Want Thick Lush Hair? Filipino Women Are All About Aloe

Filipino women are known for their thick, glossy hair. Their secret? The juice of the aloe leaf, known locally as sabila. Many keep a stash of long green aloe leafs in the fridge for an at-home sabila treatment (which is also offered at hair salons all over the country). For some mane maintenance, they break the leaf in half and massage the sticky juice into their scalps. Aloe is thought to not only fortify follicles and leave strands smooth and shiny, it’s also believed to stimulate hair growth. “Enzymes in the aloe break down dead skin cells blocking the hair follicles and restore the pH balance of the scalp for optimal growth,” explains Megan Garmers, founder of MG Hair and Makeup. “Lots of hair care products actually contain aloe—check the ingredients on yours!”

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
