Did You Know?

Did you know??
Although using avocados and bananas are all the buzz now to get soft and shiny hair, all it will get you is a messy kitchen and bathroom. These products are great to help your hair for one day, but the proteins in them are way too big for your hair to absorb. And unless you are going to use them each day (yikes!), then you should head to a beauty supply store and check out some Vegan products that use "hydrolyzed" proteins - proteins from avocados and bananas that actually are small enough to help your hair.

Frozen Fruit Slush

Not pictured: sunshine

It's finally feeling like summertime here and we celebrated with some frozen fruit drinks!

This one was pretty simple and inspired by some mangos and limes that needed to be eaten.

1 large mango
1/2  lime (use the other half for garnish and to sugar the edges of the glass)
2 tbsp coconut milk
1 cup (1/2 each) frozen strawberries and raspberries
1/2 cuppineapple chunks in juice

Blend all ingredients. Use a lime slice to wet the edges of the glasses, and roll the glasses in coloured sugar. Pour in drink and add lime wedge to glass as garnish. Add an umbrella to class it up.

NB: You could also add some Triple Sec to make it a fun adult drink, too. We didn't, but it sounds pretty fantastic.
