Soft, silky hair is a desire for many women. Unfortunately, most of us are stuck with dry, damaged hair and that’s not exactly the best look. Instead of spending money on expensive hair products to repair your hair, try these four home remedies. They will most definitely leave you with soft and shiny hair without breaking the bank.
1. Eggs. This is a classic at-home remedy for healthy hair. Eggs will instantly add shine and moisture. Whisk together an egg with a tablespoon of coconut oil or olive oil to create a paste. Apply the paste on damp hair and scalp. Cover with a shower cap and let it sit for 30 minutes. Then rinse with shampoo and conditioner.
2. Apple cider vinegar. Seriously, is there anything ACV can’t do?! ACV will leave your hair conditioned and clean because it removes excess build-up. Mix together equal parts ACV and water. After shampooing, pour the mixture on your hair/scalp and let it sit for a few minutes. Rinse with cold water.
3. Mayonnaise. Although some people can’t tolerate the smell or taste of mayo, it has great benefits for your hair. The amino acids and protein in full-fat mayo will leave your hair strong, soft and shiny. Massage a half cup of full-fat mayo into damp hair and scalp. Cover with a shower cap and let it sit for 30 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with a mild shampoo.
4. Avocado. This super food will deeply moisturize your locks. Mash one avocado with either a tablespoon of olive oil or one ripe banana. Apply the mixture onto damp hair, from roots to ends. Cover with a shower cap and let it sit for at least 30 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with a mild shampoo.
