Beach Vibes: Lani Tropical Hair and Body
These long summer days have been lovely especially up here in the Lakes, which has been a nice change from previous wash-out summers! And with the higher temperatures, hours spent outside in the sun and recent re-ignited love affair with my hair curling wand (bad I know but I wanted boys to think I was a mermaid), my hair has taken a bit of a beating. While I wouldn’t say it’s terribly sun damaged, I have noticed my hair has become quite dry with a lot of split ends. I don’t use heat styling tools very frequently (maybe once or twice a fortnight) but when I do, my hair does not like it one bit! It feels as rough and dry as a sun-baked bushel of barley. OK that’s not the best analogy but the alliteration worked! Anyway to help my hair look a bit more lustrous I have been testing out Lani Tropical Hair Treatment to amp up my usual hair washing and conditioning routine (I’m currently still using the Green People Quinoa and Artichoke range). And to keep parched skin at bay, I have been abandoning my usual ritual of slathering myself in plain coconut oil, for Lani Tropical Body Treatment.
Beach Babe Hair
To achieve glossy happy hair I have been using this treatment once a week – and it really has saved my dull distressed locks! All I do is completely wet my hair in the shower, towel dry a little so it isn’t soaking, and then apply enough Lani Tropical Hair Treatment oil to coat all the length of my hair. I let it sit in a plait for about 30 minutes to an hour (Pinterest or Amazon Prime movies make the time go faster!) then shampoo at least twice to remove as much of the oil as I can. If it doesn’t all wash out, I just wait until morning to wash my hair again and it usually does the trick. It does also suggest on the bottle that you can massage some into your scalp (particularly for dryness or itchiness), though I avoid this since the last time I attempted oil in my roots, it would not wash out! Instead I keep it for the ends only and it gives my hair so much shine, reduces frizz and makes it oh so soft.

Healthy Soft Skin
Since going green I haven’t tried many body oils so it has been nice to try something new! With the scent of moringa and ylang ylang, this body treatment has been designed to make you feel like you are far away on a tropical shore beside a turquoise blue sea. I have really enjoyed using a body oil in the morning after a shower, and it instantly makes my skin feel hydrated and supple. Unfortunately I have also discovered I am personally not a huge fan of the scent of either moringa or ylang ylang though the initial strong scent does fade quite quickly after about ten minutes (a bit like how perfume smells different after it’s been on the skin). I think another aroma blend to add to the range would be nice – perhaps orange, neroli, jasmine or grapefruit for the girls who like sweet scents!
Never-the-less I have found the Lani Body Treatment to be a beautiful oil for achieving healthy and glowy skin (especially nice to apply on legs if you’re wearing a skirt or summer dress), and for using to help maintain a fake or natural tan. Quick tip: if you have body acne, I’d recommend to avoid applying this oil on affected/problem areas as coconut oil is very comedogenic and can cause acne to flare up (I always make sure to avoid my back, shoulders, and chest). This Lani Body Treatment is also perfect for eczema and dry skin conditions to promote the natural healing process.
