Recipes for Homemade Hair Care Treatments and Remedies
DIY treatments are green and natural alternative to the aggresive chemical hair products.
For most women, the mane is what enhances their beauty and style, and makes them attractive. This is the reason, women always search and experiment with new products and techniques to keep their locks healthy, shiny and gorgeous. The common products that most women use are shampoos, conditioners, masks, hot oils, intense special treatments for fast recovery, mousse, sprays, gels, wax, etc.
Even though these hair care products are constantly advertised like the holy grail of the hair care, there is always a doubt if they really work to improve the hair or, in fact, damage it in long term use due to the harmful chemicals they may contain.
How can we be sure that our hair care products do not contain unnecessary, aggressive chemicals? Of course, if we make them ourselves. The homemade hair care treatments become more and more preferred as a safe alternative to the chemical products, which improve the look in short terms, but in long terms they fail.
There are so many hair care recipes and remedies you can choose from.
On the market there are ready-made products that do not contain harsh chemicals and are mostly organic and natural, contain naturally derived ingredients that actually work amazing to improve hair condition. The problem is that the quality natural and organic hair care products are pricey. In most cases they are worth it but if you cannot afford them, the homemade hair care masks, shampoos and conditioners will give you the same amazing results.
The homemade treatments could be used to revitalize lifeless hair, to add shine to dull locks, to soothe itchy scalp, to get rid of dandruff, to reduce hair loss, and even to replace conventional hair products like shampoos, conditioners, styling products.
The advantage of the natural ingredients is that they work to restore the balance. Do not wonder if you find a single product as an ingredient in recipes for different problems and hair types. This is the nature’s miracle! The best part is that the preparation requires minimal efforts and the basic ingredients could be found in every kitchen.
The most common ingredients, used in the homemade hair care recipes are:
• Fresh fruits;
• Natural cold pressed oils, like extra virgin olive oil, almond oil, jojoba oil, etc.;
• Essential oils;
Personally, my favorite products are the oils. They could be used as they are, this is the best part, do not require any preparation, or could be added to conventional hair products. Before shampooing, I usually massage my scalp with almond or coconut oil. The oil soothes the skin of my head and makes my hair soft and shiny.
