First it was L’oreal (nothing special) and then it was Maybelline great lash (overrated!!), then it was YSL (loved but way too clumpy)…so I decided to try Lancome (loved loved loved but got bored after a year) then I decided to go back to L’oreal (I was right the first time around) and THEN I found the ONE! Clinique high impact curling mascara! (you fulfilled my every lashes needs) curls amazingly, super long thick lashes and made me look like I’m wearing fake eyelashes.

I always buy brown shade mascaras as it looks more natural and matches my skin and hair tone. The only thing I would complain about this mascara, is that its a bit hard to take off but other than that its perfect! A product definitely recommended by ME! ♥♥♥

Finally I have found an amazing shampoo that prevents your hair from falling easily and makes your hair stronger!  If you run your hand through or brush your hair  and find lots of hair falling out then this shampoo is the solution! Plus it gave my hair an amazing shine and I definitely recommend it for men also! (I really wish men would take control of looking after their hair and skin as they neglect this the most, looking after yourself doesn’t make you any less macho!)

The Klorane shampoo with Quinine and B-vitamins is perfect for thinning and fine hair. The vitamin B complex (comprised of B5, B6, & B8) reinforce hair structure and stimulate growth and the quinine stimulates the activity of the hair bulb to revitalise the hair from the roots.The only downside of the shampoo is the smell, it smells like men shampoo but that didn’t put me off and it really doesn’t smell like it on your hair I promise especially if you put conditioner afterwards.

I found this shampoo at Mazen’s pharmacy Mazraa for 15 alef , they also sell them in most pharmacies and in Boots (UK and UAE).

Combined with multi vitamins or omega 3 vitamins and eating spinach, avocados, raw nuts such as walnuts (omega-3 fatty acid that helps condition your hair), brazil nuts (best sources of selenium, an important mineral for the health of your scalp) and almonds/cashews/pecans (a great source of Zinc, a zinc deficiency can lead to hair shredding) can give you stronger healthy hair! Go nuts!

I always add walnuts into feta cheese sandwiches or if I’m in the office i will order chicken avocado sandwich on multi cereal bread. Avocado is great for nourishing the hair and without protein one can experience weak brittle hair, so make sure to include a lot of lean turkey and chicken fish into your eating regime.
