Pumpkin everything season is here!! The holidays are an exciting time but don’t forget your self-care, including your hair!
How did you make the most out of the sunny summer days? Did you spend your summer weekends lounging around at beach or the pool, or hiking, biking, or simply walking around outside in the warm weather? No matter what you chose to do on your summer days, it is likely that your hair took quite the beating. Salt water, pool water and sun all feel great, but it can really dry out your hair.
And now, as we shift into the cool months of the end of the year, your hair won’t get a break. Now it will have to deal with either the dry, cool weather that characterizes the fall in most places.
There is no need for you to buy expensive, chemical-filled treatments. You can make your own hair mask at home that will keep your hair feeling moisturized, tamed, and smelling wonderful.
Green Goddess Hair Mask
2 Tablespoon of Honey
1 Tablespoon of Coconut Oil
Carefully cut the avocado in half and smash in a bowl. Crack the egg into the bowl and mix together. Add the honey. If the coconut oil is solid or semi solid, put it into the microwave for ten seconds and it should be liquid enough to mix into the mixture.
Put on an old t-shirt and place your hair over a sink or tub. Take the mixture in your hands and place it where your hair starts to appear dry. Massage it through your hair downwards until it reaches the tips. Keep on putting it in your hair until it is all done (it won’t keep). Place your hair in a shower cap and leave it in for 20 minutes. Rinse it out with warm water, but don’t wash with shampoo. This will remove all of the healthy oils that will keep your hair moisturized.
More Tips for Dry Hair
If you usually deal with dry hair, here are three tips you can follow that will make your love your mane.
First, don’t wash your hair every day. Washing your hair removes dirt, but it also removes the natural oil your scalp produces that keeps your hair moisturized. Try washing your hair every other day to every three days. Not only will you notice your hair stays moisturized for longer, it also helps to reduce frizz
Second, use sulfate-free shampoo. Most commercial shampoos contain sulfate (a type of salt) that can dry out your hair.
Third, use a few drops of natural hair oil like macadamia oil midway down your hair to the tips. It will keep your hair silky and shiny.
