Sunday Snip #3

I've been wiped out for most of the week with a HORRIBLE cold - luckily it cleared up in time to greet my mum and sister for the weekend (more on that adventure in another post) so here's my roundabout of hairy goings on and hints and tips for you.

Did you know?...
Even on a good hair day with the healthiest of hair, we will lose between 40-100 strands of hair! Yikes!
Handy hint!...
Give your hair a pamper this evening by applying a mask of mashed strawberry, mashed banana and olive oil. The fruit gives your hair a great smell and the olive oil helps give hair shine and repair if damaged. Add mixture to hair (wrap in a towel or shower cap and rinse) Use a little shampoo before adding water when rinsing to ensure you remove the oil properly.

How did they do it?
The Tudor's saw a large, high forehead as a sign of beauty, and women often plucked the hair from their hairline to create this look. Ouch!

Hair product of the week...
Aussie leave in conditioner. I love the stuff. And so does my sister. She suffers from greasy hair and struggles to keep in conditioned so this is perfect for the ends and mid lengths and light enough for her to use. It smells fantastic and a bottle lasts ages.

Celeb Hair of the week...
Frankie Sandford from the Saturdays. She rocks the short hair - she put the extensions in a while back but now I think she's realised that short hair really works for hair.
I love the colour, the cut and the styling in this picture. It's still a really feminine look without masses of hair.

Happy Sunday you lovely lot, let me know what your best 'snippet' of the week is...
