How you do it: Simply combine your “scrubby” ingredient with your liquid/wet ingredient until you have a thin paste. Related:  Beauty

I know we are only just beginning with 2012 but I have a feeling I've made an even more revolutionary one! Banana peels!

Homemade Hair Treatments - At Home DIY Hair Treatments Eggs, yogurt and honey are, at first glance, all components of a tasty breakfast—but they also happen to be hair treatment ingredients, and affordable, all-natural ones at that. And they're not the only ones. Did you know, for instance, that the oils in avocados more closely resemble our own skin's oils than any product in the beauty aisle does? Or that the mild acidity in lemon is an effective—and gentler—alternative to chemical-laden products?
