We all go through that phase in our lives when we’ve experimented so much with our hair that we suddenly find our beautiful tresses becoming dull and dry. If your hair needs a serious pick me up, a home-made coconut oil and honey hair mask can do the trick. This mask is perfect to provide great nourishment and some serious hydration to dry and damaged hair.
What You’ll Need:
Organic Coconut Oil
Organic Raw Honey
For the coconut oil and raw honey you’ll want to use equal parts of each. For example, you can start with 1 tbsp. of coconut oil and 1 tbsp. of honey, mix it together in the bowl with the spoon. For longer hair, you may find that you need just a little more of each, or maybe less all together for shorter hair.
Before you start, you’ll want to place the towel around your neck to keep the mask from getting all over your clothes. Take the mask and apply to sections of your hair from top to bottom using your hands. Be sure to generously and evenly cover your hair with the mask. When done, simply clip your hair up and let the mask process for 30 to 40 minutes.
Note: You can apply the mask to wet or dry hair. Applying the mask to wet hair is highly recommended as it’ll be much easier.
Finally, wash your hair as usual with shampoo and conditioner and done. Enjoy your hydrated, revived tresses!
Before trying any home-made remedy, it is always good practice to take a small amount of the ingredients you are going to use and test them on a small patch of skin for a few minutes. If the area turns red and itchy or you feel any type of discomfort it’ll be best to avoid using those ingredients, try an alternative remedy instead. If no reaction occurs, then it is probably safe to use for your skin.
Admit it. You are completely obsessed with American Horror Story Coven. Same here! All that witchy girl power gets us super excited! We’re also loving this season’s hair. Here’s a definitive list of the best hairstyles from American Horror Story Coven (with tutorials).
1. Zoe Benson (Shiny and Straight)
Straight, shiny locks. This one should be a dosie. But alas, for frizzy, unmanageable textures this sleek look can seem impossible.
HOW TO: Check out Zelo’s line of frizz fighting products. The upcoming Zelo Control Plus Spray delivers 12 benefits to the hair including shine and manageability. Simply spray Control Plus to damp hair and blow-dry using a round brush for the most amazing silky, shiny, frizz-free blowout you’ve ever had in your life. It’s like…magic!
2. Misty Day (Bohemian Curls)
HOW TO: Use a curling wand with Zelo Velvet Gloss for soft wavy curls then run your fingers through your hair to loosen them up a bit. Add in a few feather extensions and you could pass for Misty Day’s twin…or Ke$ha.
3. Marie Laveau (Havana Twists)
HOW TO: This style is ideal for coarser, curlier hair that will hold the twists.Part your hair into 1″ sections and separate that section into two strands. Twist the strands around each other. Secure the ends with a rubber band. Always keep your twists hydrated with Zelo Velvet Gloss.
4. Myrtle Snow (Big Red Hair)
Okay, this may not be the sleekest hairstyle but, as Myrtle would say, “don’t be a hater, dear”. We are in love with her big red hair.
HOW TO: You’ll need a crimping tool and a comb for backcombing handy. Here’s a great tutorial on crimping technique.
I am absolutelyIN LOVE with this product!! I tried this for the first time almost 4 weeks ago. I have naturally kinky/curly hair that is extremely thick and hard to manage. Zelo gave me beautiful straightened hair and made my hair softer and more manageable without permanently changing my curl pattern. Over the past 4 weeks I have enjoyed wearing my hair both straight AND curly with this treatment in!! I was able to wear my hair straight for over a week without having to retouch with the flat iron at all until I washed it again. This product does exactly what it says, I am ordering another batch today, and telling all of my friends about it!! - Charlesa
I don’t brag about anything I haven’t tried myself, and I am so happy I decided to give this product a chance!! -Charlesa
More pictures of my hair after using this product. This was the next day after treatment. Hair was super SHINY and SILKY with NO PRODUCT ADDED!!I got so many compliments. Again I am 100% natural. I think my hair looks better with this treatment in it than it ever did with a perm!!I am not a beautician but I take very good care of my hair and I did this treatment at home myself. Sooo easy!! – Charlesa
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 59,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 22 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
This week we are answering a very good question from a fan @natasharoyal from our fan page on Facebook. She asked if we could post pictures that show the before, after, and post wash results of our Zelo Keratin Smoothing System. So here we go, below is a picture of a customer’s hair before the Zelo Keratin treatment, after the treatment, and after the first wash. Many customers want their hair to be straight without loosing their curls, and that is the beauty of this system. This keratin treatment smoothes out the curls and eliminates frizz for up to 30 washes without permanently altering the curl pattern. After the first wash the customer will see their curls return, yet they will be more manageable, easy to blow dry and style, and easy to achieve the “straight” look. The treatment utilizes a rich blend of oils, vitamins, and organic proteins to deliver sleek and shiny salon results at home.

With the upcoming release of the much anticipated sequel The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, we decided to do an inspired hair tutorial on how to do the braid Primrose Everdeen is wearing in all the trailers.
Step 1: Create a side part and divide the hair into two sections.
Step 2: At the end of the side part, begin an inverted braid (Dutch braid) along the the part line towards the forehead, only grasping additional hair from the side closer to the part.
Step 3: Once you have braided to the forehead line, start moving the braid down and around, grasping additional hair from both sections until you reach behind the ear.
Step 4: Continue the braid across the back of the head, but this time grasping additional from from the side closest to the head until you reach the other side of the ear. Continue the braid down the length of the hair and secure the ends with a hair tie.
Tip: If the braid is laying awkwardly, use bobby pins to pin it behind the ear to hold it in place.
Good luck, or should be say: may the odds be ever in your favor!
