I’m a big fan of oiling my
head. Partly because I have curly hair which can use all the moisture it can get, and partly because I have psoriasis which can use all the moisture it can get. But in the past, when it came to getting the oil out and I wa
s on to my third shampooing, I would sometimes wonder if I was causing more damage than I was remedying.
The key, however, to making the job easier is to start with conditioner. Conditioner emulsifies the oil so it can be rinsed away. I apply big handfuls of it before I get into the shower and really work it through my hair before washing out.
then follow up with a single shampoo (bearing in mind I have dry curly hair–with a different hair type you may need to repeat) and then condition as usual. Done.
Don’t forget to enter Megan’s Birthday Giveaway which closes on the 31st of May!
Remember when I said I was collecting up some nice things for a birthday giveaway? Well, I’m now officially another year older so here it is: The Great Birthday Giveaway 2012.
I am not exaggerating when I say that this afternoon I looked at the g
oodies, and thought about stealing them all and running away (although technically I don’t think it’s stealing if you have actually bought the things yourself?). Instead I was strong and took a little picture and packed them away in their fun stripey bag.
Without further ado, here’s the swag:
In no particular order, it includes:
- Sally Hansen nail polish strips in Raise A Glass
- e.l.f. studio blush in Tickled Pink
- a packet of Rainbow Nerds
- O.P.I. Avojuice handcream in Mango
- lovely pink berry scented candle
- Maybelline Shine Sensational lipgloss in Freshly Sliced
- 12 silicon cupcake baking cups (I
have these exact ones)
- Australis Lash Length Extensions Mascara
- Natio Advanced Lifting and Firming Serum
- “Make Cleansing Pad” which is essentially a little face exfoliator/massager
That, my friends, is over $100 worth of prize goodness. I like to think there’s a little bit of something for everyone in that prize too. I’ve chosen these things because they are things I have used or currently own, and like. Particular faves are the handcream, the silicon baking cups, and the cleansing pad.
Of course, there have to be Rules. The rules here are simple: leave a comment below with a suggestion for a product we could review, or a place we could visit, or something else we could write about here at PPP that would float your boat, and you get an entry.
The contest is open to everyone (including any international chums). You can enter multiple times (as long as you make different suggestions each time). I will be quality-controlling for stupid or redundant suggestions e.g. “you should go to the moon and eat a cupcake LOLZ!!!1!!!!11!!” will not be counted. Although I would love to go to the moon and eat some red
velvet deliciousness, I cannot.
The contest will close on 31 May 2012 at which time I will use a random number generator courtesy of the internet to choose a winner. All outcomes are final and we won’t enter into correspondence blah blah etc.
Yay! Get suggesting below!
