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!

Welcome to this blog post, Witches and Lovers! You and I may share almost the same sentiments towards the approaching Valentine's. One thought and your stomach are in knots? I feel you.
With the recent events centering around Covid-19, it is normal to feel nostalgic for the traditional romantic movie nights, long walks by the beach, restaurant dates, traveling in another city, what else? Name it, we all wish and yearn for this entire pandemic to soon be over. But just like Warren Buffett’s 5/25 Rule, why don’t we focus more on things that we can control and assess what really matters?
For one, it wouldn’t take time to reflect that what does matter is who we share this Valentines with and secondly, how we can make them feel more special during this event. After all, Valentine's doesn’t require any place or any terms at all as long as whatever we plan to do comes from our hearts.
Imbolc is considered the midpoint between the Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox. It is recognized from February 1 – 2 and is also known as, Imbolg, Brigid’s Day, Oimelc or Candlemas. It’s a time to celebrate the recovery of the Goddess Brigid (It's pronounced “Breej,” or in some parts of Ireland, closer to “Breeds.”). Brigid is the daughter of Dagda and is one of the most well-known Goddesses in Irish Lore. Brigid is a Goddess that is usually celebrated and honored during Imbolc. She is a Goddess of the hearth, home, and inspiration. A protector of women and children and she is also associated with midwifery. The Goddess Brigid is well-connected to fire and encompasses all things to do with poetry, healing, and blacksmithing.
Imbolc is the first Fire Festival in the dark half of the wheel. This is a festival where we begin to see light and life returning to the earth. The Earth is being reborn with new life!
