When model Alex Brennan discovered that conventional, chemical-laden hair treatments could be contributing to her sudden hair loss, she started cooking up natural recipes for shampoo and conditioner in her kitchen. Using these handmade products her hair soon grew back. Alex's friends and family became interested and she started creating and testing new products with them in mind. Many of her friends in the fashion industry (models, make-up artists, etc.) began using her products both on the job and at home, and a business was born.
Alex is passionate about healthy, environmentally friendly beauty and shows you how easy it is to make your essential products at home using simple ingredients that can be found at your local supermarket or health-food store. The book is divided into 3 main areas: Bath & Body, Hands and Haircare.
Master homemade hygiene with a stunning collection of recipes for soaps and body washes, luxury hand lotions, natural deodorants, hair-washing and styling products, dental care, foot scrubs, bubble bath and beyond.
You'll find advice and recipes for both younger and more mature skin, including rejuvenating hand creams, cellulite-busting body scrubs and stretch-mark savers, as well as natural hand sanitizers, deluxe hair masks and amazing homemade gift ideas.
Whether you want to whip up a simple, super-hydrating body lotion, a fragrant citrus shampoo or an all-natural teeth whitener, this book makes sure that your kitchen is the only cosmetics counter you'll ever need to visit.
