Many people deal with damaged, dry hair. They often think they have to spend hundreds of dollars at the salon or on special shampoos and conditioners to get their hair back to normal or somewhat back to normal. You don’t have to live that way though or spend hundreds of dollars to get your natural hair back. There are many home remedies you could do from the comfort of your home. Some with everyday items you most likely already have at home.
Hair damage is more than just split ends. For the most part, hair damage is permanent because hair is actually a collection of dead cells, making them beyond repair. The only real cure is time, a pair of shears, and taking steps to prevent new damage. But does damaged hair grow back healthy? The only way to get really healthy hair is to allow your hair to grow without further damage. If you damage your hair by over-styling, too much heat or over coloring with harsh chemicals the good news is your hair will grow back healthy.
So how do you keep your hair from getting even more damaged and have it grow back healthy? Well there are many at home remedies you can get started on for very cheap.
Here are some of the most highly recommended:
Repair damage with an avocado
Massage in butter
Condition with olive oil
Rinse with tea
Rinse with apple cider vinegar
Make a “shampoo omelette”
Treat with botanical oils
Wrap wet hair dry
- Let your hair down
- Eat your omega 3’s
Have you ever heard of treatment with avocado? Well many people say it really works. So how does this work? You mash a ripe avocado (pit removed) with one egg, then apply this to your wet hair. Avocados are rich in vitamins, essential fatty acids, and minerals that will help restore lustre to your hair. Leave it on for at least 20 minutes, then rinse several times. Repeat once a week for damaged hair and once a month for healthy hair. This will help your damaged hair and keep healthy hair shiny and soft.
You can also try using butter to treat dry, brittle hair with a small amount of butter for a glossy shine. Massage it into your dry hair, then cover your hair with a shower cap for about a half hour. Shampoo as usual, and rinse all the butter out. Whatever works right?
You can also try conditioning with olive oil. This will put moisture back into your dry hair. You do this by warming up 1/2 cup olive oil (do not boil it), and then rubbing it into your hair. Cover tresses with a plastic bag, then wrap everything in a towel. Let this home remedy do its thing for 45 minutes, then shampoo and completely rinse.
You may think of tea as a sore throat remedy, but you can also use it to give your hair a natural shine. Use a quart of warm, unsweetened tea (freshly brewed or instant) as a final rinse after your regular shampoo. Tea enhances hair color, so make sure to use a tea that works with your hair color. Blondes should use chamomile tea; black tea may darken their tresses. Brunettes should use black tea to enhance shine and enrich colour.
You can also use apple cider vinegar to help damaged hair from getting even more damaged. For this remedy, you combine 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar with 2 tablespoons olive oil and 3 egg whites, then rub the mix into your hair. Keep your hair covered for about a half hour using plastic wrap or a shower cap, then shampoo and rinse. You might smell like apple cider vinegar for a while but I’m sure you’re willing to deal with the smell if it helps your hair.
Another great remedy is an egg omelette. What? You’re probably asking yourself. Do this by mixing one egg with a small amount of shampoo, then apply to your dry hair for five minutes and rinse well. This treatment helps to enhance the protein in your hair. Then you should treat your hair with botanical oils. These are available at health food stores, olive, jojoba, and sweet almond oils are all wonderful elixirs for damaged hair. If your hair is thick and heavy, coconut oil works well. Dampen your hair and apply small amounts of the botanical oil until your hair is thoroughly covered. Top off with shower cap and warm towel for about 30 minutes, then rinse and shampoo your hair out. This will work for you.
Another thing that works is wrapping up your damaged hair in a cotton towel, and let the cotton absorb the moisture for a few minutes. This helps protect against further split ends. Do this instead of rubbing your hair dry after you get it wet. Then just let your hair down, let it breath for a few hours, especially if you normally have your hair up. Finally, don’t forget to take your omega 3’s.Take one to three 250-milligram capsules of borage oil, evening 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.
There you go. If you are suffering from damaged hair, try some of these remedies. I’m sure one of them will work for you. Then stop damaging your hair and let a full set of new hair grow out.
