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.
