You’ve seen healthy hair in those commercials where the girl has fantastic flowing hair, but you don’t have it. Between the hairstylist appointments and the array of products seemingly needed to maintain beautiful hair, it’s simply too costly and time-consuming.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. The alternative path involves the utilization of natural ingredients. What’s more, making the switch leads to a more eco-friendly lifestyle.
The following are a few natural methods that’ll get your hair as healthy as possible.
Addressing Dry Hair
One thing no one wants to see is dry hair. When you are dealing with this problem, it seems like your hair is dull, and no one wants that. If you’re going to reverse this issue naturally, it may be an excellent time to start feeding your hair nutrients. You can do this by eating foods that are nutrient-rich like fish, but you can also do this directly. A good way to give your hair some nutrients is by doing an avocado treatment. Apply fresh avocado to wet hair, and let the fruit sit a few minutes before rinsing it off. Do this a couple of times until you see results.
Dealing with Dandruff
It’s heartbreaking to find out you’ve got dandruff. You can’t wear black without worrying someone will see it. You don’t want anyone touching your hair because they might notice dandruff. The good thing is there are many tips for how to get rid of dandruff once and for all. For one, you can add a little tea tree oil or peppermint oil to your natural shampoo; a few drops should be enough. You can also use aloe vera to get rid of dandruff since this little gel is antibacterial and antifungal.
Treating Oily Hair
Another problem some folks deal with is oily hair. This hair is hard to comb, feels icky to touch, and usually gets dirty pretty quickly. On top of that, it doesn’t look too appealing, but you can solve this issue naturally in several ways. One of the most effective ways to get rid of greasy hair is to squeeze the juice of one lemon into a cup of water. Make sure the mixture is blended well before applying it to your hair. Place a cap on your head, and let the mixture do its job for 10 minutes before rinsing it off.
Getting Rid of Split Ends
Most people have to deal with split ends at some point. The moment you see them, your whole day is ruined. Some just cut the split ends so that they don’t have to deal with this problem, but cutting the hair you’ve been working hard to grow doesn’t seem right. What you might want to consider is doing a natural oil treatment. You can use coconut oil, olive oil, or almond oil to do this treatment. Apply the oil to the scalp and all over your hair, especially those split ends. Cover your head up with a clean shower cap, and let the oil work its magic overnight. Wash your hair like you usually would the next day.
Fixing Thinning Hair
Sometimes, your hair starts to thicken because you have been using hair products with many chemicals, or maybe you’re having an allergic reaction. You’re not going to be using those kinds of hair products anymore. If there is an allergic reaction, hopefully, you’ve figured it out. The best way to re-thicken your hair is to feed it some protein. To do that, you might want to try the egg treatment. What you want to do is scramble two eggs and apply them to your hair. Grab your clean shower cap, and keep the egg in your hair for 30 minutes or more. You can wash your hair like you normally would after this time has passed.
These are the most common hair issues you can address naturally. If your problem is something else, then go ahead and look for a natural solution because there is bound to be one.
