While you transition over parts of your life to a more holistic or natural way, we often forget about how much we put ON to our bodies, including our hair products. I am hesitant in putting aside the rituals involving my hair. I enjoy going to the salon and I love the expensive potions I lather onto my locks. However, after this week of intensely researching beauty and health products I feel like I am ready to commit to changing my mentality and the process in which I care for my hair. Washing my hair with apple cider vinegar and baking soda is in the foreseeable future, but first I will begin with this.
Great for all types of hair, but works best for damaged or dry hair. The natural oils present in the avocado and olive oil will take hold for the following few days even once rinsing out. The protein in the egg helps to defend against breakage and its vitamins A and E work to moisturize and give your hair a natural shine. The banana is full of vitamins and acts as an intensive moisturizer. The honey is amazing - it's benefits include hair growth, conditioning and has antibacterial properties (which means it's a shampoo as well). Oatmeal, full of lovely B-Vitamins, means deep conditioning and adds thickness and strength to your mane. Lavender and Rosemary essential oils are great for hair growth and conditioning.
Make this and your locks will thank you!
Mix all ingredients into a bowl.
Scoop mixture out with your hands and massage onto your hair starting from the ends (which are drier) working up towards your roots.
Wrap your hair with a shower cap or plastic wrap, for at least an hour or overnight is best (cover your pillow with a towel).
Rinse and towel dry.
Repeat weekly for the best results!
