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.

    This is going to sound completely cliche, but the best thing is to just be yourself. You'll make friends no problem. People can tell when you're being genuine or not, and they definitely appreciate you for who you are more than if you tried to be someone else. You got this, it'll be a fun and exciting experience. :)

    On a typical day I wear a pair of ripped jeans and either a hoodie or jacket, and a snapback. The opposite would probably be a dress lmao.

    I also love expensive clothing. Brand names are my thing. But I always shop either during sale times or at second hand stores. Sales are my best friend, honestly. It might be frustrating to wait, but it's worth it in the end. Shop only on sale racks in big stores, and scout out smaller second hand stores that often carry brand names, never worn, but for a cheaper price.
