One of the most important decisions you have to make on your wedding day is: How do you go where your hair is? Ok, it's not the most important decision you'll make, but it's still a big one!
Whether you are trying to grow your hair out (like me) or are getting extensions to achieve that nice "do", you still want your hair to be as healthy as possible. Healthy hair = beautiful hair!
Fortunately, this earth has given us so many natural ingredients that can help our scalp and hair look soft, feel soft, silky, and smooth!
Most of these natural elements can be combined to make as many different hair care options as masks, scrubs, heat protection agents and more. And they're pretty cheap too (which is a big plus!)
Here's a graphic picture that lists 8 of the best natural ingredients to get beautiful hair!
Another great oil and a natural ingredient that is not on this list is coconut oil! Coconut oil is generally just a great beauty item (in fact, on nights when I feel super lazy, I skip my usual skin care routine and just rub some coconut oil on my face)! Coconut oil contains ingredients that promote the general health of your hair! It makes hair strong and shiny and at the same time stimulates hair growth!
Some of these things can be used alone or mixed together to solve a variety of your hair care problems.
Clean your hair
- Apple Cider Vinegar
There are so many reasons why ACV is good for your hair, but I'll give you the short version. The ACV's enzymes and acidity help balance your hair's pH and leave your scalp clean and healthy!
All you need is to mix 10 parts water with 1 part apple cider vinegar. Massage the conditioner into your scalp after regular shampooing and leave it on for about 2-5 minutes. After the minutes have passed, rinse it out and then condition it as usual!
Fix your hair
Honey is an amazing product that not only tastes good, but also has health benefits! When it comes to your hair, honey is a natural hair softener and binds moisture into your hair! Let it be super soft! This is a great solution for damaged or brittle hair.
It's really easy for this honey mask! All you need is honey! You want to make this mask after washing your hair normally. If the hair is still damp, massage about half a cup of honey into your hair. Leave it on for about 20 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water.
Sometimes honey can be so thick that it is difficult to work with. In this case, just mix in a little coconut oil to smooth the honey and give the mask even more benefits!
Moisten your hair
Another product that is great in itself! No need to mix this with anything. However, keep in mind that you want to use the coconut oil in liquid form. So if yours is firm, put a couple of tablespoons in a microwave-safe bowl and warm them up!
Then just cover your scalp with the mask and comb it through! You can only leave it on for 20 minutes if you are in a hurry, but I will be happy to leave it on overnight! If your mixture has been bought long enough, shampoo it out! After this mask, you no longer have to shampoo your hair!
Strengthen and grow
Both ingredients are POWERHOUSES when it comes to hair care! And when used together, they're perfect for getting strong hair that grows like Rapunzel's!
Olive oil is another emollient that makes hair strong and shiny! While egg yolk contains an element, is called lecithin, as well as protein, which are perfect for strengthening and moisturizing the hair!
You want to start with wet hair. Then combine 1 egg yolk with two tablespoons of olive oil. Apply this mixture to your hair, avoid the scalp and concentrate mainly on the ends of your hair! Let it rest for about 30 minutes, then rinse it off with warm water and shampoo to remove egg yolk and oil from your hair.
