HAIR TIP of the DAY – Hair Concoction

I just realized I am not sharing hair tips these days! So, today’s post is on hair and a beneficial DIY hair concoction.

We all know hair oil and massaging is very important for hair growth and to enhance blood circulation. However, if you are facing issues like hair fall, scalp infections, dandruff etc. normal hair oil may not help you to get rid of these issues. Currently I am obsessed with essential oils. Essential oils are not just good for skin but for your hair as well. The idea is same, you need a base oil i.e. coconut, almond, olive, jojoba oil or argon oil and one or two essential oils based on the hair concerns you are facing.

Makeup removers are nothing but a solution of water and oil that’s why all makeup removers suggest you to shake the bottle before using it. Oil and water helps in loosening the makeup particles and helps in removing all waterproof make up easily. The oil glides on your skin surface and removes the makeup particles.

Note – Remember while cleaning your eyes, put the cotton pad dipped in makeup remover over your eyes for few seconds. Pat the cotton pad lightly on eyes and then swipe to remove makeup. Putting or dabbing the cotton pad for few seconds will help to break the makeup particles results into easy makeup removal process. This step applied to all makeup removers.

In today’s tutorial you just need 3 ingredients to make this wonderful yet cheap DIY makeup remover. For the oil base I am using olive oil as its great for skin and have healing properties. People use baby oils in their makeup removers but I am not a fond of baby oils in makeup removers as they are made of vegetable oil and it’s lightly fragrant which is not good for your eyes in my belief. Olive oils are safe and are organic.

Additionally I have added Tea-Tree essential oil in these DIY products to make it more beneficial. We all know that Tea-Tree when applied on skin is amazing over infections and acnes. It’s great to reduce those acne blemishes and dark spots. It’s an effective anti-viral and anti-fungal home remedy and has several other benefits. I simply believe in investing over these great essential oils to make my DIY products more beneficial as well as valuable.

Another product which you need to make these DIY products is Rubbing Alcohol (commonly known as surgical spirit in India). It will act as a solvent and it evaporates later (you need to put it in refrigerator to remove alcohol from the product) once you are done making this product.

I am making a compact powder using Baby powder. I love baby powder as a setting powder. It’s great for your skin and absorbs the excess oil. It’s also said baby powders are great for oily and acne prone skin.

Nevertheless, let’s not waste any time and let’s start making these wonderful DIY products i.e. Bronzer and Compact Powder. All you need is – Continue reading DIY Bronzer and Compact Powder
