Lately I discovered some super easy recipes for face and hair masks.

"The first thing that comes to mind when it comes to masks you can do yourself is an avocado mask. It's extremely nourishing and that's exactly what the hair needs after a summer of fun! I find the most simple method is avocado and olive oil. I usually do about 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil per avocado. It's especially nice if you heat the olive oil before mixing it with the avocado. Apply to dry hair and leave for 20-30 minutes then shampoo off with a delicate shampoo and a nourishing conditioner. Avocado is very high in fatty acids and a good source of vitamin D and Potassium, and olive oil will help keep the shine in your hair!"

Super Easy! Check out this link for the full article:

I also recently got this shampoo from Costco by Neutrogena and its an anti-residue shampoo that clarifies. My aunt is a hairdresser and she recommended it for me, but it would really be great for anyone who uses a lot of hair products. What it does is get all the gunk out of your hair that could be left over from product, baby powder(for me!) or any other stuff your regular shampoo doesn't get out. This shampoo also claims to "make your favourite shampoo work better.

Here's a good Face Mask recipe! This mask is meant to shrink pores. So, you apply the paste before bed and rinse in the morning.

3 tablespoons of brewers yeast (I"m yet to find this...)
3 tablespoons of milk
1 tablespoon of yogurt

Another suggestion was to look for sweet almond or grape seed oil to rub into cheeks and chin at night for a natural glow. It's probably found at a health food store...
