Product Review Simple image

I don’t use shower gels on my face, I prefer to use a bar of soap for my face and shower gel for my body. In my search for natural skincare products, I stumbled upon this Simple Refreshing Shower Gel. Check out my pros and cons below –

PROS
  1. This shower gel is gentle on the skin. It works great on my sensitive skin.
  2. It contains no soap, which is great.
  3. I like that there are no artificial ingredients or harsh chemicals in this shower gel.
  4. There are no animal-derived ingredients in this product.
  5. It has not been tested on animals.
  6. A little goes a long way with this shower gel. I only need a dash for my whole body. It lathers really well.
  7. I like that this shower gel leaves the skin clean, soft, and smooth
  8. It is quite affordable. You can shop for this product on Amazon via the link below.
CONS
  1. I am not a huge fan of the cucumber fragrance. It is a light scent so not too overpowering but I prefer other natural fragrances. My shower gel needs to have a fragrance I like. It adds to my overall bathing experience, so I may not be using this shower gel until they come in other fragrances.

How to wash your hair properly

*Affiliate links.

It took me many years to realise I have been washing my hair all wrong. We tend to pay more attention to our skin than our hair for some weird reason. We spend time cleaning, toning and moisturising our face. On some days, we even use a face mask. However, when it comes to hair wash days, many of us spend a couple of minutes and we are done. I only recently started washing my hair properly, and I can see the difference already with the way my hair looks.

How to wash your hair properly

So how do you wash your hair properly? You need time and the right products and technique to get your hair clean and moisturised. It is going to take more than 2 minutes in the shower to achieve this. So if you have been washing your hair wrong all these years, these easy to follow steps may come in handy –

 

Use your shampoo sparingly

You don’t need a lot of shampoo to get your hair clean. A little goes a long way. The key is to ensure you massage the shampoo into your hair for about 5 minutes. That way the shampoo sinks into the hair and all the goodness is soaked it.

 

Rinse and rinse again

Once you have massaged the shampoo into the hair, you need to rinse and rinse again to ensure all traces of the shampoo are out of your hair. You should rinse your hair more than you think is required, that way you will be sure there is no trace of shampoo left in your hair and the hair feels like wet hair with no products in.

 

Use warm water

Make sure the water you are using is the right temperature. Warm water is the best for washing your hair. Cold water tangles the hair and hot water will strip the hair off all the moisture.

 

Use the conditioner correctly

You should ensure your read the label on the conditioner and follow the instructions on how to use it. You should leave your conditioner in for the time required.

 

Use the right products

I use SheaMoisture shampoo and conditioner and I have done so since I went natural. There is a range for everyone, so do try the different ranges until you find the right one for your hair type. Here are a few ideas here –
