It is common knowledge that hair treatment can be a fickle thing. One moment there is nothing wrong with your hair, and it looks gorgeous even with minimum effort. The next, the scalp has suddenly run dry, or the hair has become brittle with no warning at all. These are the main reasons why many people spend so much money on hair treatment, but that said there are some establishments out there that provide excellent service at a reasonable price, such as Hairdressers Birmingham.
You do not necessarily have to go out to treat your hair, however. Here are just a few methods to treat pesky hair conditions using ingredients that you can find right at home!
The power of the egg
You would be surprised how much a single egg can treat all kinds of different hair conditions. The application is all about blending around half a cup of the mixture and applying it to your hair – right before shampooing, but if your hair is not particularly damaged, using the whole egg is a good idea. If your hair is too oily and you want to fix that, make use of only egg whites.
Brittle or damaged hair, on the other hand, will benefit most from egg yolk and as stated above, half a cup of the chosen mixture will do wonders. If you are using the whole egg or the yolk, it would be a good idea to utilise it once a month, whereas the whites can be used every two weeks or so.
A refreshing mixture of lemon and olive
Olive oil and lemon juice sound like they would taste delicious with a sprinkle of parmesan on a baguette, but that is not the only use of this magical combination. If you happen to suffer from an itchy scalp – one of the most common issues with hair – mix about two tablespoons of lemon juice, olive oil and water into a bowl and afterwards, use the concoction by massaging it onto already damp hair.
It will work even better if you let it sit for about twenty minutes before rinsing and shampooing but make sure not to do it too often; once every other week would be a perfect balance.
Sweetening the effects of dehydration and sun damage
Last but certainly not the least, one of the easiest ways to fix damage caused by the sun and other drying effects is by utilising honey. Take about a half cup of honey, mix a tablespoon of olive oil, so it is easier to apply, and massage it into damp hair. As always, give it twenty minutes to get the job done before rinsing and shampooing. It is a type of treatment that will get the job done best through a monthly application.
While it can be a pain to have to deal with irritated scalps and damaged hair, by utilising these easy treatments you will be making it much easier for your scalp and hair to recover. Why not give some of these methods a try?
