Celeb Stylist Robert Hallowell's Hair & Beauty Recipes


I have had the good fortune over the past few months to spend some time on the phone chatting with the very charming and witty Robert Hallowell.

Not only is Robert a celebrity hairstylist that has worked with the likes of Lucy Liu, the Mummy's Brendan Fraser and the ever gorgeous Geena Davis, he is known in Hollywood as The Kitchen Beautician because he whips up his own hair and beauty treatments in the kitchen's of his celebrities.

Although Robert now has his own hair care line known as Prawduct (available at that has evolved from his recipes, he is always happy to share some of his favorite home treatments.

I personally love Robert's recipes and have tried them all. Listed below are some of his best known at-home treatments:

Mane-Moisturizing Yogurt and Egg Treatment

Yogurt cleans and softens; egg yolk adds shine; honey moisturizes and smoothes.

Ingredients: • 1/2 cup plain yogurt • 1 egg yolk • 1 tablespoon honey Directions: Shampoo your hair; towel-dry. Mix ingredients together. Rub into hair and cover with a shower cap. Leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse, then shampoo thoroughly.

Clarifying Shampoo

Purify your hair and remove environmental gunk and junk. Use this weekly (but never daily).

Ingredients: • 1 tablespoon of baking soda • 2 tablespoons of your favorite shampoo Directions: Mix the ingredients together in the palm of your hands. Pat into wet scalp and hair. Leave mix on for a few brief minutes. Rinse well and then condition ends. Finish with cool rinse.

Banana Avocado Hair Conditioning Treat

Purify your hair and remove environmental gunk and junk. Use this weekly (but never daily).

Ingredients: • 1/2 ripe banana • 1 heaping teaspoon plain vanilla yogurt • 1/2 ripe ripe avocado • 1 tablespoon of Olive Oil Directions: Combine the ingredients together a blender. Mix well. Pour contents into a clean plastic squeeze bottle (old ketchup squeeze container works well).

Shampoo scalp and hair. Rinse well. Towel dry to remove excess moisture. Work the Hair Treat into your hair. Coat well, especially the ends but AVOID the scalp areas.

Use a wide toothed comb to distribute the mixture through the hair. Cover head in plastic cap or plastic wrap and cover with a warm towel. Site for 25 minutes.

Rinse well with lukewarm water.

Shampoo. Do a final rinse. Apply a leave-in conditioner if you wish.

Warning: Always do a small patch test on any of these recipes to make sure you are not allergic to any of the ingredients.

Daily Hair Tip
For a low maintenance style, try to work with your natural hair type rather than against it. For example, if your hair is naturally wavy, select a hairstyle that works easily with the waves.
