Growing your hair out for your most awaited walk down the altar may not be the answer to looking great on your wedding day. This is particularly true if you have always enjoyed and looked your best with your locks falling no longer than chin level. Remember: wedding hairstyles for short hair abound nowadays. Picking out the best one for your big day would not prove difficult with the help of your hairstylist.
However, no matter how good a style is, whether or not you have short hair, having naturally healthy hair was, is, and will always be the key. And to keep your mane at its healthiest all the time, you need not trouble yourself(and needlessly bore a hole through your pocket) by purchasing expensive hair care products. All you have to do is rummage through your kitchen and use the common foods listed below. Not only are they good for your health when included in your diet, but they also work wonders when applied to your hair.
A popular Vitamin C powerhouse, lemons do not only go well with salads, as a dressing ingredient, or as a flavor enhancer for your fave grilled or deep-fried foods. They can also work well with your hair, improving your natural hair color by providing highlights sans the damage. Before heading outside, halve a lemon. Squeeze a bit of juice onto your locks, let dry a while, comb with your fingers, and step out into the sun!
Lackluster tresses? Let the avocado help you with your woes! Vitamin-rich and packed with essential fatty acids and minerals, this delicious fruit moisturizes and restores shine to dull, dry hair. To use, just mash a ripe avocado and massage into your hair and scalp. Leave on for 20-30 minutes before rinsing out—make you sure you do this several times to ensure that none of the fruit is left in your hair. If you have damaged hair, applying avocado as a treatment should be done once a week. For healthy hair maintenance, a once a month application suffices.
Protein-rich egg should not only be a breakfast fixture. Use it to boost your hair’s natural protein by applying it raw prior to showering in the morning. Leave on for five minutes. Then rinse very well before shampooing and conditioning.
Apple Cider Vinegar
With the many health benefits of apple cider vinegar—weight loss inducer, diabetes treatment, and high cholesterol equalizer, it comes as no surprise why it is hailed as one of the healthiest foods around. But these are not all this vinegar has to offer. Applied to the scalp, it can boost its natural ph balance while bringing out the hair’s natural red highlights. So it may not be the least bit as fragrant as vanilla or lemons…But its efficacy has been proven and even vouched for by top stylists.
