Homemade Hair Care Solutions

The hair is our crowning glory. We can make it look its best even without splurging a lot of money on products and salon treatments. Here are some homemade solutions for hair and scalp care.

Wash off hairspray

To easily remove residue of hair products from hair such as hairspray, gel, wax, etc, just blend a little baking soda with your regular shampoo. You can also try mixing baking soda with water and massage it into your hair before you shampoo. Be careful not to get any baking soda in you eyes.

Beer revives

Revive limp hair without spending a fortune on expensive hair products. Use beer. The residue brought from commercial hair products can leave your hair feeling heavy and lifeless. Beer can get rid of these residues. Flat beer can strip away soapy film on your hair and brings new life and bounce to it. Just mix three tablespoons of flat beer in half a cup of warm water and pour it over your head during your shower, then rinse it off.

For blondes

You can get rid of the greenish tint you sometimes get from chlorine after swimming in pools by using aspirin. Dissolve an aspirin in a cup of water and pour it over your hair from roots to ends. Massage well into hair, then rinse.

Homemade hot oil treatment

Want hot oil treatment on a budget? Just warm up some olive oil and massage it into your hair and scalp, then wrap your head with cling wrap and a warm towel. Wait about 20 minutes, then shampoo and wash hair as usual.

Salt scrub for dandruff

Scrub away dandruff with ordinary table salt. Just shake a tablespoon or two into your hair while dry. Rub the salt through your hair, massaging your scalp, then shampoo and rinse as usual.

To make hair shine

Make your hair shine using apple cider vinegar. Mix a half cup of apple cider vinegar with two cups of warm water, and pour over hair after shampooing and conditioning.
