No to Damaged Hair – Honey for Hair

There many factors that affect the appearance of our hair. The changing weather and pollution can leave the skin dirty and dry. The application of too much hair products can also damage the hair. Frequent hair salons visits for various hair treatments also weaken the hair strands and may even cause hair breakage and, eventually, hair loss. The use of heat in styling the hair also destroys the structure of the hair strand leading to damage and a straw-like, brittle appearance of hair. Weak hair strands can result to nasty split ends. These are unpleasant problems for everyone because it makes the hair really unmanageable.

There are now a variety of solutions to cure different hair problems. Hair masks of different kinds are now available in the market and can be used at home. Hair masks can greatly improve the condition of hair by giving it extra moisture and nourishment. However, these hair masks are a bit expensive and some people may not consider even buying one. But no need to worry! With simple ingredients, one can make his or her own hair mask that can be used at home.

Aside from being a sweetener for a lot of foods and beverages, honey has become a part of many beauty rituals all over the world. Nowadays, honey can be used as masks to improve the skin by moisturizing and clearing acne. For dry and damaged hair, honey for hair is a good alternative for expensive hair masks and hair treatments. Honey for hair can be really moisturizing because it contains a substance called humectants that attract moisturizer. It also helps condition the hair strands making it appear shiny and healthy. Honey can be mixed with other ingredients to produce a good hair mask and hair conditioner. This does not require a lot of money because these ingredients can be found at home.

Mix two tablespoons of honey plus three tablespoons of olive into a bowl. Apply this mixture to the hair. To lock in moisture, use a shower cap or plastic hat to cover the hair. After 30 minutes, rinse the hair well and apply shampoo to wash excess oils.

Another honey for hair solution involves milk. Using full fat milk, add about a tablespoon of honey. Apply this mixture to the hair and leave it for fifteen to thirty minutes. Once again, rinse and wash with a shampoo.

For that extra shine, make a solution of honey and warm water. Use this to rinse after applying shampoo.

A hair mask for repairing damaged, frizzy and brittle hair can be prepared by mixing a half a cup of yogurt with three tablespoons of honey, one egg yolk, one teaspoon of lemon juice and three vitamin E gels. Apply the mixture to the hair and just rinse off after thirty minutes. This honey for hair solution with yogurt is suitable for all hair types. Do this weekly to achieve a shinier and healthier hair.

These homemade hair treatments can be done before taking a bath or shower. It does not require as much time unlike when going to the salon.
