Do you get up every morning with a fresh mood, but dry, damaged and dull hair? Do you spend like crazy in salon to get a hair spa or other hair treatments done? If it is so, then following are the home remedies that make your hair lustrous and silky:
Hot oil massage: It can be hot coconut or castor oil. Massage the scalp with your fingertips in a circular motion or a cotton ball can also be used to perform the procedure. Do not overheat the oil and do not rub vigorously on hair as it may cause breakage. Massage gently.
Banana and Avocado: Ripened mashed banana and avocado can be applied directly to the hair. Leave it for 30 minutes and wash with lukewarm water. It is also effective in treating dandruff and adds shine to dull hair.
Egg and honey mask: Beat two egg whites with a spoon full honey and apply to hair for about 30-40 minutes. Rinse with a mild shampoo. Egg whites contain proteins which strengthen hair and make it smooth and silky.
Rosemary and Hibiscus oil: Apart from giving hot oil massage, use small quantities of Rosemary or Hibiscus oil in combination with olive oil throughout the hair length. This will condition your hair and make it smooth and shiny.
Green tea: After shampooing the hair rinse, it with green tea and towel dry. Green tea works as a conditioner for brittle hair making it soft.
Vinegar: Make 1:4 vinegar and water mixture and apply after every hair wash. Juice of one full lemon can also be used instead of Vinegar. This makes the hair look bouncy and shiny.
Conditioner: Apply a leave on conditioner after every wash to make hair soft and protect them from damage. A conditioner with sunscreen is the best as it protects hair from the damaging effects of ultraviolet rays.
Eat healthy: Make sure your diet is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids like olives, flax seeds, beans, fish, walnuts etc. This will keep your hair healthy. Also include green vegetables and almonds.
Avoid chemical treatments: Give your hair some time to repair. Avoid any kind of chemical treatment. Also, avoid using hair dryer to dry your hair. It removes all the moisture from the hair and makes them dry. Instead towel dry your hair.
This is the time to say goodbye to dry and damaged hair and get salon perfect hair at home only.
