Hello my lovelies! This shall be a very quick post in the midst of revision times, I'm sorry to say! Last night my friends and I went out to celebrate the end of Stephie's dissertation with a few cocktails (if you're in the Canterbury area, I recommend Alberrys because it is fab!) and I wore my Matalan dress from a few weeks ago, with a shrug from Dorothy Perkins to keep me warm (and hide ye olde upper arms too).
I also want to bring you another cheap and pampering recommendation for those stressful times when your hair and skin are acting up - and yes, it's another Superdrug own brand product! My hair's been incredibly dry and frizzy of late, with a tendency to tangle within seconds of brushing it, and not even my Charles Worthington conditioner's been able to help. So I turned to a product I've heard lots of good things about: coconut oil.
First things first, it's solid, so you have to warm it up in your hands before application. Secondly, although the tub says it's a skin product, you can use it as a leave-in conditioner (less really is more!!! Beware!) or as a hair masque. I chose to trial the latter, covered my hair in it (it didn't take a lot of product) and left it overnight. In the morning I looked as though I'd bathed in chip fat, but after washing my hair I was taken aback by how smooth and silky it felt!
Two washes on it's still a lot softer than it was before and easier to manage, and it had the same effect on my friend's hair, and her hair type is very different to mine.
The best thing though? The price. This retails for £1.99 in Superdrug.
So if you're after a cheap pampering fix, I'd recommend coconut oil with bells on!
