For very dry or damaged hair
2-3 dollops of mayonnaise
1 tbls of olive oil
Put banana in blender and puree until completely smooth. (Whatever you do make sure you puree it the first time I skipped this part and I had clumps of banana in my hair which sucked, so make sure you get the banana mixture completely smooth you really don't want clumps of banana in your hair.
The great thing about this recipe is that even if you do mess up and get clumps in your hair it's just banana and a second rinse or mash will get it out.
Then add mayo and oil and blend until smooth and creamy. Apply to hair. Let sit for 15-30 minutes. Rinse with warm water and shampoo as usual.
This Banana Hair mask will make your hair so moist and smooth you'll think you suddenly have a completely new head of hair. It's a must try.

What I am using right now:
Shampoo/Condionter: vitamin shampoo/conditioner
Styling products: Aloe Gel
Shower Gel: bath and body sweet pea
Body moisturizer: Olay Body Quench
Deodorant: Secret Flawless
Fake Tan: already tan
Cleanser: Estee Lauder Splash Away
Eye makeup remover/ Exfoliator: Estee Lauder Soft Clean, Estee Lauder so polished and spot treatment
Primer: Vital Radiance Smoothing Face Primer, Apricot-Warm
Foundation: Mineralize Satinfinish
Foundation brush: 187
Concealer: studio light
Blusher: Tahitian Sand
Bronzer: Emote Highlighter: NMSF MEDIUM
Eyeshadow base: none
Eyelash curler: lash automatically curl
Eyelash base: none
Mascara: Lash Stiletto Mascara
Lipstick/Lipgloss: Shy Girl/Boy Bait
Nail Colour: up mode
Angel: a pale pink
Pretty Baby: Soft sunny pink with gold
Overall: Angel is much more pronounce, because it's a matte blush, but both gives off the same effect to me (The "Brightener" effect that is), but very differently. Blushes/Powders like these looks so lovely on the Warm skin(and I'm sure cool skin)!! Don't be scared of the swatches you may see on your hand. Just know it would look so different when swatched on warm cheeks. Just pack a few layers on with the 129 (after you applied your fav. foundation).

I got tagged by madison817; I tag everyone!
what’s your favourite eye shadow color to wear? mac e/s in shroom. Gives my lid a beauitful opalescent sheen.
what’s the one product you wouldn’t leave your house without? moisturizer
what’s your favourite makeup look – high drama OR natural? I would say natural.
which feature do you play up the most? I use to think my eyes, but now I believe its my cheeks lol.
which feature do you try to downplay/cover up? under eye circles
your favourite makeup brand, if you could pick only ONE to exist? mac
which product have you re-purchased OVER and OVER again? MAC NMSF and MAC Studio Light
which product would you NEVER repurchase again and why? Lash Blast Waterproof mascara, because it makes my lashes feel like brillo and very hard to remove.
one beauty treatment you would always PAY to have done? hmmm I don't pay for anything.
one beauty treatment you would NEVER pay to have done? cosmetic surgery
one beauty trick you can share with everyone? want dewy eyelids add a touch of lipgloss.
best advice you've ever been given regarding beauty and makeup? the meaning of "FIX+" it! lol
Pretty Please: Pearled Pale Pink
Fashion Mews: a pale lavender
Before the HK line came out I though I had a pale pinkish lavender lipstick (yes I know lol). So, I swatched it to compare it(knowing it wasn't going to be the same just wanted to "wow" myself lol). Big Freaking difference.
Gentle Coral: soft coral
Glosspitality: sassy orange-coral without pearl or sparkle
Overall: There both produce the same coloring, but if your looking for something like the "creme sheen" lipgloss. Go with the "Lipgelle", but if you need something with "SPF" than go with the TLC. ( keep reading...)
Shy Girl: Creamy neutral coral beige
Pleasureseeker: Creamy peach
Cute-Ster: Sheer peachy pink with pearl
Overall: The only difference is that "Cute-Ster" has a gold shimmer to it.
Peony Shimmerbrick: shimmery bright pink
Desirous: Bright coral with gold pearls
Tippy: candy pink
Dollymix: Pure candy pink
Petalpoint: light bright pink with silvery frost
Overall: Add a little bit of dollymix to petalppoint you create "tippy".
I'm no longer the ownder of the Sculpt Foundation (it was love at first coverage, but I broke out and others started mentioning breaking out ..so yeah not going crazy). I ended up switching it for the two lippies (Fashion Mews and Cute-ster).
I ended up, getting the "tahitian sand" beauty powder, because I'm sooo in love with "pretty baby". Seriously ladies it show on my skintone (gave me a nice soft bright effect). I used my mini #129 brush ...so = love!
I also got the "gentle coral" TLC, because I just wanted a coral lip conditioner..I'm kind of iffy with coral, but since it will be sheer I thought I'd give it a try.
I got suckered in to getting the "ever so rich" l/g, but oh well :)
Tippy...I heard about it...dreamt about it..now I got it!! <33
So, Basically I kept my first words and got what I really wanted which was both beauty powder blushes, both tinted lip conditioner and both beauty powders.
Ok blessed I check my mail, because not only did I find out that I made it on the "Dean's List" for my Fall semester of 2008, and I only mention this, because if it wasn't for this freaking letter I wouldn't of checked my MAIL!!! (Thank gosh I did. I need to add my guest to the list to attend the reception, because I was going to miss this event too!!)...
ANYWHO!! I got not only 1, but 2 invites!!!!!!!! I'm just lost for words right now...please have a moment of silence for me lol
and I didn't even get to go to one!!...I never checked my mail pile lol.

Pink Fish: Soft neutral pink
Petting Pink: a natural pink
VG1 Special Edition: pink mauve
I asked myself if I needed "Pink Fish" since I have "Petting Pink". As you can see the difference in coloring I needed it, but I also have VVG1 Special Edition LG which do looks like it (minus the hint of sparkles). If you never tried a TLC heres your chance. They so = love!
Fleurry: Soft peachy pink (Frost)
Joyous: Peach with gold pearl (Satin)
Style: Coral-peach with gold pearl (Frost)
Springsheen: Peach with pearl (Sheertone Shimmer)
Fun & Games: Soft orange peach
Spaced Out: Duo Chrome Shimmery Peach
Fun and Games: looks more warmer
Spaced Out: looks more cooler
Fun and Games: glitter
Spaced Out: sheen
Fun and Games: as you can see here "Fun and Games: has more of a "orange" glitter cast to it.
Spaced Out: here "Spaced out" has an opalescent duo chrome sheen to it.
Overall: In person I can see how the two looks very much similar, but as you can see here no MAC product is alike. When I went to pick this blush up ...one of the MA loved my blush (I was wearing "Spaced Out").
