Hi dear readers,
Five days ago I wrote a post about DIY Beauty, the first one of the ultimate Get Natural! series I’m introducing on my blog. This is totally new on my blog so I hope you will enjoy reading it ‘cause I will be posting about this topic quite a lot the next few weeks. These series will be in English. If you’re interested in having a Dutch translation, don’t hesitate to do a request in the comment box below.
Getting natural has many advantages:
- No chemicals included, so no harm can be done
- Results are always positive
- You can make your own products perfectly suitable for your hair/skin type
- You make something fully yourself, you can be creative and even make your own labels for your own shampoo and stuff. How awesome is that?
- It’s cheaper and you can do a long time with the products you buy
Have I convinced you yet? So today I will be sharing my own recipe for an intensive hairmask that will make your hair grow faster and healthier, a shampoo and a secret oil that will make your skin feel amazing.
My hair type: dry because of the hair dyes I use, split ends, thick and with lots of volume
My skin type: suffer from acne, greasy skin
° Coconut oil: prevents protein loss in hair, moisturizing, nourishing, in combination with honey and yoghurt coconut oil can even be more beneficial, anti hairloss, dandruff prevention
° Honey: lightening the hair, boosts hairgrowth, reduces breakage, antibacterial ingredients, cleans thoroughly
° Yogurt: dandruff treatment, prevents hairloss, improves hairgrowth
° Lemon: lightening the hair, vitamin C makes the hair strong, adds life to frizzy hair, cleans the scalp
Recipe SHAMPOO (I used an old bottle of Yves Rocher Micellair Water):
° Apple Cider Vinegar: contains antibacterial and antifungal elements, cleansing, reduces frizz, adds shine, detangles, prevents hairloss and stimulates hairgrowth effectively, prevents split ends and breakage
° Rose Oil: for a nice scent, apple cider vinegar doesn’t have the greatest smell so make sure to wash your hair with a scented conditioner afterwards 🙂
Magic oil for the skin = Castor oil –> right now you can do a great deal at Holland & Barrett, where you have the second product for free!
Benefits of Castor oil:
- Reduces acne
- Anti aging
- Fades imperfections
- Anti eye bags
- Fights dry lips (I also put the oil in my lips)
- Prevents wrinkles, makes the skin tight
