DIY HAIR COLOURING

Middle Head Peninsula, Mosman 009

I have been using Garnier Herba Shine for some time now and find it so suitable for me. Unlike other hair dye kits, Garnier Herba Shine cream tube does not break when its content is being transferred into the solution bottle.

The colouring cream is viscous enough such that it doesn’t drip while colouring. Best of all, it contains no ammonia that is known to cause allergic reactions, respiratory disorders and even cancer. The colouring cream contains bamboo extract that is believed to strengthen the hair.

The hair colour lasts two months before the grey strands peep out again. I notice that colouring my hair using Garnier Herba Shine leaves a sheen on my crown of glory. Using the kit is easy and straightforward and I’m happy with the process and result.

Sold in supermarkets and beauty products outlets, Garnier is priced at $14.95.

HAND CREAM THAT PAMPERS YOUR SKIN

I picked up this subtle fragrant hand cream from Priceline today and I think it’s value for money. Botanical Creations offer a variety of unique and exotic fragrant hand cream. Some examples are rose and sandalwood, grapefruit, lemon and jasmine and vanilla. After much contemplation, I finally decided on the jasmine and vanilla because of its subtle and refreshing scent of the East. The scent lasts as long as you have it rubbed on your hands and it’s something that I won’t get tired of.

I apply the soothing cream after doing the dishes and before bed. It gives my skin that soft silky feel, leaving it with a subtle exotic fragrance of sensuous jasmine that lingers.

Best of all, it is not a rip in the pocket. Costing just below AU$3, the hand cream is indeed a great bargain for such a good quality product.

COCONUT MILK BENEFITS FOR THE HAIR

Organix Shampoo

As we all know coconut milk contains proteins, which strengthens and moisturises the hair and help to minimise breakage. It also has properties which protect hair and scalp from UV rays. I have been looking for a coconut milk-based shampoo to replace the former Palmer’s Coconut Milk Shampoo since I moved to another city. My hair is dry due to constant dyeing and rebonding and needs quality shampoo that gives it continual hydration, so I strongly believe that one containing coconut milk as one of its ingredients will be the answer.

During one of my shopping expeditions, I came across Organix Coconut Milk Shampoo in the supermarket and decided to give it a try. I have been using Organix Coconut Milk Shampoo for a month now and it has added noticeable lustre to my dry and dull hair. It costs AU $15.99 in a 13 fluid ounce bottle, a reasonable price for a middle-end shampoo. Organix Coconut Shampoo has organic coconut milk to nourish the hair, whipped egg whites to strengthen and coconut oils for hydration. It is also sulfate free meaning it does not contain any Sodium Laurel Sulfate which is a chemical that induces the creation of lather which is believed to cause cancer. Despite this, the shampoo still produces sufficient lather from a small amount of shampoo squirted from the bottle.

The shampoo has a subtle fragrance of coconut milk and leaves the hair feeling soft and looking silky. It is worth its price and I’m satisfied with the results.

You can also try this home remedy for promoting hair growth and improving silkiness. Pour coconut milk into a small plastic jug with a spout that eases the pouring of the fluid onto the scalp. Massage coconut milk to the scalp well so that the coconut milk reaches the roots of your hair. For a soothing effect, chill the can of coconut milk in the fridge before the treatment. You will see positive results after 2 to 3 treatments.
