Wednesday's Beauty Tip


Beauty Tip of the Week

Homemade Stand Saver


Here's a fun DIY recipe I found in this month's issue of Self Magazine for you to try if you have dry or frizzy hair, or if you want to give your hair some extra silk and shine. 


Ingredients:
3 tbsp of Jojoba Oil
3 drops of Lavender Oil
3 drops of Chamomile Oil

Mix ingredients together and apply to scalp with fingertips. Massage well for 1 to 2 minutes, then wrap hair in a wet towel and let sit for 20 minutes. Then rinse thoroughly. 

Jojoba Oil is almost identical to the skin's sebum (the stuff that our glands secrete to hydrate our hair and skin) so it's great as a post winter reviver. Plus naturally soothing lavender and chamomile oil will calm your abused scalp and hair.

  3. My hair is always dry, but honestly part of it is because I am too lazy to use hair products. Although, I love for my hair to look good I don't always put the work in. lol
    I have found that tea tree oil works well for my hair too.

  5. Really? I have tea tree oil but I use it for my skin though. Do you use straight tea tree oil or is it an ingredient in your product?

  6. Hi there! I love jojoba oil and to be honest, I use it as my daily leave in product. My curly hair loves it rather than any other product that has some synthetic ingredients in it. What saddens me is that jojoba oil isn't so easily available here in my country! I'd love to try a jojoba oil soak, but using 3tbsp of jojoba oil for my long hair won't be enough and it will be way too expensive to do so! So instead I usually use Olive oil mixed with a bit of jojoba :)

    I'm a new reader! Just followed you :) I hope you can check out my beauty blog too!

  7. Oh wow, really? Well tht makes sense since there's so many different ingredients in hair products, natural stuff is the best. Olive oil is also great for hair too.
