Look after your curls with coconut oil
It can be bad enough trying to force a hairbrush through dry, snagged hair at the best of times, but the problem can get even worse in the colder weather when curly hair tends to go flyaway after it encounters central heating.
However, using organic coconut oil to rehydrate your locks will help to tame wild curls and get them looking smooth and chic.
Is your hair prone to heat damage?
Writing in an article for the Guardian, Anita Bhagwandas explained that some types of hair are more prone to heat damage than others.
Celebrity hairdresser Paul Edmonds told her:
"We know the main causes of damaged hair are over using hot styling tools, over-brushing, sun damage and over highlighting. But different types of hair are more prone to damage than others. Afro hair, before it’s even processed, is more susceptible to damage because the hair shaft is a flat elliptical shape, which is responsible for the tight curls, meaning more opportunities for breakage.
"When you add relaxing or weaves into the equation, they can pull and damage hair if they’re done too tight or left in for too long. Make sure you go to the best person you can afford for this very reason"
People with Indian hair generally have the best hair type, the hairstylist went on, but the barnet can still be stripped of its moisture by bleaching, colouring or through over-use of henna.
However, he assured that a dry hair treatment in the form of a deep conditioner used several times a week can help restore your crowning glory to its glossy best.
The key is regularity, though, so individuals need to get into the mindset of looking after their locks whenever they reach for the shampoo.
"I wish I’d had this revelation sooner; now after a month of intense conditioning, mine is saying three Hail Mary’s. I honestly can’t blame it," added Ms Bhagwandas.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
