Confession Sunday #5- Reverse cleansing of Face. 

Hi Friends, 

I’m sure all of you have heard about reverse shampooing of the hair. It’s all about conditioning the hair first and that’s followed by the shampoo. As supposed to shampoo followed by conditioner which is the regular method. People say that it makes your hair look lively and voluminous and whatever else the reason is, it simply doesn’t work out for me. 

Anyway, while this reverse cleansing of hair was gaining so much attention, I realised that I adopt the same method too but not with hair! It’s a well known face care routine that face wash is followed by scrub, Face mask and toner. However, I have come to realise that scrubbing the face first followed by the face wash works wonders for me. Especially while I have just wiped off my makeup and there are still traces of the makeup and grime left on my skin. 

It’s as simple as it sounds- I pick out my favourite face scrub, apply on wet face and gently massage it on my skin. This removes the dirt along with the dead skin cells, dry patches and everything unwanted. Following that, I use my face wash to perfectly cleanse my face and that’s it! My skin feels all fresh and smooth and completely free to breathe. 

Currently I am using 

  • Lakme clean up strawberry face scrub 
  • Lever Ayush natural fairness saffron face wash. (A post coming up all about this product!)

So that’s my confession for this week guys. Try it out and if you like it, then this confession can be considered a trick/hack as well!  😂😘

Love…… Kani…. 💝💖

Confession Sunday #5- The octopus hair! 

Hey Friends! 

I know I’m a day late, but we had some issues with the internet! So here I am with this week’s Confession. This one is more like a tip or hack than a confession. It is how I can guarantee a long, healthy and well nourished hair! “The Octopus Hair” 😂

Once in a month, I make time to give my hair the care it so deserves. Since I am residing in a place where the weather conditions and water is so adverse, I have to follow this through if I want to maintain healthy hair. 

So what I do is, I take small portions of my hair just like the way we do while straightening or curling. I comb it out to remove any knots and then apply coconut oil to that section thoroughly. I then braid it (roughly) before I move to the next section. I continue to do this until all my hair is divided into about 8-9 braids! It looks really funny, believe me! Then I lightly tug at the braids, one by one, to improve blood circulation to the roots. This helps in the growth of your hair. I sleep on it so that the oil works it’s wonder all through the night before I wash it off the next morning! 

Why this method instead of the regular oiling of your hair? 

Simple- it is a guarantee that each and every hair is completely covered. Coconut oil has lot of amazing advantages and is very important for your hair. I know it’s too tedious a job and who has the time! But personally, it has been helping me a lot. 

Try this one out and do let me know how it worked out for you! 😊
