Hope you’re all having a fab September so far.
So as I am just obsessed with everything beauty related (mainly hoarding beauty products and trying everything out) I do pick up some tips and tricks along the way.
Since Moroccan Oil came onto the beauty scene I have never been without a bottle (or two) sitting on my vanity. I am always changing up my hair style/colour so its not always in the best condition. I also am a slave to my GHD straighteners, I just can’t give it up. Moroccan Oil has been my saviour though. It always leaves my hair feeling moisturised and healthy looking.
I am mixed race (half black Caribbean and half Chinese) so my hair is thick and quite curly naturally. I am always on the hunt for hair products packed with oils and all that good stuff! Due to how much I dye and straighten my hair, my natural curls don’t curl like they used to. From the roots its really curly, almost frizzy and on the ends its just dead straight. *weeps*
This is where Moroccan Oil/Argan Oil comes in. . .
This bad boy is 100% Natural Argan Oil that my best friend picked up from Morocco. Its a little expensive but its worth every penny. This natural stuff doesn’t smell pleasant at all though, so you know its the real deal. Using this leaves my hair soft and healthy. I swear this is what makes my hair stay thick and grow fast too! This is deffiniately my holy grail hair product.
- Use a generous amount on dry hair and leave it over night.
- Wash your hair as normal in the morning (or after a few hours)
- Use a penny sized amount on towel dried hair, leave it for 5-10 minutes before blow drying.
- Use a peas sized amount on dry/styled hair for a sleek, shiny finish.
If you can’t get hold of 100% Natural Argan oil, Coconut oil is just as good as a leave in just before washing. I wouldn’t recommend using this on dry hair personally as it does leave a greasy residue.
Have you tried this?
Let me know how it went for you 🙂
Last week I decided to treat my hair to a DIY hair mask. I love love love hair masks especially for my bleached blonde hair.
I have a few favourite hair masks already but I really wanted to see if a DIY hair mask would give it an extra boost of goodness.
There are so many DIY hair masks out there, I went for the Banana and Avocado mix.
For extra moisture I added 100% Organic Argan oil.
Banana contains vitamins, antitoxins and potassium. This is amazing for dry and brittle hair. It strengthens the hair follicles preventing breakage and split ends. Banana can maintain the hairs natural elasticity and promotes healthy hair growth.
Avocado is loaded with tons of vitamins, natural oils that give your hair lustre and shine. It is also known to nourish the hair and protect it from breakage and split ends.
I used one avocado and mushed it together with one banana. I mixed it all together by hand which was a big mistake! You want the mix to be really smooth with no bits in at all because it is a nightmare to get the little bits out. Trust me! I made that mistake already *cries*. My little sister had to help me get the little bits of banana out, bless her!
I added about two table spoons of 100% Organic Argan oil. If you know me you know that I love to try anything that contains argan oil. I use the Argan oil by Organix in my hair while its wet and after i’ve straightened it. I swear by it, it really leaves my hair silky smooth and healthy. The argan oil will help with moisture and nourish your hair. Here is my hair after using the mask. I didn’t notice the results until after I blow-dried and styled my hair. My hair felt strong and soft and the same time. One thing I would do differently is proportion control. I think I would add more argan oil and less banana to get extra noticeable moisture. I will try other masks and find a perfect one for my hair. Hope you found this helpful.
What are your favourite DIY hair masks?
