Did you know that you can save hundreds of dollars by using homemade recipes to take care of your hair? Not only that, but if you have a very sensitive scalp, you can benefit from the all natural ingredients that these homemade hair remedies contain. You won’t risk having adverse reactions such as allergies or irritations, since there are no allergens or chemicals present.
Also, homemade recipes for hair are so simple to do, and you can even do it several times a week to maintain the hair beauty and strength of your tresses.
For people who have dandruff, you can do more than just wash your hair everyday with anti-dandruff shampoo. You can create a hair rinse using thyme to get rid of this fungal irritation on your hair. Boil a handful of fresh thyme leaves in water for about five minutes. Let it sit to cool before straining off the leaves.
While leaning over a bowl, pour this solution onto your hair, catching the liquid so you can use it again. Do not immediately shampoo your hair after using this anti-dandruff rinse. The aromatic oils in thyme will help stunt the growth of fungi that cause that itching and flaking associated with dandruff.
You can use a hair mask to care for your hair after it has become dry or overly damaged from the use of hair chemicals. A common mask that you can apply on your mane is composed of beaten egg and a few tablespoons of olive oil. These fatty foods help retain moisture on the scalp as well as stimulate growth of healthy hair.
Apply this oil and egg mixture on your hair from roots to tips, and also massage your scalp. Cover your head with a shower cap to allow your body heat to let the oils penetrate each strand of hair. Leave on for thirty minutes before rinsing completely with a mild shampoo, such as a baby shampoo.
You can also create a hair mask using dairy products, because they are good sources of protein which also help hair grow strong and healthy. Examples of these are yogurt and milk. Honey may also be added to hair masks to make strands shinier and smoother. Always remember to keep the hair mask on for at least half an hour before rinsing the mixture off using mild shampoos. Try these hair masks at least twice a week to maintain lovely, soft, and strong hair.
