What if you could make your hair color more vivid, your locks shinier and smoother, and your strands softer to the touch? What if you were told that you could do all of that without a trip to the hair salon? Even better, what if everything you needed to give yourself a hair makeover was already available in your kitchen and bathroom cabinets? Get ready to punch up that honey brown hair and have it looking good enough to eat. From hair masks to nourishing homemade conditioners, if you spend one day each weekend giving your hair some extra special treatment while you enjoy a bottle of wine, you’ll have longer and healthier locks by the end of the year.
Add in That Protein
Hair is made up of keratin, which is a specific type of protein that’s found in your hair and nails. When your hair naturally produces more keratin, it’s thicker, more durable, and can end up being longer, too. Multivitamins and hair supplements containing extra keratin and protein are great from growing healthier hair out of the root, but you also have to take into consideration what you do to your hair daily with different styling tools. Create a hair mask made of mayonnaise, eggs, avocados, and a bit of extra virgin olive oil so that you can build up protein on the outside of your locks as it naturally gets damaged over time.
Hair Loves Oil
So, you likely wash your hair with shampoo to get rid of excess oil, as well as to rid your locks of that ‘greasy’ look, but your hair actually does need a little oil to thrive. Actually, hair really does well when it’s nourished with healthy oils and fat. Coconut oil and milk combined make a smoothing hair mask that will have your hair feeling soft and smelling good, without adding any bulk. Give yourself a homemade hot oil treatment by saturating it in a luxurious oil blend. You can also add a few drops of essential oil to your treatment if you want your tresses to smell delectable. Wrap your hair in a warm towel and just sit back and relax with a tall glass of wine as the oil penetrates your hair strands.
A Healthy Scalp Equals Healthier Hair
Concentrating on your actual hair immediately improves the look of your current hairstyle. On the other hand, if you want your hair to look red-hot for years to come, you also have to care for your scalp. Gentle, stimulating scalp massages will have your hair growing like weeds, and it will also make your hair much shinier. If you are looking to boost your naturally blonde hair, make your auburn hair look richer, or deepen your off-black looks, scalp massage is the way to do it.
Instead of sitting under the hooded dryer or feeling the need to get your ends lopped off every couple of weeks, you can give your hair an at-home spa treatment. Pamper your scalp, slather the tips of your hair in rich oils, and give your entire head a luxurious treatment. In no time at all, your hair color will be more vibrant, naturally.
