Homemade Hair Conditioner Because You are Worth It ;)

Since all my recent posts have been about food, I thought I would post a beauty recipe today. After all looking good is also important 😉 If you are having trouble with dry hair this winter, this post might help you. Today’s post is about homemade hair conditioner. Strangely, I love giving hair treatments and facial treatments to my sisters and mom. If you were related to me, I would give you one for free. I recently made this hair treatment for my sister. She has long hair, so the amount of ingredients used in this post is for long hair.

(the literal translation is “for to eat nothing, for on head?” 😉 What this means is your looks is more important than your hunger (which of course is true).

Ingredients:
1/2 can coconut milk
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 tablespoon honey
1 egg
1/2 avocado
1 small banana

Directions:
1. Gather all the ingredients. DSC_1570-001

4. Enjoy your hair long.

5. Or, braided! But just make sure nobody eats your hair since the egg is uncooked. 941337_10200357124383908_1528221704_n

Indian Clay Mask

I love to try new skin care products especially if they are natural. This summer, I tried “Indian Clay Mask“. According to the reviews, it is suppose to be pretty good for closing pores and preventing acne formation. Consistent with the reviews, I found that this mask makes your skin much softer and smoother afterward. As the mask dries in your face, you will feel a pulling and tightening sensation. Once you rinse off this mask, your skin will be slightly red for a while, so do not try this mask in the morning. Also, make sure to moisturize your face immediately after rinsing. For this post, our model is Namrata Dangol. She just returned from a camping trip at Yellowstone National Park and her skin needed some attention, so we applied this mask.

Mustard Sunburn Treatment

Sherpanichef model Namrata Dangol went to Lewiston, ID Saturday to carve out a corn maze with her professor. The corn maze in Lewiston is held every year in the fall. If you are in Moscow, Lewiston area, it is a fun event. Anyway, Namrata got a serious sunburn on her neck. So, I made a mustard baking soda paste for her. Mustard and baking soda are both very good for reducing redness and preventing blisters.
