Lightening hair naturally (cinnamon)

So this is a pretty easy recipe to do at home. I will warn you that it might get messy. The effect it will produce is 2-3 shades lighter than what you began with. This recipe is all natural and so it can be used as many times as you want so that you can get the shade that you want.

What you will need.

3-4 Tablespoons of Cinnamon powder
1 Cup of Conditioner
1/3 Cup of Honey

Towel
Shower cap/plastic bag
Wide tooth comb
Wooden or Plastic spoon

Optional:

Gloves

Process:

Wash your hair like you normally do with your shampoo.
Let it dry a bit, when it feels just a little damp, take your comb and brush it out.

At this point mix conditioner, cinnamon powder and honey together to get a thick brown paste. Use a wooden or plastic spoon and a glass bowl (metal cutlery can react differently with the ingredients.)
Now, split hair into sections and apply the paste evenly making sure it doesn’t get onto your face (cinnamon makes skin red and sometimes can cause and allergic reaction on the spot.) I don’t recommend rubbing into your scalp either just apply gently.
Once you finish that put on your shower cap or plastic bag and then your towel.

Leave the towel on for 30 minutes so that the hair can get all nice and warm. Don’t worry if it feels hot and itchy at that point that is just the formula working.

After 30 minutes you can remove the towel but keep shower cap or plastic bag on. It will take another 3-4 hours to work, the longer you leave it on the more interesting the result.

Once you remove the cap wash your hair out well, you can use a bit of shampoo if you need to but there is no need for it as the conditioner should be enough.

Generation of Books

I have had a few people, asking me why I spend my time reading books. As they said to me, and I shall paraphrase this:

‘they give you nothing, are boring and just a whole lot of a wasted time’ …at that point I had to turn away and calmly walk away from the person, why? well that is really simple, you can’t discuss or argue with someone who is illiterate. They simply won’t understand what you are trying to say and will irritate you with, their non-exsistant ‘Logic.’ I bring this topic up because it is close to my heart. Today I was reading an article on ‘modern young adults’  and I remembered a quote by ‘Abbas El Akkad’ who, was an Egyptian writer he died in 1964 and wrote over 100 books.

He writes, and I quote:

“…I do not read for I have renounced life,
I read because one life is just not enough for me…”

I think that it is a wonderful quote. Only one sentence long. But with such great meaning behind it.

Humans are a curious species.
We learn and grow, we record things for future generations, create stories of other, wonderful worlds and are always evolving.

Or at least we used to be…

What has happened to this generation? I have met so many people who, if you ask what they like to read will answer with a horrific sentence:

“… I don’t read, unless you’re counting magazines…”

This has been bothering me for a long time.
I hate how superficial the whole world as become, we’re all about selfies, twerking, clubs and getting drunk, there is more drama than learning in our lives, and I’m talking about teenagers from the 13 years old and going up.

Honestly it’s a pity how little of our generation enjoys picking up a book and being transported to that imaginary world. It is a real pity that we are starting to lack imagination…

The begining

I have a hard time sticking to one subject since I enjoy quite a few. That is why I have decided to create this ‘blog’ and hopefully in the near future ‘vlog’ right now thought, I want to put things down in writing.
Thoughts, likes, dislikes.
I would also love to review books, movies, tv-shows and a lot of other things too.
Even thought I don’t look or sound it, I am not one of those people who is comfortable around other people. I wish I was and I will be trying to change that about myself so that I can experience life to its fullest potential.
I do hope that everyone who reads my blog will enjoy the content, comment and share their views on subjects and just in general help me adapt to being social!
