Beauty the easy and cheap way!

Beauty stuff is SO expensive, jeez!!! I'll try to keep up the deals from Amazon because those are SOOO much better than buying them at the real store, but here are a couple more ideas to pretty yourself up without spending the big bucks!

#1: Homemade teeth whitener!!! Yes, it's true and it works!  No more 40.00 White Strips!
-You need 3 Tbs baking soda and one Tsp salt
-Stir ingredients together and put some on a toothbrush
-Use it like you would use toothpaste, don't swallow, just brush it on, let it sit a couple minutes, then spit it out and rinse!
-Voila, pretty teeth for 10 cents!

#2: Homemade hair mask, make your hair shine like at the salon!
-You need 1 ripe avocado and 1 Tbs olive oil
-Mash up the avocado in a bowl, then add the oil and whisk it until it's completely smooth
-Cover your hair with the mixture, making sure that it gets saturated into your ends more than your scalp
-You can either leave the mask on for 30 minutes on its own, or put a shower cap (or grocery bag, that's what I do) and blow dry it on low.  The heat activates the stuff in the mask and makes it work way better!  Leave it on for 15-20 minutes.

Have fun with these little tidbits!
