so much that I have narrowed my hair products down to items that I get locally so I don't frequent the companys hair product side as much as I do the skincare but please do not let that stop you. They are one of the few companies that do not put shea butter in their products and I LOVE it.

Stay tuned for sale information as well as any new and upcoming products from the line.

My favorite and body  staple items are as listed below,
