Sprinkle Me Mane


2012-01-05 11:10:44.0
So, I woke up this morning and my hair was just not making the cut. My hair is flat ironed and it desperately needs to be washed, but I had no time to wash it. I heard of dry shampoo, but I never used it before. Then I remembered, one of my really good friends told me that she put a little bit of baby powder in her hair and it gave her some bounce back! My only problem was I didn't have baby powder...I only had foot powder O_o. I thought what the heck, powder is powder!.lol! I didn't cover my whole head of course, I just took a little sprinkle in my palm and rubbed it through...and to my astonishment it worked!! Now, it didn't replace a shampoo...but it will definitely buy you some time! The whole powder thing prompted me to find some more household beauty finds and here they are! Hope you find something you could use!

Much love,


1. Toothpaste
Have yellow nails? Scrub them with toothpaste to remove stains and add shine. You can also add a few drops of lemon juice for extra whitening; it’s a natural bleaching agent.

2. Eggs
Strengthen hair by creating an egg yolk-and-olive oil hair mask. The protein in the egg yolk will toughen up tresses, while the olive oil will act as a conditioning agent.

3. Cooking Spray
Rather than spray quick-dry oil on your nails, reach for a cooking spray instead. Just be sure it’s the original, unflavored version or you might get grossed out by garlic-scented cuticles.

4. Yogurt
If you burn your forehead using a curling iron, slather plain yogurt on the wound—the coolness will help with swelling and the yogurt will reduce redness and speed the healing process.

5. Paper Towels
Don’t have rollers on hand? Wrap hair in twisted paper towels; you can use more or less leaflets depending on how large or small you want the diameter of your curls to be.

6. Rubberbands
Make room for an expanding waistline by hooking a rubber band through the buttonhole of your pants; secure the other side to the button, and wear a tunic top to cover up your handiwork.

7. Unused Stockings
Create a chic shrug by taking a pair of tights or stockings and cutting off the feet (or use a pair of footless tights to save a step). Place arms where legs would normally go and—voila!—you’ve created a sleek spring alternative to a shawl or cardigan. Take it a step further by cutting slashes into the fabric, à la Monique Lhuillier’s ballerina-inspired fall 2009 collection.
