3 Beauty Hacks Every Woman Should Know


(1) The Brassy Hair Struggle

It's officially summer and for a lot of women, that means taking a trip to the salon for blonde highlights. The colour trend called Balayage is especially popular right now. Although the look is fun and flirty, one unfortunate thing about highlights is they have a tendency to go brassy and can be expensive to maintain. You can skip a few visits to the salon by using Purple shampoo to wash your hair. Purple shampoos refresh faded highlights and counteract brassiness by distributing purple pigment. Take a look at the colour wheel below, Violet is the exact opposite of yellow, so the theory is opposite colours neutralize each other. We've tried a few and one that stands out in-terms of effectiveness and price is Rusk Sensories anti-brassy shampoo. We found ours at Winners for $12.99



(2) The Dry, Cracked Feet Struggle 

Summer also means open-toed shoes and pedicures! If you are someone who constantly suffers from dry and cracked feet, before going to bed, massage warm olive oil or Vicks on the dry areas and put on a pair of socks. Try this for a few nights for softer, smoother feet!

There are plenty of uses for Vicks VapoRub, to find out more, like how it can help with toe-nail fungus, check out this article from

(3) Coconut Oil for Skin and Hair

We've been hearing so much about Coconut oil these days and wish we had learned about all of it's benefits and uses before! Just type in the word 'coconut' Google or Pinterest and you'll find tons of tips on how to use this amazing product. According to Wikihow "Using coconut oil is a wonderful natural way to make your hair and skin soft, radiant, and healthy. Coconut oil is natural and contains no harmful chemicals. Toss out your deep conditioners, under-eye creams, and lotions - you don't need them anymore! A jar of unrefined coconut oil is an all-purpose moisturizer great for all skin and hair variations." 

How to use: (1) Apply a healthy scoop of coconut oil to your hair (2) leave on for 30 mins with a shower cap (3) rise out the oil as you would regularly with shampoo and conditioner and voila...silky smooth hair! Pro tip: use cold water (not hot) to rinse out your hair, massage your scalp as often as you can and drink lots of water!
