Post image for Video: How To Use Our Mixed Thread Wraps

Update: this story originally ran on April 12, 2012, but with brand-new hair wraps available in our webstore, we thought you might want a refresher course in how to style them.

This time of year, there is no shortage of fun accessories – flower headdresses, head bands, festival paint, toe rings and crochet foot ties, our festival shop is full of good stuff! One accessory that we love for adding a pop of color and pattern to your hair are these mixed thread hair wraps. Read more »

What an awesome video. I was wondering how to use the hair wraps. Now I can't wait to buy them. The hardest part now is which to buy. They are going to spice up my fall wardrobe. Hair candy. ;) <3

Post image for Nail Art DIY: How To Do Marble Nails

At first glance, marble nail art looks like something you’d need to have professionally done. Not true; this is something really easy to do on your own – not to mention it’s really fun. Anything that allows me to play with different colors and get my hands dirty, I’m in. That said, you don’t have to get your hands dirty to do this. Here’s how to do marble nail art! Read more »

Post image for Dip Dye Hair And Why We Love It!

To coincide with our Wash Shop this week we thought we’d show you some color-washed hairstyles we love lately. Dip dying your hair has been a running trend for quite some time now, and the look has us hooked every time we see it. Dipping strands of your hair into colors gives a magical/fantasy look… like you’ve stepped into a make believe world for a while and had some magic poured on you. Read more »

Post image for Aloe Plant Uses and Benefits

Update: This post originally ran on June 21 2012, but we wanted to share it again as summer winds down, and also because aloe is something you can use in your beauty routine all year round!

Aloe plants have a number of uses and benefits, and aloe is definitely something I like having around the house, especially in the summer time months. Read more »

To use the clear gel in the center...what is the easiest way to cut the stalk open to get the most use out of it ( length or width wise) and what do you do if you don't use it all at once? Can you store the leftover gel in frig for a short time or must you use the whole piece that you cut at the time of cutting the plant? And from most of the post...Is it an understanding that the plant can live just fine indoors in little ligthing and outside in morning & afternoon full sun?

I too have a brown thumb but have been able to grow aloe. I have always known it was good for burns but recently had multiple mosquito bites and thought to dry aloe on them. The itching was relieved quickly.

Post image for Free People Girls Get Creative With Hair Accessories

I’ve always loved trying out unique and creative styles with my hair – one of my elementary school teachers used to call me “Do Girl” because, even at the tender age of 8, I was rockin’ a different ‘do every day. Welp, 16 years later I’m still doing weird things with my hair. Sometimes my ideas end up looking awesome and sometimes people ask me if I’m “seriously going out in public like that.” But who cares! Experimenting with hair accessories is so much fun – and there is plenty of opportunity to do it in ways that haven’t been done before. Here’s how some Free People girls played with hair accessories this week!

How long does this recipe last before it goes bad?
Tera -Jun 29, 2014, 1:19AM
I buy my charcoal and bentonite clay from bulkherbs.com. I also buy several other herbs from them. Very inexpensive and excellent quality. Don't be duped by the commercial skincare industry, go straight for the good, natural ingredients and skip the preservatives and fillers. If you don't have a good understanding of how to mix products, just google natural recipes and you will get a ton of ideas! Play around with mixtures until you get a good mix for your skin, teeth, and body. Most natural things are just as good for your inside as they are outside. Multitasking!
