  1. Cut open an aloe leaf.
  2. Scoop out the gooey insides.

Oatmeal Soothes More Than Just Appetites

Not only does oatmeal soothe our grumbly bellies, but it can also calm down an irritated scalp.

If soothing your scalp wasn’t enough reason already, add ‘fighting environmental stressors’ such as those delightful free radicals we hear so much about into the mix,

Keep Mo’isturized!

Long-term care can be just as crucial as initial emergency application.To keep rehydration momentum going from handy-suggested vinegars ,oils,butter creams continuing down healthy shampoo conditioners path seems most effective long term-wise!

  • Avoid sulfates in shampoos; they strip away natural oils

Moisturization prevents not only future burns but splits ends and other common annoying hair mishaps(beauty secrets overheard from random BFFL).
