Tender Love & Hair Care

Hey doll faces! Hope your Tuesday is fabulous! It's almost closing time ;) Gotta love when it's about the middle of the week and you can already start to taste the weekend!  At least I am! A quick reminder about the Model Casting...it's THIS THURSDAY at 7:30pm at Sophie and Trey! Come out! It'll be a fun night and the Spring Showcase will be a night to remember so you definitely want to be involved!

Don't miss either of these fun and fabulous events!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well it's been such a full day of fun! I finished working in the store around 1pm and then headed over to Kristin's house to color Ryan and Kristin's hubby's hair. Just a few highlights for the man and highlights/lowlights for Ryan. Yes, I do hair. I am a licensed cosmetologist in Florida ;)

We were chatting and the ladies wanted to know of a good deep conditioning treatment. Salon keratin treatments are amazing but pricey. We all need to condition our hair and keep it healthy! Sometimes we neglect it and tend to just color, highlight, color, highlight and never take the time to really put some love into our hair. Damaged hair should be deep conditioned thoroughly at least once a week. Drinking lots of water helps you and your hair stay hydrated!!!

Here's a few natural fixes for your hair care problems!

Hair Care Solutions

Coffee Grounds in Conditioner
This one is really simple. Instead of throwing old coffee grounds away, toss them into your conditioner to make your hair extra shiny. That’s all it takes! 

Replace Conditioner with Vinegar
To get rid of the usual problems with hair: build up, dullness and just lackluster, replace your conditioner with vinegar 1-4 times a month, depending on your hair type. Just use it as you need it. And, don’t worry about buying the best stuff for the best results, common white vinegar will do the trick as well as any other vinegar.

Olive Oil as Hair Moisturizer
It’s easy to see how oil can moisturize your hair. It’s simple to use as well. Simply cover your hair in olive oil and leave it in for 30-45 minutes. You can also wrap it in plastic wrap to keep it from dripping. Some also believe it enhances the effect.

Treat Choline-Damaged Hair
Mix together 1 egg, 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 1/4 cup of a peeled cucumber. Cover you hair with the mixture and leave it on for 10-20 minutes. You’ll see your hair return to normal almost immediately.

Lemons or Oranges for Fine Hair Hairspray
Use Lemons for dry hair and oranges for a stronger hold. Chop up the entire piece of fruit in a bowl as to not lose any juice. Boil the fruit with 2 cups of water until soupy or to when the liquid has been significantly reduced. Strain through a cloth and pour into a spray bottle for use. The citrus will hold the hair and not damage it due to the fact that there is no alcohol.

Degrease Oily Hair With Lemons and Aloe
Mix together 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 1/2 teaspoon aloe vera. Mix the mixture in with a normal serving of shampoo. It will get rid of your oiliness in your hair with one shower.

Smooth Fizzy Hair With Honey
Add a tablespoon of honey to a liter of water. After shampooing, rinse your hair with this concoction to tame your frizz.

Replace Conditioner with Baking Soda
Want to be more like a guy and only use one thing to clean your hair? Then just add baking soda to your shampoo. It will remove build up and make hair shinier. And to make it even better, you can use it everyday.

So next time your in a bind with your hair, look here to see what you can use at home to help you! Coloring and bleaching definitely leads to dry, damaged hair! Most of us color our hair but even if you don't you always want to condition and keep your hair at it's best! These masks are a great solution plus so easy and cheap!

Homemade Hair Masks

1.  Avocado Deep Conditioner Hair Mask- Using 1 small jar of mayonnaise and 1/2 avocado.  Mix all ingredients, smooth into head being careful to work it to the ends,  Use shower cap or plastic wrap to seal body heat in and leave on for 20 minutes.

2.  Mayonnaise Your Hair - Apply 1/2 cup of mayonnaise to your dry hair, work in really well, cover your head with a plastic wrap,  and let it set for about 15 minutes.

3.  Olive Oil Hair Mask - Combine 2 tablespoon honey and 3 tablespoon olive oil together. Apply thoroughly and then cover with plastic wrap and set for 15 minutes.

Try one of these and let me know what you think! I'm a fan of the olive oil but I'm definitely going to try the Avocado and Mayo ones! Definitely going to be turning my Sundays into "Me Days" and all out DIY Spa Sundays ;) I like this idea lol

Happy Tuesday! Have a great rest of your day and I'll chat with you all tomorrow!!!


Love, Dani
