3 Amazing Benefits of Castor Oil For Hair & Skin

In our endeavour of finding natural ways to maintain lush, beautiful locks and glowing skin we have come across the extensive use of castor oil, a staple in Ayurvedic medicine.

Castor oil has trumped most every other oil I have tried for skin, hair and even nail beauty. My eyebrows and lashes as well!

Our 3 Castor Oil uses for Beauty;

1. Facial Cleanser: Wipe off along with any makeup and slather on a mix of castor and olive oil at night. We suggest applying once a day, and continuing the process over a period of time. It is a great medication to scars and sunburns. A high level of vitamin E accelerates the results. Depending on the skin the results but you will find for yourself a huge difference. If you haven’t tried oil cleansing, we strongly recommend it. Don't miss your eyelashes! It helps to get thicker and fuller eyelashes. 


2. Lips! Apply a tiny bit of castor oil on your lips as a part of your daily routine twice a day. You will observe a drop soaks in quite quickly and you can feel the difference in plumpness and smoothness after the application right away.


3. Grow Your Hair: Castor oil is used as a hair-growing agent for a reason. The coconut oil/castor oil mix is a popular choice, heavy on the coconut and light on the sticky castor oil. At night, part your hair and massage in a small amount of the mix on your scalp, part in a new place and repeat. Repeat until you’ve nourished the whole scalp. Let it penetrate your scalp, do it at least an hour before bed and don’t overdo it or you’ll wake up with oil all over the place. Ricinoleic acid, helps in increased circulation to the scalp and improve hair growth; Wash it out in the morning. 


Castor oil also contains antibacterial and anti-fungal compounds, which help treat acne and toenail fungus, and prevent dandruff; and omega 6 and omega 9 fatty acids, which may help reduce skin sensitivity and ease inflammation.

3 Reasons to use a Bamboo Bristle Brush

At Divo, hair is by far the most interesting and engaging conversation we have for most part of the year.

Today we are sharing with you that we expertise in, Brushes. In this post we tell you 3 advantages of a wooden bristle brush over a plastic one.

1. Reduces the Dryness:
Natural wooden bristles help to naturally condition your hair, unlike the plastic brushes that boost dryness of the scalp, resulting in an itchy scalp with heavy dandruff. A wooden comb evenly distributes your hair’s natural oils and avoiding a dry scalp.

2. Maintain the health of your hair:
Blood circulation and combing are vital to maintain a healthy hair. Wooden bristles are gentle and durable. Since they are wide, they are less likely to break the hair when combing. Therefore a joy! The more you comb, the better the circulation thus bringing lovely nutrients to the hair follicles and helping you maintain healthy locks.

3. Less Hair fall:
The right brush along with right products helps you a whole lot in low hair fall. Wooden bristles are often gentle to your hair and follicles. Therefore less tangled hair and a lot less damage to your hair and therefore less hair fall.

5 Blow Drying Mistakes

Whether you’re rushing to dry your locks or taking the time to create a sleek blow dry, we’re all prone to making a few mistakes, meaning we aren’t getting the full potential of our hair. Follow these 5 simple tips to avoid and improve your blow drying skills! 

Mistake # 1: Not using products.
Hair products are the best way to ensure your hair stays protected during styling. Not only do they protect the hair from damage but they also help to optimize the performance of hot tools, which means you get healthier hair and a better overall style. We at DIVO Diaries suggest use of gel or a hair serum before blow drying. It will provide heat protection and always guarantees a smooth, shiny finish!


Mistake # 2: Your hair's too wet.
Hair that is too wet will take forever to dry and style. If you’re planning to properly air-dry and avoid tangled hair, dab your hair with a towel for a smooth and absorbent approach, then gently squeeze out the moisture so that your hair is no longer dripping wet. We recommend drying the hair off to around 80% before using a brush to begin styling the hair.



Mistake # 3: Blow dry at one go.
Many people make the mistake of trying to dry and style large amounts of hair in one go. Take a moment to section your hair, even if you only divide your hair into two sections. You can choose ear to ear, separating the top from the bottom. This will make your hair easier to blow dry for a more even result and ensure the back and underneath is dry. Be sure every section is completely dry before moving onto the next one to protect your hair from frizz and fuzziness.


Mistake # 4: Not using the Right brush.
Using the right brush is by far the most important aspect to achieve the desired result. Use a small-medium round brush to achieve bounce and a medium-large sized round brush for smooth and sleek. Extend your arm up and out when you're drying the root area to add volume and body then let your arm fall once you've reached the ends of your hair with the brush.

Mistake # 5: You are not using the heat protector.
Using a heat protector is a must! It doesn’t matter if your hair is strong and healthy, this step you must not skip. If you use a heat protector you will achieve better results and a better-styled hair. And of course, it will protect your hair from heat damaging. Your hair will look better and keep the healthiness so think of this step as a crucial thing of blow-drying!



Let us know what you think or have something that has worked well for you. We would love to hear from you!

Stay Lovely!

DIY Lip Balm

Caring and nourishing your lips with a lip balm, softens as well as adds shine. Applying a lip balm should invariably an everyday routine. Lip balm’s can well be made at home. Let’s have a look at what to start with;
  • A small tin
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon beeswax pellets
  • 1 teaspoon almond oil
  • 15 drops of cinnamon essential oil
  • 3/4 tablespoon of raw honey

Once you have everything together, here’s how you make the lip balm:

Start with mixing together the coconut oil, beeswax pellets, and almond oil. Next, microwave or heat the mixture on the gas for about 1-2 minutes.

Once the mixture is heated up, remove it from the gas and immediately add 15-20 drops of your essential oil. Now pour the mixture in the container tin. Allow to cool for 15 minutes, until solid. We like to let ours cool for at least 45minutes to be on the safe side.

Once it’s solid, it is all pretty and ready to use. You can experiment with a variety of lip balms.
