I must say, I am a firm believer in most homemade and natural remedies. With so many cosmetic products out there, you can never be certain.
Now, an argument can be made that most of the food we find in the markets and grocery stores is not organic, but let’s say that the products we need for this mask come from a natural source.
It is a natural process that your hair is not as healthy as it was five or ten years ago. It becomes to lose some of its shine and thin after a while.
Now, the symptoms are closely linked with aging, but as with everything else, you can prevent it from happening.
Let me say from the beginning that you cannot make your hair look as shiny as it was when you were 20 years old, and you are now 40 years old.
That is simply impossible.
But you can get close, and all you need is four natural ingredients from your kitchen.
Aside from keeping your hair healthy and shiny, this natural mask will also prevent hair loss and thinning.
But let’s get to the mask.
For the homemade mask that will help you experience a beauty salon treatment, you need only:
- 1 Egg
- 1 Avocado
- 3 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of raw honey.
Once you have all the four ingredients, blend them all together until you get a smooth mixture.
Start with your tips, and begin massaging your hair with the mixture.
Work your way with gentle movements towards your scalp.
Do not worry, I know the mixture can be and will be sticky.
That is why I am suggesting you start from the ends of your hair and work your way upward.
Once you apply the mixture on your hair, let it stay there for at least 15 minutes.
After that, get under the shower and rinse the mixture out of your hair.
Now, an important factor for this mixture to work is to let your hair dry naturally.
Do not use a hair dryer, since you want your hair to be soft, smooth and silky shine.
I must mention, do not expect magic after just one treatment.
However, in time, you will get there.
If you are pessimistic about the ingredients used for the mask, let me tell you just some of their benefits.
Avocado, for starters, adds tons of healthy nutrients to your hair and also helps with moisture and smoothing of your ends.
Honey and olive oil add shine and strength to your hair, making it look healthy.
And eggs are rich with protein, one of the building blocks for muscles and hair follicles.
I must also mention that you cannot use the mixture on a daily basis.
Two times per week is recommended, but you can also apply it three times per week.
Try not to wash your hair as often, as it needs to remain moisturized.
One problem that occurs when people wash their hair often is that you dry out the scalp, and you eliminate the oils your hair needs to retain moisture.
