Everything Beautiful

     Many of us dye our hair, and struggle with keeping it soft and silky. As the months get colder, our hair and skin can become especially dry and it can be frustrating to manage.  Even if you are one of the lucky ladies who’s hair doesn’t change with the weather, some of the suggested masks and treatments we will suggest today can still benefit you and make you glow with confidence.

Avocado Hair Mask

Mash a ripe avocado (pit removed) with one egg, then apply this home remedy to wet hair. Avocados are rich in vitamins, essential fatty acids, and minerals that will help restore luster to your hair, says Stephen Sanna, expert colorist at the Pierre Michel Salon in New York City. Leave on for at least 20 minutes, then rinse several times. Repeat once a week for damaged hair and once a month for healthy hair.

Tea Hair Treatment

You may think of tea as a sore throat remedy, but you can also use it to give hair a natural shine. Use a quart of warm, unsweetened tea (freshly brewed or instant) as a final rinse after your regular shampoo. Tea can enhance hair color, so make sure to use a tea that works with your hair color. Blondes should use chamomile tea; black tea may darken their tresses. Brunettes should use black tea to enhance shine and enrich color.

Egg Hair Mask

Mix one egg with a small amount of shampoo, then apply to your damaged hair for five minutes and rinse well. This treatment helps to enhance the protein in your hair.

Botanical Oil Hair Treatment

Available at health food stores, olive, jojoba, and sweet almond oils are all wonderful elixirs for damaged hair. If your hair is thick and heavy, coconut oil works well. Dampen your hair and apply small amounts of the botanical oil until your hair is thoroughly covered. Top off with shower cap and warm towel for about 30 minutes, then rinse and shampoo your hair out.

     Beauty is a very personal thing, and everyone’s routine is different. We know that for the busy, on the go woman, beauty can be the last step on your mind. However, we think it is important to treat yourself well and take the time (whether that’s daily or not) to make yourself feel beautiful. Perhaps this doesn’t entail anything physical, perhaps you feel most beautiful when you take the time to read a great book, or paint a beautiful picture. Whatever it is, we encourage it. We would love to see and hear the ways you make yourself feel good! Feel free to share tips and/or photos with us!
