Quick Nail Fix

0 comments

Have you ever been on your way to a wedding or some type of party? And you just painted you nails...and it peels? And you search but can't find your top coat, or the nail polish you used, to do a touch up?

Well my mom had this problem on the way to a wedding in Alabama...Her polish peeled, but it didn't completely come off. We had no nail polish or anything in the car. All I had was hair spray for a quick touch up for our hair.
So I was thinking...If hair spray can keep your hair in place, why not your nail polish?

How to do this:

1: Spray some under the peeled section of polish.
2: Push section down lightly
3: Do a light coat of Spray over top.
4:Let dry, and enjoy!

This is not a permanent fix...This is just a few hours...Long enough for you to have fun!

I Dyed my hair with COFFEE

7 comments

Yes you read that correctly...Coffee... But I was pretty bad...I didn't take any before and after pictures...so you'll just have to trust what I say :)


This is how I did it...

*I did wash my hair right before I did this, because I had been swimming a lake earlier, and I wanted it to be going on a clean surface...

1: Have about 3-4 cups of room temperature coffee

2: I added a splash of Vanilla extract, to cut back on the coffee sent (optional)

3: Douse your hair about 15 times with a cup, in the coffee.

4: Let it sit on your hair for at least 30 min...(can do more if you want it to be darker)

*Don't wrap your hair in a towel, because the towel will soak up the coffee, instead of your hair :)

5:Rinse your hair, until your water runs clear.


You don't have to condition your hair, because the coffee is it's own conditioner...My hair feels SOOO soft! and shiny!

My hair is already a dark brown, but I have noticed that lately it is getting even darker, so my roots are 2-3x's darker than my ends. Causing my hair to look greasy/oily...NOT a pretty sight, when you know it's clean! So now my ends are pretty much the same color as my roots, and my whole head is Shiny and soft.


Would I do this again?

For dying my hair? No, because my hair is already so dark, that it didn't do that much to it...unless I need to quickly dye my ends to match my roots. don't get me wrong it worked!


For a deep Conditioning Treatment? MOST DEFINITELY!


Hair types this will most likely work the best on:

Blonde's, who want a quick change, that doesn't cost a lot of money, and isn't more chemicals going on your already bleached hair (the latter for the ones who've dyed it blonde)

It'll work fantastically for you!
P.S. I'll let y'all know how fast it washes out!
