Coconut oil for hair
Coconut oil has multiple benefits for your beauty rituals; it has been hailed as a natural beauty all-rounder in recent years, with uses ranging from makeup removal to teeth whitening. Is coconut oil good for your hair? The benefits of coconut oil are well established. It is known to be incredibly moisturizing, especially when used as a coconut oil hair mask. How to use coconut oil on hair? Warm around two tablespoons in the microwave for a minute and apply all over your hair. Leave on for around twenty minutes - it will leave your hair feeling silky smooth. Attention all acne prone skin! If you do choose to apply coconut oil on your hair, make sure you wash your face and back after you have washed your hair - coconut oil is highly occlusive so if you are prone to breakouts you need to make sure contact with your skin is minimal.
Avocado hair mask
Guacamole or soft hair? Soft hair please.
We don’t have many things in common with Victoria Secret models but apparently a love of avocados is one. Brazilian bombshell, Alessandra Ambrosio, has raved about avocado hair mask in many interviews over the years. Alessandra has used the fruit in her hair since she was a child - her mother used to mix it with essential oils to create a nourishing at home treatment. Simply mash the avocado and apply the paste to your hair or add an oil of your choice. Leave this mixture of avocado oil and commence with your hair washing routine for runway worthy results.
Apple Cider Vinegar for hair
Apple Cider Vinegar is the ultimate hair cleanser. Many of us use various products in our hair from oils to dry shampoo, which can leave a residue in your hair, effecting the colour and shine. Using Apple Cider Vinegar for your hair effectively exfoliates your scalp and clarifies your hair whilst removing this product buildup - leaving you with fresh, clean hair that also happens to be incredibly shiny! Pour a generous amount Apple Cider Vinegar on your hair before you shampoo and leave for a minimum of three minutes to get the best results.
The only downside is the smell so shampoo afterwards to make sure you still get that fresh hair scent! Still worried about smelly hair? Choose one of La Brûmée’s fragranced hair mists to ensure your hair smells as good as it looks!
Castor Oil for hair
Castor oil is an extremely popular DIY hair product and is used by many to try to encourage eyelash and eyebrow growth. It is thought to be equally effective on hair when massaged into the scalp. This castor oil is beneficial to your hair with its moisturising property that helps to condition and protect the hair. Messaging your scalp with castor oil can help to increase circulation to the scalp and encourage new hair growth. However, this oil is slightly sticky so unless you have very thick hair you will want to make sure you wash your hair after your at home massage!
