I know this is gonna sound crazy. There is absolutely no scientific data to back this up. But I am 100% certain that in the last 6 months, I have not added a new gray hair to my head! No, my stress level has not decreased. But, I have not had highlights done in 8-10 months and it is hardly noticeable
Well, maybe it is, but if anyone is saying so behind my back, I can't hear them.
So, yea. I have nice hair. With--I am really not kidding here-- less gray. But I also have an oily mess to deal with by day 2! Her is my trick to help keep the oil at bay in between washings.
1/3 cup Epson salts
1 T arrowroot or cornstarch
1/4 tsp-1 T of cocoa powder (less if lighter hair, more if dark)
6 drops lemon or rosemary essential oils or a combo of both.
Put the Epson salts in a spice grinder and pulverize to a soft powder. Add the other ingredients and pulse until well combined. Store in an airtight container.
To apply, use a cosmetic brush and add a light layer along roots of DRY hair. I am careful to go around my ears as well, a really oily spot for me. Let it sit to absorb the oil for a minute or two (the longer you let it sit, the better.) Then comb it over the sink or bathtub and if needed, run a blow dryer on it for a few seconds.
I used to use fabric softener sheets to tame wild static hair. For a non toxic remedy, cut off a square of tin foil and run it through your luscious locks to smooth them. Use it again and again. Cool trick, huh? How do you think it would work in the dryer?? Hold that thought....
