5 Basic Hair Products/Tools that you need !

I used to consider myself a pretty low maintenance person when it came to haircare, well, in comparison to makeup I guess I still am. Recently I have noticed that there are some products that I just cannot do without and in my opinion are some basic haircare products/tools that everyone should own.


Hair Oil
There was a time when I was scared to use hair oil or serums as my hair tends to get oily too soon but once I started using them my hair game changed completely. I love hair oils and use them as a leave in conditioner when my hair is damp. They act as a detangler, treatment and shine treatment and leave your hair feeling soft, smooth and feeling nourished. A hair oil that I have been trying and loving is Bhave Riot Control Oil*, it contains organic Argan oil and Vitamin E. I love the subtle smell it has and it makes my hair frizz free, smooth and shiny. I also love that it is free from parabens, sulphates and sodium chloride and so is better for my hair. I focus this on the ends of my hair.

The Winter Polish #2

I don't always stick to specific color choices in beauty seasonally but these days I have been leaning towards some specific shades for my manicure. So in today's post I am sharing with you the colors that I have been getting the most use of this winter. Check out my previous Winter Polish Edition HERE


Clockwise:

Shimmery
I have been loving shimmery nails recently, in particular, this gorgeous shade from Loreal called Mysterious Icon. Its a beautiful shimmery taupe brown and looks stunning on its own or paired with another polish. While we are on this mani, I must tell you I absolutely adore the shade Scarlet Vamp and love both these polishes together. I gave it away and don't have it anymore but if your love maroons, definitely check it out. Original mani post HERE
 
Navy
I love blue nail polishes and love wearing a beautiful navy in winter. My recent favorite has been "For Sure, Yes !"* from Faby. I love the shade and the formula and love wearing it on my toes too. 

Chocolate Brown
I am not much a brown nail polish wearer but recently I tried Sally Hansen nail polish in Spice Age* and surprisingly love how it looks on me. This is definitely one shade I do not see me wearing in summer. Original mani post HERE

True Nars Lip Pencil Set is a limited edition set from NARS and is available at Mecca Cosmetica and Mecca Maxima or from their website. This set consists of two satin lip pencils and a velvet matte lip pencil. The colors included are Luxembourg (Satin), Yu (Satin) and Provocative Red (Velvet Matte). Luxembourg and Yu are a part of the permanent range while Provocative Red is a a limited edition shade. The pencils have 2.2 gms of product each.
