Stylists' Homemade Hair Cocktails
Hair-product slaves, take note: Fresh antidotes to sun and chlorine blahs are as close as your Sub-Zero.

By Annemarie Iverson

CLEAN & SHINE MASK

Robert Hallowell’s Honey Highball

2 tablespoons vodka
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 ripe avocado
1 egg yolk


Mash ingredients together in a glass bowl with a fork until creamy. Apply mixture to freshly shampooed towel-dried hair and leave on for 30 minutes. Rinse well with warm water. Shampoo and condition lightly, then style as usual. Vodka removes buildup of scalp oils and products, honey and avocado moisturize, and egg yolk smooths and conditions the hair shaft and scalp.

SUMMER-IN-THE-CITY SPRITZ

Orlando Pita’s Salty Sea Breeze

Large fistful sea salt
Water
T3 360° Boost and T3 360° Polish
Spray bottle


Mix sea salt and water in a spray bottle. Apply a dollop of both T3 360° Boost and Polish ($38 each) or your favorite polish on dry hair, then spray the salt mixture all over. Blow-dry hair while scrunching it to get a beachy look. Salt spritzes create great texture, but they can be drying. Be sure to start with a hair polish and do regular conditioning masks.

RESCUE REMEDY MASK

Danilo’s Frizz-Fighting Frappé

6-ounce tub plain yogurt
3 tablespoons olive or wheat-germ oil
Sprig of rosemary
Sprig of mint or 1/2 teaspoon peppermint oil


Use a blender to whip ingredients to a fluffy consistency. Apply liberally to prewashed towel-dried hair. Wrap head in a hot, moist towel, and seal in heat with a second dry towel on top. Relax for 20 minutes. Then for coarse hair, rinse thoroughly. For fine hair, use a gentle shampoo. If home brewed just isn’t you, Danilo recommends Pantene Pro-V Restoratives Time Renewal Replenishing Mask ($4.99) to help revive lackluster, splitting hair and “get root quality all the way to the tips.” And instead of filling his spritz bottles with mere tap water, the New York-based stylist uses Pantene Pro-V Restoratives Breakage Defense Strengthening Spray ($4.99) to add luster and function as a base to protect hair from styling assaults.

I am just amazed at what you can make for your hair out of the kitchen. I could have saved soooo much money on products if I knew about this. Smiley
I wanna try the clean and shine mask. I wonder though, is using it often a bad thing since it has vodka? Or is it a once a month type treatment?

To make this recipe non-alcoholic, you could substitute vinegar (either DWV or ACV) for the vodka.  Smiley

I used this last night and my hair was super soft! Smiley I wish I had done it in the morning!  CheesyIt kinda felt like waste to sleep on it and mess it all up! Roll Eyes do you think it would be okay to leave out the acv when I didn't need it and use the rest of the ingrediants?

Personally, I would use the vinegar instead of vodka, or leave both out.  The alcohol would tend to dry out the hair.
