3 Must-Read DIY Beauty Tips My Mom Swore By

The older I get the more interested in beauty I am. My mother was my beauty icon. I gaze at her pictures and remember how beautiful she was!

I remember sitting on her bed watching her get ready for dates with my dad. She would literally have to put me out. My mom notoriously used Noxema, and ALWAYS rolled her hair before going to bed. I’ll admit that I am not always that diligent. So it’s obvious that I have loads of ole school tips and tricks that I still swear by.


But there’s three that I still do to this day!

1. Brightening your grey hair with hydrogen peroxide.

One of the questions that I am always asked. How do you keep your grey hair so shiny?

For dull yellow greys, mix equal parts of 3% hydrogen peroxide, water and your favorite conditioner in a spray bottle. Spray clean, damp, non-conditioned hair with the mixture. Comb through the hair with a wide-toothed comb or pick. Leave on for 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing. Repeat once a week to prevent buildup.

You COULD buy a clarifying shampoo but, meh! I prefer the natural route.
