Beauty DIY: Off-Duty Hair with Natural Oils
Have you ever scrolled through your Instagram feed and basically died over all the bloggers and models who had killer hair? You know the kind, effortlessly wind-swept, pin straight or frizz-free? Been there. Know the feels. But what you may not have been aware of is how easy it can be to achieve this look without the trip to the hair salon and without having a personal hair stylist on speed dial (if that’s still a thing?). Simply through using the right natural oils you can get yourself some luscious locks that are sure to instill envy among your friends. Oh, not to mention, easily get passed off as another blogger pic when people casually scroll past your post next time…
Those Waves Though
If you’re craving hair that has volume but doesn’t go to Rizzo-from-Grease status, then this look is for you. You’ll get a nice body wave that is not only modern but natural.
What You’ll Need:
1 cup warm water
1 tbsp sea salt
1 tsp Epsom salt
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 Spray bottle 2 fl. Oz Glass Amber
To get your spray made, add warm water (from the stove, not boiling hot) with the salts in a bowl until they dissolve. Then add in your tablespoon of coconut oil (stirred until melted). Voila! You have a beach wave remedy made. Pour into a spray bottle (2 fl. oz glass amber is perfect) and use at your desire.
After shampooing/conditioning your hair, on towel-dried hair, spray this remedy all over. Comb through and lightly scrunch your hair in an upward motion. Let air dry.
Frizz-Free and Happy
If there’s one thing worse than humidity, it has to be the frizz that comes with it. You can always welcome the world’s worst hair day when moisture is in the air. But have no fear, a frizz-free formula is here! Argan Oil Moroccan (100% Pure Organic) Liquid Gold, which is known extremely well for its superb skin benefits, can also help tame your mane and battle against the unplanned weather.
After showering, and styling hair, apply 2-3 drops of argan oil to your hair. Add to your hands, and rub together. Smooth from roots to ends, and wait to see the results!
You know when you take all that time to straighten your hair and somehow it never stays? Yeah, that’s pretty frustrating. What if we told you that there’s a way to solve this common hair woe? The answer is simple: coconut oil. Yep, not only good for beach waves, this versatile oil can help smooth the hair to lock in your smooth ‘do longer.
What You’ll Need:
3-5 tbsp of Coconut Oil 100% Natural for Skin & Hair
1 Metal Stirrer
Mix the measured coconut oil into in a saucepan on the stove over low heat. Melt and then proceed with “The Steps” below.
This requires slightly more prep than the other styles, but nevertheless, will deliver awe-inspiring results. When Coconut Oil is used as a hair treatment, the hair becomes smooth. So…before showering, apply the melted oil to all over your hair. Make it so your head is saturated. Then, pin your hair up and place a shower cap over it. Let the oil stay on for 2 hours to overnight. Use a sulfate-free shampoo to wash and then style.
Health & Happiness,
