Here are some tips to getting your hair looking beautiful -
“1. Tame itty-bitty flyaways by skimming over them with a spooley makeup brush dipped in hair gel.
2. Mash a rich hair mask - Mash avocado with a bit of olive oil, then apply to just shampooed hair for 10 minutes.
3. To wash away product build up, combine half a cup of apple cider vinegar with juice from a quarter of a lemon, and work the mix through dry hair pre-shampoo.
4. Use tea to up hair’s shine. Brew a pot of any blend, let it cool, then apply it as a final rinse at the end of your shower.
5. Nix oily roots with a sprinkle of cornstarch. [This also keep baby’s bums cool during the summer]. It’s finer than baby powder, so it’s easier to blend into your hair.”
