Bad Hair Days?

Hi Ladies,

Bad hair days can ruin the best of moments. But why do they occur?

The hair shaft or the outer covering of the hair is made up of lots of tightly packed overlapping scales, much like the way shown in the shampoo ads. Our scalp produces oil called sebum which coats the hair and helps keep these scales aligned as well as protect our hair.

When this oil balance is disturbed, the scales on the hair open and the hair swell, causing frizzy, brittle hair.

This imbalance can occur due to use of shampoos or caused by improper diet or stress. This is also a cause of hair breakage and hair loss.

Apple Cider Vinegar helps restore the natural acidity of the hair in the most natural way.

Apple cider vinegar is also anti-inflammatory, which can counteract the skin inflammation that typically occurs with dandruff and a dry, flaky scalp.

Apples are loaded with potassium, calcium and pectin, and fermentation adds even more beneficial enzymes. Unfiltered apple cider vinegar is packed with all of these nutrients, so you can prefer it over filtered apple cider vinegar.

The Rinse:badhair2

1 tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar in about 1 cup of water.

After shampoo, rinse your hair with this mix.

Let it sit for 1-2 minutes,

Rinse with water.

Don’t worry, as your hair dry, the vinegar odor goes away too, leaving you with shiny, clean hair.

Tip:

Just leave a plastic mug/cup with the bottle of Apple Cider Vinegar in the washroom. Wash your hair first, followed by the Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse. Let it sit in the hair for the rest of the bath. Rinse your hair as part of the shower itself.

Let me know what natural things you use to prevent bad hair days.

Take half spoon Olive Oil, half spoon honey and two spoons of brown sugar. Add a few drops of lemon as well, if you feel like it.

Mix all of it together. Lightly scrub your face with it in circular motion.

Leave for a few minutes and then wash off.

Stay Natural. Stay Beautiful.

 

Detox your skin

Skin comes in contact with pollutants on daily basis. On top of the dirt and bacteria it touches, skin also absorbs any chemicals in the soaps you use to wash yourself.

One look at the ingredients and you know which side is laden with chemicals. On top of these are the added artificial colors and fragrances to the commercial soaps.

Handmade cold process soaps not only cleanse the skin but also give the benefit of pure essential oils and moisturizing properties of butters added to them.

Choose Natural, Choose Pure, Choose Better.

Winter Skin

SYSkinWinter’s dry air takes a toll on our skin and strips it of all its moisture. Here are a few tips to rejuvenate the skin.

  1. Caffeine is a diuretic and makes our body rid itself of water. During winters, this causes the skin to dry out as our body does not have enough water to hydrate it. More so, the winter cold means we are drinking less water than normal which adds to the effect and leads us to the second tip 🙂
  2. Drink as much water as possible. In fact liquid in any form like a bowl of hot soup, a cup of milk, some juice in the morning, anything which adds up to our daily quota of liquids.
  3. Commercial soaps contain sulfates which strip our skin of the natural oil it produces to keep the skin moist and soft. While our skin may feel squeaky clean initially, it is actually too dry for this weather. Sometimes, our skin overcompensates by producing too much oil and we exaggerate the problem by repeating the cycle of washing with harsh, chemical laden cleansers. Use soft and mild soaps which are high on moisturizing oils and dont contain any chemicals.
  4. Oils like coconut, sesame etc are severely under-rated. Many times we consider applying oil as too old fashioned for our smart selves and instead resort to “upmarket” products. However, these oils are truly wonderful and make our skin moist from within. Ayurveda lists so many benefits of these oils. Coconut Oil and Castor Oil are readily absorbed by the skin and do not give the sticky feeling we sometimes associate with oils.

Try these tips and let me know any other natural ways you use to keep your skin moist and supple.

Cedarwood & Coffee Soap

Not many of us are aware of either Cedarwood Essential Oil or its benefits to us. However, it has a bunch of benefits when added to soaps:

  1. It cleans out toxins.
  2. It reduces skin irritation.
  3. It helps reduce dry or flaky scalp.
  4. It has antiseptic properties.
  5. It is a natural deodorizer.

Coffee not only wakens you up in the morning but even freshens up your skin. Some benefits of coffee are:

  1. It helps fight acne.
  2. It absorbs odors.
  3. The mild aroma of coffee helps elevate your mood.
