Who would have thought that things like eggs, yogurt and honey can not only be used in the kitchen but also as a part of our beauty routine? There are so many different types of hair serums, masks etc. out on the market – but the downfall to them is that they come packed with unnecessary chemicals and ingredients. These products might fix one problem, but can also start another. We believe the best kinds of skin and hair treatments come from natural ingredients that you can find in your refrigerator. Here are a few great at home hair remedies that will be beneficial for whatever it is your are looking to improve when it comes to your hair.
For dry hair of all hair types: The egg is the best of all worlds. The yolk is rich in fats and proteins and is naturally moisturizing, while the white contains bacteria-eating enzymes which remove unwanted oils.
To use: for normal hair, use the entire egg to condition hair, use egg whites only to condition oily hair. Use egg yolk only to moisturize dry brittle hair. Use ½ cup of whichever egg mixture is right for you and apply to clean damp hair. Use enough to coat all your hair. Leave on for 20 minutes and rinse with cool water and shampoo hair. Use once a month.
For dull hair: Styling products as well as air pollution can leave hair looking dull. Dairy products like sour cream and plain yogurt can help reverse this damage. Lactic acid strips away dirt while milk fat moisturizes.
To use: massage ½ cup of sour cream or plain yogurt into damp hair and leave for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water followed by cool water. Then shampoo hair as you normally would. This can be done once every other week.
For itchy scalp: try a lemon juice and olive oil mixture in your hair. The acid from the lemon juice helps rid your skin of any loose, dry flakes from the skin while the olive oil moisturizes the skin on your head.
To use: mix 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice, 2 tbsp olive oil and 2 tbsp water and massage into damp scalp. Let mixture sit for 20 minutes than rinse and shampoo.You can use this tretment once every other week.
Dry or sun damaged hair: Whatever the cause is for your dry dehydrated hair, nature’s sweetener can help. Honey is a natural humectant which means it attacts and locks in moisture.
To use: massage ½ cup into damp hair and let sit for 20 minutes. You can also add 1 tbsp of olive oil to help loosen the honey for an easier application.This treatment can be used once a month.
