If you have been reading my blog for a while, you would know that I am on a continuous quest for natural and handmade products. People spend much more time curating them for you, and they are filed with so much love! Products that are natural are the best for your skin and hair – they might not show immediate results – but they help heal your skin. In the long run, your skin will be healthy and you will glow inside out.
I recently stumbled upon a brand called happy flowers on instagram, and I am thankful for the same! Their page looked very promising. It is owned by 2 sisters Dr Aanal and Dr Anjali Kangad who brew these skin and hair solutions. I got the Hair mask and the Charcoal Blackhead peel off mask from them.
Charcoal mask :
I was always in search of a good blackhead mask, but it seriously is a pain! Getting a steam facial in the parlor twice a month is not the solution for this. I have tried a number of face masks/sheet masks and none of them really seemed to treat this problem, which is why I was looking forward to this mask, by Happy flowers. This can be used for the entire face, but for me, my blackheads were the target.
How to apply?
Wash your face with a mild cleanser, and then apply a thin layer of this mask on the areas with blackheads/whiteheads. Some people might prefer to use this on the entire face, but honestly I would just apply it to the specific areas to avoid pain as well as to see if this gives you the desired results. Let it stay till it hardens (about 25-30 minutes) and then gently peel it off. Check this quick video on their page about how to use it!
How did it fare?
So I cleansed my face and then applied this on my nose. Left it for around 30 minutes. I was apprehensive that it would pain, but to my surprise, it did not.
- I did see some blackheads come out with the first use.
- Easy to use.
- One tub would last for quite some time.
- The fragrance was a little weird.
- The blackheads deep within, still seemed to be there.
Hair mask :
From the past few months, I have tried to maintain a natural hair care routine, without dumping chemicals on my hair. I have used pure oils, natural shampoo’s, skipped conditioners most of the time (none of them really suit me) and then apply pure argan oil as a leave on serum. Dry hair has been one of my concerns, since I don’t apply any of the high end chemical laden conditioners that add instant shine to the hair. My go to hair mask was to whip together curd and lemon or curd and honey and leave it on for an hour before washing my hair. So again a natural hair mask was a great option for me to explore on.
How to apply?
After washing your hair with a shampoo, squeeze all the excess water from your hair and then apply this mask on your hair. I usually avoid using any of the store bought masks to my scalp, since it is extremely sensitive! Let it stay for a good 5-7 minutes and then rinse off.
How did it fare?
This did moisturize my hair, and more to it, is that it the no chemicals part. The smell was mild.
- Hair mask without having to spend a lot of time
- Chemical free
- Visible results!
- A suggestion is that the fragrance could be better
Here’s the instagram link to their page, do DM them for their product list, go ahead and find the products that you would need and show them some love! 🙂
