Rice Bran Oil to the rescue!
It’s one of those mornings.
You are running late, and you are in a hurry. You are trying to get ready for work and the kids are running wild. There’s breakfast to be made and your half dressed 6 year old runs past you with her pants on her head. You have a hectic, wonderful life, you smile to yourself. Until you see your hair in the mirror! Oh!
You reach for your mousse, but it isn’t in its usual place. You know exactly where to look – your 14 year old daughter is always ‘borrowing’ it. Yep – there she is, running it through her hair. “Honey, can I have my mousse, please?” you say with an eyebrow raised. She gives you that – ‘You are SO uncool’ look and hands you the empty bottle – “Looks like you’re out, Mom.”
Now what? You go back to your bathroom, aware that it is now 15 minutes later than when you should be leaving. You frantically search your beauty products – is there anything you can use instead? Necessity IS the Mother of Invention!
Have you ever found yourself in this position? I think we all have! You would be amazed at some of the things you can do with rice bran oil – specifically, you can use it in place of hair gel or mousse. Just take a teaspoon or less – rub into your hands and work through your hair. This will feed the hair – keep spilt ends at bay and leave you with a shine – without the oil!
There when you need it, rice bran oil can save the day (or at least your hair day)!
