Hairspiration: Tia & Tamera

It's been a long time since Tia and Tamera's Sister Sister days and now they are beautiful grown women still holding their own in Hollywood.

DIY: Sugar Scalp Scrub

I'm sure most of you have heard of using a sugar scrub for the lips, but have you ever wondered what it would be like to use a sugar scrub on your scalp? Probably not, because it's quite an unusual concept. However, I stumbled across the idea whilst looking online for natural remedies for dry scalp issues today and decided to give it a go seeing as my scalp was in a pretty bad state.

The recipe I found is in the above photo, however I chose to use Almond Oil instead. You can use any oil of your preference. All you have to do is mix the sugar and oil together to form a paste and use prior to washing hair. Also note that brown sugar is recommended but I used what I had in the kitchen ('golden granulated' is nearly brown sugar right?).
