Many cosmetics are full of products that are harmful to your skin and your health. Economical, ecological and organic, these are the beauty habits that speak to us.

There are several recipes for making a sugar scrub. The most effective is to mix :

  • six tablespoons of brown sugar
  • six tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

The mixture is applied to the face or body by gently massaging the skin and then rinsing with warm water. Olive oil gives a wonderful complexion to the skin, in addition to making it smooth and silky. Its detoxifying and rejuvenating properties are attractive benefits.

  • Cinnamon powder
  • Potato starch

Coconut Oil Hair Mask

Using coconut oil is a great way to make your hair soft, shiny and healthy. Throw away your conditioners and hair creams, you don’t need them anymore! A jar of unrefined coconut oil is a perfect multi-functional moisturizer. For a little extra: add castor oil to the base of your hair. This product, which you can buy at a drugstore or any health food store, helps hair grow faster. The results are impressive.

Baking soda shampoo

Manufacturers are looking for products that smell good and lather up a lot, and we don’t realize that we are using extremely harsh products. Baking soda will get rid of any shampoo or conditioner residue, and your hair will have a natural shine after just a few treatments.

First, mix:

  • 1 part baking soda
  • 3 parts water.

You can double or triple the recipe depending on the length of your hair. Then, Apply the mixture to your hair, leave on for 2-3 minutes, then rinse. Use baking soda in place of your regular shampoo and your hair will be forever grateful.

Conditioner with vinegar

Hair has a slightly acidic pH, very close to that of an apple cider vinegar conditioner. However, many hair products we use, such as most shampoos, bleaches, dyes and perms, are highly alkaline. When we rinse our hair with apple cider vinegar, we help rebalance the natural pH of the hair, removing some of the build-up (excess alkalinity) resulting from the use of these products.

Chamomile Highlights

Try to boil a cup of water and add dried chamomile flowers or 2 or 3 tea bags. Let it cool and then pour the liquid over your hair. Let it dry in the sun for about thirty minutes, or until your hair is dry. Wash your hair, which should already be a little lighter. Repeat once a week, on your whole head or just on certain strands, and you’ll be surprised how much lighter it gets.
