Open your cupboards and fridges and see if you have some eggs there because the first thing that can be a helping hand for a shiny hair is exactly that!

Egg Hair Mask

Egg Hair Mask

The egg hair mask has been used for a very long time as a home remedy for hair growth. The eggs are rich in proteins and also zinc, iron, phosphor, and iodine, which helps the hair follicles regenerate and grow faster.

  • Mix them until you get a paste-like consistency.
  • Apply the mask to the hair and let it on for half an hour to an hour.
  • Rinse it with plenty of warm water.

Another home remedy for hair growth that entails the use of eggs is based on egg whites.

Secret #2: DIY Natural Shampoo

DIY Natural Shampoo

More and more people nowadays are turning to natural hair care. The shampoos that can be found in the shops contain a dangerous cocktail of chemical ingredients. These ingredients are aggressive for the scalp and damaging for the environment.

Preservatives, colorants, perfume, emulsifying agents, and foaming agents are just a few of the ingredients that can be found in regular shampoos. The main advantage of DIY natural shampoo is that you know exactly what is in your shampoo.

Also, you know what the effects of the ingredients are. More than this, you can create a shampoo with a smell that you like and which will be suitable for your hair type.

Generally speaking, the natural shampoos made at home contain essential oils that come with plenty of health and cosmetic benefits. They can also last a long time.

So, today we are sharing our best two recipes for DIY natural shampoo:

Dry Shampoo

baking soda dry shampoo

Few people are aware of the multiple benefits of dry shampoo, but it is getting more and more popular each year. The good news is that this shampoo can be prepared at home using simple ingredients.

The dry shampoo will give texture and volume to thin hair. It also will help you avoid frequent hair washing as it absorbs the excess of sebum. People with oily hair know what I am talking about and that it can be quite a struggle to have to wash it daily.

Also, frequent washing can be damaging to the structure of the hair. By using the baking soda based dry shampoo, you can enjoy shiny and beautiful hair for longer. All this without having to wash it every day.

What do we need: To make the dry shampoo all you need is equal quantities of baking soda and talc powder.

What do you do: 

  • You can mix the ingredients in a recipient with holes in the cap.
  • The talc powder will balance the absorbing action of the baking soda.
  • After the ingredients are combined, all you have to do is apply it to the hair.
  • Let it work for a few minutes then remove it by vigorously brushing the hair.

The dry shampoo can be stored for a few uses and is an excellent option for when you need great looking hair, and you don’t have time to wash it.

Bonus Tip: Most people will be able to use it at least twice before needing a proper washing.

Vinegar and Baking Soda Natural Shampoo and Conditioner

Vinegar is another ingredient that is amazing to help your hair grow faster. Most people will use vinegar after using the shampoo and before the final rinse of the hair. This gives the hair a fantastic shine.

The scalp and the hair can be gently and easily cleaned with a mixture of apple vinegar and baking soda. If you are not particularly fond of the smell of vinegar, you can use a few drops of essential oil in the mix to mask it. And you will also enjoy the benefits of the essential oils, aside from the ones of the vinegar and baking soda.

For example, lavender oil is excellent for promoting relaxation and fighting dandruff. Rosemary essential oil is fantastic to fight hair loss and stimulates your scalp to grow hair. Tea tree oil can also efficiently fight dandruff. Aloe Vera is famous for its all-powerful properties as well.

What do we need: There are two stages to use baking soda and vinegar to clean your hair and scalp.

What do you do: 

  • The first step is to mix one spoon of baking soda in a glass of warm water.
  • If your hair is oily, you can add two spoons of baking soda.
  • This is your DIY natural shampoo. Use it on wet hair, then rinse with warm water.
  • Your hair might feel a bit dry after this step; it is normal.
  • It will get better after using the vinegar as a conditioner.

Bonus Tip 1: For the natural conditioner, you need to mix similar amounts of apple vinegar with warm water. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil.

Final Thoughts

If you are preoccupied with the aspect of your hair and you want only the best and natural ingredients for hair care, an optimal solution is the DIY natural shampoo and hair masks that you can make at home in no time.
