Hair Care Fast Recipes

Use items that you already have on your kitchen to make your natural hair care cosmetics. It’s cheaper and much more healthier tnan bought ones.

Shine and Volume Boosting Hair
Combine one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and two cups of water in a bowl. Pour this mixture over clean hair. It works even better if you can catch the run-off in a 2-nd bowl and pour it over your hair once again, 3 or 4 times in a row. This rinse will restore the natural balance of your hair and add softness and shine. Fine hair will especially benefit from its strengthening properties.

Cleansing Rinse
Cleansing rinses are perfect for removing shampoo residue, which can weigh down your hair and make it lifeless. Combine one cup of vinegar and a couple of tablespoons of dried rosemary in a glass or microwaveable bowl. Put the mixture into the microwave for one minute . Then, use a spoon to crush the rosemary on the side of the glass bowl to release the fragrance. Strain the mixture and let it cool before using. Apply to hair after washing, leave on for two minutes, then rinse out with cool water. It sounds like more work than it is.

Hot-Oil Treatment
To make a hot-oil treatment for dry hair, place 1/4 cup of canola or soybean oil in a glass. Place the cup in a bowl of hot water and allow the oil to warm. Any vegetable oil will work, but canola oil is a good choice because it contains no added ingredients. Use hands to spread the warn oil through wet hair, leave it in for 2 minutes tops. Wash hair thoroughly with shampoo. Your hair will be softer and shinier!

Frizz Taming Conditioner
Remember: Do not use if you are allergic to eggs! In a bowl, mix together four tablespoon of plain yogurt (no low-fat) and one egg. After washing, pour the yogurt-egg mix onto your head and thoroughly massage it into your hair, working from roots to tips to make sure all your hair gets coated. Leave this on for five-ten minutes. Rinse out well with lots of cool (not hot or warm) water. This is especially good for softening up dry hair and preventing flyaways and frizzies.

Oily-Hair Treatment
Massage ground watermelon or cucumber (use a food processor for best results) into freshly washed hair and leave on your scalp for fifteen minutes before rinsing.

Dry-Hair Treatment
Massage mashed avocado into freshly swashed hair and leave on for fifteen minutes before rinsing.

Normal-Hair Treatment
Massage mashed peaches - no pits of course, into wet hair for fifteen minutes before rinsing.
