Natural Hair Care and Treatments

Spending too much on expensive shampoos, conditioners, oils etc. but not getting the desired results that you see in TV ads? It is mostly possible and very common. First, because TV results are obviously overly exaggerated. Second, there an ugly truth we all need to face: hair care is very personal. What works for one person doesn’t necessarily work for another. That’s why I decided to write this post and share some tips to my audience, hoping that following these easy and simple beauty advices for hair will give that strenght and shine all of us are looking for!

1. Egg treatment
Use the entire egg to condition your hair. If you have dry or brittle hair, use egg whites to moisturize your hair. Use ½ cup of any egg mixture (egg white, entire egg) and apply to clean, damp hair. Leave it for 20 minutes and rinse with cool water. You will immediately notice changes.

2. Avoid hot water
I know, it’s hard. But try to skip hot water showers, because hot water will make your hair dry and brittle as it strips protective oils from your hair. Thus, prefer a temperature which is just a bit warmer than your body temperature.

3. Bottle gourd treatment
Extract some bottle gourd juice and apply it into your hair. Keep this solution for half an hour and wash it off thoroughly. This is one of the simple beauty tips for hair that would do wonders.

4. For that shiny soft hair
Prepare a mixture of 1 cup of your daily conditioner and 2-3 tablespoons of honey. Apply this mixture evenly on your wet hair. Leave it for 30 minutes and wash it off thoroughly. This mixture will close down your hair’s cuticle and give your hair 
that amazing shine.

6. Baking soda therapy
Quite a common and well known beauty therapy. Make a mixture of 3 tbsp of baking soda and some water. Rinse your hair with this solution after shampooing. Let it set in for at least 5 minutes before the final rinse. This therapy will help to remove the excess shampoo and styling product from your hair.

7. For bouncy hair
Apply a one to one mixture of warm water and apple cider vinegar to your hair. Rinse it thoroughly after 5 minutes to get rid of the apple cider smell.

8. Don’t wash your hair frequently
Wash your hair every 2-3 days, for proper regulation of natural hair oils. Washing your hair less often will also help regain your hair’s naturalbody and luster.

9. For strong hair
Use almond oil to treat dry and damaged hair. It is a very simple procedure, pour some almond oil in a bowl and heat it for 40 seconds. Then evenly distribute on your hair. Leave it for 30 minutes and then rinse normally with shampoo and conditioner using cold water.

10. Say bye-bye to dull hair with lemon juice
After the final rinse, apply 1 tbsp lemon juice to your hair. Simply towel dry your hair and style as normal to get rid of dry hair.

11. Treat sun damaged hair
Make a mixture of ½ cup honey, 1-2 tbsp olive oil and 1-2 tbsp of egg yolk. Apply this mixture on your hair for 20 minutes and then rinse with warm water. This treatment will help to replenish keratin protein bonds.

12. Moisturize your hair
Pour a little beer in your wet hair. Distribute evenly and massage your scalp with your fingers for 20 minutes. Then rinse it thoroughly to get rid of the beer smell. Do this procedure once a week, but it is recommended that people with sinus and cold should avoid using this treatment.

13. Do not brush wet hair
Wet hair is three times weaker and thus more likely to break. He recommends, towel dry your hair first and then gently detangle your hair using a wide tooth comb. Also, you should get your hair trimmed at least every six weeks to eliminate dry, split ends.

14. Let your hair air-dry
Allow your hair to dry by itself instead of using a blow-dryer or hot rollers. Using this artificial mode of drying technique will make your hairmore brittle and dry.
