Look before you leap

Hi guys,
    I dont know about you but the phrase "Look before you leap" was drummed into my ears as a child. It is a deliberate effort to ponder deeply the pros and cons before going ahead to do stuff. It requires careful thought but I have never been a poster child for carefulness. I am very impatient and with that comes a certain carefreeness(I hope there is a word like that) that has had some unsavoury consequences. In my healthy hair journey I have had to learn the hard way the importance of looking carefully before buying any product. On one occasion I bought a shampoo that I thought was a conditioner. I didn't look at the label properly, I saw the word "moisturing" and my brain filled in "conditioner" so I bought it only to discover upon attempted usage that I had bought a shampoo. The bad thing about this is the fact that it happened twice.
I was fooled by "Moisturizing"
I was deceived by the colour and consistency


Having learnt my lesson I decided to look out for the word CONDITIONER on my next trip to the supermarket. So with eyes open wide I marched to the hair product aisle and I picked a conditioner. Only...it wasn't what I wanted! 

I overlooked the "clarifying"

It was a conditioner alright but not a moisturing one. I did not stop to ponder about the clarifying claim the product carried so boldly on the label. I used it but it didnt hit the right spot and I had to go look for another conditioner. This time I had my bifocals on and I read every word on the bottle and with much glee I found what I was looking for - a MOISTURISING conditioner :-)

My beloved condish!!!



The moral of this story is ALWAYS READ THE LABEL of any product before you buy. It saves you a tonne of money, time and effort. Most  importantly it prevents the gnashing of teeth due to one's own folly. Have a great week.

I have bought tons of products since the last time but I haven't had time to do a proper review of each one. Its better later than never not so? I'm starting with the SHEA MOISTURE JBCO STRENGTHEN, GROW & RESTORE LEAVE IN CONDITIONER (now that's a mouthful isn't it?) I bought sometime in July.

CHEAP TRICKS // HEAT BASED DEEP CONDITIONING WITHOUT A STEAMER/DRYER

Hi guys,
     I hope you all are doing great. I have been thinking of how to make my blog better and I came up with a few ideas. I am thinking of introducing new series like the one above - cheap tricks which will feature once a month. It will contain tips and tricks I have learned along the way to make your hair journey much more affordable. I hope you will all benefit from it.
   My first trick is: Heat based deep conditioning without a steamer or dryer. As you may know deep conditioning and heat (moist heat) go hand in hand.  Infact I am yet to find any deep conditioner that does not recommend conditioning with heat. For example SHEA MOISTURE'S DEEP TREATMENT MASQUE (which I have reviewed on this blog) recommends using heat for 30 minutes while ORS REPLENISHING CONDITIONER (review coming up soon) recommends 10-15 minutes with heat. Why you may ask. Well the heat opens up your cuticles which makes absorption of nutrients much more effective and also a lot faster. However if you ar…
