Dry Shampoo
I really don’t like washing my hair every day. It takes forever to dry my hair and I try not to use heating tools on it every day if I can avoid it. To give me hair a break and still freshen it up, I sometimes use dry shampoo between washes. It soaks up any oils that the hair follicles create at the roots, and gives it a bit of body too. Store bought dry shampoos can be expensive, with top brands being as much as $35, but you can make it at home very easily, for less than $2 a jar! It’s an easy way to cut back some time on your busy mornings, while still having fresh hair.

I have read a few articles that say adding the probiotic to the deodorant helps to regulate the good bacteria which keep the bad bacteria from taking over and causing stink. Are Antiperspirants Bad? Our bodies are meant to sweat. Besides that little bit of information, there are many chemicals in store-bought antiperspirants that you probably don’t want touching your body and being absorbed into your skin. For these reasons, I decided to try out a homemade version of deodorant.

10 Creative Mason Jar Ideas Winter is slowly approaching and because of the colder weather I spend most of my time at home anyway. I tend to get kinda lazy, like a bear, preparing for hibernation. So the fact I did something useful this time is actually a big deal for me. Since home improvement and craft projects are passions of mine, I decided to share it with you. While staying at home a lot, I got obsessed with mason jars. 1. Let's start with the simplest one. What we have here is a light blue glass jar, flower choice is entirely up to you. 2. This one is suitable for a centre piece at a casual wedding, or you can just place it on your desk and admire it. Fill a jar with sand and add some shells and other sea creatures. 3. The mason jar lamp idea may require some extra skills but it isn't impossible to recreate. These are the garden lamps of my dreams. 4. Now to another easy-to-do jar project that is very sentimental and romantic - the portrait mason jar. A perfect present to give to a person close to your heart.
