Home Made Hair Care : Top Foods That Fix And Repair Your Hair

The road to perfect hair is not a smooth one- every hot iron is a huge bump and every dye job a pothole.  Sure, a number of products can pave the way, but why go to the store when you can start looking right at your very own home? Introducing, (drum roll please) kitchen hair care and the top foods that can actually fix and repair.  Go ahead and check out these natural hair remedies.

Home Made Hair CareBaking Soda

Whether you have spent too much time in the pool or if you are just an unfortunate victim, baking soda is great to get rid of that nasty unwanted build up.  It is basically clarifying homemade treatment that can bring the life back to limp hair.
What To Do: There are actually a number of ways to do this.
  1. Mix 2 tablespoons of baking soda and three cups of water.  Use to rinse after shampoo.  Then follow up with conditioner.
  2. Mix 2 tablespoons of baking soda (1 if you have short hair) straight to your shampoo.  Lather and let it sit for a good 5 minutes.  Rinse, repeat, and follow up with conditioner.

Home Made Hair Care

TIP:  When it comes to your hair, cold water is always better than hot.

Apple Cider Vinegar

If you want a little change, apple cider vinegar can also be used to break down build up as well.
What To Do: This is pretty much your mix- one part vinegar, four parts water.  Put in a spray bottle.  After shampoo, spray on and massage into your scalp.  Let it sit for about five minutes than rinse.

Home Made Hair CareEggs

When it comes to strong, healthy, shin, hair, nothing BEATS eggs (but you probably literally will, that is).  Eggs are packed with protein to give your hair strength, vitamins A, D, and E to keep it healthy, and the fatty acids make it shine, condition it, and even lock in some moisture.
What To Do: There are also a number of ways to add egg into your hair care routine.  Here are some of the best.
  1. The easiest would be to beat an egg, mix with your shampoo, lather, leave to sit for about 5 minutes, then rinse.
  2. As a conditioner, get an egg yolk, mix with one tablespoon of olive oil, and one cup of lukewarm water.  Use after shampoo, let it sit for five to ten minutes, comb through with fingers or a wide tooth comb, then rinse thoroughly.
  3. As a strength booster, mix 2 egg yolks with two tablespoons of castor oil.  You can use this as a mask and let it sit for about 5 minutes, rinse thoroughly.
TIP: Now this is something you definitely want to remember.  Unless you want to be left with a mess, NEVER, I repeat NEVER EVER rinse with hot water. Raw egg is great for your hair, but cooked scrambled eggs is a completely different story.

Mayo

Discover the magic of mayo as a hair mask.  Well, it is basically made from eggs to begin with- and just as you have read, you should know that that is already a good thing.
What To Do:
  1. Simply coat your hair with mayo- massage well into the scalp down to the tips, wrap up in a shower cap, leave overnight, and rinse in the morning.
  2. If you don't want to have it on all night, you can also use mayo as a conditioner.  Lather some on after you shampoo, comb through, leave to sit for about five to ten minutes, then rinse thoroughly.  At least with mayo, you wont have to worry about getting your hair into a "scramble" if you use hot water.
TIP: You can add a beaten egg yolk and a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to the mix too.
