All-Natural Remedies for Dry and Damaged Hair | FreeCoupons.comHair should always be luscious and full. However, with the sun out and chlorine overload during the summer months, your hair might not always be at its full potential. There are a number of treatments for dry and damaged hair that are highly effective. A few home remedies require the use of only natural products you can easily find lying around the house or in your refrigerator. Why not give a few of these healthy treatments a try?

Egg 

The egg treatment is one of the oldest remedies in the book. Egg is a great source of protein, which will strengthen and repair your hair by adding shine, moisture, and texture. Crack a few raw eggs (depending on how much hair you have) into a bowl, mix, and apply to clean, damp hair. Whole egg treatments should only be applied once a month; however whites-only treatment can be applied every two weeks. The result should be a more healthy and glossy head of hair.

Mayonnaise

Full-fat mayonnaise is another excellent home remedy for dry and damaged hair. Massage half a cup of mayonnaise into your hair and scalp, cover with a shower cap, and leave it on for 30 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water. This should give your hair a healthy and shiny makeover, quickly turning those dry ends to healthy and soft.

Banana and Honey 

Take an overripe banana and mash it with water until you have a thick paste. Add 2 tablespoons of honey to the mixture. Apply to hair and let it sit for 30 minutes. Wash the mixture off in the shower. These ingredients  should repair and hydrate the hair.

Avocado and Olive Oil 

Mash a ripe avocado with 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. Combine it well until you have a thick consistency, which is non-lumpy. Apply this to damp hair after shampooing and rinsing. Leave the mask on for 20 minutes, and wash it off thoroughly with lukewarm water. Avocado is rich in vitamin A, vitamin E, and saturated fats. These nutrients provide nourishment to dehydrated and damaged hair.

Beer

To add some needed body to a dry head of hair turn to beer for help.  The fermented drink is filled malt and hops, which contains proteins that are thought to repair hair damaged by chemical processing, chlorine, and sun. The yeast in the beer adds body to limp strands of hair. The sugars in the beer are believed to make hair shiny by tightening the hair cuticles. Take a beer that has been sitting out for a couple hours with depleted carbonation into the shower with you. After shampooing and rinsing your hair, pour the entire beer on your head, gently massaging the beer into your hair letting it soak for two minutes. Rinse your hair with cool water. Let your normal conditioner mask the beer scent. Treatment can be applied every other week.

Give your hair the TLC it needs during the dry season, so you can look your best all the time!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
