Cheap beauty ritual

Hello there curlies!
I would like to share with you my beauty ritual.
Recently I started to use castor oil on my face.
I use castor oil with coconut oil to pre-poo my hair. I have had great results so I started to add it in my deep conditioner mixes. I also mix some for my hot oil treatments. I add it to my homemade liquid black soap as well.
Here's a little bit about this oil-
Not only is it a laxative but it's also anti - fungal. It thickens eyebrows and eyelashes. It's like glycerin, it attracts moisture to the hair. It helps with hair loss. Its easily absorbed in the skin. Cures acne and helps skin look youthful (this is the part that I love!)
This oil keeps my hair soft and my skin smooth.
Here's how I use it:
I have a mixture of castor oil and almond oil.  Find the ratio that works for your skin type. I apply some to my face and rub it in a clockwise motion. I massage thoroughly. I then put a hot facecloth over my face because this opens up the pores. The first week or so I did experience some breakouts, but it cleared. This is because the skin is getting used to this new method of cleansing. I also use it to remove make up. The mascara just glides off - no water at all!
 Can you notice the difference in this pic? I have added a few drops of ylang ylang essential oil to my castor oil, because I don't like the smell of it. 
I re- used a hand wash bottle to store my castor oil mix, this makes it so much easier to dispense.

I only started using castor oil a few months ago, and now I'm one of those naturals who can rave about it too! I highly recommend it for your hair and your skin, trust me you won't be disappointed.

Dove Intensive Repair

Hey there curlies!
I keep my hair happy by deep conditioning every time I wash it.
I have been using the Dove Intensive Repair conditioner and the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle deep treatment. Deep conditioning is important for our type of hair because it is naturally dry. Failure to regularly deep condition maybe the cause of hair breakage.
I really enjoy using the Dove Intensive Repair. It's a daily treatment conditioner that claims to give instant deep nourishment. It has a refreshing clean fragrance that lingers on my hair for up to three days. It comes in a convenient upside down tube making it easy to dispense. The color is milky white with a thick consistency. My hair feels transformed with every use. It leaves my hair soft and it's also excellent for color treated hair. I wear my hair out most of the time, so my hair is always in need of some intense moisture repair as possible. It leaves my hair soft, tangle free and with a healthy boost.
Dove Intensive Repair daily treatment conditioner is everything a quality conditioner ought to be. It's a conditioner with treatment inside, so it can be used daily. I like that this product DOES what it says it does!
 I would recommend this product for curlies who have dry, damaged or brittle hair. I will definitely repurchase this product again.

Kindly note that I'm not promoting any products here. Results may differ depending on your hair type.
Until next time,
Stay Natural - Stay Magical
