Hair Fixes from the Kitchen

Big hair, big fun.
Being a hippie at heart in these modern times, to me at least, means finding as many uses for the things I buy as possible. I absolutely dig green cleaning products and beauty solutions that are good to Mother Earth (and my pocketbook).

Here are 5 eco and wallet-friendly hair fixes for you to try using items found in your kitchen. The best part about this list? You may have all of these items in your casa already!

Say lay lay to bad hair days! Sounds rad, right? Let's get started.

What You'll Need
  • Orange juice
  • Lemon juice
  • Honey
  • Olive Oil
  • Gelatin
  • Flour

How To Use Your Kitchen Items

Orange and lemon juice
Used as: natural highlight booster
How to use: Spritz your hair with a mixture of orange and lemon juice before heading out in the sun. It leaves your hair with warmer, more golden highlights when mixed.

Honey
Used as: natural hair gel
How to use: Dissolve 1 tsp of honey (or agave nectar) into 1/2 cup of water, pour it into a spray bottle, then mist it over your hair.

Olive oil
Used for: removing excess glue left behind from extensions
How to use: All you have to do is smooth a few drops of it over the tracks of the extensions and let it soak for 15 to 20 minutes. The glue will be gone when you rinse it out! 

Gelatin
Used as: protein treatment for fighting split ends
How to use: Dissolve a packet of clear gelatine into hot water. Massage the warm solution through your hair and leave it in for 30 minutes. Rinse and say hello to stronger hair! Gelatine can also be used to make DIY pore strips.

Flour
Used as: a dry shampoo
How to use: If you don't have time to wash your locks, sprinkle some flour on your roots, let it sop up oil for ten seconds, then dust away the excess with a makeup brush.
