Tips For A Beautiful Hair

In addition to my previous post beauty tips for a natural shiny hair, here are simple tips to beautify your hair from roots to tips. The recipe below are all natural and you can do these in your own kitchen.

Wash and dry your hair carefully to prevent tangles and damage. If you wash and towel dry your hair too vigorously you'll damage your hair before you even begin to style! When washing your hair, use your finger tips to gently rub your scalp. Don't scrub. To dry your hair pat and squeeze dry with a towel.


Make sure you are using brushes which are appropriate for your hair type and your hair length. Use brushes with rounded ends to prevent damage. Brush your hair gently and only when necessary. Maintain your hair with pride and consistency. Depending on the length and style, have it trimmed appropriately. If you wear your hair short, have the style refreshed every 3-4 weeks. If you are growing your hair longer, have it trimmed every 6-8 weeks to remove split ends.

Make sure to eat enough protein. Since the hair shaft is composed of a protein called keratin, a diet low in protein is a triggering factor for brittle hair. You need at least two to three daily servings of protein (tofu, soy milk, beans and peas, nuts and nut butters) for hair that's manageable and healthy.

Egg Shampoo
• 1 egg
• 1 tsp olive oil
• 1 tsp lemon juice
• 1 Tbsp castile soap
• 1/2 cup water or herbal tea
• 5 Drops of essential oil of your choice (optional)

Combine all in blender and whip until smooth. Shampoo with mixture using warm,not hot water for the shampoo and rinse. Store any remaining shampoo in the refrigerator for use the next day.

Each time you shampoo your hair gently massage your scalp with the pads of your fingers in a circular motion, this will encourage a healthy scalp so increase shine and condition as well as encouraging growth.

Use a hot oil treatment once or twice a week. Deep conditioning can help keep hair manageable. Warm one tablespoon of jojoba, avocado or olive oil in the palm of your hand; massage into hair; place a plastic shower cap over your head for 30 to 60 minutes; rinse out with a gentle shampoo.

Once layers get quite long, comb in a zigzag parting. This will create body and make growing out layers work for you rather than against you.

Many fruits and vegetables can be used as natural hair products. Mashed avocado and mayonnaise are great moisturizers for dry hair, and whipped eggs and yogurt (one egg to three teaspoons of yogurt) give hair great luster. Just massage them into the hair, place a shower cap over your hair for 20 to 30 minutes and rinse off with a gentle shampoo.

Herbal Shampoo
• 1/4 cup of your favorite herbal tea
• 8 oz liquid castile soap

Add soap to tea. Stir over low heat until well blended. Store in a capped bottle.

Protein Shampoo
• 1 bar baby soap, shaved
• 4 quarts bottled water
• 2 slightly beaten eggs
• 1 tsp. of your favorite cologne
• 1 tsp. powdered borax

Dissolve soap in boiling water. Let cool. Add eggs and borax. Stir to mix thoroughly. Save in a tightly sealed bottle.

Frizzy Hair Treatment
• 1 cup water
• 1/2 cup vinegar
• 1/2 cup oatmeal water

To make oatmeal water, soak the oatmeal in hot water and leaving it for two to three days at room temperature and then remove the oatmeal flakes with the use of cheesecloth. Rinse your hair with this mixture to help keep frizzy hair away.

I think I need a hot oil treatment. I had my hair cut short in layers just recently. I'm having a hard time managing it compared to when it was longer. Nice post! Very informative.^^

My hair is long and thick, oftentimes I have a hard time managing it. I often go to the salons to have hair treatments and it cost so much. I even buy very expensive hair conditioners and hair treatment creams. I love your article for it offers me new, healthy, affordable alternative for taking care of my hair. Thank you very much!
