Add shine: Rub on an avocado
If you want to get rid of your dull hair and want to add shine to it, then you can use avocado to achieve it. Avocados are rich in minerals, vitamins and essential fatty acids that can restore luster to your hair, as recommended by Stephen Sanna, expert colorist at the Pierre Michel Salon in New York City. To do this, mash a ripe avocado with one egg and apply it to your wet hair. Leave it for minimum 20 minutes and then properly rinse it off. Do it once a week for damaged hair and once a month for healthy hair.
Revive limp locks: Try a vinegar treatment
If you want to revive your dull and dry hair, try a vinegar treatment. Mix 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 3 egg whites. Apply the mixture to your hair and leave it for 30 minutes. Cover it with a plastic bag or a shower cap. After 30 minutes, wash it off with shampoo.
Fight frizz: Rub in essential oils
Mixture of sandalwood and olive or jojoba oil is very effective to fight frizziness in your hair. Mix few drops of sandalwood with few drops of olive or jojoba oil and rub it in between your palms. And then apply it throughout your hair to attain glossiness in your hair and a way to control and condition brittle, flyaway hair.
Prevent dryness: Pop a hair-healthy supplement
Take 1-3 capsules of 150 mg of borage oil, primrose oil or flaxseed oil one to three times a day. All are rich in omega-3 fatty acids like gamma-linolenic acid, great for keeping hair and nails moisturized.
Avoid flatness: Use hair spray sparingly
Excessive use of hair spray can harm your hair, leaving it flat. In place of regular hair spray use styling spray that contains the B vitamin Panthenol. This spray would condition your hair and protect it from environmental and styling damage.
Pamper your hair: Coat in botanical oils
Olive, jojoba and sweet almond oils are very efficient for treating your damaged hair. Dampen your hair and apply botanical oil into your hairs in small amounts. Cover it with a shower cap and towel for 30 minutes. Then shampoo and rinse it.
Avoid split ends: Wrap wet hair gently in a towel
After taking bath, instead of rubbing your wet hair with a towel, wrap it with a cotton towel. The cotton hair will absorb the moisture in a few minutes.
Minimize styling damage: Get dressed and apply makeup first
Get dressed and apply makeup first. In this way your hair will dry up because wet hair is more at risk for getting damaged than dry hair.
Add softness and shine: Try a DIY Conditioner
Here are some simple tips to condition your hair everyday using only household ingredients:
Rub enough mayonnaise into your hair and wait for about an hour and then wash it off. You’ll be surprised how soft and shiny your hair will become after applying this great protein source.
Substitute condensed milk for your regular conditioner. The protein contained in it provides an extra-special shine.
