For many of us, the realization that our hair needs some desperate TLC strikes at the worst possible time. Whether it is on a Sunday evening or an hour before a big event, you decide that you need some serious intervention but simply can’t get to the hair salon. Rest assured, you can still have fabulous hair by opting for these home remedies to get salon perfect hair in your own home:
Use Avocados for Moisture
Avocados are certainly delicious in guacamole form and they do wonders for the body. Packed with healthy fats and 20 different vitamins and minerals, however, their benefits are not restricted to consumption. The oils and proteins avocados possess make them a go-to for health and beauty remedies as well. One of the best ways to harness the power of avocados is to infuse moisture into dry or lackluster locks. To pull it off, simply mash up half of an avocado and add a few drops of peppermint oil. Shampoo hair and then apply the mixture to your wet strands and leave it in place for 15-20 minutes. After this time has elapsed, rinse the hair, and rejoice in soft, moisturized locks that are full of volume.
Strengthen Hair with Eggs
Eggs are another food that comes with renowned health benefits when consumed but they are especially helpful for adding strength to brittle hair. To reap the benefits, combine egg yolks with lemon and then apply to dry hair—from the roots to the ends. Allow the mixture to sit in the hair for up to an hour and then rinse your hair clean. You will find that your hair is less prone to breakage and looks less dull.
Revive Color with Coco Powder or Grape Kool-Aid
If your brunette or black hair color needs rejuvenation but you can’t get to the salon, the solution is as simple as a trip to the grocery store. To add richness to your color, add half a cup of coco powder to half a cup of plain yogurt and apply to your hair. Let it sit in place for a few minutes and then shampoo hair as normal. The color will be vibrant and shiny. For blondes experiencing brassiness, adding a dash of grape Kool-Aid powder to your shampoo can just as easily remove orange hues.
Relieve an Itchy Scalp with Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is a hot commodity in the world of health food. It can be used for everything from a weight loss aid to improving the symptoms of diabetes. In the world of hair care, however, it is equally beneficial. It can be added to DIY masks and treatments to increase shine and reduce breakage, but it is particularly effective in relieving an itchy scalp and dandruff. To use apple cider vinegar on the hair, mix a few tablespoons of it with water and then pour it over your hair while working it deep into the scalp. Let it sit for a few minutes to take effect and then rinse it out. This works best for managing dandruff and an itchy scalp if it is performed a few times each week.
Repair Damage with a Hot Oil Coconut Treatment
Hot oil treatments are particularly effective in repairing damaged hair, but if you can’t make your way to your local Davie hair salon—you’re in luck! Hot oil treatments can be done easily at home with dry coconut oil that is sold in most grocery stores. Be sure to opt for a high-quality oil (cold-pressed virgin coconut oil is best) and start with dry hair. From there, add several teaspoons of the oil into a bowl and then place the bowl inside of a pot of bowling water. After the oil is completely melted, allow it to sit for a few minutes before proceeding and then carefully massage it into the scalp from root to tip until all your hair has been fully saturated. Keep the oil on your hair for at least 30 minutes and then rinse it off. Your hair will be smooth, shiny, and strong as if you just had a luxurious salon hot oil treatment.
