BE SO GOOD THAT THEY CAN’T IGNORE YOU – MY INTERNSHIP STORY!

“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”

I am Rahimeen Javed and I am pursuing my B.A in Journalism and Mass Communications. When I got into college with this course, I was very excited about this subject. But later on I realised I never really got good exposure to this subject in my college. So I started looking for internships through Internshala. I applied for the Marketing internship at ReleasemyAd. I got a call and email that I was shortlisted. I was explained about how to go about with the internship.

Marketing’s job is never done. It’s about perpetual motion. We must continue to innovate everyday. The tasks given in the internship really enhances our knowledge. It made me more keen on learning the Insights of marketing. This internship made me more knowledgeable about marketing and communications and grew my interest in marketing. The internship made me learn that we don’t need to get afraid to get more creative and experiment with marketing.

 

DIY Magic Hair Oil!

silky-hair-625_625x350_81469006901

These days straightening, curling and blow drying has become everyone’s daily hair styling ritual. We constantly use these heating products to style our hair every other day. But this way, we are making our hair more prone to dull, dry, damaged and brittle hair! Heating our hair takes away all the moisture from our hair and therefore our hair becomes weak, frizzy, dull and more prone to split ends and dandruff. So what is the solution to this problem? Do we stop using these heating tools and stop styling our hair? Definitely a big NO!!But with proper care of our hair, we can definitely eliminate these hair problems.

Today I’m going to share one of my most favorite hair oil DIY which was shared by my mom! I just love this DIY and have been following this DIY oil religiously every once in a week since the past 6 months! My hair had become quite dull, damaged and frizzy due to the constant hair styling and heating, so this oil was a total savior for my hair! It eliminated the dullness, dryness and frizziness of my hair to quite an extent(80%).

Ingredients –

  1. 1 tablespoon Coconut Oil
  2. 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  3. 1 tablespoon Almond Oil

Method – 

  • Mix all the 3 oils in a bowl
  • Heat this in a microwave for 30-40 seconds (Make sure you don’t heat it much. You definitely don’t want to burn your scalp).
  • Apply this mixture of oil directly onto your scalp and start massaging it gently.
  • Massage your hair for at least 20 minutes to regulate blood circulation in your scalp which promotes the growth of hair!
  • You can use a shower cap to cover your hair and then leave it overnight. Or if you want to leave it overnight, you can do this 2-3 hours prior to washing your hair. Remember, the longer the better results!
  • Shampoo and condition your hair the next day and apply your favorite hair serum!
  • This amazing DIY oil will not only leave your hair amazingly smooth and silky, but if you follow this oiling ritual religiously, you will be able to see amazing results! Your hair will become frizz free, more lively and smooth. Free from all damage.

Final Verdict –
I have used Bajaj Almond Hair Oil, Figaro Olive Oil, and Parachute Coconut Oil. You can use any brands hair oil as per your liking. I am totally in love with this DIY. My hair had become totally dull and damaged due to the constant heating and styling, but using this hair oil regularly has made my hair much more better again! Do try this out and let me know the results! 🙂

Sometimes having too much of blackheads is too awkward and embarrassing! So finally after trying out many scrubs and DIY’s on how to remove blackhead/whiteheads, I looked upon the internet for a product which can efficiently remove all my pesky blackheads! I came upon a list of nose strips and therefore I decided to try one from the list! The very next day, I went to the market and bought one of those nose strips named ‘Cettua Silky and Clear Nose Strip with Witch Hazel’. It claims to be Hypo-allergenic and Dermatologist Tested!

My Experience with Cettua Nose Strips – The Cettua Nose Strips comes in a rectangular box which contains a total of six strips. The nose strips is designed in such a way that it can perfectly fit any nose. The direction to use these strips is clearly mentioned behind the box. You just need to wet your nose and the area beside the nose thoroughly for about 2-3 minutes and then stick the nose strip on your nose. The strip should be kept on the nose for about 15-20 minutes. Once it dries, it would feel a little stiff. After it dries out completely, just pull off the strip carefully but not so gently! The nose would feel a little itchy but once you wash it, it becomes smooth and silky. You can also put a bit of rose water/toner of your choice to shoo away the itchiness!

When I tried this strip, I totally fell in love with these strips! My nose felt blackhead free and smooth, silky and oil free. Due to the annoying pollution, I got a lot of these blackheads and with very little time to try out some DIY’s, I just had to try this out. The results were amazing. All the blackheads (95%) were gone with just one strip! Whoa!!  I have started using these strips every week.
