Big: Sea Salt Shampoo. I recently went into my Local Lush store and asked for a sample of Big. Because my hair is quite flat and boring. I fell in love instantly the smell is like a sea breeze, or well everything you want the sea to smell like. its fresh and uplifting and utterly perfect for my hair. It doesn’t just add volume it adds shine. But my favourite thing is that it utterly cleanses my hair making it beautiful. I’m blonde with fine hair, it lifts my hair and I think makes my hair brighter. I don’t wash my hair every day so this is perfect for when I want to wash my hair because it can cope without being washed. But if you do, I would use this maybe twice a week and add Seanik into your routine. I also use a light conditioner, because it’s salt it can be a little drying on the ends. The main ingredients are; Sea Salt, Lemon and Lime, Toothed Wrack Seaweed and Sea Water. The salt I find adds to the wonder of this shampoo, I love the feeling of it and the lather the shampoo creates. The salt lightly exfoliates the scalp also. It’s just so Fresh! So I got a big tub.

How It’s Made: Big Shampoo

anonymous asked:

How do you take care of your cuticles so well? I've kind of ignored my entire nail area and after looking at how beautiful yours are I realized how non-beautiful mine are.

My cuticle care routine is always evolving, but here are the basics:

1. Similar to my nail care regimen, the number one thing I do is a lot of moisturizing.  This is especially important if, like me, you have to wash your hands a lot for work, or if you live in a cold or dry climate.  I love this magical nail oil, which I brush all over my nails and cuticles after using polish remover.  I also like Burt’s Bees Lemon Cuticle Butter, LUSH Lemony Flutter, and Aquaphor.

2. I use Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover.  Contrary to what you might think, this does not instantly remove my cuticles– rather it softens them, making them easier to push down with an orange wood stick.  When I use it regularly over time, it does dissolve the dead and dried-out part of the cuticle.

3. I use cuticle nippers very sparingly, mostly to trim torn or cracked cuticles to prevent them from tearing.

And of course, none of this is, like, necessary.  Your hands don’t have to be meticulously groomed, and I hope nobody looks at my nail pictures and starts to feel bad about how their hands look.  I pay a lot of attention to my cuticles because a) it’s part of my hobby and b) I regularly post very close-up pictures of my nails on the internet for a not-insignificant audience.
