DESCRIPTIONA collection of articles and tested research on using fresh and organic products for everyday home hair care.
Homemade Hair Conditioner There are various ways in which a homemade hair conditioner can be made. Usually most people use everyday ingredients which can be found in your cupboards at home. Some may need extra ingredients which are not expensive but can be purchased at health food shops or centres. There are a lot of people using these homemade methods for a variety of reasons 1. The costs of purchasing the correct conditioner for your hair as leading brands do seem to increase the price of these products where homemade products can be a third of the price.2. The products you make at home can have a very long lasting effect on the finish of your hair from its shine, body and simply the way it looks, the liveliness and not the dull and dry look. Created and designed specifically just for you. This is important to help you feel better about yourself. Fantastic hair = Fantastic you There are many products which people have been using for a number of years such as mayonnaise, olive oil, rosemary and even avocado with a touch of honey. This avocado method was used by a Mayan queen who also used the avocado as a face mask. The use of these natural ingredients ensures that you know what is in the products, all fresh ingredients with no added chemicals. The type of food we eat is also important to our hair and your daily diet makes you the person you are today. As they say you are what you eat! and this is shown in your face, body and hair. Eat plenty of fruit, protein products and drink plenty of water to add moisture to your skin and hair follicles. A maintenance plan or an idea is advised to properly maintain your hair for any conditions that you may be faced with on a daily basis. Wind, rain and shine all have an effect on your hair and maintaining the look, cut and covering your hair is vitally important to lock in moisture, colour and freshness. These are all just a few ideas to bear in mind when looking after your hair and there are many books available which can help you with this and also specialists which can give you some helpful guidelines. Why are people using mayonnaise in their homemade hair conditioners? Well, where do we start, I personally did not realise that people were using mayonnaise and smearing avocado on their hair until just recently. The homemade hair conditioner fad is definitely a hit for a lot of people in the hair business but also for people who want to look after their hair at home. From the research which has been carried out and from watching all these people mixing up honey with rosemary and mayonnaise and padding their heads with warm towels or placing on shower caps to hold the gunk of a mess on, only to find that once it has been rinsed off and shampooed your hair is actually really well moisturised and conditioned, surprising! Well, it was also found out that the main ingredient in these products is exactly what your hair needs and that main ingredient is protein. This builds it strength, gives it more body and shine (with a few secret ingredients, all from your cupboard, such as honey and olive oil). Another important factor is the type of food that we eat as this ensures that our hair is at its peak condition. 1. Plenty of protein in the diet2. Plenty of water3. Some say that coconut milk is also very good for maintaining the shine, drinking and also using it within a mixture of conditioner recipes. All of these items can be found in our cupboards at home, so girls, on a Friday evening, nothing to do, check about a few of the recipes online and start making your own beauty products which are definitely cheaper and its a fact that all the ingredients are going to be natural where some of the products on the shelf may slightly differ in their chemical complexities and people do not really want to put this on their hair. Its the all organic girl in this day in age and the freshest products only to ensure the overall natural look and feel. The time is the factor in these homemade productions, and for the fashion conscious it would probably be best to stay in due to the head gear or shower caps which will need to be worn. IMPORTANT: Let people know that you will need the shower room and make the evening yours, watch a film! But its the end result which is unbelievable. Through the absorption and moisturising the hair follicles from the splendid recipes it is definitely noticeable, and how fantastic does anyone feel once they have been pampered for the evening? NOTE: Do not be put off by the mayonnaise and how to apply it or what it looks like just think of the end result.

The food products can be mashed together such as the the avocado and banana mask with an added touch of olive oil or even the avocado on its own for the ultimate in face masks. The only concern when using these proucts is that they are used in their fresh state, where these can be kept for a couple of days in the fridge but not really recommended after the second day. Olive oil and eggs add a nice sheen to your hair whilst the protein from some of the products add strength to your hair and help to boost its overall look and liveliness.
