A Little Hair Care

Lets give a few hair care tips here. Why not? We go over skin and body so much we might as well go over hair. Now before we start I’m going to let you know that I’m not a hair dresser, but I do research a lot (not wikipedia don’t worry). So we’re going to go over a couple remedies for different types of hair.

Dry or Brittle Hair

All four ingredients in this hair mask is deeply hydrating and nourishing to the scalp and hair, and is safe for sensitive or coarse hair.  

Mix together 2 tablespoons of honey, plain organic yogurt, olive oil and coconut oil.  Mix the ingredients together and massage into your hair, this will make your hair knot up a bit so make sure to put a hair pick in your shower. Leave the mess in your hair for about 5 to 10 minutes, or really as long as you’d like so that your hair can really absorb the ingredients. The olive oil, coconut oil and honey are all deeply hydrating for the hair where as the yogurt is not only moisturizing but it is also strengthening.

a little honey, honey?

If you’d like something a little simpler add egg into your shampoo: pour some shampoo into a small dish and crack an egg into the bowl and whisk then wash hair like normal. Or you could simply mix two eggs together and apply to dry hair, put a towel on your head and wait for 10 minutes. With eggs you need to be careful though, do NOT wash your hair in really hot water because you have the possibility to make your hair into scrambled eggs. The egg whites have protein for strengthening, and the yolk is packed full of vitamins A, D, and E which provide your hair with a shiny and healthy glow. Also, eggs have fatty acids which moisturize and condition like you wouldn’t believe.

Oily Hair

Mix together two cups of water and one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. When you’re in the shower shampoo and condition your hair, then rinse all the conditioner out then rinse your hair with the apple cider vinegar mixture and do not rinse it out of your hair if you want the best results, however if you feel yucky about that you can rinse it out. The smell will go away as it dries.  The apple cider vinegar is used to remove the excess oils as well as buildup or dandruff. The vinegar also gives hair an extra smoothness and shine.

Product  Buildup

Baking soda is your best friend. It can honestly be used on any hair type but it works fantastic for product buildup. There’s two different ways you can do this. First you can add two tablespoons of baking soda to three cups of water and use after shampooing, then condition. Either you can do that or you can put a quarter sized dollop of shampoo in your hand and then pour some DRY baking soda onto your shampoo and wash your hair like normal. This way is a little tough because this works best if you use baking soda that is dry, but it is in the shower. Anyways, this will clarify your hair and leave it shiny and silky. Do this one day a week to keep your hair nice and fresh.
