How To Get Your Silkiest Hair?

Lame Dress Tanvii.com 3

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. Shahnaz 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. I just applied this hair mask again and it always works like a charm ... 


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!

  1. So when you get in the shower - do we shampoo and condition, or just rinse it out?

    1. I usually do it on a day when I can avoid shampooing. Just rinse it out.

  2. Having natural hair, I tend to use a lot of natural ingredients as well like honey, avocado, olive oil, etc. It's amazing how many things in your kitchen can be used in your hair.

  5. You're my kind of girl: I love using natural, organic products in my kitchen for my beauty & hair needs. I've used this mask before and totally forgot about it. It's going back into rotation now that I'm doing water only washing on my natural hair again. Thanks for sharing!
