Leave it for 20 minutes and rinse with cool water. This is one of the most effective beauty tips for hair. You’ll notice the change immediately!hair-recipe-02

2. For that shiny soft hair:

Apply this mixture evenly on your wet hair. Leave it for 30 minutes and wash it off thoroughly. This mixture will close down your hair’s cuticle and give your hair that amazing shine all day long!hair-recipe-03

3. Rinse with tea:

You may think of tea as a sore throat remedy, but you can also use it to give hair a natural shine. Use a quart of warm, unsweetened tea (freshly brewed or instant) as a final rinse after your regular shampoo. Tea can enhance hair color, so make sure to use a tea that works with your hair color. If you have blonde shades use chamomile tea. For non-colored hair – black tea will work best.hair-recipe-04

5. Eating and drinking habits:

Usually the most important aspect of hair care that is oft ignored! Despite how often you wash, cut or style your hair, if you’re not looking after yourself with a healthy diet, you can’t expect your hair to be healthy.

Eating and drinking habits  greatly benefit or hinder your hair. The main support for luscious long hair is drinking lots of water. Not only does it benefit your body, but it also helps strengthen and increase the growth of your hair. Protein is also seen as a building block to healthy hair; without a sufficient amount of protein in your diet, hair can dry up to become dead and lifeless.

Hopefully, all or at least some of these remedies will help you return your hair back to the land of the living this winter!
