Homemade Hair and Beauty Products

Hair and beauty supplies can get pretty expensive but we all want to look our best, right? So what do you do when you're low on cash but still want to turn heads with your stunning locks? Why not try some home beauty remedies? They're quick, easy and best of all, you'll have most of the ingredients in your kitchen. Check 'em out!

Tomatoes and Your Hair

Many things can affect the tone and smell of your hair. Whether it's a green hue from too much chlorine or an overpowering stench from a run-in with a skunk, there's one thing that will have your hair good as new in a matter of minutes - Tomatoes. You can apply tomatoes to your hair in a variety of ways, tomato paste, sauce or even tomato juice should work wonders. The acidity in the tomatoes helps to balance the Ph levels in your hair, bringing back its natural color and smell!

Lemons, Chamomile and Your Hair

Rinsing your hair with a mixture of water and lemon juice can help to lighten your hair color. This works best on already light hair (light brown and blonde) and can be enhanced if you leave the mixture in your hair and then head out into the sun. Do not do this if you are worried about your hair going really light though! You can produce a similar effect by rinsing your hair with freshly brewed chamomile tea - just make sure it's cooled down before pouring it onto your scalp.

Coffee and Your Hair

To give brown hair a warmer glow, brew one strong cup of espresso and let cool completely. Pour the coffee onto dry hair and leave it on for 20 minutes. Now rinse it out. Your hair should shine and glow like never before.

Egg and Your Hair

You may have heard that massaging a raw egg into you scalp and hair can help control dandruff and make your hair shiny. While eggs will probably give your locks a bit of extra sheen, they aren't the cure-all for dandruff that peeps make them out to be. If you want healthier looking hair, just keep up with your protein intake - hair growth and health depend on the protein levels in your body.

Homemade Hairspray for Your Hair
Chop one lemon into four pieces. If you have dry hair, you can do the same with an orange. Place the lemon or orange in a pot with 2 cups water. Boil until half of the initial amount of water remains. Cool, strain, and place in a spray bottle. Store in the refrigerator. By adding one ounce of rubbing alcohol as a preservative the spray can be stored for up to two weeks un-refrigerated. If you find the hairspray is too sticky, just add more water.

Static and Your Hair
Most of us have experienced a day where our hair stands on end and there's seems to be no cure for the attack of the killer static! Fear not my flyaway plagued friends - there's no need to run out and buy those crazy-expensive flyaway remedies from the drug store or salon. Just grab a dryer sheet (those sheets your mom tosses in the dryer to make your clothes softer), and rub it from your roots to your ends. Voila! No more static flyaways.

    Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

    You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says
