Hello dear readers
Well, I have an amazing recipe to share with you all. I’m calling it the ultimate hair smoothie!
For some odd reason I started losing hair- it was after my protective style so maybe it had something to do with it. This hair mask literally revived my hair and stopped losing hair since.
The ingredients are what we have at home- well, most of them. If you’re like me naturalista then you’d have them all. If not then take notes honey! 😉 My theory is to work with what we have and make the best of what we have. We have what we need, we just need to open our eyes and look outside the box and voila! we’ve made something out of nothing. As you may or may not know my mission is also to work with less chemicals if not avoid them completely. Our body is full of toxins which is why we need to avoid using chemicals and detox regularly. But that’s another subject for another time.
Let’s get to work!
Why you should do it!
Eggs are rich in protein and since hair is composed of 70 percent keratin protein it helps rebuild damaged hair by filling in weakened spots along the hair strand and prevents hair loss.
Spirulina is being widely used for promoting hair growth and to combat hair problems like thinning hair and baldness. Henna helps prevent dandruff, nourishes your scalp and cleanses dirt. It’s a great conditioner for your hair and adds shine and volume to it.
Yoghurt reduces hair fall and treats your scalp. You need yoghurt as it’s the main liquid ingredient holding all of your other ingredients together- the glue! Castor oil is good for hair growth as it helps increase circulation to the scalp. It works well against dandruff and scalp infections.
For this special hair smoothie we need:
1 egg- if you have a lot of hair 2 eggs
2 tablespoons of spirulina powder
4-5 tablespoons of yoghurt
1 and half tablespoon of henna
1 tablespoon of castor oil ( it’s very thick so don’t use more than this)
1 tablespoon of olive oil
First mix the yoghurt with your eggs and add your henna. Then slowly add castor oil and then mix well your spirulina powder into it and finally add your olive oil- preferably extra virgin oil and marry all your ingredients well.
Apply on your scalp and hair strands too- keep it on for 3 hours. Make sure you put a plastic bag on to lock heat. Wash it off and the result is AAhhmazing!!!! You’ll notice the results immediately. My hair was so clean it actually made that sound your teeth make when they’re squeaky-clean. The hair was well moisturised and soft but still has volume. This mask can be used as natural shampoo, so no need to wash it with a shampoo afterwards. No chemicals and we’re winning.
After your wash you can rinse it with rice water, apple cider vinegar and water rinse, camomile tea rinse or green tea rinse. Will talk about this in the near future. Till then stay tuned!
