I’m pretty sure that every woman loves her hair. Moreover, I’m sure that most men love their hair as well. We spend a lot of money on hair growth treatments that don’t actually work, because we think that beautiful hair is worth it. I’m here to persuade you to stop buying all those expensive products and start using homemade hair growth treatments, which are one of the great ways to prevent breakage and thinning, prevent potential hair loss as well as ensure optimal hair growth. So, take a look at the list of 5 powerful DIY hair growth treatments.
1. Vinegar rinse
Most women avoid using such an acidic product to their hair, but the thing is that the pH level of hair is between 3.5 and 5.5. That means that most alkaline hair care products tend to throw it off balance. Vinegar rinse helps to restore that pH balance and makes you hair stronger and healthier. Just mix 1 part vinegar with 2 parts water and use it as a final rinse for beautiful hair.
2. Castor oil
Castor oil is very popular for promoting quick hair growth. Since it’s very thick and a bit greasy, I recommend you to mix the castor oil with your conditioner or with almond oil to avoid too much hassle. Sure, you may apply it directly, but make sure you have enough time for the oil to settle down and wash it off.
3. Banana mask
Banana is packed with vitamin A, C and E, which are all needed for healthy growth and strong hair. While it seems impossible to eat bananas all the time, because of its high calorie content, you can always make a mask. Take a ripe banana, mash it into paste and then apply it to your hair. Wrap your head up with a warm towel so that your hair can absorb all of the essential nutrients.
4. Egg mask
Eggs are an important ingredient in many hair growth treatments. For your own homemade treatment, take an egg, beat it well, add a quarter cup of mayonnaise and a quarter cup of yogurt and mix it all well. It must look like a smooth foamy paste. Now, apply the mixture to your hair and cover it with a shower cap. Leave on for an hour and then rinse with cool water and mild shampoo.
5. Almond oil
Perhaps, this is the simplest hair growth treatment. All you need to do is to take a tablespoon of almond oil and massage it thoroughly into your scalp and hair. For a better result, do it at night before going to sleep, and the next morning shampoo your hair as usual and wash it off. Almond oil will make your hair softer, healthier and stronger.
