How to get your silkiest hair?8:00 PM
So you already know that I am not much of a make up person. But what I am is a big DIY Beauty person. If its in my kitchen and if it has (most things do!) a beauty benefit, then I am your gal! I have practically applied everything in my kitchen, at one point or another, on my face, hair or body.
It probably started way back, when I was a kid and used to watch the afternoon Women's shows on Doordarshan. Shehnaaz Hussain used to be a regular on them and she was big on using gharelu nuskas (translation: home remedies). And since while growing up there weren't many cosmetic options available (and if there were, I wasn't allowed to use them by my mom!) I used a lot of natural ingredients. e.g. whisked egg hair mask, full creme yogurt hair mask, turmeric and sandalwood face mask, lemon and orange peel on nails, etc. etc. Then in high school, Anita introduced me to Rima Soni's book: Simply Beautiful. It was filled with hundreds of easy-diy-beauty ideas.
Long story short (not really!) I have been hooked for a long time. Hence, when I found The Style Dossier Blog, it was like I had hit another gold mine. They have many amazing-easy-diy-ideas, which I have been following for about 2 years now. One of which is listed below. I had just applied this hair mask again on Monday and it always works like a charm. ... I will shut up now and let the dossier-sisters speak! (:
I don't know about y'all but during the summer our hair gets really dry, we've recently been using a new homemade deep conditioner that only takes 3 ingredients. Most of it you might have in your own kitchen. Just gather 1 avocado, 1 tbsp olive oil and 1 tbsp honey. Mash the avocado in a bowl with a fork then add the olive oil and honey, stir together and voila a very moisturizing deep conditioner. It's that simple! We like to put it on dry hair, really focusing on the ends and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes. Then just jump in the shower and wash it out. When you get out of the shower your hair will feel soft and silky. We highly recommend this conditioner to anyone especially during the summer when your hair is exposed to all the heat and chlorine. This deep conditioner will definitely help restore moisture. The best part is, if you use this conditioner once a week your hair will only keep getting better. Here's to beautiful summer hair!
