After my previous post on the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer, a few commented that it’s rather pricey. And I have to agree, it is expensive!
While I think the elasticizer is amazing, I also understand that many people don’t want to spend that money.
There are many other ways to bring life back to your hair, and I’ve decided to put together a couple of natural hair mask recipes, that you can make yourself to give your hair back its bounce.
Coconut Oil is a common fix for practically everything these days, including your hair! The main benefit of coconut oil is that it helps retain the natural protein in your hair follicles.
It’s not for all hair types. Fine, thin hair usually lacks protein whereas, thicker, coarse hair does not. If you have fine hair then using coconut oil will make your hair stronger with more volume. And people rave about this!
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Extra Virgin Olive Oil has a ton of benefits for hair. It has anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe an itchy scalp. It’s a natural conditioner and helps lock in moisture, giving your hair added shine and softness.
Lastly, it’s packed with antioxidants which reduce the damage to hair. All these benefits help the hair to grow quicker and thicker.
Not only is honey delicious, but it’s also an emollient which means that it seals moisture in your hair, thereby, working as a conditioner. It is also rich in antioxidant properties which protects it from damage.
Honey is also great for preventing infections, psoriasis and dandruff due to its antibacterial and antiseptic qualities. With all these benefits, honey will boost your hair growth and add some life to your hair.
Most of you will be familiar with using lemon in your hair for natural highlights. I use it in my kid’s hair every summer and love it! What you may not be familiar with is the tons of other benefits it does to your hair.
Lemons are high in acid which helps tighten the hair follicles which in turn, helps prevent the hair from falling out.
They are also rich in vitamin C which boosts the production of collagen, which helps hair elasticity. Lemons also have anti-fungal properties which help keep the scalp healthy.
Who would have thought eggs could be good for your hair? Well, prepare to be amazed! Eggs are great for conditioning hair because they contain a lot of protein and egg protein helps rebuild damaged hair.
They also have conditioning factors that help make your hair stronger and in turn, help it grow faster and better. So go and save some of your eggs for your hair!
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar is popular in food, and it has many health benefits. It’s made from fermented apples which are enriched with vitamins, minerals and acids.
These benefits make it perfect for strengthening and adding shine to your hair. In particular, because it is very acidic, which helps balance out dry and brittle hair (which is usually higher in alkaline).
Apple Cider Vinegar is also high in vitamins B and C which are anti-inflammatory and help exfoliate the scalp reducing things like dandruff.
Avocados are not only delicious to eat but are also amazing for your hair (and your face too!). They are enriched with vitamins, fat, protein and natural oils which make them perfect for softening hair.
Natural oils help protect and rebuild damaged hair. They are packed with vitamins B and E which repair the scalp and help the hair grow.
As you can see there are many natural hair remedies and some of them do overlap in their benefits. All the different methods that I’ve mentioned can be combined with each other to create a customised hair mask for your hair.
Another factor that you should consider is how much mess and patience you have, an olive oil hair mask is a lot simpler than an avocado mask. You have to weigh up how much time and patience you have!
All the different natural DIY hair mask recipes that I’ve mentioned here are amazing and will do wonders for your hair.
