We are often exposed to so many external factors like the UV rays of the sun, environmental pollution, etc. This can cause damage to your hair to a great extent. Also, frequent use of all styling and heating products may also make our hair thin and dry. Therefore, it is important to take the right measures in regaining healthy hair.
Usage of ready-made products will only further damage the hair. So it is always better to go for natural remedies. In this article, we'll be giving you a simple remedy using olive oil and honey. You can use it as a mask on your hair. Both the ingredients are highly beneficial in treating dull and damaged hair.
Let us see how to prepare this simple DIY honey and olive oil hair mask for damaged hair.
DIY Olive Oil And Honey Mask For Damaged Hair
What do you require?
- 4-5 tsp of olive oil
- 3-4 tsp of honey
How to do?
In a bowl, take olive oil and raw honey. Mix both the ingredients well with the help of a spoon. Now the next part is to comb your hair with a wide-toothed comb to detangle your hair. Now divide your hair first into two sections and further section the hair into two more sections. Now clip all the sections separately.
Start applying the hair mask with the help of a brush section by section. Now clip the sections on which the mask is applied. Repeat the same process on the entire hair. Now in order to prevent the mess you can cover your hair with a shower cap. Let the mask stay on your hair for about 30-45 minutes.
Later you can rinse it off using a mild sulfate-free shampoo with normal water. You can also use a conditioner. Finally, let your hair air dry. Instant shiny tresses are all yours! Follow this simple remedy at least once a week.
Benefits Of Olive Oil
Olive oil is yet another ingredient that is extensively used in cooking. But it is equally beneficial when used on the hair. Olive oil has unsaturated fatty acids that make the hair stronger. Vitamin A and E and antioxidants help in deeply nourishing the hair follicles and making the hair smooth and soft. Giving your hair an olive oil massage at least once a week can help in treating most of your hair care issues.
Benefits Of Honey
Being a natural humectant honey helps in hydrating the scalp and hair and thus keeping it moisturised. Honey is the best ingredient to treat dull and damaged hair. The antimicrobial properties in honey help in treating the build ups on the scalp and thus prevent other scalp issues like dandruff, flaky scalp, etc. Moreover, the antioxidants in honey rejuvenate the hair and thus give soft and silky hair.
