Here are some awesome tips for getting rid of greasy hair
Use Dry Shampoo
The quickest way to get rid of your oily roots is to give them a quick spritz with some dry shampoo. You can buy various brands of this type of shampoo in your local supermarket or drugstore. The beauty of dry shampoo is that you don’t need to rinse it out with water. Simply spray onto your hair – remember to focus on the roots! – and then rub it in for a few minutes. Then you just need to brush it out with your regular hair brush. And there you have it; your hair will look a lot healthier and shinier without any traces of grease!
Straighten Your Hair
When you straighten your hair, you will be adding a lot of heat to it, which can effectively dry out your hair. You can discover the best kinds of straighteners for your hair on sites like http://www.hairstylinggirl.com/ghd-flat-iron/. Simply straighten your hair, and you will find that your hair will appear a lot dryer when you’ve finished. Remember that you should always use heat protection spray, though, to prevent any damage.
Use Products With Witch Hazel
When you are looking for new hair products, try and find ones that contain witch hazel. Witch hazel is a flower that has many different properties: 14 Uses for Witch Hazel. One of these great properties is that it acts as an astringent, which means it can help to close the pores on the skin. When you apply it to your hair, it will cause the pores of the scalp to close up, which prevents any grease or oil being secreted from the skin onto the hair.
One way to prevent greasy hair the first place is to better prep it while you are washing it. There is no better hair preparation than a good old hair mask. This is something you apply to the hair and leave it on for about half an hour before you wash it. It acts as a deep conditioner. Want to know what the best natural product is to use as a hair mask? Egg whites! Egg whites are very high in sulfur, which is great for getting rid of dandruff and excess oil from the hair. All you need to do is whisk up some egg whites and cover the hair with them.

Ok ladies, I know we all have our opinions on the Kardashian’s – but I know we all agree on one thing – they sure know how to style their spaces.
If you’ve ever seen Kylie or Kim post pics of their bedrooms, makeup vanities, or walk-in closets, you’ve probably seen how luxurious and decadent they’ve made their personal spaces.I’m sure you’ve also drooled over the thought of getting ready every morning and feeling like a queen.
Well, we’re here to show you how you can create a space like this for yourself in your own home. With the following tips, tricks, and style ideas – you can create and have the next best thing in your own room. Watch out Kim…
1. Your Space:
First thing’s first… you need to think about your space. How much space do you have, and where would be the best spot to put your makeup vanity?
If you have a walk-in closet with enough space, this is a great idea. If you have a corner of your room that isn’t being used, this works great too.
Even if you have a small room and limited space, we can show you how to optimize it and create a lavish and personal vanity space for yourself.
If you have a walk-in closet with shelves on one side, a convenient and adorable idea would be to place your vanity in between two shelves.
This creates some cozy privacy for your vanity and also offers more convenient storage. If you have a room with a large window, a great idea would be to put your vanity table in front of the mirror.
This also allows you to take advantage of natural daylight when doing your makeup.
If you have a small room, consider having a bedside table that could double as your vanity when you wake up! Find a small table that can fit a chair underneath, and voila! You’ve cleverly optimized your space.
Now that you’ve decided on a space for your vanity, you need to find your vanity table! This will also depend on the space you have to work with – but here are some ideas:
Scour local antique markets, garage sales, second-hand stores and flea markets, try to find an inexpensive and unique table for yourself. Look for pieces that inspire you, reflect your personal style, and make you feel happy. You should feel like a queen when you sit in front of your vanity! If you find a piece that excites you, but it isn’t in the best shape, consider re-purposing it to fit your needs. Sometimes all pieces need is a fresh coat of paint and some TLC.
IKEA offers some great small tables for reasonable prices as well. This would be a good place to get a bedside table that doubles as a vanity if you are working with limited space. You can also find inexpensive but eye-catching chairs here too. I have a friend that found an IKEA bed shelf that she doubled as a low makeup vanity. It works perfectly for her!
If you want to get really creative and show-off your unique style, try re-purposing something that inspires you into your makeup vanity table. My great-grandmother passed down her sewing machine to me and I had it sitting in my basement for the longest time. So what I did was remove the sewing machine from the top, keep the base, and added a larger table-top. Now I have a beautiful vanity table with several drawers for storage that looks chic and antique, and also reminds me of my grandmother!
3. Time To Decorate:
So – you have your table! Now it’s time to think about styling your vanity. This is the fun part… Here are a few ideas. Get creative and make it personal!
Mount a large full-length mirror behind your vanity to make your space look bigger.
Look for a beautiful antique serving tray to act as a spot to place your jars of brushes or whatever else you’d like. This can be found in antique markets too!
Add a small lamp/lamps to help you better apply your makeup at night.
Look for cute jars, boxes or compartments that will fit all your supplies and keep them organized. I have several different boxes in my vanity that hold everything from false eyelashes and eyelash glue to cotton swabs and q-tips.
Add your own personal touch! I have twinkle lights around my mirror and small dainty bowls that hold all my jewelry.
Consider adding some art to the surrounding wall, or add some shelves for things like nail polishes or any important items you may have, like a facial steamer or blow dryer/flat-iron.
Have fun! This part is where you get to pamper your space. Keep in mind that the whole point of a makeup vanity is to create a place for yourself that makes you happy every day, and makes you feel like the star you are!
