I thought I had shiny hair down to a science until now. From lemon juice to avocado conditioners, I long ago crowned myself a queen of DIY hair, but apparently, I was missing something huge all of this time. I recently decided to approach the non-shininess of my winter hair in a different way and I can't believe the results I got...without having to buy anything!
Any time you can handle your beauty regime without chemicals or store-bought product, you're doing yourself and the environment a favor. Further your green beauty by trying this sure-way-to-shine formula:
1. Add a shot glass worth of vodka to your deep conditioner (if you don't have a deep conditioner on hand, try mayonnaise, eggs, avocado, or honey.)
2. Stir in a few drops of your favorite essential oil.
3. Spread through hair and rinse after 20 minutes.
The alcohol lowers the pH level of your hair, which helps the cuticles to close. Meanwhile, the oil will instantly boost the shine of your hair.
Believe me, this one works like magic!
