I’m in my late 20’s. A licensed cosmetologist who loves everything about beauty products, hair products and fashion. The thing is, like my other girlfriends, I just can’t afford to buy everything I want.
My aunt Paula always told me stories about putting mayonnaise on her hair when she was my age when she could’t afford a hair conditioner. It sounded so silly when I was younger, but I get it now. A perfect and inexpensive way to make your hair shine, without spending all that money on expensive products. Really, what is mayonnaise anyway…oil and eggs. Great ingredients to condition the hair and make it shine. This got me thinking about other beauty products I could make in the kitchen.
I started giving my “kitchen spa” products to my friends as gifts all packaged up in a pretty container with a super cute ribbon and tag. They all kept raving about them so I gave some to my aunt Paula and she too couldn’t stop raving. She asked me to share them with y’all here. If you like, I’ll keep adding new ones. I have a ton of recipes and they make fabulous gifts. I’m giving my mom a whole box of them for Mother’s Day. She’ll be so happy knowing I made her something with my hands and from my heart…not to mention it will help make her feel even more beautiful than she already is.
I have learned something new. It has been quite a while since I have been to a baby shower, and I am now prepared and up-to-date. I love the term "sprinkles" and it is nice to know that men are also invited to partake in the excitement! Thank you for a fun article!

Susan Lott is a great party planner! She has tons of great ideas that she needs to share with the online world. I have been begging her to start a Facebook page or Etsy account. The graduation gift that she made me was hand drawn with my name and different definitions for each letter. She framed it and I cherish it.....I also would have paid about $50 for it in a store. Thanks for sharing her idea but this idea is nothing compared to some of her other quick and money saving tips! You should hire her for your creative team!
Love you Susu!
