🤷🏽♀️HOW TO FIX DRY, BRITTLE HAIR!🤷🏾♂️
🤔Do you have ROUGH, DRY hair?
😑Does your hair BREAK EASILY?
😴Does your hair GROW SLOW?
😵Does your hair look DEAD because its DRY?
🤫Is your hair FRIZZY?
👌🏾Do you love the look of hair SO SHINY and HEALTHY it looks like GLASS?
YES? Well then THIS IS FOR U!
⛄️In the cold weather, no matter HOW “perfect” your hair is … it still gets affected by the cold bitter air. It gets dry, static, knotted (especially for me and my long hair…scarves + long hair = giant hair ball) so I like to use my easy #DIY leave in conditioner after I wash my hair to not only get SUPER HYDRATED hair, but EXTRA SHINY HAIR!
👵🏾I shared this recipe on my youtube 6 years ago (ahhhh time flies), and I still use it to this day…but with little tweaks to create THE PERFECT mixture for helping dry brittle hair! .
ALL YOU NEED:
🌿ROSEMARY LEAVES (fresh is the best, but you can also use dried rosemary or rosemary tea)
🌸LAVENDER LEAVES (you can use lavender tea for this, fresh lavender, essential oil etc)
🥒ALOE VERA (if you’re allergic, sub 1 tbsp of glycerin instead)
🥃Boil rosemary leaves + lavender in 1 CUP of WATER until it turns brownish
🍦Scoop out the precious aloe vera + blend until it turns into a liquid (make sure its runny!)
🌬Once the rosemary has COOLED COMPLETELY, mix the two together and pour into a bottle to use
💦I APPLY THIS ON FRESHLY WASHED (shampooed) HAIR - you can STYLE your hair with this, or let it air dry! Perfect for ALL HAIR TYPES!
😄one of my fav things about this- it prevents your hair from getting oily fast!
💁🏽♀️Store in the fridge for up to 1-2 weeks
😱WHY YOU NEED TO DO THIS:
✅Makes hair GLOSSY (so shiny it looks like glass)
✅PROMOTES HAIR GROWTH
✅Prevents greying of hair
✅Prevents DRY SCALP
✅HELPS HAIR GROW THICKER+STRONGER
✅Stops HAIR LOSS
✅hydrates + conditions hair
✅maintains healthy scalp
✅it makes hair SUPER soft + SHINY + HEALTHY

5 MIN MATTE NATURAL EVERYDAY MAKEUP
😍Lately I’ve been obsessed with looking completely matte…. heres my fav way to wear an ALL MATTE look that takes less than a few mins every morning and is perfect for everyday!
😒OK to begin.. I got really excited to try this lip plumper cuz it looked interesting and at first It felt like it was working cuz of all the tingling but its the most painful lip plumper of all time ..I felt like my lips were chewed up and the plump doesn’t last... I ended up with a weird plump moustache...no ma’am my regular moustache is more than enough for me tysm👨🏾
🌟I’m using @farsalicare ROSE GOLD ELIXIR to moisturize my chewed up lips

🤷🏽♀️HAS YOUR HAIR BEEN SHEDDING?! Mine was shedding SO MUCH over the summer and I low key started to freak out!… so I started using this and now I feel MUCH BETTER. Its a super INEXPENSIVE way to make your hair STRONGER from THE ROOT.. which results in HEALTHIER HAIR, LESS SHEDDING and STRONGER, SHINY hair..and as a bonus.. THIS ALSO helps STIMULATE HAIR GROWTH!
🤓ALL YOU NEED IS:
🦊GINGER - a good chunk of it - I don’t use measurements for this I just break off a chunk
🌱ALOE VERA LEAF - I don’t know why I don’t have a plant growing in my garden I USE THIS SO MUCH! … actually I do know.. I am not a very good garden mom cuz y’kno..spiders and me not wanting to be Spider-Man and all
🌪BLEND! initially it’ll look like your aloe isn’t going to blend but just give it a few seconds and it’ll turn into a watery consistency
🌧strain the mixture after BLENDING..u don’t want ginger flakes in your hair
💦Pour into a spray bottle for easier application-spray ONTO YOUR ROOTS
🔥If you want to spray this ALL OVER YOUR HAIR you CAN! Its great for your skin too as a toner for glowing skin! but in todays video Im just using it on my scalp
🧕🏾wrap your hair in a silk scarf/silk bonnet + go to sleep. Wash out in morning - you don’t HAVE to wash it out if you don’t want.
👌🏾Do this as often as you can. If you’re sensitive it CAN tingle
❄️Store in the fridge
Ps. Hair shedding is normal... but it can shed more than usual so jus keep an 👀out 😊
💥Why this works:
🔸-Ginger stimulates blood flow to scalp.. pushes hair follicles to grow hair faster
🔸-high in fatty acids -prevents your hair from thinning/shedding
🔸-contains magnesium, potassium, phosphorus and other vitamins that your hair needs to be beautiful and healthy
🔸-strengthens follicle to grow strong healthy thick hair that doesn’t shed
✅hydrates and conditions your hair
✅maintains healthy scalp
✅it makes your hair SUPER soft and SHINY + HEALTHY

❤️Happy anniversary to the only man who gives me butterflies in my tummy every time he looks at me @lifeofsal (And no babe it’s not just gas 🙄😊)
🙏🏾Also.. just wanted to say: thank you for always leaving just 1 square left on the toilet paper roll - while some might find this annoying, I appreciate you not leaving it empty. By doing this consistently over the years, you’ve taught me that less is more.
🙅🏾♀️Also thank you for killing spiders for me...it means a lot to know that you understand that I just can’t take on the responsibility of being spider man at this time in my life.
🕷Also double thank you for leaving the dead spiders body on the floor where you killed it- because apparently it’ll send a message to the rest of the spider gang to not fux with us, and while I understand the concept, I would totally understand if you just flushed it.
🤷🏽♀️Also thank you for feeding me when I’m angry, because you know that I’m actually just hungry, and I’m not me when I’m hungry.
😊Also thank you for leaving me alone but also paying attention to me at the same time.
❄️Also thank you for unwillingly giving me your warm back to heat up my cold hands and feet
👫And most importantly, thanks for being my bestest friend in the whole world and watching Bob’s burgers with me every night and for responding to me every time I say “Hey Jimmy Jr” in Tina’s voice.
LYSM forever @lifeofsal 😊❤️
GET RID OF ACNE, DARK SPOTS, DARK CIRCLES, FACIAL HAIR and get GLOWING SKIN with THIS ONE MASK! 😱As a teenager, I had the kind of acne that sits under your skin, looks bumpy, and red and lives rent free on your face. THE WORST! I also had a bad habit of picking at it cuz I thought if I stab it, it will die and never return.. NOPE. It was so frustrating and I always felt so self conscious about it esp since I wasn’t really allowed to wear foundation etc to cover it up 😞I couldn’t believe that something home made could work on my skin, but in desperation, I gave in, I listened to my grandma and my mom made it for me.. and my LIFE was forever changed. Literally. If you’re struggling with acne and uneven skin, or you’ve never tried diy before.. please let this be the one. ❤️This is what made me fall in love with #DIY… this was the first mask I EVER posted on youtube and I’ve literally had people hug me in the street and cry and tell me how this has also helped THEIR acne and over all skin, when nothing else worked. This one mask DOES IT ALL, and its a simple, not so secret, desi recipe.
ALL YOU NEED:
🍑1 cup chickpea flour - 🌶1 tsp turmeric (use less if you have fair skin) 🥜1 tsp almond oil
🍼1/2 cup milk (vegans - use almond milk)
🍯Mix it up until you get a paste
💁🏽♀️Apply onto clean skin
🤫Let it dry COMPLETELY
🤪Slightly wet it and massage off in circular motions
Put leftovers in fridge!
✊🏾I challenge you to use this twice a week for 1 month. Thats what I did to get rid of my acne and this is still one of my GO-TO masks to this very day! 🙏🏾WHY THIS WORKS:
Chickpea flour - zinc kills acne + exfoliates skin
Turmeric - anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant rich, fades acne scars and heals broken skin - turmeric DOES stain but its only temporary.. wear clothes you don’t mind spilling on and if it stains your skin, use a toner to easily remove it
Almond oil - helps lighten dark spots
Milk - contains acids and all sorts of vitamins to soothe and hydrate skin 👇🏽👇🏽Tag a friend you’d turn yellow with and don’t forget to 👍🏾👍🏾like this video to help ya girl out fam! ❤️❤️❤️
🎵: @alwaysnever - know this
Bae wanted to recreate one of his favorite looks on me.. how do you think he did?? Let him know in the comments belowwwwwww 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽
🙏🏾IF YOU WISH to accept the responsibility of this sacred ritual @lifeofsal … your responsibilities will include washing all my makeup brushes and wetting my beauty blender after i sit down, cuz most likely i forgot to 😂😂
🐻Squishing my cheeks to apply primer/skincare.. so soothing
🐭Pinching my nose to blend my contour.. genius
🤼♀️and can we get a round of applause for this unique method of putting your client/model into a rear chokehold.. highly appreciated the lack of escape i had when you had that mascara wand at my eyeballs…innovative.
✊🏾✊🏾✊🏾BABE YOU DID THAT!

😱I’ve seen posts of this pic of me on pages with ppl accusing me of bleaching my skin, multiple surgeries (I’ve only had 1 cuz I couldn’t breathe from my broken nose -septorhino + no fillers), comments calling me ugly + embarrassing etc. I POSTED THIS PICTURE on MY Instagram yrs ago (still in my feed) cuz I’m proud of who I am. The only embarrassing thing is that some people have the heart to call a CHILD ugly. I was 9.
I wasn’t allowed to shave my facial hair, or my legs + I definitely stood out in gym class when we were forced to wear shorts as part of the uniform (my legs looked like pants I was so hairy) I smelled like onions cuz my mom made curry all the time. I was greasy cuz My grandma always put oil in my hair. I heard the whispers in the halls. I. BEEN. THRU. IT. + for anyone that’s going thru it now, hold your head high, love urself + I promise life gets better.
My skin was deeper cuz I was a kid who loved riding my bike until the sun went down. As an adult I exfoliate + mind my business. I wear wigs + contacts cuz it’s totally ok to have fun with ur looks.
HOWEVER, I am FAR from embarrassed of who I am + where I come from. My family originates from India, my parents + their parents etc are from East Africa (wuddup Tanzania, Kenya + Uganda) + I was born in Canada. I speak kutchi + I know all the Kiswahili swear words lol I DO THIS FOR THE CULTURE. i rep my culture HARD on my socials + can confidently say that I am SO proud of my roots.
because the sad reality is that I grew up in a place where I was one of the only coloured kids in school. I was literally called the “token brown friend”. I’ll never forget the day a boy asked me WHY IM BROWN, and if it’s “BECAUSE I ROLLED IN MUD”. I didn’t have an answer back then, because I didn’t understand why I was different, or why I didn’t see anyone like me, in my environment, or on tv. I never told anyone or asked why I was different cuz honestly, as a kid, I was AFRAID to be different + who I was.
I wish I knew then, what I know now. I LOVE being different. I love the skin I’m in! You were made to be you. You were made unique + you should NEVER be afraid to be who you are. Stand proud fam. ILYSM ❤️
🤓Legend has it that...if you drink a gallon of water each day you won’t have time for anyone’s drama because you’ll be too busy peeing.. stay hydrated, stay moisturized and live your best life fam 👀
