Happy Friday! I hope all of you have exciting plans for the weekend. If you do not, feel free to hang around the blog all weekend leaving comments, I would love to make it more interactive. If you have any suggestions for making the blog more interactive please let me know, I would really appreciate it!
Now, let’s get to today’s two part post: empties and favorites!
The last time I had my hair trimmed I was given this tip for getting a healthy shine to my hair, and I have finally gotten around to trying it. If your hair could use a little extra shine, give this a try. I’m glad I did!
Prior to getting in the shower combine your regular amount of shampoo with a dash of baking soda in a bowl and give it a quick mix.
In the shower use the baking soda and shampoo mixture the same way you would use your shampoo on any given day. I was told to repeat this no more than once a week.
On top of giving your hair a healthy shine the baking soda is also supposed to help remove the build up of excess hair product!
As I said, I am happy with the results but I would love to hear from other people who have tried it – what do you think? Was anyone unhappy with the results?
To all my fellow Canadians, I hope you have a fantastic long weekend. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this Canada Day weekend brings some nicer weather.
Thank you for reading and I hope you’ll check back. I do not anticipate the next post will be until next Wednesday.
I’ve been tagged! Thanks for my best friend Jennifer (The Wired Enthusiast) I’ve been tagged (tasked?) to do this Rainbow Tag. Have I said tag/tagged enough? As Jenn mentioned in her post this has been especially popular on YouTube but they are also gaining popularity in the blogging world. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this tag, you go through your favorite products and find something for each color of the rainbow, plus something multicolored. So, let’s get to it:
Are you looking to put an avocado and a banana to good use? I was, and I crossed my fingers as I mixed the two together that this would work. I could have sworn that months ago I had saved the information, either on my computer or in my journal, for a similar hair mask. Unable to find it, I assumed it would be fine as I have definitely seen both of these ingredients used in other hair masks before.
This is as simple as combining a banana and an avocado together in a bowl and mashing. I cut both into smaller pieces before I began mashing. It wasn’t difficult, but next time I think I’ll use my Magic Bullet.
Before I began, I took a shower and washed my hair. I used a towel to squeeze excess water out but it was still quite damp. Immediately before applying the hair mask, I used a comb to get any tangles out, and I draped a towel over my shoulders/around my neck, then using my fingers, I combed the mixture through my hair.
The last time I used a conditioning hair mask I left it on for 20 minutes, so I did the same with this. After 20 very relaxing minutes, after all, there’s not much you can do with banana and avocado in your hair, I rinsed my hair in the shower and dried as usual.
Success! My hair is super soft, and it smells amazing!
