Oil pulling may be a health craze right now but the practice actually goes back years and years.
This Ayurvedic natural remedy involves the use of natural oils (coconut, sesame) to pull toxins out of your mouth by helping to produce fresher breath, healthy gums and whiter teeth (and who doesn’t want whiter teeth, right?).
Oil pulling can also improve the appearance of your skin as it detoxifies the body. Overall, the advantages of this ancient practice are endless.
When I first heard about oil pulling, I will admit I was skeptical. Nonetheless, I decided to give it a try for two weeks. Not only did my teeth get whiter but the oil also helped relieve morning headaches and increased my energy.
Now that you know what oil pulling is and what its benefits are, it is time for you to try it for yourself.
Blake Lively has one of the most enviable manes in Tinseltown and now she’s sharing her hair care secrets.
Mrs. Reynolds sat down with Hello Magazine via Daily Mail where she revealed why she loves to wear her hair down, “Honestly I am a shy person and my hair is a safety net for me, so I love to have it down and full and relaxed.”
“Often you see people on the red carpet with tight up-dos, but that makes me feel stiff,” she added.
Blake also shared tips on how she cares for her hair, her favourite hair mask is the Kerastase Reflection Chroma Captive Hair Masque and she also uses extra virgin coconut oil on the ends before shampooing.
Blake says that once she applies the hair mask she doesn’t rinse it completely from the ends, she then blow dries her hair until it feels slightly damp and then puts it in a ballerina bun to completely dry.
So now we can all have perfect hair days like Blake!
