Wash, Rinse, Repeat - NOT! and Other Great Hair Care Tips

marin / FreeDigitalPhotos.net

There is no need to wash you hair twice like the bottle says. Unless you want to strip all the natural oil out of your hair and you like to washing your money down the drain.

Yes, I went from fear to hair. :)

We all know that aloe vera calms and relieves sun burns, rashes and other skin irritation. Some even use aloe vera as a face and body lotion, but did you know that it can also be used to calm down frizzy or dry hair? Put aloe juice (found at most grocery stores) in a spray bottle, use it on wet hair as a de-frizzer. Or you can use a tiny amount on dry hair as a gel.

Don't pay the high prices for high-end shampoos that are specially formulated for chemically treated hair. Baby Shampoo will treat your hair just as gently.

To add shine and bounce to your hair, you should remove all traces of styling product and conditioner every six weeks. Either use a clarifying shampoo or make your own clarifying rinse just by mixing 1 tbsp. of baking soda and 2 tbsp of white vinegar. Work into your hair, then rinse thoroughly.

Have you ever gotten your hair cut and or colored and loved it but then when you went back and asked for the same thing your stylist looked at you like a dear caught in the head lights? Next time you get your hair done, take a picture on you phone right after. Then when you go back you can show your stylist the picture. Trust me, she'll thank you and you'll walk out with what you wanted.

To fix flat hair, use flat beer. Mix 3 tbsp of beer with 1/2 cup of warm water. After you shampoo your hair, rub in the beer/water mixture. Let it sit for a couple minutes and then rinse it out.

These are just a few of my favorite hair care tips. I have a more that I'll post later. But until then...
