Logona Color Creme

Face-ology, Makeup Zone
I have tried Logona Color Creme, which is totally Natural, and comes from Germany. I have been burned at the salon a few times before. My scalp usually feels like it is on fire after having my hair colored and without going totally gray (I am too young for that!) I decided to look into alternatives. Naturtint has too many chemicals, it is better than some, but still has PPD in it and other things that I do not want to have touching my scalp and entering my blood stream, which I have heard that the chemicals do... Check out Logona's line of all natural cream hair colors with henna. I was kind of wary of using it, because of the henna, but I find if you go a bit darker and stay away from the redder shades, it comes out very nice. I have medium blonde but my natural color is 80% gray with...

Henna – Light Mountain and Rainbow

I've tried many of the natural pre-mixed products--I had most of them available to me when I owned a health food store in the 90's--but they all seemed to irritate my scalp, and they still do. So, when my hair became salt and pepper, and I started to look washed out, I decided to try henna again. I had used it when my hair was all-over dark, and loved the red highlights. I had no idea what it would do now that the dark was almost gone. The only brand carried by my local health food store (upstate New York) was Rainbow. I could have ordered Light Mountain, which I had used before, but (typical of myself) I wanted to do it NOW!! I bought light brown, took it home and mixed it. I used some vinegar (recommended to "hold" for the gray), some olive oil (it makes it easier to rinse out), a...

Southern Magnolia Minerals

I've been using Southern Magnolia mineral make-up for about 5 years now. I originally found them on E-Bay, but they also have their own website. They have a wide range of colors and formulas for different skin tones and types, plus they also sell bulk sizes, brushes, cosmetic bags, mixing "swirly" bowls, and skin care products. I am 42 but have oily skin so I need something to stop the shine I get mid-day, and their "Shine Stopper" does just that. Their "Sun Kiss" bronzer makes an ideal blush - very natural looking. The coverage is sheer and natural, but definitely covers what you want hidden. After using their products I have never gone back to liquid foundation again. The customer service is great - my order always arrives quickly & includes free samples of other products (eye ...
