Alternative Uses for Conditioner

Alternative ways to use shampoo and conditioner

 

I have a lot of beauty and hygiene products stored under my bed and cabinet, most of which I don’t even like that much! Here I’ll share some alternate uses for conditioner so you can get more bang for your buck. You’ll be greener by using up old products in different ways, hence stopping you from purchasing products you technically don’t need since you can substitute them.

Here are some alternative uses for hair conditioner:

  1. The easiest and most popular alternative use for conditioner would be to use it as shave gel. Most conditioners are really thick, meaning they will help prevent nicks from your razor.
  2. Make your body hair softer by using conditioner as moisturizer! Occasionally I’ll use it on my arms. If you use a small amount it doesn’t feel sticky.
  3. You can easily make a DIY deep conditioner by combining EVOO with normal conditioner, just have it sit in your hair for a few hours while you do homework. I show you how in this video.
  4. Use conditioner as shampoo! Sounds weird, I know, but it works! Learn more about “no poo” CO washing routines if you are interested.

Easy Breakfast Smoothie

Easy morning breakfast smoothie

Good morning Kind Friends! Today I’m going to share with you my yummy and easy breakfast smoothie recipe. You can follow the prompts in the below` video or the instructions below. What I love about this smoothie is that it has servings of both fruit and vegetables without tasting funny. It is also filling enough to be your whole breakfast.

Ingredients:

  1. Orange juice (I use Florida’s Natural)
  2. 1 Whole banana (See how to make your bananas last longer)
  3. Vegetables (I use Organic Girl Super Food veggies that comes with red and green swiss chard, tat soi, arugula, and spinach)
  4. Protein powder (Currently using Warrior Food vanilla enhanced from Eco Emi)
  5. Flaxseeds (Good Sense Organic flaxseeds)

Instructions:

  1. In an eight ounce glass add four ounces of orange juice, a banana (chopped), a few handfuls of vegetables, approximately a tablespoon of protein powder, and half a handful of flaxseeds. All proportions are customizable to your tastes.
  2. Pour ingredients into blender and blend for about 15 seconds. This will yield a thick smoothie. Keep blending if you don’t like the thick consistency.

That’s it! Very easy to make and you don’t even taste the vegetables, the orange and bananas over power them.

I hope you guys try out this recipe and if you do, let me know what you thought of it!

Outfit of the Day: Grey, White, and Black all Over

I’ve been having so much fun filming my Outfits of the Day! I hope you guys love them because I am aiming to put up fashion videos once a week. This video was sponsored through the MyLikes network so every view helps support rebeccakelsey.com!

My outfit:
Shirt: StyleMint
Cami: Kohls
Leggings: StyleMint
Boots: Payless
Cape: My Mom’s

My accessories: 
Purse: ShopRuche
Earrings: My Grandmother’s
Ring: Shecky’s and engagement
Lip gloss: mark.

I liked the new StyleMint leggings but I thought for the price ($29.99) they should have been better. They were definitely better quality then leggings from Forever 21 but I still expected more. They were very thick (so very warm, good for Fall and Winter weather) but if they were stretched enough you could see through them. I also think they should have been a little softer. Overall though, I will get good use out of them.

Thank you for watching. Have a wonderful weekend with family and left over Thanksgiving dinner!
