Hair often goes from dry and full of static to frizzy and sun bleached by the end of the summer. With this recipe for the “Lustrous Locks” hair treatment from Natural Beauty by Elizabeth TenHouten, you have an easy fix for dry hair that should be indulged in bimonthly during the summer.
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon almond oil
1 cup water
Preparation and Application:
In a small bowl, mix ingredients until emulsified, and apply to your hair as a conditioning treatment in the shower. Rinse with warm water. Try not to blow-dry your hair too often because that also dries hair out. Take advantage of the season’s sunshine and let your hair air-dry.
Combining a wealth of tips and 75 recipes for all-natural beauty aids, using nothing but pure ingredients direct from Mother Nature, with a philosophical approach to beauty as the foremost purpose of human existence, Natural Beauty inspires readers to pursue a natural, healthful approach to caring for their mind, body and soul.
For Elizabeth TenHouten, the pursuit of beauty is cyclical: “We exist in a parallel state of reaching for beauty. So, this dialectical tension of reaching for and returning to beauty is the cyclical state of beauty.” In her new book, Natural Beauty, TenHouten lays out a philosophy of beauty that encompasses physical, mental and spiritual well-being, an integrated approach that addresses the whole person. Natural Beauty includes a wide variety of all-natural beauty tips and tricks drawing on everyday ingredients with amazing healthful properties.
