Remedies for Winter Hair
If your hair is starting to feel dry, and you can
see the breakage on the end, now is a great time to moisturize
your locks with natural ingredients found in your home.
Some of our favorite home hair remedies include:
Honey as a Conditioner:
Brush your hair
and remove all tangles. Gently work in 100% pure honey into your
hair, starting at the roots. Work in sections to ensure all of
your hair is covered with honey. If the honey is too thick to
work with gently warm the honey and place on the hair. Cover
your hair with a shower cap and wrap a towel around your head.
Let the honey sit on your hair for 30 minutes. Remove the towel
and shower cap and rinse your hair in the shower with warm water.
The honey will effortlessly leave your hair. The honey has left
your hair full of shine and bounce.
Serious Hair Repair - Olive Oil:
Warm about 2 tsps. of olive oil. Test the oil's temperature before
applying it to your scalp; the oil should be warm to the touch,
but not scalding. Warm oil penetrates more deeply into the hair
shaft to repair the damaged cuticles that cause dryness, frizziness
Massage the oil into your hair, beginning with
your scalp and working your way to the tips of your hair. Do this
slowly, as quick jerky motions may just snap already fragile hair.
Wrap your hair in a warm towel and let the oil saturate your hair
for up to 30 minutes. Sitting in a steamy bath can increase the
oil's penetration of the hair shaft (resulting in deeper conditioning)
and can also prevent messy oil spills around the house. Use warm
to cool water to lock in the moisture to your hair.
and condition your hair as usual. Combine ¼ teaspoon of honey
with 4 cups of warm water. Rinse this solution through your
style as usual.
Avocado Hair Treatment for Shiny Hair
This is a hard to make because it's so hard to sacrafice a tasty
(and pricey) avocado do to this. If you have an avocado tree, or
can steal some from your neighbors :), then go for it, as it's
well-worth the effor and cost.
In a small bowl, mash and combine:
1 avocado (1/2 for shorter hair)
1 egg yolk
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
Apply to hair and allow to remain 30 minutes or longer, then shampoo
and condition as usual.
