A few weeks ago I received a free sample of Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor, yesterday morning I gave it a try.
The package states that it’s a deep conditioner for damaged hair and it will restore manageability and shine.
The first thing I noticed when I tore open the packet was the scent, it was awesome, fresh and fruity, and today, a full 36 hours later and after a hot iron treatment, I can still smell it perfectly and I love it.
The product itself is an awesome consistency which means that you can apply it to your wet hair without an issue. I left it on for around 3 minutes (the package states anywhere between 1 – 3 minutes depending on how much of a treat your hair needs) and then rinsed it off with warm water.
After towel drying my hair, I merely had to run my fingers through my hair to de-tangle, no brushing required which was great because I hate brushing my hair when it is wet.
The outcome? My hair is softer than its been in forever, the scent is great and its non oily which is an even better thing as I find that when I tend to condition my full head my hair gets oily after the first 24 hours.
The price is R84.99 for a 250ml and can be found in most Clicks stores, I can honestly say that the price is worth it, my hair truly did deserve that little bit of heaven!
This project did not come out as well as I wanted it to, it might be because I didn’t have the colours that I actually wanted with me or it could be that I was sitting at my desk and was getting interrupted the entire time I was trying to do my nails.
The general idea I had in my head was to paint the main coat blue and then have little white and darker bubbles in the corners.
I used Tip Top’s Cha Cha Cha (blue) and Cream Puff (white), the darker blue/green colour is some random, unnamed bottle of nail polish.
Let me know what you think (bearing in mind I hadn’t done a proper clean up yet)?
In my earlier post I mentioned that I would be doing a bit of a hand/nail cleansing process. In order to do that I specifically wanted to start off with a hand exfoliation. With that in mind, I headed off to Clicks and looked around and truth be told, I really couldn’t find anything that was reasonably priced and/or caught my eye or nose with a decent enough scent.
I came home and decided to do a little research, I came across a few pages with the whole DIY deal and decided I might as well try it. It seems easy enough, so why not right?
The basic ingredients I decided to go with were:
- Coconut Oil
- Brown Sugar
I used 3 tablespoons of each in my mixture – I didn’t want to waste it in case it turned out crap.
After mixing it all together it basically ends up looking a bit like this – bear in mind that in a cooler climate it will be a lot more solid because of the Coconut Oil.
I used a very small amount, initially it was a little difficult to actually spread around my hands but once I got it working and massaged it into my hands for 45 seconds I washed it off with cold water.
The scent is great, its got the whole summer beach vibe going on thanks to the Coconut Oil and my hands are baby soft.
I would suggest following up with a good hand/cuticle cream to keep them moisturised.
The pics below are before and after shots of both hands, please let me know what you think, what suggestions you would use in a hand exfoliator and I will definitely give that a try too!
