Hair to Swear By!

Normally I am not one to try crazy hair products. In fact, rather than the typical Herbal Essecence shampoo and condition, I rarely touch my hair with any other product. 

Unfortunately, this hasn't helped me avoid all of the paraffin in hair products and I had a build up break down this weekend.

I had just showered and after blowdrying my hair, i still had a waxy film that, upon straightening, only got worse. After a few tears, I found this bad boy on Pinterest. 

Behold! It seemed like a smart idea but the image didn't cluck through, so I had to do a little googling. 

With the help of my mama, I decided to wash my hair in the laundry room sink. After using baby shampoo (which has NO paraffin), we used a spray bottle that was a mixture of half white vinegar and half water, spraying it throughout the layers on my hair. I let it sit for ten minutes and then rinsed it out.

I can honestly say my hair has never been felt so soft and light! It's like post-salon hair!


I recommend this trick for anyone whose hair needs a little life! 

Let me know if you try this hair trick! 

Today's Pickins:


  1. This is so neat to know! With summer and the beach trips approaching, this would work wonders :)

    A Preppy State of Mind is kicking off April with a fabulous giveaway with Smathers and Branson! The winner will receive a needlepoint key fob. Be sure to stop by and enter :)


  2. Love this idea! Confession: In 9th grade, a friend and I read in CosmoGirl that honey and bananas made your hair super shiny and decided to try it out on an overnight school trip. Let's just say that we were literally still pulling out banana chunks from our hair days later and completely clogged up the drain in our hotel shower. It was terrible.

    This trick makes a lot more sense! Thanks for sharing!! :)

  3. I will have to add that in my list of things to try!
