Amazing Homemade Shampoo Recipes that you MUST Try!

 Amazing Homemade Shampoo Recipes that you MUST Try! : Commercially brought Shampoos are often packed with chemicals that make your hair smooth and give it luster for some time but ultimately they end up damaging your hair. Apart from these even most of the organic shampoos available are not pH balanced and applying them changes the pH of your scalp which affects your hair growth and vitality. Each one of your body parts has different pH and your scalp is no different. At the right pH, your follicles become stronger and healthier. To overcome all these problems the easiest (as well as the cheapest ) solution is to make your own shampoo.

 Amazing Homemade Shampoo Recipes that you MUST Try!

However, before you commit you must keep a few things in mind.

Your hair needs time to suit to homemade shampoo. Your scalp is packed with oil glands which are naturally equipped to produce oil, which is a good thing as it makes your hair healthier. The conventional store brought Shampoos to remove this oil with its lather. The oil glands respond to the shortage of oil by producing more oil. When you use a homemade shampoo, it doesn’t remove all the oil, giving your hair room to be nurtured naturally. So for the first few days of using these shampoos, you may feel that your hair is flatter than usual and you may have to shampoo more frequently, but with time you will see your hair adapting to it. So give it some time to adjust.

Your homemade shampoo may not lather as much as your store brought Shampoo. But that is because your homemade shampoo will contain no lathering agents.

The store brought Shampoo may smell stronger but that is only if you choose not to add fragrances to the shampoo you make. I personally would avoid adding any artificial chemicals.

So without further ado here are a few nourishing shampoos that you can make at home ;

How to do this?

If you want to get started on white energy meditation, then you can just follow this simple guide and experience the power of light within you:

  14. Try to feel this light wash away through your Ajna chakra(in your brain), and slowly move towards your Vissudhya(throat chakra) and Anahata(in your heart) to your Manipura( the chakra of your inner self which has your qualities and traits).
  15. Feel the pure energy in all your chakras. As the light passes through each chakra it cleanses and decongests it before moving on to the next chakra
  16. Once it reaches your Hara Chakra(the sacral chakra), experience it moves in a clockwise direction and swirls through it.
  17. Feel the energy cleaning your chakras very aggressively and powerfully. Allow the powerful light to decongest your clogged Solar Plexus. Feel yourself getting revitalized and recharged.
  18. Let the light run through you to you Mooladhara Chakra (located in the base of your spinal cord).
  19. Feel the light swirl through it, flushing through it powerfully. Continue to keep it cleaning you until you feel re-energized and light.
  20. Feel it travel through you downwards to your thighs… Then to your calves and them to your toes.
  21. Once it reaches your toes allowed the light to travel back from your toes to your head in a straight, all-cleansing manner.
  22. Feel it traveling through all the seven powerful chakras in your body and your soul finally reaching your brain and cleansing it.
  23. Allow it to quickly swirl in a clockwise manner and feel it burst through your head leaving you in in a state of calm and relaxation.
  24. Once this is done bring your hands to your chest and join them together in namaskar mudra.
  25. Be grateful for the divine calmness.
  26. Rub the palm of your hand and feel it getting warmed up.
  27. Place the heated palm on your closed eyes.
  28. Slowly open your eyes to the palm and wait until your eyes adjust to the light.

Ideally, you should follow this tip every morning.

3) Pineapple Juice for goiter:

  • Why does this work?

  • What do you need?
  1. 4-5 pineapple pieces
  2. A medium-sized carrot
  3. 2 tomatoes
  • How to use this?

a)Cut the tomatoes and carrots into small pieces.

Reducing goiter becomes easier. If you do these following exercises the thyroid and it’s adjoining muscles get stretched. This stretching improves the blood flow to these muscles, thereby reducing the goiter.

HUDA Flirt Lipstick

HUDA Flirt Lipstick Review

by Diksha S

Who is this for? The HUDA Flirt Lipstick is for anyone who wants to have natural looking lips. It is not very bright or conspicuous. The lipstick enhances your lips making it more attractive without masking their beauty. It’s especially useful for countering your lips.

Price:

₹1650 for 6ML.

HUDA Flirt Lipstick

My Experience with HUDA Flirt Lipstick

How to apply:

To get the best results you must first start with exfoliating your lips. I prefer to apply a little bit of lip balm before applying and lipstick; I feel it makes the lips look better. Next, line the lips with a suitable lip liner and apply the liquid lipstick.

The lipstick needs about half a minute to set.

Packaging:

The lipstick comes in a rectangular transparent tube with a rotatable rectangular black cap. This container is packed in a rectangular thick plastic box. The box contains the lipstick in between added protection by a thick paper which has information about the lipstick written on the underside. The packaging is really simple but exciting. Either side of the paper is elevated around the lipstick and has pictures of a lower and upper lip. This is their iconic packaging method which makes the lipstick lay in between the lips as if it is held by in between the lips.

Fragrance:

The lipstick has a very mild and soothing fragrance.

Shade:

The shade I am reviewing is called “flirt”. It is a very mild shade of purple (very mild indeed).

My experience:

HUDA is one of my personal favorite lipstick brands and this lipstick further enriches my fandom. The lipstick keeps my lips hydrated for long. As per the promise of the brand the lipstick is both waterproof and smudge proof. It is very long-lasting and feels very natural on my lips. There was no allergy or irritation of any kind on application. The matte finish is impeccable.

Pros:

1) The lipstick is water resistant. (Refer to pictures of swatches taken before and after running water over it)

2) The lipstick is smudge proof.

3) Its color is richly pigmented. The pictures of the swatches were taken after applying just one coat. The color reaches saturation with just one stroke.

4) The lipstick doesn’t settle in between lip lines giving the lips a healthier appearance.

5) No allergies or irritations were noted.

6) The lipstick is very long lasting. It can run as long as 5 to 6 hours with no retouching.

7) The container is very traveling friendly.

8) The lipstick after the application is really smooth.

9) Suitable for all skin tones

 Cons:

1) It is expensive.

Who do I recommend this to?

HUDA liquid lipstick is for anyone who loves rich but natural looking lips. It is very long-lasting and budges with neither water nor skin contact. HUDA liquid matte is for anyone who doesn’t like retouching but wants to have perfectly matte painted lips all day long. It’s definitely worthy of its price.

What is Hair Wax Used For ?

by Diksha S

What is hair wax?

Hair wax is the product a solid and waxy substance used to set and style hair. It is also known as style paste, putty, glue, whip, molding gum and styling gum.

It has been in use for a long time. As the name suggests, hair wax contains wax which helps to hold the hair and prevents disarray. Although their purpose is the same as hair gels, they are a better alternative for your hair as the wax in their composition styles your hair without stiffening them as alcohol in the gels do.

Different kinds of hair waxes can change the way you look and also change your style expression. It is perfect for achieving the perfect classic formal hairstyles as well as funky cool party hair settings. It allows restyling of hair without reapplying the product.

The carnauba wax contains a lot of esters, diesters and fatty alcohols.

4) Castor wax:

Castor wax is an opaque Vegetable wax. It is made from processing the oil obtained from castor seeds.

5) Japan wax:

Japan wax is made from certain berries of sumac found in Japan and China. It is not truly a wax as per it’s chemical composition it is more like fat with 95% of its composition coming from palmitin. It generally has a characteristic rancid smell.

How to do this?
  1. Get to the neutral position on your fours.

Elle 18 Berry Bestie Lipstick

Elle 18 Berry Bestie Lipstick Review

by Diksha S

Who is it for? Elle 18 Berry Bestie Lipstick is for anyone who wants a bright lipstick which doesn’t burn a hole through their pockets. It is good for casual outings.

Price:

MRP ₹100 for 4.3gram

Elle 18 Berry Bestie Lipstick

My Experience with Elle 18 Berry Bestie Lipstick

Shade:

The shade I got for myself is Berry Bestie. This lipstick shade resembles purple but has a hint of pink or fuchsia which results in a berry-like color. The shade is well suited for all skin tones and is bright and quirky.

Packaging:

The Elle 18 matte lipsticks lack a very luxurious packaging. The lipstick was encased inside a simple sleek black body which has a flat top. The lipstick possesses the same twist up the body of conventional lipsticks. The lipstick is very lightweight easy for carrying it around.

Pigmentation:

One thing that surely attracts all the young people to this brand is its rich pigmentation. The new formulation of the lipstick has clearly enriched its color and texture. However, it is my personal opinion that the lipsticks somehow fail to achieve the saturation of the color depicted.

Fragrance:

There is a very mild fragrance to this lipstick but nothing that is overwhelming or memorable.

My experience with the product:

The most important thing that one must keep in mind when thinking about makeup is a comfort. If you are not comfortable putting on something it is not going to enhance your looks but only diminish your confidence. The shade I got for myself is Berry Bestie.The most impressive feature of this lipstick is its soft creamy texture. The lipstick moisturizes your lips and keeps them hydrated. The lips do not feel dry or chapped even when applied without prior application of a lip balm. The lipstick, however, fails to impress me with its poor durability. The lipstick was neither smudge proof nor waterproof. Eating food with this lipstick on is impossible and you will end up with smudged lipstick. Also, I feel when compared to other products the lipstick fails to attain complete saturation.

Pros:

1) Bright colors

2) The lipstick feels natural on my skin

3) After applying the lipstick no dryness or allergies of any kind was noted.

4) It is relatively cheaper as compared to other brands.

5) The brand stays true to its promise and one stroke of lipstick is enough to attain the perfect bold look.

Cons:

1) Not smudge proof.

2) The lipstick is not waterproof

3) The lipstick is not long lasting and needs to be applied after regular intervals

4) Not transfer proof.

5) It doesn’t seem to fit the definition of matte as per se.

Who do I recommend this lipstick to?

Well the color pop Elle 18 is for anyone who loves quirky bright lips but is unwilling to pay half of their pocket money just for it. The lipstick is not for someone who is looking for putting up make up for the whole day. You need to apply the lipstick after regular intervals. The lipstick is good for casual outings with friends and family where makeup comes secondary to comfort.
