How To: Have Healthier Hair

Hello, loves. Lately I’ve been trying to improve the quality of my hair since it’s become dry and started to look unhealthy. So here are some tips that helped me.

First things first, I try not to use any heat on my hair. I don’t blow-dry anymore. Have to admit, that was kind of hard to let it air-dry and at the beginning my haircut looked like crap. However, it seems that now my hair is used to live without blow-drying and it falls nicely.

Then, I started to use castor, burdock and agrimony oils (sure you knew about those saviors) to stop hair thinning and to promote hair growth. I’ve been doing this for 2 weeks and the results start to show up. The hair is already shinier and a bit thicker, so I will definitely suggest you trying this out. What you do is pick the oil, generously apply it on your scalp and massage it in for 5-10 minutes. After that, put on a shower hat to cover the hair and keep your scalp warm, wrap a towel over your head to boost the healing process for your hair. Leave it for 1-2 hours. I do it at night, before my night shower two times a week.

Another useful advice I’ve found is to use only cool water to wash and rinse the hair. I thought it wasn’t the best option, so I did a research. The thing is that when you use hot water on your scalp, all vitamins and “food” for your hair wash out of pores because they are still open. Therefore, all those oils and masks give you no result. Cool water, though, shuts up your pores, so everything necessary for your healthier hair stays in and feeds the roots.

Still, the best thing you can do for your hair and health overall is to eat clean, drink enough water and sleep. Make sure you consume enough protein, iron, vitamins A and E, biotin (vitamin B7) and, again, maintain a well-balanced diet.

Hope this post inspired you and helped a bit. Do your own research, stay healthy and beautiful!

Love,

Striped Mood

Well, the sun is still bright, but the coolness of the evening suggests that summer is moving inexorably towards the end. That means we didn't die from heat and our favourite jackets start to return to the wardrobe again. And finally, I can show you my love at first sight - a striped skirt. It's not a secret how much I love stripes and if I could choose one print for life, my choice would be obvious. I hope you like it as much as I do. Take your time and enjoy the latest hot days, autumn is almost upon us!

Love,

Beauty Favourites: June/July

Hey, folks! The new beauty post is finally here! At first, we decided to combine our favourites of June and July. However, while being in Belgium, we did a little haul in The Body Shop, so this post is more likely to be a review for some goodies we got there with a tiny bonus. Another cool thing is that both of us tried all the products listed below. So yeah, let the party begin!























The Body Shop. How do one describe The Body Shop? We don’t have one in Ukraine and every time we are there it feels like heaven. All that aromatic stuff, beauty jars and packages. Ahh. Have to admit that we are kind of scrub and body butters addicted. Just a bit. Okay, maybe not a bit. What we’re trying to say is that you guys have to try their Mango and Coconut exfoliators

Black

Hi there! How are you guys spending your last month of summer? I hope that more “colorfully” than I, because for this post, which we shot when I was in Kiev for a few days, I chose almost total black look. Yeah, black, again. I feel so comfortable in it, even in such hot days, my hands are still drawn to the clothes of that color. But anyway, we all know how important it is to find something that you really like to wear. So, I will enjoy my “black days of summer” and get ready for the new season. Stay with us, we are already preparing the new outfits for the fall! 

Love,

Paris Calling

There are moments when you want to escape from all the craziness going on in your life, just become someone else for that day. And it’s absolutely okay. Feel free to do that. Do something unusual for you. Well, I wore high heels and that’s a big deal I have to say. Of course, I would die if I wore those a minute longer after we finished the shoot. But you know what? Having that Parisian vibe for a bit gave me so much inspiration and that’s exactly what I needed. 

Love,
