When it comes to picking the best hair treatments made right at home, there are many options you can choose from. The most important thing is selecting the adequate treatment, that would have the best effect on your type of hair.
Did you know that the avocado oil is very similar to the one naturally released by our skin, therefore it’s mainly used for dry hair and psoriasis? Or that the gentle acid action of lemon is way better than many cosmetic products, so it is recommended if you want to get rid of dandruff?
For VERY DRY HAIR, honey is the best ally. Combining it with olive oil and half an avocado, you can make sure you get much better results (especially because honey is usually pretty hard to rinse and olive oil makes it more liquid).
Mix all the ingredients together until they become a liquid mass, then apply it to your hair, making sure you cover the whole hair. You should let it sit for at least half an hour and then rinse with warm water.
For THIN HAIR or when dealing with a massive hair loss, a highly recommended product is castor oil.
Whether is it combined with several ingredients or not, castor oil is very easy to apply on the hair and the expected results will appear pretty fast.
If you want to apply castor oil without any combination, the best way would be applying it before going to bed,tying your hair in a bun and covering it. In this way, your hair will absorb the nutrients from the oil and the effects will be even better.
In case you don’t have time to wash your hair in the morning, you can try applying the oil in the afternoon and letting it sit for 1 or 2 hours. I used to let it more, though, but I think this should be enough. Be careful to shampoo your hair very well, the last thing you wanna get are oily roots 😀
On the other hand, if you prefer combining castor oil with other nutritive ingredients, you can make a hair mask from an egg yolk, a spoonful of olive oil and a little lemon juice. I usually add a few drops of vitamin A and E, for an extra fortification. You should apply the mask to your hair and let it sit for about two hours, then rinse it very well.
You should mix a cup of yogurt with a whole egg, and you could optionally add a few spoonfuls of almond oil. If you don’t have almond oil, you can replace it with coconut or olive oil, so that the mask gets a more liquid consistency. In this case, half an hour is enough to let it sit, then you can rinse with warm water.
