Some old Moroccan beauty secrets

Today I wanna talk about an old Moroccan beauty secret, Henna you all know it but rare are the ones who know the best way to using it.
Henna as commonly known is used for the tatoo as you can see in the picture above looks great and you dont have to live with it for the rest of your life or spends thousands to get it removed. An other common way is for hair but few know that henna is a great body wrap yes it gives your skin a great glow and also diminishes the pinples and blackheads and all impurities from your body.
Steps to doing so:
1- Exfoliate your body I would recomend the Moroccan exfoliation techniques, if you dont know how to do so I will be happy to tell you the exact method.
2- get the white henna which you can find at any middle eastern store just ask for the light colored henna that doesnt dye your skin, any pure henna will not dye your skin fast so you get a light bronze glow without the bright orange stain
3- mix the henna with lemon juice only use fresh lemon juice to mix the henna then add some water to make it thin
4- apply to your entire body and wait about 10 minutes this will give you a thingling sensation but dont worry it's just the henna and the lemon doing their trick
5- rince your body with luke warm water and enjoy the soft clear skin all over.

Hair growth fast and easy organic home remedy

When we look at all the products out there for hair growth we get overwhelmed with all the choices and the promises but rare are the products who actually deliver.
I have been trying to grow my hair and tried everything out there from cheap over the counter products to expensive ones with no true results, until my mother convinced me to use her mixture, I just did not wanna try any stinky homemade goo but had no choice I tried everything and had no results so why not give mom's brand a try.
After only 1 month of using it I could see my roots growing like weed I was amazed and decided I have to share this.
Ok the recipe is simple but the results may vary.
garlic water: grind garlic and put it in a cheese cloth and squeeze the water out of it then mix it with as much nescafe as possible so the garlic water will disolve the instant coffee. add some olive oil caster oil almond oil hemp seed oil and some vitamin E oil, a drop of honey and put the mixture in a small bottle and let it marinate for at least 48 hours.
How to use: there is 2 ways you can use this I was using it both ways since I only shampooed my hair once or twice a week I would put it on my scalp for as long as possible before I shampoo and that meant at least 4 hours sometimes I will leave it overnight.
The second way is to make the hair mask which I did in the middle of the week. take a tea spoon of the oil mixture add some olive oil to it and blend it with an egg yolk to make a hair mayo then add an avocado or a banana to the mixute, that was my favorite hair mask that I have been using for almost 6 months now since my last visit to morocco.
There is one advice I would like to add. when you are using a treatment for your hair try to stick to it and dont change it every single week or every single month. Do the same thing for at least 4 to 6 months until you can see real results then if you want you can change your recipe, although I have been adding coconut oil to my hair mask every once in a while. Good luck and please leave me a comment if you need any more recipes or if you have any questions about these recipes.

Argan Moroccan Oil facts

I have heard so many hypes about the moroccan oil and how great it is being moroccan myself I know for a fact that the moroccan oils sold here have almost no real argan oil in them, also moroccan people use argan oil in their food and sometimes as a beauty enhancement.
Now let's speak about what Argan is really used for:
1- wrinkle mask: yes argan oil mixed with papaya is the best wrinkle reduction remedy it works almost instantly and the more you use it the better results you get
2- pure Argan oil mixed with coffee garlic water egg yolk and olive oil makes your hair grow longer stronger faster and gives it a healthy look and a lasting shine,
3- Argan oil tastes so good, it's the most expensive oil in morocco and people love adding it to local dishes or just dipping bread in it, but the best recipe for Argan oil is what it commonly known in morocco as the Amlo which is almond butter mixed with argan oil
But there is also a lot of other products that people make from the argan seeds such as soap and exfoliating creams over all Argan is a great source of nutrition no matter what it is used for, hair skin and body but the common mistake is people think that the more expensive the product containing the oil the better it is which is wrong. You can get pure Argan oil for the fraction of the price and use it in many different ways.
If you need any more info about how to get the argan oil or the products made of the argan seeds leave me a comment and I will be glad to tell you about some local stores in your area that might carry it.
