So I have to admit I have been tempted to put my flat iron aside and let my hair go au natural wavy!  What has gotten in to me.  I always tell my bff’s that I can feel the trends.  I guess it comes with the territory.  So my quoted on next hair trend is the au natural beachy look.  How to get this look is as easy as waking up in the morning.  I have been using some incredible beach curl enhancing sprays that really work in creating a very subtle wave that is very natural.  My top picks:

David Babaii Bohemian Beach Spray

 Frederic Fekkai Luscious Curls Wave Spray

Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray

Although the summer is almost over your hair will look fab in its au natural state with a little pick me up.  Very sexy and very now.

Left Over Conditioner in a Tube?

Are you like me and have tons of conditioner tubes with just an itty bitty bit of conditioner left in it?  What can you do with all of that leftover conditioner?  I have the answer!  You can make a very luxurious body exfoliation with it.  The ingredients used in conditioner are the same ingredients as some of the finest lotions and body scrubs!  So you all want to know how?  Here is where the magic comes in.

Step 1) Open up the conditoiner.  If in a tube cut the opposite side of the tube so you can really get all of it out.  Combine all of the leftover conditoiner in a bowl.
Step 2) Add Olive Oil and Sea Salt
Step 3) Mix well
Step 4) Apply to your body and rinse

Soft supple skin with just the ingredients in your home!  Now that is a definite value.
