I've gone great lengths to keep my beauty regimen free of as many chemicals as possible. So I will resort to using my own/others recipes for my hair and skin care needs. I've recently began taking different supplements to help my skin and hair texture. Right now, I am drinking gelatin everyday and it has helped my hair and nails become stronger. I've also incorporated it into my shampoo. My homemade shampoo recipe is: -1/2 Dr. Bronner's almond soap -1/2 water -1 teaspoon of gelatin -sweet apricot oil(I put a lot in, my hair is coarse and curly) -vitamin E oil -essential oils(lavender) It's really easy, I mainly just mix these ingredients into my shampoo container and shake it up. Then after I rinse my hair with Apple cigar vinegar and put coconut oil on my hair and skin. When I notice my bleached area is getting dry, I will mix up an egg and throw it in my hair in the shower. It works just as well as any expensive hair conditioner. Believe me, I love me some Bumble & Bumble, but for the price and chemical bath. I will stick with my egg yolk conditioner. What are your beauty recipes?
