You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars for hair salon treatments to get a beautiful and healthy head of hair. With just a few breakfast ingredients, you would be able to achieve this. Eggs, yogurt and honey may sound like breakfast but they are also great for your hair. We have listed down some of the best natural ingredients to give your locks a beauty fix.
Raw Egg for All Hair Types
Eggs are not just for breakfast, you can actually use raw eggs to keep your hair smooth. The egg yolk is packed with fats and proteins which are natural moisturizers. The egg white also has bacteria-eating enzymes. These enzymes help remove excess oil in the hair and scalp.
Both the egg yolk and the egg white are good to use for conditioning normal hair. If you have an oily type of hair, use only egg whites. If you have dry, brittle hair, use only the yolk. Use a half cup of whichever part of the egg appropriate for your hair type and make sure that your hair is clean and damp when applying the raw egg. You can use a larger amount if this is not enough to coat all of your hair and the entire scalp. Let the raw egg do its magic for 20 minutes and then rinse with cool water. Don’t use hot or warm water as this would cook the egg on your locks. Shampoo your hair after. Treat your hair with yolk once a month. The same is true when using whole egg to treat hair. Egg white hair treatment can be used every 2 weeks.
Dairy Products for Dull Hair
Wearing a dull hair? Dairy products can undo the dulling effects of both styling products and pollution. Dairy products such as sour cream and plain yogurt contain lactic acid which gently removes dirt. Its milk fat moisturizes the locks.
Apply half a cup of sour cream or plain yogurt into your damp hair with a massaging action. Leave it for 20 minutes and then rinse using warm water and then cool water afterwards. Apply shampoo on your hair like you normally do. You can use dairy products to treat the hair every other week.
Lemon Juice and Argan Oil for Itchy Scalp
Can’t stop scratching your scalp? Get rid of flakes caused by stress, poor diet, weather and other factors with a mixture of Argan oil and lemon juice. Lemon juice will eliminate loose and dry flakes on the scalp and hair while the Argan oil will keep both the scalp and locks moisturized. The oil also helps bring down overproduction of sebum in the scalp to a manageable level. Excessive oil in the scalp traps in more dirt which can lead to flakes and itching.
Grab a small bowl and mix a couple tablespoons of lemon juice, a couple tablespoons of Argan oil and a couple tablespoons of water. Massage the mixture into your scalp and leave it for 20 minutes then rinse the hair. Shampoo the hair like you would do normally. You can use this treatment every other week.
