As I said before I'd like more interaction from the readers so I've put up a poll, This poll can only be answered on a laptop/ computer or tablet, and some smart phones. This poll is about essential oils.


As you can see in the screenshot above the poll is on the right side bar of the page. Looking forward to many votes. May the battle of the essential oils begin.

Hairdration

It's that time of the year where half, the world is going through winter and the half is going through summer. These are the harshest weathers for your hair. During these two seasons our hair experiences a lot of dehydration, and we need to keep the fro moisturised. Here are a few things you could do to keep your hair moisturised.

  1. Daily Hair Spritz
  2. Essential Oils
  3. Leave-in Conditioners
  4. Avoid products that usually leave your hair feeling dry
  5. Organic is the way 
During this period you should use the products mentioned above more than you usually do, your normal amount of moisture will be insufficient.

Daily Hair Spritz:


If you don't already have one then you can use my RECIPE or create your own daily hair spritz.
Daily hair spritz is used in the morning before to style your hair, or at night before bed, depending on the user and time availability. But during such periods I advice that you spray your hair in the morning and at night before bed. So your hair can seal in the moisture during the day and at night.

Essential Oils:


Even if it's not wash day or you're not doing any kind of treatment, you need to seal in the moisture. In times like this your hair easily gets dehydrated and needs all the moisture it can get. Feed your scalp generous amounts of essential oils, be it coconut oil, jojoba oil, almond oil or even olive oil it's up to you. Hot oil treatments are the best.

Leave-in Conditioners:


This is a product that you should already be using everyday. If not, then at least 3 times a week. But I recommend that during such harsh weathers that it be used daily, to keep you hair hydrated.







Avoid Product that dry your hair:

STAY AWAY!!!!! from products that make your hair feel dry after using it, such as sulfate-shampoos. We've all got different hair textures and just because a product works for a fellow naturalista sometimes it won't work on you. Find products that work with your hair, just don't become a product junkie. 

Organic is the way:

Always remember that organic products made by you can be better than store bought products, as you are 100% sure that it is all natural. You can make your own leave-in's or deep conditioners, there are plenty of recipes on the internet why not put your creative side to work. You'd be surprised with what you can do.
