Healixer: New Product For Your Coils and Skin
With the winter months coming, and the air getting colder, black skin and hair gets dryer and dryer. Keeping our skin and hair moisturized is already a feat and is even more challenging during this time of year. Philadelphia Hair Stylist, Terrell Maurice has created a new Skin and Hair Care line to help us out this winter. Healixer is said to heal dry skin, and aid in those who suffer from eczema.
Healixer uses natural and essential oils with healing properties such as grapeseed oil, rose hip, lemon grass, vitamin e, olive oil. “I remember seeing my grandmother use olive oil on her skin, today she is still beautiful to me, from there I experimented with different essential oils that helped heal me,” says Terrell.
Terrell Maurice, is originally from Jacksonville, FL, and has been selling his new skin care line and free-lance hair styling in Philadelphia for the past year. His inspiration behind Healixer, was to find a way to heal his eczema that he developed as a child, but doing so in the natural way. “When I was younger, I developed eczema all over my body, and had to use medicated creams that made matters worse.” Today Healixer has helped him tame the itch and dryness, and he wants to help others overcome this ongoing issue.
Healixer’s Goddess Glow, is a lightweight oil that boosts collagen in skin, while also adding a glow. A favorite of the owner, Terrell, is the Face and Beard Serum for men, and the Moisture Mousses, for moisturizing our sometimes dry and brittle hair. “They’re luxuriously rich, yet light with whipped shea butters”.
Eczema and dryness has been an ongoing issue for African and African Americans and has always been a struggle to combat. Although eczema is most common in children, adults can also experience the painful itch. While there is not a cure for eczema, it is important to stay hydrated with water, moisturize daily, and try not to scratch, to minimize scarring. These same methods will help, with a dry scalp as well.
