26. Beer

Pour me another.  Beer helps add body and repairs damage thanks to the hops and malt in the wonderful beverage.  This one takes a little work, but all you have to do is: boil 3/4 cup of beer until it reduces to 1/4 cup, let cool, and add to 1 cup of regular shampoo.

27. Flax Seed Oil

Place some flax seed oil on a Q-tip and rub it on your eyelash line to help stimulate lash growth.  The B vitamins in the oil help repair damage and get them growing.

28. Herbal Poultice

A classic herbal poultice (a poultice is an herb paste wrapped in cotton) to help fight acne is a mixture of dandelion and yellow dock.  Mix the two herbs slowly with warm water until a nice paste forms.  Once everything is blended put the paste on a cotton cloth and place on the affected area until the paste dries.  (Also can be used for sunburns)

Not just for a sore throat or upset stomach; steeped chamomile tea bags can help your complexion too.  Use them warm for irritated skin on the face and cold for puffy eyes.

32. Mint

Add a couple of bunched of mint to water, boil and strain.  Add the mint water to your shampoo bottle (use a 2-1 shampoo to water ratio).  Use your shampoo and conditioner as usual and watch your oily hair disappear.  Well your hair wont disappear just the oil in it.
