If you are like me, you work smart hard for your money and you feel entitled to spent every dime of it. However, you wish to and you believe that the least you can do is spend this money of yours on quality products for your hair. What if I told you that you could get the same if not more out of your bucks if you looked through your pantry and turned some of those food stuff into hair products. You don’t have to believe me, you can try them yourself as just one trial is bound to convince you. You are welcome 🙂 Let’s quickly run through these popular food items that are easy to find and most likely sitting in your pantry or refrigerator as you read this :
Avocado: Very good for adding shine. Mash up some avocado and massage into hair from the mid-shaft to the ends. Leave on for 20 -30 mins and then proceed to wash and condition as usual. You will be surprised at the super shiny result.
Coconut oil: It’s good to use fancy oils on your hair but when you need to treat those nagging split edges just rub some coconut oil to the tips of your mane and watch it do its magic.
Apple Cider Vinegar: If you can deal with the salad-ish smell then you should have an apple cider vinegar rinse at least once a month to avoid product build-up and for shinier, voluminous hair. Also having dandruff issues? ACV is your guy.
Cornstarch: I bet you didn’t see this one coming. Yes cornstarch. In addition to making those delicious sauces you can use it as a substitute to dry shampoo. Just rub some into the roots of your hair to absorb excess oil. It leaves your hair feeling clean and ready to go till the next washday
Champagne: No need to feel bad if your guests have some leftover wine in their glasses. You can use champagne to enhance your hair highlights.
Eggs: The good old egg is very rich in protein which helps in strengthening hair especially if you are struggling with breakage. The fatty egg yolk is also a great moisturizer for hair. Simply whip up some eggs and leave in hair for at least 20 mins. Your hair will not remain the same after you rinse out, I promise.
Mayonnaise: I personally swear by this. It’s a major hair softener. After shampooing, apply some mayo and leave on hair for some minutes, when you rinse out, it leaves your hair feeling silky and soft.
Tea: For that lustrous, dark, shiny hair rinse your hair with some tea after shampooing. Thank me later.
Honey: Honey is an effective moisturizer and is packed with lots of vitamins and minerals that make it good for maintaining healthy hair. Mix it with some olive oil for the perfect DC experience
Baking soda: Baking soda is great at removing excess product build-up from hair. Simply mix with water and rinse hair with the solution after shampooing. You should do this often to avoid product build up
Beer: You heard this here first. Beer does not only clean hair well. The high protein content makes it good for strengthening and repairing damaged hair. It helps to seal dead ends too. Please note that it lightens the hair too
Banana: I have to say that banana is a must in your hair care routine. It rich in silica which helps to grow thicker, healthier hair. If you are looking for softer and smooth hair, then you need to add some bananas to your hair products
Have you used any of these before? What was your experience? Have you discovered any food that will change our hair game? Pray share…
