Home Remedies You Can Try for Dull and Dry Hair

Summer or winter, your tresses can easily end up looking dry and lifeless. It’s a good thing that there are home remedies that are proven effective to combat your hair nightmare. It may sound somewhat weird at first, but some of the most impressive DIY hair moisturizing solutions can be found in your kitchen or medicine cabinet, such as:

Coconut Oil

Apply about a tablespoon of coconut oil on clean and dry hair. Pay special attention to the ends to keep those nasty split ends at bay. It’s a good idea to do this at night, wearing a shower cap while you sleep to let coconut oil penetrate deeply.

Olive Oil and Banana

Using a fork, mash a small piece of banana. Make sure that there are no longer chunks around for easy application. Add a tablespoon of olive oil and mix well. Massage the resulting paste into your hair and scalp, and shampoo after 30 minutes.

Avocados

Healthy fats and protein in avocados moisturize and nourish. After hitting the shower, squeeze out excess water. Massage into your scalp and hair half an avocado mashed with a fork. Allow it to do its magic for about 15 minutes, then rinse.

Honey and Pumpkin

Throw in some pumpkin slices in the blender, enough to yield about a cup of bright orange puree. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of honey into it and blend once more to end up with a thick paste. Apply it into your scalp and hair. Rinse after 15 minutes.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Create a homemade conditioner by adding a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a cup of water. Put a few drops of your favorite essential oil to give the solution a pleasant smell. Pour it on your damp hair and comb. Rinse after 5 minutes.

Sugar Water

In a small plastic container, add a cup of water and a teaspoon of sugar. Shake very well and apply some with your hands. This DIY hair spray helps you manage your tresses. Grab the bottle each time your mane gets fizzy and uncooperative.

Baking Soda

Adding a tablespoon of baking soda in your shampoo helps get rid of residue left behind by all sorts of hair styling products.

Chamomile Tea and Lemon

Make a cup of chamomile tea. Allow it to steep and cool to room temperature before squeezing half a lemon into it. Mix and pour on your mane. Allow it to stay there for about 5 minutes before rinsing to get soft hair with lovely highlights.

Yogurt and Cocoa Powder

If you have brown hair and you want to make the color chocolate-y, let cocoa powder do the trick. Add a teaspoon of it in a cup of yogurt, mix and apply. You may also throw in some honey into this nourishing hair colorant for added moisture.

Try all of them to determine which ones work best on you. Enjoy flaunting your soft and shiny hair!
