At home Treatment for your Hair

TGIF!! I am so glad it is finally Friday.
Do y'all have any plans for the weekend? I know I am headed out with a bunch of friends from work and we are going to a bar that is hosting a couple of great bands. 
The one band is Zach Linley and the Rebel Dare Devils.


 Love the name of the bar too Uncle Buck's. Reminds me of a wonderful childhood movie. :)


I live out in the country, way out in fact. Our driveway feels like it is a mile long. CrAzY 
If you are familiar with well water it can be rough, it can leave rust looks in your tubs, sinks, toilets, and even your hair. I have grown up having well water most of my life. This treatment is good to strip the build up that you can get in your hair too, not that we all get a build up. But it is a good conditioning treatment as well.
My mom and I learned this from a hairdresser of ours also had the hard/ well water. She had blonde hair and it always brightened her blonde, it looked gorgeous afterwards. 

This is what you will need:
2 packets of Kool-Aid Lemonade
Your favorite conditioner
a bowl and a spoon

Now take your conditioner and just squeeze a good amount in a bowl. You will want enough to cover your entire head. Next take your packets of Kool-Aid open them up and pour them on top of the conditioner. Mix them together with the spoon.
Now you want your hair to be dry when putting this on.
You will now apply this all over your hair. 
I leave mine in my hair for awhile. When my hair was longer I would leave it in for a good hour or longer. Honestly you don't need to leave it in that long. My mom will leave hers in for about 20 minutes. She has really short hair. I did this the other night right before we ate dinner and I left it in while we ate and chatted for awhile, ended up being an hour. So to sum it up I would do 20 minutes for shorter hair and on up to and an hour  depending on the length you have. It wont hurt your hair either way.
After it has sat on your hair for awhile, rinse it out and shampoo and your condition your hair like you normally would. Dry it and style like you would too.
Enjoy your fresh revived hair!


Well enjoy your weekend, and come back by on Sunday. My friend Kayla (who I miss terribly) from Kayla's Creations have a link party called Circle of Faith. We would love to have you all stop by and link up with us. We leave it open till Wednesday every week.

Circle of Faith Link Party {8}

First I would like to say Happy Memorial Day (weekend). Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, I know we have some things in mind to do around here. Hope to go trail riding, maybe go see a movie in the IMax theater. Really want to see the new Star Trek movie. [I'm a nerd deep down]
Second, I want to apologize to all m followers out there. Just when I feel like I am in the mood to get back into blogging I'm not.... So the only way to get back in the mood is to blog, Right? I am going to do my best to get back at it. :) I have some posts that I have taken pictures for, so keep an eye out for some up an coming posts. How do you all keep up on your blogging? Do you have your posts ready in advance and do schedule posts? Do you make yourself post on certain days of the week? What is the best way, you find, to keep up on the blogging? Leave me a comment below and let me know, I would really like to know. I loving sharing my life and crafts with all and I am getting into fashion even more, so I will be sharing some fashion posts... maybe someday I will get into the makeup. ;) Love all the fun eye shadows out there.
Thanks to Kayla over at Kaylas Creations, she has gotten me hooked on lipstick. I now own two colors, yes only two, but they are so much fun. Have you ever tried lipstick? Are you afraid that you wont like it on yourself? I say give it a try, you will be surprised... I certainly was. Now I am hooked and I put it on every day when I get ready and reapply when needed. 
Alright enough rambling for me... Lets get onto the link party.

Circle of Faith Link Party {6}

Happy Saturday/Sunday everyone! It has been quite the week. I hurt my shoulder.... I did a big no no when it comes to leading a horse. My own fault, hope to have a shoulder that isn't in horrible pain soon. I received an amazing package with goodies from Kayla :) Love my BEST FRIEND, and MISS her TERRIBLY! 


It's fun sending each other packages back in forth but I miss having our mornings when I didn't have to work of chit chatting and drinking coffee and tea and having a wonderful breakfast together. Someday we hope to be living near each other again. 
<3 you Kayla!
