I spent a week applying frozen aloe to my face every morning and loved the results. I followed the instructions of beauty influencer Jaclyn Hill to make aloe vera ice using fresh aloe vera leaves, water, a blender, and an ice cube mold. Although making frozen aloe vera and applying it to my face felt extremely expensive, I fell in love with it. It keeps me awake and makes my skin look dewy and radiant.
2. Bowl method for bouncy curls
@curlyzia.xo I still receive messages from people every day saying how much this has helped. Made me laugh so much 😍🙌🏼 #ziasbowlmethod #bowlmethod #curlclumps Home – Edith Whiskers
Our former editorial intern Jihan Basyah experimented with the bowl method, which involves applying your conditioner or curling cream to your hair and dipping each section of hair into a bowl of water. When dipping, you must rub each portion individually and let the water run back into the bowl. While Basyah finds the process too complicated for her on a daily basis, she says the results are astounding. She wrote: “Finally, my curls looked so bouncy and defined that I felt like my hair had just come out of the salon. “My hair is completely frizz-free, with S-shaped curls and after blow-drying, it feels super light. More importantly, my hair isn’t as brittle as it should be when I rub it in a bowl without using the product. .”

I had a few cracks in my nails, but after sliding them on barely noticeable and blends in with the rest of my nails.”

To help control her often-oily scalp, collaborator Melanie Rud tried a split-wash, or sectional wash, instead of washing them all in one go. Rud writes: “After showering, my hair is definitely much easier to comb than usual, no detangling spray needed. “And while the process didn’t make it last longer than usual (by the next day, my scalp was back to its normal oily level), it did leave my hair feeling cleaner at first. Because this process takes a little longer than a regular shampoo, I’m not sure it’s something I would do every day, but next time I feel a lot of residue on my scalp or I’m taking a “clean” shower. “—you know, the way you exfoliate, shave, mask—wash split ends will definitely be on the notebook.”

Reverse shampooing involves conditioning the hair first and washing it immediately afterwards. It is especially useful for thin hair that feels heavy after conditioning.
