Five tips to care for your hair
#1: Tame unruly frizz with fresh avocado
Ask any beauty expert and they’ll swear by the hair benefits of avocado! The fruit contains essential oils that work wonders on all hair types, but are particularly beneficial for those with unruly frizz. Avocado’s moisturising power will smooth out and tame your locks for a controlled finish.
#2: Control oil levels with corn starch
Too much oil can make your hair look damp. Sprinkle a little corn starch onto your locks to absorb unwanted excess grease, bringing your hair back to a healthy hydration level. Mixed with a pinch of sea salt and brushed out after ten minutes, this home remedy will aid any oil concerns!
#3: Get rid of dull, dehydrated strands with honey
Over-exposure to the sun and constant use of our trusty hair straighteners will leave your hair dull and dehydrated. Adding a bit of nature’s sweetness AKA honey to your hair care routine will help lock in much-needed moisture, giving your strands that hydration lift that lasts! PS: Make sure you use raw honey only.
#4: Plump up tired hair with beer
Bizarre, I know. But, believe it or not, the properties found in beer can take your hair from drab to fab! Plumping up tired hair can prove difficult, but this surprising remedy creates a bull-bodied mane in seconds. Pour the beer into a spray bottle and spritz it onto your dry hair. The remaining residue will strengthen and structure your air more a more voluminous look.
#5: Treat flaky scalp with a squeeze of lemon
If you’re prone to a dry, flaky scalp, look no further than your kitchen cupboard. A mixture of lemon juice and olive oil can solve your problems in no time! The acidity in lemon juice will help your scalp shed all the loose, dry skin, while the olive oil will add the moisture back.
