Manage Your Hair!

I have always had a problem with my hair. I was never satisfied with its condition.

My mum used to make me cut my hair all the time when I was in primary school that I eventually lost my natural curls. When I stepped into secondary school, I decided to keep my hair long. Yes, my curls came back but they were frizzy and I even had split ends when I was in sec 4!

Weirdly, I actually enjoyed looking at my split ends... I thought it was really fascinating that my hair seemed to have a behaviour of its own. But of course, that was a sign of unhealthy hair.

As I grew older and better managed my hair, the split ends were gone but not the frizziness or dryness :(  Thank god I put on the tudung ...  I spend so much money whenever I go to the salon for some hair treatments. At least, since I do not have to show off my hair so much, I could also cut down on the salon visits. 

But that mindset changed when I got married. Husby loved the hair whenever it is fresh from the salon. I tried ways and means to ensure that the locks stay shiny and bouncy. After trying out many hair products, I settled on the range from Essential. That made the hair much tamer and manageable ... and there were even many occasions where I just loved to flip flip my hair and feel it bounce off the shoulder. Haha!

I chose the Orange range that basically focuses on taming and softening dry or frizzy hair. After the shampoo (1) and conditioner (2) , I'll use the treamement cream(3) that is supposed to combat all those dryness. Once a week, I 'll replace (3) with (4) - a hair mask that contains honey and shea butter for that extra softness and bounce. (5) is the leave-on conditioner that comes last.
So far , so good. I have been a loyal user for a couple of years now although sometimes, I wish , my hair is just a little bit more bouncy and smooth.

Until recently, I made an amazing discovery (oh well, at least to me, it was amazing!).

                                                          This is what I am talking about.....

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse® Multi-Usage Dry Oil

The NUXE Amazing Dry Oil has a super-activated formula that combines 30% of precious plant oils and vitamin E to nourish, repair and soften face, body and hair in a single gesture.

What is so special about this cute little bottle of dry oil? Well, it contains a unique cocktail of 6 precious plant oils (borage, St Johnswort, sweet almond, camellia, hazelnut, macadamia) and infused with Vitamin E (for the best in reparative moisture) that even works with stretch marks! I do not have any at the moment (hopefully, never!) but at least , there is one here that I can turn to :P

I use this when the hair is partially dried (naturally , not with hairdryer). Just put a small amount on your palm and apply to your hair. It is apparently safe for the scalp as well but I was a little cautious and avoided the scalp. When I first tried it, I did not have much expectations as you know how it is with products that promise you beyond their means.

I was pleasantly surprised though! The hair remains soft and silky and even has a light fragrance to it. Nothing to strong to take - I even went to my husby and insisted that he smelled my hair. LOL. I wash my hair on alternate days and it is really good to know that the effects last throughout.

You can also use this for your face and body. It will leave your face and body soft and velvety and your hair will become supple, glossy and full of volume. I tried it on my knees because the skin there is slightly drier and it turned smooth within minutes. I like it!

This is definitely for keeps :) Do try it out if you have issue with dry , limp hair or simply dry skin!
