There are many products that are goaled to helping your hair become what magazines and society deems as perfect. Conditioning products that, while they might cost a pretty penny, are guaranteed to make your hair sleeker, shinier and reduce the number of split ends. And I’m sure many people have seen leave in conditioners and other such products that are the first steps to you owning a healthier head of hair. Not to say that these products do not work, because for the amount of money that you are spending on them they very well should. But there are alternative to hair care that some people may not be aware of, and if you are an individual who is looking for a way to keep your hair healthy without spending so much money, you might be surprised at how many natural remedies there are to healthy hair that can be found right in your own kitchen. The following is a list of natural ways that you can keep your hair looking healthy.
I can only imagine what you might be thinking at the thought of putting mayonnaise in your hair. Some people don’t even like eating mayonnaise, so having this added to the list of natural ways to keep your hair healthy may not sound very appealing. But there is something about the creamy quality as well as ingredients of mayonnaise that does wonders for your hair. How you would use the mayonnaise on your hair would be to scoop it out in spoonfuls and simply message it into your hair. Use enough to saturate your hair. If you have bad split ends, or your hair is too dry at the ends, make it a point to add the most mayonnaise in that area.
Now, typically this will help with dry hair, so if you are only trying to replenish your hair, you shouldn’t leave the mayonnaise in for very long. Also, if you are the type of person whose hair can become very greasy, you should not leave this product in for very long. About fifteen to thirty minutes for normal hair, and less for hair that can get greasy. After applying the mayonnaise you should rinse your hair out and wash it as normal.
Olive oil as we all know, is used for cooking. And while it is greatly used in our kitchen, many people did not know the benefits that it can have on our hair as well. It helps to give hair a shinier and sleeker look. It can really work great for those who like to process their hair with straight irons or curling irons or even blow drying. If you are one of those people, after washing your hair and after it has naturally dried without the use of a blow drier, you can take the olive oil and just apply a small amount in the palm of your hand. Rub your palms together and them message the olive oil throughout your hair, focusing on the ends of your hair rather than the roots seeing as how the ends are the always the most damaged parts of hair.
You can then take your straight iron or curling iron and style your hair as you normally would. The same rules apply to that of using mayonnaise. If your hair is prone to getting greasy, then you should not use an excessive amount, and this product does not need to be rinsed out after application.
I am sure that many people have seen products in the stores that contain coconut milk as an ingredient. So it is really no surprise that regular coconut milk by itself would be a healthy way to care for your hair. This product is sold in grocery stores for so much less than what it would cost if it was purchased as only an ingredient in a hair care product. This product would be messaged into the scalp and hair and leave your hair feeling remarkably softer than it did before. Also, if this product is used regularly, it can not only help to keep your hair softer, but also promote the growth of hair as well.
It is important that if you are using coconut milk (or even regular milk) on your hair, that you make sure to use a mild shampoo afterwards. You do not of course want to defuse what the coconut milk’s natural ingredients and what it is doing to your hair by using a strong shampoo.
Eggs and Curd Paste
This is by far the most unappealing of the natural remedies. Curd alone sounds unappetizing as well and unappealing to want to put in your hair. However, this mixture can really help to serve as a natural conditioner of your hair. By simply beating together eggs and curd, and then pasting it onto your hair and allowing it ample time to dry can help to lead to healthier hair. Once the paste has dried, you can rinse it off with cold water only, not hot.
I know it is safe to say that one, or all of these natural remedies to healthy hair do seem conventional. But if you are daring enough to test these ways to keep your hair healthy you might just surprise yourself at how inexpensive and reliable these products can be.
