Keeping my hair healthy

23 Nov

All the styling and chemicals can really wear down on your hair and you are now starting to see it! What are some ways to replenish your hair without adding more chemicals? There are many natural treatments out there, you just need to find the one that fits your need and helps the most for your hair type. Thankfully there are ways to treat your hair with things your can find at your local grocery store. Even if you are a regular at the salon and they know healthy hair, your hair still gets bogged down with all the chemicals. So it is good to do some home treatments with natural supplements every once or twice a month to replenish the hair.

If your hair is lacking in shine you would want to make either some natural conditioner or some kind of mask. Conditioners would be something you would want to use if that store bought stuff is not helping and you simply need something to bring more life to your hair and something you can use daily. A mask, though, would be something that you only do every or every other month. Just a once-a-time thing to add life and shine to your hair. Two good masks are a Banana mask or a Yogurt mask.

For both masks, you would apply ingredients to damp hair and massage through. Leave it in for about 30mins. then rinse it out then shampoo and condition hair as normal.

Different natural, grocery store items, can be used to do many different things to your hair. They all affect the hair in different ways. You do have to be careful though of things that might alter your dyed color. Some acids in food can affect the chemicals in your hair. Home remedies, though are a great way to fix your hair at home and maintain your healthy hair in between salon appointments. Just always know how the ingredient will affect hair first.
