Hands up who wants better skin and hair? Everyone? Yes, thought so! When it comes to looking your best, looking after your skin and hair is a must. While your intentions may be good, the truth is that sometimes the best skincare and hair products are well, damn expensive – not to mention filled with nasty chemicals that you really could do without.
Certified holistic health coach, Annie Lawless knows a thing or two about how to get great skin and hair. Her secret? Natural foods that you find in your kitchen. Not only are these foods super cheap, but they do amazing things for your skin and hair.
1. Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse
According to Annie, apple cider vinegar is one of the best natural products that you can use on your hair. “[It] Keeps your hair (especially colored hair) from losing its volume and becoming dull by eliminating product build-up. Consider this spring cleaning for your hair,” says Annie.
2. Turbinado Sugar Body Scrub
Looking for a natural way to exfoliate your skin? Mix together turbinado coconut sugar, coconut oil and honey to create your very own DIY body scrub. Annie says that the scrub will “help remove dead skin cells, smooth and improve one’s overall complexion.” The scrub also “acts as a great exfoliant to smooth skin before using sunless tanners!”
3. Avocado & Egg Yolk Hair Mask
Want strong, soft hair? Annie says that an avocado and egg yolk hair mask is the best natural way to nourish your hair. [The hair mask] helps boost shine, soften, strengthen, and revive dry and damaged hair. Avocado is full of healthy fats, but its molecules are much smaller and lighter than the fat molecules of coconut oil so it rinses out so much easier. It is also jam packed with B-Vitamins to give your locks some nutrition. And eggs are full of fats and proteins to help strengthen your hair (a MUST if you have damage) and add an insane softness and shine,” says Annie.
