Here are some simple, At-Home Treatments that can give your hair a pick-me-up. These 5 little tricks can be done with house-hold items you have sitting right inside your home, right now!
1. Coconut Oil for Damage.
In a previous post, we wrote about a great treatment for your hair using coconut oil. This incredible cooking paste can do wonders for your hair, and can repair any damage to your locks. Heat the coconut oil in the microwave, and add to the ends of your hair. Leave in for at least 30 minutes, or overnight with a shower cap on for an even deeper conditioning treatment. Rinse well.
2. Baking Soda to Strip Color:
If you’ve recently added too much color to your hair, you can use baking soda to remove some of the excess color from your locks. Just add a little baking soda to your shampoo bottle, we suggest ½ cup to your bottle, and shampoo your hair. The baking soda can remove the excess and unwanted extra color. This is suggested to use only within a few days after coloring, and only if your color is more than you wanted and you wish to strip some of the unwanted color.
3. Egg Yolks for Shine
Adding Egg yolks to any home remedy can add shine back into your hair, and keep your hair healthy. Eggs can be added to your shampoo to be used weekly, or as a hair mask.
4. Aspirin for Build-up
To remove build-up on your hair, aspirin has been proven to have great results when crushed and added to your favorite shampoo! As crazy as it sounds, the active ingredient “salicylic acid” found in aspirin can aid in stripping build-up on your locks, therefore restoring your hair’s natural shine. Be careful when using aspirin on newly color-treated hair, as the aspirin may strip any new color. For color treated hair, use only after a few months of coloring, or consult with your stylist.
5. Avocado for Strength
Avocados are known for their natural oils they carry, and what better way to put them to use than in your hair! Peel an avocado, scoop the inside remains, mash your avocado, and place the mixture onto your hair ends. This mixture can also be combined with egg yolks to thin the mask, and for shine. Leave on your hair for at least 30 minutes to an hour. Rinse well.
6. Purple Kool-Aid for Brass
Does your blonde color look a little brassy? Don’t have time for a toner? Try using a little purple Kool-Aid. Sounds crazy! But it may just help get rid of any orange tint to your blonde shade. First, mix a jug of purple Kool-Aid as instructed on the packet. Then add shampoo to your hair as normal. Rinse your hair using the Kool-Aid mixture. If you still see some brassy areas in your hair, try repeating the rinse until the brass is gone.
