Hemp Shampoo??????

well i was doing some shopping at Sally beauty store i ran into this bottle of shampoo which happened to caught my attention. Yea!!! ive seen shampoo before with fragrance such as coconut or refreshing waterfall mist from suave BUT THIS SHAMPOO WAS DIFFERENT!! this shampoo was made from hemp and had this big green marijuana leaf right on the bottle. Honesty i didn't know they made hemp shampoo. I knew they made hemp clothing but thats about it. The benefits of hemp is often ignored. This is a natural product which has been cultivated for over ten thousand of years.  It is very popular all around the world the ancient chinese called it "ma" they used hemp in building material, cloth and paper. In india they believe that hemp was a product that was produced by their gods. It a very controversial issue wether it offers any benefits. in my opinion this proves that this product is very beneficial. I would recommend this shampoo. Ive tried many shampoo but this product   i absolutely love. i bet you would too. Ive did many experiments on my hair which had damage my hair and caused some server breakage. Example last year i beached my hair 7 times in one day because my hair was so dark i could get the shade i wanted. And yes i knew what i was doing would be extremely harmful to my hair but hey i was determined hehehe i was just surprised my hair didn't fall off because you always have to wait a couple days in order to bleach again.. But hey i look at it like this their if always a bright side if my hair did fall off i would have purchased an exotic wig thats would have been the solution to my problem :) after i did bleach my hair seven times i finally end my journey of my transformation. i finally had the colors in my hair i wanted which were blue purple and pink. I love adding color to my hair but its just a hassle to get my hair to the colors i  desire. so i dyed my hair complete black and i get my hair cut often.. this shampoo does actually what my hair needs it nourish and reinforce against damage, increases elasticity balance moisture levels, and smoothes cuticles. It leaves your hair feeling smooth frizz free and smelling great :) It's safe for color-treated hair and gentle for everyday usage. and NOOO you will not i mean will not start to hallucinate once the aroma hit the air. u can purchase it in sally beauty store or visit their website www.zotos.com :) and remember LA VIDA ES BELLA/ LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL

Hi GUYS!!! i know there are plenty of people who are big fans of sweets :) i cant lie i am too. As a kid i loved to watch cooking channels and try to make the sweets i saw on tv i made coconut morroons cupcakes cakes cookies, of course they never turned out like the ones on tv but they were discent and most important they were good. well to me they were hehehe My mother always complained of the mess, it was always a disater in the kitchen when i would bake. LOL i had so much fun baking. well today in day cupcakes are in right now. Last week i made coconut cupcakes a recipe of martha swart to share with you a recipe for coconut cupcakes and they were pretty tastetly. so i would like to share with your the recipe i found.
Ingredients makes 2 dozens

3 cups of flour
2 teaspoons baing powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 sticks unsalted butter
2 1/4 cups of sugar
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup of coconut milk
8 egg whites
1 1/4 cups shredded sweetened coconut

1.)Ok well for the cupcakes you need to pre-heat the oven to 350 degress.  you will need to put liners in a two 12 cup muffin pans or just spray them with butter so the cupcakes wont stick.
2.) in a bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, and salt put aside.
3.)in another bowl beat butter and two cups sugar until light and fluffy 3-4 min. then beat in vanilla. Add flour in three parts pour in the milk also in three parts. mix well
4.) in another bowl beat egg whites on low speed until foamy then add remaing sugar change speed too high mix until its stiff for about four min. fold a third of the whites into the butter flour mixture fold in the rest and add the coconut.
5.) now divide the batter in the pan to me its easier using a ice cream scooper because its cleaner and it help measure the same amout. pop them in the oven for about 25 mins and your done. Let them cool down before your add the frosting you prefer. :) ENOY AND REMEMBER LIFE IF BEAUTIFUL AND SWEET!!! YUM
