How to Make Your Own Hair Treatments From Kitchen Ingredients

You don’t have to buy expensive products to achieve a beautiful and healthy hair. Some of the best ingredients are found in your own kitchen. A lot of the upscale hair products available in boutiques are made with natural ingredients such as avocado, olive oil, berries, citrus fruits, and green tea-all available in food sections in supermarkets for a fraction of the price of hair products. Making your own homemade products is not only cheap, but healthier and more nutritious than commercially available products made in the lab, which are usually mixed with preservatives and chemicals! Making your own hair care products will ensure it is made from 100% pure and natural ingredients.

Fruity mask

Treat your hair once a week or every two weeks with a luxurious mask using strawberry or avocado. This will keep it shiny and revitalized. Strawberries contain acids that will leave it glossy and conditioned. To make a strawberry mask, mash eight strawberries and mix in a tablespoon of mayonnaise. On damp or washed hair, massage the mix in your scalp up to the tips of your hair. Cover your head with a shower cap and a warm towel on top and leave it on for 10 minutes. Wash your hair thoroughly with shampoo and conditioner. Avocado fruit is another hair shine solution that you can use. Mash an avocado with a teaspoon of baking powder and a tablespoon of olive oil. Massage the mixture on your scalp and hair, from roots to tips. Leave the mask on for 15 minutes and wash it thoroughly with shampoo and conditioner.

Repairing dry hair

Cry hair can be easily repaired by massaging your scalp and hair from the roots to the tips, with two drops of safflower oil, flaxseed oil, coconut oil or olive oil. This will replenish its lost moisture and repair dry and damaged hair.

Remedying oily hair

A quick remedy is talcum powder. Apply the talcum powder on the roots of your hair. Hair should be damp and towel-dried before applying. Let the powder sit on your hair for a few minutes before washing it out.

Homemade anti-dandruff solution

To cure or reduce dandruff flakes, pour vinegar on your scalp and massage your scalp gently, taking care not to scratch with your nails. Instead, use the tips of your fingers to loosen the flakes. Leave your scalp and hair to dry for a few minutes and wash your hair and scalp with shampoo and conditioner. Do this once a day until the flakes disappear.

All day hairspray

Hair can get dull and frizzy during the course of the day or under the hot sun. To keep it revitalized and manageable, you can make your own hairspray using lemon or orange. Chop one lemon or orange fruit and place it in a cup adding two cups water. Bring the solution to a boil until half of the water evaporates. Let it cool and strain and put the solution in a spray bottle. Store the hairspray in a refrigerator and bring with you as an all-day hair spray that will not damage it.
