More information on Breast Cancer and Body Products

Time to stop using those store bought body care products and soaps. The evidence is piling up to suggest that the 'environmental estrogen' found in these products cause breast cells to divide. Watch this video for more information and buy natural. Lora's Beauty uses no 'environmental estrogen' causing products in our soaps, body butters, or any products.

Lora's Hot Oil Hair Treatment

Whew! It's been in the upper 90's for a couple days now and even though I love the warmth it tends to make my hair pretty dry and frizzy. Last night I experimented with a hot oil hair treatment. I mixed together some olive oil, avocado oil, glycerine, and essential oils and heated in the microwave for about 15 seconds. I then coated my hair with the oil and put a shower cap on. I left the oil in my hair for about 30 minutes then washed it out. This morning my hair feels significantly softer. I'm working to perfect the treatment (perhaps add some honey). Once I've perfected it and tried it a few more times look for the new product in Lora's online store.

New use for Lora's Soap

I was searching the other day at the grocery store for shampoo that did not contain sulfates. Strangely enough almost all shampoo contains this harsh chemical detergent. It is added to shampoo, usually as Sodium laureth sulfate, or sodium lauryl ether sulfate (SLES), to produce better lather. What it does to your hair, however, is to dry it by stripping essential oils and damage the hair follicles which could lead to hair loss.

During my search, I asked myself why do you wash your hair anyway? To clean it obviously. What's a good cleaning product that contains all natural ingredients and the best oils available with no sulfates? Lora's bath soap!

I left the store without buying shampoo and later that night I tried washing my hair with the bath soap. It works great! My hair was left clean, soft, and best of all no harsh chemical was used!

I highly recommend using Lora's bath soap for your hair as well! Give it a try!
