Consejos para hidratar tu cabello

Por Kiwilimón - Mayo 2014
Uno de los peores enemigos del cabello es la resequedad. Y para mantenerlo sedoso, brillante, sin "frizz" o esponjado y sin orzuela necesita mantenerse hidratado y para ello se pueden usar acondicionador y algunos tratamientos ocasionales. En tiempo de calor en el que tomamos sol es necesario proteger el cabello para que no se reseque. No lo reseques Además de hidratarlo deberás protegerlo de todo aquello que pueda resecarlo como el el sol y el uso de instrumentos de calor como tenazas, secadoras, planchas, entre otros. Si usas estos instrumentos es necesario hidratarlo con mayor frecuencia. El champú contiene ingredientes limpiadores que pueden ser fuertes como los sulfatos. Si te lavas el pelo con frecuencia trata de usar un champú para uso diario o uno sin sulfatos. Asimismo, es importante el uso de un acondicionador para tu tipo de cabello que te deje el pelo suave sin perder volumen. Algunos tratamientos Los tratamientos se pueden hacer en el salón de belleza o en la casa. Lo más recomendado es que sean una vez por semana. Entre más largo es el cabello o si está teñido o tiene otro tipo de proceso químico, necesitas estos tratamientos. Se recomiendan las mascarillas acondicionadoras naturales o usar un producto recomendado por un especialista. Hay muchas opciones buenas en todos los precios. En cuanto a tratamientos naturales el aceite de coco y el aceite de oliva son muy buenos para el cabello. Por favor, no dejes de seguir las instrucciones en cuanto a tiempo y forma de uso. Si los tratamientos sólo se aplican como acondicionador normal no se obtienen todos los beneficios del producto.

Leer en españolThree kings cake is a delicious pan dulce eaten in Mexico and other countries on January 6th in line with the celebrations for Día de Reyes, or the Epiphany. In Mexico, rosca de reyes is often paired with beverages like hot chocolate, atole, café de olla, or champurrado.At kiwilimón, we share with you the story of this traditional bread for, according to experts, there are similar varieties in countries like the United States, France, Switzerland, Spain, and Belgium.What Is the Meaning of the Three Kings Cake?The three kings cake is consumed on January 6th after Melchior, Caspar, and Balthazar bring gifts to children. This type of bread is often paired with hot drinks. The most exciting part of this tradition is that, once they slice the rosca de reyes, people may find a plastic figurine representing Baby Jesus.This fluffy bread tastes like vanilla or orange and is covered with butter crusts, fruit paste, figs, and maraschino cherries. However, nowadays there is a wide variety of three kings cake filled with cream cheese, chocolate, hazelnut chocolate cream, jam, and more.Regarding its meaning, this bread has an oval or round shape because “it means that the love of God has no end”, that is, it has no beginning and no end, according to information published by Mexico’s Agrifood and Fisheries Information Service.Inside the rosca de reyes, we can find several Baby Jesus plastic figurines, however, this represents one of the bloodiest episodes in the Bible: the massacre of children upon order of King Herod. Little children figurines are hidden in the bread as though they were being protected. According to tradition, once one or several people find a plastic figurine, they are obliged to prepare or buy tamales for Candlemas, which is celebrated on February 2nd. The Origins of the Three Kings CakeThis traditional bread is a classic and is one of the favorite celebrations among people of all ages, however, this tradition is not from Mexico. Rosca de reyes began being prepared in several European countries during the Middle Ages, but it arrived in Mexico after the Spanish colonization. More than 100 years later, there are all sorts of roscas de reyes.Keep reading to learn about two of the main precedents of the Mexican Three Kings Cake: France’s galette des rois and Spain's roscón de reyes.Galette des RoisThis delicious three kings cake was created in France during the 16th century. It is available since mid-December, but it is traditionally eaten on January 6th for the Epiphany or even during the whole month.Traditional galette des rois is prepared with puff pastry and is filled with frangipane, a sweet filling made with pastry cream and almond cream. The funniest part of this celebration is that the person who finds the porcelain figure hidden inside the galette des rois will wear a cardboard crown and will be named king or queen for a day. Roscón de ReyesThis Spanish version of the three kings cake is related to the Roman Saturnalia, a series of celebrations in honor of god Saturn. Back then, people prepared a special sweet bread. Later on, the Spanish, just like the French, began hiding a fava bean inside the roscón; the kid who finds it becomes king for one day.Contrary to the galette des rois, Spanish roscón de reyes is pretty similar to the rosca de reyes eaten in Mexico. Roscón de reyes is round and is garnished with candied fruits and is sometimes filled with cream or other sweet fillings.Translated by Miranda Perea
Leer en españolIt’s time to say goodbye to the old year! Let’s toast in honor of the closing of the year and the chance to start over. Nothing better to do so than seasonal drinks like cider, a beverage everyone has enjoyed in different celebrations and that is closely related to beer and mead. These three drinks go under a similar fermentation process, although the main liquid with which cider is made is apple-based.This sweet and refreshing drink is an important tradition all over the world, especially in Great Britain, where almost 154 million gallons of cider are produced every year (about 45% of the apples produced in the UK are used for cider). The origin of cider goes back to the Norman colonization in 1066, when the production of this beverage began in monasteries. By 1300, cider had gone mainstream in all the counties of England. Nowadays, there are Irish, German, French, Spanish, Belgian, Czech, Finnish, Italian, Norwegian, Swedish, Dutch, Argentinian, Chilean, Mexican, Canadian, American, Pakistani, and South African ciders, and the list goes on. There are alcoholic ciders (known in some countries as hard cider and that contain between 2% and 8.5% of alcohol) and alcohol-free ciders. For the latter, the fermentation process is halted before sugar turns into alcohol, resulting in a sweet, foamy, and golden drink that is ideal for toasting if you do not drink alcohol and that is also kid-friendly. How Is Craft Cider Made?As happens with beer, the industrialization of the production of cider has led different associations to promote the consumption of craft cider. Real cider is prepared with 100% fermented apple juice with live yeast, either in a bottle or a cask. It must not be carbonated, pasteurized, or made from concentrates and it must be prepared with an artisanal process that consists of the following steps: Preparation: Apples are selected and washed, and the leaves and branches are trimmed.Crushing and pressing.Fermentation: Apple juice is placed in plastic barrels. No yeast is added and the juice is allowed to ferment during the winter at low temperature. Clarity, taste, and alcohol volume are checked at the beginning of the summer to know if the cider is ready.Mixing: Once the cider is on point, it is transferred to an oak barrel for aging, where it obtains woody notes and is mixed with aged cider from previous seasons.Mexican Craft CiderCervecería Itañeñe, in Mexico City, produces craft cider with a mix of hop and apples from Zacatlán, Puebla, and Chihuahua. Both in the aroma and taste of this cider, you will find predominant apple notes with a touch of hop and a slight honey note. It is the perfect cider for pairing with traditional turkey with apple salad or an apple strudel.MeadMead is a brew with honey instead of apples, like cider, or malt, like beer. Some meads feature different ingredients like fruits, spices, grains, or flowers, like hop. In Mexico, there are great examples of this drink, such as Ídolo de Ámbar, by Tiny Bastards in Guadalajara, Jalisco, which is a mead made with honey from avocado farms in Michoacán, a mix of yeasts, ale, and champagne for a dry and fruity taste. Moreover, it is fermented for over a year! It is excellent for pairing with paté, soft cheeses, dates, fish, smoked oysters, pasta, and even fruitcake.Beers That Won’t Make You Miss ChampagneIf you are into champagne, you must try craft beer. In 2020, Cervecería Patito from Mérida, Yucatán, launched Brut IPA Año Nuevo, a champagne beer with a citrusy, fruity, dry, and effervescent flavor. Produced with Mosaic hop, it has pine and citrus herb notes and tropical flavors. It is fragrant, pale, and with a light-to-medium body. Try it with soft cheeses like Brie or Camembert, seafood like oysters, and raw dishes like sashimi, as well as with pork loin or pork leg. No matter your choice, remember to support your local crafters during this season. Cheers and happy holidays!Translated by Miranda Perea
