Did you know??
Although using avocados and bananas are all the buzz now to get soft and shiny hair, all it will get you is a messy kitchen and bathroom. These products are great to help your hair for one day, but the proteins in them are way too big for your hair to absorb. And unless you are going to use them each day (yikes!), then you should head to a beauty supply store and check out some Vegan products that use "hydrolyzed" proteins - proteins from avocados and bananas that actually are small enough to help your hair.

Herbed Sea Salt

The concept of making your own concoction for a seasoning is nothing new, but I find that this little mixture seems to work for most grilled foods such as Grilled Asparagus with Rosemary Herbed Salt and fresh fruits like Watermelon Slices with Basil Sea Salt. This recipe is an adaptation from Bryant Terry's Vegan Soul Kitchen, which is an incredible cookbook with fantastic ideas and adaptations of traditional soul food. I find his seasoning calls for just a dash too much salt for my own personal taste, so I've adjusted it just slightly. Essentially, you can follow the below instructions with any of your favorite herbs (or mix together), and you have a delicious seasoning.

3 tablespoons coarse sea salt
2 tablespoons of your favorite herb (fresh or dried-- I find fresh works better if you're planning on using all you're making at the moment, but tends to get sticky afterwards... if you're making this to save for later, go with dried)

In a coffee grinder or small blender (i.e. the Magic Bullet), combine the herbs and seas salt, making sure to mix well. Store in an airtight container. If it appears to become sticky later, blend it again.

Shake over your delicious vegan meal and enjoy!
