Beauty From Home!

Beauty Recipes
From The Kitchen

If you have spent the summer in the sun and the water, it's time to start reviving your hair for fall. If your hair is dry, damaged, and has lost its shine, you can revitalize it with a homemade hair mask. These masks use healthy ingredients from your kitchen to hydrate and rejuvenate your hair.
Banana avocado mask

It doesn't sound appetizing at all, but you aren't supposed to eat it. Instead, slather your hair in this rich mask to bring back its luster.

•1 medium banana
•1 egg
•1/2 avocado
•2 Tbsp honey
•3 Tbsp buttermilk
•3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1.Mash banana, egg and avocado in a small bowl.
2.Add remaining ingredients and stir until well combined.
3.Apply to hair from roots to tips.
4.Leave in for 30 minutes and then wash out with a moisturizing shampoo.
5.Double the recipe for long hair.
6.Use once a month to maintain healthy hair.

Yogurt hair mask

For dry, frizzed out hair, this recipe will bring back the moisture, leaving your hair silky and manageable.

•1 egg white
•1/4 cup plain organic yogurt
•1/4 cup mayonnaise

1.Beat egg white until frothy.
2.Mix with yogurt and mayonnaise.
3.Massage into wet hair.
4.Cover with plastic shower cap or plastic wrap.
5.Leave in for 30 minutes, then wash out with a mild shampoo.
6.Rinse with very cold water.

Fall is Here!

I am sooo excited fall is finally here! I love the cool mornings and the warm afternoons! I was even able to play 18 holes of golf this wee,k while being surrounded by beautiful fall leaves! It was awesome! And I can't even tell you how much i LOVE all the cute squirrels that run around my apartment complex with their cheeks full of nuts!
Fall Fashion is one of my favorites too! I love all the browns, coppers, reds, and golds! Sweatshirts, boots, scarves....the list goes on and on! So to celebrate fall i decided i would post some fall 2011 hair trends! Enjoy!
•Two trends that come back season after season are the timeless ponytail and the loose, side braid. For fall 2011, the ponytail gets a glam, sleek, strict update (Marc Jacobs, Gucci, Aquilano.Rimondi, Louis Vuitton, Valentino, Max Azria, Lela Rose, Versace, Paul & Joe). The result is impeccable, almost perfect, with a hair section wrapped around the elastic band securing the ponytail. As for the braid,make sure to keep it loose and messy, like a bed head braid! Add feathers to either look for a trendy flair!
