Dyeing hair, using curling irons and other hair-enhancing products and methods can have unintended side effects that can damage your hair. Sometimes it takes a natural beauty regimen to undo the harmful side effects of other beauty methods. Here are some natural remedies to restore your hair back to its natural sheen, texture and bounce.
How to Repair Damaged Hair
1. Use an avocado mix
Mash a ripe avocado with one unfried egg and apply it to wet hair. Avocado’s rich vitamins, fatty acids and other minerals will restore the luster and beauty to your hair. Let the mixture soak into your hair for 20 minutes minimum, then rinse thoroughly. Repeat the process once a week for damaged hair and once a month for healthy hair.
2. Massage butter into your hair
It may sound gross but your hair will love it. This home remedy is great for dry, brittle hair. Massage it into your hair and then cover it with a shower cap for at least 30 minutes. Use shampoo when rinsing.
3. Use olive oil
A great natural moisturizer for dry hair. Lightly heat (don’t boil) a ½ cup of olive oil and rub it into your hair. Cover your hair with a plastic bag and then wrap a towel around it. Let the oil seep into your hair for a minimum of 45 minutes. Shampoo and rinse for the final step.
4. Lift your hair with an apple cider vinegar mask
Add some volume and lift to your hair by mixing one teaspoon apple cider vinegar, two tablespoons olive oil and three egg whites. Rub the mixture into your hair and cover with a plastic wrap or shower cap. Let the mixture sit in your hair for 30 minutes before rinsing with shampoo.
5. Bathe your hair in botanicals
Vitamin rich botanicals like jojoba and sweet almond oil are like the elixir of life for your hair. Use coconut oil for thick and heavy hair. Dampen your hair before applying the botanical oil of your choice in small amounts until all your hair is covered. Cover your hair in a shower cap and warm towel for 30 minutes, then rinse and shampoo.
6. Protect hair while swimming with a cider mix
This is a simple solution to protect hair both before and after a swim in salt water. Mix ¼ cup apple cider with ¾ cup of water to cleanse hair of the potential damaging effects of salt water.
7. Wrap wet hair instead of rubbing dry
Wrap your hair in a towel and let the cotton absorb the moisture instead of rubbing it dry to prevent the formation of split ends.
8. Take Omega-3 fatty acid supplements
Omega-3s keep hair vibrant and lively. Take one-to-three 250-milligram capsules of borage or evening primrose oil up to three times a day. The gamma-linolenic acid will keep both hair and your fingernails moisturized.
