I actually don’t know if I have ever shown you my natural curls on blog. It is actually a really long time since I have emphasized them, so when I went to the I.C.O.N. event at N0. 1 Copenhagen it was fun to see all my curls again. My hair was washed in the India series, which has Moringa and Argan oils in them, that are good for dry and damaged hair. Afterwards they used the Curl Cream, which in addition to the oils, also contains Quinoa and sunflower seed extract that prevents damage, and emphasizes the natural curls. With a diffuser, my hair was blow dried and wow all my curls came out! They have a little old school Whitney vibe about them . It will be my new summer hair, a maxi dress and a tropical drink, yes! It was a lovely evening with the entire Danish I.C.O.N. crew.
I like to take vitamins and supplements and I’ve just begun with these from Vitaviva. I have for many years taken a multivitamin + extra vitamin D and fish oil. Right now I have replaced my usual fish oil, with Krill Oil.
Krill Oil are a type of shrimp-like marine invertebrates. The oil derived from Krill is rich in Phospholipids, the building blocks for cell membranes, and Essential Fatty Acids including Omega-3, 6 and 9. Krill Oil is very stable, free of heavy metal content and considered more efficient in the body than regular fish oil capsules. Phospholipids are fats that keep our cells working by forming a protective membrane around each cell to block out toxins and disease forming free radicals. The fats in Krill Oil resemble the Phospholipids found in the brain, which maintain the brain chemical that controls the memory, sleep patterns, muscle function, mood and organs like the heart.
Juice Complex is a mix of different types of berries, such as Acai Berry, Pomegranate and Goji Berry. The selected berries are all rich in Vitamin C and Vitamin E, and also contain significant amounts of Calcium, Magnesium, and Folic Acid. Juice Complex offers high levels of Antioxidants, which can help prevent the proliferation of disease-causing cells. The selected berries of use have also been shown to reduce levels of bad cholesterol, thus promoting good heart health, and their high levels of Lutein have been linked to improved vision.
I take two of each with my breakfast and I feel so ready for summer! Do you take some supplements or vitamins?
I always have at least two lip balms in my bag. The delicate purple eos pomade, smells of passion fruit and is packed with shea butter, vitamin E and jojoba oil. REN Skin Care also makes some great products, and when I have been out traveling, I often take small samples with me. This “Keep Young and Beautiful – Instant Firming Beauty Shot” I use after a flight, so I boost the skin with extra moisture.
Swedish Maria Nila has some delicious news! True Soft aragan oli and Hair Lotion. The oil is light weight and I use it, either in damp hair or my hair ends, to get that final shine. The hair lotion can also be used in wet or dry hair. I like to hug it in my curls when I have styled them with my curling wand. And all Maria Nila’s products are vegan friendly and produced in Sweden.
To be pampered with mini sandwiches and hairstyling is not the worst to do, on an ordinary Thursday. Moroccanoil is launching a new series called Smooth Collection, which is good for curly and frizzy hair.It just happens to be that kind of hair that I have, so I have been looking forward to trying the new series.
I love Moroccanoil’s fragrance and the smooth series contains – of course – argan oil and also argan butter and coconut. The shampoo and conditioner makes my hair soft and the Smoothing Lotion, I put in my damp hair before I style it. Overall my hair feels less frizzy and although, all the products contains argan oil, it dosen’t weigh my hair down og makes it oily.
