    my dermatologist recommend Vaseline petroleum jelly for dry skin.
    it works better than anything and it's also the cheapest by far.

    Didja know.....

    That's interesting Brother James because I was always told the opposite about petroleum jelly. I thought it should never be used as a replacement for lotion, chafing cream, spermicide or vaginal lubricant because it's not water soluble. (Drop a glob in water and you'll see what I mean). It will clog your pores, cause your skin to peel and create problems in a woman's vagina. Now I know this is far more information than you expected as a reply to your comment, but hey, a sister be tired and when that happens I tend to ramble. :)

    Queenie :boring:

    yes NNQueen it is helpful to the skin of that's open to the brisk air
    it's more of a protective barrier from cracking the skin in the winter
    good for hard dry skin likes of the handz , feet , ankle elbows & knees

    it's also harmful in the summer heat for it clogs to where the skin can't
    breath it a strong base and no water added

    it's good and mainly used as a ointment or dressings to sores as a protective
    base from germs and other virus in the air or keep dry from wetness to the skin
    such as urin .

    Yeah,$Rich$, I agree with you. Me personally, I would just use it on my hands and feet as it does tend to clog pores. There are millions of pores on our bodies, we have them in our scalp and on our skin's surface. All over tha' place!. Vaseline is made up of Petroleum which can be found in most African American Hair products e.g.pomades and greases. These are no good for our hair because it clogs our Scalps' pores and thus slows our hair's natural growing process. Also, it can become a breeding ground for bacteria, and bacteria in the scalp is a big no-no!. Besides, it only moisturizes the hair temporarily, it uses the moisture thats already in the hair shaft, but once that's gone, your hair is left with nothing. Mineral Oil is also no good. Both chemicals collect dirt and debris. But it is very beneficial for our hands and feet.

    That is what my Doctor told me as well as my hairdresser. At one time my mom was getting tiny little bumps in her scalp because of using hair grease. A couple of times I would get them too- I wasn't allergic or nothing, it was because my pores were clogged. So, I stopped using it alltogether and now I'm bump free!. Different folks different strokes.......
