I’ve been feeling down lately and maybe some of you are too.
Here’s a little something that will cheer anyone up!
Getting a hair treatment at the salon can be expensive. While there are hair masks readily sold, you don’t really know what goes in there do you?
Here is a simple hair mask recipe you can make and use.
Things you’ll need
- an egg (smaller if you have short hair, large egg for long hair)
- castor oil
- natural unsweetened yogurt
Step 1 : Break the egg into a bowl and beat it until well combined. Try to keep it from frothing.
Step 2 : Measure out a 3 tablespoons of castor oil and pour it into the egg. (Adjust to fit the length of your hair).
Step 3 : Add 3 tablespoons of the yogurt and add it to the mixture.
Step 4 : Mix until well combined. The yogurt will be separated at first but after a few minutes of mixing it will combine smoothly into the mixture.
Step 5 : Wash your hair in warm/hot water and towel dry
Step 6 : Apply the egg mixture to the damp hair using fingers. Use a glove if you don’t like sticky fingers.
Step 7 : Wrap hair in plastic wrap and a warm towel. Leave on for half and hour to an hour
Step 8 : Rinse out the mask in cold water. DO NOT use hot or warm water as it might cook the eggs that’s in your hair.
Step 9 : Shampoo and condition as normal, and you’re done!
Your hair should feel healthier and more manageable. The protein from the eggs help strengthen your hair while the yogurt and castor oil is good for retaining moisture in your hair cuticles.
This is a versatile recipe so if you feel like your hair could need some other ingredients you can add that in too. The essential oils just help make it smell nicer because let’s face it, raw eggs in your hair for an hour isn’t going to smell very pleasant.
If you give this a try, let me know how it goes!

Tumblr is really great for showcasing all sorts of design work.
Here are five of my favourite design tumblr :
Designcloud features all things graphic design, typography, architecture, interior design and art.
As the title suggests, a collection of very clever and interesting infographics. You really need to visit the site to have a proper look at the infographics. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then an infographic = 1000 pictures!
3. Visual Sundae
“A collection of top drawer art and design, an assemblage of interesting ideas” I couldn’t have said it better myself.
Got an addiction to magazine covers? This is the right place for you.

Stop motion, also known as stop frame, is an animation technique used by filmmakers and it’s been used in many movies and music videos.
Over the past few years, Youtube has been filled with short stop motion videos.
They’re simply comforting to watch and will always leave a smile on your face.

I hope you have fun trying these. They’re fairly easy to do. Most of them use a dotting tool, which I don’t have. You can always substitute with the back of a small paintbrush or a toothpick.
