These homemade remedies work to condition the hair and give it health and shine. The hair is made to recover easily without spending too much unlike in the purchase of expensive products for hair care. Most of the ingredients used for treating the hair can be found right at home. Here are some of the homemade remedies for the budget-conscious individuals.
1. Egg. Eggs are rich in protein, a component of hair; at the same time a nutrient needed for hair growth. Eggs are utilized for hair treatment as these work to nourish the hair strands and restore the health of your hair. Eggs are also known to be natural moisturizers.
Mix 2 egg yolks, 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil or olive oil, and 1/8 cup of water, thoroughly. This amount can be increased or lessened depending on the length and texture of your hair. Apply to the hair after a shampoo and leave it on the hair for at least 15 minutes. Rinse with cool water.
2. Mayonnaise. The main ingredients in making mayonnaise are oil, eggs, and vinegar. Each of these elements is considered good for the hair. Eggs nourish the hair with nutrients and make it strong, vinegar adds luster and shine to the hair, and oil adds moisture as well as protects the hair from the elements. This mixture answers all the issues of dry and distressed hair. Massage about 1/2 cup of mayonnaise thoroughly to your dry hair. Cover your hair with a disposable shower cap, then wrap further with the use of a hot towel. Leave the mixture on the hair for at least 15 minutes, shampoo using your regular product, then rinse thoroughly.
3. Oil. Hot oil is widely accepted as a powerful treatment for damaged hair. Heat from the oil causes the pores of the scalp to open allowing the oil to penetrate deeply as it nourishes and moisturizes the strands. The oil also softens and protects the hair fibers from damage. For vegetarians who don’t want to use eggs, oil is the best alternative.
Many people already realize the benefits of using virgin coconut oil which is solid at room temperature but liquefies as it gets warmer. Another excellent oil to be used is olive oil but if these two are not available, any vegetable oil will do. Heat 1/4 cup of the oil until it is very warm to the touch; apply section by section to your hair to condition all areas evenly.
Wrap your hair with a shower cap or plastic bag to seal the warmth and keep in the treatment. For better results, cover the hair with a hot towel. Leave the oil on your hair for at least half an hour then shampoo thoroughly until it is clean.
These homemade hair treatments for dry hair are easy do-it-yourself treatments that are natural and are therefore safe. These are more potent than the commercially prepared products sold in the market today. These are packed with nutrients such as vitamins, proteins, and emollients. Once-a-week treatment is enough to surely keep the hair in top and healthy condition.
