3. Gugo Bark & Calamansi

Gugo Bark & Calamansi

Gugo Bark (Entada Phaseoloides) comes from a very large tree found in the Philippines where it is widely used in hair care.

Saponine is a group of chemical compounds found in gugo bark and is beneficial for treatment of hair fall, eczema and dandruff.

Calamansi (Filipino Lime) comes from the citrus family and is said to be slightly different than regular lime. The calamansi is used because of its vitamin C potency and we all know Vitamin C is great for hair and for promoting healing properties in cells.

When the gugo bark is  soaked in water it will produce a lather which may be used as shampoo. To prepare your gugo bark cleanser soak the gugo bark in water for at least 30 minutes.

Squeeze out the juice in the water and put in the juice of 3 calamansi. Mix well and use this as your cleanser. It is supposed to cut down dandruff and use over time should prevent dandruff altogether.


About Marsha Buchanan


As a Jamaican girl raised in a devout church family headed by my mother, I have always had my natural hair, no chemical processing. After years of mistreating it , often ignorant of that fact, I began my healthy hair journey in January 2013 in fact, I have seen to it that my entire household falls in line where this is concerned. When I am not poring over some hair blog or forum I spend my time teaching English to rowdy high school students (ok maybe I have some little sweethearts in the mix), mothering the most adorable two year old on this globe, or rushing to meet the deadline for a writing project on Elance. In my spare time I enjoy a stroll along the beach with my doting husband.
