Things to know in advance:
1. I was playing with the manual settings of my camera, not very well might I add, and if the lighting could talk it would say, “Help me, I’m poor.”
2. I was obviously home alone, and from now on you can all assume whenever I attempt a DIY project, a Vlog, or an at home beauty treatment of any kind, I’m home alone.
3. I had trouble getting decent photos of my hair after this was all done. I need an assistant to follow me around at all times to snap photos of me when I look good.
4. Even though this beauty treatment offered noticeable results, I must mention that in general, I take steps to ensure shiny, healthy hair all the time.
5. This includes minimal use of hot tools, using sulfate free shampoo & conditioner, rinsing my hair in cold water at the end of each shower, getting my hair trimmed every 6 weeks, and using zero product on my hair. I mean it, ze-ro.
6. No matter what steps I take to enhance my appearance, unless it’s a tighter shirt, some people are not going to notice.
7. This is completely off topic, but is about being noticed, or forgotten rather, so: Yesterday, James and I went into a restaurant to get a gift certificate. I went into the bathroom while he purchased it. When I came out, he was gone. Like, really gone. Like walked out of the restaurant, got in his car, started his car, reversed from the parking spot, drove out of the parking lot, and received a phone call that sounded something like, “ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?!?!!?!”*
8. He came back.
9. As a punishment, I’ll be hanging out around the house for the next five days in baggy clothes, watching Downton Abbey and searching Pinterest for more at home beauty treatments to take on in my solitude.

Step 1: Shower, put your hair under a faucet, spray your hair with water, do what ever it takes — but get your hair wet, then put it in a towel to bring it down a level of wetness to what I like to call, “damp”.
Step 3: Mix 1/4 cup of honey with 1/4 cup of olive oil in a bowl. Get that all up in your hair. Every. single. strand. I have long hair, so, you know, figure out how much you need depending on how long your hair is. It’s not that hard. Be prepared for a sticky, oily, what did I just do to my hair, feeling.
Step 4: Place hair in a shower cap for one hour. I literally love my shower cap. I received it from one of my best friends and it has changed my life. In terms of showering, at least.
Step 5: Shower. Shampoo, condition, rinse. Blowdry. Admire.
