Are you having issues managing your hair, battling with breakage and hair loss?
Try this out!
1). Coconut Milk Treatment
Coconut milk is rich in protein and fatty acids, which makes it great for conditioning, strengthening and minimizing hair breakage. It also protects you hair from the damage of constant sun exposure. Personally, I’ve loved using coconut milk on my hair during the summer because it has been great for restoring shine and softness to my beach hair. You’ll need: 1 cup coconut milk, 1 peeled and mashed avocado, 1 tbsp of honey (Be sure to apply to freshly shampooed hair). Combine all ingredients in a small bowl.
You can apply cool mixture directly to hair, or preheat mixture in microwave for 30-45 seconds. When applying, massage mixture into hair and scalp. Wrap hair in a hot towel or cover with shower cap for 15 min-60 min. Rinse out with shampoo/conditioner and style as usual.
Honey is a natural humectant, which means that it holds on to water molecules.This makes it a great moisturizer. Honey hair treatments are great for conditioning hair and adding sheen. Honey is also super rich in sulfur, iron, zinc and vitamins B1, B2, B3- all nutrients that aid in hair growth. You’ll need: ½ cup honey, 2 tablespoon olive oil (Be sure to apply to freshly shampooed hair) Mix honey with olive oil. Heat mixture in microwave for 30 seconds. Apply to hair, then cover head with shower cap for 15-30 minutes. Rinse out with conditioner and style as usual.
3). Papaya Treatment
Papaya is great for maintaining the natural shine and softness of hair. It is also rich in vitamins, minerals and enzymes that help nourish hair and remove unwanted residues from product buildup.
You’ll need: 1 raw papaya, ½ cup yogurt (Be sure to apply to freshly shampooed hair) Remove seeds and skin of papaya.
Blend it in a blender and add half a cup of yogurt to mix.
Apply this paste to your hair and scalp. Cover hair with a shower cap for 15-30 minutes. Rinse out with conditioner and style as usual.
