Ryaal Black Mess Review | Mask, Scrub and Cleanser

Black Mess. The name in itself is really catchy and unique! It’s just perfect for something that has Activated charcoal as the hero ingredient. Skincare products with activated charcoal are all the hype in the market this year! Why should they not be?! I, myself, gravitate towards everything with charcoal in it. It just manages to clean out the skin by pulling the gunk out of our pores making skin baby soft and clear. It’s an ideal ingredient to look for in skincare products. Especially, if you have acne-prone skin or if you want a product to Detox skin pores. I was really excited to try this product myself; especially, after looking at the ingredient list. Charcoal​ combined with the healing powers of clay, dead sea mud, aloe vera extract, tea tree and peppermint oils and so on! Read on for the Ryaal Black Mess Review | Mask, Scrub and Cleanser!

Homemade Coconut Milk & Aloe Vera Hair Mask for deep conditioning 

I have naturally wavy/curly hair with a lot of frizz. So, naturally, I was obsessed with getting my hair silky & straight. In my quest to get silky straight hair, I’ve chemically treated my hair 3 times. At that time, my hair was really strong and thick. But after Relaxing my hair for the 3rd time, I noticed that my hair is becoming a little thin! Not drastically thin because I used to take care of my hair a lot. I used to buy the shampoos recommended by my hair stylist, I used to go for regular spas and all. But, no matter how much precaution we take, chemically treating our hair is never a good idea. So, it’s been two & a half years now since I’ve done any chemical treatment on them. I’m growing out my curls now and trying to manage them at any cost. I’m always on my quest to find the perfect products for them. But, more than finding good products for my hair type, I’m more interested in experimenting with my homemade recipes because in terms of results, nothing works for me like my homemade hair masks with ingredients from my kitchen cabinet (almost, always). The Diy hair mask I’m talking about today is my Homemade Coconut Milk & Aloe Vera Hair Mask for deep conditioning dry & frizzy hair!

5 Facial Oils to change your skin game this winter

Facials oils & serums, as opposed to mosturisers or any other skincare products, are far more concentrated and potent.
