Spa for Cheapskates -- Cucumber Conditioning Treatment

My sister-in-law in Missouri, Kilika, has a wonderful blog -- She shares amazing ideas for home decorating and organizing, recipes, and the best home spa recipes EVER! Her ideas are so frugal, and they really work. I have been using her healing toner, her oil cleansing method, and her rice water toner for a while, and I'm hooked for life! I asked Kilika to share some frugal ideas for spa treatments here on my blog. Today she shares her cucumber conditioning treatment. I love the idea of using cucumber -- I don't like to eat the things, but I love how they smell. With the addition of the coconut oil, I think this would be such a nourishing treatment. Can't wait to give it a shot!

Cucumber Conditioning Treatment

1/4 cucumber, peeled
1 egg
1 half your broken egg shell full of olive or coconut oil

In a blender, mix all ingredients together until smooth.
Apply to hair.
Relax for 10 minutes while the mixture nourishes your thirsty hair.
Rinse thoroughly.

This is best as a treatment for hair damaged by constant exposure to sun and surf (or the pool!).
Use this conditioner to jump start nourishment for hair that stressed from enjoying the summer weather.

Have you taken time for yourself this week?

  1. I've just found your blog via your sister-in-law. Between the two of you I have inspiration coming out of my ears! (That's a good thing!)
