Homemade remedies can be the perfect answer for dealing with all your hairstyle issues and dilemmas. They are not just a cheaper option but the ingredients used can be more beneficial than some hair care products. The best thing is that many of us already have them at home in our cupboards.
The Natural Conditioner
Egg is one of the most beneficial substances you can use to help your hair. Both elements of the egg, the yolk and the white, are beneficial for different purposes. The Yolk is rich in protein which can be used as a great moisturizer to deal with dry and damaged hair. The white, however, can be utilized to remove unwanted oils with its bacteria eating enzymes and to strengthen your hair.
The whole egg together can therefore be used as a multi purpose conditioner. The egg should be beaten to create a fluid mixture and then applied directly to the hair and left to work its magic for up to 20 minutes. To remove the mask the egg should be washed off with cold water, this is very important to remember as the egg will cook if the water is too hot and no one wants scrambled egg for hair. You can then wash your hair as normal with shampoo and conditioner. Your hair will be brilliantly shiny and sleek as a result of this excellent treatment.
Repair Broken Hair
Beer is a great substance for preventing hair breakage due to it being rich in Vitamin B and Amino Acids. However it can also boost the volume and shine of your hair while making it soft to touch. It is very simple to do, just place the beer in a glass or bowl to let the fizz go flat. Use the beer as a rinse and mix with water and wash off using shampoo and conditioner. This is a great way to repair damaged hair.
Honey contains numerous vitamins which can work wonders for your hair. The honey adds moisture when applied to the hair. One of the main contributions honey can give is the incredible shine it leaves. Apply the honey directly to the hair and rinse with warm water after 20 minutes to reap the benefits.
