If you have naturally fine hair and you want to give your lifeless hair more body, we’ve got the answers!

Cut Your Hair Shorter

The longer thin, fine hair gets, the flatter it lays. It’s just a sad fact of physics.

DON’T LAYER IT…

Layers have traditionally been considered a great way to add body to fine hair, however, one-length cuts make hair look its thickest. Too many layers can look stringy.

Be Mindful Of Your Shampoo

As you likely well know, fine hair can look “oily” and can get this way after only one day. Make sure you opt for shampoos created to add volume and body.

Remove Build-Up

If you have use hair products like hairspray, styling gel or mousse on a regular basis, your hair is likely suffering from product build-up. To naturally get rid of product build-up, use an apple cider vinegar rinse every other week. Apple cider vinegar helps break down residue and will adds body.

Style It Right

Look for products labeled “volumizing” or “adds body.”

Combat Pimples With Aspirin Mask

aspirin_mask

Aspirin works wonders on headaches, but did you also know it works wonders on acne?

Aspirin is brilliant at spot-treating pimples. It has aminosalicylic acid, which is a cousin of salicylic acid, which is proven to reduce swelling, unclog pores and soften thick, scaly skin.

Ingredients:

– non-coated aspirin (coated is fine too, just takes longer to dissolve.)
– fresh lemon juice
– baking soda

Instructions:

1. Mash up 6-12 non-coated aspirins and combine with freshly squeezed lemon juice.
2. Let the aspirin dissolve until it turns into a paste.
3. Apply the mask to your skin and leave it on for 10 minutes.
4. Remove the face mask by dipping a cotton round in some baking soda and some water.

Simple huh?

A Banana Mask That Exfoliates!

Banana Mask with Oatmeal

The expensive facial treatments you might receive in a spa sometimes involve simple ingredients you’d find in any kitchen.

Bananas are naturally nourishing, brightening and moisturizing, and provides gentle, nonabrasive exfoliation as well as mild skin-tightening. Great for all skin types.

Honey is a natural antibacterial and works well to fight acne. As a face wash, honey absorbs impurities from the pores. It also acts as a humectant to draw moisture from the air onto the skin to hydrate dry skin.

With only 3 ingredients and about 5 minutes prep time, you can concoct a face mask that will rejuvenate, exfoliate and hydrate.

Makes 2 scrub masks (share this awesomeness with a friend!)

– 2 tablespoons of oats

– 1/2 a ripe banana

– 1 teaspoon of raw honey

Simply slice up the banana, then mash it with a fork – then mix in the oats and honey. Do this all by hand, rather than doing it in a blender as it will become too runny and just slide off your face, so you won’t really get a scrub or an exfoliation!

Massage the scrub into your skin for a few minutes. I would suggest doing this leaning over your sink, so the oats can fall in the sink. Leave the rest of the mask on for about an hour, then wash off with warm water and pat dry.
