Natural hair conditioning treatments from kitchen
Do you want to have a natural silky hair? Actually who doesn't! but we all have heard of the expensive hair products in the market and we all heard of blow dry keratin treatment but most of them are expensive and temporarily condition the hair but the natural hair masks are very good and effective. They make wonders for the hair. You just need to stop being sceptical and try them. The good results might need little bit of patience. Everything here is pure, natural and 100% safe to use. Many of these hair masks are very well traditionally for many years in many different parts in the world. Some of the ingredients are essential oils and fruits, such as honey, banana, olive oil and etc....
Honey : is very useful from the scalp to the end of the hair. It can restore dull or damaged hair shaft as it attracts moisture to inside the hair. It gives nutrition to the hair's follicles for a healthy hair growth. It's also an antioxidant.
Yogurt: it's well known in India as a natural beauty tip for hair and skin. Yogurt really works wonders for conditioning and restoring hair's moisture and I would personally recommend it. It hydrates and makes it more manageable and detangled. Applying it to the hair can end spliting and break ups. It also stop frizzes and boosts the circulation for faster hair growth.
Olive oil: according to a recent study, olive oil is one of the best and few oils that penetrate the hair's shaft, so it works from the inside to outside. It moisturizes the hair and makes it look shinny and health. The frequent use of olive oil can darken the hair, so be careful if you have a colored hair.
Coconut oil: it's well known to the Asians for it's great benefits for the hair. It's worthy of using it as it's wonderful for the hair. A scientific study has shown that it's the best oil that penetrates the hair's shaft to reconstruct it. The use of coconut oil prevents the protein loss in a damaged and undamaged hair. it's capable of retaining moisture as it's a stable oil in which it's doesn't breakdown or evaporate. Coconut oil also maintains the hair's original colour and prevent gryness. Massaging the scalp with coconut oil maintains its moisture and prevent dandruff. The hair absorbs the oil to inside leaving no residues. Coconut oil is normally solid in room temperature but you can warm it to become liquid.
Castor oil : It is thick oil derived from the castor plant. It contains fatty acids, omega-6 and omega-9. Castor oil is one of the best oils to promote hair regrowth. There are hundreds of testimonials from people who used it and increased their hair growth 3-5x the normal rate. It prevents hair loss and thinning. Apply castor oil constantly to your scalp and you would see results in a few weeks as it promotes blood circulation. It conditions and coats the hair's shaft to leave it soft and shiny.
Coconut milk: is great for hair growth as castor oil. It contains fats and vitamin E , niacin and foliate which enhance blood circulation. It can also be used for very damaged and dry hair as a deep conditioner to make hair more manageable and healthy. You can use it by dipping a piece of cotton into coconut milk and put the coconut milk on the scalp and hair. It gives a cooling sensation on the scalp. It nourishes and moisturizes the hair naturally from the roots to the ends.
Avocado oil: is very good for the hair's health in overall. It is rich of many protein and vitamins, like A, E, B6 and D as well as magnesium, amino acids, folic acids, copper and iron.
Banana: contains natural oils, potassium and 75% water which will leave your hair very manageable and soft. This natural treatment would leave your shinny with soft locks and frizzes free all day.
Alvoe vera oil: works by binding to the hair's molecules which evaporates in less time than water and that makes it an excellent moisturising ingredient. It makes it more hydrated to a more extended time.
Eggs: are rich of proteins, fats and vitamins. Egg's yolk are very good for dry hair while egg's white are suitable for naturally oily hair. You can also apply a whole egg if your hair is normal.
Here are some of the best natural deep conditioners that I recommend that you mix and apply to your hair. However, you can make a hair mask on your preference using the above ingredients. Please apply the masks on a pre-washed and dry hair :
Hair mask 1: mix 1 banana, 2 Tbsp milk and honey as a deep hair conditioner. You can blend the banana with few drops of coconut milk in the blender to be very smooth for your hair. Then apply the mixture to your hair and cover all your hair with a shower cap and use a hair dryer to help mask be absorbed for minimum 30 minutes. When time is up co-wash your hair.
Hair mask 2: mix 3 Tbsp of pure henna powder (you can use colorless henna if you don't want color your hair ), 3 Tbsp yogurt and 1Tbsp coconut oil and 1 Tbsp Sesame oil. Then apply the mask to your washed and dry hair, wear shower cap for minimum 1 hour.Then rinse your hair very well. You might need to take your comb with you to the bathroom to take off the henna from your hair and then co-wash your hair.
Hair mask 3 :1 banana, 1/2 avocado, 2 Tbsp coconut milk, 1 Tbsp honey and 1 Tbsp mayonnaise or 1 egg yolk. Mix all ingredients in the blender until it's all puree with no chunks. Spread the mixture on all your hair and focus on the areas that tend to be very dry (If some are left out you can store in the frigerator for next time).Then cover with a shower cap and use a hair dryer on a low heating setting to speed the mixture to soak into your hair. Then rinse very well and wait few days before you shampoo to not negates the treatment effects.
