Dry hair is very common in winter, when people spend time in heated buildings or are exposed to colder weather. Quarantine because of COVID-19 is another problem in that you may not get to a hair salon to get it conditioned and treated. Here’s how to give your dry hair a makeover at home using remedies you have around the house or can get from a grocery store.
Wash Less Often
One of the easiest ways to tame dry hair is to wash it less frequently. This easy hair remedy reduces the number of chemicals being used on your hair and give the follicles an opportunity to recover. Try skipping a day of washing to see how it helps your hair.
Strange though it seems, beer has properties that reduces dryness in hair. It acts as a conditioner by improving the cuticles in hair. Shampoo your hair as usual and sprinkle some drops of whatever beer you have at home on it. Allow your hair to dry naturally.
Hot oils are another way of treating dry hair at home. Olive oil, castor oil and almond oil can seal the hair cuticle, preventing further damage. They also contain antioxidants and vitamin E, which add shine and strengthen the hair.
Avocado and Other Foods
Avocado is rich in vitamins A and E, which nourish your hair. The vitamins help moisturize damaged hair and add shine. Applying an avocado mask is easy and can help repair hair cuticles. You can also use bananas to make a simple hair mask. Yogurt mixed with olive oil works well in a hair mask to repair damaged cuticles. Other everyday food items that are effective in repairing damaged hair are eggs and mayonnaise. Both contain a lot of protein, which helps replenish moisture in damaged hair and strengthen it.
