Nourishing your hair

Hair that lacks nourishment can be dry, brittle and full of split ends.  If you often suffer from this problem then you should do something to help your hair.  To give strength back to your locks you need to give them some oil to gobble up.  Your hair will then feast itself on essential nutrients.

  • 1 egg yolk;
  • 2 tablespoon of honey ;
  • 3 tablespoons of almond oil.

Mix these three ingredients together.  Once you have a good mixture apply onto moist hair. After leaving the mixture in your hair for thirty minutes, rinse and then use a soft shampoo to wash your hair.  After this nourishing mask your hair will have had it’s dose of nutrients and everything it needs to get it’s shine and strength back!

Final words

Your hair can attract all the bad particles of the environment and we don’t do our hair any favours with the chemical products that we use like the hairspray, hair gel, industrial products, mask and shampoos.  What’s more the weather and seasons can leave our hair dry and damaged.  Use natural hair masks to give life back to your hair and repair any damaged strands.
