Maple Holistics Silk18 Shampoo is a shampoo good for men, women and children with all hair and scalp types. It is especially good for repairing dry, damaged hair with it's blend of 18 amino acids. Amino acids are protein building blocks. The 18 amino acids in this shampoo are derived from silk and help to strengthen the strands of hair and protect the hairs from damage and breakage. This shampoo contains botanical keratin which is another protein beneficial for strengthening hair. 

Our hair is made of hard keratin protein just like our nails. Skin is also made of keratin, soft keratin protein. Nutrients in our diet help our bodies create strong, healthy keratin cells for good hair, skin and nails. Applying keratin and other proteins to our hair and nails is beneficial as well. 

Professional keratin protein treatments done in salons straighten and smooth dry unruly hair. Using a shampoo that contains proteins will also help the hair look smoother and less fly away plus, the hair will be less damaged from the heat from blow dryers, flat and curling irons. 

Panthenol, aka Vitamin B5, is another nice shampoo ingredient for strengthening, conditioning and adding shine to hair. You can see it's in there, too!

The Silk18 shampoo also contains hair loving argan oil, jojoba oil and glycerin to moisturize the hair and give it amazing shine! 

This shampoo is safe for color treated hair and is great for people with sensitive skin. 

I tried it!
I love a shampoo that really lathers up. I feel like it's foaming away all the dirt, excess oils and dead skin flakes. You only need a quarter sized dollop of Maple Holistics Silk18 Shampoo to create rich lather that leaves your hair feeling super clean and fresh. 

It has a very light scent of vanilla which is perfect for people who are sensitive to smells and those who don't like hair scents competing with their body wash scents and perfume scents.

I find it leaves my hair feeling smooth and silky with beautiful shine. There is a Maple Holistics Silk18 Conditioner which also contains their blend of 18 silk amino acids along with shea butter, jojoba oil, argan oil, aloe and more.

Dermatofibroma on Leg

A Dermatofibroma is an unsightly brown or red bump that is very common on the legs. They are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas and are more common in women than men. They can hurt, itch and become inflamed easily. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  I have tried lots of home remedies on my dermatofibroma. Some help it look better than others but the ugly thing is still there! Read more about dermatofibroma remedies. There is only one way to remove it for It must be surgically excised out. A dermatofibroma goes deep into the skin. It will only grow back if it is cut off of the skin at surface level. The problem with the removal is it leaves a long scar that is about 2 inches or so long. It has to be done that way to be able to sew the skin back together so it is smooth and not puckery. Here is a picture of a scar from the removal of a dermatofibroma. This scar was also treated with a laser to imp

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out.

A dermatofibroma is a tan to brown benign raised bump more common in women than men and occur commonly on the legs. The bump feels hard under the skin and can be itchy, tender and easily irritated.

They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  Be careful when shaving because a dermatofibroma may bleed and become sore if nicked. Don't think you can get rid of it by shaving it off. It will be an awful looking sore and will j
