Over the years, I've had various different hair types. I dyed my hair shades of red for 7 years, and then used natural things to lighten my hair (lemons, food grade hydrogen peroxide, tons of sun) for about 7 years. At one point a few years ago, my roots kept seeming so much darker than I remember them being, and I finally decided to make the plunge and get the rest of my hair matched to my roots. I also chopped most of it off within the same couple of weeks of doing so. The whole experience was a major energy and identity shift for me, and was part of the beginnings of my saturn return experience, so the timing was all meant to be.
Looking for the volume that you get from mid-summer sun and pond hair? Well, I have been... It's that flat static wintery hair that I don't so much enjoy, but it motivates me to look for answers in the hair department... Lately I've been playing around with 2 options - a homemade hair gel, and a homemade sea salt spray. Look for a post coming soon on the salt hair spray!
Yesterday I treated myself to such a lovely and nourishing face mask! As a busy working (from home) mom, I don't have a lot of time for masks and well let's face it - self care of mostly any kind, so these things are usually pushed to the back burner and reserved for weekends. I wanted something that was not drying, but not oily.
Hey friends! I wanted to share this yummy skin moisturizer because as we are deeper and deeper into this winter, I am using it more and more! It's a really simple recipe - easy to make at home. It's more like a body butter than a cream or lotion - for use on any dry skin, hands, feet, cracked skin, those rough patches on the elbows, knees, etc - you get the idea. I probably wouldn't use this one directly on my face unless I had a lot of dry skin there. It's also a great one to leave, ahem, in the bedroom if you catch my drift.
