Whatever we put on our skin or hair, will get absorbed by our whole body. A lot of shampoos and conditioners can be full of chemicals and a lot of them aren’t even necessary. There are plenty of ways that you can naturally treat your hair and still get the same glossy and conditioned results.
Avoid Hot Water
It can be hard; I love showers that are hot but it is best to use a warm temperature. Hot water can damage your hair and strip it of its natural oils. This leaves your hair feeling dry and brittle. The best temperature is one that is similar to your body temperature.
Use Honey in Your Conditioner
When you use your normal hair conditioner, a great way to give it some natural goodness is by adding honey. For every cup of honey, use three tablespoons of honey. You should leave it on your hair for at least a half hour. You might think that if you put honey on your hair, it could get super sticky. So it is so important to make sure that you wash it all out thoroughly. Afterwards, though, you will see such an amazing shine. Honey is good for a lot of things and hair is one of them. Your hair will feel like new!
Use Essential Oils
Essential oils like tea tree are great to use in your hair care routine. If your kids ever get anything like lice, this is a winning formula. It kills the lice and you have the reassurance that you haven’t been using strong chemicals on their little scalp. You could also look for brands like T444Z as their products contain carrot oil, geranium, rose, rosemary and peppermint oils. Think of all of that natural goodness!
Coconut oil is good for so many things. If you don’t have any in your home, then stock up. There are endless uses for it. You can cook with it as well as use it for taking makeup off or as a lip balm. You can, of course, use it for your hair too. Coconut oil is a solid when it is at room temperature, so it might be a good idea to melt a few tablespoons first. Then use it as a natural conditioner on your hair. Leave it for about 10 minutes and after washing it out, your hair will be so silky smooth. It is also a good idea to massage the oil into your scalp. It is a great way to help get rid of a dry scalp or dandruff.
Use Lemon Juice
If your hair is looking a little dull, use lemon juice. After the final rinse of your hair, apply a tablespoon of lemon juice. Then you should towel dry it a little and style as normal. It will leave your hair feeling and looking fresh.
