If you read the entire list, you can see that the word carcinogen pops up a heck of a lot. So those who are still wondering about whether or not microwaves promote cancer, there goes your answer!
But that’s not all, microwaves have also been connected to a variety of other illnesses and symptoms, including headaches, dizziness, swollen lymph nodes, impaired cognition, weakened immune system, irritability, depression, appetite loss, night sweats, insomnia, nausea, vision problems and frequent urination.
Still, these symptoms have also been linked to other radiation-producing devices like cell phones, cell phone towers and Wi-Fi routers (but that’s another story).
How to properly warm your oils for hair treatments
Unless you don’t mind placing dead, carcinogenic oils* into your scalp, you should instead resort to other methods that are just as simple. Remember, whatever you put onto your skin absorbs, so you can imagine what putting that onto your head for many years could do to your brain!
Likely, you’ve seen people do this before with hard oils like shea and chilled coconut oil* — all you have to do is place the oil inside of a glass or metal bowl, and set it inside of a pot of water that is set on medium.
You don’t want the water to boil because it will produce too much heat, which will also kill the nutrients within your oils. Just keep an eye on it and once it’s warm enough, set it aside and use it.
Keep this method in mind if you are one who likes to melt hard butters* for hair or body use. You don’t want to radiate anything that is going to seep into your skin. Also, never place the oil or butter directly into a heated pot because this will warm it up too much, and will again alter the nutritional state.
As naturals, we have to be mindful of what we put into and onto our bodies. If we aren’t keen about using chemicals on our locks, then why would we allow radiated oils*?
This poses a huge health risk that can and should be avoided by all means. The method I present takes a little more work, but can’t the same be said for maintaining natural hair?
You decided to take this journey even with all the hard work and resistance needed to get the results you want. So don’t start to slack now!
Are you surprised to learn about the damaging effects of microwaves? Will you continue to use it or will you take heed and use the stove top instead?
