So it’s an another edition of Fruits, Vegs et Toi?… I’m praying that by now it’s a deliberate effort we’re putting towards adding these into our diet… For me, I had wash day in the weekend and I decided to try the banana recipe for soft hair/conditioning. I had my fingers crossed because the last time I tried one of the mix with egg (can’t exactly remember what I mixed up) my hair came out really really harsh and hard!!! I really didn’t want to wash my hair buh I’m tryna develop a habit of atleast 2weeks (deep conditioning)especially when I don’t have a protective style on…My hair curls are back on, moisturizing mostly with water and some little mix I had in a bottle (Hair butter, castor oil, jojoba oil, hair milk and 80% water)…
I let it sit for 25mins, rinsed out then used my Cowash… The result? my hair is softer than ever even after it dried!!! Have to do this more often whenever I run out of my bestie (Eden’s Jojoba Deep Conditioner which does wonders to my hair)!! Have you tried any of the recipes yet? Please Let us know how it turned out…
Back to the reason for today’s post…. Pineapples and Oranges..
Incase you didn’t know Oranges are medicinal, they work like magic especially for cold and catarrh!! Once my dad caught the flu I bombaded him with oranges and it disappeared in 2days (well with the help of allergy drugs aswell…). The reason they are powerful is because they are rich in Vitamin C. If you’ve noticed Vit. C does a lot of wonders -repairing worn out stuff in the body. Oranges help in weight loss, helps fight cancer, prevents diabetes, kidney stones, has anti-inflammatory properties which prevents arthritis and helps lower cholesterol.
They help moisturize skin, treat dark spots and Acne.
They also serve as a great conditioner (details below). They contain Folic Acid (Vit.B), Vit. C to stimulate hair growth and Insonitol (Vit.B) which helps prevents hair loss. They also prevent hair breakage, give shiny hair and control Dandruff.
