Often times I come across products that may have received great reviews online but the same product doesn't really do much for others,hence the one star,two star ratings that come with the product review,Be it skin products,hair products,whatever, and then you get the ones that are so-so which are just averagely rated.
In My last post below ,i did mention that regardless of race ,various hair types often react differently to different types of products,Well, i guess we can say the same for everything else - skin type ,weather conditions ,climate area e.t.c.With this in mind its best to find ways to make products work for you in order to get a considerably better result before we go on to hang the manufacturers of these products.... (just kidding)...
So below are some tips on certain everyday products and techniques one can adopt in getting better results.
Whether its moisturising oils for the skin or for the hair the best way to apply this First of all to the skin, is by making sure your skin is reasonably wet,meaning it has to be applied the moment you step out of the shower.Reasons being that the water on the skin helps the skin absorb the oil faster and much better with out leaving a residue. The same applies to the hair except here the hair has to be a little bit damp before sealing with the oil.
When applying oils to the skin ,it's best to start with a thin layer and gradually spread it all over the skin ,thick layers of oils in a particular spot limits absorption and saturates the tissues.
