Homemade Hair Treatment Options
In order to maintain the health and beauty of your hair, it is important to keep hair properly conditioned and hydrated. While there are a large number of treatments available for purchase at drugstores and salons, many hair masks and moisture treatments can be made inexpensively at home. These mixtures provide a more natural means of taking care of your hair.
To begin with you need to understand the present condition of your hair. Extremely dry hair tends to absorb more moisture, but your individual results may vary greatly. Before trying a mask, apply a small amount of the mixture to a test strand in order to determine if the treatment is right for your hair.
Homemade Hair Treatment
For Shiny Hair:
Shiny hair is indeed fabulous and can boost the hairs beauty as only healthy hair radiates so trying different methods to enhance your hairs shine can only be beneficial. Honey and olive oil are a perfect combination to moisturize and restore the hairs shine so a mixture of honey and olive oil applied on the hair and left to work its magic for about 20 minutes should do the trick. Turn to this type of natural homemade hair treatment about once a week or once every two weeks if your hair is not very dry. To remove the mixture wash and condition your hair as usual.
For Dry, Frizzy Hair:
Dry hair is difficult to style as it lacks moisture and thus it feels rough and porous to the touch. Dry hair is also more difficult to style so a moisturizing hair treatment is necessary. There are a variety of ingredients which have intense moisturizing properties you can use on your hair such as:
Rosemary and olive oil are known for their moisturizing and hair strengthening properties so they are a perfect mix for dry, frizzy hair. Heat some olive oil and add some broken rosemary springs to allow the rosemary essence to mix with the oil. Allow the oil to cool off and while it is still warm (not hot so it won’t burn you) apply the olive oil on your entire hair massaging gently the oil into the scalp as well as the entire hair. Wrap your head in a warm towel and let the oil work on your hair for 30 minutes. Wash and condition as usual.
Olive oil and avocado are known for their highly moisturizing properties so mixing these two ingredients and creating a hair mask can only be beneficial. Mix some olive oil with a half crushed avocado and apply the mixture on your entire hair massaging the mixture in. If you have an oily scalp and only the ends of the hair dry, apply the mixture on the dry part only avoiding the scalp. Allow the hair treatment to work for about 30 minutes after which you can wash and condition your hair as usual.
For a Flaky, Itchy Scalp:
A flaky and itchy scalp can be caused by an imbalance of the scalps pH, so a mixture of water, apple cider vinegar and mint can help restore that balance and sooth the itchiness. Mix a cup of water with a half a cup of apple cider vinegar and heat the mixture until hot. Apply the mint leaves in the hot mixture and let it cool off. When the mixture has chilled apply the mixture on your entire hair and massage the scalp. Wrap your hair in a towel and leave the mixture to sit on your hair for about 15 minutes after which you can wash and condition your hair as usual.
