LediaMedia's Hair Fixes from the Kitchen

What You'll Need
  • Sprite
  • Sweet 'N Low
  • Vegetable juice
  • Liquid dish soap

How to Use Your Kitchen Items

Used as: hairspray and hair texturizer
How to use: Run a small amount of Sprite through damp hair, paying close attention to the hairs' roots.

Sweet 'N Low
Used for: taking the sting out of hair dye
How to use: Mix one packet of Sweet 'N Low into your hair coloring solution before applying to prevent skin irritation. Most hair dyes are alkaline and the acids in sugar substitutes help neutralize the pH level.

Vegetable juice
Used to: remove the greenish tint left behind from chlorine after a summer swim
How to use: In the shower, massage a can of V8 into your hair as if you are lathering shampoo. The red pigments in the tomato juice will warm up any ashy or green discoloring.

Liquid dish soap
Used to: get rid of product build up in your hair
How to use:
Rub a dime-sized amount of dish soap into your hair and rinse. Since it contains heavy-duty detergents, make sure to follow with a hydrating deep conditioner. How do you know if you have too much build up? You can't generate a lather with your regular shampoo. Liquid dish soap is super-clarifying and removes all traces of build up.
