Using Bath and Body Works True Blue Spa Products on Your Hair? GENIUS.

hey people.
well, something interesting i ran across while going through blog details. it looks like someone out there found me through an interesting search term that i wish i would have thought of sooner: “using lay it on thick bath and body on hair.” WOW. well, i got a couple thoughts and ideals on this one for you, if youre out there reading this.

first of all… whoever you are, you are GENIUUUUUS. i dont know why i didnt think about this sooner. maybe i did, and i forgot because i stopped using the product for a year or two. but once i saw that search term, light bulbs started flashing in my head.

now we need to get specific. now while the lay it on thick shea butter is a GREAT moisturizer for your skin and hands (especially in this dry, cold season) and has great potential for your hair… i want you to know about their lotion product that is made SPECIFICALLY for your hands… the Lay It On Thick Hand Cream. this one, the last time i remember, has added biotin and shea oil for brittle nails… which is also AWESOME for your hair. also, its fragrance free, which is also a plus since i dont need any extra chemicals in my hair. i will be watching out for anything like waxes or things like that… dont need any surprises when i try to wash out my hair.

so yeah. thanks for the great ideal. and your timing was even better; they are having a buy two, get two free sale at B&B right now. im going to buy now, and start this ideal with my new braiding cycle. and i will definitely keep you updated.

Bio-Oil is the Truth and The Future Pt. 2: For Your Face | MegaTek and your Nails.

hey there.
so. its time to get into bio-oil for the face. while it has been a certified win for me body-wise (great for evening tone, reducing scars and stretchmarks), ive been trying it on my face, seeing if it would produce the same result. now my main concern with bio oil and my face is clogging my pores.  i already have fairly oily skin, and i will break out if i dont watch it.  what i was hoping for was help with these little lines im starting to see around my eyes, dark circles under my eyes, along with any fading of old acne spots.
welp, i pretty much got what i expected all across the board. the good news is yes. bio oil is nice for your face. especially for people who have dark circles under their eyes. it evens out the tone of your skin across the board. especially for acne spots. ive got alot of fading in old marks on my face, which dont seem to clear up as fast as they used to (oh boy. lol). another win is the fact that it has helped decrease  those little lines under and around my eyes… and kept those lines from deepening any further. its pretty great.
the bad news? yeah. i do break out a bit. even if im washing and witch hazel-ing every night, im still gonna catch a blemish here and there. i had to break out the proactiv for the first time in a while to calm it down a bit, and that is working (their green tea moisturizer is pretty good too… i got it for free tho. dont know if id pay for it just yet). and any blemishes i do catch from the bio oil are REALLY small… and heal up quickly (odd enough). the best thing for me to do at this point is only use it under my and around my eyes. maybe on my neck and chest too.
in all, id definitely give it a try if youre curious. i would highly suggest that you make sure you have a good facial soap on you (neutrogena face bar or dr. bonners peppermint soap are good for me). i wash at night, apply the bio oil to the undereye area, sleep with it on, then wash it off first thing in the morning. if i need it (which i usually do), ill throw on the proactiv green tea moisturizer for a nice morning tingle.

if youre reading, hope it works for you.

now, on to part two… megatek and your nails. the surprise win.
now from the get go… ive always had a hard time growing out my nails. i didnt do it much as a kid because 1. i couldnt (lol), and 2. i played piano, and if your nails were too long, my teachers would stop pratice and make me cut them. lol (whatup ms. kliensasser/huang). as ive gotten older, its gotten better. i can grow them out, but only to a certain point before they get brittle and break. and they grow so slow.
now my main and only intent for using megatek was for moisturizing and strengthening my hair, which its doing great (hope to have more results for you in a few more weeks). but it turns out its ALSO really great for both strengthening and growing your nails too. its been great. it was weird, because after using the megatek on my hair, i found myself having to trim my nails much more often than i used to. and when i cut them… they were really strong and thick. sure enough, when i started applying megatek directly to my nails… i got great results. so yeah ladies… if your also looking for nail strengthening, megatek is also a winner for you.

thats about it for now. next post, ill be talking in depth about monistat and your hair. i know a lot of you freak out when you read it, but  you know i wouldnt be talking about it if it didnt work. also gonna look into taking bio oil to the next level… and using it in my hair. i have tons of pros and cons to go through before i do it tho.

thanks for stopping by and reading.
