Then to moisturize, beat together the eggs and coconut and olive oils, and massage through dry hair. Cover with a shower cap and towels warmed from the dryer — or you can enjoy a steamy bath or shower. Let sit for ten minutes, and then shampoo out.
5. ) OILY HAIR & SCALP: Most conventional conditioners contain silicones that make your hair oiler. Try rinsing with herbal infusions as a hair treatment.
3 cups water
2 tablespoons dry chamomile flowers or 4 chamomile tea bags
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
Boil the water and pour it in a non-metal container. Place tea bags in the water and cover well. Let stand for five to six minutes. Strain the liquid and add the vinegar and sea salt. Pour in a spray bottle. Then spritz as often as necessary to saturate your hair from roots to ends. It’s ideal to air dry your hair if possible, but you’ll still see results if you blowdry too.
6. ) BRITTLE & DAMAGED HAIR: Although large doses of cholesterol aren’t good for your arteries, it’s an ideal treatment for your strands.
1 packet Knox Gelatine (unflavored), melted in 1/2 cup hot water
3 egg yolks
4 tablespoons grape seed oil or olive oil
3 capsules primrose oil
For a less oily feel, Valmy suggests opting for grape seed oil. Mix all ingredients together, puncturing the primrose capsule to use the oil only, and discard of the rest of the capsule. Saturate hair and scalp with the mixture, and cover with a shower cap or seran wrap. Leave on for 45 to 60 minutes for an indulgently deep treatment that can be further intensified by running a hair dryer over your wrapped head.
“It’s great if you can take a hot bath while this is on your hair, as the heat will open up the pores of your scalp and penetrate the mixture into the root of the hair shaft,” suggests Valmy.
7. ) DRY SCALP: To replenish your scalp, use high fat and protein ingredients to penetrate the skin.
1/3 cup sour cream
Large cube of eggplant
Blend the cucumber, avocado and sour cream together in a blender and scoop onto scalp. Massage the mask into your hair and scalp with the eggplant cube. Then cover your hair with a shower cap or seran wrap for a half an hour, finishing with a rinse that will leave your hair follicles moisturized and scalp soothed. If you can make it a cool rinse, all the better for a shiny result.
