Hair conditioning treatments are great for dry, damaged and brittle hair. A homemade hair conditioning treatment helps to restore moisture and shine back in your hair.
A weekly massage treatment followed by hair conditioning is crucial for repairing split ends and any kind of chemical damage done to the hair by using hair colour and heat treatments. Here are some time tested and effective recipes for conditioning that will give you beautiful, shiny and lustrous hair.
Tips To Make Homemade Hair Conditioner
Take some extra virgin or normal olive oil. Combine 3 tablespoons of olive oil with honey and heat this mixture, stirring continuously. Now apply this mixture all over your hair thoroughly. The olive oil will restore shine and the honey helps to repair damage. Wear a towel over your head or a shower cap such that the heat is retained into the hair. Wash your hair with shampoo
Hot Coconut Oil Treatment
Another alternative to hair conditioning treatment is the use of coconut oil, which acts as a natural hair conditioner. Use only the purest coconut oil. Heat the coconut oil in a micro for 2-3 minutes until it is very hot. Now massage the hair liberally with this oil. Make sure you have an extra coating of coconut oil on the tips of your hair. This will help to condition and soften the hair. Wash and rinse your hair as usual.
Treatment For Oily Hair
If you are struggling with an oily mane and a greasy scalp, go in for jojoba oil with eggs. Jojoba oil is great for reducing itchiness, grease and dandruff all of which lead to excessive oiliness.
Jojoba oil is natural with just the right amount of oils as needed by the body. It helps to nourish the hair cuticle from within without weighing the hair down. Mix the white of an egg with the jojoba oil and apply this evenly over your hair. Now wash off with shampoo.
Hair conditioning treatment with castor oil is good especially if your hair is oily, brittle and prone to breakage. Those suffering from hair loss can benefit immensely from castor oil and avocadoes. Mash two avocadoes and mix it in with the castor oil. Simply massage some of this oil mixture into your tresses and watch them look soft as silk.
Although this is not oft-recommended hair oil, it is great for restoring shine, bounce and volume to the hair. Historically this oil was used to curb hair thinning and reduce baldness.
Avocado And Honey
Avocado and honey is very good for severely dry, frizzy hair. Mash the avocado and mix it with two tablespoons of honey. Gently massage this paste into your hair. Follow it up with a good massage of egg whites for deep conditioning of the hair. Avocadoes are especially useful in restoring moisture balance to your hair. Regular use will prevent your hair from drying out and becoming coarse and brittle.
Almond Hair Oil
Almond hair oil is particularly useful especially for small babies and children. It is light and deeply nourishing. Give your young baby a nice hair massage with this oil for best results. The oil is gentle and is good for overall hair growth, conditioning and maintenance.
