If you can ingest it, then you can bet it’s safe and non toxic for your body and hair. Here are some homemade hair care recipes that you can try if you are interested in  “going natural” and non-toxic:

*Olive Oil hot oil treatment: Do you have dry and damaged hair? If so, this olive oil hot oil treatment is the one for you. Olive oil contains fatty acids that coat the hair and moisturize it. It also protects your hair from further damage. Here is how it works. Heat a tablespoon of Olive oil in the microwave until warm. Make sure it is not too hot. About 10 to 15 seconds should be good. Then apply the oil on dry hair and cover with a shower cap or towel. Leave the oil on for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and shampoo as usual.

*Baking soda hair exfoliater: Do you have product build up on your hair? Excessive build up feels yucky and looks kind of gross (I must say).  Get rid of that build up by using this baking soda hair exfoliater. Baking soda contains sodium bicarbonate which is a great exfoliater. It helps remove all that build up on your hair due to overuse of hair products. Here’s how you use it. Add a tablespoon of baking soda to a quarter sized squirt of shampoo. Shampoo your hair as usual, concentrating on the roots. Rinse. This recipe should remove all the residue from product build up.

*Apple cider vinegar hair rinse: Do you want shiny hair? I know I do. Apple cider vinegar helps remove product residue and excessive oil. What’s the result? Shiny hair. Mix 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with a cup of water and pour it over your hair after shampooing. Wait about 2 minutes, then rinse. Don’t worry. Your hair won’t smell like vinegar all day (but your bathtub might.)

*Tea Tree scalp massager: Do you have an itchy scalp? Don’t you hate that feeling? Tea Tree Oil is a natural antifungal and antiseptic. It helps eliminate bacteria and dandruff flakes. Add a few drops to your shampoo and massage into scalp. Leave on hair for about 5 minutes. Feel the tingle. It’s like a massage for your scalp. Rinse. Refreshed.

Try these natural remedies for your hair. You’ll be happy that you did.

Happy Day!

“May your love for me be
like
the scent of the evening sea

drifting in
through a quiet window

so i do not have to run
or chase or fall
… to feel you

all i have to do
is
breathe.”
