Crush rose petals for naturally stained lips: Pluck a petal or two and crush them between your fingertips until you see red liquid seeping out. Dab and blend the rose extract over your cheekbones for a healthy flush and swipe the excess over your lips for an all-natural stain. Be sure to blend the stain quickly in order to avoid splotches. Rinse with warm beer for shinier locks: Warm up a frosty brew on the stove before you bring it in the shower.The vitamin B and natural sugars present in beer gives hair the shine and extra volume. If your locks are looking lackluster, soak your strands after shampooing with warm, flat beer (the more hops, the better).

To avoid the powder from turning your hair ashy or gray, just let it sit for a couple of minutes to soak up the oils before working the formula through your roots with a brush and your fingers.
