Recipes for Hair Care that You can do at Home

Beautiful hair is a desire of most women, and some will spend a small fortune on the latest and greatest shampoos and styling products to get the best tresses possible. However, you don't have to go with fancy packaging and designer brands to get the hair of your dreams. In fact, you don't even have to go to the drugstore. Many of the best hair care products can be found right in your own kitchen with all natural recipes for hair care.

The Woman Behind the Mask Most of us know that using a facial mask on a regular basis will keep our skin clean, smooth and blemish free. But did you know that you can use a mask on your hair as well? These treatments are used to moisturize dry tresses with a deep conditioning process that is sure to leave your hair smooth and shiny. And everything you need for these recipes for hair care can be found in your refrigerator or pantry! Olive oil is one of the best ingredients in recipes for hair care, because it effectively moisturizes the strands much like a hot oil treatment will. Combine the oil with eggs or honey, put a shower cap over the hair and leave for about fifteen minutes before rinsing.

Clean and Clear The most common culprit in hair that looks dull and lifeless is a residue of shampoo and styling products that never get rinsed out of the hair completely. Before you shampoo, try this recipe for hair care; combine a cup of lemon juice or vinegar through your hair and leaving for a few minutes. This will help to strip the hair of residual oils and products so that you shampoo can do its work properly. You can also use one of these rinses after shampooing for some extra shine to your tresses. Add some herbs to the rinse like rosemary or nettle and your hair will smell yummy too!

Go Fruity Fruits and vegetables are great ingredients to use in recipes for hair care, from cucumber for oily hair, to avocado that will moisturize dry strands. Peaches make a great natural treatment for normal hair, and you can use the rest for a cleansing facial mask. Try mashing or blending these fruits and vegetable to a smooth texture and then applying to freshly washed hair. Leave in for a few minutes and then rinse thoroughly. Your hair is guaranteed to shine!

Natural recipes for hair care are a great way to get your tresses in shape without spending a lot of time or money on commercial products. Next time you head to the grocery store, pick up a few extra ingredients for your hair and treat those tresses right at home!
