After being asked many times if I have ever tried the “No Poo Method” I decided I may as well give this a shot and see what the hype is over this natural alternative to cleaning hair. I also decided to do it because of the benefits I had researched such as; eliminating chemicals from my routine ,and its much cheaper. Apple cider vinegar has a wonderful effect on restoring the ph balance of your hair and stripping it clean of toxins also intrigued me so I set out to a 7 day experiment!

Day 1:Apple cider vinegar no poo method, no poo method, hair experiment, apple cider vinegar for hair, hair detox, hair treatment

So typically I wash my hair every other day to every 2 days because I have an oily scalp. Today is day 1 and I washed my hair using my vinegar water mixture. 75% water to 25% vinegar.

Results: I am quite pleased so far. My hair seems very similar to how it is when it is shampood but actually looks a little shiner! So far I am quite pleased with it and there is no icky vinegar smell to my hair at all like I feared there might be. ūüôā

Day 2: I DO SMELL LIKE VINEGAR!

By Day 3 I stopped blogging about this experiment due to my lack of enthusiasm for it due to the horrible smell. As you can see my hair looks pretty good and actually LIGHTER. My over all thoughts are on video here:

The Truth On Mascara

Did you know that most of the mascaras on the market contain ingredients that can actually do harm to your lashes?

After a while you may start to notice your lashes become brittle and dry and before you know it….they fall out! This is a good way for manufactures to get consumers to come back for more of their magic eyelash goop!¬†

 I will teach your how to get real results with YOUR lashes without having to pay for false promises that come in a plastic tube of black goop!

First And Foremost you need to have a healthy diet!

 Key Nutrients For Healthier & Longer Lashes! 

VITAMIN H: Vitamin H is actually a B vitamin and B vitamins are known for having good effects on the hair and lashes. B vitamins help the body metabolize fats and proteins and in result you get faster hair growth! You can buy Supplements at health food stores. Some ways to get this nutrient through your food is by eating things like eggs, beans, and nuts and seeds!

Antioxidants: Antioxidant rich foods like blueberries and believe it or not chocolate are fantastic at protecting your lashes and keeping them strong so eat foods rich in color!

Omega 3 Fatty acids: I cant stress how important it is to have healthy fats in your diet! Healthy fats come from things like fish, avocados, nuts and seeds. These fats are good to maintain your vibrant beauty and overall general health. Omega 3’s help your body absorb nutrients and vitamins to your blood stream.

Only when you are truly healthy from the inside it will exude on the outside.

 How To Condition Your Lashes As Part Of Your Daily Beauty Regime

Olive oil is my favorite natural treatment for lashes. Apply a drop to your finger and apply the oil to your lashes every night before bed.

~Another great oil is vitamin E oil

~A clever choice is Pomegranate oil as it is rich in antioxidants which will stimulate growth

Mascara Your Friend Or Your Enemy?

As I said at the start of this post most mascaras are causing harm to your lashes due to harmful preservatives and chemicals. Why would you want to settle for only temporary results anyways?

I highly suggest reducing the amount of mascara you apply and also reduce how often you apply it. Give your lashes a chance to recover once in a while at the very least.

The Bright Side 

There are healthy alternatives to mascaras one of my favorites is by 100% pure and I have the color blackberry. I have a full review on this mascara on my blog as well. Be sure to check that out!

 Mascaras rich in plant extracts, natural pigments, and  un-harmful  preservatives are a wiser choice. Natural Mascaras are often equally effective as the generic ones though they are harder to find.

I hope you found these tips helpful!

The Natural Products I Use To Get Fresh & Ready For The Day!

Lets Start With Tooth Care

Step 1: I like to brush my teeth using an electric tooth brush by Oral B. I used To be one of those people who mock electric tooth brush users. I must admit now.. my teeth have never been easy to clean due to my tight spaces and overlaps so I feel electric really gives them a nice polish and they never feel like there was any spots missed since using the electric.

My tooth paste is SELF MADE. might sound weird and scary but why should a tooth paste made in a factory be safer than one you make from home? Plus I love having total control over whats in it. you ever wonder why your tooth paste bottle says “maybe harmful if swallowed?” WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU PUT IT IN YOUR MOUTH THEN?? Most toothpastes are loaded with harmful synthetic ineffective ingredients that belong in a chemical lab not in your mouth! My tooth paste is made out of baking soda, coconut oil, pure essential oils of peppermint and¬†cinnamon. super safe and EFFECTIVE ingredients. For my exact tooth paste recipe let me know if you would like a video or post about it .:)

Step 2: EXTRA CLEAN. Since my teeth are so crooked I have to take a little bit of extra time to clean a few with a special tool.

I also love scraping my tung, it keeps your breath fresh as most of the bacteria in your mouth sit on your tung. 

Step 3: FLOSS & Rinse! 

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Dr Tungs Smart Floss! Its an all natural floss with a natural wax coating. its amazing it takes out so much plaque.  Its also very flexible so its easy to use. I floss twice a day, I feel this is the most important step of all! Along with flossing I like To massage my gums with Healthy Gum Drops by living libations. the blend is a collaboration of essential oils that help heal and repair your gum tissue!

Now for extra minty freshness I like to add a few drops of peppermint essential oil to some water and the swish it in my mouth for 30 seconds. ūüôā

 

Now For Me I like To Refresh Before My Workout as well, especially if I am going Outside. Here is How I do it! 

Step 1: Deo! super important! my favorite all natural variety is Primavera’s Ginger lime roll on alcohol based one!¬†

Step 2: I love my energizing salbei body splash by weeleda but for even more ZING I added Lemongrass oil to it!

Step 3: Who doesn’t love a fresh face? Just a spritz of rose water will cleanse and tone your skin in 2 seconds! I am currently using the one by Safeas which I am LOVING

SHOWER TIME!!!

Step 1: Shampoo & Condition. I generally use Lavera’s basis sensitive shampoo because its a good price, has a decent ingredients list, and its got a good lather.

For Conditioning I am currently using a Sante coconuty one. I mix up my shampoo and conditioning regime OFTEN! I also shampoo and condition EVERY OTHER DAY.

For pits and privates I like Weeleda’s¬†pomegranate body wash. its very gentle and soft on the skin!

step 2. I like to cleanse my face while in the shower. I am oddly using a hair care product by Intelligent Nutrients, it is the leave in hair conditioner to be exact and it works like a dream on the skin. its like a gel and I have been using it for a month on my face. :p

 

AFTER SHOWER

Step 1: STRETCH MARK PREVENTION: I am preggo so I have been trying to prevent stretch marks. I really like weeleda’s sebuckthorn lotion for the day. I prefer a light protection for the day and deeper at night.¬†

step 2: Nothing better than spritzing on your own self made perfume that smells like springy magnolia blossoms!
