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!

DIY Beetroot & Sea Salt Scrub for Pigmented Lips

Most of the people in India suffer from pigmentation around their mouth and lip area; especially, pigmented lips. I have lightly pigmented lips as well since as long as I can remember. When I was a kid, everybody in my family used to say that applying lipsticks can cause lip pigmentation. But that is not the cause in my case at least. Because now I actually apply lipsticks on almost a daily basis and my pigmentation hasn’t worsened. It’s the same as it was 5 years ago when I was 18. Obviously, I don’t like it. I’m one hundred percent sure you don’t like pigmented lips as well! So I’ve made a DIY Beetroot & Sea Salt Scrub for Pigmented Lips that will get rid of all the dead skin cells on your lips while mosturising it & fighting the pigmentation as well. It worked for me and I’m sure it’ll work for you as well!

We often associate the smell of roses with love, romance, feminity and summer gardens! They have been adored for centuries by personalities such as Cleopatra (69 BC – 30 BC) & Josephine de Beauharnais (wife of Napoleon I)(1736 – 1814). Roses are cultivated around the world for their high value in perfumery. But, did you know that roses have way more to offer than just their strong floral fragrance? They can help us in several ways apart from being the perfect stress busters! The 2 main products obtained from them are Rose Water & Rose Essential Oil. Both of these products have their own individual purposes and qualities.
