Beauty from the Pantry: Using Natural Ingredients for Shiny Hair

We talked about exfoliating, we talked about lotions, so what shall we talk about now? Well let me ask you this, is your hair dull? Is it lacking that luster from your younger days? We all hear about the “crazy” things our friends do to their hair, but what if you could do it with items right from your pantry? I know that because I dye my hair, it can become dull, and lifeless, well it did until I discovered these neat tricks.

Before doing any of these things, wash and condition your hair like normal.


Ok so I like my coffee strong, so does my hair!

? Brew 8oz of espresso extra strong.
? Let it cool and pour over your hair and gently massage your scalp and hair
? Let it sit for twenty minutes.
? Rinse. Your hair will be beautifully shiny and have a little extra bounce and flair to it.

Caffeine for your hair, who would have thought?


We all know that honey is good to soothe your throat, and it’s a natural sweetener, but did you know that it can make your hair shine like a star?

? 6tsp of honey
? 2 cups of water
? Mix until well blended and water is thick
? Rub the mixture into your scalp and evenly through your hair
? Let sit for 15 minutes
? Rinse thorougly

Your hair will shine like a star!

Before doing any of the above please use caution. Do not use any of the ingredients if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.
