So often we use products on our hair in an effort to help make it healthier that actually compromise it in the long run. I’m not saying our intentions aren’t right; many of us over process our hair almost daily and providing it nourishment is essential! But, all too often, these “treatments” are only providing short term benefits and are actually causing harm in the long run with their funky chemical ingredients.
Not so with these DIY natural hair treatments though!
With these No Bull DIY Recipes, your scalp will be healthy and your hair will look and feel amazing because they’ve literally been nourished – with FOOD – No Bull!
Avocados, Bananas, Olive Oil, Lemon, Apple Cider Vinegar, and Coconut Oil are all very useful in the kitchen, and, are also ideal natural hair treatments to help keep your locks lovely, and healthy without using ANY crappy chemicals.
And for our vegan readers, these DIY recipes contain NO ANIMAL INGREDIENTS! Often DIY natural hair treatment recipes you find have eggs and/or honey included. While these are great ingredients for your hair as well, we’ve chosen to stick with organic fruits and veggies, and all natural oils only; for amazing results vegan style!
This is a wonderfully effective and (tasty smelling) natural hair mask recipe. Bananas are an excellent remedy for helping even thinning hair look full and healthy while coconut oil moisturizes and strengthens, and lemons help cleanse the scalp and aid in fighting dandruff.
1 ripe, organic banana (1.5 – 2 for longer hair)
3-6 T organic coconut oil softened
1-2 T organic lemon juice
Mash banana. Add lemon juice and coconut oil and mix again. Apply to hair and scalp by combing treatment through hair, or simply massaging mixture around scalp and down the hair shaft. Put hair under shower cap for 30 min to 1 hr – the longer the better! Rinse hair thoroughly
Avocados are full of Protein to help hair grow strong, Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs), and Vitamin E for smooth locks, plus other goodies your hair craves. Supplement that with the myriad benefits of olive oil and your hair will feel strong, healthy, and hydrated in no time with this totally natural hair treatment!
1 ripe, organic avocado
1/4 C organic olive oil
Mash avocado and add olive oil. Combine thoroughly. Apply throughout hair. When through, cover head with a shower cap and let the hair treatment sit for approximately 30 min. Rinse completely, and style as usual.
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is a super effective way of removing the chemical crap from your hair to revitalize and renew it after days (or years) of abuse. Use regularly for best results – many even use a rinse like this in place of shampoo.
1/4 – 1/2 C organic apple cider vinegar
4 T organic lemon juice
Mix apple cider vinegar and lemon juice together. Apply to scalp and hair. Allow to sit for at least 15 min then rinse.
Use these three natural hair treatments as needed and they’ll easily fix all the damage done to your hair, transforming it back into the luscious locks it should be – all withOUT any Chemical Crap!
