Money-Saving Kitchen Recipes For Beautiful Hair


While it may be fun to go shopping and pick up the best products we can for our hair, that may not always be a budget friendly option, or a financially savvy one. So here are a couple of money-saving homemade hair care solutions that start with herbs and other ingredients from your kitchen.

Rosemary is wonderful  for thinning hair. Regularly massaging the scalp with a rosemary-infused oil has been study-proven to strengthen hair follicles and promote hair growth, according to holistic aesthetician Stephanie Tourles, author of Organic Body Care Recipes.

In a small saucepan, warm 1 cup of oil (can be olive oil, castor oil, grapeseed or sweet almond) and add a few sprigs of rosemary. Let cool, then massage the oil lightly into your scalp with fingertips. Make small circles all around your scalp. This will boost circulation and help hair growth. After you have massaged in the oil, wrap your hair in a warm towel for about 15 minutes. Then shampoo and condition as normal.

You can keep the rosemary oil in the refrigerator for one week.

And if your hair is looking a bit flat, try the old Baking Soda trick! Too much oil or build-up from hair products can cause hair to look limp and lifeless. Baking Soda works wonderfully to absorb the excess oil and bring back some bonce.

Just add a few teaspoons of baking soda to shampoo (the dollop or so of shampoo in your hand that you plan to wash your hair with,) and massage into your scalp. Rinse and condition as usual. You should notice much more lift at the roots --and more bounce and fullness to your hair.

If dry frizzy hair is a problem, look no further than avocados and olive oil for help! Take an avocado and mash it up. Add about 1/4 cup of olive oil and blend until smooth and creamy. Apply the mask to your hair (dry hair) and massage it into the hair and scalp. Wrap your hair in a warm towel and put your feet up for about 20 minutes. Rinse and shampoo as usual. Do this twice a week for soft, shiny, and smooth hair.

Things To Do With Empty Cans of Soup

All of these ideas start with a clean empty soup can with no jagged edges. For some you may want to peel off the labels, others you might just leave the labels on!



1.. Having a picnic? Use empty Campbells soup cans as utensil holders for plastic forks and spoons on the picnic tables. (leave labels on ..adds a colorful unique touch!)

2.. Make a Halloween Decoration. Cover a soup can in black construction paper or fabric. Add some cut out eyes. For wings, color a paper plate black, Cut the plate in half. For each half, cut scalloped edges along one side, then glue "wings" to the side of the "bat can."

And a few more easy ways to recycle empty soup cans:

3. Use a nail and hammer to poke hole sin the bottom of sop cans and use as herb planters. Place a plastic lid under can to prevent rust stains.
4. Make Candlesticks (great tutorial from "Me Making Do")
5. Make a Flower-Shaped Cookie Cutter.
6. Make a Hanukkah Gift out of a soup can.
7. Make a Christmas Lum…

Home Made Halloween Costumes

Halloween is around the corner...so time to start cooking up some Halloween costumes you can make from home and save money while treating your little ghosts and goblins to a fun night!

This idea came from Kaboose.com-- I just changed a couple of things, but basically the costume idea is the same.

Home Made Spider Costume

Needed:
long sleeve black top/shirt
4 long black socks
newspaper, grocery bags, paper bags, or anything else you can use to stuff the socks with
a black knit cap
black yarn

Stuff each sock with paper or bags or filling of some sort.

Attach each sock to the side seams of the shirt (two socks on each side)
(I would suggest sewing the socks to securely attach them to the shirt, but duct tape can probably work as well.)

Next,  you will want to attach the black yarn in-between each sock and the cuffs of the shirt. This can be done in a couple of different ways. You can use the duct tape to attach a yarn piece at the cuff of the sleeve, and then tape the end of the yarn on t…
