A healthy set of hair starts with the right care treatment. And while there are many hair care treatments out there, it’s important to choose natural options that are gentle yet effective. In fact, why don’t we show you how to make your very own natural hair care treatment at home!
Here are 10 hair treatments you can easily make with simple ingredients from the kitchen:
1. Avocado and Banana Hair Mask
Avocado and banana are rich in vitamins and minerals that can strengthen and repair damaged hair. Mash one ripe avocado and one banana together, apply the mixture to your hair and leave it on for 20-30 minutes.
Rinse thoroughly for smooth and hydrated hair.
2. Olive Oil Scalp Massage
Olive oil is one the healthiest oils to cook with. It’s also excellent for scalp nourishing and hair growth. Warm up some olive oil and massage it gently into your scalp. Leave it on for at least 30 minutes before rinsing it off.
Aim to do this once or twice a week to improve blood circulation and strengthen your hair.
3. Coconut Oil Hair Mask
A coconut oil hair mask is one of the most popular hair care treatments in the world. It’s easy to make and it’s a powerhouse when it comes to hair care. It can moisturise and nourish your hair, making it softer and more manageable.
Warm a few tablespoons of coconut oil and apply it from your roots to the tips. Leave it on for about 30 minutes before washing it out with a mild shampoo.
4. Egg Protein Treatment
Here’s something you definitely have in your kitchen. Eggs are great sources of protein and they also contain hair nourishing properties. The yolk and white can naturally moisturise and remove unwanted oils respectively.
Crack an egg or two and beat it till it’s yellow. Apply the mixture to your hair and focus on your ends. Let it sit for 20 minutes before rinsing it off with cool water and shampoo.
5. Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse
Apple cider is a natural cleanser that can remove residue from hair products, balance the PH of your scalp and add shine to your hair. Mix one part cider with two parts water and use it as a final rinse after shampooing.
Do this once or twice a week and avoid doing it more than that as it can lead to dryness.
6. Mayonnaise Treatment
Mayonnaise will protect your hair from UV rays, making it excellent for conditioning dry hair. This is especially useful considering the weather here in Singapore. Massage mayonnaise into your hair before having your shower.
Cover it with a shower cap and leave it on for about 30 minutes. Rinse with warm water and shampoo or you can even combine it with a vinegar rinse to remove residual greasiness.
7. Aloe Vera Gel
Aloe vera has soothing and anti-inflammatory properties that can alleviate scalp irritation. This can help reduce dandruff or even reduce the symptoms of psoriasis. Apply fresh aloe vera gel to your scalp and leave it on for 15-20 minutes.
Wash it out with shampoo and enjoy the refreshed, moisturised feeling of your scalp.
8. Yoghourt Hair Mask
Yoghurt is not only delicious but also great for hair care treatment. It contains lactic acid which typically hydrates your hair and prevents frizz.
You can coat your yoghurt hair mask with honey or lemon for more PH balance and added shine. Add the mask to the ends of your hair and leave it on for 15-20 minutes before washing it out.
8. Rice Water Wash
Instead of wasting your rice water, why not use it for your hair care instead. The starchy water after washing your rice is actually good for your hair. It contains many vitamins and minerals that can make your hair stronger and shinier.
Strain your rice water into a clean spray bottle. Wash your hair as you normally do and spray the rice water once you’re done. Massage it into your scalp and hair before rinsing it off after 20 minutes.
9. Hibiscus Hair Rinse
Hibiscus flowers are known for their hair conditioning properties. Boil a handful of hibiscus flowers in water, let it cool, and use it as a final rinse after shampooing. This will help nourish your hair and promote growth.
Having healthy hair is a great confidence booster and a natural hair care treatment is one of the best ways to achieve it. Not only will these treatments save your hair from harsh chemicals, but they’re also much cheaper than products you’ll find in the market.
So stock up on your eggs and save your rice water because you’ll never know when they’ll come in handy. Check out our hair treatment services for personalised solutions to all your hair problems.
