a month before I was in Pakistan, I was strolling around makeup aisles in a
beauty supply store and I came across Luscious Cosmetics aisle and I picked one
blush from their collection of powder blushes.
Caught up in so many ideas to get healthy, shiny hair
this winter but don’t know from where to start???? Then look no further because
I am here to rescue. Just follow these simple steps every day and see the difference
in no time.
Eating healthy means healthy hair. Food enriched with vitamins,
protein and omega-3 fatty acids are the keys to healthy, shiny and stronger hair.
Consumption of sea food once a week, a handful of mixed nuts and green
vegetables can [provide all the essential nutrients for your hair. Like vitamin
E is different nuts helps to protect hair cells from DNA damage. Omega-3 fatty acid
keeps scalp and hair strands hydrated.
We all want clean, flirty and fabulous hair everyday but
washing hair everyday can strip natural oil, leaving hair dry and making strands
brittle. A gap between washes will actually help in distributing hair oil
evenly. For oily hair, it is better to shampoo on alternate days and for dry
and coarse hair after two or three days. Because dry hair needs more care. After washing
a coat of few drops of any, not so oily, oil on hair will keep strands nourish
and will protect from environmental elements.
to heat and over styling
Blow dry, colouring, flat ironing the list can go on; all
these are disaster for your hair strands. Try to eliminate heat styling as much
as possible. Let your hair dry naturally. Do not style your hair very tight. It
can put a lot of stress on hair and can stretch to extent where breakage is
easy. Always protect your hair with hat or scarf when going out in the sun to
protect you hair from UV rays. Use leave-in conditioner when heading to the
pool or beach.
Just like face skin, your scalp also needs good deep
conditioning. This can be home-made or can be purchased from market. Once in a
week a good massage on scalp with any hair oil will stimulate blood flow
towards the scalp to combat any dryness or flakiness. Want to know how to
condition your hair with oils?Read my previous post.
I know, I know that cutting hair cannot make them grow
faster and longer. But dry end are more prone to become split ends. To avoid
hair from splitting, it is nice to cut those brittle ends off. Don’t do it
every week or month if you don’t need to. One another NO NO for hair is that if
you really want to have strong hair then never sleep with loose hair to eliminate
the hair and pillow friction.
I hope you enjoy these tips. Try them and you will find a
significant difference in the health of your hair.
bringing to you straight from runways, new fall trends for 2013. I was keeping
close eye on fashion weeks this September. Found out some
really interesting trends in fashion shows back stage photos and catwalks.
summer brought a fuchsia craze for me. I have been rocking this colour a lot.
It is fresh, appealing and happy colour. I already review Essie: Girls are out in Soft Fuchsia nail colour from their summer collection. So today is Lippy
review is about highly appreciated La Crème Color Drenched Lip Creams by Too
Faced. The colour I chose is, of course, Fuchsia Shock.
Summer is at its peak and always brings so many perks
with it. Means lots of fresh food, visit to beach, hitting the pool and BBQ
But the main problem of make up lovers faces, is the oily
skin and foundation meltdown. The answer to this question is so simple… Aloe
Believe me, all those fancy shmancy primers can fill all
the pores and lines but can’t control oil well. After a couple of hour one must
blot oil or pile up the layers of face powder, which can end up giving a very
I heard so many people are
actually really scared of using oil in their hair. I always wonder why. I
personally feel that all these expensive shampoo and conditioners only work on
the outer surface of your stands and don’t nourish hair from within. Basically,
hair cells are dead when come out of the scalp; it is actually the scalp which
needs a good look after just like the rest of our body skin. And if scalp is
healthy, hair will automatically look healthy and more manageable. Dry and itchy scalp can lead to thinning out
of hair and finally hair loss.
Today I am going to talk about Versense Eau de Toilette Natural Spray from
Versace which is my ultimate favourite perfume for summer. This perfume was
introduced by Versace in 2009 and I got it from Dubai duty free in
2010, I believe.
The perfume is enclosed in a refined crystal bottle. The look of the
bottle is so luxurious. Bottle is made with the linear shape and decorated with
the Medusa logo. The colour of perfume is light green which screams
It has strong notes of citric but at the same time floral notes can easily
be distinguished. It is very light and springy/summery perfume.
Versense fragrance notes are bergamot, green mandarin, fig, sea lily, cardamom,
jasmine, cedar, sandal wood, olive wood and musk.
It is perfect fusion of freshness and sensuality. It gives me a very
happy sensation and evokes vital energy. For all of you who are looking
for not so sweet perfume, this is the ultimate. I personally don't like very
sweet fragrances just like used to wear in my teenage, so that's why I always
come back to this perfume in summer. I will highly recommend it.
I hope you enjoy this perfume. Feel free to leave your comment.
