I was born on september 22, 1994 in Queretaro, Mexico. Even when I had never travel before I felt really interested about exploring the world and getting to know others culture at the age of 14.
Nopal is a cactus type and its one of the most representative symbols of Mexican culture around the world and also a characteristic part of the population diet. Its fame started a long time ago with an Aztec legend that talks about a group of natives that traveled to find a signal given by their gods.
This would represent its land and town “Tenochtitlan” Mexico’s name before the spanish conquer. They walked miles and miles far away from home and through the desert and found an eagle eating a snake on the top of a cactus, this group of men felt so amazed that assumed this was the signal they were looking for and drew it because of this reason. This icon is in the middle of the Mexican flag.
Actually, the cactus is used in many ways, as low calorie food, pills to improve digestion, alternative medicine and beauty products thanks to its moisturizing properties that can be used as a cosmetic purpose and helps to hydrate and nourish hair.
Making cactus slime part of your daily bath routine will help your hair create a layer of water that will prevent it from drying and will keep it soft, healthy and bright.
For that you’ll need to follow some easy steps:
1. Carefully remove its thorns with a knife.
2. Cut some cactus slices and let the slime set on a bowl of water all night.
3. Take a shower and proceed with your normal bath routine, put the mixture all over your hair and massage your head.
4. Wash out the slime after some minutes with fresh water.
This mask can also be spread over the skin, both uses are completely safe and will improve the texture and hydration.
