When summer comes around, I sometimes have an urge to go blonde. Not totally blonde, just blond-er. The problem is that highlights are pretty pricey, and who has time for a trip to the salon when there is so much fun to be had in the summer months? If you want your hair to have a beachy, sun-kissed look this summer, here is the natural way to do so!

  1. Create your own salt spray: Mix a bit of salt with water, spray it on your hair (which opens the cuticle), and then go lay in the sun. This will fade your hair into a lighter color.images (1)
  2. Grab some lemon juice: Before heading out into the sun, add some lemon juice to your strands. The acid in the juice opens your cuticle, same as the salt water example above, leaving it open to the sun’s rays.
  3. Mix lemon and orange: If you are going for more golden, subtle highlights, mix orange and lemon juice together and do the same steps as above.

These DIY highlight concoctions are so easy to make, and fun to implement! Spray stuff on my hair, then go lay in the sun? Easy peasy.

I bet when you saw the title of this blog you went “Whaaaaaat?!” I am all about “no heat curls” and I love finding new ways to do them. No heat curls are the best way to give your hair body and curl without damaging it. Here is how to use baby socks to curl your hair!

  1. Go to the store and buy a package of infant socks. Your hair should be damp when you start the hair curling process.NO-HEAT-CURLS-WITH-BABY-SOCK-200x300
  2. Take a section of your hair and brush through it. Spray the section with a spritz of hairspray. The smaller the section, the tighter the curl. I prefer large curls!
  3. Place the ends of the hair across the toes of the sock and roll the sock up towards your head. When you get to the scalp, take the opening of the sock and turn it inside out over the hair, just like you would attach two socks together when folding laundry.
  4. Repeat this process over your whole head. You may look a little goofy for a little while, but in the morning when you take those socks out you will have beautiful bouncy curls!

So, go to sleep, and in the morning you will have curly hair without heat! Try this sweet trick out and comment below to tell me how you like it! Who knew baby socks could serve such an interesting purpose?

Keeping your hair moisturized is one of the most important things you can do for it. It keeps you ends from becoming dry and brittle and splitting. There are a lot of leave in conditioners out there, but the only problem is that you don’t know what kind of chemicals are in them! Here is a recipe to make your own leave-on conditioner for cheap, AND you know exactly what is going into it so you don’t have to worry about nasty chemicals.mixology-spray-380x260

Leave in conditioner is actually really easy to make, and it is so much cheaper than buying it. Fill an empty spray bottle with 1 part conditioner and 4 parts water. Shake it up to mix it all together. Spray the mixture onto your damp hair when you feel like it needs some extra TLC.

See? How easy was that! Now YOU can make your very own leave-in conditioner!
