I love the convenience of store bought hair products but as per my experience, homemade products are more effective than store bought.A few kitchen staples you can use on your hair & their benefits.
1.Aloe Vera Juice;
I use it as a leave-in conditioner. It has the same PH as your hair & will help close your cuticles.Promotes hair growth.Works like a natural conditioner for your dry scalps thus helping with eradication of dandruff.It has moisturizing properties & helps with hair elasticity.
2. Rosemary Infused Oil;
Rosemary herb stimulates hair growth,helps with dandruff,strengthens & restores luster to your hair.Stuff dry rosemary sprigs in your oil of choice & use that oil to moisturize/seal your hair. You can remove the sprigs when your oil changes colour. I use coconut oil for my infusions.
Flaxseed has mucilage properties so its just perfect for a holding gel. Gives your curl definition,leaving it soft & shiny. Place 1/4 cup flaxseeds in your saucepan/sufuria. Add 1 cup of water,let it boil for 10 minutes while stirring every few minutes. Let it cool & strain.Use it the same way you use store bought gels like eco styler gel.
This is my favourite Ayurveda powder.It strengthens,thickens your hair & helps with shedding.It also stimulate hair growth.I buy the seeds(trust issues lol) then grind them. If you buy the seeds,grind into a a super fine powder. I added the powder in my henna paste & it dissolved.
I have shared before how I love tea rinses & these two are my favourites. They help with shedding & also stimulate hair growth.
