Do yourself a favour clean your make up brushes

Hello again!


I recently  shared a video on my Facebook page about a lady that got some  serious face infections that could of lead to brain damage. Why? She never cleaned her make up brushes. Check out the video here. It's a must see especially if you anything like me, a little on the lazy side...

 Not long ago I  had a mild break out of rash on my face and fortunately it didn't take me long to find out the root cause of it. You guessed right!




SO WHAT'S THE BIG DEAL?
Not washing your make up brushes regularly  can lead to skin break- outs. Bacteria and other bad stuff accumalate on brushes which leads to pimples and serious infections.

Here's how I clean my brushes:
Pour some warm water in a bowl.
Add shampoo or an anti - bacterial hand wash and work up a lather.


Dip the brushes in and swirl them around in the bowl or on your palms.
Add more shampoo if needed.
Try to keep your bristles in a downward position.
I usually leave them to soak for a few minutes.


I rinse in warm water then cold afterwards
then add conditioner in a bowl with a little water.
Put all of them in and give them a good rub down.
I rinse thoroughly and squeeze out the excess water gently.


Lastly I  lay them out to dry on a towel. I've made it a ritual to wash my brushes on days that I wash my hair.      
 

So- just do yourself a favour and wash your make up brushes!

Your brushes will be smelling great and you'll have nice soft bristles too.
And that's all!



What's your way of cleaning your make up brushes?

Until next time - Keep the Magic

Hi ya'll!

 Thanks to Maxine Arnold- much love to this natural hair queen- find out all about her journey and regimen here. She introduced us to the banana Purity. I hate putting food on my hair but Purity was just the perfect solution! I named it 'my bomb combo' cos thats exactly what it is. It's filled with moisturizing goodness!

I did some research and here's what I found:
Bananas are rich in vitamins, potassium and calcium.
Great for hair growth
Helps with hair fall Has healing properties
Gives shine and moisturises and the list goes on....

It's everything for dry, course and brittle hair. My hair feels stronger and is shinier everytime- it's all kinds of awesomeness...

Diy African Black Soap ( sulphate free ) shampoo*

Hey there curlies!

Don't you just love a product that is budget friendly, has multi usage benefits... Aaand... works ridiculously well too?
African Black soap happens to be one of those- I've been using this soap for about a year. My hair never feels stripped or crunchy but clean and moisturised(?)  No shampoo has ever left my hair moisturised before.
African black soap has some healing properties and is antifungal. Its known to help with scalp and skin conditions such as eczema, dandruff, psoriasis and other irritations you may have going on up there. As you know- getting rid  of scalp issues helps promote a healthy environment for your hair to grow.


I have a soft spot for this soap because it's all natural I can never go wrong with that. My staple is ABS; it's cheaper and more effective than experimenting with other shampoos.  Anyways let's get on with it- 
Here's what I used:)

I love Apple cidar vinegar...Here's why!

Howzit everyone!

I read an article on how acv cures acne and is great as a cleaning agent when mixed with baking soda. Hmm and that's  not even half of it...there are many benefits to apple cidar vinegar.

I use apple cidar vinegar for salads and for my tin fish curries.
I use to use acv as a detox drink every day   with lemon, cinnamon and honey in it - helped flatten my tummy. I'm  not sure why I stopped.
Acv Detox Drink
4 tablespoons Honey

squirts of the juice. If I have fresh mint I add a few in. Cucumber is great too. I also add acv to grapefruit juice it's soo delicious-

I use apple cidar vinegar as a hair rinse and in my clay masks, as well  as a toner. After I co-wash I usually do an apple cider vinegar rinse. I also  add a few drops of essential oil to it. Acv restores the hair's ph b…
