A healthy lifestyle has nothing to do with health hair. True or False?

False!

The condition of one's hair is often a direct reflection on one's health.

Hair grows from the roots, which are directly linked to your bloodstream, which is directly linked to the overall health of the body.

Hair roots must have a constant supply of quality proteins (which are the building blocks for hair growth), vitamins and minerals.

To maximize your hair's health, make sure your diet contains the proper nutritional balance!

Some Types of Hair Just Won't Grow. True or False?

True or False: Some types of hair just won't grow.

FALSE!

This is a commonly held belief, particularly among those of us with beautiful curls, but the truth is that textured hair tends to grow at the same rate as most other types of hair – about a half inch per month, or six inches per year, with a growth cycle of about 3-5 years.  

The main difference when it comes to how long your hair will grow comes down to the strength of individual hair strands. Due to the fact that textured hair tends to be more fragile than naturally straight hair, it is more prone to split ends and breakage.  

When it comes to caring for your hair, always think “TLC – Tender Loving Care”: comb and brush your hair gently and less often, try to limit the use of heat and chemicals, be patient and careful when detangling, and keep your hair hydrated and moisturized.

Look for the Seal!

Did you know there's no real regulation for company's claiming to have all-natural products? That's why we took the extra step to have our products and ingredients evaluated by the Natural Products Association (NPA), the nation’s largest and oldest nonprofit dedicated to the natural products industry. We worked with them to ensure that our products are truly natural and chemical free. CARA B Naturally is proud to be the first and only certified natural line of personal care products dedicated to ethnically diverse babies and children. According to NPA guidelines, natural products bearing the NPA seal have met the following criteria: 

  • Natural Ingredients: A product labeled "natural" should be made up of only, or at least almost only, natural ingredients and be manufactured with appropriate processes to maintain ingredient purity.
  • Safety: A product labeled "natural" should avoid any ingredient with a suspected human health risk.
  • Responsibility: A product labeled "natural" should use no animal testing in its development.
  • Sustainability: A product labeled "natural" should use biodegradable ingredients and the most environmentally sensitive packaging.

Look for the seal today!

Why Natural is Best

Do you know why NATURAL is best?

It's important to educate ourselves on the potential dangers of some of the common ingredients found in products we use every day*.  Below is a quick reference list...be sure to check your labels the next time you go shopping!

Parabens are believed to mimic the hormone estrogen and, according to the US Environmental Protection Agency, parabens can interfere with the function of the body's endocrine system.

Sulfates, commonly used in Shampoos, are believed to mimic the hormone estrogen and can cause severe eye damage.

Phthalates, have been shown to cause damage to the liver, kidneys, lungs, and reproductive system; phthalates are commonly used in lotions in the United States, but have been banned in European Union cosmetics.

Petrolatum, often used in moisturizing creams and oils, is derived from petroleum and is linked to potentially cancer-causing impurities; petrolatum is banned in European Union cosmetics.

Mineral oil makes up 100% of some popular baby oils; mineral oil is derived from petroleum, linked to potentially cancer-causing impurities, and known to dehydrate the skin and inhibit the production of natural oils.

At CARA B Naturally, we truly believe our children's skin and hair is naturally beautiful and should be treated as such; it does not need to be chemically altered or weighed down with synthetic products and ingredients...after all, Children Are Always Beautiful, Naturally :)
