4.  Baking Soda Hair Cleansing Mud – Mix 1 heaping Tbsp. of Baking Soda and 3-5 drops of essential oils of your choice (lavender, patchouli, rosemary, sweet orange are some of mine:not necessarily all together) with enough water to make a paste.  Mix this in the shower. It took a little getting use too, with there being no suds.

5.  Natural Chemical Free Shampoo – Use these three ingredients and use as a natural DIY shampoo, ¼ cup distilled water  ( deionized water is ok ), ¼ cup liquid castile soap ( I use unscented ), and ½ teaspoon jojoba, grapeseed or other light vegetable oil.

  1. The Mayonnaise hair treatment is amazing for dry and brittle hair, I just love it and try to do it once a week since I color my hair every 8 weeks or so. For really beautiful shiny hair hair try pouring vinegar (natural is best) over your hair after you condition. It will make your hair look gorgeous and super healthy. The only downfall is the odor, (which is maybe similar to how the Listerine works too, never tried it!) but once you try it, you will swear by it.

  2. Thank you Jenn! This is great amazing information and exactly what we need to know. {{knuckle bumps}}

  3. Okay this hair tip is going to sound crazy – and I haven’t seen it written anywhere in the blogosphere so I’m going to put it out there. If you have oily hair you need to try this. Wash your hair with a cheap clear shampoo. I use Suave Clean & Clear. It was like 99 cents. Anyway wash your hair with that shampoo, rinse, and repeat if desired. Then get a bottle of Listerine. Yes, Listerine! My friend who told me this said to use the brown kind. I don’t know why. Anyway I have medium length hair, so I use about 2 cap fulls. Just tilt your head back, pour in the Listerine, work it into your hair for a few minutes, and then rinse thoroughly. Then style — I don’t even need to use any other products on my hair when I “Listerine” it. I have struggled with oily hair forever and nothing seemed to help until I tried this.

  4. Make sure your readers know that on that baking soda one that it should only be done once in a while. It is a clarifying technique used to strip off any harmful residue from other shampoos and hairsprays…etc, but it really should not be used daily or even weekly. Maybe like once a month.

    And Silicone based products freakin’ rock. They don’t actually repair damage nothing can really repair hair damage, but they coat the hair and keep it from getting further damaged. It will help protect the hair from styling aids such as flat iron, blow drier and even help protect hair against the harmful damage from the sun. You can also recognize silicone based products from words like dimethicone, methicone…. Silicone is very expensive, so they use these that are made up of silicone derived ingredients.

    Great work! I love these.
