Here we are again with the second part of 2016 the best of the best DIY and product of mygreenagenda.

In 2016  I experimented a lot with DIY hair treatments. Ayurvedic Herbs has been THE discovery of the year for me (I wrote a whole post on their benefits here), the constant use of pre-poo Ayurvedic herb masks has been crucial to cure my oily hair and strengthening my locks. My all time favourite remain Amla, Shikakai and Cassia  (in breaf, this herbs make your hair thicker, healtier, shiner ) mixed with plain yogurt and honey for ensure a good amounth of moisture and, of course, some hot water to obtein a nice smooth consistency. A little extra trick for blonde gals (or aspiring blonde, like me) add 1/2 of teaspoon of turmeric/rhuburb/camomille to enhance blonde hues.

Again in the hair-care realm in 2016 I switched to sulfate free shampoo. Shampoo bars has been the hit of 2016 in terms of gentle & nourishing hair detersion. DiY shampoo bars remain my favourites (recipe here) since they are a little more clarifying  while soap/shampoo bars are perfect when my hair are stressed and on the dry side (have a look at this post).

The oscar for best conditioner of the year goes without doubt to Biofficina Toscana Active Concentrate Conditioner. It is 100% natural and organic product packed with moisturizing ingredients and my well-loved  Behenamidopropyl Dimethylamine a natural detangler and moisturizer ingredient (I raved about this in one of my early post on this blog, read here)

Face masks were a constant night-time treat to fix my skin from blemishes, dry and tired skin having a bit of SPA moment at home. Clays, yogurt and 2-3 drops of vegetable oil (try argan, avocado, jojoba...)are the basic ingredients to ensure amazing results. Definitely face mask are the key for smooth and youthful complexionimg_20160614_201002.jpg

The skin-care and beauty recap of 2016 is accomplished. 2016 has really marked a significant milestone on my journey towards green and sustainable beauty ...and what about you?!
