Hair Fixes from the Medicine Cabinet

I always feel like MacGyver when I find a new use for a household item. The more common the item is, the more of a 'why didn't I think of this before' the moment becomes.

That being said... 

I'm back with more hair fixes using items you would find in your medicine cabinet. What's an added bonus of this list? You most likely have all of these items already! Let's get started, shall we? 

LediaMedia's Hair Fixes from the Medicine Cabinet

What You'll Need
  • Old sunscreen
  • Lip balm
  • Ibuprofen
  • Spray starch
  • Wine corks
  • Toothbrush 

How to Use These Medicine Cabinet Items 

Old sunscreen
Used as: a frizz fighter
How to use: Rub a pea-sized dab of old sunscreen between your fingers and smooth around the hairline to tame flyaways.

Lip balm
Used as: a hair wax to fight frizz along the hairline and add definition to your style
How to use: Rub a small amount of lip balm between your fingers and apply to the hairline.

Ibuprofen
Used to: soothe dry and itchy scalps
How to use: Crush a few ibuprofen pills into a powder and mix them into your shampoo.

Spray starch 
Used to: give your hair texture and major lift
How to use: Apply spray starch to dry roots and then blow-dry. 

Wine corks
Used as: mini hair rollers
How to use: Wash and towel dry your tresses, wind 1/2 inch sections of hair around the corks, and secure them to the scalp with bobby pins. Blast them with a hairdryer, then unravel and shake out for some serious summer waves.

Toothbrush 
Used for: hair style maintenance
How to use: Use it for back-combing of small, strategic areas of hair. Use it for root touch-ups. Spritz a little hairspray onto a toothbrush and glide it along your hairline for a clean, sleek pony-tail.
