Tip of the Week - Natural Ways to Get Healthy, Shiny Looking Hair

If you want to have healthy, shiny looking hair, you don't need to spend big bucks to achieve your goal.   You can look in your kitchen to find everything you need for some beautiful locks!  Here are a few homemade remedies you can try that are inexpensive and easy to use.

Avocado Hair Mask

If you have short hair mash one avocado, if you have long hair mash a couple until they form a thick paste.  Spread the paste throughout your hair from root to tip and leave in for 20 minutes.  Shampoo and rinse thoroughly.  Avocados are high in nutrients and fatty acids.  They make a great conditioning treatment for your hair.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Not only is it great for your hair but it's also great for your scalp.  It has alpha hydroxy acids and helps break down built up residue in your hair.  Mix a 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar with a quart of water and use it as a rinse after your regular shampoo.  It will leave your hair feeling soft and looking shiny.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil helps repair dry, damaged hair cuticles.  Warm three tablespoons of coconut oil and comb it throughout your hair.  Cover your hair in a shower cap or wrap in a towel for 30 minutes.  Shampoo and rinse thoroughly.  It will make your hair feel soft and smooth and will help it keep a natural shine.  Plus coconut oil smells so great in your hair!

You don't need the budget of a supermodel to have great looking hair.  Give these natural ingredients a try and you too will have beautiful, healthy looking hair.  These natural, easy to make recipes will also leave you plenty of time to go out and play this summer!
