During the summer when it's hot outside, my hair tends to get dried out and brittle. Thinking about this scenario made me want to do some research on natural hair conditioners that we can use to replenish the moisture that our hair loses due to chlorine from swimming, heat from the sun, and chemical products like hairspray and others.

If you have special methods that you use to keep your hair conditioned, I would love if you shared them with me so that we can showcase them on the blog.

From the Blog
Here is a recap of what we shared on the blog last week, just in case you missed a post or two!

Ideas From Around the Web
Here are some great ideas to help you enjoy making your very own natural hair conditioners at home!

In the Kitchen
Brown Sugar Scalp Rub
(recipe reprinted from Styles 101)


4 tablespoons of brown sugar
2 tablespoons of your favorite conditioner


Combine brown sugar and conditioner in a bowl and mix well. Apply to scalp only with fingers! Scrub scalp in a circular motion for a few minutes. Rinse, then shampoo and condition as normal.

Note: This is amazing!!!! If you have dandruff, flakes, or even an oily scalp, this scrub will remove all impurities!!! I had a problem with my scalp being flaky after shampooing, then 2 days later it would be oily. I read about brown sugar online and decided to try it, since all other flake removers did not work for me. This CURED my scalp issues!!! I now do this step once a week. No more itching, flakes, or excessive oil!!!
