Last week was about the basic and simple natural hair remedies - but this week, I’m sure you will be surprised!
Did you know that….
In addition to head and shoulders dandruff shampoo, Lemon is the number one ingredient for dandruff or flaky hair because the acid in the lemon juice helps clear out your hair from any loose flakes on your scalp. Try mixing two tbsp. of fresh lemon juice with two tbsp. olive oil (to give healthy moisture to the hair once all the flakes are out) and 2 tbsp water and put it in your wet hair. You can then wash it out with warm water. Another great thing Lemons do which is known worldwide is highlights! Take a lemon and squeeze it over your head. Then sit out in the sun – the longer the better!! Don’t forget to wash it out after and see results instantly!
Frizzy hair is my pet peeve. No matter how many creams and oils and techniques I try I just can’t seem to get rid of it. For some reason, I think I’m not the only one with this problem. So I present to you (drum roll…) The Avocado! Sounds crazy but just give it a try and before you know it avocado will be the first thing on your food shopping list! Their combination of oils which are like the natural oils from our skin and their protein make the best cream for taming, settling and smoothing frizzy hair. So go ahead, mash up and avocado and have fun smearing it in your hair! For best results, let it sit there for fifteen minutes before washing it out.
Ever wake up in the morning with oily hair? No time to wash it but it looks horrible and you just can’t find that emergency pre-tied bandana to cover it up? Yes, baby powder should do the trick but it might leave your hair looking a little white. Try Cornstarch by taking one tbsp in your hand and sprinkling it in your hair. Leave it there for ten minutes and then brush it out. Tadam! Your hair is now fresh and clean!
Of course, we saved the best for last! Bet you didn’t know that Beer is the best remedy for volume in your hair!! Beer actually contains yeast and just like the yeast makes dough rise, it makes hair “rise” too! However, it must be mixed with some other ingredients too. Mix half a cup of beer with 1 tsp oil and a raw egg. Pour it into your wet hair. Let it sit for fifteen minutes and wash it out.
Trust me, once you give those a try, these food products will become the first item on your food shopping list! Good Luck!
