I always find most conversations about exfoliation nearly always centre around the face and body and yet I rarely ever hear about exfoliation of your scalp even though using a hair scrub is just as important! Just like the rest of the body, the skin of the scalp needs to get refreshed once in a while!
Your scalp not only accumulates dead skin cells, in the form of dandruff, but also the residues of styling products, dry shampoos, pollution and excess of sebum leaving it suffocated and greasy.
To get rid of all these impurities and to help unclog pores I do a scrub once a month. This really helps cleanse and purify your scalp so it will not only be able to breathe but also be more receptive to shampoo, hair mask… enabling them to penetrate better and be more effective. It will also activate the blood microcirculation which facilitates the growth of hair. This all basically just means that scrubbing the scalp will be extremely beneficial for the health of the hair.
So, if you are interested in trying a scalp scrub then I have made a really simple recipe that is super easy to make.View Post
I’ve been on a product testing mission recently which means I have used up a loads of the organic and natural products in my bathroom cupboard! The big question now is which were hits and what missed by a country mile and most importantly, would I repurchase any of them? View Post
Last September I posted on Instagram about my hair loss and how much it was concerning me. I was losing clumps of my hair not only every time I shampoo’d or brushed it but also just by running my fingers through my hair. It was starting to have a real impact on my confidence particularly because I had experienced this exact same issue a few years earlier due to a Keratin Treatment I had mistakenly tried and reliving this experience was quite painful and hard to deal with. In an attempt to remedy the hair loss I was currently experiencing I started to do a lot of research into the subject and concluded that the best route of action would be to put in place an effective natural care routine. I now feel happy and proud to say that I solved the problem through perseverance and the careful application of my care which has made me feel so much better about myself again. My hair loss issue has been greatly reduced and new healthy baby hair has once again started to appear! So today I thought I would break down the routine that helped me in the hope that it could help others who might be similarly afflicted.
FYI, hair loss can be due to a myriad of varied reasons: fatigue, stress, change of season, hormonal variations, psychological shock, poor diet or too aggressive hair care … so it goes without saying that it is vitally important to first identify the reasons of your hair loss before trying to tackle it as there will never be a one fix solution.
With Christmas just around the corner it’s once again time to start choosing which Advent calendar you are going to spoil yourself with this year! Advent calendars have all of a sudden become ubiquitous and it seems like every cosmetic brand now has one! I am definitely seeing more and more organic/natural brands selling them too and recently featured one from Mademoiselle BIO on my Instastories which is already out of stock! Not to worry though as I have managed to find another really nice one if you didn’t manage to get your hands on one in time. It’s from the brand Green People and has an absolutely amazing product selection hidden inside! So, let’s get straight to the most important question, what does the Green People Advent Calendar contain?View Post
Today I would like to introduce you to my new hair product crush……..the Neutral Basis range from Waam. I have been lustfully spying on Waam’s products for ages now and desperately wanted to try them out as I have heard so many great things about them on social media. Impressively for me though, I managed to be a proper adult for once and show some restraint and wait until I had time to test and review them properly on my blog! Waam is a natural beauty brand that not only produce the Neutral Basis range but also a selection of raw products, carrier oils, clays, butters and floral waters. Their products are certified organic and vegan and are of course not tested on animals. The core idea behind this range is that you buy the base and then customise it to your specific requirements to create your own bespoke products. If you are a fan of natural beauty and homemade cosmetics then I am pretty sure you’ll treasure this brand just as much as I do! I absolutely love unearthing amazing little discoveries like this!
