Natural Rescue Remedies!
Having troubles with your hair and want to take the natural route? We are coming to your hair’s rescue with some penny-saving tips for home remedies!
Natural oils are known for being great for the skin, nails and hair. Most people tend to be turned off by the idea of applying oils to their scalp because they fear it’ll make their hair look oily, but with two mild shampoos afterwards, your hair will feel clean yet hydrated. Oils can be used for hair growth, as a nourishing treatment, to control frizz, for a dry scalp, etc. Here I will give you some recipes for at-home treatments!
Frizz Control: Mix equal amounts of coconut oil and olive oil and warm it up slightly. Apply it from the roots of your hair to the ends of your hair and let it sit with a shower cap covering it for at least one hour. Rinse it out with warm water and shampoo with a sulfate and paraben- free product and then condition. You will be left with soft, naturally shiny hair!
Dandruff Demolisher: Hunt down some neem leaves from a local Indian grocery store or find some online! Neem leaves are an amazing natural remedy for many disorders including leprosy, skin ulcers, head-lice and many more. It is used a lot in medicine. Grind up some neem leaves and a couple of drops of tea tree oil and add it to coconut oil. Apply this paste to your scalp and let it sit for about an hour. Rinse off with a mild shampoo and condition. Repeating this once a week will help to relieve an itchy scalp and decrease the dandruff.
Hair Loss: Pick up some castor oil from your local drug store, it is about to become your best friend! Castor oil is great for the skin and hair. It has antibacterial and antifungal properties which fight against dandruff, folliculitus and scalp infections. There is also ricinoleic acid in castor oil which promotes circulation in the scalp which helps with hair regrowth. With damp hair; apply a small amount of castor oil and coconut oil (coconut oil to water down the castor oil a little) and massage into scalp for a couple of minutes. Let sit with a shower cap on for at least an hour. Rinse afterwards and shampoo and condition. Repeat 1-2 times a week to really see a long term result!
Hope these tips help you on your way to naturally luscious locks! Healthy hair is happy hair!
