Organic Hair Shine
You probably already have one ingredient needed for hair health right in your refrigerator and it’s as natural as you can get. That ingredient is an egg. For a lovely, natural shine to your hair (that’s free from harmful chemicals), use one egg (for short hair) two for longer hair.
Crack the egg open into a bowl, mix it well and put it in your hair the same way you would store bought conditioner. Let the egg sit in your hair for anywhere from two to five minutes and then rinse the egg out.
There are even organic beauty recipes you can do at home that can cover up the gray in your hair. It’s no secret that many people want to cover up gray hair. Having gray hair signifies to some people that the downside of aging has begun.
Organic Hair Color
Never mind that some of Hollywood’s most attractive men and women sport gray hair. If you don’t like having gray hair, it doesn’t matter what others do with theirs. Before you fall into the false belief that to cover gray hair you must buy a potentially poisonous hair dye, you should realize that you can also dye your hair naturally.
One of the most popular phrases you’ll hear is ‘dye with henna’ and some companies will promote this as all natural. But what you might not know is some of the companies add chemicals to henna dye, making their product not organic and not safe.
You can dye your hair naturally using spices like rosemary or sage. You can also color your hair using tea or coffee if you happen to have dark hair. It’s not as fast as using a store bought box of hair dye, but it is safer for your body.
You brew the tea or coffee (make it twice as strong as you normally would) and let it come to room temperature. When that’s done, you just rinse your hair with the coffee or tea. You’ll need to repeat this step anywhere from three to five times before you’ll notice a difference.
If you’re into soap making and are looking for organic beauty recipes you can do at home that involve creating your own soap, one of the best soaps you can make has olive oil as the main ingredient.
The great thing about making your own soap is that you can give it your own fragrance depending on what ingredients you add, to make it uniquely yours. Creating your own organic products from recipes you use at home is one of the best ways you can pamper your body.
