As Free as my Hair | How to tame it

27 Jun

My hair just can’t be tamed! During winter, summer, spring or whatever… In any occasion, I look like I just came out of the jungle and was attacked by several wild animals. It’s lame!

To solve my problem I have a new product that promises to, not just tame my freaky hair, but to protect it from damage caused by sun, wind, pollution and from comments like: “did you brush your hair today?” or “What happen to your hair?” or “Was it raining in the morning?” or “You know what you should use? Hair spray!”.

I’m gonna start using this product now and, hopefully, in a month I can look like a normal person, instead of a member of some remote Indian tribe.

Stay tuned! I’ll talk about the results in a few weeks.

During that time I would love to hear about any hair product that WORKED for you (in case you HAD the same problem) or if you already used this one.

If you want to complain about your undisciplined hair – Be my guest! Unlike Rihanna, I don’t like to feel like “I’m the only girl in the world”.

IDEA FOR A BEAUTY BRAND: If you want to release a new product which main objective is to tame wild shapeless hair – name it LEASH. Cause it’s exactly what my hair needs and I would totally buy it by that suggestive name! :p

Old Oil into Candles

27 Apr

The first time that I heard about this new product I was thrilled. I’m that kind of person that freaks out when the cooking oil is overused and has to go to the garbage.  I read once, that one drop of cooking oil pollutes the same water as a human being pollutes is all life. 1 DROP!!! (I’m aware that this is exaggerated, but it scares huh?)

Did you know that just 1 liter of wasted cooking oil can contaminate 1 million liters of water?!

So you gotta love this machine! Oon Home Recycling Solutions is a Lisbon-based company that develops innovative green products.

Oon Candlemaker transforms old cooking oil into fragrant decorative candles! How awesome is this?

You are not just saving the planet by polluting less (reducing), but you’re also recycling and reutilizing oil as candles. And the best part is: The candles have fragrance!

For me this is one of the most (if not the most) creative sustainable gadget of all time!

Fragrances:

  • spicy orange
  • cozy jasmine
  • blueberry smoothie
  • sea lemons
  • handpicked apples
  • sweet coffee cream
  • naked soul (whatever that is)

The Oon Candlemaker is a great product and has an astonishing design. It only costs 199€ and it comes with seven pods (that neutralize the oil smell, and provide color and fragrance to the candles). Check how it works on their website.
