There’s no question about it. Healthy hair is beautiful hair. It really doesn’t matter if you have long hair if you have dead ends. Many women make the mistake of holding on to dead ends because they want to achieve long hair. It doesn’t matter if your hair is dry and brittle or thin and prone to breakage. Whatever your issue is, it’s important to stay on top of it so that you can achieve healthy hair. Consider these two treatments as you work toward developing the most beautiful head of hair.
1. Hot Oil Treatments
Gather a few carrier oils in a container with a lid and mix them together for a hot oil treatment. Typically, many women like to use oils like extra virgin olive oil, almond oil and castor oil. As you mix these oils together, it’s okay to add in a few drops of an essential oil. Great essential oils to consider include rosemary oil, peppermint oil and bergamot oil. In order to heat the oils up, boil 2 cups of water in a pan. Pour the hot water into a glass bowl. With the lid on, submerge the container with the oil mixture into the glass bowl with the hot water. Allow the hot water to heat up the oil. Once the oil is hot, pour it all over the strands. Put the hair in a plastic cap. Sit under a heated dryer for 30 minutes. Once the treatment is finished, rinse the oil away with cold water. If you have oily residue, it’s okay to use a sulfate-free shampoo afterward. Do this on a regular basis to help add extra moisture to dry hair.
2. Deep Conditioning Treatments
Deep conditioning treatments are also great for the upkeep of hair. Use botanical hair care products because they tend to have the most natural ingredients. In order to put the moisture back into your hair, it’s always wise to use heat. Use a heated bonnet or a hooded dryer. Once you add the deep conditioning treatment to squeaky-clean hair, put the hair in a plastic cap. Sit under the hooded dryer for 30 minutes to an hour. Once you’ve finished the treatment, rinse out the treatment with cold water. Then, style as your heart desires. If you have really dry hair, you’ll want to do a deep conditioning treatment every single time you shampoo.
