DO IT YOURSELF HAIR MASKS
Sometimes the best hair treatments aren’t in the beauty aisle, but in your kitchen press. The most obvious benefit to a DIY hair treatment is financial, but other benefits include the ability to customize treatments for your own needs. If you have a specific oil you prefer for its scent etc… you can use that more heavily, or if you have allergies to certain ingredients then you can avoid them. Here are some simple recipes for hair masks that you can mix up in your kitchen.
Thicken Your Hair
Pumpkin is packed full of potassium so it is a great source for promoting hair regrowth. It’s also rich in vitamin A which is great for the scalp. Try the following for thickening your hair:
Pumpkin Hair Conditioner
· 2 cups pumpkin (chopped and cooked)
· 1 tablespoon coconut oil
· 1 tablespoon honey
· 1 tablespoon yogurt
In a food processor or blender, puree the pumpkin and yogurt. Next, add the coconut oil and honey ensuring that the mixture is smooth. Apply the mixture to damp hair. Cover your hair with a plastic cap, and let it sit for fifteen to twenty minutes. Wash out thoroughly using your everyday shampoo and conditioner, and style as usual.
Any quick tip – because you’re worth it!
This this mask is ideal for stronger, shinier hair. The two most important ingredients in any hair mask are protein and moisture, so get the maximum one-two punch with egg whites for protein and coconut oil for moisture. Mix together in a bowl and heat for 30 seconds in the microwave. Simple, am I right? Apply to damp hair for at least 15 minutes and then shampoo out!
