Know Your Oils : Moisturizing

Personally, I only really suffer from dull, dry skin during the winter months, tales of winter passed had me researching what would be the best solution for dry skin (especially after being in Gauteng for a week, my skin was very sad) I’ve done some research on what oils will help me best, here are my top picks for moisturizing your skin!

OLIVE OIL

DIY : Easy Peasy Hair Treatment Conditioners

Hiya Poutlings

its that time of year again for salt, sand, sea, wind and lots of sun… here are 3 of my favourite DIY cheap hair treatments, or more of a deep conditioner to give your hair a little bit of love when you’ve abused it a bit too much at the beach.

CONDITIONER 1

ingredients

3 teaspoons of Coconut oil

1 banana

method

mash the banana until it reaches “pudding” like consistency. Sir in the oil – you can use as little or as much as you want, I generally use +/- 3 teaspoons and apply mixture to the ends of your hair for 30 minutes. Rinse out.

CONDITIONER 2

ingredients

1 avacado

3 teaspoons of mayonaise

method

mash the avacado until it reaches “pudding” consitency. Mix in two tablespoons of mayonaise. Apply to the last 3/4 end of your hair for 30 minutes. Rinse out.

CONDITIONER 3

ingredients

1 egg yolk

1/4 cup plain yoghurt

1 tea spoon olive oil

method

Whisk the egg until smooth. Mix in yoghurt and olive oil. Apply to end tips of hair for 30 minutes. Rinse out.

let me know if you have any of your own hair conditioner receipes or if you’ve had any disasters? i’ve heard a couple of horror stories however the above 3 ones haven’t harmed me or my hair.
