DIY Blonde Hair Toner

Just dyed my hair platinum… YELLOW?

This is how to tone things down a notch without all the chemicals and harm of dying it again, GO BLUE!

Just take an ordinary, super-moisturizing conditioner

(I know, totally not organic but all I had within my vicinity was a dollarama). So for future-organic reference, try purchasing a lavender based organic conditioner with LOTS of moisturizing capabilities coconut, argan, jojoba, etc.

Take a normal handful amount of conditioner, then mix the conditioner with 2 drops blue food coloring, 1 drop green coloring, and 1 drop red food coloring. The blue hue will neutralize the yellow tones in your hair!

Put into your wet hair like a normal conditioner and let it sit for a few minutes, then rinse it out.

I just started doing this and can already see a slight difference. Try using a strand test (when you experiment on a small portion of your hair instead of the whole head) to see how your results can vary!

If you’re like me and live in flip flops 24/7, you’re aware of the consequences. And one of them is dry, cracked heels that your daily moisturizer can’t even touch. It’s an endless battle. What? Wear real shoes? That’s no fun.

But that’s where a simple yet effective homemade scrub comes in….

This method is using a carrier oil, probably more for the scent than anything.

She uses background color that’s slightly out of focus to make the photos resemble abstract oil paintings.

an inconvenient emu truth

This past week I purchased “Emu Oil” soap from Soap Works, the same Toronto based company in which I got my Bees Wax soap from. The soap is incredibly rich and moisturizing for dry skin. I wouldn’t recommend it for oily skin. If you are not concerned with the ethical implications of how this soap is produced then this is a great soap for flaky, winter skin.

HOWEVER, I am concerned with such issues. After staring at the name for quite a while I wondered HOW emu’s generate oil? After researching the extraction and production method of Emu Oil it is very apparent that I purchased a CRUELTY-INDUCED product.

According to Juniper Russo of Livestrong.com Emus are large, flightless birds that store oil in their body fat. Recently, Emu farms have gained popularity by raising these ostrich-like birds in large-outdoor enclosures. Since Emus mature at a slow rate, they are slaughtered by machines that break their necks before the second year of their life.

Emu Oil manufacturers extract the unrefined oil from the thick fat reserves on their backs and most will discard the remaining portion of their body. Through a refining process of heat and refrigeration the material is filtered of impurities and inorganic compounds. Some manufacturers then add artificial fragrances to improve the product’s appeal.
