Frugal home hair products

Via Beauty Snob, I learned some awesome natural stuff you can find in your own home that is suppose to work magic on your hair! Somebody try and let me know if they work!

· Baking soda works wonders in your hair. While your hair is dry before you take a shower, mix one tablespoon of baking soda with a cup of warm water, mix thoroughly and work it into your hair by hand and with a comb. Then jump in the shower and rinse it out.

· Salt is the secret to that windblown messy hair look that many people strive for. The salt dries in your hair and leaves it full bodied and sexy. You can get the same look by adding a tablespoon of salt to 4 oz of water in an empty spray bottle. After washing and conditioning your hair simply spray salt solution over hair and allow to air dry.

Apple Cider Vinegar is natures' answer soft shiny hair. Mix two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with a cup of warm water and work it into your hair. Then jump in the shower and rinse it out.

· Lemon juice can be added to your conditioner and applied directly to hair. Mix one tablespoon of lemon juice with one tablespoon of conditioner and apply to your hair. If you want to lighten your hair naturally spend some time in the sun with your hair damp with this solution. If not then skip to the next step in which you rinse it our thoroughly in the shower.

· Real Mayonnaise is an amazing hair conditioner. To use simply dampen your hair, apply a thick layer of mayonnaise from your scalp to the ends of your hair. Comb it through your hair and then sit back for twenty minutes and relax, then rise and shampoo as usual. (If you have kids and they are ever exposed to head lice, the very best treatment comes right out your kitchen too. Use one cup of mayonnaise and add a teaspoon of tea tree oil and mix. Apply to the hair the same way but add a plastic cap or plastic wrap to the head and leave it for twenty to sixty minutes and rise.)

· Beer is a great rinse conditioner that leaves your hair more manageable. Simply bring a bottle of flat warm beer into the shower with you. Wash your hair with your regular shampoo and then rinse with beer. Rinse again thoroughly with water unless you want to smell like old beer later in the day.
