Beauty Tip: Super Food for Super Hair  

Posted by: Foxy Frangipani in

I absolutely love lazy weekends, alone at home. That's when I get to read all I want. I was reading Seventeen mag April 2010 and find this article rather interesting. Hair treatments with real food.

I am not sure if I'll risk ants into my bathroom, plus it will be super messy which means - cleaning up the bathroom (ugghhhh). However the coffee rinse sounds tolerable...

 To eliminate frizz:
~ Fruit Smoothie with bananas and cantaloupes.
Potassium-rich bananas and cantaloupes help to soften rough strands, while a few drops of olive oil keep hair smooth.

*Mix 1 banana, 1/4 cataloupe, 2 tbsp yoghurt, 1 tbsp olive oil in blender.
*Apply to damp unwashed hair, comb thru.
*Allow to sink for 15-20 mins, rinse. Shampoo and condition as usual.

To boost color:
~ Coffee rinse
Coffee intensifies darker shades to make hair really shine. 

*Brew any type of plain unflavored coffee, let it cool.
*Pour enough coffee over dry hair till completely soaked. Comb thru.
*Cover head with shower cap, let set for 20-30 mins
*Rinse, shampoo. Final rinse with cold water to maximize shine.

Fix split ends:
~ Avocado mask

*Combine 1 can of coconut millk (shines hair), 1 mashed avocado, 1/4 cup honey
*Slather on dry hair, focusing on damaged ends. Cover with shower cap.
*Blast hair with heat from blow dryer for 5 mins, then allow to soak for 30 mins.
*Rinse, dont shampoo. (eeeks! wont this be oily and messy!?)
