Let your hair speak for itself

real-fouzWe usually love looking for the next big thing when it comes to hair treatments and masks. We are willing to try whatever our friends or family members suggest to us. However, going for all of these expensive options, and clinics wont really do much in comparison to what you have in your own kitchen. It is nice to pamper ourselves every once in a while and choose a luxurious hair treatment, but keep in mind that mosts of the treatments include products you can find at home.

Another important matter that girls need to understand is, not everything will work on you how it did on others. Girls with thinning/damaged hair can’t style or colour their hair as often or the same way as girls with thicker/healthier hair. You need to truly understand the type of hair, as well as the weaknesses your hair suffers from.

From there you can work out what will work for you, however, I believe that regardless if what type of hair you have, whether it is healthy and shiny or thin and exhausted hair, there are a few options that are always safe, and the more organic and more basic the option was, the healthier it is for your hair.

Here are few masks you can try for your hair in the comfort of your own home! For damaged hair: 1- Eggs mask: you’ll need 1-2 eggs, depending on the length of your hair, add one cup of milk and a few teaspoons of olive oil and a squeeze of lemon. Leave it on your hair for about 15 minutes and give yourself a good head massage! 2- Banana mask: Grab 2 bananas, one tablespoon of coconut oil and olive oil and one tablespoon of honey. Mash them up together and make sure you dont have any chunks of banana, leave on for 5 minutes then rinse. Quick and easy!

For oily hair: Oily hair can be an annoying problem but there a few masks you can try out to help: 1- Strawberries masks: use half a cup of strawberries and mash them up. Place on your hair, you can add an oil of your choice however I’d leave it alone as strawberries trigger the production of sebum that removes the oils. 2- Egg whites and lemon: separate the egg whites from the egg, add one tablespoon of salt and squeeze one lemon to the mixture. Leave it on for 30 minutes and rinse off with warm water.

For dry hair: 1- Mayonnaise! A guilty pleasure for most of us. One of the easiest masks, just pack on the mayo to your hair starting from your scalp to the roots. It might smell funny, and you can add an essential oil of your choice. This will restore the moisture in your hair and will keep it looking shiny. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes.

For split ends:

1. Castor Oil: Use a few drops or a small amount of castor oil and work it in with your conditioner. This way its easier to rinse off and your split ends will still lock in the moisture.

2- Olive oil: For a while I’ve tried adding olive oil to my shampoo, it really made a difference after a few times. If you’re not comfortable doing that, then apply a mixture of olive oil, coconut oil and almond oil to your hair for about 30 minutes, every other week. It’s fun to try out these masks, especially that their ingredients cannot be harmful no matter what you do or how much you use them. It is extremely important to incorporate these hair masks to your beauty regimen. A few minutes a week will really show you a difference in your hair. Getting a trim every few months will also help with your hair’s health.

Let your hair speak for itself, not the color or style!

Till next week ladies xo.
