Appreciate Thursday

Stop lying to yourself. You can lie to anyone else in the world, but you can’t lie to yourself.  Our lives improve only when we take chances, and the first and most difficult chance we can take is to be honest with ourselves. 



new love

Appreciate Thursday

Stop running from your problems. Face them head on.  No, it won’t be easy.  There is no person in the world capable of flawlessly handling every punch thrown at them.  We aren’t supposed to be able to instantly solve problems.  That’s not how we’re made.  In fact, we’re made to get upset, sad, hurt, stumble and fall.  Because that’s the whole purpose of living – to face problems, learn, adapt, and solve them over the course of time.  This is what ultimately molds us into the person we become.

i have been thinking about getting into the moroccan oil revolution for a long time now but just could not justify paying around $40 for a bottle of oil. finally today, after randomly walking into the pharmacy near my office, i was lucky enough to find a good bargain- a full size shampoo for $15 and a small bottle of the morrocan oil (25ml) for $13. bargain!
i came home with the mission of trying out my new purchases and WOW am i in love! my hair naturally curly and quite fine, so it tends to know very easily. i try not to use a ton of heat on it as well as my hair responds by becoming brittle and clumping into a giant knot- which is not a whole bunch of fun to comb out.
then there is the issue of how much hair falls out with each wash- i generally try to wash my hair twice a week- depending on how hot it is here. no matter what i have tried- creams, potions, lotions, masks, oils- nothing seems to strengthen my hair. my hairdresser even seems amazed that im not bald by the amount of hair that falls out with gentle wash ( let me tell you, having a professional say she is "freaked out" isn't the nicest feeling) but, moving on... tonight i might have just found my saving grace. i used the shampoo and just gently massaged it into my scalp and wow it felt good. im not someone who jumps on bandwagons with the latest this and that- but i have heard a whole heap about this range and i must say that im glad i ended up getting the shampoo. while rinsing it out, only a few strands of hair fell out- which had me thinking "whaaat?"  i mean, hair still fell out, but not a whole clump as usual. after one wash. a good result. i mean wow. so good.
i have tried the oil on my ends, and i guess time will only tell whether it livens up my curly mop of fine, volume lacking hair.
but so far? absolutely rating it.

this is not a sponsored post, i handed the money over myself :)
