Hair Repair Recipe:
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
Mix ingredients in a small bowl until they are well combined on dry, unwashed hair. Apply the mixture starting at your roots and combing through your hair to distribute evenly. Clip your hair up and wait 30 to 60 minutes. Rinse mixture out of your hair and shampoo well, use conditioner if you would like.
And that's it!! I haven't officially tried the avocado hair recipe but I will let you know which one is better as soon as I try it. Have a great day! Spa happy!

Ya know how people write about stuff they've tried on Pinterest? Well, I figured I would start it up because I use a lot of the homemade tutorials I've found on Pinterest.
This week I decided to pick laundry. I make my own detergent and I would never go back to regular detergent. Mostly because I save a TON of money. And no liquid mess! There are tutorials for liquid homemade detergent, if you'd like. But I feel like it takes up more space and is harder to clean up. Not to mention you might have to get a pot specifically for making your detergent if you go liquid. As for me, I just put it in a huge Mason jar and use about two tablespoons every load. (I work at a factory, my clothes get really dirty and gross.) I love that it's more natural too. You know exactly what's going into it. Here's the recipe I use:
I also use my own fabric softener! This is an even bigger money saver. Fabric softener costs quite a bit for how little you get. I will admit though, this softener starts to smell more like vinegar as it sits so I'll probably make a little less next time. The conditioner I used was strawberry scented (from Suave) so that might also make a difference in how the vinegar reacts to it. I keep mine in a pitcher with an airtight top. Here's the recipe for fabric softener:
One more thing; dryer sheets. There's another tutorial using sponges and an airtight container that is easier than this one, but I'm weird about sponges. You can even use the softener you just made! Here's a tutorial got coffee filter dryer sheets:
If you would like to look up the other tutorials I've mentioned, feel free! These are just the ones I use that I find good for me. Thanks for checking it out! Next week I have a shaving cream/exfoliator for you to try. :)
