Favorite product Friday

I've decided to share with yall a product every Friday that has been the highlight of my week. . . Its a new idea that sort of popped into my head but I'm willing to try it out so bear with me jejeje <3

This week my "favorite product" has literally saved me more than once from some crazy situations! And it issssssss Dr. Bronner's Castile soap (in peppermint) OMG OMG OMG that's about all that I can think of right now jejeje no but seriously this stuff is AMAZING. . . it has a MILLION uses and I'll share a few with yall

Number one: I tend to always get myself into problems pretty easily and usually it has something to with my appearance (more on this in the future LOL). This week I decided I would skip my usual hair mask of an avocado and extra virgin olive oil for virgin coconut oil and jojoba oil. . . That in and of itself is a recipe for disaster jeje to make it all worse I accidentally put it to much coconut oil, and I decided to sleep in it! So when I woke up I had to be somewhere and my regular shampoo bar wasn't getting the greasiness out and my hair sort of looked like this

BUT thankfully I remembered that I had a recipe for an awesome grease cutting shampoo when your hair needs extra bounce from being to greasy and it SAVED ME! LOL here is the recipe

* ½ cup water
* ½ cup Dr. Bronners liquid castile soap*
* 3 tbsp aloe vera gel
* 1 tsp jojoba or grapeseed oil

I whipped up a small batch of this and BOOM the grease came right out, then using my vinegar rinse my hair was photo ready LOL The coconut and jojoba did its job for sure though, my hair has never been softer!

Number two: I completely ran out of my favorite peppermint soap from the lovely Mrs. April (light of the moon) and didn't know what to do so I took my peppermint castile soap with me to the shower and only added like 4 drops of it to my loofah and it created the perfect amount of lather for a great bath :) It'll be excellent to hold me over until I can get more bar soap (which I prefer over liquid)

There are a million other amazing things you can do with DBCS which I will get to another time, but I wanted to share with yall how much im LOVING it right now more than ever jejeje YAY for non greasy healthy hair <3 

I was so happy I snapped a picture (this is my hair au-natural so forgive the poofiness LOL)

 Hope yall enjoyed my fave product of the week, have a FABULOUS Friday :)
