When at the Living Green Expo I was drawn to the booths that had personal care products. I have always loved lotions, creams, conditioners, perfumes, anything to make you feel and look good. But lately I have been so busy I haven’t taken very good care of myself. I decided I needed to pay more attention. After all feeling good is a huge part of mental health.
The prices were way out of my league however. Then I remembered my handy book Natural Beauty at Home. I came home and reviewed it and came up with a list of projects. I need more Cold Cream and I want to try some lip gloss. Some time this week I will do a facial and today I did a hair mask.
My split ends had gotten really bad and I had taken to the exact same hair style all day every day. So yesterday I went to get a good trim and added some layers. The ends felt so smooth. I want to keep it that way and occasionally wear my hair down so in the interest of hair health I made
Perfect Hair Conditioner
1 tsp almond oil
1 tsp avocado oil
1 tsp olive oil
1 egg yolk
1 TBSP honey
1 TBSP lemon juice
Mix all ingredients together and stir thoroughly. Massage into hair and scalp and wrap hair in plastic wrap or use a shower cap and leave conditioner on for 15 minutes.
(not so attactive yet!)
Shampoo your hair and rinse well.
I didn’t have avocado oil so I left it out and I put a whole egg in by mistake but otherwise it went really well. It smelled so yummy. One word to the wise though since it has an egg in it do not use hot water to rinse your hair. I thought I had it cool enough not to cook the egg and still had a couple of pieces of egg to pick out when I was finished but not too bad. My hair felt super moisturized and other then the almond oil and avocado oil most of the ingredients are already in your kitchen. Way cheaper and more fun then some of those expensive treatments. Now I just have to keep it up. The book recommends a deep conditioner once a week and has several options.
