There’s nothing better than going all-natural with your haircare routine. Your next haircare remedy might just be found inside your kitchen cabinets.
If you’ve spent hundreds on haircare treatments and you’re still left with fine, thinning, lack-luster hair, it’s time to go DIY! Organic ingredients nourish your hair from root to tip without compromising on its natural healthy state.
We are all about natural, non-toxic and simple ingredients! All the goodness from Mother Earth can transform your hair to repair and restore it. Especially during the cold, harsh winter months that can make your hair difficult to manage.
Why not switch up your hair care routine with a few of our DIY tips to revive your hair, right from your kitchen!1. Fight The Frizz
Looking for a solution to tame frizz? If the outermost layer of your hair is raised, it causes moisture to enter making your strands frizzy.
For smoother strands, mix a few drops of sandalwood oil with a few drops of olive or jojoba oil through the ends of your hair. This combination is used for smoothing and hydrating unruly hair, it works like magic! Apply a few drops and style your hair as usual. A little goes a long way.2. Bring Back the Shine
To hydrate without weighting down your hair calls for a leave-in conditioner that gently strips away dirt, leaving your hair clean and silky. Using dairy products like plain yogurt can boost shine to maintain its natural texture.
Yogurt alone works as a natural conditioner since vitamins and fatty acids gently eliminates dirt and leaves your hair healthier. Massage plain yogurt into damp hair and let it sit for 20 minutes before washing it with your regular shampoo.3. Organic Dry Shampoo
Daily hair washing can end up damaging your scalp due to stripping away important oils that are vital for promoting hair growth. If your hair easily gets greasy, refresh it with a little sprinkling of dry shampoo.
Making your own homemade dry shampoo using either arrowroot, corn starch or flour can easily be rubbed onto blonde or red hair color to eliminate oils or use the Lavender + Green Clay Dry Shampoo. For darker hair, mixing in cocoa powder into corn starch can blend into your brunette or black hair color or try the Rosemary Mint Dry Shampoo.
Essential oils such as rosemary, lavender and peppermint can all be used to stimulate hair follicles to protect and heal the scalp. Mix in equal amounts of each oil into a small spray bottle to prepare your own formula at home. Apply it onto dry hair along the scalp and ends.
For an easy to use organic hair elixir, try out the Magic Mist infused with real Quartz Crystal chips along with essential oils to boost your hair growth and strengthen follicles.
Keeping your hair clean is the secret to maintaining long term health and vitality. A clarifying shampoo can do just the trick to restore natural shine and luster.
An easier homemade method is to create a mixture of 3 tbsp. of baking soda dissolved into a cup of water. This baking soda rinse will remove any excess hair product build-up to leave your hair squeaky-clean, shiny, and soft.6. Elixir for Bouncy Hair
To bring back the bounce and volume to your hair, using apple cider vinegar has been proven to add more thickness and shine.
Just take 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar with ½ cup of warm water and pour it all over your hair. Allow it to absorb the excess oil from your hair cuticle for 5 minutes then rinse your hair thoroughly. Watch your hair shaft strengthen and become silkier than ever.
If you love the slicked down hair look, getting to the heart of the issue starts with taking a closer look at your cuticle. Protein is absolutely essential to strength the hair structure and cuticle.
For a protein-infused conditioner, mix 2 eggs and ½ cup of yogurt and rub it into your scalp. Leave on for five or 10 minutes minimum (the longer you can the better) and then wash it off completely to reveal shiner hair. It is an amazing boost for a dry/breaking hair, a great treatment before a special event it'll help your hair achieve its best glowing and hydrated condition.8. The Crystal Comb-Out
Thinning and flat hair can be caused by using harsh styling products, air pollution and over-using hot styling tools. To soothe and de-stress your strands, using a Crystal Energy comb can stimulate blood circulation to help with new hair growth.
Combing your hair using crystals induces vibrations into your scalp to renews cells and boost hair growth to produce lush hair. Groom your hair every night using the comb to de-tangle and calm your hair.
You may think you’ve found the perfect hair accessory, but it might actually be damaging your hair in the long run. Wearing a tight ponytail repeatedly can lead to breakage which can cause a receding hairline…we don’t want that!
Instead, use a Raw Crystal Handmade Headband to dress up your hairstyle without stressing your hairline. Using the right accessory such as a headband will ease off any hair tension to avoid any damage.
Nourishing your hair can help reverse damage such as thinning and split ends. It doesn’t help when we use alcohol in our styling products that can only make your hair frizzier and brittle.
Replace your alcohol hairsprays and make your own natural, non-toxic hair spray at home using a few ingredients. Take 1 cup water with 4 teaspoons sugar and boil it for the sugar to dissolve. Store it in an empty spray bottle and spritz your hair to keep your style in place all day.
The key to shiny, healthy hair starts with using natural products. If you’ve been splurging on expensive chemical-infused hair products, you can easily get away with concocting these homemade alternatives easily from your kitchen!

As the lockdown eases around the world, and we are slowly allowed to get outside more, it has been precious to see the sunshine making an appearance this month. Litha 2020 is promising to be a little more flexible than Beltane, and, while we can’t necessarily do all the things we might like to do to celebrate this Sabbat, we do have the freedom to breathe in the air of Mother Nature and observe the growth and abundance that the Earth provides in the Summer.
There is some difference in precisely when Litha is celebrated, according to different traditions. Astrologically, Litha occurs at the time when the sun is at its highest point, which, in 2020, occurs on the 24th June. However, Litha is traditionally celebrated in many traditions at the midpoint of the Summer (Midsummer), which occurs on June 20th or 21st. As with all things spiritual, there are no hard and fast rules about how you conduct your own practice, so go with what feels right for you.
