Hair Beauty Tips

How to Make Hair Healthy

Natural beauty tips are essentially affordable luxuries. You deserve to reach for beauty just as much as the women who came before you and the women of future generations who will reach for their highest beauty. My beauty recipes for hair are a natural way for women to indulge in the inevitable desire to reach for beauty.

Lustrous Locks

If you’ve been spending time at the beach, you may have noticed your hair looking a bit dry. This is an easy fix and should be indulged in bimonthly during the summer months.

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon almond oil
  • 1 cup water
  • Preparation and Application

In a small bowl, mix ingredients until emulsified, and apply to your hair as a conditioning treatment in the shower. Rinse with warm water.

Try not to blow-dry your hair too often because that also dries hair out. Take advantage of the season’s sunshine and let your hair air-dry.

Apple Cider Rinse

If your hair has a buildup of product, or is just tired looking from environmental residue and oils, a quick beauty recipe for shiny hair is just what you need. It’s so simple.

  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar

Preparation and Application

Before shampooing your hair, pour the apple cider vinegar on your head in the shower, with your head tilted back. Gently work through your scalp and hair, as if you were shampooing, although the vinegar won’t produce any suds. Rinse with the warm stream of water from your showerhead and follow with a shampoo and conditioner, as usual. The shampoo will remedy the vinegar smell and will get incredibly sudsy because of the apple cider vinegar stripping the dirt and oils away for ultraclean scalp and hair.

Egg Protein Mask

Egg whites have tremendous protein benefits. We want to nourish our hair with an intensive egg-white protein mask for shiny and healthy stands of hair.

  • 3 egg whites
  • 5–7 drops lemon essential oil

Preparation and Application

Crack three eggs over a bowl, separating the whites (acne sufferers, save the yolks and for the Yolk Facial recipe on this page). Once the egg whites are isolated in a bowl, whisk together until fluffy. Add the drops of lemon essential oil for a pleasing aroma. Use your fingers to apply the mask to damp hair, focusing on the ends where the hair naturally weakens. Set hair in a clip and place a shower cap over masked hair while showering. Before exiting the shower, thoroughly rinse out the protein mask with cold water. Comb through hair gently and let air-dry.

Olive Oil Scalp Massage

This beauty recipe is all you need to improve a dry and irritated scalp.

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

Preparation and Application

Pour olive oil into a small bowl. Take the bowl into the shower with you (use a plastic bowl for safety). Wet your hair and separate your hair into parts. Pour the olive oil directly on your scalp at each part of your hair. Massage gently for a couple of minutes before shampooing and conditioning as usual.

Try not to shampoo your hair every day; that dries out your scalp and your hair. Instead, wash your hair twice weekly for optimum scalp rejuvenation.

Champagne Locks

If you covet European blonde hair, then you should mimic the French and add champagne to your hair care beauty regime. Champagne Locks is the perfect recipe for shiny, soft, champagne-highlighted hair. Chamomile teas, just as champagne and lemons do, have a blonding effect on your strands and enhance your natural highlights. Chamomile also has healing properties to condition and soften your hair. Celebrate your tresses with bubbly!

  • 1 cup (2 tea bags) chamomile tea, steeped and cooled
  • Juice of 1 lemon, squeezed
  • 1 cup champagne

Preparation and Application

Steep two bags of chamomile tea in 1 cup of boiling water, covered, in a medium-sized pot. Allow tea bags to infuse the water. Remove tea bags and allow water to return to room temperature. Squeeze in the juice of one lemon (don’t worry about the seeds or pulp getting in the pot). Add 1 cup of champagne and stir. Pour through a strainer into a bowl. Take into the shower and drench your hair with this beauty recipe after shampooing. Let the sunshine dry your hair to reinforce the highlights. Shine on!

Healthy Hair

Every woman wants healthy, beautiful hair, right? In the days of bleaching, hair spraying, and harsh styling products, healthy hair is becoming harder to achieve. This beauty recipe will support you in the fight for healthy hair, so you don’t have to give up the styling routines you use to reach for beauty.

  • 5 drops rose essential oil
  • 5 drops lavender essential oil

Preparation and Application

Mix oils together and place into the palms of your hands and rub together. Coat the ends of your damp hair. Brushing your tresses distributes the natural oils from the scalp to the ends of your strands of hair, where the moisture is needed most. Leave in to seal the ends and style as normal.

It’s always a great idea to allow your hair to dry naturally because the intense heat from a blow-dryer is damaging and splits the very ends of the hair that this beauty recipe is meant to heal.

Cucumber Conditioner

Silica is rich in potassium, which is great for strong hair and nails. Cucumber has high levels of silica; therefore, it’s beneficial for promoting hair growth. Cucumber Conditioner is an excellent natural beauty recipe that you can also concentrate on your scalp area to stimulate the hair follicles.

  • ¼ cucumber, peeled
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil

Preparation and Application

Place cucumber in the blender until puréed. In a small bowl, mix the egg, olive oil, and cucumber until smooth. Spread evenly through your hair, including the crown area and scalp. Allow to sit for 5 to 10 minutes while in the shower. Rinse well. This is a good time to shave your legs while your hair is being deeply conditioned.

Baking Soda Savior

Rid your hair of residue commonly associated with product buildup.

  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons of your favorite shampoo

Preparation and Application

Mesh the baking soda with your shampoo. Shampoo your hair as you normally do. The addition of the baking soda makes for a wonderful lather. This beauty recipe clarifies your hair.

Avocado Oil Enhanced Conditioning

The best part of this beauty recipe is that it creates shiny strands of hair because of the intensive moisture retention capabilities of the avocado oil and vitamin E oil.

  • 1 cup avocado oil
  • 3–4 drops natural liquid vitamin E oil
  • 2 tablespoons of your favorite conditioner

Preparation and Application

Add the avocado oil and vitamin E oil to your favorite conditioner for an enhanced nourishing treatment. Massage into clean, shampooed hair, focusing on the ends, which tend to be the driest.

The vitamin E protects your hair and scalp. The fatty acids in avocado oil nourish your hair for shiny locks.

KEEP STRANDS SHINY AND HEALTHY

Indulge in regular oil treatments, and apply a couple drops of oil on damp hair as a serum.

Shampoo only once a week. Other times just wet your hair and apply conditioner.

Trim or dust the end of your hair every couple of months, even if you are growing out your hair. Split ends can’t become unsplit.

Let your hair air-dry whenever possible to spare your hair the heat from your hairdryer.

Hot Oil Treatment

Ladies, what is more, important than sexy hair? Enjoy this beauty treatment to get your dry hair back on track. You will have some time while your hair is getting the shine treatment. I like to paint my nails while I wait for my hair to become bombshell locks!

  • 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3–4 drops eucalyptus essential oil

Preparation and Application

Mix oils together and place in a small microwave-safe bowl (I favor a small glass bowl). Microwave for 30 seconds. Massage hot oils into dry, damaged hair focusing on the ends, which are usually the most damaged. Cover your hair with a plastic shower cap for 20 to 25 minutes. Then rinse thoroughly. Wash with a delicate shampoo.
