All Natural Hair Treatments

Winter is here and its time to nourish your locks with some all natural hair treatments.  Dry, cold air can do a number on your hair.  Try these home remedies to get your tresses shiny and ready for your holiday parties and shindigs.

1. Egg



These goodies are filled with healthy fats and proteins perfect for all natural hair treatments.  If you have hair that is prone to oil, use only the egg whites.  Hair that is dry should go for the egg yolks.  Mix about 1/2 a cup of whichever part of the egg fits your needs and slather it on unwashed, damp hair.  To get the full effect, the egg must stay on for twenty minutes.  Shampoo and condition and feel the softness!


3. Olive Oil and Lemon



This olive oil and lemon mixture will reduce flaking and add some extra moisture for dry skin.  Combine two tablespoons of lemon juice (fresh is best), olive oil, and water, then massage onto your scalp.  Let the mixture set for about twenty minutes, then rinse and shampoo and condition.  The lemon will help exfoliate your scalp while the olive oil moisturizes.

6. Avocado



Avocados have a protein to fatty acid ratio that does wonders for frizzy hair.  Mash half an avocado in a bowl and apply to washed hair that has been towel dried.  Let sit for fifteen minutes, then rinse and style. 

Yogurt



Plain yogurt, high in probiotics, will help condition hair and increase hair growth.  For a great conditioning treatment that will also remove residue, blend 1/2 cup of yogurt until smooth and apply to hair. Wrap hair in a towel and wash after fifteen minutes.  Add an egg to the mixture for some extra frizz reduction.

9. Honey



Try putting a bit of honey on your hair.  Leave it in for fifteen minutes, rinse then shampoo and condition.  Your hair will feel soft and look super shiny and amazing!

10. Cold Water



Did you know that simply changing up the temperature of your water while you are rinsing can actually make your hair look beautiful?  Hot water opens up the pores of your hair, while cold water closes them and keeps your hair shiny and soft!

13. Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse



Finally, I know that this one is going to smell, but it works!  I do it twice a month!  Vinegar washes away build up and leaves your hair beautiful!  All you do is rinse your hair in vinegar then shampoo and condition.  Your hair will feel smooth and soft!

These natural options may seem funny, but will do wonders for your hair’s health!
