DAY 1 Make Your Own Weed Killer

The most “natural” way to get rid of pesky weeds in your lawn or garden is to pull them. But if your back won’t take it, or you just don’t have the time, try this simple recipe instead. Mix 1 gallon of vinegar with 1 Tbs. dishwashing liquid, and spray directly on weeds. The acid in the vinegar will react with sunlight to burn the weeds up, and the dish soap helps the vinegar stick to the leaves. Plain old white vinegar will work, but higher acidity gardening vinegar is also available—just note that it must be handled carefully and isn’t as safe for kids and pets. It is acid, after all.

This mixture won't discriminate between weeds and other plants, so spray carefully. And it won’t penetrate roots or contaminate the ground, so it may take several applications to make weeds completely go away. For areas where you don’t want anything to grow, such as cracks in sidewalks, add 1 cup of salt to the mixture.

DAY 2 Feed Your Hair

Collagen, the most abundant protein in the body, strengthens hair follicles and improves hair growth. Zinc, iron, biotin and other B vitamins, and omega-3 fats prevent hair loss, nourish hair, and improve strength and shine.

DAY 3 Get a Better Brush

Rough or wiry bristles can cause breakage and damage the scalp. Use a natural bristle brush to help spread natural oils from the scalp down the length of the shaft to make hair smoother and shinier. If your hair is prone to tangles, use a brush designed to slide out knots without breaking hair.

DAY 4 Protect Your Tresses from Environmental Damage

Shield your hair from heat styling, sun damage, chlorine, pollution, and dry air with a leave-in conditioner. Use a light, spray-on formula, and apply before blow-drying or styling. For extra protection, spritz hair
