Sweet Almond Oil

image

The almond is a species of tree native to the Middle East and South Asia. Sweet almond oil is obtained from the dried kernel of sweet almonds.

Almonds are a rich source of oil, the highest component being monounsaturated (oleic acid,an omega-9 fatty acid), linoleic acid (a polyunsaturated omega-6 essential fatty acid), and some saturated fatty acid.

The sweet almond oil has a slight odour and a nutty taste.

💫BENEFITS FOR HAIR

✨It is a great sealant for all that good moisture for your hair.

✨Due to it’s high content of saturated and mono unsaturated fats, it penetrates the hair shaft pretty well and will act as a good moisturiser (not as good as EVCO or EVOO, though)

✨Contains Vitamins A, B and E as well as omega fatty acids that promote hair growth and prevent breakage.

✨Adds shine to hair and really does give it a silky feel.

✨It’s also a good heat protector so apply it to your hair before heat application to prevent heat damage.

💫BENEFITS FOR THE SKIN

✨Sweet Almond Oil is a good emollient, and can be used to lubricate the skin during a massage session.

✨It removes dirt and dead skin while moisturizing your skin. This makes it ideal for makeup removal and a great oil for your sugar or salt face scrub.
You can use it for chapped lips, too.

✨It prevents and relieves sunburn.

✨Reduces dark circles under the eyes. For best results apply the oil before going to bed and allow it to work while you sleep. Do this for a couple of weeks and you’ll be sure to notice a difference.

Beautiful Textures Wash and Go.

10 years later, I’m finally getting around to doing a review on the Beautiful Textures Curl Control Defining Pudding and Moisture Butter Whipped Curl Cream. I’ve been using both products for a while and I love the curl definition they give me. They’re also great for me because I have about three different hair textures, which is always a pain to style uniformly.

I’m extremely lazy about my hair so I love the simplicity of a wash and go. To begin I washed my hair with the As I am coconut co wash and detangled my hair with a wide tooth comb. Then I combined equal parts of both products and applied to my hair while it was still dripping wet. I tried parting it, then got tired halfway through so I styled it, pulling the hair towards the direction I wanted it to lie. I put my head under the shower and then shook my head to separate the curls.

Since I was in a rush, I went to a nearby salon and sat under the dryer for 10 minutes and I was on my way. Quick and easy.  I love the curls and they come without the crunchiness gel leaves. Plus it takes me back to the good old TWA days. The style lasted me a week. All I did was spritz it with my mix of water, jojoba oil and leave in conditioner, shake the curls out and it was as good to go.
