Few people are happy with their natural hair color, and so they will use hair dyes to change it. Dying your hair is something that you can have done professionally in a salon, or, alternatively, by yourself at home.The problem with both of these methods is that they can dry your hair out and cause it to have split ends. There are a number of very helpful treatments that you can use to make your colored hair look much better.
Advantages of Homemade
There are lots of advantages of using homemade hair treatments for colored hair. The most obvious is that you can save money because you don’t need to buy very expensive hair treatment solutions from a salon. Instead, you can make one using relatively inexpensive ingredients.
Another major advantage is that you will know exactly what is going into the hair treatment mask. Everything is natural, and of the highest quality. There is no danger of them containing any unknown chemicals which could damage your hair.
Mayonnaise is more than just a delicious sauce, it’s also a great hair mask. Rub the mayonnaise through the lengths of your hair. If you suffer from greasy hair, you shouldn’t put this directly onto your scalp. Once it is rubbed into your hair, you can then put a shower cap on and leave it for around 20 minutes. After this period, the mayonnaise can be rinsed out and you can enjoy your new shinier hair.
Hot Oil Treatments
Hot Oil Treatments have a very good reputation, and you can get these from many salons. Doing them at home will be much easier and cheaper. There are quite a few different oils that you can choose to use. One of the best is coconut oil.
Coconut oil is a solid at normal room temperature, but when heated, it will become a liquid, which can be applied to your hair easily. Heat some of the oil gently, so that it isn’t too hot to put on your hair. Now section your hair and start applying the oil to each section. Massage this into your hair and scalp.
Next you just need to leave the oil to do its magic for around 15-20 minutes. After this period, you can wash your hair using a good quality shampoo.
Egg and Oil
As hair is made from proteins, eggs and oil hair masks are a great treatment. Mix two tablespoons of olive oil together with two egg yolks. You will need to whisk this up to prevent it from splitting. Wash your hair as normal and then apply this solution and leave it for about quarter of an hour. After this, the hair can be rinsed out.
It is possible to dye your hair and make it look soft and shiny. Hopefully these few simple homemade treatments will make it easier to have great looking hair.
