Deep Conditioner mix 2.0!

So two posts ago i shared with you my deep conditioner mix. I'm temporarily trying out the Tresemme Naturals conditioner with a few other bits and bobs until i can go and purchase my regular conditioner (Elasta QP Intense Fortifying Conditioning Treatment).
The thing i love about the Elasta QP conditioner is that it contains silk proteins so i am able to keep my hair strengthened during the week with a light form of protein. It also is super moisturising and so i find that it has the right protein- moisture balance for me.

Unfortunately the Tresemme conditioner is a moisturising conditioner and so it lacks the protein my hair craves. SO after browsing the interwebs i discovered a way to fix my temporary problem... Coconut Milk!
It may sound strange but coconut milk has a great source of protein. It's light, and can added to your mix with ease. I purchased my can of CM from Asda for just 89p!
To create the mix i added 1/4 cup of the Tresemme conditioner, 1 tablespoon of Honey, approx. 3 drops of Castor oil and three drops of Extra Virgin Olive Oil to my mixing bowl. I heated a 1/4 of a cup of the coconut milk for a few seconds in a pot. This is optional but i just did this to remove any clumps and bumps. I then added the CM to my mixing bowl.
Tip: mix and add in the CM gradually or the mixture can get really watery. I had to learn this the hard way.
I then proceeded to apply the mix to my hair as normal.

Some benefits of Coconut Milk for the hair:
- Can promote growth 
- Effective at controlling excessive hair loss
- Contains Vitamin E and high levels of fat which work well to moisturise hair
- No harmful side effects
- Helps to control dandruff
- Can be used alone as a protein treatment.

Honestly, i do like this method and i did feel and see a comparison between this and my former mix without the CM. However it does seem like it would be a hassle in the long run. I think that, like most, i would prefer to buy one product that has it all rather than buying separate products. So with saying, that i cannot wait to repurchase my Elasta QP conditioner! lol. But this method has definitely helped in the meantime. :)

Have any of you tried Coconut Milk? What were your thoughts on it?

Heyy guys!
So about two posts ago i mentioned that i had two pieces of news for you guys, so here i am with the first.

If you haven't already guessed from the rather large logo above i have started my own jewellery line! woop woop!
This is something i've been wanting to do for ages and i'm so excited to finally be launching my own little boutique.

It's amazing how many brand names are actually taken so i decided to keep mine simple and keep with the theme of my blog.

The website is: 

so feel free to have a look around and get your hands on a piece of jewellery if it takes your fancy.

So far i have 8 pieces listed but i'll be adding more during the week. The rings are all vintage and so you'll have to be quick to snatch them up, but there are plenty of earrings. 
All items are made by myself. I also offer a made to order service, and so if there is a specific requirement you need or design you would like then feel free to make a request by emailing me at rebecca.awot@gmail.com

I will be shipping items everywhere :) but shipping costs will apply. However keep your eyes peeled for discount codes which will be coming to you soon!

Anyway, i hope you like! :D
I'd love some feedback (good and bad) from my fellow bloggers so get in touch! :)
Take care for now.

Deep Conditioner mix!

Heyy guys!
I thought i'd share with you a new deep conditioner mix i'm trying out. 
As you can see it consists of the Tresemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Castor Oil and Honey

If you read a previous post of mine you'll know that i didn't have the best time with Honey when i used it as a hot oil treatment, but i figured i'd give it a try as part of my deep conditioner mix; one, because i hate wasting things and two, because it was no longer edible.

The consistency of the mix is quite thick and almost resembles lumpy custard lol, so it's great for really moisturising my new growth.
The Tresemme Naturals Conditioner itself has a lovely aroma with one of its main ingredients being avocado oil and so it gives off a very fresh scent.

So far my hair is loving this mix. It's uber moisturising and leaves my hair feathery- soft. 

I'm thinking about switching my cowash product of choice (Hello Hydration) to Tresemme Naturals. 
Let me know if any of you have used it and what you think of it.
Also feel free to share your fav deep conditioning mix below!

Take Care 'til next time! :)
P.S. What d'you guys think of my new blog title? Thought it needed a bit of a revamp!
