Guess What?

Vo Cam- Long Bien Market

Why do some Vietnamese people dry orange skins or grapefruit skins for? Yes, they don't want to waste these useful vitamins for their hair which they dont need to pay a penny for. This is one of the reasons why Vietnamese girls have such beautiful, long, natural hair.

Vo Buoi

Thanks to Mark for this pic
This natural treatment which is an alternative to using high technique and expensive stuff. Why don't you try this out by drying the fruit skins and boiling them in water before washing your hair in the liquid to see the difference.

It used to be eggs, then beer that were good for the hair. What harm could fruit do?

Your blog is an interesting insight into Vietnam and Vietnamese culture. Other than Vietnamese food ( which is again Americanized I assume)my exposure to Vietnam is zilch so thanks for your blog.

That is some interesting beauty method! Anything that saves me money! I've been following your blog for a while and I noticed you worked in the tourism industry. Do you know a good place ot get started to plan a trip to Vietnam. I've been there twice but just to visit my mom's old village- never having enough time to do tourist stuff. I want to take my husband there one day. He's a Vietnamese American but he's never been there.

are those grapefruits or pomelo? interesting natural remedy...and in directly protecting the environment too :)

Trangie said...

Is it scientifically proven? Just kidding...I heard of it from others but never actually tried it myself. When I was growing up in Vietnam, people use lá me, lá bồ kết, and lá bưởi...but not the bưởi shells.

Perhaps I should start collecting pomelo shells from now on.

My grandmother fed me dried orange peels to ward off colds...Do you think this is why I have such pretty hair?

We also made candy from the orange peels.

I don't recognize the second picture...what are those things drying there? They almost look like green onions.

Oh my goodness! I was wondering why my mother had a bunch of dried out orange skins in the "fridge". She is out of town and I was cleaning up her house and I threw them out. Oh no!
