I like cat. Cat just part of my life, I always have cat in home, whether they come to home as stray cat or I have them since they born. Literary cat is just never stop being around me, Until the nightmare came to my hair and I had no idea if the cause of it is my cats. So sad.

Back then, I had some cats who still kitten but can already play running here and there. I used to sleep with them and that night I sleep with them as usual yet became unusual. That night I slept so deep till I couldn’t feel something wrong was happening on my hair. One of the kitten was peeing on my hair while I was sleeping and the worse thing is I didn’t wash it directly so the pee was soaked up into my hair overnight. Yap nightmare!

In the morning I wake up and still didn’t feel anything wrong on my hair because of my energy is not there yet. In Indonesia school start generally at 7 am so I have no time to recognize what was happening last night, what I knew I have to take shower and go to school. Don’t get me wrong I washed my hair in the morning. In the school I didn’t feel any wrong still, until evening when all of the family sat down watching tv. I finger-comb my hair and how shocked I was when I saw hair fall like I pull it off too hard. It was full on my hand. I keep comb it because I was scared what was happening to me. Then I talk to my parent and they had no idea what the heck is happening to me. I back to my bed and cry. When I cry and sleep laying down I smell something horrible on my pillow and bed sheet. And that was the pee and it must be the cat pee. I was directly think of my hair and relate all of the tragedy. I think I knew what was happening to me. Then I was going to bathroom to wash my hair again and it just making it worst. The hair fall on the floor make even more mess.

My hair was bald and I don’t know what to do. The next day my mom bought me fresh aloe vera leaves. I grab it and cut the edges and the skin off to get all the gel out.

I apply the gel on my scalp down to the tip of my hair. Sometimes my mom help me to apply it. I applied it every single day nonstop in the evening 1 hour before I took shower. What a surprise in a month I got my hair regrow perfectly.

Here how to use it:

  1. Cut the sharp edges of the aloe vera leaf. BE CAREFUL
  2. Cut the aloe vera leaf to small part, so it’s easy to hold. I used to cut it around 2 inches.
  3. Slice one of the skin off so you will be exposed the gooey transparent gel.
  4. Slice the transparent gel (like a #) so you will have even more slimy gel coming out.
  5. Directly rub onto your scalp. Please be gentle.
  6. Leave it for about 1 hour and cover it with thin towel. I don’t recommend using shower cap because it has no air flow and causing the hair warm up.
  7. Rinse with COLD water or wash with shampoo and rinse with COLD water.
  8. Air dry.

How much aloe vera gel should be used is depend on your problem area. You might need more than 1 leaves to cover all over your scalp. The time to see the result might be different.

Aloe vera is a great thing that always help me take care of my body problem. I didn’t believe it can worked. The key is routine to use it and we will see the result without we realize it.

I recommend you guys to try aloe vera to treat your bald hair. But don’t be afraid to ask doctor that might help you with more accuracy. Thank you for visiting my blog, hope you enjoy and get inspired.

So because I run out of my face wash then I was looking for new one. I was searching for so many product that has no perfume or things like that in it which can dry out my skin and leave me tight feeling on my face just like my old facial wash did.

After searching and browsing I decided to try face wash from The Body Shop Aloe Calming Foaming Wash. In the packaging this face wash is fragrance-free, colorant-free, preservative-free and alcohol-free.

My skin type was so oily and because of that I tried lots of product to decrease the oil on my skin and now it become so dry even flaky and wrinkly in some areas like between my eyebrows. This is why I need gentle face wash that will not scrape off my skin natural oil and makes my skin even drier.

The product is in liquid form but when I pump it out it will transform into foam. Honestly this is my first time using foaming face wash like this one. I was confuse in the beginning because how can it clean my face with this foam. I tried once and failed because I spread into my palm first like regular face wash and when I put onto my face the lather just gone. I was like “whaat?!”. I tried again the second time and I put onto my face directly after I pump without spreading on my palm and it works that way. I was laughing because I was so scared this thing is not worth it.

 

 

My problem with face wash is some of them are drying my face afterward, makes my skin feel so tight like anything and also I really easy to get breakout from face wash even it just a facial wash and will not stay for long time on my skin but I could get breakout and when I got breakout it will take months to get better.

The Body Shop Aloe Calming Foaming Wash is not making my skin as tight as before but I still feel some dryness after I washed my face. I think if I use moisturizer this dry-feeling will not be a big issue. 

PROs

  • Alcohol free
  • The foam makes it last long in one pump
  • Affordable (I got it for around $13 for 5 oz)

CONs

  • I still can feel dryness on my face
  • I can’t get the travel size because I travel a lot and transferring product to new bottle just not my passion

I think for the next I want to try another face wash from the body shop like the tree tea oil one or maybe will try cetaphil cleanser but for now I will use this face wash and see the different on my skin.

So how about you gangs? Do you have same skin problem like I have?
