Natural Hair Treatment Tips

Damaged Hair

Four hair treatment tips to avoid damaged hair

By Guest Blogger Sunny from BuyandSellHair.com

All too common hair tasks such as styling, blow-drying and straightening can result in damaged hair. Most of us know the common hair treatments such as getting a regular trim, using color protective hair care products and deep conditioning every few weeks. However, there are a few alternative and more natural healthy hair tips that users at BuyandSellHair.com are reporting great success with. In addition to being more economical, these hair treatment tips have help helped other women grow hair faster while making it look and feel a whole load better.“Not Your Mother’s
Hair Treatment”

Warm Coconut Oil & Olive Oil

This 50/50 mixture is traditionally used to improve the general health of hair and help rid it of damaged hair. It’s suggested that you massage a small amount of the hair treatment mixture into your roots and scalp, leaving it for an hour before rinsing with lukewarm water and your usual shampoo.

Avocado Conditioner

Avocado can make a great eco-friendly conditioner which helps retain your hair’s moisture and hair health. Pick one of the brighter colored avocado’s which are nutrient rich. You need to remove the skin and seed and then crush it to form a thin paste. You’re then ready to apply it on damp hair which you should leave for at least 30 minutes. Once done, simply shampoo your hair with cold water.

Egg & Milk Mask

This concoction will give your hair a nice protein and calcium shot resulting in a gorgeous shine. For this mask you’ll need two eggs and a quarter glass of milk. Blend it together so that it’s nice and frothy and work all the mixture into the roots and ends of your hair. Allow it to soak whilst covered with a shower cap for 10 minutes. Then wash it out with your usual shampoo and conditioner treatment.

Beer Hair Treatment

Probably the most unusual of these hair treatments and one that only recently came to our attention was the use of beer to help repair damaged hair whilst increasing its shine and volume. These benefits apparently arise from the inherit protein and sugar that beer contains. You’ll need to take the beer into the shower with you and apply it from root to tip after you have shampooed and rinsed. You will need to have left the beer to go flat before applying and its best to use traditional ale or lager. Leave it for 2 minutes and then rinse with cool water and your regular conditioner to get rid of any unwanted scents. Actress Catherine Zeta Jones stands by this treatment which helps give it some credibility.

  2. Great tips for super daytime looks! For all-around hair care, we found that nothing works better to protect hair than a real satin pillowcase. We tested the organic satin cases from neero & ana. Kept hair in place, no drying, no thinning, no breakage. Extra hydrating for the skin too!
