Take Two Aspirin and…The Different Uses For Aspirin

The Different Uses For Aspirin by Barbie's Beauty Bits

There are a lot of different uses for aspirin aside from medical. Today, I’m going to share with you some benefits for your head; of hair that is. These unusual uses for aspirin work because of the  salicylic acid in the them. So without further ado... 

Hair Color:

This one, fortunately I’ve never had to use.  But my sister (sorry sis), used this remedy when we were kids for her green hair.
The sun and blond may go together, but chlorine isn’t always a blonde’s best friend.  If you’ve ever had your hair turn a greenish color from chlorine, no need to scream, as an aspirin can clear it up.  

How To:

  • Take 8 aspirins and let them dissolve in some bottled water.
  • Shake it up to make sure all is dissolved.
  • Pour the solution into a hair coloring bottle and distribute on your hair. 
  • Leave it on your hair for 10 minutes and wash.
  • Depending on the extent of the green, you may have to do a couple of washes.

Dandruff Control:

No need to purchase two shampoo’s, as you can make your regular shampoo a dandruff control shampoo. By adding some aspirins to it!

How To:
  • Pour some shampoo into a small travel bottle.
  • Crush 2 aspirins in some aluminum foil.
  • Take the aluminum foil and use it as a funnel to pour the crushed aspirin into the travel shampoo bottle.
  • Mix with a stir stick.
  • Wash as usual.

Remove Product Build Up:

Follow the same recipe you would for the dandruff shampoo.  But after shampooing,  you want to make sure that you deep condition,  to add moisture back to your hair.

So hair, there you have it, another pantry to pretty bit!
