What Natural Solutions are there for
Beauty is vain. Most often, vanity has caused a lot of
people to spending too much on things unaware that there are many
alternatives to the products they are buying. What is better than
to buy or make use of things coming from natural ingredients? There
are products that are affordable and effective at the same time.
If you do have an oily hair, buying hair products to treat an oily
scalp from store-bought products can be expensive and most of the
time ineffective. Some of these products would either dry your
scalp making it flaky as these products may contain unpronounceable
chemicals. There are helpful solutions to your oily hair that you
can try and apply at home. All natural solutions tend to reduce the
oil from your scalp and make your hair looking and smelling fresh
and clean. The following are some tips to treat your oily hair
through the use of the following natural solutions:
1. Recycle your
hair shampoo bottles and prepare basic shampoo mixtures.
You need to recycle your expensive shampoo bottles to put the
mixtures you prepared. With a basic shampoo recipe, combine one
part distilled water with two parts liquid castile soap. Shake the
bottle gently before use. Do not make mixtures for more than one
week's worth as there are no preservatives included extending the
useful life. Herbs can be alternative mixtures added to your basic
To prepare one:
Bring half a cup of water to a boil
then add two tablespoons of fresh mint and a tablespoon of rosemary.
Steep the herbs for 20 minutes then strain the mixture. Add two
tablespoons of the infusion to ¼ cup of the basic shampoo recipe
every other day.
On alternate days, add ½ a teaspoon of aloe vera gel and 1
tablespoon of lemon juice to ¼ cup of shampoo. Squeeze fresh gel out
of an aloe vera plant if you've got one. Add three or four drops of
witch hazel extract for a great smell and astringent properties.
2. Rinse well. Rinse your hair well
after applying the shampoo mixture. Oily hair needs two rounds of
washing to get it completely clean. You may give your scalp a
massage as you wash your hair.
3. Use a conditioner or any natural conditioning mixture. Apply
conditioners only to the tips of your hair especially when your ends
tend to be dry,
frizzy, or riddled with
split ends. Rinse your hair completely. If
you do not wish to put conditioner but instead plan of rinsing using
natural solutions, the following are solutions that you should
Boil a pint of water then steep three peppermint tea bags for five
minutes. Remove the bags, allow the tea to cool, and then add a
teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. Use this mixture as a finishing
rinse. This solution acts as a tonic for the scalp and removes soap
residues that can weigh down oily hair. It also smells wonderful.
So why take the plunge of putting all your money in
buying expensive and ineffective hair mixtures to treat your oily
hair. Natural solutions are safe and inexpensive. They also allow
you to wear a gorgeous, clean and fresh hair without making your
hair look greasy and dumpy. Look great and apply natural solutions
to your oily hair instead.
