Hey guys, It’s a New Year (I know, my video is a little late), and I wanted to show you how I’m determined to start my year off with the right combination of products and right regimen for my hair, body, nails etc. I’m starting it off by trying a few products right out my kitchen to give the right balance to my hair. I’ve seen some shedding, so I gave myself a light trim and am now going to alternate every few weeks with some protein treatments. Check out my video and don’t forget to comment and subscribe.
HONEY: Honey is a humectant (which means that it helps to retain moisture) and an emollient (meaning that it softens and smoothes), which “naturally” makes it a great conditioner and moisturizer. It is also rich in vitamins and minerals, so using it in your hair care routine can leave your tresses looking shinier, feeling softer, and in an overall more healthy condition. Honey also softens as well as lightens your tresses, giving it a shiny appearance.
EGGS: Hair treatments that involve the usage of egg yolks have been around for decades and are designed to help in hair strengthening. Apart from increasing the strength of the hair, such treatments also help with hair silkiness and softness. Egg Yolks are also great for their conditioning and moisturizing properties.
TEA TREE: If you’re plagued by a dry, itchy scalp, tree oil may be your remedy of choice. I use it religiously. When it comes to common scalp problems like hair loss, dry skin, dandruff and head lice, tea tree oil may be an effective natural alternative to harsh chemicals. In shampoo form, it may be effective in reducing dandruff, unclogging hair follicles and clearing up bacterial and fungal infections. NOTE: It’s been known to cause allergic reactions ranging from mild irritation to severe redness, itching and blistering. Tea tree oil may also worsen skin conditions like eczema[source 1=”<a” 2=”2="2="2="2="2="2="2="href="http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-lifestyle-guide/supplement-guide-tea-tree-oil">WebMD"""""""” language=”:”][/source]
Keep in mind that you should only use tea tree oil topically — it’s not meant to be swallowed and may be toxic if ingested[source 1=”<a” 2=”2="2="2="2="2="2="2="href="http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/tea-tree-oil/NS_patient-teatreeoil">Mayo"""""""” 3=”Clinic” language=”:”][/source]
Mayonnaise: The fats and oils from the mayonnaise enter the follicles of your hair more readily if the mayonnaise is warm, do let set out for about 1/2 hour before applying to hair. When your hair is heated the follicles open, allowing the conditioner to enter the strands, so warm hair by shampooing, or sit under warm dryer before applying. For extremely dry and damaged hair, you can leave the mayonnaise on over night. A mayonnaise treatment will restore moisture and vitality to your strands, leaving your hair very moisturized and supple. This helps to avoid protein overload.
