Homemade Hair Detangler – All Natural & Chemical Free

DIY Sugar Scrub Bars

Mmmm! I love going to the spa but my wallet doesn't. Seriously. It hates the spa. Tells me it's way too expensive and that I have to find other ways. Lucky for me though, there's nothing more frugal than learning to make your own beauty products at home. Here's a recipe that will … [Read more...]
