The Best Home-made Hair Packs
We all know how important hair can be in our overall appearance. While getting our hair treated at the salon every now and then is a necessity, it’s even more important to take good care of our hair on a regular basis. For that reason, let us look into some of the best homemade hair packs.
Home-made Hair Packs for Shiny Hair
Start out with ½ cup of olive oil in a bowl. Then break in 2 eggs into the bowl, mixing them well together. Make sure that the two ingredients are well blended together.
Use a flat headed brush to apply this mixture to your combed hair. The aim is to cover all sides of your hair and not to leave any area dry. Once you’ve applied it well, tie up your hair and cover with a shower cap. Let it sit for 45-60 minutes before you wash it off under a cold shower.
For best results, don’t shampoo your hair for 2 days. The smell of egg can be a little overbearing, so if you do want to use shampoo, rinse out your hair well before applying the shampoo.
‘Rize and Shine’
This is a great hair pack that not only adds shine to your hair but also moisturizes it. Use 1 cup of yogurt, 1 egg, and 1 lemon to make it. Start off by mixing the egg and yogurt together. Now add in the juice of the lemon and mix it all thoroughly. Leave your hair like that for 45 minutes before washing it off.
The added advantage of this pack is that it also helps to treat scalp irritation issues and dandruff.
Home-made Hair Packs for Dry Hair
Mash It Up
If your hair is excessively dry, this pack will help restore some life in it. To start preparing the pack, mash up a banana and add in a tablespoon of honey along with one tablespoon of lime juice. Mix it all together till you get an almost smoothie like texture.
Start applying the smooth paste to the roots of your hair and move towards the tips. Let it stay in your hair for an hour or so before rinsing and shampooing.
The Great Cocktail
Though the roots of this homemade hair pack are unknown, it definitely makes for a great tip. Start by mixing 1 tbsp of honey with 1 egg yolk, 1 tbsp of beer, and 1 tbsp of castor oil. Make sure the ingredients are well mixed together before applying the pack to your hair. Cover your hair with a shower cap or a towel and let your hair soak in all the moisture for 30-45 minutes. After initially rinsing your hair, use apple cider vinegar for the final rinse. Depending on the condition of your hair, you might have to use it a couple of times a week for long lasting results.
Home-made Hair Packs for Split Ends
Honey They’re Gone
If you want to bid adieu to your split ends, this is a great hair pack to go with. Take honey and olive oil in a 1:5 ratio (1 tsp./tbsp. to 5 tsp./tbsp.) and mix them well together. You might have to stir for a while before there isn’t any honey sticking to the bottom of the container. Immediately apply this mixture to your hair, starting from the base working all the way to the ends. Wrap your head with a warm towel and leave for 20-30 minutes before rinsing and shampooing. You can also add an egg to the mixture for a little moisturizing effect, but avoid it if you can’t take the smell.
You must be Bananas
Bananas are a rich source of potassium and help in treating split ends apart from all the other benefits. To make this pack, start with mashing 2-4 bananas (depending on your hair length). Add in 1-2 tbsp. of honey and 2-4 drops of almond oil, mixing it all together. If you have dry hair, also throw in an egg yolk in the mixture.
Apply this pack on moist hair and cover it with a towel or a shower cap. Leave the pack on for 30 minutes before washing it off with a shampoo.
Home made Hair Packs for Frizzy Hair
This simple homemade hair pack is great to tame your frizzy hair. Add a tbsp. of mayonnaise to an egg, beating them together for a smooth, creamy consistency. Apply it to your hair and let it stay for 20-30 minutes before rinsing/shampooing the hair. Apply this pack once to twice a week for better effects.
A great help with frizzy hair this pack uses the goodness of avocado, coconut, and yogurt. Start by blending in 1 ripe avocado with 2 tbsp. of yogurt. Add in 2-4 tbsp. of coconut water to the paste for the right consistency. In case you can’t get your hand on fresh coconuts or coconut water, you can even add some coconut oil and add a little extra curd for the consistency. Apply to your hair, leave on for 30 minutes and then rinse with cold water. For maximum benefits, do not use a shampoo with this pack.
While the use of these home made hair packs will definitely provide you great results, you need to treat your hair right in order to get the best looking hair.
