Dry, greasy, dull…none of us is happy with our hair! Just as girls are usually hypercritical in front of the mirror, they are while checking their very own split ends as well. If you don’t have enough time and/or money to get to the hair salon every month but you don’t want to give up effective hair care, look no further. I have here for you some homemade hair care remedies that I am sure you will love!
Your hair is dry and frizzy
If your hair always seems to look unhealthy and a bit like hay, your ingredients of choice will be avocado and honey. While avocado repairs your hair, honey is a natural moisturizer.
For your avocado hair mask, mash up one avocado and apply on damp hair, leaving it for about 15 minutes. The treatment should be repeated every two weeks. Same goes for the honey mask: apply half a cup on damp hair for about 20 minutes, and add oil if the consistency is giving you trouble. Either way, do it once a month!
Your hair is oily
Then lemon is your guy! Squeeze a small lemon and mix it with a glass of water. Apply on your scalp for a few minutes and rinse. Lemon can help control greasiness and make your hair healthier in general, because it’s packed with vitamins. Win-win!
You want silky hair
Egg is said to be the best moisturizer in the world. No need to buy expensive conditioner this month. Just mix an egg in your hair shampoo, leave it on your head for about 10 minutes, rinse. Repeat for a few days, until you see the results. However, if you have oily hair, try using just the egg whites.
You want your hair to grow
The sulphur found in onion juice can help hair growth. Just chop red onions (shallots are also ok), squeeze out the juice and apply on your scalp for 15 minutes before rinsing. If you are not a fan of onions, try applying green tea for an hour.
You can also help your hair from the inside. If looking at these masks recipes made you hungry, here are some snacks that will have the same effect from within!
Walnuts and salmon, for example, are a very good source of omega-3 fatty acids, which your body needs to grow hair and which also provide a natural shield for it.
Hair breakage can be prevented with the aid of vitamin C, present in blueberries and oranges. Iron will prevent hair loss, and spinach is the best green you can eat to be sure to get enough of it! Furthermore, oysters, beef and eggs provide zinc and selenium, important minerals to protect your scalp.
Time to skip the salon and go straight to the supermarket!
