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:
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.
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.
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.
Use conditioner as shampoo! Sounds weird, I know, but it works! Learn more about “no poo” CO washing routines if you are interested.
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.
Vegetables (I use Organic Girl Super Food veggies that comes with red and green swiss chard, tat soi, arugula, and spinach)
Protein powder (Currently using Warrior Food vanilla enhanced from Eco Emi)
Flaxseeds (Good Sense Organic flaxseeds)
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.
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!

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!

Thank you Lauren for sharing this charity with me! I love finding ways to help others, especially when it can be as simple as this.
I love bananas and I hate grocery shopping. Thus, I buy a lot of bananas at once. This can be a problem because then my bananas get brown before I can finish them! So here is some tips on how to keep your bananas fresh for longer.
The simple solution: Cut off the stems of your bananas and store them in the fridge.
When you cut off the stems they don’t ripen as quickly (I don’t know why, I’m going to pretend there is a really cool magical reason rather than scientific) and in the fridge the process is even slower.
If you are going to use your bananas for smoothies, cutting them into slices and storing them in the fridge keeps them fresh for weeks.
Recently I’ve stopped using shampoo. No I’m not gross, I’m using Wen products. But now I have to figure out what to do with all of my left over partially finished shampoo bottles. As mentioned in a recent blog post, I have a problem where I buy too much of one kind of product when things are on sale… thus I have more than five shampoo bottles under my sink waiting to be used.
Here are some alternative uses for shampoo (that also apply to body washes, except for the first one) to help you get rid of this product build up.
Use shampoo as body wash! If it can clean your hair, it will clean your body.
Fill up your pretty soap bottle in the bathroom or kitchen with shampoo or body wash instead. Often times you can buy a generic large shampoo bottle for $1, which is cheaper then soap! I’ve been using shampoo as soap in my bathroom for years and no one has noticed.
Shampoo is perfect for cleaning up your makeup brushes. See how I do it here.
Spot clean stains before they go in the wash. Rub a little with water on a spot and let it sink in before you put it in the washer.
