Hair treatments such as bleach, perms and rebonding can make your hair look like a million bucks, no doubt. However, the after-effect of some of these treatments can prove to be disastrous for the health of your locks, thanks to the chemical-infused products used during these treatments.
In worse cases, your hair can get burnt and damaged when it comes in contact with all the heat used during the process. Burnt hair can make your tresses look limp and lifeless. If you’re dealing with a bad hair situation right now, then here are 3 fixes that might be of great help in bringing your locks back to life.
#01: Moisturising oil mask
Things you need:
- Protein-enriching shampoo such as the TRESemmé Hair Fall Defense Shampoo With Keratin Protein
- Olive oil
- Moisturising conditioner such as the Dove Damage Solutions Intense Repair Conditioner
All you need to do is mix together one tablespoon shampoo, conditioner and olive oil each. Then, massage the mixture into your scalp and let it sit for about 20 to 25 minutes. Pull all your hair together in a loose bun and cover it with a shower cap or a plastic bag. Wrap a clean towel over it and let the mask work its wonders on your hair and scalp. Lastly, rinse your hair with lukewarm water.
#02: Mayonnaise + egg yolk
Mix together two egg yolks and half cup mayonnaise. Apply the mixture all over your hair evenly, from roots to tips. Make sure you cover each and every strand, especially areas that are burnt and damaged. Cover your hair with a shower cap or a plastic bag and leave it on for at least an hour. Rinse off with lukewarm water and end your wash with a cold water rinse to lock in moisture. Pamper your tresses with the goodness of this natural home remedy once a week for effective results.
#03: Aloe gel
You will need aloe gel and cotton swabs for this DIY hair treatment. All you need to do is take a cotton swab to apply aloe gel on areas and spots that are burnt and damaged. If you don’t want to indulge in a messy DIY hair mask treatment, then this can be your best bet. Thanks to its soothing and cooling properties, aloe gel can help strengthen your hair and make your scalp healthier. Alternatively, you can use vitamin E oil and dab it on the affected strands and spots.
