Home Remedies to Repair Damaged Hair

Everytime you wash your hair, does it feel dry and rough? Do you feel like your hair is not shiny anymore? Then it could be because of severe damage. Over-washing, stress, too much blow drying, improper towel drying, using too many chemicals can deteriorate your hair quickly.
Here are some quick and effective home remedies to repair damaged hair-
1. Use olive oil as a conditioner- One of the ways to repair damaged hair is to use a good conditioner.Instead of using a store bought conditioner, try using olive oil. Take ½ cup of olive oil and warm it in the microwave. Then gently apply it into your hair and massage for a few minutes. Wrap your hair with a towel for the hair to absorb the oil. Olive oil fights against bacteria and improves the blood circulation in your scalp. Strengthens the hair by penetrating into the hair shaft.

2 .Use egg yolk to make a hair mask- Egg mask is an effective way to strengthen damaged hair. When you're making an egg mask, make sure to use the yolk, as it plays a key role in restoring moisture and promotes shine. To make the mask, mix two eggs with 2 - 3 drops of lemon juice. Beat the mixture until it becomes frothy. Apply this mixture into your hair and gently massage. Cover your hair with a shower cap and leave it for about 20 minutes. Rinse off the egg mask with cold water. Use a shampoo and conditioner as it might be difficult to completely wash out the egg mask. For better results, make sure to repeat this process once or twice a month.

3. Rinse your hair with tea- Tea is another effective way to treat damaged hair. Tea contains several antioxidants, which treat rough/dry hair and remove any unwanted buildup. It helps your hair absorb all the essential minerals and vitamins. After washing your hair with a shampoo, use cold, brewed tea for a final rinse.
4. Massage with coconut oil- Coconut oil is one of the most widely used oils and it offers plenty of benefits when it comes to your hair. Research shows that it's an effective treatment for hair problems like dandruff and roughness. Take some coconut oil and warm it in the microwave for a few minutes and massage it into your hair. Leave it on for about 20 minutes and wash it off thoroughly. Repeat this process on a regular basis to notice results.
