Beauty Finds: Hair Care Bars Part 1

I’ve been reducing or trying to reduce my plastic waste for the past few years. Somethings are easier than others to replace with non plastic. Hair products aren’t going to to be anytime soon unless part 2 of The Hair Care Bars do a miracle on this girl’s fine wavy stubborn hair.

A friend recommended Lush hair bars. She’s also on a plastic freer journey. I should have taken my own advise from my last trip to Lush. Lush is a I like concept brand, the products just don’t do it for me. My hair however wasn’t fairing well from Freshly Cosmetics duo, it was that time of the month making me feeling a little down with I need a boost (with shopping. I always say shopping is modern day hunting. The thrill of the chase hunting down items adrenalin low key pumping) so I was okay lets try Lush hair bars to see if they’ll revitalise my hair. Something I’m working this year is to listen to my intuition more. So many times I’ve gone against that voice, not listened and I should have. That and not buying unwanted things, saving pennies. 

Anyways, my hair time is fine, oily easily damaged. You’d think not colouring it, no heat treatment, eating as healthy as I can, all the hair foods and taking brewers yeast tablets my hair would be in okay condition. Nope. I blame pollution! And the wrong products. Continue reading “Beauty Finds: Hair Care Bars Part 1”

Summer Hair Care

If you’re like me, love the beach and sea, lucky to live along the coast, have fine hair and visit the beach almost every day during the summer, your hair might not love the salt water as much as you. Over the course of summer, salt water, sweat, sunscreen, humidity can damage my hair. When it’s fine hair, damage is emphasised 3 fold.

This summer, I think I may have the damage under control. Previous years I left coconut oil in overnight after being in the sea. My hair didn’t respond well. I’ve found after rinsing salt water out in the shower, it needs some sort of moisture locked back in. I’m sure my hairdresser will have their say next time I go in, however I’m finding the following’s working out okay keeping my hair healthy this summer: 

The Right Shampoo and Conditioner

More so the right conditioner. For a few years I’ve been using hairdresser recommended conditioner. While it’s natural, cruelty free, this year I decided to look for another. One reason price, the other it contained silicones which aren’t kind with Continue reading “Summer Hair Care”

DIY Vanilla Coconut Lip Scrub

I have 2 lip scrub recipes for you! While some may think lip scrubs are only for the winter when we notice our lips drying and flaking thanks the cold chapping them, I believe like all exfoliating it’s done all year round. I also believe always have a good lip balm near by even if you love lipstick. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

For my girlfriends Christmas presents last year I was stuck what to get them Continue reading “DIY Vanilla Coconut Lip Scrub”

Infrared Hair Treatment

I’m normally in and out the hairdressers in under 30 minutes. A trim, blow dry naturally and go. Last week I was in there for 2 hours!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The lady in PAS, Pelo Arte Sano in C/Duc 14, an all organic hairdressers after asking what I wanted done was okay, but first we need to address your scalp. I knew parts of my parting were red, but put down to the sun those parts have been red for years. If you’re my Mum you’ll say Continue reading “Infrared Hair Treatment”

First Impressions: Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse. 

A few weeks ago watching Chriselle Lim’s YouTube Winter Favourites video, I was curious try an apple cider vinegar (ACV) hair rinse she recommend by dpHUE. She used it on the days she didn’t use normally shampoo and helped her hair be more manageable. My hair’s fine, oily, somewhere in-between straight and slight wave, stubborn holding styles apart from straight at the hairdressers.brownies-4

I’m pretty low maintenance when it comes to my hair. I can count on one hand how many times I used my hairdryer in the past year. Continue reading “First Impressions: Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse. “
