Fanola Babes are a large part of our Fanola Fam, and during these times we wanted to check in with our babes and chat with them about how they're spending their time at home!
Meet our Fanola Babe, Alexis Gomez!
She's our babe from Newport Beach, CA. She's the ultimate #OOTD inspo, intelligent, a great cook, and is a pro at self-care! She gave us some insights on how she's taking care of herself during quarantine.
What are some ways that you've been self caring during this time?
In the evenings, I’m always cooking!! Teaching myself new recipes every night, I find it so therapeutic to unwind in the kitchen and make something yummy! I truly believe this is a time to master a craft... take advantage of all this free time and come out this quarantine a better chef, artist, or DIY master! I’ve been treating myself with a glass of wine or teaching myself how to make a signature cocktail... this week it’s a “Paloma” ... Here’s the recipe below :)
- kosher salt
- 1 grapefruit wedge
- ¼ cup fresh grapefruit juice
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- ¼ cup mescal or tequila
- ¼ cup club soda
What have you been doing to take care of your hair during these days spent at home?
What self care items do you tend to splurge on?
On how she's taking care of her mental health during these difficult times:
Breaking up my day — I try to find tasks to do around the house, wether it’s DIY projects or organizing my closet to get rid of stuff to sell on Poshmark, I suggest breaking up your day and, where possible, change your environment, even if it’s going outside for a run or walk. Going on my neighborhood beach walk in my LIFE SAVER! Seeing the ocean for my nightly walk relaxes my mind and definitely brings the peace!
Anyone who follows you can tell how fashionable you are! When did your love for fashion begin and how?
How would you describe your personal style?
On her favorite Fanola products and being a #Fanola Babe:
My go-to products are the Fanola No Orange shampoo, 24k Oro Therapy Mask, and Nutri Care Restructuring Serum! I use the No Orange shampoo 2-3 times a week to keep my brassy tones out of my blondes and it’s a game changer!! The 24k hair mask is also my go-to hair mask that keeps my hair silky smooth and I use it 3-5 times a week because I love how soft it leaves my hair. The Nutri Care Oil I put every time I get out of the shower, a couple drops goes a long way and helps to keep my shiny and silky!
My favorite thing about being a #FanolaBabe is the involvement and sense of community I have working with this brand! Fanola makes you feel like you are part of a family and I love that sense of closeness and attachment that I have with this wonderful brand! They are always keeping you involved with fun events, campaign and keeping us close and connected! (shout out to my girl Adrianna from the social team! ) #FanolaBabe for life!!!
