Hair Care, The Natural Way!

There are few things better than a nice, relaxing shower to brighten your morning or wash away the stress of the day.
The Enagic® ANESPA, home spa system is the perfect addition to your bathroom. The ANESPA unit removes chlorine from your shower or bath water and its dual cartridge system contains therapeutic ingredients that have a relaxing hot spring effect! Pure genius.
Did you know that your skin is the largest organ of your body? While research is still being done to test just how much our skin absorbs, we should take caution when choosing what to apply on our skin and scalp. A recent study by the Environmental Working Group found 16 chemicals typically found in cosmetics and body care products present in blood and urine samples of twenty girls.1
You’ve chosen Kangen Water® because you know that it is what’s best for you internally. Now it is time to consider what is best externally.
The shower is a great place to escape, but it’s hard to relax when you realize how many chemicals you are pouring over your body, from the soap to the shampoo.
According to Jacqueline Krohn, M.D., “Once a chemical has penetrated the stratum corneum (the most superficial layer of skin), it moves through the epidermis and into the dermis. Then the rich blood supply of the dermis readily transports the chemical into the bloodstream.”2
The good news!
Here at Enagic® we care about what goes on the outside as much as we do the inside. So we’ve provided a great “recipe” for homemade, all natural shampoo – featuring Beauty Water. And because you get to choose which essential oil and which herbs to add, your scent will be unique. No longer limited by what is found in the beauty section of the drug store what will your signature scent be?

Basic Shampoo


2 tablespoons liquid castile soap (Dr. Bronner’s)
1 cup Beauty Water
1/4 cup fresh herbs (2 tablespoons dried)
1 teaspoon almond or apricot kernel oil
2 drops of essential oil
Place herbs in a clean glass jar with a lid.
Pour Beauty Water over herbs and let steep overnight.
Strain the liquid from the herbs.
Add the castile soap and almond or apricot oil.
Mix thoroughly.
Add essential oil and mix again.
Pour into recycled shampoo bottle.
You can also spritz the Beauty Water on your hair as conditioner. It helps detangle and reveal natural shine!
Enjoy your shower, knowing that you are doing what’s best for your body, inside and out!
