8 Homemade Hair Treatments

Ever looked at your grandmother’s hair and your mother’s hair and wonder how come they are so beautiful? I have done this many times. One of the reasons I have done this is because of jealousy. Their straight, long and silky hair never fails to catch anyone’s eye when they are around. The reasons behind this, which girls of this generation might find funny, are yoghurt, eggs and honey.
The question is how can breakfast items be turned into hair treatments or hair products? Didn’t they have shampoos and conditioner? No! They made them all themselves.
Some hair treatments from old times which still work are as follows:
Eggs With Crems And Yogurt For Healthy Hair
• This treatment is for all hair types. If you have normal hair, you should use one whole egg to condition your hair. If you have oily hair, then only use the egg whites and egg yolks for dry and brittle hair.
Use half a cup of the egg mixture you choose according to your hair and apply it to clean, damp hair. Then leave this mixture for 20 minutes and rinse with cool water and then shampoo hair. The mixture for normal hair and dry hair can be applied once a month. For oily hair, you can apply it every two weeks.
• This treatment is specially applied on dull hair. Massage damp hair with half a cup of sour cream or plain yogurt and then keep it for 20 minutes. Rinse this with warm water followed by cool water and then shampoo your hair normally. This treatment can be applied every month.
Lemon Juice Olive Oil For Itchy Scalp
• If you have an itchy scalp massage the mixture of two table spoon lemon juice, two table spoon olive oil and 2 table spoon water. Let the mixture be applied for 20 minutes, then rinse it and shampoo hair. This mixture can be applied every week.
• For limp or fine hair, mix half cup of flat beer (make sure to deplete carbonation from the beer) with 1 teaspoon of light oil, preferred is sunflower or canola) and a raw egg. Apply this mixture t clean and damp hair and let it remain for 15 minutes. Rinse it with cool water then.
• For dry and sun damaged hair or hair loss, massage a mixture of half cup of honey into clean, damp hair and sit with it for 20 minutes. Rinse it with warm water then. To loosen the honey, it is preferred to add 1 or 2 table spoon of olive oil. For extremely dry hair, trying mixing a mixture of honey with 1 or 2 table spoon of protein rich.
• For oily or greasy hair, make a mixture of cornmeal into a salt or pepper shaker and sprinkle it on dry hair and scalp until it is finished. After 10 minutes of application, brush the sprinkles out using a paddle hairbrush.
• For frizzy hair, massage a mashed up half avocado into clean and damp hair. Sit with this for 15 minutes and then rinse it. Use moisturizers like sour cream or egg yolks.
• For residue-ridden hair, make a thick paste of baking soda (1 or 2 table spoon) with small amounts of water and massage it into damp hair and keep it for 15 minutes. Rinse with water and then shampoo your hair.
