Flawless Hair & Lips

Most of you may know, one of the privileges of living in Europe is that the water is so clean most of us just drink it straight from the tap. However, as much as I enjoy the convenience when it comes to haircare, the hard water we have can be extremely harmful, especially for those who wash their hair every day. The edges become really dry and they tangle easily. Luckily, I've found the perfect solution -- Sister & Co Coconut oil. (I mean, seriously, is there anything it cannot solve?)歐洲的水好,有著水龍頭打開就可以飲用的保證。不過,由於水質硬,長期下來,洗髮後髮質容易乾澀,嚴重點還容易打結,苦惱很久。在國外居住已超過七年,早已有習慣的設計師,不過頭髮一出狀況就往髮廊跑,對學生來說實在吃不消。久了,就會開始自己摸索各種保養頭髮的產品。

When people talk about oil, they usually think of face oil. But since I have such dry hair, hair oil is a great life saver. Picking the right hair oil can be a little tricky because the last thing you want is to wake up with oily hair. Sister & Co.'s Coconut Drink is formulated to nourish fragile dry hair. The product is also rich in nut oil which can increase fluffiness, preventing your hair to look flat the next day. The best time is to use it before shampooing, dividing your hair into different areas, and gently massage the product into the scalp. Let it stand for about 10-15 minutes before rinsing.  

A while ago, I was feeling stressed about finding a balance between life & work. So, in one of the days when work ended early, I like spending a good moment doing a mini hair spa at home, it was definitely good relaxation. Not that all my problems are instantly solved, but I did feel so much better. And in a few days, I saw a significant difference in my hair. Properly moist and so much softer. 

近年來,天然的保養油盛行,從護膚到頭髮滋養都有。不過美髮油除了滋潤效果重要外,還要注意不能讓頭髮扁塌,因為這樣容易顯得無神。Sister & Co. 的純椰洗前柔髮露,能對脆弱的乾燥髮質加以改善,修復滋養之餘,更能加強毛鱗片保健。產品富含的摩洛哥堅果油還能增加彈性與輕盈度,讓秀髮蓬鬆自然。洗髮前,搖勻並按押取適量後,從髮際開始將頭皮分成不同區塊,用指腹按摩,靜置片刻後再進行清洗。

前陣子事情多,工作與生活都發生了改變,蠟燭兩頭燒。於是,在緊湊趕忙中,特別挑了拍攝較早結束的一天,自己好好進行頭髮護養,讓心情放鬆。過了兩三天,髮質明顯水潤許多,好喜歡椰油讓頭髮呈現的自然保濕感哪!如同台灣的亞熱帶島國氣候並不會讓頭髮太過乾澀;這幾個星期在紐約使用下來,療效的確舒適宜人。

Of all the products on my vanity, lip balm is my personal favourite. A good lip product goes a long way, and plus, they always come in a cute little jar that I just cannot resist. Basically, whenever I start testing a new brand, I never miss their lip balm. Coconut oil is the perfect hydrating ingredient, and this Sister & Co. Lip Tonic is infused with avocado oil and beeswax, which makes it even better for nourishing cracked lips. The product comes with two flavour: Lemon & Rose. I love using the Rose one as a hydrating lip mask at night, and the Mint one as a daytime essential. 

從臉部、身體到頭髮的各類保養,唇膏是我最喜歡也最常購買的產品。一方面,是因為個人喜好,另一放面則時因為歐洲真的很乾燥,每次護唇產品都會快速見底。基本上,在嘗試新的護膚品牌後,只要發現他們有推出唇膏,都會入手一瓶來試試。加上這類產品通常瓶身較小,也方便旅遊時攜帶。純椰油本來就是滋養聖品,再加上酪梨油和蜂蠟所打造出的純椰潤唇霜,更是能深層保濕。Sister & Co. 純椰潤唇霜共有玫瑰荳蔻檸檬香桃薄荷兩種口味,可依個人喜好做選擇。淡雅的玫瑰荳蔻適合晚上睡前當唇膜厚敷,而清新的檸檬香桃薄荷則是可以在白天拿來適時塗抹。
