No More Bad Hair Days

Unfortunately, we all have bad hair days because it’s neither easy nor recommended to wash hair every day. But why compromise on looks when we can make the hair look good even bad hair days! Yes, there are dry shampoos available that can be used when our hair go sticky.

Dry shampoo is a shampoo in powder form, used without the addition of water.

Aah! Who’s gonna spend so much money on these dry shampoos.

How about if you could make one on your own? That would be WOW, isn’t it?

Well, you wished and we have it for you:

Just mix arrowroot powder and cocoa powder in equal amounts and whoa… your self-made dry shampoo is there!

How to Use:

1. Divide hair into sections and apply the dry shampoo on the roots. Make sure to apply it to all of the roots without depositing too much powder. It should appear translucent on the strands.

2. For added volume, flip the hair upside down and use fingers to blend the powder.

3. Shake out your roots so that the dry shampoo moves towards the ends

4. Flip your hair back and gently comb the hair with a hairbrush (don’t use normal comb as that might flatten the hair).

5. Finish it off by lightly running the fingers through the strands one last time and then just leave it.

6. Try not to keep touching the hair again n again after this as the less you touch it, the better it looks!

Use this and say goodbye to bad hair days!

Hair that You'd Love Caressing

Hair care is very important in today’s time when we have to roam around in so much dust, pollution, harmful sunlight throughout the day. We tend to care about our skin but most of us don’t give much attention to our hair which makes them rough, dull and thin with time. Some of us don’t have enough knowledge about hair care and we think that shampooing and oiling are enough, but that is not it!!! There’s much more that we must do to take complete care of our locks. So today I’m discussing a hair care regimen. 
  •  Never wash hair without pre-oiling them. Oil need not be left overnight rather you can oil them an hour before washing. Try to apply lukewarm oil on the scalp and you will notice the difference on your own. 
  • Shampoo should not be applied directly to the scalp as it contains strong chemicals. So to neutralize the effect of those chemicals, take palm-full amount of water in a container and mix the same amount of shampoo that you would use otherwise to wash hair and then apply it to the hair and wash as usual. Then, to towel-dried hair (50% dry hair), apply Roots Morocvita Oil along the lengths of hair. It is natural and organic product, enriched with Vitamin E, Vitamin A and essential fatty acids and moreover it is non greasy and is instantly absorbed by hair. This also protects hair from harmful UV rays and heat treatments. This oil is quite an expensive one but it is all worth the price.
  •          Never use blow dryers for drying hair, always let them air dry and never comb your hair till they are wet as it makes them weak and leads to hair breakage.

  •  Once a week, apply curd to the hair half an hour prior to head bath. Curd is a natural and best conditioner for our hair and contains everything that our locks need.

So that was a very simple hair care regimen with nothing fancy and easy to follow which helps keep hair healthy, thick and gorgeous! 

Stay tuned to Your Pink Book as I'm coming up with really interesting, exciting, and useful things which all the lasses would want to know.

Miraculous Regimen for Radiant Skin

Everyone craves for beautiful and flawless skin but either they are short of time or lack knowledge about what may work well. The cosmetics which make one look alluring are generally out of budget or may have some side effects. So today I’m going to share the regimen that one may opt to get that desired admiring skin naturally in a pocket friendly way. Let’s get the ball rolling!

  1. After waking up, give a good splash of plain cold water on face and don't use any face wash or soap.
  1. While bathing, use Richfeel Calendula Soap for face, it helps in reducing any kind of marks or scars on skin, treats acne and enhances the complexion.
  2. Use Dove Beauty Bathing bar for rest of body, as it leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth because it contains ¼ moisturizing cream.
  3. Post bath, apply coconut oil all over the body except face and neck and massage it well. Pouring water after massage isn’t mandatory as the coconut oil gets absorbed in the body very fast.
  4. Then spray some rose water over the face and let it dry.
  5. Now apply Jovees Fairness Lotion (for all skin types) over the face and neck. This will moisturize the face well, makes one look fairer and protect from harmful UV rays as it contains SPF-15. But if one has to stay in sun for long then use an additional sunscreen with more SPF. Lotus Herbals Safe Sun 3-in-1 matte look daily sunblock SPF-40 is a great choice for sun protection. If your skin is very oily then use Lacto Calamine Lotion instead of Jovees lotion.
  6. At night, before going to bed, wash the face again with the Richfeel Calendula Soap. After that, dry skinned people should apply 2-3 drops of almond oil all over the face and massage well and those with oily skin should spray some rose water on the face and apply some Aloe Vera Gel.

So that’s the daily skincare regimen that one needs to follow to get that problem free skin.

In addition to the above steps, one should not forget to do the following:  

  1. Scrub thou face once or twice a week with any scrub of thy choice to get rid of black heads, white heads and the dead skin cells. Choose a scrub which is not harsh on delicate face skin.
  2. Post scrubbing, spray some rose water over the face and let it dry.
  3. Moisturizing is very important step after scrubbing which must not be skipped. If you have dry skin, apply 3-4 drops of almond oil over the face and if you have oily skin, apply Aloe Vera Gel. Leave it as it is throughout the night. Try staying indoors after this and wash the face if you have to go outdoors.
  4. Apply any face pack over the face and neck every week to keep the pores tight and the skin firm.

So, that was the simple, easy and pocket friendly regimen which, if followed regularly and religiously, will solve many of your skin problems and help in enhancing thy beauty. In my next post, I will be discussing the hair care regime for the gorgeous and healthy locks. Stay Tuned!
