Though all of us would like to have healthy hair, to maintain it could be a Herculean task. There are a lot of home remedies that could help you overcome some problems of the hair. Some would be only temporary though.
For instant shine
Beat two eggs lightly, mix in some milk and apply throughout the hair. Leave for five minutes. Rinse well and voila! You would have got instant shine. Eggs can be good for your dog’s hair too. Fortunately for them though, you don’t have to take the trouble of applying it all over them. Just mix egg in their food.
Aspirins could be a great solution to treat dandruff. Dissolve two tablets of aspirin in dandruff shampoo while washing your hair. The dandruff will clear off. Condition your hair with a good moisturizer after washing.
To remove build up on hair
Mix a little vodka in the shampoo while washing to remove product build up on your hair or to soften extremely thick hair. This is for occasional use only. Regular use could do more harm.
Use static guard lightly about seven inches from the hair. This method is to be used occasionally.
Use a good brand of powder to work on the grease. There are lots of fragrances and unscented powders available in the market. Puff a little at the root follicles before spraying. If the problem is of a serious nature, powder heavily and leave for 15 minutes before washing off. Use a good but light conditioner.
Lemon can leave your hair feeling fresh and lighten its color. Rub lemon juice onto your hair (not the scalp) while you are going out. The citric acid in lemon juice when exposed to sunlight lightens the color of hair and leaves a golden tinge. A word of warning though, doing this often can leave you looking like a red head.
Include honey in your diet by way of snacks or in tea. Applying small quantities on the hair can also impart a sweet shine to your hair.
