HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR HAIR



          The hair reveals your health: if the hair looses the natural shine, tends to get greasy, or gets too dry, falls out like crazy maybe it’s time for you to see a doctor… But if your not ready yet to go and get checked  read the following and I guarantee you results  in no time.
          Start off with the hygiene of your hair . Wash you hair with organic shampoos, stay away from those hard industrial shampoos or shampoos for volume, because they are too alkaline and in time they’ll destroy your hair . There are good ones with extracts of nettle  and chamomile .


          Stop torturing you hair. It is enough to wash and brush your hair , at the same time you’ll be massaging the scalp. Also don’t overuse heat, if you do use heat use a heat protecting spray , so the damage is not so big, and don’t color the hair so often, once a month or even less is the best.  

          So here is  a DO IT AT HOME mask that is easy, cheap and very efficient.

          Mask for dry hair:
INGREDIENTS:  o.5 dl olive oil and 0.5dl ricinus (castor) oil
HOW TO PREPARE IT: Mix the two ingredients and stir well.
USAGE:  apply the mixture at the roots and the ends of the hair. Massage it and put foil over it. Take a wet towel ( hot water) and put it on the foil. And when it gets cold wet it again. Repeat the process for three hours. Wash  the hair and let it air dry.

         I hope this was helpful for some of you. On my next blog post HOW TO MAKE MASKS FOR NORMAL HAIR.

AFFORDABLE GOOD LOOKING SKIN

This three simple steps will help you get a healthy and better looking skin.It’s wery easy and affordable  I hope you’ll try them out. 



 STEP 1

Did you know that Olive oil was used in the past by actresses like a moisturizer. They were putting the oil on a  wet cotton and rub it all over the face, leave it for 10 minutes and then gently blot the face with a paper towel. That was their night cream J. So I tried that for 10 days and there were visible improvements on my skin.Just make sure it is extra virgin olive oil.

             STEP 2

Chamomile tea is a great cleanser for your face. Make the tea in a bigger pot, and then place your face over the pot, but  not to close because you can burn your self . The steam from the tea will open the pores, clean them and then make them appear smaller. Try to do this once a weak. 


 STEP 3


Honey is a very good  mask. Some people use it as a mask for their hair but I’m only using it as a face mask when I really want my skin to get nourished.   as it kills germs and reduces swelling and inflammation. A honey face mask will gently clean your skin, while keeping it healthy, supple and beautiful. directly apply the honey on your skin and after 15 minutes rinse it with warm water.
