12 Ways You Can Use Baby Oil In your Skin Hair and Self Care Routine

When it comes to skin care or any product in general, we all love multipurpose one. I mean a product that can be used in multiple ways. Sounds so time saving and of course economic..! Isn’t it?


If you are following my BUDGET BEAUTY series on YouTube, here is one more to the list – Baby oil. 


Baby oil or if you consider baby products as a whole, they are very mild and can also be used by adults. Yes.! So baby oil is not just for a baby, it is for someone as precious as a baby, you..! 


Now let’s see how we can use it in 12 different ways in our daily skin, hair and self care. Ready?


Which one would you like to go with? Let’s go with skin care first. What’s say??


Skin Care:

  1. Face Oil:

This is again a debatable topic whether baby oil is good to be applied on face. Well the last time I checked it is quiet light weight hence most of the people do approve it. I personally find it working for my dry skin. But if you have sensitive or acne prone skin, I don’t really suggest oil for face.! 


2. Under Eye Treatment:

If you do not have budget for eye cream, baby oil can come handy. Apply a layer of baby oil on the under eye are and you can pat a tissue to absorb the extra oiliness. This will add moisture and takes care of the delicate under eye area. 


3. Makeup Remover:

We spend so much money on makeup removal products. Balm, cleanser, wipes, oil etc etc. Do you know baby oil exactly works like a makeup remover?? Plus the added moisture..! 


4. Lip Scrub:

Dry and chapped lips? Make a lip scrub at home using baby oil as a base.! You can mix it with sugar or rose petal powder to scrub away dead skin cells..! Hello soft pink lips.! 


Hair Care:

For Dry Frizzy Hair:

Na na, if you are thinking of applying baby oil directly to your hair, no, not suggested.! Then how to use it? If you have dry frizzy hair that needs instant hydration and shine, take few drops of baby oil on a tissue. Now run it through your hair.! This will make sure your hair gets adequate amount of hydration plus shine without making it look greasy.! 


Body Care:

  1. Bath Oil:

If you are a dry skin beauty yet you love long hot showers, add few drops of baby oil to your bathing water. It will make sure your skin doesn’t lose it’s moisture while you enjoy your hot water bath.

2. Body Moisturiser: 

To make your skin look and feel moisturised for long, apply few drops of baby oil on to the damp skin right after getting out of bath. This will helps to lock the moisture thus serving the purpose. 


3. Cuticle Oil:

In order to make your nail grow stronger and longer, cuticle care is important. If you are thinking of spending money on cuticle oil, hold on, instead spend it on baby oil. It is much cheaper and acts exactly like cuticle oil if applied on cuticles before going to bed every night. 


Self Care:

  1. Shaving Cream:

When we are in hurry and want to get rid of unwanted hair, we do reach out for razor. In order to make the razor glad smoothly, we need shaving cream or oil. Baby oil can be used for this purpose.! 


2. Post Waxing Aid:

Do you use wax strips for hair removal? I do.! As much as I love how clean it makes my hands and feet feel, I hate the fact that it does leave these nasty sticky patches. Getting rid of them is a whole different task all together. In those situations, baby oil comes as a great help. Just apply a layer of baby oil, massage a while and wash. Wo clean skin..! 


Makeup:

Yes baby oil can be used in daily makeup routine. How?

  1. As a Highlighter:

Highlighters are the quick fix to get that glow. Baby oil can replace highlighters.! Add few drops of baby oil to your foundation/ BB Cream/ CC cream or moisturiser and enjoy that dewy glow.! 


2. Lipstick to Lipgloss:

Wanna see magic? Let’s turn your favourite lipstick into gloss. Apply your lipstick. Now dab few drops of baby oil on top of it. Now isn’t it cool??


 Hope you find this post useful..!

When it comes to hair care or skin care grandma’s recipes are the best. They never fail to amaze us every time we use them. Today I am going to share one of such wonderful hair care recipes from my dear grandma.

Finding a shampoo that works or us is as difficult as finding our soulmate. Even if we succeed in finding one, the fact remains the same that the shampoo does contain some chemicals that might harm our hair in the long run. So, what’s the solution then??

No wo’rries honey, I am going to share a solution. It is a DIY (Do It Yourself) Shampoo recipe. It has no chemicals only solutions for all your hair problems.!!

All you need are 3 ingredients. Lets make our shampoo. Ready?

1. Amla/Indian gooseberry:
Rich in vitamin C, amla is widely used in Ayurveda for hair & skincare. Major benefits being:
1. Reduces hair fall.
2. Makes hair strong.
3. Reduces dandruff.
4. Treats premature greying.
5. Promotes hair growth.
6. Treats scalp infections.

2. Reetha:
Ayurveda says dandruff is the real culprit when it comes to hair fall. Reetha helps in controlling hair fall by removing dandruff. It has antibacterial & anti-fungal properties which helps in fighting dandruff & hair fall. Reetha also adds moisture to scalp them making it feel healthy & supple.

3. Sheekakai:
This is a well known hair care product. Benefits of using Shekakai are:

Keep this mixture overnight so that the water gets time to absorb all the goodness of these  ingredients. Your shampoo is ready to be used the next day. Yeeaahh!!

PS: Filter out the ingredients before using for hassel free use of shampoo.

Mygirlypedia Note:

These are my learning through personal experience:
1. Make sure you never let the shampoo come in contact with your eyes. If you do, you will be left with red eyes because it burns (nothing severe but yes its’ better to avoid).

2. It leaves your hair soft. You don’t need to use conditioner post this shampoo. Thanks to Reetha and shikakai. So cool huun!

3. If you have oiled your hair, you will need more quantity of shampoo. This is the same case with any other hair cleaner!

4. If you have not filtered out the ingredients, there might be some ingredients stuck to your hair. No worries, once you are done washing, once the hair is dry, you can gently comb your hair to remove them.

Keep coming back to Mygirlypedia for such amazing recipes.

Hair fall:

Curd is rich in calcium and protein. Our biggest nightmare, hair fall. Hair fall can be treated by using curd on our hair.

Curd acts as a natural conditioner. If you have dry damaged hair, applying curd will do the job of a conditioner.

Homemade Mask To Treat Hair loss and Hair Thinning

Hair loss has been a common problem among a lot of people out there. Be it men or women, we all love our crown – Our hair. Hair loss is like a nightmare that haunts us..!

Today I am going to share a hair mask that you can try at home to reduce or to stop hair loss. This mask also helps in regrow the of hair..! Sounds like a saviour. Isn’t it?

Mask I am going to share is easy to make, its budget friendly (like most of the times), effective. Only downside is that it might make you cry, when it’s on your hair…!!

I am talking about onion juice.

What you need?

  • Onion
  • Grater

How to?

  • Peel off outer layer of onion.
  • Grate it.
  • Squeeze out onion juice.
  • Apply the juice using cotton ball.
  • Let it work for minimum 15 minutes.
  • Wash hair as usual.
  • You can mix it with other nourishing ingredients or oils too.

Why Onion Juice?

  • It helps hair growth.
  • Helps nourish hair follicles.
  • Minimise hair thinning and breakage.
  • Antioxidants help reverse premature graying and delay graying.
  • Keeps scalp healthy and free of infection.
  • When scalp is healthy, no dandruff.
  • Stimulates scalp and improves blood circulation.

Should I apply it only on scalp?

As it solves most of scalp issues, target area is scalp. No harm in using it along hair length. But best used on scalp.

Can I use it daily?

Yes you can. But, I personally don’t recommend it for daily usage. Let me tell you why. Onion juice has strong smell. You need to wash it thoroughly using shampoo. Using shampoo on hair, daily, is not something I recommend. So I personally like using the mask once or twice a week.

Can I leave it overnight?

Yes. But make sure you cover your hair properly or else you will end up making your bed and blankets smell of onion.

 

This Is My Experience With Hair Coloring

People give me compliments for my long hair. But, just like any other girl, I have my own hair issues and dissatisfaction. Huuh my only complaint is that they are thin. Since they are thin, I don’t really take the risk of getting a nice hair cut. Because thin and short hair ,can give a tough competition to a tail of a tiny animal.

So, just to add some fun to my hair style, I opted for a hair color an year ago. Which color?? Well, it was bright red. (Bright red for a hair color vi*gin, is a big deal) 😉

Now that my mind has fell in love with the color blue, coloring my hair blue is something which is on my mind. Before that, I want to share certain things which I experienced while I went through this hair coloring process. Which, people who got their hair colored, might or might not really share with you… 😊

Coloring is done on clean and damp hair:

You know how pricey a hair wash can be at some salons. If you want to save some money, wash your hair on or before the day you want to get your hair colored. Make sure its non greasy or non oily.

Make sure the brand of the color is a good one:

As you might already know, cheap colors can give you a major nightmare of hair issues. Hence, make sure that the color used is of good brand.

I had asked the guy at the salon, about the brand. Even though I had heard about it, to be safe, I googled it immediately.

The color you opt might or might not suit you:

It happens because of the excitement of getting your hair colored. That too, if it’s for the first time, ahh chances are way more.

The hair dressers usually show you the catalog or list of hair colors. You can choose the colors.

Here is the important tip. Some people at the salon do suggest which color would go with your complexion. But some may not and some just for the business purpose, suggest you some out of the world colors (yes it happened with one of my friends. Her head was looking like a butterfly with so many colors.)

So, you got to be very specific:

In my case, I had confusion with honey or brown color. But the hair dresser out there suggested me bright red which he thought would suit me the most. Out of excitement I said ok. Phewww once it was done, only person I remembered was – mummy…!!!

Color is too bright when it’s fresh:

Or may be the fact that you are not used to the new hair, it might take some time to get used to the color of your own hair.

Yelling from family and friends:

Haha even though there are plenty of people who would give you tons of compliments for the color of your hair, I’m pretty sure your family and friends have something else to say.

This solely depends on the type of people around you so I don’t comment much about it. I got good amount of scolding from mommy… 😂 No complaints. She loves her children’s hair. (Just like most of Indian moms).

It’s an amazing feeling:

No matter what people say, getting that fun factor added to your tresses makes it a good feeling. Something new, something fresh. A new look, a new you.

You got to use products which are specifically made for colored hair:

Yes, if you want to maintain the color for long, make sure you use the shampoo and conditioner which are meant to protect the color for long time.

I didn’t use those specific products. I did use normal ones. Let’s see what happened after that.

PS: I have seen people who used specific products to protect their hair. But they also went through almost same phases.

Hair fall:

No matter what color or brand you use, some hair types are not meant for chemicals. They just react and give us this nightmare called hair fall. I had faced this problem post hair coloring. I had to try out some homemade masks and stuff to keep it in control.

Hair turns into golden color:

Honestly, this fact I was totally unaware. No matter which color you opt for, the hair strands which you have colored, turns into a golden color at the end. 😒 Only thing to hide that is to color again. 😂

Rough hair:

At one point of time, the colored part of hair becomes so rough, it just reminds you of a dish wash brush.

Haha. Hence a good moisturizing hair mask or a good oil massage is something must for your hairs.

Duration of color on your hair depends solely on you:

Yes, it depends on your hair type and the care you are taking. Mine lasted for 7-8 months. Then it started fading. Right now, they look like I have applied henna on them.

Ya, this is pretty much about different phases post a hair coloring, according to me.

Have you colored your hair??? If yes, let me know about it. Color you chose and the experience of yours.

Tips to Take Care of Oily Scalp and Dry Hair Combination

Just like our facial skin types, our scalps are also proven to be of different types. Skin that secrets more natural oil is termed as oily skin. Same way, the scalp that produces more natural oil is termed as oily scalp.

I also have the oily scalp. Due to which, the scalp feels so oily just after couple of days of hair wash. The hair looks so flat. That’s when we call ‘a bad hair day’…!!!

There are multiple combinations of hair and scalp. It’s not mandatory that if you have oily scalp, the hair should be oily or smooth.

Yet times, girls even face the issues(read it as confusing hair issues), where their scalp is oily but they have really dry hair. Ahhh…!!! If they try to follow home remedies for dry hair, in order to restore moisture, they are going to end up making their scalp even more oilier and visa versa. In deed tricky. Isn’t it???

Well, I have some super easy handy tips to take care of this combination. If you also have oily scalp and dry hair, jump in…!!!

Mild shampoos are your friends in this mission:

Oil-Hair-Effectively-Before-Washing-Step-9.jpg

You will exactly understand the pain of taking head bath regularly(especially if you have long locks like mine), when you have oily scalp. When you fall into oily scalped category, you know you got to wash your hair frequently in order to make your hair look fresh and bouncy.

But it is not a good idea to wash hair frequently, if you have dry hair. Because every time you wash your hair, the natural oil is removed by the shampoo…!!!

In order to solve this tricky query, opt for a mild shampoo. Using which, the oily scalp is cleaned and the moisture of the hair is not sucked out.

Forget anything but not the conditioner:

hair-mask.jpg

Conditioner is a must, post washing your tresses. Why??? Shampoo absorbs the natural oil from hair. Conditioner on the other hand, provides moisture to hair. Hence your hair can say – bye bye dryness…!!!

Important point here is – do not apply conditioner to your scalp. Check the post about ‘How to wash your hair right’, for more info.

Hair masks ONLY for hair:

DIY-hair-masks.jpg

Hair is dry because it lacks moisture. In order to add moisture, you can use some amazing natural home made hair packs. Check this post for different recipes of hair masks you can try out.

When I say only for hair, you got to follow that strictly. As the scalp is already oily, you don’t want to clog it even more. Which results in hair fall.

So, you just have to apply hair pack on your hair strands, avoiding the scalp. You can use a clean towel, plastic or aluminum sheets to wrap your hair. Post half an hour so, you can wash your hair and scalp. Thus it adds moisture to your dry hair and without harming the scalp.

Exfoliation:

redhead.jpg

Just the way you treat dry hair with moisture, treat your oily scalp with little amount of exfoliation. Just like your face or body skin cells, scalp also need exfoliation to remove dead skin cells. Thus unclogging the pores, stimulating blood circulation and thus promoting hair growth.

There are multiple scalp exfoliators available in the market. If you want to prepare one at home, brown sugar, oatmeal, baking soda or coffee can be used as one. Mix any of these ingredients with oil and apply on scalp. Gently massage and wash scalp with luke warm water. This will help in improving scalp’s health without drying your hair.

Hot Oil Massage:

Hot-Oil-Massage.jpg

I just love hot oil massage for my hair. Especially when my mom gives me one. It’s so relaxing….!!!

Along with cooling your nerves, hot oil massage is good for your scalp and hair health. Even if the scalp is oily, it needs extra hydration. Which will be provided by a hot oil massage.

A good hot oil massage using oils like coconut oil, also helps in stimulating hair growth and keep the scalp and hair in a good condition.

Brush your hair daily:

Brushing-Hair.-Portrait-Of-Sexy-Young-Woman-Brushing-Straight-Natural-Hair-With-Comb.jpg

Brushing your hair stimulates hair growth. Umm we all know this. What we might not know is, brushing hair also helps in removing dirt from scalp. Plus, it helps in distributing natural oil produced, along the hair strand as we comb. Thus helps in keeping scalp less oily and hair less dry.
Know which type of comb suits your hair and needs, here.

Serum for rescue:

hair-serum.jpg

A live in serum is a must if you have dry hair. There are multiple hair serums available out there. This adds lost moisture to your hair. In turn it makes your hair look healthy, shiny and bouncy.

If you are looking for good hair serums, I would recommend these hair serums for you.

Love your natural hair texture:

Girls with straight hair wants curly hair, curly haired girls want straight. Some girls who already have straight hair wants poker straight hair(I am talking about me face palm).

But, flat/ curling irons, straighteners, blow dryers etc. are our frenemies. They do seems like our friends, making our hair goals come true. But, they are in deed ruining our hair’s health. Making the hair dull, dry and lifeless in the long run.

Minimise the usage of these styling tools as far as possible to take care of your hair.

These were the quick tips to take care of dry hair and oily scalp combo. I hope you find it useful. 😊

Dear reader, even though aloe vera is a great herb, it might or might not work for you. If you apply the gel directly to your skin you might get itching or allergies. Because some people are allergic to this gel.

Couple of Best Hair Serums for Dry Hair

Hey,

Many of my friends and colleagues have been asking about which hair serum do I use for my hair. So here is a quick reviews of couple of hair serum I have tried and which has luckily worked for me.

Hair serum is something like leave in conditioner. Due to weather, change in water or due to I’ll health, our hair tend to become rough and dry. Resulting in split ends and hair fall too. So, it’s a good idea to use hair serum to keep hair moisturized. Let’s see which are the best hair serum I have tried and my recommendations for my beautiful reader.

L’Oreal Paris Smooth Intense Hair Serum

When I had moved to Pune for the very first time, due to change in water my hair had turned dry. So this was the very first hair serum I had ever tried.

This non greasy serum Smells nice… A very mild fragrance. Travel friendly bottle makes it a good pick. What I really didn’t like much is the flip flop cover and dispenser. Flip flop cover is quite delicate. It breaks if you drop it. (Happened with me most of the time) It’s a normal hole dispenser. So yet times you might end up taking more quantity than required. Because if you apply more you might end up with greasy hair.

Best part is, it did solved the hair problems of mine. This Dis made my hair smooth, easy to manage. Plus the cost is quite less for the quantity we get. Little coin size amount of serum is more than enough to serve the purpose.

Price : 250 INR for 100 ml

You get it in local drug store as well as online.

The Body Shop Grape seed Glossing hair serum

I was a bit bored with the previous serum so tried this serum from one of my favorite brands. I’m glad I picked it. So this not Oily in texture. Has a mild smell of grapes. Little quantity goes long way.

The pump dispenser is the added plus point. You can take out as much quantity you want. It does helps your hair from getting dry and adds shine to it.

This serum falls on the expensive side. But it’s totally worth every penny.
