If you have a problem with dry hair, then it’s probably because your scalp lost its moisture and oils. No matter how we try to keep our scalp healthy, once it’s faced with pollution, styling products, blow dryers, vitamin deficiencies, and over-exposure to UV rays from the sun, our hair will be brittle and dry.
You will try to fix your hair with expensive conditioners and hair masks, but the downside is that they are also packed with chemicals. By trying to solve the problem, you will only end up making it worse. So what are some natural alternatives to harmful store products? Well, here you are!
- Egg Masks
Eggs are packed with lecithin and protein, which strengthens, moisturizes and conditions your hair. You can either use a whole egg, or just the egg white, depending on your preferences. Just mix two well-beaten eggs with a few tablespoons of water, and leave the mixture on your hair for 30 minutes. Wash your hair and use the mask at least 3 times a week to get rid of dry hair. You can also add some olive oil and/or honey for bonus points.
- Banana and Avocado
Make a paste out of a banana, an avocado and half a teaspoon of almond oil. Massage it on your scalp and hair, and leave it on for about 30-60 minutes. Once absorbed, wash it off with some mild shampoo and conditioner, repeating the process once a week. This mask will moisturize your hair and it will prevent split ends.
- The Beer Treatment
Do not throw away the remaining beer from that last party. Use it to treat your hair instead. Beer is rich in vitamin B and proteins, making it the best treatment to nourish, moisturize and repair damaged hair. Take a spray bottle and fill it with beer which you will use to spritz over your freshly washed, damp hair. Leave it on for about 10 minutes, and then rinse it with water.
- Coconut Oil and Curry Leaves
Coconut oil is well renowned for its moisturizing properties, and once combined with curry leaves, it’ll give the mask a nourishing kick. Just stir 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and 6 curry leaves over a medium flame and let the mixture cool for 5 minutes. Massage it on your scalp, leaving it on for 30 minutes before rinsing it off.
- The Honey Mask
Honey is one of the best moisturizing treatments that also eliminates bacteria off your scalp, protecting you from dandruff. Make a hair mask out of a ½ cup of honey and one teaspoon of olive oil, and leave it on for 20 minutes on your damp hair. Afterward, wash and condition regularly.
You don’t need to use expensive products to have pretty, healthy looking hair like the movie stars have. You’ll just need some proper hygiene and natural protection against the harsh environment. Try these remedies, and see which one works best for you.
