Tips to combat the dryness of your hair while you sleep

Tips to combat the dryness of your hair while you sleep:
Yes while you sleep. It is important to remember that your hair care need psyche even overnight, because due to the dry atmosphere and texture of the pillowcases can dehydrate your hair at night and experience high dryness.What causes tangling and breaking during the night. And when you wake your hair  is dry, lifeless and full of tangles.

The best way to protect it during your sleep time is to use these little tricks, that in addition to easy  they a are not time consuming. So you can put into practice anywhere you are, whether at home or on vacation.


The first thing I do is describe the steps and products I use to make my hair look perfect in the morning.

1-I try to moisturize my hair with a good conditioner whenever I wash it. The conditioner also gives me shine and is perfect for detangling hair while I shower and keeps it tangle free.
2 I use a restorative intensive mask twice a week or when I need it . That provides vitamins and fiber strengthens my hair.

3 -I always have a hair oil or a shea butter, avocado etc ….. Before going to bed, I always kind of a restful oil, I mix with a little shea butter on hand before applying  on my hair. That helps my hair stay hydrated all night.

4- Finally: I tie my hair in four braids, after applying  oil  mixes with  shea butter. Then I put a satin cap or scarf. With which I sleep, that helps my hair retain moisture and hydrated , so the next day is ready to style  (Women of the past century,  used hats or scarves, also hair gathered to sleep ) This can be clearly seen in the novel “Little Women” where the author Louisa may Alcott, the author described how young  girl and putting on their hats before  an   braids before bed time  bedtime.
5- By day I always try to wear a protective hair cream whose main ingredient is water. To keep my hair hydrated throughout the day.

Tip: You can also buy a satin pillow to sleep if you find it more comfortable than the scarves. It is important to be satin because most fibers used to make pillowcases absorb moisture from the hair and the surface is very rough porous also. What makes your hair loses moisture quickly and break.

I hope you have enjoyed the tricks and  serve  you in the future. So  you wake up with a healthy and vibrant hair.

Aljafería: a perfect building for the Game of Thrones series, locations.

I have not visited any place, because since I returned from Africa have not been in good health. But the other day I finally went to see an exhibition of drawing, at a place called the Aljaferia A converted castle located in the city of Zaragoza. And while I was inside, I realized it would be a perfect place as a location for another of my favorite series Game of Thrones. The place is beautiful and full of majesty. I leave a written a little history of this incredible building. Where they are now located, The Courts of Aragon.


The Aljafería is a fortified palace built in Zaragoza in the second half of the eleventh century on the initiative of Al-Muqtadir as residence of kings hudíes Saraqusta. This pleasure palace (then called ‘Qasr al-Surur’ or Palace of Joy) reflecting the splendor attained by the taifa kingdom in its maximum period of political and cultural peak.

Its importance is that it is the only remaining testimony of a large building of Spanish Islamic architecture from the time of the Taifa. So if a great example of the Caliphate of Cordoba, the Mosque (X century), and other swansong of Islamic culture in Al-Andalus is preserved, the fourteenth century, the Alhambra in Granada, should be included in triad Moorish architecture Aljafería of Zaragoza (XI century), as shown in the embodiments of the taifa art, intermediate time of independent kingdoms prior to the arrival of the Almoravids. The remains of the Moorish palace Aljafería were declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2001 as part of the set “Mudejar Architecture of Aragon ‘.1

The solutions adopted in the ornamentation of Aljafería as using archways and springers in ‘S’ extension ataurique permeated large areas or flowcharting and progressive abstraction of the plasterwork of vegetable nature, influences on the Almoravid and Almohad art both the Maghreb and the Iberian Peninsula. Also, the transition towards more decoration in geometric patterns is the basis of Moorish art.

After the reconquest of Zaragoza in 1118 by Alfonso I the Battler became the residence of the Christian kings of Aragon, which Aljafería became the main focus of the Aragonese Mudejar diffuser. It was used as a royal residence by Pedro IV of Aragon and later, on the main floor, took out the reform that made these rooms in the palace of the Catholic Monarchs in 1492. In 1593 experienced another reform that would make military fortress, first according Renaissance designs (which can be seen today in its environment, moat and gardens) and later as military barracks regiments. He suffered major damage and ongoing reforms, especially with the Siege of Zaragoza War of Independence until finally it was restored in the second half of the twentieth century and now houses the Cortes of Aragon.

Originally the building was outside the walls of the Roman wall, in plain Saria or place where Muslims developed military fanfare known as Almozara. With urban expansion through the years, the building has been in the city. It has been able to meet around a small garden setting.

Something Simple, Courgette + Feta Salad

Courgette + Feta Salad | Thyme & Honey

The other day I was asked what set my blog apart from the rest. In short, what was my USP?

In a world where even the most obscure ingredient is relatively accessible, complex recipes, fancy techniques and even fancier equipment saturate our daily lives. Don’t get me wrong, I would jump at the chance to dine at Noma, but ask me where I’d be happiest and I’d say sitting by the sea with grilled octopus dressed in lemon and olive oil and a village salad. Rustic food, food meant for the table, for the act of sharing and breaking bread, that’s the food that I love and the food that I cook.

I’m not sure that counts as a USP, but I’m not one for fads and gimmicks. So simple cooking, rustic fare and an approachable way of eating is what it’s got to be for me, and what…

Big Fish in a Small Pond

Originally posted on BitterSweet:

If we can all agree that 2013 was the year of the coconut, then I do hereby declare 2014 the year of the vegan fish. Perhaps the trend isn’t quite so widespread or pronounced- You’re not about to find mock seafood woven into everything from granola bars to non-dairy beverages, thank goodness- but it’s a distinct and growing section of the innovative food industry. While the demand for cruelty-free alternatives has grown to a deafening roar over the past decade, meatless offerings never included any oceanic facsimiles. It was the last frontier of veganism, but no more.

I first became aware of Atlantic Natural Foods and their Vegetarian Fishless Tuna back in the cold days of winter, and thanks to my snail’s pace of turning out a review, they have since updated their branding. It now falls under their Caroline’s line, bearing a shiny new label, but the product itself…
