Organic skincare products such as lip balms, lotions, soaps and masks can be made at home for a mere fraction of what you would pay for these ingredients in the stores. When you buy these products in the stores, you are paying largely for the privilege of pretty packaging and expensive advertising campaigns featuring over-paid actresses and supermodels.
If you’d like something a little bit more refreshing, you could try mashing up the flesh of a ripe avocado and applying to the hair. You can also combine avocado with olive oil or bananas, as these products have a similar effect.
Take one ripe banana and mash creating a thick consistency, mix in one egg and blend until smooth, use a hand mixer if possible. Add one half cup of flat beer, then a tablespoon of honey, and blend for a creamy consistency. Apply the conditioning mask generously ensuring that you’ve applied to all of your hair as well as the scalp.
It contains a number of important nutrients, such as vitamins C and B6, as well as calcium, magnesium, potassium and germanium. The onion is also rich in sulphur – a “beauty” mineral found in every cell of the human body which really helps to regenerate the hair follicles and regrow new hair.
Bananas are best for dry skin, but you may find that substituting an apple may work better in certain recipes (like the citrus delight mask). Remember to always use organic ingredients so that your skin is not absorbing more chemical toxins.
Many people think it incredible that food is used on hair. It would be somewhat disgusting. But food is especially good for hair damages. For instance, people can try some avocado to protect your hair. If it is unavailable, people can use butter or other plant oil instead.
