Hello #beautiful #souls❤️🌹🌺 I love to not use shoes most of the time. I love to dress up and be glamorous too but being able to point and flex them throughout the day is a great feeling. My friend @rmotioncoach mentions this on his page. He is working with someone to correct his imbalances and he started with toe spreaders which I love to use as well. I highly recommend them and use castor oil to massage them daily. Your feet are your anchor to earth. Not only physically but as someone who loves nature I find it heals and grounds my spirit.

Though she stopped acting ages ago, she still rules the hearts of her fans. Bhagyashree’s new series, Tuesday Tips is all about skincare and haircare routines that she swears by. Recently, Bhagyashree shared the recipe of her favourite hair mask, 2-ingredient hair care pack.

Moreover, she added, “I had so many of you asking me about hair care so first let me tell you that the most important factor is the food you eat, cause health begins from inside. Vit A, biotin and your Omegas are important in maintaining your hair and skin. But along with that when we are constantly torturing our hair with heat and chemicals when we blowdrying, style and/or color our hair, it is also essential that you nourish and pamper it (sic).”

Check it out as it’s a super simple hair mask recipe:

Things Required:

 

  • 1 Small Bowl Methi Seeds
  • 1 cup Coconut Milk

Preparing Coconut Milk At Home

womenhealth

If you don’t wish to buy coconut milk from the market then you can make it easily at home. Just take a fresh coconut and start grating it. Squeeze the grated coconut using a muslin cloth and store all the milk in a bowl. Add this milk to a pan and let it cook for 5 minutes. Let it cool and then freeze it. The next morning, coconut milk is ready!

Directions:

  • Soak methi seeds or fenugreek seeds in water overnight.
  • The next morning, in a blender, add methi seeds and coconut milk.
  • Blend to make a thick paste.
  • Part your hair into sections and start applying the paste all over your hair roots to the ends. Keep it for 40 minutes to 1 hour and then wash off with a mild shampoo.
  • This hair pack works as a conditioner and you don’t need to follow the shampoo with your regular conditioner after using this hair pack.

Benefits

Lauric acid in coconut milk strengthens the hair follicle and reduces the hair loss problem as it is also one of the best conditioners. Methi is rich in nicotinic acid which too is beneficial against hair fall. It contains lecithin which hydrates each strand of the hair and brings back the lustre and bounce.
