My favorite hair care products

 

 

It was after my hair started falling out that I decided to take extra care of my hair. There are many hair care products in the market, but finding the best and most suitable one for your hair is not an easy task. In fact, it becomes impossible to know which product suits your hair unless you use them for a month or so.

 

My hair care kit includes a shampoo, a conditioner, hair oil and mask. I am not very fond of using hair spray or hair gel and try to avoid them as much as possible. Being a fan of natural products, I prefer the “Thicker Hair by Just Natural” shampoo for my hair.

 

All the products from “Just Natural” are free from alcohol and other chemicals that are not good for your hair fall. Another advantage of the “Thicker Hair by Just Natural” shampoo is that it does not contain apple cider vinegar. The aloe-vera based shampoo has good smell that ensures my hair remains smooth and shiny.

 

Coconut oil is one product that I use regularly on my hair. I started using coconut oil from an early age and many hair stylists have told me a number of times that my thick hair is because of the quality of coconut oil I use. Most of the time, we make coconut oil for hair at home only. Unrefined coconut oil does not contain any chemicals and it’s all natural. I keep coconut oil for almost 30 minutes in my hair and then wash it using a natural shampoo.

Hair conditioner is a very important product for your hair. Every time I wash my hair with shampoo, I use a hair conditioner that conditions my hair and makes it softer and shinier.   I prefer to use Silk 18 Natural Hair Conditioner for my hair. It contains 18 silk amino acids that do an outstanding job to keep your hair healthy. It is perfect for all kinds of hair and retains the moisture content in the hair. Silk 18 natural hair conditioner does not contain any artificial chemicals or colors. In fact, it contains 100% natural vanilla that provides a natural aroma to your hair.

Even though I am not very fond of hair gels, “John Masters Organics Gel” is the one I use during emergencies, when I have to attend parties. It makes my hair look stylish and shiny in addition to providing good hold.

These are my favorite hair care products. All are natural and healthy and have helped me reduce hair fall in the last couple of years.

 

 

Why I Don't Like to Wear a Lot of Makeup

 

Wearing makeup looks to be for modern women a must do, although there is nowhere written in stone that this is something that they cannot live without. What I think that it happens is that an entire industry is trying to convince women that they cannot be beautiful unless they cake in their faces with layers and layers of makeup. Combine that with unrealistic beauty standards created by Photoshopped celebrities, and you get why so much money is spent yearly on cosmetics. I personally don’t like wearing too much makeup, and I want to tell you why.

I find makeup fake

I never want to come across as a fake person, so, if I wore a lot of makeup, I suppose that it would be like wearing a mask. Too much makeup usually means drawing attention more to the makeup you are wearing than to yourself, as you really are. I noticed a long time ago that people change their perception of you, if you are wearing too much makeup. So I decided to never lead people to believe I am someone else, since I have no reason to do so.

 

I would have to sacrifice sleep to put together an entire routine

When I saw a friend of mine putting on makeup, I realized how much work that was. She effectively spent an entire hour making sure that everything was in order, that no eyelash went unpainted and that no hair in her eyebrows went uncombed to perfection. At the same time, I put together breakfast, washed a few dishes from the night before and prepared the clothes I needed for the day. Needless to say, she was late after all that, and she always tended to be. Only that it was then that I realized the reason for her tardiness. And I also decided that I had no desire to wake up one hour earlier only to put on makeup.

I know it can be damaging for the skin

Even the best and the highest quality cosmetics sold on the market are still loaded with chemicals and ingredients that should not spend a lot of time glued to your skin. Besides the fact that the skin on your face cannot breathe properly, it also gets caked in with layers of substances that are damaging it on the long run. I simply do not want to be like those women who put on makeup because they are ashamed with how their faces really look like, only because they have been hidden for so long underneath lipstick, foundation, eye shadows, mascara and the like.
