Best Oil for Hair Growth & Prevent Hair Fall

Disclaimer: While this oil is very effective and showed results, it might not be the case for everyone. But there is no harm in giving it a try.

This is my first port related to “Hair Care” and I thought it to be the best time to share with you all some of my favorite oils that I have used for myself as well as kids. Well, let’s include hubby dear too. I have years and years of relationship with these oils, I use them for different purposes but today is all about hair care so let’s get started. Women’s most common issue is hair fall specially after having kids and if you live in U.A.E, you’d know what I’m talking about. The water here is the main cause for hair fall. There may be other reasons for hair fall like stress, too much dandruff or inadequate attention towards hair ,we need to work on this as soon as possible or we will end up being bald. If not cured, it will just worsen. This is the reason people complain of less volume in hair. It’s a process, excessive hair fall leads to less hair! So I tried many oils but to be honest I become impatient after a month when I do not see obvious improvement. That’s the reason I keep experimenting and trying different oils.

Just so you know, I do not use any hair products such as hair spray, I do not use any kind of serums for ironing or curling (because I do not do them)The only products that I ever applied on my hair are shampoo, conditioner and hair oils. I have naturally thick, silky and soft hair but everything was ruined after I had baby. I had too much of hair fall and I didn’t attend to it immediately thinking it will be “fine” on its own. Don’t make this mistake.

So, finally I’m able to create my very own mixtures of oils that suited my hair because just after using it for one month only, I can see a difference. I’m not saying huge difference, but there is definitely one. I applied this daily on the first week, showered daily but applied shampoo only thrice a week but if I need to shampoo in between I use baby shampoo(by the way our family use baby shampoo hoping it has less chemicals). From the 2nd week on wards, I apply it on alternate days.

What you need:

  • Almond Oil- 80ml OR 1/3 cup (available at LULU)
  • Coconut Oil- 80ml OR 1/3 cup (Lulu & Carrefour)
  • Castor Oil- 1 tbsp    (Lulu & Carrefour)
  • Black Seed Oil- 1 tbsp   (Lulu & Carrefour)
  • Empty Bottle- Daiso
  • Measuring cup

The above info on where to buy the oils is for the residents of the UAE

Method:

Mix all 4 oils in one bottle and shake gently.

Note: Take equal portions of Almond and Coconut oil OR if you prefer, you can take more of coconut oil and lesser almond oil and adjust the rest of the measurement.

Just play around with the measurement according to what you think is your hair’s need. It is totally safe. Sometimes I take more coconut oil as it is my favorite for hair growth. 🙂

Cons:

  • the packaging- I wish the lipstick bullet where the product is in, would have been of good material as Glamgals’ other products which has an awesome packaging.

Check out my earlier Glamgals Product reviews on their nail product and dual lip gloss that won my heart.

My final verdict:

As I have mentioned the Pros and Cons already, I wouldn’t be going to much of those details. I’m sure you might be wondering about the longevity of the lipstick. It is not long-lasting, which is very much okay with me because it doesn’t claim to be one. Not unless you are buying a long-lasting lip product, you shouldn’t expect one to be. Lipsticks always need touch ups that’s the reason I make sure I carry the lipstick shade I am wearing on a particular day, in my purse as I’d be needing it for touch ups sometime later during the day. So here you are getting extra makeup tips from me. 😛 However the Glamgals Creme Matte lipstick did last for hours till I had burger and french fries party 😛 You get so much of the product in the tube that make is so worth every penny and of course the quality which I already have raved about earlier.

DIY – Lips Exfoliatior

Hi Beauties! ❤

Today I’ll be sharing with you a DIY Lips Exfoliator that I’ve been using for quite some time now. 🙂 Due to those unwanted dry skin we end up biting them off which is not a good way to treat your lips. So don’t do that and start exfoliating. Who says you need to go out of your budget to get one, make yours from scratch with everything from your kitchen. 😀

Why do we exfloliate lips?

In easy words, there are times our lips gets flaky, dry and accumulate dry skin on the surface which looks very unpleasant,for that we need to remove that unwanted layer on our lips due to which we exfoliate them.

Easy DIY Lips Exfoliator

What you need :

1.  White Sugar -2 tsp

2. Extra Virgin Oil- 1/2 tspDSC_5108

3. Coconut Oil- 1 tspDSC_5110

4. Honey-1/2 tsp (Optional)– If you aren’t adding honey, then increase quantity of coconut oil to 1.5 tsp

5. Food Color-1 drop (optional and use your desired color)DSC_5112

6. Jars/pots to store your home made Lip Exfoliator.

Method:

Add all of the above in a bowl and mix using spoon for 5 to 8 seconds only not much as you don’t want to dissolve sugar.

Then put them in a cute, nice jar of your choice and refrigerate.DSC_5113

Your Orange Lip exfoliator is ready. ❤

DSC_5127The other one I make is Brown Lip exfoliator. You will need all of the above ingredients except for the food color as it won’t give a nice color when mixed with the brown sugar. Of course, omit the white sugar 😛

This Lips Exfoliator is good to use for two weeks. I have very dry lips ,I guess it’s the weather in Dubai that’s making me struggle with my lips issues, so I exfoliate my lips every other day and this quantity lasts for about 10 days in my case. If you already have nice, soft lips,exfoliating once a week should be enough.

You can always increase the quantity according to preference, but If you are doing this for the first time, i suggest to stick to this quantity so you get an idea about the quantity. 🙂

Tips: 1. Remove lip exfoliator 3 to 5 minutes before use.

2. While mixing, keep track of the consistency you want as I might have a different choice, If you want a dry mixture,increase sugar, if you want a bit runny mixture then increase coconut oil.

Hope you find this post useful. Thanks for reading.

Stay Gorgeous! ♥
