After a long winter and with summer waiting just around the corner, your hair might need a little extra attention. In this blog post, I will tell you how to bring your hair back to life and make it shine before summer with simple, natural DIY hair treatment.
The winter months can be hard for you as the cold weather might dry out your hair and scalp. The windy and rainy days and the constant change between outdoor cold and indoor warmth can result in electric and frizzy hair. None of this sounds very nice, and if you don’t take good care of your hair the cold winter can be quite damaging for your locks. Therefore, I’ve decided to test and give you some inspiration for how you can make your own hair treatment.
DIY Hair Treatment for Dry and Frizzy Hair
Dry and frizzy hair is a problem for many of us all year. Besides the everyday tips for how to prevent dry hair, I recommend that you apply a hair treatment on a regular basis. Personally, I strive to use a hair treatment every second week, but you can also do it every week or every month – whichever you prefer. Last week I tested this hair treatment and thought it was really nice.
1 spoon of plain yoghurt
Mash the avocado and mix the two ingredients. Apply on clean and damp hair. Leave it on for approx. 15 minutes and wash out. Depending on how well you mash the avocado, you might need to wash it twice.
DIY Hair Treatment for Greasy Hair
There are certain everyday things you can do to avoid greasy hair. One of them is to use a hair treatment on a regular basis. I would advise, that instead of washing your hair every other day, apply the treatment once a week and then only use shampoo two or three days a week. Test if this method works for you, otherwise, consider whether your shampoo is fitting for your hair.
5 spoons of plain yoghurt
1 spoon of baking soda
1 spoon of fresh lemon juice
Mix the three ingredients. Apply on dry or damp hair and tie the hair with a plastic bag. Leave it on for approx. an hour and wash out.
DYI Hair Treatment for an Itchy Scalp
If you’re struggling with an itchy scalp, consider talking to an expert as the problem might be caused by different things. Like with the two above, there are certain things you can do on an everyday basis. Additionally, you can try out this DIY hair treatment.
2 spoons of fresh lemon juice
2 spoons of jojoba oil
2 spoons of water
Mix the three ingredients. Apply on dry or damp hair. Leave the treatment on for approx. 20 minutes and wash out.
Bonus DIY Hair Treatment
Now this last hair treatment I personally like a lot since I am a big fan of applying oils in my hair in general. If you’re not experiencing any of the above hair problems, but just feel like doing something extra for your hair, this treatment might work for you.
1 spoon of coconut oil
Mash the banana and mix with fluid coconut oil (I just heat it in the microwave for 1 minute). Apply on dry or damp hair. Leave it on for approx. 30 minutes and wash out.
No matter the type of your hair and your particular hair ‘struggle’, applying a hair treatment occasionally, is a good idea. I hope you enjoyed the post and got some inspiration for how to make your own natural and vegan hair product.
